Oh My Lady: Episode 12

That’s pretty much the face we all make when looking at Ye-eun, isn’t it? This is actually the first episode that I connected with and made me feel for the characters. It’s a little late, and I don’t think I would have made it this long if I didn’t like... More »

Dang, I know I said Dae-sung should have died, but now that he has, I feel kind of bad about it. It’s just that this is the angst I was expecting in Episode 8; it’s been delayed one very long week, which explains why I agree with some of javabeans’... More »

Prosecutor Princess: Episode 10
by | May 4, 2010 | 82 Comments
I wasn’t completely psyched watching this – even though a lot of the mystery gets elucidated and the love square/pentagon is at full force. This is not a particularly happy episode (nor was it a particularly happy week for PP) but Park Shi Hoo OWNS this episode! His acting and... More »

The teaser video is out for Coffee House, the SBS drama formerly known as Page One, and it’s not half bad. You can’t judge much from a brief 40 seconds, of course, but it looks fun. Also: Kang Ji-hwan! (On a Segway! lolwut?) This is the first we’ve seen of... More »

They will cut you with that stare. Back away slowly. I’ll be honest and say I was not a fan of this episode, and it’s not because of what happens at the end. Oh, there was some stellar acting in it, as ever, and I don’t really have a problem... More »
