Omo, omo! Awesomely awesome Secret Garden spoiler
by | December 1, 2010 | 225 Comments
OMG. If you don’t want to be spoiled, don’t click, since this is a photo spoiler. You are warned. I had thought the last stills for Secret Garden (depicting Hyun Bin’s character in Ha Ji-won’s body) were plenty hilarious, but this one REALLY takes the cake.... More »

Mary Stayed Out All Night: Episode 7
by | November 30, 2010 | 188 Comments
Finally, some DRAMA up in this drama! It’s certainly about time, I tell ya. Things finally come to a head, punches are thrown, lips get kissed, and everyone gets spun around due to the overabundance of those pesky feelings. The last episode sincerely had me believing the two boys were... More »

Behold, the tracksuit that would not die
by | November 30, 2010 | 170 Comments
[NOT REALLY SPOILERY BUT…] Oh, this just cracks me up. So. Hard. Secret Garden watchers will be familiar with Hyun Bin’s obsession (or rather, Joo-won’s) with his expensive, hand-stitched, sequined Italian tracksuit, which everyone else mocks as tacky and unfashionable. Despite the fact that Joo-won has been the butt of... More »

Mary Stayed Out All Night: Episode 6
by | November 29, 2010 | 148 Comments
How can two characters be so incredibly cute, and the rest of the drama so boring? I wish the magnetism and chemistry of Moon Geun-young and Jang Geun-seok could somehow spill into the other parts of the drama when they’re not onscreen, but sad to say, the screen only lights... More »

Runaway to end with a special broadcast
by | November 29, 2010 | 23 Comments
Although an extension for Runaway Plan B has been nixed, the finale will be pushed back a week thanks to a recent pre-emption; last week’s scheduled episode of Episode 18 was postponed because of the Asia Games. That means 18 and 19 air this week, and the finale broadcasts on... More »

Secret Garden: Episode 6
by | November 29, 2010 | 238 Comments
Oh, the goodness. There is SO MUCH of it to go around. I knew it’d be explosive when they started inhabiting each other’s bodies, but this? This is drama heaven. I can’t promise that the schtick won’t grow old, but if Hyun Bin and Ha Ji-won keep playing it up... More »
