First of all, I’d like to apologize for the lateness of these recaps. Things are rather busy with school at the moment, and unfortunately, my education comes first. (Trust me, though, I would much rather be writing these recaps than writing a paper on Thomas King. My heart is with... More »

On one hand, I’m a little bummed that The Return of Iljimae has been postponed, just when I was getting excited about it. On the other hand, the drama that will take over the time slot intended for Iljimae is General Hospital 2. I wasn’t at all into the idea... More »

The World They Live In: Episode 2
by | October 28, 2008 | 63 Comments
The good feeling continues. By that, I don’t mean that The World They Live In is feel-good, because it isn’t. It isn’t depressing or tragic or melodramatic, either, but it’s in that category of thought-provoking entertainment. Neither too light nor too heavy, although there are dashes of both. Writer Noh...

I’ll just give you a second to let that image sink in. (I mean, really, really sink in that this is indeed two of Korea’s hottest rising pretty boys made famous by two of Korea’s biggest youth drama hits, Joo Ji-hoon of Goong and Kim Jae-wook of Coffee Prince.) October... More »

Manseh! Thank god for Noh Hee-kyung. When dealing with mediocre or iffy dramas, I often don’t know how I feel about them until I’m several episodes in; I want to give the drama time to grow on me. With quality dramas, though, you can usually tell right away, and The... More »
