Coffee Prince: Fifteenth Cup
by | August 20, 2007 | 158 Comments
(“Can you hear me now?”)   One thing I’ve noticed about the acting in Coffee Prince: Aside from the generally solid performances given by the main characters in any given scene, also worth pointing out are the reaction shots. By which I mean: the responses of those not performing the... More »

Hello Franceska / 안녕 프란체스카

 Hehe, note that with Taereung National Village, I said I’d found a series to watch, not the series to watch. The great thing about watching shows that have long since finished airing is that now, I can watch without worrying about keeping pace with the new episodes every week. This... More »

Despite the winningness of Coffee Prince, I’m starting to veer from cheery immersion into overload territory, and before that flares into full-on burnout, I thought I’d turn my attentions elsewhere to balance things out a bit. I’ve started watching some other series, dabbling in a sea of first episodes, trying... More »

Coffee Prince: Fourteenth Cup

Cuuuuuuute. I’m also no longer worried about the issue of familial opposition. Do I expect drama? Of course. But will it be the heart-wrenching kind? If it is, of course I’ll take it, but I’m not concerned, because Han Gyul isn’t a rebellious adolescent. He’s a mature, thoughtful, decisive 30-year-old... More »

Coffee Prince: Thirteenth Cup

This episode was, as I suspected it might be, entirely full of small, sweet moments. As much as my romantic-loving side would love to believe things remain in an Episode 13 zone of optimistic happiness, the side that’s all too familiar with dramas can only brace itself for what lies... More »

Can you tell I’m having a slow work day? LOL. Just one more Coffee Prince-related post before the weekend! (I swear, I’m Coffee Prince-ing myself out.) I found this interesting article and (what else?) felt the need to share. I love this kind of behind-the-scenes writerly stuff. Full credits and... More »

Update: Coffee Prince extension still pending
by | August 10, 2007 | 16 Comments
All right, first, let me just say that I don’t think we have to worry about Coffee Prince, or even Yoon Eun Hye. I think a lot of the recent “news” coming out is a bit alarmist, which is a general flaw of the Korean entertainment media, which I think... More »

Status of Coffee Prince, Yoon Eun Hye’s health

  I’m not in the habit of reporting news, but there seems to be a lot of interest and confusion in what’s going on with the end of Coffee Prince. A few days ago (the articles I’ve seen are dated August 8; keep in mind Korea’s more than a half-day... More »
