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 »

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 »

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 »

  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 »
