Air City: Episode 8
by | June 11, 2007 | 22 Comments
Air City, you pain me. Not because you’re bad (you’re mediocre enough), but because the solutions to your myriad problems seem so obvious. Why won’t you use them? Normally, I just watch my dramas and decide whether I like them or not. I don’t get into the fan culture and... More »

Bad Couple: Episodes 3 & 4
by | June 10, 2007 | 33 Comments
Aie, dilemma, dilemma. I wasn’t going to recap Bad Couple because I just don’t have the time to do more than two series at a time (and even then it’s pushing it). But I’m liking Bad Couple so much (so cute! so fun! and the main couple are great together)... More »

Air City: Episode 7

So, the bad news: Air City is starting to bore me. The good news: The men are seriously hot. Particulars: 1. Lee Jung Jae pissed off and all hot and bothered. 2. Lee Jung Jae punching douchebags 3. Lee Jung Jae in aviator shades and leather jacket 4. Lee Jung... More »

Flowers For My Life: Episode 7
by | June 7, 2007 | 14 Comments
(Picture reads: DAE BAK) Episode 7 was a great example of a kdrama that managed to work well as a separate episode with its own theme and story, as well as part of the larger series arc. This is what I wish Air City would do better — tell a... More »

SBS’s Bad Couple / 불량커플
by | June 5, 2007 | 43 Comments
This past weekend, another weekend drama premiered, SBS’s BAD COUPLE (불량커플), the third in its “bad / 불량” series after Bad Housewife and Bad Family. (Note that “bad” doesn’t mean necessarily evil or malicious, but more in the vein of “unsuitable” or “inferior”.) I don’t believe the same people are... More »

Air City: Episode 6
by | June 4, 2007 | 14 Comments
Um, yeah, so my complaint with Episode 5 still stands in Episode 6, although 6 was a little better than 5. I think my explanation of the issue was a little confusing, but here’s a simple way to put it (I hope): Air City is cutting up its episodes into... More »

Air City: Episode 5
by | June 2, 2007 | 19 Comments
I have a huge complaint with Episode 5. It’s not that it’s a bad episode, or badly made, or badly acted — on the contrary. In fact, it would be a minor complaint if the fix weren’t so simple and obvious. With exactly the same music, and acting, and footage,... More »

Flowers For My Life: Episode 6
by | June 1, 2007 | 19 Comments
I’m so dumb. It took me this long to make the connection: The series is called Flowers For My Life, and the episodes feature flowers in a different, yet prominent way. I’d noticed the flowers — different kinds each time — but the connection hadn’t occurred to me. Sometimes they’re... More »

Feelings / Neukkim / 느낌 (1994)
by | May 29, 2007 | 37 Comments
With the start of MBC’s new drama Air City, my somewhat dormant crush on Lee Jung-jae woke up in full force and slapped me in the face. Sure, I’d seen (and enjoyed) some of his movies, like 2001′s Il Mare with Jeon Ji-hyun, but I’m a drama series freak at... More »

Flowers For My Life: Episode 5
by | May 29, 2007 | 25 Comments
It makes me sad that more people aren’t watching Flowers For My Life. It’s a series that shows that kdramas can be touching without being sappy, and funny without being jokey and gag-based. Funny how a series handling death can be so delightful. Episode 5 was the first to make... More »
