Air City: Episode 3

A cute episode, which sounds a bit strange given that it’s as action-packed as before. But with Lee Jung Jae and Choi Ji Woo‘s crackling chemistry showing through in a bit of flirty conversation, the cute factor rates just as high. The director of Air City has done a really... More »

Flowers For My Life: Episode 2
by | May 19, 2007 | 23 Comments
I’m really liking Flowers For My Life a lot. It’s hard to describe the tone by comparing it to other kdramas — it’s not a melodrama. It’s not thriller, action, or family drama. It’s not a trendy drama. And it’s not even a straight “dramatic” drama. It’s hilariously funny —... More »
