Alice in Cheongdam-dong: Episode 6

How do I describe this episode: it’s 50% cute, 40% Park Shi-hoo, and 10% sweet. And that adds up to… 100% of full crazy fun that makes my heart lift with giddiness. I never thought we’d get this kind of episode from the way this drama started off, but I’m thankful for it. Ya hear... More »

This world is so rich with story, and yet so small. I should not be surprised that everyone is intertwined as it is a Korean drama, but everyone in this world is believably connected for good reason. It’s just, in a small world, no secrets can be kept for long.... More »

Alice in Cheongdam-dong: Episode 4

Our obligatory makeover episode! More revelations to be made, but what I’m most thankful for is that despite Se-kyung’s 180-degree reversal in her perspective towards life, she still cannot get over her own values. That’s the only thing slowing her down in her journey through the depths of hell  rabbit hole.... More »

Alice in Cheongdam-dong: Episode 3

For a drama that’s incredibly bleak and melodramatic in its portrayal of poverty, there are plenty of golden moments in this episode – all thanks to Seung-jo. If this drama is supposed to be a comedy, it’s all because of him. The beloved In-chan oppa ends his cameo with this episode, and while many are... More »

We are given a few more details in this episode as the Revenge Merry-Go-Round takes off! A little more insight into Se-kyung’s motivations, and a little more insight into the world we’re plunging into. It’s a strange feeling to be watching a drama that’s so aware the shallow-ness of Cheongdam-dong and so serious about it.... More »

Alice in Cheongdam-dong: Episode 1

Whee! The first episode of Alice in Cheongdam-dong, all for my *hubby* Park Shi-hoo. I had no idea what to expect for this drama, since the synopses that have come out so far don’t really put it in a good light (a hardworking young woman giving up her ambitions just to marry rich?!). I’m hoping for more... More »

Posters and more stills for Alice in Cheongdam-dong

These additional stills are more of the same, but the bright, vivid posters add a nice dash of color to SBS’s upcoming weekend drama Alice in Cheongdam-dong. The top poster is pretty self-explanatory, featuring our leads in poses and a formation that scream “light, cute rom-com”; that’s Moon Geun-young as the Alice-like lead in the... More »

Here’s just a little bit more about Alice in Cheongdam-dong, which has been really stingy with promos and details, hasn’t it? We’ve gotten a few stills here and there and a (terrible and) terribly short first teaser, but at least the second teaser actually shows us footage from the series proper, giving us a sense...

by | November 13, 2012 | 79 Comments
It doesn’t tell us anything about the story, but the first preview clip for SBS’s Alice in Cheongdam-dong lays out the light, romantic, fantasy ambiance to the weekend rom-com series. Described as centering around the ordinary heroine’s “project to make herself into a Cheongdam-dong daughter-in-law” (ugh; sorry, that description just keeps turning me off), the... More »
