If You Like… Noona Romances
by | September 29, 2013 | 248 Comments
If you’re anything like me, your ideal drama hero isn’t the cold chaebol with the icy exterior or even the perfect Daddy Long Legs caretaker.

What the ever-lovin’ reindeer feculence? I get home from my overnight trans-earthian sleigh odyssey, settle back with my hard-earned fifths of whiskey to read up on what I’ve missed in dramaland, and find that they’ve finished the year-end reviews without me? This is an outrage! I know who’s getting their presents revoked this year! Goddamn... More »

Time for another Year In Review series! How did a year pass by so quickly? I guess when you’re busy watching dramas, time flies.

Podcast #7 is here! Warning: Will be long and meandering. Also, drunk. We recorded this podcast (of which there will be three parts) in one monstrously long session, intending to post it in its entirety. The better to monitor the progression of drunkenness, and all that! However, upon listening to our out-of-control rambling, we’ve decided... More »

by | May 28, 2011 | 172 Comments
I know, I’m way behind on weighing in on Baby-Faced Beauty, with it almost halfway done with its 18-episode run. Most of the time if I fall behind on a drama, I’ll just let it go, but I’ve been finding this one sweet and charming — and incredibly pretty to look at — that I... More »

Baby-Faced Beauty’s super cute trailer
by | April 19, 2011 | 190 Comments
The trailer for KBS’s upcoming Baby-Faced Beauty is out, and it’s really pretty adorable. Not that I was expecting it to be bad, but I just expected more of the usual trendy type stuff, not something quite so quirky and refreshing. In case you need a refresher: Baby-Faced Beauty is about a 34-year-old woman who... More »
