The Year in Review, Part 4: The Rest of 2007

Yes, my last post was “The Best of 2007,” but rather than put up a Worst list, I’m lumping them all together with The Rest. Not all the dramas I’m mentioning here are bad; they’re just dramas I watched that didn’t belong in the Best list. SONG OF THE DAY War of Money OST –... More »

(The lovebirds of Bad Couple and Bad Family)   I find the following article (indented stuff in dark blue font is the translated article; the rest are my comments) particularly interesting because I’ve thought this topic over a lot in the past, and pretty much completely disagree — not with the article’s logic, but the...

Bad Couple: Episode 16 (Final)

Don’t worry, that’s just the first scene of the episode. I’d have picked a more cheerful one, but I didn’t want to spoil anything. Even if it is the last episode so there’s not a whole lot I can spoil at this point. (Random) SONG OF THE DAY Sol Flower – “Kiss the Kids,” a... More »

Bad Couple: Episode 15
by | July 22, 2007 | 14 Comments
So here’s the thing. I liked how Bad Couple ended in their last two episodes (15 & 16). I liked the resolutions and the character wrap-up. What I didn’t like, then, was how these resolutions were presented. Story = decent. Execution = hated. I kinda hesitate to give my full honest opinion on the ending... More »

Bad Couple: Episode 14

Ryu Su Young (Gi Chan) is really good this episode. Really good. Nobody does heartfelt cornball adoration as believably and adorably as him. (Random) SONG OF THE DAY Biuret – “사랑해요” (I Love You). I really like the chorus and its intense overlapping harmonies from this song by all-female rock band Biuret. [ zShare download... More »

Bad Couple: Episode 12

(Random) SONG OF THE DAY Kim Dong Wan – “My Love” featuring Eric (and written by Minwoo, I believe?). I mentioned previously that I wasn’t that impressed with Kim Dong Wan’s solo album. There were a few tracks I thought were all right, like this one, which doesn’t take itself too seriously, which is my... More »

Bad Couple: He Said, She Said

While I’m waiting for the latest episode to upload, I figured I’d knock off a quick song-lyric post. They’re the lyrics from the “Gi Chan said”/”Dang Ja said” songs that feature prominently in Bad Couple, since they seem particularly meaningful in context.... More »

Bad Couple: Episode 11

Bad Couple is funny again! Let’s all rejoice. The show’s at its best when Dang Ja’s being her most outrageous, audacious self, and today we saw plenty of the ridiculous to laugh at. (Random) SONG OF THE DAY Lee Minwoo – “La Noche Bonita.” I don’t have a strong opinion on Shinhwa, only that of... More »

Bad Couple: Episode 10
by | July 3, 2007 | 16 Comments
Oh man, this episode was sad too! I think I cried more than I did in Episode 9… but while Episode 9 gradually became sadder and ended at a low (emotional) point, at least Episode 10 swung upward at the end, to give us some more hope. And at least Gi Chan and Dang Ja... More »
