Objects in mirror are closer than they appear [Year in Review, Part 4]
by | December 25, 2010 | 155 Comments
I have to say, 2010 was a downright awesome year. It was the year of bromance, the year that Santa came in August, the year when guys had perms and noonas ruled, the year of the sparkly tracksuit and hoi-hoi, the year that makgulli made a comeback. But most importantly for me, it was the... More »

A year of surprises and disappointments [Year in Review, Part 1]
by | December 22, 2010 | 186 Comments
It’s that time of year again, when we look back and size up the past twelve months of dramas. This is my fourth year (this is my fourth year?!) doing this, and it’s always one of my favorite posts to write, because while I love to analyze and parse dramas to within an inch of... More »

Bad Guy: Episode 17 (Final)
by | August 10, 2010 | 342 Comments
Here we are, the finale! I thought it was better than Episode 16, but frankly that isn’t saying much. At least 16 was entertaining and off-the-wall. This episode, as the wrap-up, was more puzzling. I know there was a three-episode cut-down and all that scheduling madness. HOWEVER, the drama finished filming two weeks before the... More »

Bad Guy: Episode 15

Greetings from the North Pole! The girls called me up for a guest spot, so I gladly obliged, because they’ve both been really good this year. Also my reindeer are suing me, and they offered me some legal advice in exchange. I swear I really only ever used “mush” when we were in a big... More »

Kim Nam-gil’s double gets face time in Bad Guy
by | August 4, 2010 | 52 Comments
As I’m sure you’re all aware of by now, the production of SBS drama Bad Guy had to do some mad scrambling when its lead actor Kim Nam-gil was suddenly called for army duty. That also meant extra work for his stand-in, Hong Do-yoon, after Kim left the production. For the most part, Hong was... More »
