Santa Strikes Back! [Year In Review, Part 6]
by | December 25, 2011 | 101 Comments
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 »

The DramaMeter: highly scientific and foolproof [Year in Review, Part 4]
by | December 21, 2011 | 181 Comments
  Wow, another year of dramas, come and gone. Where does the sanity go? I decided that for this year’s review, I would learn to be impartial and precise, and give systematic mathematical ratings for every show. Because numbers are fun. But then, I found that trying to rate a year’s worth of dramas was... More »

Measuring 2011 on the Sticky Scale [Year in Review, Part 1]

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. This is my fifth year (eek) doing this series, which means you basically know the drill by now. (You can refer to the year-ender tag to catch up on past posts.)... More »

Can’t Lose: Episode 18 (Final)
by | October 20, 2011 | 49 Comments
What a heartwarming, funny, adorable finale for a heartwarming, funny, adorable series. You know what I love about this show? It’s just simple, steadfast, and best of all, it’s earnest. No fancy tricks, not even many surprises. But I walk away from it feeling like every character was worth meeting, and that love – real,... More »

Can’t Lose: Episode 17

As we head into the finale, ends are tied, realizations are come upon, and decisions made. It’s funny to think of how many times this couple has circled around each other, almost reuniting but the pulled back by some badly timed reminder that they’re just not ready for it yet. Normally these forces keeping a... More »

Can’t Lose: Episode 16

What’s better than romance? Why, bromance of course. In the best episode yet, we get the height of both funny and sad, all in one go. The rivalry heats up, an unexpected friendship emerges, and it comes time for Eun-jae to face some harsh consequences for the choices she’s made. There’s only one word for... More »

Can’t Lose: Episode 15

The love triangle is set and the men’s jealousies start to assert themselves, although it’s kind of a lopsided fight, with Hot (Hyung-woo) facing off versus Cold (Seok-hoon). Maybe this is where the we should be welcoming the extension, since it’ll give us more time to delve into Eom Ki-joon’s character instead of trotting him... More »

Can’t Lose: Episode 14

Eom. Ki. Joon. Need I say more? I dunno what happens in this episode, because Eom Ki-joon stops by, and I lose all sense of reason. What? What’s that you say? Eom Ki-joon isn’t the star of this drama? It’s just a cameo? Lalalalala. I can’t hear you!   EPISODE 14 RECAP... More »

Eom Ki-joon cameos on Can’t Lose
by | October 6, 2011 | 40 Comments
Ahh, so this is how they’re going to introduce conflict for Can’t Lose’s extension. Eom Ki-joon (Scent of a Woman, Dream High) is making a recurring appearance on the drama starting from today’s Episode 14 through Episode 17, playing Eun-jae’s (Choi Ji-woo) ex-boyfriend. That means he’ll probably mess with the couple’s budding reconciliation in the... More »

Can’t Lose: Episode 13
by | October 5, 2011 | 27 Comments
Aw, what a cute episode. With our couple now able to admit to themselves how they really feel, we’re one step closer to them admitting it to each other. It’s pretty adorable watching them act like teenagers with a crush, using a third party as an excuse to keep talking to each other — they’re... More »
