Annnnnnnd another year comes to a close. Big thanks to our recap minions HeadsNo2, gummimochi, and kaedejun for sharing their reviews with us and joining the spirited discussion for the Editors’ Picks this year. There wasn’t even any hair-pulling, and only one person lost an eye! It’s been a great year for K-dramas and an... More »

If I Could Turn Back Time [Year in Review, Part 4]
by | December 21, 2012 | 155 Comments
My first year-end review! I was so excited for this opportunity that I decided to watch as many dramas as I could in preparation this year, and all but forced myself to doggedly stick with obvious train wrecks because I figured, “Hey, at least it’ll give me something to write about.” If I learned anything,...

2012: Something for everyone? [Year in Review, Part 1]
by | December 8, 2012 | 263 Comments
Review extravaganza time! I know: Already? It feels like just the other day I was killing myself to corral all my thoughts in coherent fashion in a monster review of 2011’s dramas, and already it’s time to lose sleep wrangling my thoughts together for 2012. Time sure flies when you’re having fun, or old. Guess... More »

Dr. Jin: Episode 22 (Final)
by | August 18, 2012 | 215 Comments
After extensions and preemptions, weekend suckstravaganza Dr. Jin has finally come to an end. Some would say twenty-two episodes too late. Okay, I said it. Shows as spectacularly awful as this don’t come around too often, and they aren’t a palate cleanser as much as a sledgehammer to the teeth. To the production team’s credit,... More »

Song Seung-heon on acting, ratings, and Dr. Jin
by | August 13, 2012 | 185 Comments
There’s a strange dichotomy about Song Seung-heon that occasionally crops up, and this interview is another example of it. Essentially, he’ll act in a project and be mediocre in it despite incredible hype, and occasionally even be terrible. I’ll wonder how on earth he got to be as famous as he is, then remember The...

Dr. Jin: Episode 21
by | August 6, 2012 | 94 Comments
You wanted answers? You don’t get them. No, seriously. You don’t. Luckily it’s not the worst thing that ever happened, since the majority of the episode focuses on things that are Not Hyuk, and I’m not one to look a gift jar in the fetus. Or is it a gift fetus in the jar? Either... More »

Dr. Jin: Episode 20
by | August 2, 2012 | 114 Comments
If there’s one good thing to be said about Dr. Jin, it’s that Stuff Always Happens. On the flip side, most of it doesn’t make a lick of sense. History is royally screwed and there’s only one man and his brain fetus to save it… Or is there? We definitely get a lot more questions... More »

Dr. Jin: Episode 19
by | July 30, 2012 | 145 Comments
This episode takes us for a ride as far as the time travel/time slip/parallel universe mechanics go, as Hyuk puts his all into saving the entire Catholic population in Joseon with some pretty questionable aftereffects. When will this boy ever learn? Is even posing that question too much wishful thinking on my part?... More »

Olympics-preempted drama schedule update
by | July 26, 2012 | 74 Comments
So there’s good news and bad news this time. Or, perhaps bad news wrapped in a delicious candy coating? Um… absence makes the heart grow fonder? Is this working? I hear that patience and fortitude are character-building. Or so they say. Obviously I wouldn’t know. You’d think the broadcasters would’ve planned ahead, given that the... More »

Dr. Jin: Episode 18
by | July 25, 2012 | 152 Comments
Leave it to Dr. Jin to show us the miracle of childbirth via C-section in all its horrifying high-definition glory, because, why not? Young-rae spanks babies back from the brink and Hyuk finds something he actually cares about in an episode that nosedives into its political plots and plans, and one that finally gives Hyuk... More »
