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 »

Somewhere Over the K-Drama Rainbow [Year In Review, Part 3]
by | December 18, 2011 | 220 Comments
The other day, I sat down and thought long and hard about all of the various dramas that I’ve seen over the course of my life. I remembered secretly turning on the T.V. as a small child and pressing my nose against the glass, fascinated with the powerful, forbidden emotions at play somewhere inside that... More »

by | December 13, 2011 | 202 Comments
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 »

Dream High has announced the production of a sequel series, and that has everyone in a tizzy trying to either guess the new cast, or offer up their favorites for a fantasy version.

Dream High concert and final thoughts
by | March 1, 2011 | 152 Comments
Yesterday saw the end to Dream High, so Tuesday’s episode was a(n edited) broadcast of the concert, which was the drama’s way of putting a spin on the familiar special broadcast format of behind-the-scenes clips, NGs, and stories from the drama shoots. It also gives me a chance to weigh in on the ending, since... More »

Dream High: Episode 15
by | February 22, 2011 | 355 Comments
I liked Hye-mi from the start, despite her surly behavior, but now I LOVE her, and totally because of her surly ‘tude. Is it me, or did she transform into someone awesome, right under our noses? In this episode she faces not one, but two dilemmas: classical or pop, and Hottie No.1 vs. Hottie No.2.... More »

Dream High: Episode 14
by | February 21, 2011 | 396 Comments
Aw, what a tearjerker of an episode, but in the best possible way — not because it’s been overstuffed with tragedy, but because there’s so much touching, heart-stirring goodness baked into the crust. Also: We were right! I was pretty sure about Baek-hee’s situation at the end of last week, but not convinced the drama... More »
