I love it when the weather turns slightly chilly, and you feel like reaching for a blanket and snuggling up on the couch with some good dramas. Maybe in honor of Halloween I should watch something scary? I’m taking recommendations! I’ll just have to convince javabeans to watch it with me, because there’s always safety... More »

The truth can be painful, especially coming from those you love, but at some... More »

You never saw three sadder sacks than our trio of Noryangjin Idiots, but at least they have each other to lean on when life gets rough. Even when they’re spitting mad with each other, they still manage to be there for each other for support and sympathy. Loves may come and go, and hearts will... More »
