The Year in Review, Part 1: The Best of 2007
by | December 26, 2007 | 58 Comments
A month ago, I asked y’all, How was 2007 for you? I was thinking of the year-end wrap-up I would be writing, and wanted to see how you thought the dramas were this past year. I’ll be rolling out my year-in-review posts over the next few days (because one post just isn’t enough!). I also... More »

“Wad of Gum — I love you” There’s so much I want to say about this last episode, I didn’t know how to fit it all into a post. So I decided not to worry over what to leave out and just break up the recap into two posts. I really can’t say enough in... More »

Flowers For My Life: Episode 15

I was a little hesitant to watch the last two episodes of Flowers For My Life, because I felt I had to prepare myself adequately for the sadness. Also, I wasn’t sure I was ready to say goodbye to such a wonderful, superlative drama. But I needn’t have worried; I’ve seen the end of the... More »

I hope the delay for this summary doesn’t suggest that this episode wasn’t good. Flowers For My Life is a wonderful drama and it’s going straight to the (almost-)top of my all-time favorites. You know, I’ve seen a lot of dramas in marathon sessions after all the episodes have already aired, and when you watch... More »

What a great episode. I cried practically all the way through it, but it was a good cry. The satisfying kind. So many great conversations, and lots of great acting. And, as always, gorgeous cinematography. (Random) SONG OF THE DAY Rumble Fish – “Smile Again.” [ zShare download ] [Audio clip: view full post to... More »

Thankfully, things lightened up a bit this week! As much as I’m enjoying Flowers For My Life, last week was starting to bum me out because it was starting to get sad. At least we have a lot of sweet moments between Ho Sang and Hana here, and I think I’ve figured out a way... More »

^^ The flowers Ran puts in her hair. Oh, and this episode tells me her name is actually Lan, not Ran (the Korean letter used doubles for both “l” and “r” and I don’t know Vietnamese to have guessed Lan). But I’ll stick to Ran for now to stay consistent. (Random) SONG OF THE DAY... More »

Ah, Flowers For My Life, you keeeeel me. So many great moments in this episode, and the ending sequence was wonderful. I’ve said this many times before, how I don’t care about ratings, but this is utter travesty. The last episode garnered ratings of 3.3%, and that’s just wrong. It’s criminal. How can utter pedestrian... More »

Korean Dramas & Family Relations
by | June 14, 2007 | 40 Comments
Lately, I’ve noticed something about the dramas I’ve been watching, which is that I’ve been finding — more so than the big dramatic romantic turns — that the most affecting, moving moments are family-related. There’s just something that Korean dramas do that captures family elements so well. They don’t try to make you cry with... More »
