Poor Hana is have a terrible, horrible, no-good very bad day — in fact, it’s just an awful day for everyone.

Drinking alone is fine when you just want to wind down, but there’s nothing worse than being... More »

Confidence is a tricky thing, especially when our heroine is in a position of disadvantage to almost everyone around her. It can be difficult to respect someone who doesn’t respect herself, but it’s nice to see that some people around her are starting to care how she’s being treated, and more importantly, how she sees...

The important thing in life isn’t what you accomplish, but how you accomplish it. Shortcuts may get you places, but they won’t get you there with any sort of integrity or value. Jung-seok knows this, and it’s no wonder he judges Hana so harshly when he perceives her to be where she is because of... More »

Raise a glass (or eight) to Drinking Solo’s drink enthusiasts

The experimental hybrid reality-variety-drama project After the Show Ends premiered this weekend on tvN, and I was eager to check it out—mostly because I’ve been curious to see exactly how the show would pull off its genre-crossing format: There’s the show-within-the-show, Iron Lady, which is a fully produced mini-drama of its own, and then there’s...
