Life Lessons from a Mixed Bag of Dramas [Year in Review, Part 2]
by | December 11, 2012 | 148 Comments
2012 was certainly a mixed bag: I saw plenty of action dramas and then I saw fluffy dramas that made no sense. There were dramas I loved, dramas that I liked enough, and then dramas that I hated. It was a tough year for me, and I felt I had bad luck in choosing which... More »

Haeundae Lovers: Episode 16 (Final)

THE END IS HERE! It’s a pretty awesome ending for this lighthearted drama, as I can’t count how many times I’ve giggled at all the cute moments, just wishing I had a Tae Sung-oppa to call my own and save me when I’m in trouble! It started off sweet, and I’m glad it ends sweetly too.... More »

Haeundae Lovers: Episode 15

This drama is about to end, but it’s not letting up on the drama! We get to see Tae Sung be all prosecutor-y, which is sort of like the first time ever in this series. Even though he was one, he acted like a detective, a prosecutor who only gets yelled at by the boss,... More »

Haeundae Lovers: Episode 14

Haeundae Lovers gave us a woozy this week with three episodes in one week. Guess they’re pressed for time. Episodes 14 and 15 aired on Monday, while episode 16 aired on Tuesday. This was an emotional episode that just emphasizes my love of Kim Kang Woo and his portrayal of Tae Sung. It’s incredibly sad but... More »

Haeundae Lovers: Episode 13

For a very melodramatic episode, I didn’t feel too bogged down with emotions. Thank you, writer, for keeping this drama light. With three episodes left, there needs to be a few obstacles to be thrown our heroes’ paths – one of them is facing their true feelings and morals.... More »

Haeundae Lovers: Episode 12

Best episode by far! I finally went through all the emotions that usually occurs within a Korean drama in one episode. I felt that this episode hit me in all the right places – it was heartwarming and funny, ridiculously over the top and maddening, and then just when I got that hopeful feeling everything... More »

For as much as I was annoyed with Joon Hyuk last week, he certainly has become less pathetic with this episode. I still have conflicting emotions about him, but I cannot deny that this man is smart and resourceful. At least, smarter and more resourceful than all the other characters here. There is only one...

Haeundae Lovers: Episode 10

Cute episode! Why? Because finally our leads are being sweet with one another! I’m glad that Sora is getting over her prejudices towards Tae Sung, which always felt unfair and contrived. Tae Sung was nothing but kind to her, and he had amnesia! He never knew his real family, and no one can pick their family!... More »

Haeundae Lovers: Episode 9

I’m starting to feel more for Tae Sung, as he’s realizing that being up top on the social stratus can be a very lonely place indeed. (No wonder our K-drama chaebols are so cold!) Poor guy only wanted to regain his memories, hoping that finding his family will do that, but he just found the... More »
