My Sassy Girl aiming for double revival on big and small screens
by | June 19, 2014 | 64 Comments
Rom-com classic My Sassy Girl wasn’t merely a box-office hit, it propelled its two leads to stardom, bolstered (or maybe even kickstarted) the spread of Hallyu when it was still in its incipient stages, and set the bar for rom-coms to follow. So it’s no surprise that there have been numerous attempts at spin-offs, remakes,... More »

50th Baeksang Arts Awards
by | May 27, 2014 | 192 Comments
Spread the love around must’ve been this year’s mantra at the 50th annual Baeksang Awards, where the (somewhat) best of both film and television come to pick up shiny trophies. Once you get past the initial Huh, what, why? of the nominee list, the winners list is no surprise. There wasn’t a big sweep by... More »

You From Another Star: Episode 21 (Final)
by | February 27, 2014 | 468 Comments
It’s overrrrrrrr, we can all resume breathing now. You From Another Star ended today, and I admit to going into the finale still wondering how the heck they would get our couple out of their cosmic fix. There are a few spots I think got glossed over, but I’m left with a solid appreciation for... More »

You From Another Star: Episode 19
by | February 20, 2014 | 316 Comments
Way to tug the heart and draw out the tears. While I would say the overall trajectory of this episode is rather expected, the drama drops a few surprises in our laps, namely in showing us just exactly how deep the love runs. Min-joon certainly takes the adage Actions speak louder than words to extremes,... More »

You From Another Star: Episode 18
by | February 19, 2014 | 207 Comments
This episode really made my day: So sweet, so heart-twisting, and so full of random hilarity to take the edge off the pain. That’s a recipe for a fantastic episode. More than the one-off jokes, though, I love that the comedy in this show functions narratively as well as to provide laughs, providing character moments... More »

Movie Review: The Berlin File
by | February 16, 2014 | 24 Comments
Sweeping both the domestic box office as well as last year’s biggest awards ceremonies, espionage thriller The Berlin File edged out fellow spy film Covertly, Grandly to take its place as the fifth highest grossing film of 2013 behind films like The Face Reader and Miracle In Cell No. 7, which have been on my...

You From Another Star: Episode 17

Big decisions are made and directions chosen, leading this episode to its all-time high rating of 27%. We also get a sassy cameo from a familiar character (random drama crossover!) to throw in some laughs, not that Chun Song-yi has any trouble supplying those on her own. I do love that even as Song-yi has... More »

You From Another Star: Episode 16

This episode is chock full of adorable, which is on one hand hugely entertaining, but on the other hand also unsettling because giving a couple happy moments with so many episodes left to go means that pain can’t be far behind. Time is ticking in earnest now, and has a way of putting a damper... More »

I love when the shoe is on the other foot, and in this case it means it’s Min-joon’s turn to stew in jealousy and pettiness. It isn’t that I can’t understand his reasons for keeping his distance, but given that he’s trapped by his need to be noble for his love’s sake, I can’t deny... More »

You From Another Star: Episode 14

Well, we survived the week with only one episode, so now we can stop with the withdrawal shakes and rest assured of a second dose tomorrow. Which is a good thing, because I need more happy fuzzy moments to cling to in the midst of our angst parade. I do think there’s hope just around... More »
