The one good thing about working one day a year and outsourcing most of your menial labor to elves is that it gives you plenty of time to watch dramas. This year I discovered that I had watched them all wrong before, because when you watch with an open mind, you can gain valuable life... More »

If there’s any constant in dramaland, it’s that you can never underestimate the sneak-attack of a naughty finale, or the surprise resilience of... More »

Jeon Woo-chi: Episode 24 (Final)
by | February 9, 2013 | 30 Comments
And now we come to the end of the line. As far as finales go, this was a pretty solid one: It tied up loose ends, gave us a sense of satisfaction and resolution, and was in keeping with the rest of the series. Some bittersweetness counters the laughs, but at the end of the... More »

Jeon Woo-chi: Episode 23
by | February 8, 2013 | 12 Comments
I’m going to miss seeing Woo-chi perched up on rooftops, arms crossed in judgy exasperation, always ready with a snarky comeback and a cheeky punishment for the endless array of baddies in the world.

There are some big payoffs in this episode, along with a few surprises, and Woo-chi and the gang finally start to put some effort into knocking Minister Oh down from his tower of untouchable wealth and power. I have to admit; it’s pretty damn satisfying to watch him squirm. Are the good guys actually going... More »

by | January 26, 2013 | 13 Comments
Aha, just when you think things are going one way, they’re really heading another. The show pulls out a surprise to keep us—and more importantly, the characters—on our toes. It’s something I appreciate in theory, though I have to admit that sometimes I’d really rather not have all that extra angst. At least there’s a... More »

Thing vs. Thing: Comic book heroes of sageukland
by | January 20, 2013 | 87 Comments
javabeans: If American comic book-dom is perpetually confronted with the question “Who’s better, Superman or Batman?” then dramaland is equally confronted with the question… “Who’s better, Superman or Batman?” Because really, they sorta all fall into those archetypes. Just also wearing hanbok and manes o’ glory. Okay, with a fair dash of Robin Hood sprinkled... More »
