Birth of a Beauty: Episodes 1-2
by | November 4, 2014 | 89 Comments
SBS is taking a lighter, funnier approach to its weekend programs right now, with the newly premiered rom-com Birth of a Beauty joining the ridiculously goofball Modern Farmer on Saturdays and Sundays.

It’s not a revenge drama per se (in that I don’t expect the whole show to follow the heroine’s vengeance path), but that’ll provide us with... More »

It seems a number of upcoming weekend dramas are basing their plots on box office successes. We just heard about MBC’s new drama, Legendary Witch, the plot of which sounds suspiciously like Gift of Room 7, albeit with a female cast. Now we’ve got SBS joining in on the action with Birth of a Beauty... More »

Sly and Single Again: Episode 16 (Final)
by | April 27, 2014 | 89 Comments
We’ve finally reached the end! As the first drama I’ve recapped for Dramabeans, Sly will always have a special place in my heart. I think of it like my child, in that I despaired whenever I saw it heading down the wrong path, yet I defended it rabidly against its detractors and always tried to... More »

Jung-woo continues to pull out all the stops to convince Ae-ra how much he likes her, and there’s a good chance that all his cute (and adorably clumsy!) attempts at affection might actually be working. Even so, Ae-ra continues to rebuff him — but not as much as she rebuffs poor Seung-hyun, who seems to... More »
