Cantabile Tomorrow: Episode 12
by | November 18, 2014 | 70 Comments
With old problems finding resolution, we open the door for new goals and new directions, though what remains is still one of the things I like best about the show, is that the characters stick around to guide each other along. Of course, all that serious personal growth doesn’t mean we’re lacking the petty rivalries... More »

Ah, get your hearts ready for warming. It’s a great episode for friendship and growing up, and well-paced in the way it guides several of our main characters on their individual paths of growth so that they dovetail nicely. It’s a nice way to depict the interconnectedness of these lives, and how they all grow... More »

With new goals come new challenges, and it’s Nae-il’s turn to buck up and challenge herself to grow, even if the process is uncomfortable. It’s gratifying to see the effort these characters put into trying to grow despite... More »

There’s so much emotional growth and relationship movement in this episode, and it’s such a gratifying feeling to watch some of these smaller arcs arrive at their destinations. Our guy finds it lonely out there on his own, but also takes responsibility for his part and figures out how to bridge that gap. It doesn’t... More »

Cantabile Tomorrow: Episode 8

Oh, I love this episode—our hero takes one important step towards becoming a virtuoso, but more importantly, his music stirs something deep inside our heroine and the focus shifts to how he influences her. They share a connection through a language that only they understand, and we start to witness why it is that this... More »

Cantabile Tomorrow: Episode 7
by | November 3, 2014 | 88 Comments
The playing field gets a shake-up and the dynamics get turned all upside-down and around, in a fun way that makes for some significant character movement. I love to see the orchestra coming to the fore and becoming, rather than an albatross around your neck to drag you down, something shiny and exciting on its... More »

javabeans: We haven’t done a Variety Roulette in some time, but we’ve been meaning to do one for Witch Hunt for a while. We’ve been talking about it for months, it seems, but kept pushing it back because we didn’t have the time. But with Three Meals a Day getting cleared from the docket and... More »

javabeans: Let’s be shallow today, because I want to talk about hot men and I don’t know how to be meaningful about that. girlfriday: Perhaps the meaning isn’t the point! Haven’t you heard that life’s all about the journey? I can’t think of a better reason than that. It’s like they said in Cantabile Tomorrow... More »

It’s a great episode with big moments of heart from everyone — our once cold hero, our maturing heroine, and even the crazy maestro with a hidden agenda. The introduction of a new character also shakes up the story in a really fun way, by giving our hero a run for his money when it... More »

Cantabile Tomorrow: Episode 5

It’s a day of emotional conflict for our heroine, which I think comes not a moment too soon. While I’ve been able to enjoy the role of Nae-il without feeling upset about the aspects of her character that disappoint me, I can see the reasons others feel dissatisfied, so it’s a welcome move for the...

Joo-won’s ugly duckling transformation in Fashion King
by | October 24, 2014 | 54 Comments
I’m pretty sure this movie is going to be one big crock o’ crazy, but I’m planning to watch it for the visual shock alone. Will you get a load of Joo-won? It’s a little hard to adjust when I’m already so used to seeing him as a very poised classical music student in Cantabile... More »
