Romance Town: Episode 4
by | May 24, 2011 | 92 Comments
Soon Geum finally spends her money! This drama isn’t perfect (there’s whiplash-like, choppy editing during Gun Woo’s changing scene that drives me nuts), and is full of tropes and cliches (cold chaebols, unreliable dads, etc). But it’s perfectly enjoyable, so I hope you think so too! SONG OF THE DAY Jessica – “Overflowing with Tears”... More »

This episode had me screaming for MOAARRRRR! You’d think a drama that’s all about slice of life would elicit a calmer response, but no. I’m also counting on this drama to give me another awesome bromance. SONG OF THE DAY Tei – 너뿐이야 from Romance Town OST [download]... More »

Romance Town: Episode 2

Oh. My. God. Episode 2 just gets better. Let me clarify that when I said it would be a bumpy ride, it was because I didn’t know where this drama was going. I was afraid that this drama might be directionless, shuffling back and forth between good and bad. However, I’m going to put my... More »

Romance Town: Episode 1

Hallo everyone! I have joined the brigade of “All Dramas – No Sleep” – at least, until 49 Days ends. It was hard to get excited about this drama, what with Cha Seung Won being funny on one end, and Yoon Eun Hye back where she belongs in romantic comedy. But I guess all I... More »

Aw, my interest in this drama just went up a notch. Here are some stills of upcoming upstairs-downstairs romantic comedy drama Romance Town, with leads Sung Yuri and Jung Kyeo-woon looking adorable. I know, I’m easy. Just throw some cute at me and I’m waggin’ my tail. A few of the stills finally show Sung... More »

Romance Town unveils its posters
by | April 29, 2011 | 31 Comments
Romance Town unveils its main posters, which are frothy and cute, as I hope the drama also will be. The one above is my favorite, because it conveys a vibe that’s a bit different than what we’ve come to expect of K-dramas. It’s got a bit of old-world elegance, but cheekily positions the help (namely,... More »

Sung Yuri transforms into a maid for Romance Town
by | April 8, 2011 | 31 Comments
I’m pretty sure I’ll find myself continuing to call Sung Yuri’s new drama Maids in my head, but I’ll have to get used to referring to it by its new title, the (sigh) rather lackluster Romance Town. (Some commenters suggested that perhaps the title sounds better by its Korean name, but alas, I can say... More »

Maids changes its name to…
by | April 4, 2011 | 61 Comments
Romance Town? Are you kidding me? But that’s so… lame. Last week, the drama formerly known as Maids encountered some opposition regarding its name, as it uses a word for “maids” [식모] that has in recent years been abandoned for more favorable, politically correct terminology. The production was aware of the possibility that the title... More »

Maids deliberates over name change
by | March 30, 2011 | 75 Comments
With its cast in place — Sung Yuri, Jung Kyeo-woon, Kim Min-joon, and Min Hyo-rin — and its May premiere set, KBS’s rom-com series Maids held its first script rehearsals this week. But one lingering issue remains unresolved: the title, with which producers are wrestling after receiving complaints. The problem? One national organization of housekeeping... More »

Maids adds Min Hyo-rin, Kim Min-joon
by | March 28, 2011 | 29 Comments
Two new cast members have been added to Maids: singer-turned-actress (and fashion-mag favorite) Min Hyo-rin and tough guy Kim Min-joon. My reaction to this news is twofold: Yay! and Ehhh… The rom-com vehicle from Pasta’s scriptwriter stars Sung Yuri (Swallow the Sun) as a maid working for rich chaebol families, which brings her into contact...
