Ack, is it that time of year already? WHERE DID THE YEAR GO. The 50th Grand Bell Awards (aka Daejong Film Awards) were held on November 1, and kicks off the season of red-carpet awards ceremonies. There were a few big films that carried off the lion’s share of prizes, but it was a far... More »

You’re Here, You’re Here, You’re Really Here: An introduction
by | January 10, 2012 | 32 Comments
You’re Here, You’re Here, You’re Really Here is the MBN sitcom that premiered at the start of December, which touted itself as a new style of sitcom modeled after the American sitcom format, with a Friends-like vibe. Supposedly. At 120 episodes and on a daily airing schedule, it’s not a show I’d normally want to... More »

Wish Upon a Star: Episode 20 (Final)
by | March 16, 2010 | 115 Comments
Wish Upon a Star ended with a series high rating of 18.5%, which was the top rating among Tuesday dramas. To be perfectly frank, I think the last two episodes are two of the weakest, which is too bad. We do get our happy ending (not that that was ever in doubt) and a feel-good... More »

Wish Upon a Star: Episode 19

This screencap isn’t really a big spoiler, right? We ARE almost at the end, after all, and it’s not like it’s a big cliffhanger… Here we are, at the last week. Things start to wrap up with the multiple plotlines coming to a conclusion or setting up for the big finish. Ending episodes always tend... More »

Wish Upon a Star: Episode 17

I liked this episode — it was a little mellower than the previous ones. Given the prominence of Jae-young’s dramatics in those prior episodes, I consider this a good thing. (Also: hardly any Jae-young today!) As we head toward the drama’s finish, we’re dealing less with the crazy bitchy rival lady and getting back to... More »

Wish Upon a Star: Episode 16

The above isn’t a significant scene in the episode, but it’s memorable for Cho-rok’s line that comes with it: “Unni, I think I’m going to have to marry Tae-kyu oppa!” This was definitely a better episode than yesterday’s. It still had its faults, and the emotional logic can be perplexing, if not downright nonsensical. But... More »

Wish Upon a Star: Episode 15

Not the best episode; I thought it felt rather flat, particularly compared to the many adorable moments we’ve seen in recent weeks. There are a couple of reasons for this, namely: too much Jae-young, not enough kids. That, and almost everyone annoyed in this episode, except Pal-gang. (The kids don’t count, because they weren’t really... More »

Could these two be any more adorable? And to think, when the drama first aired, silly Pa-rang was my least favorite sibling. (For shame.) In keeping with this drama’s pattern, there are so many cute, funny, heartwarming moments that it’s too bad that there are other hateful characters muddying up the plot. On the other... More »

Yay, it’s back! I suppose absence does make the heart grow fonder, because a week off with no new Wish Upon a Star episodes really whetted my appetite for a new one today. Also: I’ve been meaning to mention it for a while now, but I love baby Nami. Often the baby of a drama... More »

(Awwww. And look at the little-boy slippers next to the grown-up ones!) A very good episode for Pal-gang, I thought. Is it strange to feel proud of fictional characters for making mature decisions and being levelheaded? That sounds like it ought to be boring stuff, but on the contrary, it’s really satisfying to watch her... More »

Wish Upon a Star: Episode 11

Big episode! There are big movements in most of the relationships, and we also find out what the big deal about Kang-ha’s pained past is. (And it actually makes pretty good sense.) Or at least, we find out about the childhood part of it; his past romantic issue is hinted at but not yet revealed.... More »
