I had high hopes (but very little information) about Modern Farmer all the way up to the pilot episode, and I’m happy to say that it fulfills all of my expectations so far. The story is simple but ripe for wacky hijinks, the characters are interesting and nicely... More »

by | September 23, 2014 | 45 Comments
Even with its not-quite-sensical premise, SBS weekend miniseries Modern Farmer continues to make me chuckle with its teasers and posters. The comedy is inexplicably about a rock band becoming farmers, by which I mean, we’re not really told why on earth these boys are forced from idol band stardom in the big city to tending... More »

I’d heard mention of Answer Me 1994 bringing in cameo appearances from one or two members of last year’s Answer Me 1997, but hadn’t expect a whole cast drop-in, which is what we’ll be getting in the upcoming episodes. Fun! In the preview for Episode 16 (below), we get a glimpse of Jung Eun-ji and... More »

Fallout time. Now that everyone knows everything (thanks Truth Chair), it’s time to face the music. The love triangle finally comes to a head in this episode, and though it’s not my favorite plot thread, this show does what it does so well. It subverts expectation and stabs me in the heart, over what else,... More »

I was sad about leaving the ’90s behind, but thankfully all it takes is one long-overdue encounter to bring every tumultuous teenage emotion back to the surface, rendering the six years spent growing up and growing apart… totally moot. It’s the pair of episodes where our characters find that they might not be as grown... More »
