Finding Merit in the Mediocre [Year in Review, Part 4]
by | December 31, 2008 | 75 Comments
2007 was a rich year for drama-land. There was something for everyone, whether your tastes ran toward dark thrillers (Devil), intense dramas (White Tower), heart-warmers (Thank You), off-the-wall eccentrics (Mixed-up Investigative Agency), trendy fare (Coffee Prince), romantic comedies (Dal Ja’s Spring), and so on. 2008, on the other hand… not so much. Every drama has... More »

Love & Marriage: Episode 16 (Final)
by | October 22, 2008 | 67 Comments
I knew Love & Marriage would end on a happy note, and that nothing totally unexpected would come in the last hour. But I was still pleasantly surprised with how well the drama wrapped up its romance — even managing to pull out a bit of cleverness to keep the inevitable from being totally predictable.... More »

Love & Marriage: Episode 15

Love & Marriage reminds me of the exchange in Clueless — Cher: “He said you gave him a toothache.” Tai: “How’d I do that?” Cher: “It’s an expression. It means he thought you were sweet.” If this drama were a type of candy, all my teeth would have fallen out by now. SONG OF THE... More »

Love & Marriage: Episode 14
by | October 14, 2008 | 35 Comments
This episode probably shouldn’t be taken with too much seriousness, because it felt like everyone regressed for a moment into adolescence and acted like a bunch of kids. It almost seemed like the actors were having a bit of fun — and while it wasn’t, uh, realistic, it was cute how they joked and played... More »

Love & Marriage: Episode 13

LOL, and I mean that literally: this was a laugh-out-loud episode, with a number of unexpectedly quirky-funny moments. A lot happened to move our stories along and close a few loops. I know that Conflict is at the heart of Drama, but I always cringe when my characters go through hell even though I know... More »

Love & Marriage: Episode 12

(Don’t worry, it’s a faux-swoon.) This was an interesting episode in that the tone was different, and the pacing too — and we finally got to see Hyun-soo sweat a little. It may seem mean to cheer at that, but: YAY! SONG OF THE DAY EZ Hyoung – “유성” (shooting star) [ Download ] Tags:... More »

Sorry for the (relative) lateness of the recap! I’ve had, shall we say, a busy week. :/ SONG OF THE DAY Lim Jeong-hee – “사랑의 반대말” (The opposite of love) [ Download ] Tags: Kim Ji-hoon, Kim Min-hee, Love & Marriage... More »

Love & Marriage: Episode 10

I’m actually liking the side characters more as we progress… Don’t get me wrong, the main relationship is the whole point of this drama, but I’m warming up to Kyung-hwan, and even — surprisingly — Kang-hyun’s mother. Maybe I just like immature characters? SONG OF THE DAY Kim Yeon-woo – “이미 넌 고마운 사람” (Already... More »

It seems we suddenly have a ton of new dramas out, and I was starting to feel a bit lost. So here’s a brief overview of the dramas currently airing, some of which I’m following regularly and some that I haven’t committed to sticking with yet. For the series I plan to keep watching, I’ll... More »

Love & Marriage: Episode 9

There’s usually one noteworthy episode that marks the turning point in a drama, and for Love & Marriage, this was it. Squeeeee! There’s a difference between an “OMG, romantic, sweet, kissy ooh!” squee, and an “Aww, yeah, The Drama has kicked in” squee. For the first eight episodes, it’s been the former: a light, fluffy...
