Alone in Love writer returns with Wild Romance
by | October 29, 2011 | 40 Comments
Ooh, I love this writer: Park Yeon-seon wrote a couple of stand-out dramas — the much-praised Alone In Love and the underappreciated gem Mixed-up Investigate Agency — and is coming back for another one, titled Wild Romance (where the “wild” connotes aggressive and physical). She pairs with Women In the Sun PD Bae Kyung-soo, but... More »

The Year in Review, Part 1: The Best of 2007
by | December 26, 2007 | 58 Comments
A month ago, I asked y’all, How was 2007 for you? I was thinking of the year-end wrap-up I would be writing, and wanted to see how you thought the dramas were this past year. I’ll be rolling out my year-in-review posts over the next few days (because one post just isn’t enough!). I also... More »

Mixed-up Investigative Agency: Case 16 (Final)
by | December 6, 2007 | 35 Comments
Last episode is here! To be honest, I kinda dragged my feet on this one, not just because episode recaps take much more time than anything else, but because I didn’t want to face the blankness of having nothing to watch for the immediate future (and don’tcha know, avoidance always solves problems!). Plus, I feel... More »

Mixed-up Investigative Agency: Case 15
by | November 29, 2007 | 12 Comments
What an excellent episode. By far the best to date. Episode 15 had everything — adventure, mystery, suspense, emotion, depth, and yet another well-done cliffhanger ending. In fact, it rather felt like a mini-movie more than an episode of television because of the way it skillfully brought the tension to a head; and yet, there... More »

Mixed-up Investigative Agency: Case 14
by | November 27, 2007 | 20 Comments
Seriously, just when I think there isn’t room for any more twists, Mixed-up Investigative Agency throws another one in. I’ve never seen such a tightly plotted series before, not even Veronica Mars. Here, it seems like not only are many clues peppered throughout all the episodes from the beginning, not one clue is wasted. SONG... More »

Mixed-up Investigative Agency: Case 13
by | November 26, 2007 | 12 Comments
(Another) one of the things I like about Mixed-up Investigative Agency is that the band of treasure-hunting misfit friends has some good ideas, but so often, they’re just plain WRONG. One tricky thing in making a mystery come alive is in making each step believable and yet keep the viewers guessing. The difficulty, many times,... More »

Mixed-up Investigative Agency: Case 12
by | November 24, 2007 | 14 Comments
Two things have occurred to me while watching Mixed-up Investigative Agency, ideas that solidified in Episode 12. I’ll get to the second item later in the recap, but first is that nobody’s really a bad guy. Certainly, you have people who do more good than bad, and others who do more bad than good, but... More »

Mixed-up Investigative Agency: Case 11
by | November 21, 2007 | 4 Comments
One thing I find striking about Mixed-up Investigative Agency is how it’s able to convey such emotional intensity in its expressions of love — but not heart-fluttery romance, or in-the-moment passion. Rather, the deep-seated, time-worn bond between long-bygone (but no-less-remembered) loved ones and their survivors. The person may be gone but the memory of their... More »
