Moon Geun-young in the stage play Closer
by | July 15, 2010 | 56 Comments
As previously noted, young actress Moon Geun-young is making her theater debut in the Korean production of Closer, the play that debuted in London in 1997. And, can I say, she looks absolutely stunning in these promotional photos. Closer was adapted into a film in 2004 starring Clive Owen, Julia Roberts, Natalie Portman, and Jude... More »

I don’t know if it’s me, but I’m just not hitting it off with finales this time around. [It is SO NOT just you. –javabeans] It’s just, when you think about it…you’ve spent sixteen, or TWENTY friggin episodes in the will-they-or-won’t-they-oh-god-they-won’t-even-get-close, and speak!-please-for-the-love-of-all-that-is-holy-speak! So it’s not asking for too much to be rewarded at the... More »

Cinderella’s Sister: Episode 19

Except for a few minutes’ worth, most of the scenes in this episode are obscured by an election ticker running across the bottom. I considered cropping it out of the frames, but that looks just as odd, so we’ll just have to put up with it. This may just be the light at the end... More »

Well look who turned the titanic around in the moments before impact. While this episode mostly has me screaming an exasperated “FINALLY!” at every turn, I can still appreciate it for being what I wanted the show to be around the midpoint. We’ve got plotting, wheeling, dealing, sharing, and hugging…but the real star of this... More »

Cinderella’s Sister: Episode 17

I think I have to start out with an apology, because I’m just so emotionally checked out of this drama that I can’t tell a good episode apart from a bad one anymore. I’ve read a lot of comments about how Episode 17 is so much better than the previous ones, which was promising to... More »

Well, if you’ve made it this far, you deserve a prize. Perhaps a bobblehead Eun-jo doll, or a Ki-hoon weeble wobble, perfect for punching. What we get in this episode, along with the last one, are finally some major revelations and confrontations, ones that we desperately needed perhaps last century, but hey—when you’re dying of...

Cinderella’s Sister: Episode 15

As I was watching Episode 15, I couldn’t help wishing this part of the plot had happened at the halfway point rather than three-quarters of the way to the end. If this shift in family dynamics had come at the midpoint, I think I would have been a lot more excited about the dramatic possibilities,... More »

Okay, I’m starting to sound like a broken record, I know. But while this episode is chock full of events, one of which, pictured above, is something we’ve been waiting seven thousand years for, none of them actually results in anything changing. At least not in the episode itself. Maybe things that happen here will... More »

Another emotion-packed episode, parts of which I loved and other parts which I did not love at all. Seems this is becoming a pattern for me with his drama — it’s like these two extremes are growing ever farther apart, so that the heart-wrenching parts of each episode are enough to bring a tear to...

Okay, I will concede that while I like Eun-jo the prickly porcupine, I love Eun-jo the gooey-marshmallow center, in a Teflon shell, wearing a porcupine suit. This week shows a marked shift in her character, and as javabeans noted, it came not a moment too soon. For me, what makes this week’s episodes a breath... More »
