Glossary: Jondaemal
by | July 12, 2010 | 82 Comments
You can learn a lot about Soulmate’s main cast from the way they chose to address one another Next in the Dramabeans Glossary series is jondaemal, which can be described as “polite speech” or “formal speech.” (Jondae means “honorific,” while mal is the suffix for “speech.”) Just as oppa and noona are two terms that...

All Told, A Pretty Fun Year [Year In Review, Part 4]
by | December 29, 2009 | 142 Comments
After a pretty meh 2008, I was ready for the drama landscape to fire back up with 2009. And while there were a number of misses and disappointments — isn’t there always? — I was pretty satisfied with the dramas I watched in 2009. I still don’t think there were as many top offerings as,... More »

A Newbie Reviews 2009 [Year In Review, Part 3]
by | December 29, 2009 | 155 Comments
My pick for Drama of the Year: City Hall. I’ll start of with an admission.  When javabeans asked me to give my thoughts on 2009, I was pretty excited, and agreed without much thought.  After all, 2009 was the best year of k-drama watching I’ve ever had.  But then it hit me: 2009 was also the...

How was 2009 for you?
by | December 6, 2009 | 410 Comments
With the year coming to an end, that means it’s time to take stock of the past twelve months (well, eleven really) in kdramas. The broadcast stations will be holding their awards ceremonies at the end of the month, and I’m working on my wrap-up of 2009′s offerings — as are some very talented (and... More »

Drama theme-song ringtones
by | November 22, 2009 | 161 Comments
Somehow the mention of ringtones came up on the last Open Thread, and I posted some ringtones that I’d made of You’re Beautiful OST songs. I got some requests, so I thought I’d put more up in a separate post, in case anyone else was interested. (These are short mp3 clips that you can download... More »

My Fair Lady: Episode 16 (Final)
by | October 8, 2009 | 257 Comments
Oh my gosh, this was one of the worst finales I’ve ever seen. I’ve been leaving room for the drama to upswing at the eleventh hour, but now that it’s over I can say with certainty that this is a gross disappointment. I can’t say it’s the worst last episode EVER (because there are many... More »

My Fair Lady: Episode 15
by | October 7, 2009 | 81 Comments
I know, at this point it’s probably more “appropriate” to post a pic of our main couple… but eh, whatever. This one is very cute. Episode 15 makes me sorry for all of us who were holding out hope for an exciting ending, because this episode was rather boring. Things that should have been heart-tugging... More »

My Fair Lady: Episode 14
by | October 1, 2009 | 91 Comments
Like the past three (or so) episodes, I think Episode 14 is rife with weird, illogical moments. But unlike the past three episodes, at least this one has a couple of nice, conflict-ridden scenes to make up for it. No, it doesn’t make up for all of the shortcomings, but there were a couple bits... More »

My Fair Lady: Episode 13
by | September 30, 2009 | 65 Comments
I wish My Fair Lady would go full-on crazy, because even though they’re halfway there already, the drama’s still clinging to the semblance of a conventional trendy series. I think at this point they’d do better to have fun running wild with the nonsense rather than struggling to play it straight. I didn’t think this... More »

Who’s to blame for confusing characters?
by | September 28, 2009 | 86 Comments
There have been several discussions on this site about this topic, so I found the following article pretty timely. I both agree and disagree with the points outlined below, but regardless of my personal take on the matter, I’m certain there is enough room for convincing arguments on both sides of the issue… “Who’s to...

My Fair Lady: Episode 12
by | September 24, 2009 | 96 Comments
Was it just me, or were the last ten minutes of this episode the weirdest, choppiest, awkwardest sequence of scenes ever? They came across tacked-on and badly edited. Totally felt out of step with the rest of the episode, which marred an otherwise significant ending scene. SONG OF THE DAY Lee Soo-young – “추억 안녕”... More »
