2012 Editors’ Picks [Year In Review, Part 6]
by | December 28, 2012 | 320 Comments
Annnnnnnd another year comes to a close. Big thanks to our recap minions HeadsNo2, gummimochi, and kaedejun for sharing their reviews with us and joining the spirited discussion for the Editors’ Picks this year. There wasn’t even any hair-pulling, and only one person lost an eye! It’s been a great year for K-dramas and an... More »

Dramaland: The gift that keeps on giving [Year In Review, Part 5]
by | December 24, 2012 | 141 Comments
If there’s anything that Santa has taught me over the years (other than a musical mnemonic about single-malt scotches), it’s that Christmas is a time of giving. Dramaland gives us so much throughout the year, that I thought it was finally time for me to stop being a grinch and give back, out of the... More »

If I Could Turn Back Time [Year In Review, Part 4]
by | December 21, 2012 | 155 Comments
My first year-end review! I was so excited for this opportunity that I decided to watch as many dramas as I could in preparation this year, and all but forced myself to doggedly stick with obvious train wrecks because I figured, “Hey, at least it’ll give me something to write about.” If I learned anything,...

A Variety of Flavors in 2012 [Year In Review, Part 3]
by | December 15, 2012 | 133 Comments
Looking at the buffet table of 2012, I’m left in awe at the vast array of possible selections before me. The sheer number of choices is growing every year and I feel like I have to taste-test the premiere and make a quick decision of whether to keep digging in or move on. Sometimes you... More »

2012: Something for everyone? [Year In Review, Part 1]
by | December 8, 2012 | 263 Comments
Review extravaganza time! I know: Already? It feels like just the other day I was killing myself to corral all my thoughts in coherent fashion in a monster review of 2011’s dramas, and already it’s time to lose sleep wrangling my thoughts together for 2012. Time sure flies when you’re having fun, or old. Guess... More »

Nice Guy: Episode 20 (Final)
by | November 16, 2012 | 356 Comments
And so it ends, and we have to say goodbye to the nicest guy we’ve never seen anywhere in the world – the drama world, anyway. More than just coming full circle, our characters (and especially our side characters) are able to finally move on from the shackles of their pasts in a satisfying way,... More »

Nice Guy: Episode 19
by | November 15, 2012 | 79 Comments
This certainly is an emotional powerhouse of an episode, with Maru and Jae-hee coming to some startling (and sometimes frustrating) realizations about themselves and how they relate to each other. Now that Eun-ki’s back, she’s not about to let anyone off the hook as far as her dead daddy goes, and the only thing standing... More »

Nice Guy: Episode 18
by | November 9, 2012 | 175 Comments
Hey guys, just stepping in to recap this one episode because someone is busy ogling her Oppa in person (Priorities!), and because you really needn’t ask me twice to spend a day with Joong-ki. I’m easy like that. Let the melo and mayhem begin. As finale week approaches, it’s fallout time for Maru and his... More »

Nice Guy: Episode 17
by | November 8, 2012 | 95 Comments
(I’m pinch-hitting on Nice Guy today, but fear not, we’ll resume with our regularly scheduled programming next week when HeadsNo2 comes back.) I am happy to have a chance to weigh in on the show, which I’ve been faithfully watching and finding very entertaining, despite (or maybe because of?) some crazy-up-the-wazoo character behavior. But very... More »

Extension for Oohlala Spouses, not for Nice Guy
by | November 6, 2012 | 72 Comments
Good news and not-so-good news? Monday-Tuesday’s Oohlala Spouses looks like it’s getting its extension, while Wednesday-Thursday’s Nice Guy is not. It’s no secret how we feel about extensions ’round these parts (almost universally met with dismay), so I’m not super thrilled about Oohlala getting two more episodes, although I can see how it may be...

Nice Guy: Episode 16
by | November 2, 2012 | 207 Comments
It’s time for some truth up in here, and that truth comes with its own dose of forced smiles and infinite levels of deception. Maru’s finally embracing his inner nice guy and pulls on our heartstrings while he’s at it, which somehow makes the cute moments in this episode the saddest thing ever. And then... More »
