A particular thank-you goes out to GF herself for being so game to jump into this whole world of crazy with me, and I think you’ll... More »

Objects in mirror are closer than they appear [Year In Review, Part 4]
by | December 25, 2010 | 155 Comments
I have to say, 2010 was a downright awesome year. It was the year of bromance, the year that Santa came in August, the year when guys had perms and noonas ruled, the year of the sparkly tracksuit and hoi-hoi, the year that makgulli made a comeback. But most importantly for me, it was the... More »

A year of surprises and disappointments [Year In Review, Part 1]
by | December 22, 2010 | 186 Comments
It’s that time of year again, when we look back and size up the past twelve months of dramas. This is my fourth year (this is my fourth year?!) doing this, and it’s always one of my favorite posts to write, because while I love to analyze and parse dramas to within an inch of... More »

As in previous years, I am planning a multi-part series (with special guest bloggers, natch!) to wrap up the year, which we’re... More »

Topics will range from cultural bits of Koreanness, to drama tropes, folktales, to things we simply find amusing or interesting, in tv/film/music.... More »

Personal Taste: Episode 16 (Final)
by | May 24, 2010 | 224 Comments
Dear Show, I really, really wanted to love this finale. So much. But sadly, you ended up being all foreplay, no finish. It was sweet, and fun while it lasted, but I’m not going to call you in the morning. I want to say “It’s not you, it’s me”…but I can’t. ‘Cause it was you.... More »

Personal Taste: Episode 15
by | May 20, 2010 | 91 Comments
You know how there are a zillion and one romantic comedies out there, and some of the better offerings have started to get pretty creative with the meet-cute scenarios? The old standbys have gotten stale (for example, a pratfall lands one directly into the arms of the other, or a man and a woman crash... More »

Personal Taste: Episode 14

This episode entitled “Taming My Woman”…Oh No You Di’n't, Show. I almost turned you off after the title sequence. But given that this is a topic of discussion and debate between the characters rather than a straight-up account of events, I won’t launch into a diatribe. Unless provoked. All of our roads converge in this... More »

Personal Taste: Episode 13

SO MANY cute couple scenes in this episode! We’re definitely in the calm before the storm, so again I’m gonna gloat to girlfriday about getting the floofy, candy-sweet episode. Then again, maybe she’s not so jealous since, other than the coupley goodness, the plot was a little slow. (But who cares when you have adoring... More »
