Extensions for I Miss You, School
by | January 8, 2013 | 56 Comments
Oh dramaland, you wouldn’t be you if you weren’t fickle and pulling last-minute changes left and right. We’ve got some extension news for dramas that were preempted for one reason or another, and now face ending a day short of normal broadcasting schedules. First: MBC’s Wednesday-Thursday melodrama I Miss You was originally planning to end... More »

School 2013: Episode 10
by | January 7, 2013 | 97 Comments
Major developments drive today’s episode, not in one but two broken friendships. Sacrifice is the name of the game, though thankfully not of the stupidly noble variety; it’s more like stepping up to prove how much your bromance is worth to you. For a species (the teenage male, I mean) that’s so averse to candid... More »

School 2013: Episode 9

Yes, this top shot is almost exactly like the one kicking off the previous recap. But there’s a big (and awesome) difference: This one’s not a flashback. There’s hope in sight! I mean, we all knew there must be, but now that I see the glimpses of it I’m totally psyched for them to actually... More »

Bad news for addicts: our Monday-Tuesday drama dosage will be greatly reduced next week, due to the end-of-year awards ceremonies scheduled to air in their time slots. Monday December 31 is the day for both KBS and SBS Drama Awards, and well, you can’t really air dramas while you’re trying to award dramas, can you?... More »

School may be in session even on Christmas day, but if Nam-soon isn’t present, does it really count? Our hero leaves school and his bestie behind, but you know what they say about absence and hearts… truancy makes the heart grow fonder? Everyone gets a chance to miss Nam-soon, and you’d be surprised who makes... More »

Happy holidaymas to you all! Good thing for the addicted out there that dramaland waits for nobody, not even Santa, so we’ve got a full slate of regularly scheduled programming to dive into. Although I suppose if you were hoping for any sort of rest during the holidays, it’s not such good news… This show... More »

School 2013: Episode 6

This drama breaks my heart every episode, but damn it, I always come back for more. It’s because they manage to do that that perfectly hopeful, earnest kind of heartbreak so well—especially in those small moments between characters that you might miss if you blinked. All the characters feel real and fleshed out, and their... More »

School 2013: Episode 5

This show. Aie. Just so many feels. It’s like I can hardly process it. That’s partly because of that keen insight into the sense of being young and adrift and all alone in your uncertainty that cuts just a little extra-deep for its verisimilitude. It’s also partly because of the matter-of-fact tone with which it’s... More »

School 2013: Episode 4

I’m so invested in this show. It hits all the right buttons for me—it’s earnest and heartfelt, angsty in a relatable, not overly dramatic way, and tonally darker than you’d expect for a high school drama. The storytelling holds back in a really smart way too, making us curious about each character and taking its... More »

School 2013: Episode 3

This week looks to be just as strong—or stronger—than premiere week for School 2013, which is doing some really great things with its characters. This episode sees the escalation of tensions and the entry of a new character who’s bound to shake things up a little. Or maybe a ton, given the way his arrival... More »

School 2013: Episode 2

Yaaaay, it’s so good. I love it when high school shows are done well, with substance and heart. The characters are layered, the circumstances realistic, and the story has so much potential to be interesting without the conventional drama pitfalls. And Lee Jong-seok’s angsty Go Nam-soon? Gah. I LUFF HIM SO. He tugs at my... More »
