…and on… and on…. SBS’s latest hit Secret Garden might just get an afterlife, although it remains to be seen whether it will be one filled with rose petals and hocus pocus, or a life of being stuck in development netherworld.

by | January 16, 2011 | 632 Comments
It’s the bow-tied, triple-knotted kind of ending for this cast of characters, as we say our final goodbyes to Secret Garden. I’d personally like to say farewell to omo-queen Secretary Kim. Thanks for the laughs. And of course to my new favorite idol-oppa, Oska. Yoon Sang-hyun, I was never on your bus before, but I’m... More »

Okay, there have been a ton of recent parodies and references to Hyun Bin‘s sparkly tracksuit in Secret Garden, but this one really takes the cake.

I’m glad this show comes with its own shrink. It should be a new requirement in all k-dramas. I mean, if you’re going to start making such sharp turns, it’s only fair that you provide your own medical care for those of us who suffer from the whiplash. I’d like to dedicate this recap to... More »

The final stretch brings us tears, tears, and more tears. Seriously, there’s a lot of crying; so much that I wonder that the actors didn’t collapse from dehydration. It also brings us decisions, some life-or-death, as well as goodbyes and angst. All with a liberal dash of Noble Idiocy. It’s Secret Garden: The Makjang Edition!... More »
