Another year has come and gone, and while I am more than happy to put 2016 behind us and look forward to greener pastures in 2017 (they’ll be greener, won’t they?), we can’t say goodbye to the year without looking back at the best of it (and the worst, in some cases) and giving the... More »

Team Dramabeans: What we’re watching
by | September 11, 2016 | 342 Comments
How did everyone’s dramas stack up this week? Any big duds to avoid, or hidden gems you’ve unearthed on dusty old hard drives that you care to share? The constant turnover in dramaland is so relentless that I can’t remember the last time I went back and watched something old, but I’m about to have... More »

Team Dramabeans, reporting for check-in! We’ve cleared a few shows from the slate and welcomed new ones (with several more on the horizon), so it feels like we’re starting a new season, which feels appropriate to the back-to-school season we’re in now (at least here in the States). Are you ready to jump on the... More »

The Good Wife: Episode 16 (Final)

The Good Wife pulled in its highest rating yet (6.2%) for the finale, breaking its heretofore usual “Saturday night slump.” Perhaps everyone wanted to make sure they had the chance to watch Hye-kyung in the courtroom one last time as she goes up against her husband to defend the man (and law firm) that have...

“Once a cheater, always a cheater.” So says David Lee, the divorce expert, and if you think Hye-kyung being forced to face her past mistakes is reserved strictly for her choice in men, well, you’d be wrong. But it also gives us a chance to see how far she’s come since the beginning, both professionally... More »

New shows! I love it when a brand new crop of shows changes the way your week goes, because all of a sudden your Mondays could seem a little brighter, simply because of a cheeky crown prince and his crossdressing eunuch. I enjoy discovering a new show so much that I’m almost never sad about... More »

Reputations are everything. They can make or break a career; build up or tear down relationships; spur a nation to love you or scorn you. Hye-kyung’s image of integrity and loyalty has been the saving grace for her husband, her children, and her career. But reputations do not necessarily represent who we truly are inside,... More »

The Good Wife: Episode 13

Riddle me this: if someone is murdered in the woods, but there’s no body, witnesses, or evidence, is it still murder? That’s what Hye-kyung has to figure out as she goes head-to-head against a familiar face. In other news, Tae-joon continues to prove that he’s an unredeemable bastard (no surprise there), and a welcome cameo... More »
