The Musical: Episode 15 (Final)
by | December 30, 2011 | 104 Comments
Wow. I thought I was disappointed with the ending in I Am Legend. This ending tops that on my “disappointment list.” The Musical started out so strongly, and was interesting for the first half. But it flagged, and it was evident in the writing, the editing, and even the acting. I think Park Ki Woong... More »

Santa Strikes Back! [Year In Review, Part 6]

What the ever-lovin’ reindeer feculence? I get home from my overnight trans-earthian sleigh odyssey, settle back with my hard-earned fifths of whiskey to read up on what I’ve missed in dramaland, and find that they’ve finished the year-end reviews without me? This is an outrage! I know who’s getting their presents revoked this year! Goddamn... More »

Well now, looks like this is going to be the second to the last episode for The Musical. Word has it that the series may end at 15 due to the poor ratings. Honestly, I can’t be that surprised – it’s at a terrible broadcast hour, and the story has been flagging in the past... More »

Not quite the “solid episode” I was looking for, but we finally did move forward with Eun Bi and Jae Hee. I started off thinking this episode (and the rest of the series) was going to be about Yoo Jin because they focused on him and his family so much. So thank goodness we turned... More »

The Good, The Bad, and The Hmmm… of 2011 [Year in Review, Part 2]

  First off, I have to deeply thank – and bow to – Javabeans and Girlfriday – it’s an honor to be included with the most respected K-drama writers for this year. Compared to these fine people, I am an utter noob. Speaking of being such a noob, I shall now complain: It’s so hard to... More »

The Musical: Episode 12

We’re back! Again. One of the benefits of having a hiatus is that the first ten minutes of the episode is spent on recapping the past 11 episodes. (Less for me to write!) One of the downsides of having a hiatus is that you really need those first ten minutes of recap. (Grr.) However, some... More »

We’re back in business! Episode 11 aired last week, but heads up if episode 12 does not air this coming Friday. I heard that it might delay again thanks to a sports game… Anyways – for episode 11 we have angst! And a totally new girl who’s pretty awesome too for Jae Hee. It’s not... More »

ZOMG! You know what the biggest bombshell of this episode was?! JAE HEE HAS A SISTER. Uh-huh. You read that right. A sister. Who holds the purse strings. And has the bank manager wrapped around her pinky. Yup. Let the showdown begin. I can’t wait for a smackdown in the likes of Tsubaki versus Tsukasa in... More »

Isn’t Joon Hyuk cute when he’s so happy? But this episode was all about Eun Bi. While it was great, what annoyed me the most was how self-sacrificing she is. I wish she could have stood her ground and trusted the people around her a little more. I wish that she didn’t worry so much... More »

The Musical: Episode 8

We’re halfway through the series! And the plot is pushing along because it’s a showdown between the scrappy Chungdamdong Gumiho versus the well-funded Count Monte. Most importantly, Goo Hye Sun has finally given me a reason to cheer for her just a bit as the main character and one-half of the drama’s main coupling.... More »
