Moon Chae-won promises more smiles in My Fair Lady
by | August 26, 2009 | 27 Comments
I know it seems like most of the attention for My Fair Lady is squarely focused on the three main leads, leaving out fourth wheel Moon Chae-won, but she’s not really being overlooked in the greater scheme of things. (I do think her presence in the story is markedly less important than the other three,... More »

Dahee Fanel’s 2008 Review [Year in Review, Part 3]
by | December 30, 2008 | 60 Comments
The K-drama world rolled into 2008 still riding the high that was 2007, a year in which a startling number of quality dramas were made, and enjoyed. Maybe it rolled in too fast. It ended up getting smothered by the waves of its previous success. In fact, you could say that it even got hit... More »

A Grump Reviews 2008 [Year in Review, Part 2]
by | December 29, 2008 | 91 Comments
How should one convey bad news in writing? By creating a buffer first. Avoid traumatizing your audience with the bad news all at once, but instead cushion the blow so that you can maintain goodwill. That textbook approach (business communication, by the way) would be dandy if the crop of 2008 dramas I watched was... More »

Painter of the Wind: Episode 7
by | November 14, 2008 | 43 Comments
Eek! I am so, so behind. *facepalm* I actually considered mushing some of the episodes together into one giant recap, just so I could catch up, but then realized that this drama has waaaaay too many important details to leave out. Also, I don’t know when to shut up. But y’all probably already know that... More »

Painter of the Wind: Episode 6
by | October 29, 2008 | 23 Comments
First of all, I’d like to apologize for the lateness of these recaps. Things are rather busy with school at the moment, and unfortunately, my education comes first. (Trust me, though, I would much rather be writing these recaps than writing a paper on Thomas King. My heart is with youuuuu!) Anyway. This episode was:... More »

Painter of the Wind: Episode 5

This episode had some aggravating scenes, which made me a little grumpy. But it also had some really beautiful scenes (GAYNESS!), and that pretty much balanced everything out. I will note, however, that I’m still waiting for a really stand-out episode from Painter, quality-wise. But good things come to those who wait, I suppose? SONG... More »

Painter of the Wind: Episode 4

Ha! Park Shin Yang in drag. That image has been BURNED onto my BRAIN. I guess that shows you just how much more lighthearted this episode was over, say, episode three, which was Angstfest to the Max. What I appreciate about Painter is that, although it can try a little too hard to be humourous... More »
