Santa Strikes Back! [Year In Review, Part 6]
by | December 25, 2011 | 101 Comments
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 »

Somewhere Over the K-Drama Rainbow [Year in Review, Part 3]
by | December 18, 2011 | 220 Comments
The other day, I sat down and thought long and hard about all of the various dramas that I’ve seen over the course of my life. I remembered secretly turning on the T.V. as a small child and pressing my nose against the glass, fascinated with the powerful, forbidden emotions at play somewhere inside that... More »

by | December 13, 2011 | 202 Comments
Time for another Year In Review series! How did a year pass by so quickly? I guess when you’re busy watching dramas, time flies. This is my fifth year (eek) doing this series, which means you basically know the drill by now. (You can refer to the year-ender tag to catch up on past posts.)... More »

The Princess’s Man: Series review
by | November 24, 2011 | 229 Comments
Epic, moving, suspenseful, and superbly paced. If I were limited to only a handful of words, that’s how I’d describe The Princess’s Man, KBS’s romantic melodrama and premium sageuk from earlier this summer. Then again, I’ve never been good with brevity and I do have an open-ended word count available, so let’s cut to the... More »

by | October 5, 2011 | 79 Comments
Aw, I really love that Park Shi-hoo has taken to creating his own tradition — he’ll be watching the finale of his current drama, The Princess’s Man, along with a group of his fans. Other stars have done it before him, but he’s really the only one to turn it into his trademark. He did... More »

Protect the Boss ends, Princess’s Man remains top ratings dog
by | September 29, 2011 | 97 Comments
Protect the Boss ended its run with Thursday’s finale episode, paving the way for a new Wednesday-Thursday ratings battle once the new crop moves in. The drama ended on a rather middling ratings note (14.2%, several points down from its earlier high) and from all reports, it seems that its two-episode extension sort of killed... More »

Romantic sageuk The Princess’s Man will be offering up a change of pace for Wednesdays and Thursdays when it takes over the slot vacated by the just-ended Romance Town this week. While that drama was lighter-spirited, this one will dial up the tragic romance and melodrama with its Romeo & Juliet premise. (The story: Two... More »
