The DramaMeter: highly scientific and foolproof [Year in Review, Part 4]
by | December 21, 2011 | 181 Comments
  Wow, another year of dramas, come and gone. Where does the sanity go? I decided that for this year’s review, I would learn to be impartial and precise, and give systematic mathematical ratings for every show. Because numbers are fun. But then, I found that trying to rate a year’s worth of dramas was... More »

Thousand Day Promise: Episode 20 (Final)

Blarg$@*&#()$%_)^#*%. I’m pretty sure this finale broke me. I mean, I knew going in what kind of show it was, but there’s a difference between having the detached knowledge that you’ll cry and actually sobbing out a river of tears. The show bowed out at a series high (19.8%) after flagging a bit in recent... More »

What do you mean you didn’t want your heart broken into a million pieces? There’s no backing out now, not this close to the end. As we prepare for the finale, the worst of it hits like a ton of bricks, with no mercy for Seo-yeon or for the people who love her. We’ve been... More »

Thousand Day Promise: Episode 18

There are several celebrations in this episode, and yet they feel like mournful last goodbyes as Seo-yeon comes a few steps closer to motherhood, and also retreats a few steps further into her mind. There’s an approaching feeling of finality to come, in the mood and the interactions between Seo-yeon and her family. *whimper* Hold... 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 »

Thousand Day Promise: Episode 17

Just when you think you’re all out of tears… Today’s episode is all about motherhood – the mother that Seo-yeon is to her brother, the mother who abandoned them, the mother who stepped in to take care of them, and the mother that she wants to be.

Thousand Day Promise: Episode 16
by | December 6, 2011 | 48 Comments
Oof. Hold on to your hats, folks, this one’s a doozy. But a good kind of doozy, especially for a show where not a lot changes from episode to episode, since we’re focusing more on the little changes from day to day and the characters’ reactions to the illness, which is taking up a larger...

Thousand Day Promise: Episode 15
by | December 5, 2011 | 58 Comments
A mostly contemplative episode, as the dust settles in each household. A cameo from another member of the Kim Soo-hyun family brings Song Chang-eui by, and it looks like he’ll stick around for a little while, which is awesome considering he’s pretty much the funniest thing about this episode. I can’t say anything good about... More »
