Glossary: Oppa
by | June 26, 2010 | 168 Comments
Was there ever such heartbreaking confusion over the meaning of the word “oppa” as with these two in Triple? Perhaps you’ve seen that Glossary link in the menu to the left, languishing in neglect with nary an update. I decided, what better way to update than to expound upon those familiar kdrama terms and concepts... More »

All Told, A Pretty Fun Year [Year In Review, Part 4]
by | December 29, 2009 | 142 Comments
After a pretty meh 2008, I was ready for the drama landscape to fire back up with 2009. And while there were a number of misses and disappointments — isn’t there always? — I was pretty satisfied with the dramas I watched in 2009. I still don’t think there were as many top offerings as,... More »

Triple: Episode 16 (Final)

Done! Finally! I’m pretty conflicted about Triple‘s end — part of that has to do with the plot, but it’s more to do with the drama as a whole. More on that below. SONG OF THE DAY Triple OST – “짙은 바람” by Sub [ Download ] Tags: Kim Hee, Lee Hana, Lee Jung-jae, Lee... More »

Triple: Episode 15
by | December 24, 2009 | 18 Comments
I admit I approached Triple recaps with a bit of a “Let’s get this over with, sigh” attitude, but rewatching this episode reminded me of all the little touches that I enjoyed about it. I’ve been meaning to finish off this drama for ages, and never entertained the idea of dropping it. (Whereas, in contrast,... More »

How was 2009 for you?

With the year coming to an end, that means it’s time to take stock of the past twelve months (well, eleven really) in kdramas. The broadcast stations will be holding their awards ceremonies at the end of the month, and I’m working on my wrap-up of 2009′s offerings — as are some very talented (and... More »

Sports dramas struggle to stay in the game
by | September 16, 2009 | 35 Comments
Heading to the Ground; Dream 2009 was supposed to be the year of the sports drama revival, and it has had its share of sports-themed series, with at least another still to come. Unfortunately, they’ve all tanked. The two currently struggling on the air are SBS’s fighting drama Dream, which has settled around the 4%... More »

Triple: Episode 14
by | September 8, 2009 | 25 Comments
Two more episodes left… It’s almost odd how Triple is nearing its end but doesn’t feel like it’s winding down. Perhaps that’s because it’s already so meandering to begin with, and I don’t mean that as an insult. It’s that this drama is SO slice-of-life that you almost don’t see an end in sight, because...

Triple: Episode 13
by | August 26, 2009 | 27 Comments
Only three more episodes to go… I was watching this episode, again really pleased with the visual palette, the acting of Lee Jung-jae and his interactions with Min Hyo-rin, the cute and resilient Poong-ho, and the lovely music. And those attributes just irritated me even more with the story, because Triple really, really deserved a... More »

Triple: Episode 12
by | August 11, 2009 | 26 Comments
It’s funny how I’ve actually enjoyed watching the individual episodes of Triple — and found myself smiling through a few scenes in this one, for example — but in the larger context, it all kind of blurs together. How can something be pleasant and yet also dull? Or be refreshing and yet fail to make... More »

Triple: Episode 11
by | July 29, 2009 | 38 Comments
Triple is ending this week, and while I’ve enjoyed watching it, I’m finding that I’m in no rush to finish it. I think it’s because it feels like this series has been treading water for a while now. Yes, I understand that it’s a less-plot-driven, more slice-of-life sort of drama, but slice-of-life dramas still have... More »

Triple: Episode 10
by | July 23, 2009 | 60 Comments
There’s an odd quality about Triple for me, because as I’m watching (and writing about) the episodes, I enjoy them and the way certain relationships are being expressed. However, on the whole, I feel like the drama is losing some steam, and I’m not sure why that is. I wonder if it’s because despite the... More »
