Santa presents: Things I Learned from Dramaland
by | December 25, 2013 | 90 Comments
The one good thing about working one day a year and outsourcing most of your menial labor to elves is that it gives you plenty of time to watch dramas. This year I discovered that I had watched them all wrong before, because when you watch with an open mind, you can gain valuable life... More »

Here are your winners for 2013! It was an interesting year in dramaland, with a wide array of genres to choose from all year long.

by | December 20, 2013 | 132 Comments
It’s that time of year, for Show to trade in all its good deeds and gold stars for a spot on Santa’s list. Have you been naughty, nice, or something in between? If there’s any constant in dramaland, it’s that you can never underestimate the sneak-attack of a naughty finale, or the surprise resilience of... More »

I Watched for You [Year In Review, Part 2]
by | December 13, 2013 | 214 Comments
Given the sheer volume of shows that dramaland puts out every year, I can think of plenty of reasons as to why I dropped a title or two from my watching list in 2013. And yet, I also realized that there almost always happened to be something or someone behind why I watch the ones... More »

Cheers to Dramaland 2013 [Year In Review, Part 1]
by | December 9, 2013 | 342 Comments
Another year has flown by, and it’s time to look back, reminisce, and assess how 2013 treated us in dramaland. And in taking a trip down memory lane (sure it’s a short lane, but so’s the memory), it strikes me that 2013 was pretty good in churning out a steady diet of watchable dramas, but... More »

Two Weeks: Episode 16 (Final)
by | September 26, 2013 | 189 Comments
I can’t tell if it it’s felt like two weeks, eight weeks, or eight years that we’ve been waiting for D-Day, but it’s finally here. Now all I need is for the hero to save the day, put all the baddies away, save his daughter, not die (ya hear), oh and get the girl. That’s... More »

It’s D-1, and you know what that means: things are going to get worse before they get better. Still, in the scheme of the last two weeks, you could call it a good day for our hero, who finally turns the tables on the baddies by fanning the flames of betrayal. Turns out when you’re... More »

We’re at D-minus-3, and it’s time for everyone to put in their last desperate bids for success. Tae-san escapes one trap and sets a few of his own, and with one week left I’m extra-eager to see how those play out, especially since there isn’t much time left for a whole lotta back-and-forthing. This is... More »

by | September 18, 2013 | 97 Comments
We’re winding down to D-Day and everyone’s upping their game, drawing connections, and playing some classic cat and mouse. Granted our heroes appear to be the mice in this scenario and I’d never bet against a cat (evil geniuses, all), but for now all mice are still alive and accounted for. That’s kind of a... More »
