The Year in Review, Part 4: The Rest of 2007
by | December 29, 2007 | 54 Comments
Yes, my last post was “The Best of 2007,” but rather than put up a Worst list, I’m lumping them all together with The Rest. Not all the dramas I’m mentioning here are bad; they’re just dramas I watched that didn’t belong in the Best list. SONG OF THE DAY War of Money OST –... More »

Behind the K-Drama Scenes

So I was thinking about the ending of Witch Amusement, and of how much more I enjoyed the director’s prior two series, 2005’s Delightful Girl Choon Hyang and 2006’s My Girl. And since both of those were written by the Hong sisters screenwriting team, Hong Jung Eun and Hong Mi Ran, I naturally thought to... More »

Witch Amusement: Episode 16 (Final)

Ahh, Witch Amusement. How you’ve amused me so. Despite your repeated shenanigans (or maybe because of them), I’ve enjoyed watching you, all 16 episodes. You gave me so much to laugh about (and more to laugh AT, but who’s differentiating? Po-tay-to, po-tah-to.). And now, we say adieu. (Random) SONG OF THE DAY K.Will – “You”... More »

Witch Amusement: Episode 15

I was mildly concerned that in its last week, Witch Amusement would for no reason regain its sanity and fall into a sudden abyss of logical, comprehensible blandness. Having seen Episode 15, I laugh at my naivete. I worried for nothing. All is well in the land of entertaining crazy. I loved this insane, silly... More »

Witch Amusement: Episode 14

It’s official. Witch Amusement has lost its mind. The good news: at least the crazy is the entertaining kind. I think I’ve figured out what must’ve happened: some nutjob anti-fan of Han Ga In / Dennis Oh / Bin / Kim Jung Hoon sneaked on set, dropped a bunch of crazy pills into the punch... More »

Witch Amusement: Episode 13
by | May 4, 2007 | 47 Comments
This episode was both fun and all sorts of ridiculous. It was also genuinely and unintentionally funny. And ridiculous. On the distinctive plus-side, Jae Hee and Dennis Oh both looked particularly hot, to be shamefully superficial for a moment. You’ve gotta hand it to these producers — they know their audience. On the down-side, the... More »

Ah, my Witch Amusement is back on track! (Ish.) Granted, by now I know the show isn’t what I’d hoped it would be, but this was a much more enjoyable episode than some recent ones have been. If only they could have compressed the last six episodes into two.... More »

This series really is better the less you scrutinize closely. I suppose not all shows require deep analysis, which is fine once you’re able to let go of the tendency to look further than necessary. Which, as you can guess, is not my first impulse. (Random) SONG OF THE DAY Beige – “세상이 둥글지 않다면”... More »

(Random) SONG OF THE DAY Kara – “Don’t Be Shy” aka “the new FinKL.” I’m not being glib; they were really called FinKL 2 before someone wisely came to their senses and assigned them a new moniker. [ zShare download ]... More »
