This episode is all about the conflict between the vampires, the other vampires, and the humans, and our leads are swept up in the conflict either by choice or by Fate. Either way they’re trapped, and must find a way to survive regardless of social status or humanity. It could be argued that humanity has... More »

Oh, the bromance! It’s lovely to see how Jae-min and Shi-hoo grew up as friends, and what keeps them together despite their wildly different personalities and interests. It’s clear that their friendship means the world to them, and it’s a shame that the one thing they have in common, is the one thing that could... More »

Well, the cute was short-lived, as we’re thrown right into the deep end of the human-vampire conflict. Jae-min learns some terrible truths about Shi-hoo and Ma-ri, and both vampires take matters into their own hands, with varying tragic results.

Let the cute commence! Our leads stop hiding their feelings and decide honesty is the best policy, though Ma-ri’s big secret is still one she holds close to the vest. They even make new friends as the band is finally formed, which does good things for Ma-ri’s confidence and Jae-min’s maturity. He’s not ready to... More »

I’m happy to report that not only is the second episode of Orange Marmalade as good as the first, but in my opinion, it’s even better. We learn a bit more about our characters and their pasts, and discover some surprising connections. A newcomer to school shakes things up, and Jae-min will have to elevate... More »

I have a good feeling about this one, guys. Orange Marmalade’s premiere episode strikes a balance that seems note-perfect so far, setting up a world that’s sweet and normal on the surface, but conflicted and troubled underneath. This premiere is all about establishing the dramaverse and the characters, and only gives hints at what’s to... More »

The second teaser is out for KBS’s fantasy romance Oranage Marmalade, and in contrast to the first one’s pain and tears, this teaser’s full of sweet and cute. Phew! Why didn’t they lead with this one? Not that I have anything against sensitive, heartwrenching teen stories about impossible interspecies romance, but too much angsting had... More »
