Raine’s 2012 Year-End Review!

by: Raine

This year was really a wild ride. It was my second full year as a k-drama watcher and my first full year blogging. Phew. Did 2012 go by as quickly for you as it did for me?

Some of it I loved, and some of it left  me lukewarm. There were a few dramas I really wish I could obliterate from my memory. But the good ones made up for it, ’cause there were some GOOD dramas.

The reviews will be highly biased and highly noninclusive. It’s about what I remembered at the end of the year 2012. How did these shows impact me? Am I still salivating? Or did I forget it existed until I had to write this thing?

Recapping Plans

by: Raine

So it took me a while to figure out what I wanted to recap that’s currently airing. My dilemma is threefold this summer.

  1. I had surgery on my hands so recapping is just plain ol’ physically taxing.
  2. I’m going to England from June 21 to July 11. (No, I’m not recapping on vacation although you will get update posts.)
  3. I’m moving from Florida to Colorado…and I’m driving. That’s 2000 miles!

Now, recapping currently airing shows was kinda fun (and stressful) and I really want to continue. But I also have three retrocaps I’ve been working on for ages that I would really like to finish. So here’s what I’m gonna do:

  1. I’m going to cover KBS2’s Big until I leave, then catch up as I will.
  2. I’m going to work on my retrocaps and hopefully get a few set up for while I’m away. (Retrocaps are Padam Padam, How to Meet a Perfect Neighbor and White Christmas)

There you have it. Mostly this summer is as I will. Thanks for reading and supporting the Dichotomy!

Padam Padam: Episode 11 Recap

by: Raine with comments by a most awesome, albeit rabbit obsessed, MadDino

Raine: The ending of last episode left me trying not to hate Ji-na right for jumping to insane conclusions, saying that her mother died because of Kang-chil and other nasty and sundry things. But, I can’t help this hate that wells within me for wimpy, wilty, woe-is-me women. Does she get off of Raine’s hit list by the end of this episode? Read on and find out…

Deeno: You have a hit list? Who else is on it?

Padam Padam: Episode 8 Recap Link

by: Raine

Here is is folks. The epic collaboration of the decade: MadDino and Raine!

MadDino/Deeno hails from MadDino Asylum where a bunch of crazy drama addicts are locked up screaming – screaming for MOAR DRAMAS.

Because she’s insane, she has agreed that we shall take turns hosting the recap and writing the bulk of the content. However, inside each recap you will find delightful running commentary and, perhaps, if you’re lucky, an occasional clash of opinion.

Up next is Deeno with the recap of Padam Padam: Episode 8
