Sungkyunkwan Scandal: Episode 2 Recap

by: Raine

Raine: Hello world, we are back after FOREVER! Since we live on opposite ends of the world, schedules are just a TEENY bit difficult to coordinate, but we have finally managed it! So Akiko from An Entertaining Cup of Morning Coffee and I are back with another recap. We really like recapping a show we’ve already seen. It’s very different from recapping live and fun to pick apart with prior knowledge of the plot.

Akiko: Yup, here we are, back with another episode recap of one of our favorite dramas from the ‘olden ages’…

It does feel olden ages. How long has it been though?

Raine: Let’s not put a number on it and make it absolutely shameful…

Akiko: (Egging Raine on) Fighting!! ^_^

Raine: And now for the very untimely recap…

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?

Note: This review WILL contain spoilers Continue reading

Sungkyungkwan Scandal: Character Introductions

by: Raine

Howdy folks! Time for a retrocap and I will be collaborating with the amazing Akiko from An Entertaining Cup of Morning Coffee. When deciding on what to recap, Akiko and I were at a loss. We wanted something we could take our time on but also something really fun. Fashion King and Rooftop Prince had just ended and we realized that we could get both of our Micky Yoochun and Yoo Ah-in fixes in ONE place: Sungkyunkwan Scandal. Plus, we’d get Park Min-young and Song Joong-ki. What else could we ask for?

To be updated as we progress further in the drama.

The first episode recap will be hosted by Akiko.

Fashion King: Episode 20 (Final) Recap

by: Raine

Episode 20 came in at 9.6%. Ratings went up…how is that possible?

AAAAAAAHHHHHHHHHHH! It’s done! It’s done! Hoo-frickin’-ray! *happy dance* *busts open the beer and soju* Who wants?

And about the actual episode: this was a horrible finale. I have the worst feeling in my gut right now. It’s not the content. It’s the delivery. The context…or the lack thereof. I’m not moved. Rather, I’m confused. That’s not a good way to leave your viewer.

Fashion King: Episode 19 Recap

by: Raine

Episode 19 remained stagnant at 9.5%. In the picture above, I imagine Jae-hyuk thinking this: “We can get through two more episodes of this nightmare. *fistpump* And then I’ll get to go visit Raine as she recovers from her bilateral carpel tunnel surgery that she’s having on Friday.” Of course, that isn’t what he’s doing at all, but a girl can dream.

I want to shoot myself when I watch this show. It’s so boring now. I don’t even want to know what happens. But, I have readers to attend to so onward we go!
