Well Young Mi really gets beaten about in this episode! She gets attacked by Mrs. Song and even slapped across the face by the sweet Sun Mi. I don’t condone violence, but when Young Mi finally tells Mrs. Song that she was only using Woo Jin to get back at Mrs. Song and Sun Mi, I can see why Mrs. Song would lose her cool. She’s devastated to see her son in such a state over a woman she knew from the start was no good for him. So Woo Jin has two women in his life that support him, but blimey, he is SO WEAK. Young Mi has treated him terribly but really, come on Woo Jin, everyone gets heartbroken sometime. I’m obviously not in a very sympathetic mood this morning!

This episode is all about Woo Jin as he struggles to come to terms with his break up with Young Mi. He discovers more about her and the way she operates and it’s not pretty! So reality finally hits him. Poor Woo Jin. I’m feeling bad for him but I just wish he’d got out sooner before it was too late. How could he be so naive? Meanwhile, Young Mi is doing everything in her power to win over Hyung Chul by working hard for the company and flirting with him at the same time. And although this is annoying to watch (!), at least we can be sure that he’s never going to be interested in her. Continue reading “All About Eve Episode 13” »
I don’t think I’ve ever watched a drama where so much of the action takes place in bathrooms and public toilets! Characters meet in toilets, they argue and fight in toilets, they go into the toilets of the opposite sex, and even get possessed by ghosts in toilets. I guess these scenes show us more about the personality of the characters or they move the plot along by allowing characters to meet. I think it adds to the quirky feel of the drama too. But at times, I found myself thinking, ‘ What? Not another bathroom scene?” Continue reading “New Tales of Gisaeng: 7 bathroom scenes” »
Power couple Jang Dong Geon and Ko So Young were photographed at Incheon airport on Thursday before catching a flight to London. They both have photo shoots and Ko So Young will also be attending London Fashion Week which is on right now, September16 – 21. Jang Dong Geon (A.K.A Hyung Chul) has a new film, My Way, coming out at the end of the year.
The mobile phone episode
Well, Young Mi really starts playing hardball in this episode. She’s consumed with jealousy as she watches Sun Mi get lots of positive attention after her emotional outburst on the evening news! Young Mi is desperate to get her job back and she comes up with a plan to humiliate Sun Mi and make her look unprofessional again. Her mobile phone trick works but not content with this, she also continues her other plan which is to snatch Hyung Chul away from Sun Mi. But the mobile phone incident also gets Sun Mi and Hyung Chul back on speaking terms – this is one of my favourite scenes of the whole drama. Continue reading “All About Eve Episode 12” »
So at last the final episode! After a dodgy start, I felt that the drama got stronger and the last 10 episodes were the best of all! In the final episode the battle of the grandfathers begins! Sa Ran has become more popular than ever now that the truth about her real parents is revealed. And there is still a lot going on in the finale including a baby’s birthday party, a funeral, and a sad farewell at the airport.
This morning I watched some of 도전1000곡 (to-cheon 1000 kok) which is a kind of karaoke singing competition for ‘talent’ on SBS. Actors and entertainers take turns to choose a number which is then put into the karaoke machine. After that, the celebrities have to sing whichever song starts playing. (You need to know a lot of songs to be good at this!) Continue reading “Chuseok TV” »
