Drama Rambles: Heaven’s Garden (2011-2012)



This drama that finished airing in march 2012 came as a surprise to me. The basic plot of this story is that Jung Jae In (Yoo Ho Jung) brings her daughters Eun Soo (Kim Sae Ron) and Hyun Soo (Ahn Seo Hyun) to live at her estranged father Boo Sik’s (Choi Bool Am) home in a mountain village in Kangwon Province just as a temporary measure while she tries to sort out her previously succesful husband who’s in jail, and the fact that her marriage is falling apart at the seams. It wasn’t a move that was meant to last.  Continue reading


Secret Love Affair – Episode 3 Recap


Episode 3

Wow.. we’ve got a lot going on in just one episode, and our characters go through a wide range of emotions and experiences within an hour.  Though the episode still feels moody in it’s style and pacing, in reality it’s plot really moved forward quite quickly. During this episode I may have ended up changing opinions about some people, and I’m glad, I hate hating on sad people.

Secret Love Affair – Episode 2 Recap

Episode 2

I’ve got to admit that I have very little tolerance for corporate shenanigans and one-upmanship that keeps going on  between the ladies at the Seo Arts foundation and school. I really don’t care. like at all. Everything else I’m interested in, even in petty man-child Kang Joon Hyung (I made a mistake last time with his name, I’ve since corrected it).  Continue reading

Wonderful Mama- Open Discussion eps 1-28

Wonderful Mama

This is a weekend drama being broadcast on SBS and is slated to be around fifty episodes.  The ratings have been middling according to AGB Nielson Nationwide ranging from 6.0 – 9.2. The highest (the 9.2 was reached on their 26th episode) I want everybody who’s watching this drama come and discuss in this post what they think, what they like, dislike or just want to rant about related to the drama to do so in this page. I couldn’t find anywhere to talk about it, so I’m thinking that we’re in need of a small space to do so!

Important Note: If you haven’t seen up till episode 28 be forewarned that Spoilers lie in wait in the murky waters of my post and comment sections. Get thee gone Spoiler Phobes, and come back once you’ve reached the 28th episode. I don’t hate thee, I’m one of you too!! but I don’t wish to incur your wrath by spoiling it for you!! So hie thee to your computer and marathon it and come back to rave in this lunatic’s closet! Continue reading

Arang and the Magistrate: Episodes 1-4

Arang and the Magistrate

Episode 1-4

So I watched the first four episodes of Arang and the Magistrate and I find that I am very impressed with it’s cinematographic beauty not to mention it’s quirky attitude and charming story (so-far). The vividness of the color, the sharpness in detail, the interesting angles, added to the crazy story that has actually managed to get me fully behind Arang, it’s really obvious that the director and the writer have a method to their madness because it all comes together to make it a visual delicacy.  Nom Nom, I’m eating it up with Joon Ki as the main dish! (I luff him ) Continue reading
