Thrice Married Woman, episodes 1-31: Why am I watching this?!

ews20140301_thricemarriedwoman1

This is a “Thrice Married Woman” post. Yes, I’m still watching this ish. Yes, this show I am all caught up on, despite being weeks behind on “I Need Romance 3″ and “You From Another Star.” Believe me, the completely unnecessary 8-episode extension is doing nobody any favors, but I think there are some important takeaways from the story, which is why I keep watching.

Discussion touches on plot points up to episode 31.

Heirs, episodes 11 and 12: That one good scene

ews20131114heirs_kimwoobin_parkshinhye1

Sorry, this blog has become an “Heirs” blog.

Let’s cut right to it: Choi Young-do, I, what? Huh??? He was my biggest gripe at the start of the story: there were sparks of something interesting in his character but he was just too terrible and frightening to justify whatever interesting qualities he might have as a love rival to Tan. “Heirs” is a G-rated drama but if Choi Young-do were a movie character, I’m sure he would’ve killed some peoples and those people’s moms and/or puppies by the 30-minute mark, and that doesn’t make a good, realistic romantic interest to root for, no matter how sometimes charming the bad-boy facade.

But 12 episodes in and Choi Young-do might be the most interesting of our three leads and developing nicely in layers, too. I read some general conspiracy theory-ish spoilers that I’m hoping will prove false, because I don’t really care about the plights of anybody on this drama anymore (except Lee Bona! I wuff her), and I’d rather Choi Young-do continue developing, even if he ends up being the loser of this whole triangular spectacular.

Drama styling tips #7a: Heirs, episodes 1 to 10

ews20131110heirs_krystal1

Drama styling tips are actually my favorite posts but I haven’t done one in two years since “City Hunter.” Then I actually sat down to compile one and this is what my desktop looked like as I was sorting through images, and I remembered why I haven’t done one in two years. Whoops.

This is an extremely image-heavy post given the huge cast, so you’ve been warned!

There’s an accidental pink theme going on?
