Coffee HouseFirst of all, if it weren't for Kang Ji Hwan, I would NOT be watching this drama. I'm not the biggest fan of the lead girl (or at least the girl who I thought was the 'second' girl but turned out to be the lead girl (she was second girl in My Girl too). And though when I watch Kdramas that don't have Yoon Eun Hye in them (they're rare, but they happen), I always like the lead girl. In this case, I thought the lead girl was Ham Eun-Jung from T-Ara as the bubbly secretary Seung Yeon but I was wrong.
Still, it was fun to see Ji Hwan in something else -- something completely different and quite crazy. Playing Jin Soo, the eccentric writer, he really pulled this drama together for me. Plot-wise, it was a little crazy as well and the second lead guy was NOWHERE near hot, so it really was because of him that I kept hanging on to all 18 episodes, which i ended up enjoying anyway.

And though she has Dong Wook (sort of, I feel bad for him too, she's just not that into him), I'm glad she was able to go to Galapagos. That scene with them in the coffee shop, on the night before he leaves for good, really breaks my heart. She's just there, crying in front of him, for an hour. And she knows him so well not to expect any sort of comfort other than his presence.

Still, as a way of keeping myself sane with the lack of Lie to Me in my life, this show wasn't a bad watch at all. And as much as I complain about the coupling, I did enjoy how things went (EVEN AFTER THEY TURNED KANG JI HWAN BLONDE!!! THE HORROR!!!). I'll be moving on to My Fair Lady next since i never did finish that. Perhaps the second time around, I'll enjoy it more.

Pretty Little Liars 02x04: Blind DatesLet me start off by saying I am very very glad that Wren is back. I don't know how long they're going to keep him but he made me interested in the Spencer plotline again. I honestly just want Melissa to disappear and now that it seems like someone's offed Ian, I hope we see less of this entire plot, but more of Wren. He needs to come back, permanently. I doubt they'll pit him against Tobey (since that just seems so far-fetched), but it would be nice to have at least one pretty boy back.
And though I want Hanna and Caleb to get back together, Lucas is so adorable being a total doofus on his date. It was 'nice' of Caleb and Hanna to get together and support Lucas, but it's got to be the easiest plot line to take to get them back together again. I don't know how many episodes they're going to make us wait before this happens, but you know, it is going to happen.
And i know we're four episodes in but wow, they really leveled up with Alison's brother. Is Jason flirting with Aria or is it just me? I don't really care about Aria's family problems and only really like her when she's with Ezra so I wonder how they'll fit in this 'associating-with-Jason' bit. At this point, I know no matter who they reveal to be A will be a total letdown (what with all the building up), so this is just for fun.
