Record of Youth: Episodes 13-14 Review

After the last two episodes, our Saya decided to take a break from Record of Youth to preserve her sanity. She can be currently found in greener and more nourishing pastures over at the reviews of 18 Again. But I clearly have less sense, so here we are. Volunteering to brave the last two weeks… Continue reading Record of Youth: Episodes 13-14 Review

Record of Youth: Episodes 11-12 Review

We’re not allowed to put spoilers in this part of the post, so I’m just going to go ahead and tell you guys that this week was a week of drama where drama happened. Hye-joon had drama. Jung-ha had drama. Hae-hyo had drama. Some of them had drama together. Some of the drama was all… Continue reading Record of Youth: Episodes 11-12 Review

Record of Youth: Episodes 9-10 Review

Now we’ve crested the midpoint of the show, we launch right into a whole different game of... "celebrity is as celebrity does"? Hye-joon's star is rising, and with great fame comes great envy all around, and more complicated feelings from the people closest to him who love him most. My feeling is that we'll soon… Continue reading Record of Youth: Episodes 9-10 Review

Down below, we look at what those connections do to them, and what they… Continue reading Record of Youth: Episodes 5-6 Review

Record of Youth: Episodes 3-4 Review

The second week of Record of Youth continues to add layers to its already layered relationships. I’m surprised by just how much ground the show covers in two hours—meaning that a whole lot of change has happened since opening week (also whoops, we're behind, but we still haven't decided whether to run full cover on… Continue reading Record of Youth: Episodes 3-4 Review

Record of Youth: Episodes 1-2 Review

This is what you call a drama with 'pedigree'. It's got the cast and the crew. The mighty Ha Myung-hee penned this tale, and so of course, its beats have us dancing. We had a lot of thoughts after the first week, but it took us a while to gather and analyze our feelings. We… Continue reading Record of Youth: Episodes 1-2 Review
