I loved the movie, but also tried to give this series a fair chance. I did enjoy the first episode, but after three more episodes (and watching the first few minutes of the fifth), I just can't believe anyone could think positively of this drama. For me, the fundamental problem is that there is abso...

Correct me if I'm wrong, but I always got the feeling that to the Japanese standards of beauty, short to medium height on a female (around 155-166 cm) is considered more attractive than a tall frame. At least, I can't think of too many female Japanese celebrities who are especially tall, especially...

DUDEZ... The pictures from the original post can be found on the "deri health" site that gnossienneslent linked to! http://www.kunoichik.com/main.html Just click on the Girls button, and she's in the left column, second from the bottom. They show her name as "Chie", but I can't read Japanese and the...

Dang, I can't see any of the photos, whether I access this page directly or use a South Korean proxy server (I'm in China right now). EDIT: Never mind, for some reason I was able to see the pics after I posted by using the "View Your Post" option. Still, it would be nice to have a link to the origin...

That's so funny, I totally agree. I just tried jajangmyun for the first time, but I didn't like it. Is it supposed to be bland? As other posters noted, it was originally a Chinese dish. The first zhajiangmian I tried was cooked by my uncle (he's from Sichuan province in China), and it was fantastic...

To top it off, Mandarin is tonal -- whether a syllable is said with, for example, a rising or a falling tone will give it a complete different meaning. In other words, the odds of pokute being able to say a sentence like that -intelligibly- is absolutely zero. And if a Chinese guy stood up in an off...

Wow, I just finished watching this series last night. I've watched/started to watch about half a dozen Korean dramas so far, and this one was by far the best! It violated my Hottie Rule -- that picking a movie/series to watch based a particular Hot Actress will invariably lead to disappointment. I s...

I have to agree with TheBombtastic1. This vote is rigged! I mean, can you imagine if a Chinese food lover had a poll asking you to choose between: 1. Bean sprouts (for Vietnamese) 2. Daikon (for Japanese) 3. Doenjang (fermented soy bean paste, for Korean) 4. DIM SUM Come on! I love all four of these...
