  • Orange Marmalade: Episode 12 (Final)

    If you want to create a brave new world, someone has to be willing to put themselves out and say, “Here I am, please accept me.” Luckily, there are some pretty brave kids willing to do just that, whether for themselves or for their friends. Orange Marmalade set out to make a statement about the world and what it means to be different, and I think it did that in a wonderful way. No matter who or what you are, we are all worthy of love and happiness.

  • Orange Marmalade: Episode 11

    So much cute! Emotions are running so high, there’s practically hearts flying out of everyone’s eyes. Old loves are beginning to be rekindled and new bonds are forged. And as Jae-min tries his best to recall the memories he’s lost, enlisting Ma-ri’s help in the process, he may actually remember a lot more than he ever bargained for.

  • Orange Marmalade: Episode 10

    We re-enter the present-day portion of our story, armed with a better understanding of our characters and the world they live in. In fact you may not even recognize Ma-ri, who seems to have undergone a complete one-eighty and faced her fears, suddenly this beautifully strong and confident young vampire. And the best part is, she’s not afraid who knows it. No matter what happens, Ma-ri will be who she is, making no apologies and feeling no shame, and if Jae-min is too mired in his prejudice to see her for the wonderful person she is, then it’s entirely his loss.

  • Orange Marmalade: Episode 9

    Thankfully, this episode begins where we left off and ties up the Joseon portion of our story quite nicely. Everything comes to a head as Lady Won puts into motion her plan to rule Joseon, and nobody will be able to save their world alone. Everyone must decide which side they’re on in this conflict, which will affect their lives, current and future.

  • Orange Marmalade: Episode 8

    This episode is all about the conflict between the vampires, the other vampires, and the humans, and our leads are swept up in the conflict either by choice or by Fate. Either way they’re trapped, and must find a way to survive regardless of social status or humanity. It could be argued that humanity has nothing to do with whether or not you’re human, as compassion and hatred seem pretty universal.

  • Orange Marmalade: Episode 7

    We finally get down to the gritty part of our Joseon story, as the conflict between the vampires and the humans starts to heat up. A special task force is formed to eradicate the vampires, but they’re not going to take it lying down. If Jae-min and Ma-ri think the worst obstacle they have to overcome is their social standing, they have a lot to learn about their world.

  • Orange Marmalade: Episode 6

    Oh, the bromance! It’s lovely to see how Jae-min and Shi-hoo grew up as friends, and what keeps them together despite their wildly different personalities and interests. It’s clear that their friendship means the world to them, and it’s a shame that the one thing they have in common, is the one thing that could tear them apart.

  • Orange Marmalade: Episode 5

    We enter the Joseon phase of our story, and vampires are living in hiding, getting ready to rise up against the humans who fear and despise them. We get to see our characters from a different perspective, though they face the same issues and challenges as they did in the modern era. Not much has changed in four hundred years, and it’s more than just prejudice that could keep our three main characters apart.

  • Orange Marmalade: Episode 4

    Well, the cute was short-lived, as we’re thrown right into the deep end of the human-vampire conflict. Jae-min learns some terrible truths about Shi-hoo and Ma-ri, and both vampires take matters into their own hands, with varying tragic results. But while it may feel like the end, it’s still only the beginning of this story, and there’s plenty of time to rectify mistakes of the past.

  • Orange Marmalade: Episode 3

    Let the cute commence! Our leads stop hiding their feelings and decide honesty is the best policy, though Ma-ri’s big secret is still one she holds close to the vest. They even make new friends as the band is finally formed, which does good things for Ma-ri’s confidence and Jae-min’s maturity. He’s not ready to forgive his mother yet, but for now at least, he decides to stop punishing himself just to get back at her. Baby steps.

  • Orange Marmalade: Episode 2

    I’m happy to report that not only is the second episode of Orange Marmalade as good as the first, but in my opinion, it’s even better. We learn a bit more about our characters and their pasts, and discover some surprising connections. A newcomer to school shakes things up, and Jae-min will have to elevate his game if he wants to win the girl… but first he’ll have to make her notice that he actually, you know, exists.

  • Orange Marmalade: Episode 1

    I have a good feeling about this one, guys. Orange Marmalade’s premiere episode strikes a balance that seems note-perfect so far, setting up a world that’s sweet and normal on the surface, but conflicted and troubled underneath. This premiere is all about establishing the dramaverse and the characters, and only gives hints at what’s to come in terms of the actual storyline, which can often be a weakness in a first episode. But in this case, it just makes me eager to see more, and in that sense I’m calling this a strong, solid start.

  • Yeo Jin-gu falls in love with vampire for Orange Marmalade

    We already knew that Yeo (Potato Star 2013QR3, I Miss You) was considering the lead for Orange Marmalade, and now he has officially confirmed. He’ll play the hero who’s both got a chic and a kind personality, which aren’t two words often paired together. He’s the perfect boy next door type that all the mothers love, and if that weren’t swoony enough, when he falls for a vampire girl, his pure, sweet love makes him utterly devoted to her.
