KBS secret agent thriller Spy rounds out cast
by | November 28, 2014 | 129 Comments
Jaejoong, Go Sung-hee You know, I really wish this drama had picked a different title — for a drama about spies, it’s a little lacking in covert slickness. KBS’s new Friday night drama Spy has secured its leading cast, and plans to enter production shortly. Idol actor Kim Jaejoong (Triangle) will be headlining as expected,... More »

Secret Door: Episode 15

There are some great moments between our prince and princess in this episode. (They touch! On purpose!) The rest, I could take or leave, since there’s a lot of setup and people shifting their alliances (and re-shifting them) before the other shoe drops, and that usually just makes me want to skip to the part...

Reporters and buried secrets drive action thriller Healer
by | November 6, 2014 | 32 Comments
I’m still trying to figure out how all the pieces of KBS’s Healer fit together, but on the upside at least all of the parts seem interesting. It sounds part action movie, part suspense thriller, part mystery, and part spy caper; the last teaser video put me in mind of City Hunter, but since I... More »

It definitely feels like we’re at the peak of the first half of our story, as every single conflict comes to a head in one gruesome trial, with one side willing to die to expose the truth, and the other determined to kill if they have to, to keep it hidden. One guess as to... More »

girlfriday: Uh… so apparently Secret Door is suddenly replacing Kim Yoo-jung with… Yoon So-hee (Marriage Not Dating, Let’s Eat)??? javabeans: What! Why? That’s the stupidest thing. The articles are saying that this is a “baton pass” between child role to adult, but my bullshit meter is flying up to 11, for so many reasons. First... More »

(It’s a really... More »

Ack, is it already time to start shattering the prince’s trust in his father? I know that on a basic level this is what the entire show is about, but is it asking for too much to delay the process for as long as humanly possible? What if we run out of tears—what will you... More »

Secret Door: Episode 10
by | October 21, 2014 | 44 Comments
This episode is all about parenthood, and in particular, the fraught territory of the father-son relationship. And yet it’s not even about Yeongjo and Sun’s increasingly conflicted relationship—at least, not directly. Everything’ll lead to that relationship in the end, but on the surface today’s plotlines are about other characters’ parental relationships, which then serve as... More »

This episode marks the death of politeness—everyone stops dancing around and playing nice on the surface, and we witness how quickly one false move puts the prince’s life in peril. The political claws get sharpened out in the open, and in a fantastic move, once the prince’s hands are tied, we get to see what... More »
