by | November 1, 2014 | 2 Comments
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 »

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 »

Secrets aren’t safe when everyone seems to be hiding around the corner, but the good news is that we (and Sung-gyum) finally learn who killed Sung-gyum’s father. We also learn who killed Young-mi and Hwang, although the jury is still out as to whether that’s not just another cover-up for the truth. As for as... More »

Will everybody stop breaking the prince’s heart already? Is that so much to ask? …yes, you say? Okay fine, so I know this is a story whose very premise necessitates breaking the prince’s heart and fracturing his trust in everyone near and dear to him.

My Secret Hotel: Episode 14

After a frustrating previous week, this satisfying episode delivers some decisive moments for several characters, both on the mystery front and (mostly) the romance, as well as bringing in, perhaps, the final key figure for the former. It turns out that madcap and nonsensical plans have their uses, and sometimes it only takes small moments... More »

If you were hoping the show would make some progress in answering all the questions we’ve been wondering now for weeks (such as, who’s the killer? Who does Sang-hyo really love? Why don’t Hae-young and Sung-gyum act their age?), you’ll be disappointed. The show nearly goes back to square one in terms of plot, but... More »
