The Lonely Shining Goblin: Episode 8
by | December 24, 2016 | 505 Comments

Legend of the Blue Sea: Episode 12
by | December 22, 2016 | 223 Comments
I don’t think I’ve ever liked Lee Min-ho this much, which is a surprise because I liked him an awful lot in his Boys Before Flowers and City Hunter days, and so very little in the years following that I wasn’t sure I’d ever come around again. But Joon-jae flailing is my favorite thing right... More »

The Lonely Shining Goblin: Episode 5
by | December 16, 2016 | 413 Comments
I was all set to gush about the Goblin-Reaper’s deadpan bickering being my favorite thing about this show, but then the show went and pulled a big dramatic move, which suddenly makes the light banter feel small in comparison.
