Moon Lovers: Scarlet Heart Ryeo: Episode 3
by | August 31, 2016 | 724 Comments
The story heats up and there’s a lot more of everything in Episode 3—more blood, more intrigue, more confused feelings, and more all-around action. The intensity gets dialed up a notch, too, with tension built into many of the interactions today. And while I still find my interest mostly in the main three characters, I’m... More »

And now it’s time for Episode 2 of Moon Lovers, which I know aired yesterday, and there’s a whole third episode sitting here waiting for me to get to it. I’m recapping like the wind, I swear! A really slow, tired wind with joint problems. The second episode was a lot more action-packed than the... More »

Today saw the premiere of a new Monday-Tuesday drama, SBS’s much-anticipated Moon Lovers: Scarlet Heart Ryeo, which is another entry into the ranks of the 100 percent pre-produced dramas. (That’s also a mouthful of a title, so we can call it simply Moon Lovers from here on out.) With the pre-produced dramas performing erratically (Descended... More »

by | August 26, 2016 | 118 Comments
He’ll always be Healer to me, but Ji Chang-wook looks like he’ll be just as action-driven for his latest drama, tvN’s upcoming The K2. In the show, he plays a former elite soldier who is employed as a bodyguard to the wife of a presidential candidate, who’s played by Song Yoon-ah (Assembly). Although in this... More »

Moonlight Drawn By Clouds: Episode 2
by | August 23, 2016 | 170 Comments
The cuteness continues, and these two are at it again with more bickering and adorable petty pranking. Today the tables turn with the power dynamic upturned and the advantage shifting in the opposite direction, and we waste no time getting to the central setup, forcing our heroine into this unplanned new territory. I love that... More »

Moonlight Drawn By Clouds: Episode 1
by | August 22, 2016 | 152 Comments
Moonlight Drawn By Clouds is basically cuteness overload. It’s not your grandpa’s sageuk, or even your mother’s sageuk, and makes no claims to historical realism. If anything, this is your little sister’s sageuk, full of puppies and rainbows and an effervescent bright spirit, and I mean that in all of the good ways—it’s youthful but... More »

Kim Hyun-joo goes back to high school for Fantastic

For a drama that involves a main character with a terminal disease, JTBC’s Fantastic sure looks upbeat, which is something I could really get behind. That’s not to say that thoughtful, sorrowful terminal-disease dramas don’t have their place… I just think their place just may be far, far away from me at this moment, and... More »
