by | October 6, 2015 | 60 Comments
I’m always wary of jumping onboard a long-running drama, because man that is a time commitment, but I did find Six Flying Dragons rather strong in its premiere. This is a drama with a lot of hype going in, and it’s a hype that didn’t really move me since sageuks this long often require such... More »

Legal thriller Remember up to follow Village on SBS
by | October 1, 2015 | 61 Comments

Or maybe more than a little sadness, since the whole production screams melodrama and tears. It’s grand drama all the way, with the poster’s tagline reading “Let’s love, while expecting it will last... More »
