Myung-wol the Spy: Episode 9
by | August 8, 2011 | 103 Comments
Thankfully when you set up a world so zany, there’s no plot twist you can create that doesn’t sound any crazier than the last. For example, Operation Marry Hallyu Star vs. Operation Become Hallyu Star. Why the hell not? The downside is that it doesn’t do much to propel the characters forward, as we stay... More »

Yay, so cute! Now the race between the two boys finally begins, and one makes more strides than expected, while the other crashes and burns. There’s cuteness, aggravation, and dancing, but the real adventure involves a dog and a quick getaway. I wonder if the Dog Days are really coming to an end, or if... More »

Myung-wol the Spy: Episode 8
by | August 2, 2011 | 183 Comments
Twists, feelings, and fisticuffs! And yes, that look on Kang-woo’s face is the very first time he’s awed by someone’s beauty… other than his own. I may have squealed out loud on more than one occasion in this insanely hilarious episode, but I swear, it had nothing to do with the shower scene. Scout’s honor.... More »

Wherein Eric argues with self. Because why not, really? Eric is one of those stars known for being off-the-wall (he’s pretty infamous for being a 4-D Hallyu star), and it seems he’s outdone himself this time, creating a twitter account for his Myung-wol the Spy character Kang-woo, and then tweeting back and forth as Eric...

Not like you didn’t own me before, Show, but this finale-lead-in? Kicks so much ass. I honestly didn’t think City Hunter was going to go out as strong as it came in, but I’m happy to be wrong. So giddy. I knew my love was not for naught. Tags: City Hunter, featured, Lee Jun-hyuk, Lee... More »
