Jeon Woo-chi: Episode 2
by | November 22, 2012 | 22 Comments
Thankfully a more coherent second episode, with some illuminating backstory as to why the hero/villain bromance went sideways (or perhaps was doomed from the get-go), as well as a present-day mystery that effectively brings all our main characters into one story space, and on a crash course with each other. It’s a good thing too,... More »

There’s also a boatload of new stills from the movie set, showing that the “P.S.” for phone sex isn’t... More »

Joo-won, back to dramaland so soon? We barely had a chance to miss ya. Well you know you won’t hear me complain about it, though it IS confusing for those of us still holding onto Gaksitaaaaaal. Guess now’s a good a time as any to begin letting go, whether we like it or not. And... More »

Vampire Prosecutor 2: Episode 11 (Final)
by | November 18, 2012 | 103 Comments
Badass. So badass, in fact, that I immediately want to watch it again. I sort of wonder if they saved all their eggs for the finale this season, instead of doling out the awesome little by little, because the final episode is considerably better than the past ten. It’s go-go-go from start to finish, and... More »

Character introductions and kisses for Jeon Woo-chi
by | November 16, 2012 | 52 Comments
Aw, smoochies, smoochies for everyone! Get ’em while you can, I say, especially since we know there’s a whole revenge plot to come, once happiness and loved ones get stripped away from our hero. But before the darkness and mayhem, it’s nice to know that life in utopia is, well, perfect. It’s a still-a-palooza for... More »

I Miss You: Episode 4
by | November 15, 2012 | 282 Comments
The search begins, as we face the fallout from yesterday’s tragedy, and it’s actually Detective Kim who takes center stage in this episode, as a much-needed (and let’s face it, only) father figure in these kids’ lives. Jung-woo grows up as well, and man, I know that growing up is hard to do, but today... More »
