W–Two Worlds: Episode 15
by | September 8, 2016 | 333 Comments
It’s the beginning of the end, for W the manhwa and the show, and I’m suddenly starting to get very nervous about how our characters are going to write themselves out of this labyrinth of a parallel universe filled with narrative booby-traps.

W–Two Worlds: Episode 14

Let’s be honest—on a good day, Dad makes my blood boil for the string of terrible decisions he’s made and the effect that’s had on his daughter’s life. He’s weak-willed and pathetic, and pretty much the source of all my frustrations when it comes to our hero’s pain. But when two adversaries stand to lose... More »

MBC in talks to conclude W with special broadcast
by | September 2, 2016 | 160 Comments
I’m not surprised that MBC is working on getting a special broadcast together for current Wednesday-Thursday ratings leader W–Two Worlds. The romance suspense drama about parallel worlds starring Lee Jong-seok and Han Hyo-joo isn’t a ratings juggernaut — I think it’s a little too fantasy for that, or in the words of my mother, “Too...

Moonlight Drawn By Clouds: Episode 4
by | August 30, 2016 | 380 Comments
Aaahhh, it’s getting so good! This show has such a lovely way with emotion, and setting, and tone. It’s a simple narrative that’s smartly directed, so that we’re made to feel every nervous pitter-patter of budding attraction, or heartache filled with yearning, and I just get swept away in what the characters are feeling in...
