It’s been a long week and an even longer wait for our characters, but my biggest fears have been assuaged and I feel good about where we’re headed for the final two episodes. Narratively speaking, the show benefitted from having this episode delayed a week, to give loss and heartache a chance to feel like... More »

Ooh, drama reunion! I never saw Lee Bo-young (God’s Gift–14 Days) and Lee Sang-yoon (On the Way to the Airport) together in their hit weekend drama My Daughter Seo-young, but I love each of them separately, and based on the cute couple stills and the ratings (it was a huge hit that reached 47.6%), I...

The bloody battle for the people’s hearts begins in Rebel
by | January 16, 2017 | 46 Comments
I spent months only seeing Yoon Kyun-sang (Doctors) as a giant baby who loves fluffy kitties in Three Meals a Day, so it’s a little jarring to see him covered in blood and making battle cries.

Ah finally, some more updates on Strong Woman Do Bong-soon.
