Hyde, Jekyll, Me: Episode 16
by | March 12, 2015 | 68 Comments
I like this show so much better when we focus on small character moments and growth like we do today, rather than silly plot machinations that make me question my faith in law enforcement. Now that the smoke has cleared, the more important conflict comes into play: When Hana is forced to choose between Robin... More »

by | March 12, 2015 | 61 Comments
The first teaser is out for SBS’s new Wednesday-Thursday drama Girl Who Sees Smells, and though the production is super low-rent (really, you couldn’t manage to think of anything other than shooting on an empty soundstage?), I can actually see Park Yoochun and Shin Se-kyung being cute together.

This is just a tiny peek, but cameras are rolling on the set of SBS’s new Wednesday-Thursday drama Girl Who Sees Smells, formerly known as Sensory Couple.

Hyde, Jekyll, Me: Episode 14

Oh I like this episode. There’s payoff in the central conflict, and more time spent with our three main characters and the developing romance. Er, romances. The jury’s still out on whether Hana is dating two guys or one, but the closer she gets to both of them, the more complicated it all becomes. If... More »
