Yong-pal: Episode 8
by | August 29, 2015 | 277 Comments
There’s no dearth of feelings in this episode, and jealousy is to blame as a catalyst for most of them. But everyone who formerly wanted a piece of Yeo-jin now thinks they can do without her, even our hero—though he never sacrifices who he is at her expense, and even when he tries, the results...

The Sleeping Beauty awakens thanks to our hero, and while he may not be a storybook prince, he still manages to charm his way into the princess’ good graces. What starts out as a shaky alliance turns into an unlikely friendship between two people who, despite their differing social status, find out they have a... More »

The Time I’ve Loved You: Episode 16 (Final)

There’s nothing that’ll surprise anyone here, which shouldn’t come as a surprise to anyone who’s been following along. But alas, we’ve finally reached the end of a road with way too many unnecessary detours for its own good, one where the destination is so padded and fluffy (and two hours long!) that it theoretically should...

Welcome to the beginning of a two-episode epilogue, replete with our two friendbirds learning how to navigate the transition between seventeen years of platonic togetherness and a newly formed relationship. But to those seeking conflict, you might want to look elsewhere, because who needs that taking up valuable screen time when those scenes could be... More »

Yong-pal: Episode 3
by | August 14, 2015 | 104 Comments
I like it. I really, really like it. Yong-pal is sleek, stylish, but most of all, human—and it never gets so caught up in its beautiful and sometimes haunting imagery that it forgets what it wants to say. It’s just the opposite actually, since the visuals work to add depth to the narrative, which isn’t... More »

The Time I’ve Loved You: Episode 14
by | August 11, 2015 | 57 Comments
Feelings get sorted out on all sides this hour, giving previously irrational characters a sudden sense of—well, sense—in an hour that feels way more like a finale than it probably ought to. Still, for anyone who’s been waiting patiently for more Hana and Won action, then this is the episode for you. Who next week’s... More »

Only friends can get away with throwing each other belated birthday parties, even if they should’ve been the ones most on top of said friend’s birthday in the first place. Hana and Won come to some sort of agreement about where their friendship stands in relation to the revelations posed by his confession(-ish) this episode,... More »

The Time I’ve Loved You: Episode 12
by | August 7, 2015 | 89 Comments
After all this time, some major problems the show set up for itself are finally addressed—though the conveniently timed pseudo-explanations may (nay, will) leave you with more questions than answers. But at least there’s some forward progress with Won, even if it took seventeen years for him to just change his mind. At the end... More »

Awww yeah, these two are definitely where the action isn’t. Get ready for more of the same this hour with some minor variations, though it’s already an improvement over last week since things actually happen… slowly. If there are two constants that can be said of this show, it’s that you always know what they’re... More »

High Society: Episode 16 (Final)
by | July 30, 2015 | 130 Comments
Every loose thread finds its partner and the bow it belongs to in a solid finale that showcases the best of what High Society had to offer, which definitely has nothing to do with business or any sort of commentary on the class divide. But if you were just here for the romance, then this... More »

Get ready for less of the relationship we might’ve once cared about for the one that no one wants or understands, least of all the two people directly involved. It’s an hour where Hana has to defend her unholy union to those who actually love and care about her with very mixed results, culminating in... More »
