As if everything wasn’t already a test for Dal-hyang, now it’s his loyalty that gets put through the wringer when he’s faced with obeying his king, a prince he could probably do with seeing a little less of, or himself. But it’s as hard to know what he wants sometimes as it is to know... More »

It’s time for our hero to face reality, which means he has to confront some realizations about himself and his family he’d much rather shy away from. By no means is it the easiest of hours to sit through, but at least it’s not all doom and gloom—there’s always a light moment to break up... More »

The day we dreaded since we first fell in love is finally upon us, which means that it’s time to say goodbye to the zany and whimsical side of Fated To Love You, while conveniently shelving the angsty side somewhere easily forgotten.

It feels like only last week that these two bickering lovebirds were still finding their footing relationship-wise, but if it were up to Jae-yeol, we’d already hear wedding bells ringing.

by | August 23, 2014 | 113 Comments
This is one complicated couple, and not just because one of them sees imaginary people and invents entire lives for them.

Good intentions can be just as poisonous as bad ones, as our hero maybe kinda sorta hasn’t come to realize just yet.
