Ghost: Episode 13
by | July 14, 2012 | 34 Comments
Important plot developments! It’s hard to believe that we’re more than halfway through the series now, so we’re supposed to be getting closer to nabbing Hyun Min, and yet we’re not. It feels like our Three Musketeers have a long way to go before the truth can be revealed. But here’s the question – can... More »

Ghost: Episode 12

In light of recent events, and to Rose‘s amazing suggestion, I am officially renaming our main character “Woo-Young.” “Woo-Young” refers to Ki Young with Woo Hyun’s face. “Woo Hyun” will henceforth refer to the one who died in the blast, and “Ki Young” will refer to Ki Young in the flashbacks. I hope that makes sense! Let’s... More »

Oh my goodness! The twists and the turns, plus a very much needed backstory to help clarify everything. I have to admit that after a while, dates and years were all swimming in my head, but thank goodness for flashbacks! I even got my wish granted of seeing a younger Hyun Min with his dad.... More »

Ghost: Episode 10

We don’t have idiots on this show! Not only are Hyuk Joo and Woo Hyun incredibly sharp and suspicious of everything, but Hyun Min has quite the expansive network and his uncle has quite a keen mind despite his feeble state. So while we have everyone trying to prove that Hyun Min is the real... More »

Hero: Episode 9 (Final)

We’re at the end! But this drama has also given us a chance to aspire to a new start. It’s reflected in the title of the episode as well: “Endgame Part 2 – A Shadowless City.” It’s the end of a long game between Vigilante vs. Corruption, but the dream to have a ‘shadowless city’... More »

Wahaha! Two cops that hate each other to the core + one car + one case + dash of TaeTiSeo - cyber hacking = good old-fashioned buddy cop episode. I think I even fell in love with Hyuk Joo in this episode for just a moment. Five minutes… multiplied by the three times I replayed... More »

Hero: Episode 8

This episode is epic! Since it’s near the end of the series, episodes 7-9 are all connected in that things accelerate to the final showdown. What may have been passed off as “Just another job for vigilante Heuk Chul!” in episode 7 ended up pushing the plot forward to a thrilling end – or what... More »

This school is CRAAAAY-ZAYYYY. School has never felt more like a prison until this drama, where the teachers can be so evil in the name of “doing what’s best for the kids.” It’s the most extreme depiction of “Asian Kids Only Study” stereotype I have seen in a drama so far, and boy does it...

Ghost: Episode 7

Because one case is not enough, we have two! There’s seriously no rest for our poor cyber crime team. While I was not too impressed with this week’s case of cyber bullying, what made up for it was the development of Hyun Min’s character. I am starting to think that the odd-numbered episodes are a...

Hero: Episode 7

There’s a throwaway line in episode 6 about the spreading of the flu that ends up being the plotpoint of this episode. It’s kind of awesome because then I feel like the writers are really establishing a world for us rather than just creating circumstances and obstacles out of thin air whenever it’s necessary. Here’s... More »

Ghost: Episode 6

Ha! I never thought I’d say this but – I appreciated this episode for its slowness. Instead of giving us another case and another criminal, we took a more introspective look towards Ki Young’s past . Yes – this also means Daniel Choi is back! But with more information comes more questions, and we’re finally... More »
