Ghost: Episode 9

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 »

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...

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...

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 »

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 »

This series is moving way too fast. Things are being unraveled and revealed much sooner than I expected them to be, which is a good thing since it keeps to a fast pace and makes the ante high. But then it makes me wonder whether this series will fizzle out sooner or later. Right now it’s... More »

Now THIS was quite the interesting episode! I’m happy to say that the ‘phantom’ serial killer case gets wrapped up in this episode, but that’s not why I’m so excited. Rather, I was quite excited to see that there are consequences to the Woo Hyun-identity swap. It was a twist I was not quite expecting,... More »

For the first time in this series, I felt a teensy weensy bit of heart for Mayor Kim. I mean teensy. Mainly it’s because Mayor Kim was actually showing some fatherly wisdom for once in this episode. But Mayor Kim is still a corrupt politician, and so I still want to see him go down. Here’s episode... More »

It’s a new start for Woo Hyun/Ki Young – and that also means a new case. Whee! Murders, crime, mystery galore! But despite all that good stuff, “The Phantom of the Opera” is oft-repeated in this episode. While it’s a great theme for our big bad Phantom, it’s also becoming quite overused.... More »
