Ghost: Episode 5
by | June 16, 2012 | 48 Comments
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 »

Ghost: Episode 4

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 »

Hero: Episode 6

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 »

Ghost: Episode 3

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.

Ghost: Episode 2

Episode 2 seriously kicks up the ante, and I have to admit that the acting gets a bit better from So Ji Sub and Lee Yeon Hee. This episode had enough instances of “What the crap just happened?” that made me want to reach through the computer and grab the characters by the collar to scream, “EXPLAIN YOURSELVES NOW!”...

I like the title for this episode – “China Gate” – because of its double entendre. But what’s best about this episode is that we learn histories of important characters in a fruitful way. It’s not like in episode 3, where we met someone from Yi On’s past. Now, we learn about Yi On, Hyuk... More »

YAYAYAYAYAYA! You all probably have no idea how excited I was for this drama. And no, it’s not because of So Ji Sub or Lee Yeon Hee (pshaw, who?). Rather, I’m more excited for the writer Kim Eun Hee, as she gave the drama world Sign and Harvest Villa. Tags: Daniel Choi, Eom Ki-joon, featured, first episodes,... More »

Ah, a much more satisfying episode. We’re back on track with focusing on Heuk Chul and him using his newfound powers for the good of all Muyeong-Mankind. Plus, Jae In is back! I never realized how much I missed him until I saw him again in this episode. Here’s episode 4: “Face of the Devil”... More »

Hero: Episode 3

Things get gnarly in this episode, where loyalties can shift in a blink of an eye. An episode centering more on Yi On, it also features Lee Won Jong as her mentor. Woohoo! That guy should probably be a cop in every thing he does. Here’s episode 3: “Crashing Sirens.” SONG OF THE DAY “A Week”... More »

Hero: Episode 2

Onwards ho! Episode 2 is “Justice for the Helpless” – a fitting motto for our new vigilante hero. What’s nice about this drama is that it has both episodic cases, and a story arc that’s a little stronger than past OCN dramas. Instead of watching a band of characters with different pasts come together, and... More »

This. Is. Whoa. Hero is like the brain child of Vampire Prosecutor and Special Affairs Team TEN. And then it ups the ante with a dash of The Dark Knight. Oh, and props to a female cop who KNOWS how to kick ass. Here’s episode 1, “The Beginning.” Apologies for the length – episode one is like Ten, running... More »
