Punch: Episode 1
by | December 17, 2014 | 41 Comments
So intense. I guess we should’ve expected nothing less from the writer who brought us The Chaser and Empire of Gold, since both were exceptionally well-written character dramas—the former having more elements of action than the latter, and the latter having pretty much invented its own brand of excitement when the majority of its scenes...

Healer: Episode 4
by | December 16, 2014 | 44 Comments
Healer continues to hit all the right buttons for me—there’s fun, humor, style, cuteness, and a touch of longing. So far the show has done a great job balancing the parts we care about with the necessary evils—you know, the politicians, the media bigwigs, the news-related stuff—and being careful not to lose sight of entertainment...

Misaeng: Episode 17
by | December 16, 2014 | 78 Comments
The newbies seem to have finally hit their stride, and for at least one episode, there isn’t the sense of soul-crushing agony as we watch them go about their day. However, nothing is ever that easy at One International, and it’s the higher-ups who now struggle — particularly Chief Oh, as he not only discovers... More »

There’s hope yet for the boys as they determine to make an album no matter what it takes, but the mechanism for getting their dream may carry a price bigger than they’re willing to pay. What are they willing to do for their dream, and what will they be willing to give up? Especially when... More »

Healer: Episode 3
by | December 15, 2014 | 113 Comments
Today gives us a pleasantly funny, lighthearted episode with just a tinge of a melancholy undercurrent—an undercurrent I’m sure we’ll be seeing more of as we delve deeper into the mystery that binds together our cast, and the key dates in the past that mark their connection. I’m really enjoying the spirit of tongue-in-cheek fun... More »

The cabbage is ready and it’s finally harvest time! But all is not well, and Min-ki’s grand plan to solve all of his money problems may be in serious jeopardy. But that’s not even the worst of what’s about to befall the boys and their friends — they’re all in danger of losing everything they’ve... More »

Bad Guys: Episode 11 (Final)
by | December 14, 2014 | 36 Comments
It’s the final chapter for Team Crazy Dogs and a lengthy one at that—there’s so much information crammed into this 86-minute finale, it makes you wonder how much more story the show wanted to tell. Evidently then answer is, a lot, and it can certainly tell a lot more, if given the opportunity. We get... More »

Healer: Episode 2
by | December 13, 2014 | 55 Comments
In a compelling opening week, we get the first clues that the three central characters are all caught in the middle of a much bigger web. The hints of grand power-plays don’t matter today, though, as Young-shin and Moon-ho find. What matters is connecting with loved ones, and saving whomever you can, whatever it costs... More »

Pinocchio: Episode 10
by | December 12, 2014 | 163 Comments
It’s our heroine’s episode to shine, and she steps up admirably to the task—as a girlfriend, a daughter, and a reporter—without losing an ounce of herself and her integrity in the process. I sometimes wonder how this show manages to make an episode where all of the shit hits all of the fans in one... More »

Pinocchio: Episode 9

Well, there’s no more keeping everyone in opposite corners now. Worlds collide and secrets that we want buried just keep finding their way to the surface. Dal-po does his very best to plug a hole in the dam that’s about to burst, but it’s a last act of desperation, and he knows it deep down.... More »

Misaeng: Episode 16

The newbies are excited to finally submit their own proposals, but if you thought getting a project approved is a cause for celebration, think again: this is One International, and nothing is ever as simple as it seems. No one is thrilled with the office protocol, especially Chief Oh, who’s once again forced to make... More »
