Secret Door: Episode 10
by | October 21, 2014 | 8 Comments
This episode is all about parenthood, and in particular, the fraught territory of the father-son relationship. And yet it’s not even about Yeongjo and Sun’s increasingly conflicted relationship—at least, not directly. Everything’ll lead to that relationship in the end, but on the surface today’s plotlines are about other characters’ parental relationships, which then serve as... More »

Misaeng: Episode 1

Ooh, this is different and interesting. I wasn’t sure what to expect from our webtoon-turned-drama, but I did have my hopes up because of the hype around Misaeng (Incomplete Life) and its mania following. It’s probably not everyone’s cup of tea, but it’s definitely intriguing. As per usual, our first episode is jam-packed with introductions... More »

Oh, this is going to be fun! I had high hopes (but very little information) about Modern Farmer all the way up to the pilot episode, and I’m happy to say that it fulfills all of my expectations so far. The story is simple but ripe for wacky hijinks, the characters are interesting and nicely... More »

Secrets aren’t safe when everyone seems to be hiding around the corner, but the good news is that we (and Sung-gyum) finally learn who killed Sung-gyum’s father. We also learn who killed Young-mi and Hwang, although the jury is still out as to whether that’s not just another cover-up for the truth. As for as... More »
