Witch’s Romance: Episode 1
by | April 17, 2014 | 93 Comments
Ushering us into a new season of spring flings, Witch’s Romance premiered on tvN this week. The lighthearted workplace rom-com is a remake of the hit 2009 Taiwanese drama My Queen, and its wacky, fun-loving (and sometimes sultry) tone just might be the ticket to pull us out of hibernation. What better way is there... More »

God’s Gift – 14 Days: Episode 14
by | April 16, 2014 | 138 Comments
The good, the bad, and the shady are messing with our heads with false leads dropping left and right, but we’ve finally got a good sense of who’s on what side. All the right questions are asked, shedding some light on our original timeline and giving us that small silver lining we need. But it’s... More »

God’s Gift – 14 Days: Episode 13
by | April 14, 2014 | 89 Comments
This show’s modus operandi seems to be: take your worst nightmare, multiply that by a thousand, set it on fire, poke it and make it angry, and then turn off the lights so that it has the advantage in a fight. Just when we think our good guys catch a break, we find out that... More »

Now that Jung-woo has stopped denying his feelings, he’s doing his best to make up for lost time. Our jealous CEO makes some big strides this episode, learning that sometimes the best way to show someone you care is to give them some room. But just as it seems that our main leads might be...

Three Days: Episode 12
by | April 13, 2014 | 50 Comments
The drama gods must have been smiling on me this week. How else can you explain two dynamite episodes of Three Days back-to-back? With a little less mystery and lot more focus on character, Thursday’s episode seems to have gotten us a bit closer to the recipe for a perfect Three Days.   EPISODE 12... More »

Full Sun: Episode 16 (Final)
by | April 13, 2014 | 31 Comments
What a ride Full Sun has been over the past eight weeks, and now that we’re at the finish, I would say that I don’t regret the choice for a moment. Sure there was pain (and I mean lots of pain) and the show sought to wring tears out of me to the bitter end,... More »

Sly and Single Again: Episode 13
by | April 13, 2014 | 55 Comments
Jung-woo continues to pull out all the stops to convince Ae-ra how much he likes her, and there’s a good chance that all his cute (and adorably clumsy!) attempts at affection might actually be working. Even so, Ae-ra continues to rebuff him — but not as much as she rebuffs poor Seung-hyun, who seems to... More »

Gap-dong: Episode 2
by | April 12, 2014 | 39 Comments
Gap-dong turned in another solid episode, full of shady characters and tension between its good-guy protagonists—although I’m a little wary of calling our assy chief detective Chul-gon a full-on protagonist just yet. With our main characters’ storylines established, this episode gave us a chance to see more of the secondary characters, namely the psycho-on-the-rise Tae-oh,... More »

Full Sun: Episode 15
by | April 12, 2014 | 22 Comments
I’m back for Full Sun’s finale week (albeit late), and this show doesn’t let up in the slightest even after everyone knows the truth. In fact, that should give us more reason to be on our toes and maybe even a little scared, especially when our hero is armed and at large. And while he’s... More »

Gap-dong: Episode 1
by | April 11, 2014 | 65 Comments
I’m up to my neck in premieres! Today is Gap-dong’s turn, and we get a jam-packed hour of tension and mystery. Or rather, seventy minutes of it, since tvN cannot for the life of it exercise restraint or appreciate the beauty of a tight edit. (Seriously, I do tend to really enjoy tvN’s programming but...

Golden Cross: Episode 1
by | April 10, 2014 | 40 Comments
Here was my thought process in the moments before watching Golden Cross’ premiere episode: If you’re bad, it would be a relief. Then I don’t have to worry about having to recap you. Maybe you’ll be bad. You could be bad. Sure your writer wrote Gaksital which I loved, but that was a historical action... More »
