Bad Guys: Episode 11 (Final)
by | December 14, 2014 | 54 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 »

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.

Healer: Episode 1
by | December 8, 2014 | 82 Comments
We’re off to a brisk start with Healer, which I was looking forward to mostly for the writer (Song Ji-nah of Sandglass, Legend, Story of a Man) and secondarily for the cast (though a cast is never enough on its own to entice me). I was most curious to see what the tone would actually... More »

Misaeng: Episode 15
by | December 8, 2014 | 169 Comments
The big theme of the day is around acknowledgement, whether it be from colleagues, bosses, or family. It’s not something that comes easily, as it takes time and an empathic understanding of a person to acknowledge their worth. But the result is rewarding because in a world where there are so many people ready to... More »

That doesn’t look like a bloody good time, does it? This is the episode where things we’ve come to known start to unravel at our feet. Not only do our characters start to suspect the truth that they’ve told, but I’m starting to doubt some of the things we’ve seen in past episodes. Bad Guys... More »

Valid Love: Episode 1

How strange and interesting. Valid Love, the long awaited comeback project for the writer of the impossible-not-to-love classic My Name Is Kim Sam-soon, premiered on cable network tvN earlier this week, and the result may leave you as cautiously optimistic as you are vividly unsettled. Let’s just hope the show will continue to have more... More »
