A carefully laid trap is sprung this episode, giving our good(-ish) guys a much-needed boost to continue fighting the good(-ish) fight. It’s all gray areas when it comes to these characters, and trying to figure out which shade of grey they represent is about as useless an endeavor as nailing jello to a tree. With... More »

SBS’s new Wednesday-Thursday series Hyde, Jekyll, Me got off to a good start today, with solid character introductions, a mystery, and a touch of whimsy. As expected, it’s the Hyun Bin Show, but he doesn’t disappoint, managing to be funny, grumpy, assy, and swoony all in one episode. I’m pretty happy with this drama’s presentation... More »

This show has gone from “slow and a bit dragging” to “hilarious yet heart-tugging” in the space of one short week, and I’m loving every second of it. It’s been a long time since I laughed this hard, and the humor is so offbeat and quirky that I’m constantly taken by surprise. But that’s not... More »

Big movements ahead! As fun as it was to watch Bong-sookie being jealous of himself, it’s time for life to step it up and throw bigger frustrations in his path, which are equal parts entertaining and angst-inducing. Plus, with the outing of some truths come new unanswered questions, throwing our characters off-balance as they try... More »

But there’s no shortage of new news, as hints pile up around the locked room that is everyone’s hidden past.

Now that the premise is all set up and the characters introduced, the show is starting to settle into a cute, quirky groove that I quite like.

More of the general picture is revealed, but the secrets of the past are still hidden from us, as they are from Do-hyun. Hints of Do-hyun’s true strength... More »
