Fated To Love You: Episode 4
by | July 11, 2014 | 115 Comments
Our unintentional couple faces a life-changing decision that takes them (and us) for one hell of a ride in a densely packed hour filled with so much heart it’s bursting at the seams. But never fear—even with all the heavy issues at play, we haven’t yet tripped and stumbled into a melodrama. One of Fated... More »

High School King of Savvy: Episode 8
by | July 11, 2014 | 170 Comments
Be warned, there are a lot of feelings this episode. Soo-young struggles to put aside one director while coming to terms with the affection of the second, while Min-seok tries to keep his emotions bottled up to avoid becoming a burden to the woman he likes. His coping mechanisms don’t help him cope, as neither... More »

Triangle: Episode 20
by | July 11, 2014 | 43 Comments
For a show that certainly knows how to take things slow and easy sometimes, it still knows how to deliver an hour of small victories, heartwarming teamwork, and shattering reveals. Most of all, I appreciate how Triangle surprises us with character moments which subvert conventional drama tropes while also remembering that episodic payoffs are important.... More »

You’re All Surrounded: Episode 18
by | July 10, 2014 | 106 Comments
Now that’s more like it. This episode kicks it up a notch with speedy results and hefty emotional payoff, after weeks spent keeping us on ice. Our poor guppy gets hit with a tsunami of truth, and if he weren’t surrounded by such good friends, I’d worry that he might drown. Painful as it is,... More »

Joseon Gunman: Episode 6
by | July 10, 2014 | 101 Comments
If he’s telling me to come and get it, I can most certainly oblige. Yes, please, and thank you. The identity game is in full swing, with pretty much everybody questioning the new guy’s resemblance to the old guy, even as they know in their heads that it’s pretty much impossible for them to be...

Doctor Stranger: Episode 20 (Final)
by | July 10, 2014 | 162 Comments
What a strange finale indeed. We get one half filled to the brim with sheer ridiculousness, while the other serves as an epilogue chronicling the bitter pill that is Doctor Stranger as it circles the drain of eternity. Looking back now, I’m becoming more and more convinced that Myungwoo was never a hospital at all—it... More »

Fated To Love You: Episode 3
by | July 10, 2014 | 94 Comments
Yeah, I’d look like that if I just got some unexpected life-changing news, too. Humorous and heart-tugging, this show gets more adorable by the minute. The hour goes by pretty quick when you’ve got a heroine trying to figure out how one night turned her world upside down, and a hero who doesn’t even know... More »

Joseon Gunman: Episode 5
by | July 9, 2014 | 54 Comments
Gah, nobody beats Lee Jun-ki for expressive eyes. The painnnn, you can just feel it through his gaze. This is an episode that covers a fair bit of setup ground, because we’re starting anew as our hero puts his revenge mission into motion. I’m thankful that the show has done such a compelling job of... More »

You’re All Surrounded: Episode 17
by | July 9, 2014 | 57 Comments
There are big revelations for our hero, but by and large it’s an episode spent circling the wagons, which isn’t terribly exciting since we’re chomping at the bit for results, not strategizing sessions. Obviously we can’t get there until our characters have caught up to the truth, but could we maybe get there an eensy... More »

The plot gets fully underway as battle lines are drawn at Shine Star, with employees and trainees alike taking sides between Chun-hee and Soo-in. Chun-hee begins to realize that music is important to her beyond making money, and that family is not limited to those with whom you share a genetic bond. And our hero... More »

Triangle: Episode 19
by | July 8, 2014 | 65 Comments
For an episode following a rather big revelation, we’re rewarded with more planning and scheming in this hour. To Young-dal’s credit, it’s a pretty smart plan because it requires knowing what makes the other person tick and what pressure points will evoke the kind of reaction our hero wants. It also requires a lot of... More »
