Love can be as painful as it can be wonderful, which all four of our boys discover in this episode. It’s not easy to juggle romance with cabbage farming — and it doesn’t help when the object of your affection pretty much thinks you’re a jerk, and she’s right. Turns out that farming isn’t all...

Agh, they’re so cuuuuute. Now that our backstory is in place, the second episode actually brings our leads together onscreen, and I’m happy to say that their dynamic is adorable—their bickering relationship is funny and heartfelt, and I really like both characters. It was impossible to tell from the first episode alone if the show... More »

Liar Game: Episode 8

This episode will get under your skin in the best of ways. Our hero and his archenemy have a battle of wits and wills, which simultaneously manages to be as nail-bitingly intense as it is deeply unsettling. And heartfelt. And fun. But still pretty unnerving. Do-young just seems to have that effect on people sometimes/all... More »

Despite being thrown into what seemed like a pit of quicksand leading straight to hell, our hero digs deep to solve the impossible problem, and to keep his soul while doing it.

SBS’s new Wednesday-Thursday drama Pinocchio—the latest project from the writer-director team behind I Hear Your Voice—premiered today, and in keeping with their style, the show is sweet and light with a touch of idealism and heartbreak. I’ve always liked this writer’s very earnest approach, even if it’s not the most complex, and I especially enjoy... More »

It’s a new week, which means a new round to entice our characters to sell their souls for sweet, sweet dollar bills.

Lots of satisfying moments in this episode, with the gang reunited and ready to make music together. With new goals come new challenges, and it’s Nae-il’s turn to buck up and challenge herself to grow, even if the process is uncomfortable. It’s gratifying to see the effort these characters put into trying to grow despite... More »

Modern Farmer: Episode 8

I’m pretty sure nobody in the entire town of Hadurok-ri makes it out of this episode uninjured, as they take on thieves, inanimate objects, and even Nature itself. But several citizens also manage to make forward strides in the relationship department — some of them risking life and limb to win the object of their... More »

Secret Door: Episode 15
by | November 10, 2014 | 17 Comments
There are some great moments between our prince and princess in this episode. (They touch! On purpose!) The rest, I could take or leave, since there’s a lot of setup and people shifting their alliances (and re-shifting them) before the other shoe drops, and that usually just makes me want to skip to the part...
