Plus Nine Boys: Episode 3
by | September 6, 2014 | 60 Comments
This show continues to be an understated slice-of-life tale that focuses on very relatable foibles, like getting your hopes up way too soon over the slightest possibility at love, or teasing the girl you have a crush on because it’s easier than letting her see your bleeding heart. Now that the premise has been set... More »

My Secret Hotel: Episode 6
by | September 6, 2014 | 52 Comments
The mystery as it stands is still being constructed: Alibis, motives, alliances and relationships between characters shift and change, keeping the central mystery of Hwang’s death as mysterious as ever. The focus of this hour skewed almost entirely to the romance, with about 6.5% to the mystery. I actually have no complaints; even though it’s... More »

by | September 6, 2014 | 309 Comments
The day we dreaded since we first fell in love is finally upon us, which means that it’s time to say goodbye to the zany and whimsical side of Fated To Love You, while conveniently shelving the angsty side somewhere easily forgotten. At least this isn’t one of those endings that forgets to be an... More »

It’s the calm before the storm as our characters try to process the truth that our hero isn’t doing as well as he’s been letting on. Everyone should be so lucky to have as many people who care for them as Jae-yeol does, even if he isn’t aware of the danger he is to them... More »

The human mind does strange things with memory. We remember what, when, and how we loved, yet we rarely remember the pain. The good memories fill us with nostalgia, but the painful ones move us forward. It’s through the convenience of forgetting the painful memories that Tae-ha finds himself stuck in the past. But as...

There’s plenty of cute to go around as Gun and Mi-young work furiously to convince the right parties that they belong together, come what may. Gun also goes on a side quest regarding his father and the words of wisdom he left behind, which sure would’ve done a whole lot more good during that three... More »

Joseon Gunman: Episode 22 (Final)
by | September 4, 2014 | 50 Comments
Didja think yesterday mostly wrapped up the story, and today’s finale episode would merely be an epilogue? Well you’d be wrong, given how jam-packed with plot this hour is, providing us with a number of twists, turns, and noble sacrifices before we ultimately arrive at our conclusion. It feels good to reach the end of... More »

Plus Nine Boys: Episode 2

Plus Nine Boys is just full of sweetness and heart, and I’m loving every minute of it. The boys all know the shape of their “plus nine” curse now and they each respond in different ways, giving us a bit more insight into the kind of men they are. I’m enjoying watching all four of... More »

But can the past be put aside in order for Sang-hyo to find a way to save the reputation of The Secret Hotel — and her job? Sung-gyum continues to find out all he... More »

Joseon Gunman: Episode 21
by | September 3, 2014 | 21 Comments
It looks like finale week just may give us a strong finish to Joseon Gunman, which I’d worried about because I found last week’s episodes to be a bit plodding. It may be a finale tinged with bittersweetness, but that’s something I embrace; it’s not about winning everything and suffering nothing, but finding a way... More »

Discovery of Romance: Episode 5

When, if ever, is it okay to lie to someone to protect them? Do secrets do more harm than good, or are secrets something that can save someone from hurt? This episode focuses on whether or not it’s ever acceptable to lie in order to shield someone from being hurt, or if total honesty is... More »
