My Secret Hotel: Episode 14
by | October 11, 2014 | 41 Comments
After a frustrating previous week, this satisfying episode delivers some decisive moments for several characters, both on the mystery front and (mostly) the romance, as well as bringing in, perhaps, the final key figure for the former. It turns out that madcap and nonsensical plans have their uses, and sometimes it only takes small moments... More »

Plus Nine Boys: Episode 13
by | October 10, 2014 | 34 Comments
It’s an entire episode built around the Peterpan Complex song “Swallow My Feelings” (posted below), about the things that our boys have to endure because they love that one special girl. The song goes: “Because I love you I have a hard time / Because I love you I hurt / Because I love you... More »

Discovery of Romance: Episode 16 (Final)
by | October 10, 2014 | 73 Comments
The finale is one dedicated to Yeo-reum, and fittingly so. She ties up all the loose ends of coincidence, fate, loyalty, and love to discover what romance means to her. The long road with twisty detours and roundabout paths has finally come to an end. And although the end is no big surprise, we’re given... More »

My Secret Hotel: Episode 13
by | October 9, 2014 | 34 Comments
If you were hoping the show would make some progress in answering all the questions we’ve been wondering now for weeks (such as, who’s the killer? Who does Sang-hyo really love? Why don’t Hae-young and Sung-gyum act their age?), you’ll be disappointed. The show nearly goes back to square one in terms of plot, but... More »

Discovery of Romance: Episode 15
by | October 8, 2014 | 58 Comments
All of the secrets are out in the open and everyone has to get real with themselves, and admit their own responsibility in how things have all turned to shambles. It’s a hard episode to watch, because realizing that you’re (at least partly) to blame is never an easy thing to do. But hopefully Tae-ha,... More »

Secret Door: Episode 6
by | October 7, 2014 | 29 Comments
The murder plot thickens, and our very tiny team of good guys gets smart about the “secret” part of this secret investigation. If only we could also keep the net of baddies from closing in around them though, because at some point you have to ask how investigating the facts of past murders can compete... More »

Three Musketeers: Episode 8
by | October 7, 2014 | 126 Comments
This episode isn’t even about Dal-hyang, yet he nabs the best spot in the house for being the light at the end of the tangled mess that is Sohyeon’s love life. (I know, right?) The two women involved in the crown prince’s affairs find themselves on completely opposite ends of the spectrum against their own... More »

Secret Door: Episode 5
by | October 6, 2014 | 12 Comments
A rich episode for character development, and it’s surprisingly full of moments of sincerity in a world that’s populated by so many glib, false-speaking snakes. We have this in multiple relationships, but most significantly in our central, most heart-tugging one between the king and the prince. The problem with them, though, isn’t necessarily whether these... More »

Bad Guys: Episode 1
by | October 6, 2014 | 104 Comments
Seriously badass. I’d been hoping that cable network OCN’s newest crime thriller Bad Guys would satisfy my thirst for some gritty suspense and my hunger for some action-packed sequences—suffice it to say that it does, and then some. Not only does this show deliver on the slick and edgy directing style we’ve come to expect... More »

My Secret Hotel: Episode 12
by | October 4, 2014 | 64 Comments
It’s got to be asked: With a week to play with, does Hae-young have a plan, or is his grand plan to wing it? I sincerely hope he’s got more game than he’s shown so far, because in every previous encounter, he’s come off worse even though the chances are always tipped in his favor.... More »
