Cantabile Tomorrow: Episode 14

Aw, this is my favorite episode yet. It made me cry, and it also made me laugh so hard I may have snorted food down the wrong pipe. (The pain was totally worth it.) There’s a thread of bittersweetness and wistfulness that made the episode feel particularly poignant, with characters confronting obstacles, accepting certain truths,... More »

Cantabile Tomorrow: Episode 13
by | November 24, 2014 | 85 Comments
Sometimes I wonder whether the show would be served by upping the conflict and angst quotient, but then cuteness like this reminds me that entertainment doesn’t always necessitate a dramatic push-pull movement, and that minor triumphs can be just as satisfying to watch as the climactic, grandiose ones. It is probably safe to say that... More »

It’s about time that the truth reared its ugly head, as this hour teaches us mostly everything about Jung-moon that we’d been dying to know.

What a solid and stylish premiere for King’s Face, KBS’s latest addition to the sparse Wednesday-Thursday lineup. With solid directing and an intriguing setup based on the idea that you can judge a book by its cover, there’s no shortage of conflict to mine here and plenty of promise for the future. After all, what... More »

Pinocchio: Episode 4

Okay, I seriously love this episode. I swear it’s not even because our hero finally gets a makeover (even though that’s worth a round of applause in and of itself—fare thee well, Mop of Shame!), but because the family stuff hits all the right chords. It’s an episode about fathers, and the kind of love... More »

Liar Game: Episode 10
by | November 20, 2014 | 249 Comments
This is a really dense episode, packed with character revelations and plot twists that are actually revelatory and truthfully twisty, and even though it calls for every ounce of attention you can dedicate to it, it doesn’t fail to reward you for time well spent. So much happens this hour that it’s near impossible to... More »
