Everyone is laying their emotional cards out on the table as our love triangle gets fully underway. One of our leading men seems more than willing to admit he likes Chun-hee, while the other is still trying to figure out what feelings are actually for, and Chun-hee is in the enviable position of having to...

High School King of Savvy: Episode 9
by | July 15, 2014 | 239 Comments
The workplace romance hijinks are here! Our new couple’s romance pretty much spans the whole episode, making it an irresistibly adorable watch. Our leads really outdo themselves with their budding romance, but it’s a pretty accurate representation of being head over heels for someone. Through some hilarious and mortifying hijinks, we’re given a confirmation of... More »

High School: Love On: Episode 1
by | July 14, 2014 | 87 Comments
What an intriguing little show. High School: Love On feels like a curious experiment for KBS, not just with its quirky genre bent but also format. Truth be told, I was expecting this show to be either a mess or to fall by the wayside entirely because for months, KBS kept changing its mind about... More »

Chun-hee begins her ascent as a popular and beloved trot singer, while Soo-in looks into the face of what her future may be: namely, becoming as conniving as her mother in order to survive.

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.

High School King of Savvy: Episode 8

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 | 163 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 »
