Healer: Episode 6

Adorable. I feel like a giddy teenage girl watching this show, in all the best ways (squee!) minus the worst ways (you know, the mean girls and crushing insecurities and parents who just don’t get you), which makes it pretty much awesomely entertaining. I thought we’d had our story well in place, but we get... More »

I didn’t expect to love any show for a while, and not this show specifically, but I TOTALLY LOVE THIS SHOW. What a great episode for all of the things that make this show so enjoyable—the action, the intrigue, the hilarious comic relief, the budding romance, and relationship development. What’s extra exciting for me is... More »

Finale week is upon us, and it’s an emotional one. I dare you to try going through this episode without tearing up once, because you may just not be human if you can do so. This is Chief Oh’s episode all around, as he struggles yet again to find the balance between his values and... More »

Modern Farmer: Episode 19

It’s time for our boys to face some hard truths, about both the past and the present, and the truth is every bit as bad as I feared (actually, it’s worse). But when you’re down, there’s only one way to go and that’s up, and sometimes the best things in life happen when you don’t... More »

Punch: Episode 2

Man, this show is intense. Never has the quote “better to reign in Hell than to serve in Heaven” been so apt than for Punch, a legal thriller about a prosecutor whose ambition dictates practically everything he does. His fiery resolve is both fascinating and rage-inducing to watch in the most intriguing of ways—Jung-hwan thinks... More »

Pinocchio: Episode 12

Pain paaain go away, come again another day! Turns out yesterday’s episode wasn’t the worst of the heartbreak, not by a long shot. Our hero decides that he doesn’t deserve to be happy anymore and seems determined to spread the pain around while he’s at it. This plan is good for nobody, I want to... More »

Sales Team 3 throws its heart and soul into the executive director’s China project, but when it starts to feel like something’s not quite right about the deal, they wonder if they should continue. Failure could mean the end of Sales Team 3, as well as the end of Geu-rae’s career at One International, and... More »

I wish I could tell you that learning the truth meant that everyone got a happy fluffy holiday reunion, but that would be a big fat lie. It’s time for our hero to face the music about everything he’s been dreading and denying about his past, even if it means waking up from the dream... More »

Punch: Episode 1

So intense. I guess we should’ve expected nothing less from the writer who brought us The Chaser and Empire of Gold, since both were exceptionally well-written character dramas—the former having more elements of action than the latter, and the latter having pretty much invented its own brand of excitement when the majority of its scenes...

Healer: Episode 4
by | December 16, 2014 | 125 Comments
Healer continues to hit all the right buttons for me—there’s fun, humor, style, cuteness, and a touch of longing. So far the show has done a great job balancing the parts we care about with the necessary evils—you know, the politicians, the media bigwigs, the news-related stuff—and being careful not to lose sight of entertainment...
