Fated To Love You: Episode 16
by | August 21, 2014 | 211 Comments
Good intentions can be just as poisonous as bad ones, as our hero maybe kinda sorta hasn’t come to realize just yet. But for as much as they interact both directly and indirectly, Gun and Mi-young are like two ships passing in the night when it comes to revealing their true feelings—although I’d put most...

Joseon Gunman: Episode 18
by | August 21, 2014 | 26 Comments
The game of one-upsmanship intensifies with both sides gaining some and losing some. And while Choi Won-shin has the bounce-back of a rubberized demonic energizer bunny, it’s pretty satisfying to watch him deal with multiple setbacks at the hands of our hero. The tension is ratcheting up with every encounter, and you can certainly feel... More »

My Secret Hotel: Episode 1
by | August 21, 2014 | 82 Comments
tvN kicks off their “killing romance” with My Secret Hotel, and there’s definitely plenty of secrets to go around for everyone: dead bodies falling from the sky; past lovers making unexpected appearances; assistant managers who continually go missing; and, of course, “what happens in Vegas, stays in Vegas.” What’s not a secret are the delightful...

Discovery of Romance: Episode 2
by | August 21, 2014 | 87 Comments
Another quality rom-com headed your way! I’m happy to say that we’ve got some crackling chemistry and some fun-filled times to keep us company. Discovery of Romance takes a fresh spin on the “exes meet again” storyline and has some great potential with its formatting, which definitely stood out in this episode. I’m already in... More »

Fated To Love You: Episode 15
by | August 20, 2014 | 116 Comments
Gun will need to be quite the sleuth if he doesn’t want anyone else catching onto the idea about his lingering feelings for the woman he once sent away. Now that he’s clued into the notion that Mi-young is no longer the same woman who fell in love with him three years ago, Gun is... More »

Joseon Gunman: Episode 17
by | August 20, 2014 | 57 Comments
There’s a Korean saying that suits practically every hero and heroine known to dramaland, which is mountain after mountain. As in, you exert all this energy into climbing one huge mountain of pain and effort, only to find at its peak that there’s a whole freaking other mountain hiding behind it. And before you collapse...

Discovery of Romance: Episode 1
by | August 20, 2014 | 113 Comments
So fun! The premiere episode of Discovery of Romance really delivers, in just about every area you want a good rom-com to deliver: great leads with fantastic chemistry, hilarious best friends and witty banter, and no small amount of kissing and skinship (oh, and abs. Lots of abs). If the show keeps going the way... More »

Three Musketeers: Episode 1
by | August 18, 2014 | 132 Comments
Great summer fun! Three Musketeers kicked off its first episode (and first season, of three planned) yesterday, and I’m hooked already: The show has a swift storytelling style, a delightfully cheeky sense of humor (which often dips into the refreshingly deadpan), and a set of characters with heart. And you know, despite my misgivings about... More »

Marriage Not Dating: Episode 14
by | August 17, 2014 | 156 Comments
It’s an episode full of frustration for poor Ki-tae, both emotionally and physically, as he learns about life as the boyfriend of a successful entrepreneur. He and Jang-mi both learn a little about how important it is to communicate honestly, and I can only say thank goodness, it’s about time. Because when your girlfriend’s ex... More »

It’s Okay, It’s Love: Episode 8
by | August 16, 2014 | 157 Comments
The fixation on our heroine’s reluctance toward physical intimacy goes into overdrive in an hour with as much of a one-track mind as its straight-shooting hero. I guess it won’t come as that much of a surprise when the weeks leading up to this have dedicated a fair amount of energy to the idea of... More »

Trot Lovers: Episode 16 (Final)
by | August 16, 2014 | 43 Comments
Trot Lovers wraps up its run with a finale that gives me everything I’ve ever wanted from this show, as it addresses the big question of “does everyone live happily ever after?” Particularly, are the sins of the Worst Parents Ever to be passed down to the children? Or is it possible to break free... More »
