Three Musketeers: Episode 11

If there’s one perk to this whole once a week format, maybe it’s that we can watch the penultimate episode and get a whole seven days before having to face the… well, I won’t say it here. As far as this hour goes, it’s a gratifying watch for fans of Yoon-seo, Sohyeon, and Dal-hyang, even... More »

Ack, is it already time to start shattering the prince’s trust in his father? I know that on a basic level this is what the entire show is about, but is it asking for too much to delay the process for as long as humanly possible? What if we run out of tears—what will you... More »

Cantabile Tomorrow: Episode 5
by | October 27, 2014 | 90 Comments
It’s a day of emotional conflict for our heroine, which I think comes not a moment too soon. While I’ve been able to enjoy the role of Nae-il without feeling upset about the aspects of her character that disappoint me, I can see the reasons others feel dissatisfied, so it’s a welcome move for the...

This is the episode I’d been waiting for; I’d known that each of our convicts is strong in their own right, but as it turns out, they’re an even stronger team in the face of a common enemy. Not only does an illegal trade run deeper than any of our cops and criminals team could... More »

Hey guys, I’m just filling in for today, but I’m happy to pick up an episode of Misaeng, which is fast becoming one of my favorite shows of the year.

Liar Game: Episode 2
by | October 23, 2014 | 88 Comments
This show is so smartly paced it honestly blows me away, and this episode leaves us wanting for nothing. The unlikeliest of alliances forms between our jaded hero and naive heroine in an hour that intersperses edge-of-your-seat thrills and questionable moral choices with humor, heart, and one of the best villains ever to grace the...

Liar Game: Episode 1

I love it. I absolutely, positively love it. Liar Game premiered earlier this week on cable channel tvN, boasting an intriguing premise, solid production team, and a winning combination of cast members I wouldn’t have necessarily pegged for a perfect storm of success the minute they came together–but everything comes together with a surprising level...

Secret Door: Episode 10
by | October 21, 2014 | 44 Comments
This episode is all about parenthood, and in particular, the fraught territory of the father-son relationship. And yet it’s not even about Yeongjo and Sun’s increasingly conflicted relationship—at least, not directly. Everything’ll lead to that relationship in the end, but on the surface today’s plotlines are about other characters’ parental relationships, which then serve as... More »
