Doctor Stranger: Episode 18
by | July 4, 2014 | 63 Comments
Our hero gets railroaded into doing nothing but reacting this hour as the only person he could cling to with any sense of assurance takes some time away from her main job of keeping secrets in order to multitask—now she gets to keep secrets and attempt to scrape Hoon off like an extra-clingy barnacle. When... More »

One kidnapping throws everything and everyone in a tizzy this hour, forcing our rivals in love (and brothers) to work together—however briefly—to secure her release.

We’re here! With the requisite backdrop set and the conflict established, we now get to the meat of the present-day story, and I’m just about hopping in anticipation to see where we go from here.

Joseon Gunman: Episode 3
by | July 2, 2014 | 115 Comments
Joseon Gunman continues to deliver just what I want. That’s an interesting thing because you would think that getting exactly what you wish for could be something of a letdown when you know what’s going to happen—we’re still establishing conflicts and heading toward revenge motivation. But in the way that a good romantic comedy can... More »

You’re All Surrounded: Episode 15
by | July 2, 2014 | 70 Comments
Our not-a-couple spends the entire episode trying desperately to hide their embarrassment and not let their feelings show, which of course makes said fluttery feelings blatantly obvious to the rest of the universe (and to us, hee). It’s an amusing hour filled with denials, company-mandated skinship, and a surprise sleepover that makes my day.  ... More »

Trot Lovers: Episode 3
by | July 2, 2014 | 48 Comments
This episode delivers a lot of character growth as our leads each discover their personal low points, and must decide how far they’re willing to sink for family and/or success. It’s a necessary step for both Chun-hee and Joon-hyun so that they can bounce back and form an amazing trot comeback team, but that doesn’t... More »
