More threats are issued, more theoretical wars are waged, and more scenes are devoted to following not-so-vital pieces of information around than you would’ve ever thought possible. I honestly wish I had better news as we head toward finale week, but I’ve actually become increasingly convinced that Triangle is less about the reunion of its... More »

Secrets are made, kept, and also discovered—and not a moment too soon, because often what it takes to keep the tension in a plot going strong isn’t the continued stressor of preserving the secret, but blowing it wide open and dealing with the fallout. It’s much more interesting to explore the “What next?” conundrum than... More »

As more baddies are brought to light and more people on Young-dal’s side are threatened, Young-dal finds it increasingly harder to keep his anger in check. Now if you’re thinking that tidbit would prompt the evil chaebols to get hustlin’ on their ever-present-but-not-really-urgent threat... More »

The big reveal is finally here. It’s time for Soo-young to face the truth and decide what’s more important for her. Family? Love? Employment?

I love it. Marriage Not Dating is light, airy, and funny while also delivering a nice healthy dose of heart and depth. We’re starting to get glimpses into characters’ pasts that indicate that not everything is cuteness and romance in these people’s lives, and I think the show is setting a nice balance between hilarious...
