High School King of Savvy: Episode 4
by | June 29, 2014 | 86 Comments
Savvy just keeps getting better! In just one hour we see friendships form, rivalries evolve, loyalties realign, and more of the overarching mystery reveal itself. There are even some drunken shenanigans that of course we don’t condone… but are still pretty hilarious. Min-seok may be in over his head, but the more he is challenged... More »

The show continues on its zippy pace as both Chun-hee and Joon-hyun reluctantly realize how vital it is they work together to make Chun-hee a singer. But while Joon-hyun is focused on his bank account, Chun-hee is focused on her family. Hilarious hijinks ensue when Geon-woo and Soo-in finally meet, or at least hilarious for... More »

A New Leaf: Episode 15
by | June 27, 2014 | 22 Comments
Seok-ju’s team has assembled to fight the notorious Cha Yeong Woo Firm, but the funny thing is, he never asked for help, and none of them actually belong there: an angry and misplaced prosecutor, a loyal friend betraying his own firm, and a principled yet unrealistic intern. Somehow, they’ve all found their way to his... More »

Triangle: Episode 16
by | June 27, 2014 | 72 Comments
As much as it defies the laws of physics, Triangle just keeps getting better and better with each passing episode. For once it feels like we’re building up to a proper ending rather than simply counting down to the inevitable moment where the show will drag itself across the finish line just to put itself...

Joseon Gunman: Episode 2
by | June 26, 2014 | 107 Comments
More good stuff! I don’t know what appeals to me more, the action, the romance, the humor, the political intrigue, or the revenge looming on the horizon—but as far as I’m concerned that’s a good thing since it means Joseon Gunman is doing an effective job juggling all of its elements. Episode 2 had a... More »

You’re All Surrounded: Episode 14
by | June 26, 2014 | 102 Comments
This isn’t the most eventful episode, though what the show loses in plot development, it makes up for with relationship hijinks. Okay, very cute relationship hijinks—I’ll give you that. Our rookies learn a tough lesson about power and the limits of their position as cops, but the thing about good guys is that the setback... More »

Doctor Stranger: Episode 16
by | June 26, 2014 | 125 Comments
Now that the show keeps sitting its characters down to talk about what’s going on, I finally understand why they were holding out on giving explanations for so long: They didn’t have any. As much as I wish I was making that up, this episode jumps the scalpel and then some by giving old evidence... More »

Joseon Gunman: Episode 1
by | June 25, 2014 | 122 Comments
I wasn’t disappointed! And given how ridiculously excited I was for Joseon Gunman, surely that says a lot, doesn’t it? I had expectations, they were unreasonably high, and they were met. The show is similar to The Princess’s Man (the obvious comparison, given the PD connection), but I mean that only in the best of... More »

You’re All Surrounded: Episode 13
by | June 25, 2014 | 74 Comments
This is a heartwarming episode. Sometimes this show throws cases at us that don’t matter much in the scheme of things, even if there’s a relevant theme to be gleaned from them. But when our newest victim is Soo-sun’s mom, everyone has an emotional connection to the case of the day, and when the team... More »

It’s a solid first episode for KBS’s new Monday-Tuesday drama Trot Lovers. I’ve been very excited about this show for weeks now, mainly based on the casting, and I’m happy to say that the pilot episode doesn’t disappoint. The show manages to effectively set up a simple yet interesting premise while delivering laughs, shenanigans, and... More »

Triangle: Episode 15
by | June 24, 2014 | 75 Comments
It’s really Young-dal’s hour to shine in this episode after connecting the dots to the past, learning how that affects his present, and knowing what he must do to prepare for the future. Something must be said for a hero whose emotions and thoughts are laid out in front of him like an open hand... More »
