“Persevere” is such a fitting theme in this episode, as we see our aspiring “artistars” try to take their first step into the music sphere. They don’t get very far before they run into their first obstacle, but even when they fall, they get right back up to try again. As usual, we get our... More »

There are high points and higher points in Punch’s best episode yet, though that’s almost redundant to say in a show where every week tops the one that came before it in sheer intensity. Along with our anti-hero’s relentless pursuit for justice, Kang-jae and Tae-joon finally get to lay everything bare, which is arguably one... More »

This is Se-gi’s episode. Snappy wardrobe improvement aside, things are getting seriouser and seriouser. We already knew there was pain at the root of Se-gi’s existence, but the catalyst of Ri-jin’s proximity and the recent events around Do-hyun bring the locked-up memories back to the surface.

How. Freaking. Adorable. Ho-gu’s Love (or Fool’s Love, named for our main character Ho-gu, a pun on “fool”) premiered on tvN today and is already off to a zippy start. I expected comic-book-style hilarity from the writer of Flower Boy Ramyun Shop, and I wasn’t disappointed—the show is chock full of quippy lines, crazy situations,... More »

This show makes me feel so many emoooootions, it’s great. It’s settled into its rhythm now—feel-good with a touch of melancholy—as the camaraderie really starts to come together, and it’s such fun to watch this diverse mix of personalities gel into a team, one where every character feels real and heartfelt. The drama isn’t quite... More »
