Spy: Episode 16 (Final)
by | March 10, 2015 | 144 Comments
If Spy was ever about more than the pursuit of a flimsy piece of hardware holding the secret to immeasurable wealth, you might find yourself hard-pressed to remember that in a finale that revolves solely around the acquisition and eventual trade of The One Hard Drive. I wish I could say I’d miss that thing... More »

Persevere, Gu Hae-ra: Episode 9
by | March 9, 2015 | 36 Comments
It’s me again, filling in to recap an extra-meta-tastic episode of Persevere, Gu Hae-ra, which is chock-full of sly winks at dramaland and hilarious references to behind-the-scenes shenanigans. (If you follow the updates here on the crazy workings of drama productions, it should be extra-fun to recognize which shows they’re poking fun at.) It’s also... More »

This was an episode of two decided halves: One to say goodbye to the past, and the other to usher in the future (and anyone else who wants to come along for that ride…). The last of the secrets are spilled, and Se-gi proves not only that he dresses better than Do-hyun, but that both... More »

Hong-do is becoming lost in her own mind, and despite all the friends who care about her, nothing is getting through to her. Yi-seok at least can function, though he’s an empty shell of the man he was when he had someone to love. Something needs to happen to get the two of them together,... More »

Last week’s revelation threw into question everything Do-hyun thought he knew about his identity—and for someone plagued by multiple personalities, that’s a tremendous loss.

Hyde, Jekyll, Me: Episode 14
by | March 5, 2015 | 65 Comments
Oh I like this episode. There’s payoff in the central conflict, and more time spent with our three main characters and the developing romance. Er, romances. The jury’s still out on whether Hana is dating two guys or one, but the closer she gets to both of them, the more complicated it all becomes. If... More »

Ho-gu’s Love: Episode 8
by | March 5, 2015 | 51 Comments
We’re halfway through the show, and our characters are finally beginning to crack around the edges. Well, if they even have edges to begin with — I’m pretty sure Ho-gu is just one giant ball of fluff. That’s probably a good thing, because it’s hard to get too annoyed with a squishy puppy even when... More »

Persevere, Gu Hae-ra: Episode 8
by | March 3, 2015 | 24 Comments
We’ve got an episode rich with emotional conflict, belated development, and some great tunes. We’re reminded that fate isn’t always the magic hand, the larger force, or something that repeatedly comes back around. What matters is how and when you act on that fateful encounter, and all our characters experience some aspect of that conflict... More »

We’ve come a long way, and it’s Hong-do’s turn to be the strong one while Yi-seok falls apart. As his family does their best to blame everyone but themselves for his brother’s death, Yi-seok only has one person he truly blames, and that’s himself. The question is whether he can forgive himself in time to... More »
