Triangle: Episode 14
by | June 20, 2014 | 80 Comments
Triangle may not be the flashiest show to assault your optic stems week to week, but there’s something to be said for the way it keeps building upon itself to become more than we expected, deeper than what we hoped for, and achingly human despite itself. Watching Young-dal forge a path down memory lane only... More »

You’re All Surrounded: Episode 12
by | June 19, 2014 | 74 Comments
The fun returns as Dae-gu closes a painful chapter of his life (or so he thinks) and starts to open himself up, just a little, to the people around him. Evil is still afoot in the realm of the rich and powerful, but now that Dae-gu has people on his side to laugh and cry... More »

Doctor Stranger: Episode 14
by | June 19, 2014 | 89 Comments
If you had a hope in your head and a song in your heart that things would get better if only we knew what the big overarching plan was—you know, the one governing the surgical competition of the ages, the very same one responsible for the running the minutiae of a hospital no sane person... More »

You’re All Surrounded: Episode 11
by | June 18, 2014 | 65 Comments
Yay, our hero’s back, his real-life injury gets written into the story in a seamless way (complete with hospital rest), and the secret identity cat finally gets let out of the bag. Not a moment too soon, either, because that cat was getting restless. Or was that me? Once in a while, it’s nice to... More »

High School King of Savvy: Episode 2
by | June 18, 2014 | 94 Comments
Love it. Savvy is doing some great things with its likable and wacky characters, and I’m already invested. The hijinks begin as we get our first look into the double life that Min-seok has agreed to lead. Thankfully, he seems to adapt pretty well because he’s got just the right amount of pizzazz and (over)confidence... More »

Triangle: Episode 13
by | June 17, 2014 | 69 Comments
What poor, unfortunate souls our three Jang brothers are. Two brothers fight over the affections of one girl while the oldest gets a glimpse into how dark he can get if he allows it. On the upside, there are sweet moments in our budding romance, and I can’t get enough of watching the once-playboy stammer... More »

Doctor Stranger: Episode 13
by | June 17, 2014 | 97 Comments
Our doctors put their day jobs on the backburner while they sort out their own feelings and ask intake questions about each other’s lives. The revenge-seeking, metaphor-loving doc remains mostly docile in this hour, opting to spend his time building a potential bromance with his former rival and learning things like what his favorite food...

High School King of Savvy: Episode 1
by | June 16, 2014 | 105 Comments
Score another one for tvN. No, I haven’t been a fan of every single show they’ve produced, but they certainly do have a high track record of producing well-crafted dramas, particularly in this Monday-Tuesday rom-com slot. High School King of Savvy managed a deft intro to its slick double-identity comedy plot, but it also managed... More »

You can try to get out… but they just keep pulling you back in! That’s the problem that confronts Seok-ju this episode, as he gets his fiancée out on bail and finally walks away from CEO Cha’s poisonous clutches, only to realize that living comfortably isn’t easy once you’ve opened your eyes to the injustice...

Gap-dong: Episode 18
by | June 14, 2014 | 59 Comments
Was it me, or was this episode incomprehensible? I’m still trying to figure out whether it was just a little too cryptic for its own good, or if it was wholly off its rocker. When I’m confused about a drama, I try not to leap to the “this show made no sense” conclusion if I’m... More »

Witch’s Romance: Episode 16 (Final)

It’s time to say good-bye to the adorable Dong-ha and the delightful Ji-yeon — but I’m not ready! Can’t we keep them around just a little longer? Thank goodness, then, the final episode is brimming with cute ‘n’ fluffy moments of our favorite couple getting to actually fully enjoy being a couple. Of course, there... More »
