Liar Game: Episode 4

To trust or not to trust, that is the question. For a show that’s as much about the fallibility of man as it is about the vampiric bloodsuckers who capitalize on our suffering, there’s a surprising amount of human connection to be found. Even in a setting where you wouldn’t think trust and cooperation could... More »

Time for the next round, which packs a wallop even if it seems more tame than what our heroic duo endured last week, at least on paper. But if this episode is any indicator, then each week will likely focus on a different round of the game, which means there’s endless opportunities for fun and... More »

It’s a great episode with big moments of heart from everyone — our once cold hero, our maturing heroine, and even the crazy maestro with a hidden agenda. The introduction of a new character also shakes up the story in a really fun way, by giving our hero a run for his money when it... More »

If there’s one perk to this whole once a week format, maybe it’s that we can watch the penultimate episode and get a whole seven days before having to face the… well, I won’t say it here. As far as this hour goes, it’s a gratifying watch for fans of Yoon-seo, Sohyeon, and Dal-hyang, even... More »

Ack, is it already time to start shattering the prince’s trust in his father? I know that on a basic level this is what the entire show is about, but is it asking for too much to delay the process for as long as humanly possible? What if we run out of tears—what will you... More »

It’s a day of emotional conflict for our heroine, which I think comes not a moment too soon. While I’ve been able to enjoy the role of Nae-il without feeling upset about the aspects of her character that disappoint me, I can see the reasons others feel dissatisfied, so it’s a welcome move for the...
