I’m helping to play catch-up on this show, which I was happy to do because Persevere, Gu Hae-ra has totally won me over. It’s interesting how this show has some very emotionally heavy moments, then turns around and makes me bust a gut laughing with its comedy. I appreciate the interplay, because a full-on melo...

Yay, I’m happy to report that yesterday’s episode wasn’t a fluke—it may have taken two weeks for Hyde, Jekyll, Me to find its rom-com center, but now that our hero has softened, the romantic development is actually coming along. It’s not that I didn’t have faith that Seo-jin would become likable, but there’s SUCH a... More »

Here we have Persevere, Gu Hae-ra, a delightful musical drama on cable channel Mnet that manages to mix in the perfect balance of music, drama, heart, cuteness, and meta.

Heart to Heart: Episode 8
by | February 3, 2015 | 108 Comments
Ah love, it’s so confusing and painful. And weird. Especially when the guy you like insists there’s a shelf life to your relationship, and the guy you’re trying to break up with digs in his heels and refuses to go anywhere.
