Superdaddy Yeol: Episode 4
by | March 27, 2015 | 40 Comments
It’s an episode where nothing goes to plan for anyone, and like Yeol, I’m getting mixed messages. Do Mi-rae’s ends justify her means? Meanwhile, Yeol has to adjust to his new housemates, whose lifestyle is pretty much the antithesis of his, and everyone finds that it takes more than living together to make a family.... More »

Angry Mom: Episode 4
by | March 26, 2015 | 99 Comments
With every episode, this show gets darker, more emotionally charged, and harder-hitting. It’s not without its funny moments, but the humor feels more like a necessary interlude between intense scenes, like a chance to take a breath before diving back into the grimness of reality. I’m a bit amazed to realize we’re only two weeks... More »

Hyde, Jekyll, Me: Episode 20 (Final)
by | March 26, 2015 | 149 Comments
On the one hand, the finale of Hyde, Jekyll, Me finally gives me what I’ve been wanting from the show. On the other, I’ve been waiting for nineteen episodes for this stuff to happen, which kind of takes the punch out of getting what I want. It’s time to face the music and decide once... More »

Ho-gu’s Love: Episode 13
by | March 26, 2015 | 58 Comments
Awkward, party of two, your kiss I mean, your table is ready. Ho-gu and Do-hee dance around each other, neither willing to be the first to mention The Kiss, but eventually something’s gotta give. It’s a roller-coaster of an episode, with some very low lows but also thankfully some very high highs, and more than... More »

Angry Mom: Episode 3
by | March 25, 2015 | 59 Comments
Well, nobody ever said being a thirtysomething posing as a high schooler wouldn’t be exasperating—especially when you’ve got a wide-eyed authority figure determined to save you from yourself, and you can’t convince him that you don’t need saving, thank you very much. Our angry mom makes good headway into her investigation, but the trick is... More »

No matter how much Seo-jin has come to accept Robin as his own person, we knew that he would have to heal eventually. As much as we’re rooting for Seo-jin to be strong enough to stand on his own, it’s tough to see how terrified Robin is about vanishing completely. But the truth is that... More »

Having decided that Yeol is the only man with the qualifications to become Sa-rang’s father, Mi-rae sets out to convince Yeol of the same thing. There’s nowhere he can hide from her, but from the way he tries you’d think she was a gumiho out to seduce him and devour his liver. There are a... More »

Superdaddy Yeol: Episode 2
by | March 20, 2015 | 20 Comments
I’m in. If the opening episodes are anything to go by, we can enjoy the same light hand and sharp humor that characterized Marriage Not Dating. Mi-rae’s diagnosis brings an undercurrent of gravity and loneliness that makes it easy to root for her. It helps that she’s a badass, and you know what’s better? So... More »

Ho-gu’s Love: Episode 12
by | March 20, 2015 | 64 Comments
Ho-gu finally realizes that Kang-chul isn’t the father. Finally. In a very important plot-point, he also gets a haircut — or maybe Choi Woo-shik just grew weary of wearing the “hogu” wig every week. Either way, it’s a new (hair?) day as he takes a step forward in deciding that it doesn’t matter who Geum-dong’s... More »

Angry Mom: Episode 2

Kim Hee-sun is such a badass, I don’t even know how she’s kept it under control all these years playing nice girly heroine types. She’s not the type of badass who begs you to admire her badassery from every angle; she’s the kind who just is, and you admire from afar while she just couldn’t... More »
