Kill Me, Heal Me: Episode 8
by | February 3, 2015 | 294 Comments
This episode had me in stitches. So many stitches. What’s great about this show is how increasingly grounded it becomes in its own reality, letting the humor run high and the pathos run deep. Although the metaphors aren’t subtle, the emotional delivery and throughline are everything I could wish for, and I’m in awe of... More »

We’ve got fun and thrills in store for us today, with the central Scooby gang united in purpose and out to pull off a caper. I love caper plots. It’s a dangerous game they’re playing, but our team goes all-out and heightens the already high stakes, sending the message to their opponents that not only... More »

It’s the one dinner party to rule them all, where everyone but our hero has a secret agenda for the eat ’n greet that mostly revolves around a mysterious hard drive and/or hacking into a phone, both tasks having special significance to our baddies in the North. What significance? Good question. Maybe we’ll find out... More »

Spy: Episode 7

For a world where the stakes are so high for the characters that inhabit it, the current level of danger they all face is surprisingly low. It’s not like the safe delivery of one handsome secret agent will influence the already tense North-South relations or anything, right? As we learn more about Yoon-jin’s past in... More »

Hyde, Jekyll, Me: Episode 4
by | January 29, 2015 | 154 Comments
This show is pretty ridiculous, but it’s also fun, especially when our hero’s alter ego starts actively messing with his life. Some would call it “fixing” his life, but good luck convincing an uptight control-freak that adding complications is a good thing. But even the bossypants with a stick up his butt has his moments—they... More »

Punch: Episode 13
by | January 29, 2015 | 32 Comments
This episode will make you want to punch the screen, but not in the way you’ve likely wanted to physically harm other drama characters before. It’s infuriating for all the right reasons, weaving a narrative so fraught with tension that there’s no way to watch without feeling a righteous surge of anger when Jung-hwan gets... More »

It’s our first full episode with our hero’s alter ego Robin, who turns out to be much more than just a guy that saves people. Maybe I’m the only one who’s surprised to find heart in a relationship between a man and his split-personality, but I find myself more invested now that we’ve met Robin.... More »

Punch: Episode 12

There’s a noticeable power shift this hour, forcing our resident baddie (no, not that one, the other one—no no, the other one) to choose between giving up his dream or giving up everything he’s ever worked for in exchange for keeping a semblance of power. Similarly, our anti-hero faces some major roadblocks in his quest... More »

Is that the “oh shit” face you’re wearing right now? Because it’s mountain after mountain for our Healer, whose every step forward is dogged by setbacks that land him in some new kind of peril at every turn. On the upside, the Scooby gang is solidifying and gaining members, and I absolutely love that. On... More »
