This episode is downright fun, filled with high stakes and intrigue as Sohyeon’s life gets caught in the midst of a political power play Dal-hyang can either choose to escape from or commit himself to for the long haul. Choosing the latter opens up even more do-or-die options, the hardest of which are whether he’ll... More »

Secret Door: Episode 3
by | September 29, 2014 | 10 Comments
With this episode, the story turns into a full-fledged murder mystery, with our prince in the role of dogged truth-seeker. For being a story where we think we know exactly whodunnit and how, there’s actually more doubt and suspicion than I would have expected; characters turn shifty and cryptic, their behaviors shrouded in as-yet-unexplained motives....

Plus Nine Boys: Episode 10

There’s a whole lot of squeeing going on in this episode, most of it coming from the boys (and me, let’s just be honest). They finally get their chances to show their ladies how they feel, with differing results — and now that we’ve seen things from the women’s perspective, it’s fun to watch them... More »

My Secret Hotel: Episode 10
by | September 27, 2014 | 69 Comments
This is an episode packed with character developments (and regressions…) and focuses largely on the love triangle of Sung-gyum and the newlyweds. The male posturing continues, ranging from comedic and petty to crushing, and more than one heart is trodden on as things come to a head. Gestures only pay off when there’s already understanding,...

Plus Nine Boys: Episode 9

Yay, we get an episode devoted entirely to the girls, and as a result, everyone’s love lives take big leaps forward. Not that I don’t love this drama’s unique take on life from the guys’ side of things, but when you’ve got three leading men who pretty much think women are capricious aliens, a trip... More »

Tae-ha goes on a downward emotional spiral, as it hits him that he and Yeo-reum are really over. He can’t help but watch over her, even though it only makes him more miserable, and he’s starting to withdraw in a way that makes me worry for him. But it looks like things are about to... More »

Secret Door: Episode 2
by | September 23, 2014 | 35 Comments
With the setup swiftly in place in one episode, the story gets going in earnest today, with the central mystery that will drive the plot from here on out. It’s such an interesting world that I actually wouldn’t mind a slower introduction to the numerous characters (really, there are so many), but watching these actors... More »

Dal-hyang and Sohyeon finally get to make good on their bet, even if one of them has no idea the game is rigged, good intentions be damned—or not, since those intentions might’ve saved a life. Or yes, unless being set right cancels the wrong done to set things right? Either way, Dal-hyang has some soul-searching... More »

Secret Door is probably my most anticipated drama of the year, so to say I was nervous and excited about its premiere is something of an understatement. The history that this story deals with is so gripping, moving, and morbidly fascinating that once your imagination is grabbed, there’s no letting go. I’ll get into the... More »
