Heart to Heart: Episode 1
by | January 11, 2015 | 88 Comments
The show is off to a bit of a slow start, and I’ll admit that Heart to Heart is nothing like what I expected. But that’s not necessarily a bad thing, and once I got used to the relaxed pace I found that I actually like the characters very much. They all seem to be... More »

Pinocchio: Episode 17
by | January 8, 2015 | 136 Comments
The tension has admittedly gone down in recent weeks (Hyung’s arc kind of topped us out as far as suspense goes), but today’s episode actually brings back some of the stronger heroine-centric elements that we’d seen before, like when In-ha dared to publicly confront her mother about the kind of reporter she really was. Today’s... More »

Punch: Episode 7
by | January 8, 2015 | 46 Comments
The secret’s out, not to the people who’d be most affected by the knowledge, but instead falling into the hands of those who would do the most damage with it—a fact that shouldn’t be surprising in a world as unforgiving as this one. Former pillars of morality begin to fall this hour, leaving Ha-kyung as... More »

Back to cute! We get a heaping dose of romance and comedy today, because we’ve been good little beans. In place of denial comes a refreshing wave of honesty and understanding, and a nice growth spurt for our rookie reporters too—when they speak up for what they believe in, they find that they might actually...

An enormous manhunt takes place when our villain’s beloved brother eludes our heroine’s grasp, prompting a showdown between those prosecutors who consider themselves law-abiding and those who’ve made the law their bitch. But as it turns out, even the most powerful of men can’t do everything alone—meaning that someone must be really missing his partner... More »

Healer: Episode 10
by | January 6, 2015 | 4,036 Comments
It’s an emotionally charged episode on several fronts, so everybody brace your hearts for some pinching. There’s plenty of cuteness and crushing to go around, but now that we’re at the halfway point, feelings deepen and entangle and get more complicated—especially with more of the past surfacing to shed light on the present. We thought... More »

Healer: Episode 9

And we’re back! Did you all manage that weeklong wait without too much angst? Judging from the hoppin’ recap thread, I’m guessing this episode couldn’t come a moment too soon. Thankfully Healer follows up that last episode with one that’s on par with what we’ve come to expect of this show: cute relationship developments, some... More »

Pinocchio: Episode 15

So SBS changed their minds this week and there’s no double-header for Pinocchio, which I suppose might only be good news for a recapper, but don’t worry—the episode makes up for it with some juicy tidbits in the investigation and the relationships. Of course that leaves us just hungry enough to clamor for next week’s... More »

Punch: Episode 5

Leave it to a show as tense and unrelenting as Punch to make even the act of eating jjajangmyun an edge-of-your-seat affair—though I guess when you have such fully realized characters with such conflicting desires, even sustenance can become stand-in for something more: a challenge, a memory, a friendship, a bitter rivalry. Some shows allow... More »

Healer: Episode 8

It’s a good thing I write these recaps as I watch the episode and not after already watching it through, because otherwise today’s recap would just be pictures and unintelligible vowel sounds. Like urrrrrrr and eeeeeeeeeeeeeeeee and ahhhhhhhhhhhhh. I’m sure that would’ve been entertaining for all of two seconds before you needed to know exactly... More »

Healer: Episode 7

Is passive-aggressive Healer not the cutest thing or what? His disguise is both a handy tool and a hindrance, since he’s bound by his secret identity to behave in a certain Bong-soo-like way… which, on the flipside, allows him cover to act blissfully ignorant while getting to be petty and jealous. I could pretty much... More »
