Fated To Love You: Episode 3
by | July 10, 2014 | 95 Comments
Yeah, I’d look like that if I just got some unexpected life-changing news, too. Humorous and heart-tugging, this show gets more adorable by the minute. The hour goes by pretty quick when you’ve got a heroine trying to figure out how one night turned her world upside down, and a hero who doesn’t even know... More »

Joseon Gunman: Episode 5
by | July 9, 2014 | 55 Comments
Gah, nobody beats Lee Jun-ki for expressive eyes. The painnnn, you can just feel it through his gaze. This is an episode that covers a fair bit of setup ground, because we’re starting anew as our hero puts his revenge mission into motion. I’m thankful that the show has done such a compelling job of... More »

You’re All Surrounded: Episode 17
by | July 9, 2014 | 59 Comments
There are big revelations for our hero, but by and large it’s an episode spent circling the wagons, which isn’t terribly exciting since we’re chomping at the bit for results, not strategizing sessions. Obviously we can’t get there until our characters have caught up to the truth, but could we maybe get there an eensy... More »

Triangle: Episode 19
by | July 8, 2014 | 65 Comments
For an episode following a rather big revelation, we’re rewarded with more planning and scheming in this hour. To Young-dal’s credit, it’s a pretty smart plan because it requires knowing what makes the other person tick and what pressure points will evoke the kind of reaction our hero wants. It also requires a lot of... More »

High School King of Savvy: Episode 7
by | July 8, 2014 | 147 Comments
The pheromone levels are high as we see lots of feelings in this episode – some of them real, fake, and some in between. Despite the despicable nature of certain characters, we’re given reasons to care for and sympathize with them. We’re reminded that everyone has their own struggles, makes mistakes, and feels pain. That... More »

Doctor Stranger: Episode 19
by | July 7, 2014 | 82 Comments
It’s an odd kind of penultimate episode as jumbled pieces finally start coming together just in time for the surgery we were allegedly waiting weeks for. That isn’t to say those pieces necessarily fit all that well together, but then again, Doctor Stranger has never been the kind of show that gave us answers when... More »

The show continues to delight as it balances humor with heartache, as the plot continues to move along in the quick pace we’ve grown to expect. Chun-hee tries to return to original plan of working part-time jobs to pay off her father’s debt — however she rethinks that decision when she realizes she could could... More »

It’s been so long since I’ve loved a show that I’d forgotten what it felt like, but this week has been enough to rekindle my faith in dramas. On the heels of a winning first outing, we get an especially gratifying hour that still delivers on the fun factor while also bringing in a surprising... More »

King of Savvy keeps bringing the magic with another fantastic episode. Jin-woo decides to be a little more subtle in his battle of wits with Min-seok, and the result pushes our fake director to wrestle with some unfamiliar emotions. Soo-young takes some convincing to begin work as a secretary, but she quickly shows that she’s... More »

Doctor Stranger: Episode 18
by | July 4, 2014 | 63 Comments
Our hero gets railroaded into doing nothing but reacting this hour as the only person he could cling to with any sense of assurance takes some time away from her main job of keeping secrets in order to multitask—now she gets to keep secrets and attempt to scrape Hoon off like an extra-clingy barnacle. When... More »
