High Kick 3: Episodes 82-84
by | January 28, 2012 | 32 Comments
Hearts are broken this week, along with mine. We’ve got a lighter load of three episodes and though I don’t mind a lesser workload, our story feels cut off and I feel a little short-handed. Each of these stories could stand on its own but please sir, I want some more. SONG OF THE DAY... More »

Another round of Variety Roulette is here! This time we tackle We Got Married, the show where stars pretend to be newlyweds in front of the camera.

Yessss! Finally, some major developments on one front! It’s pretty much what we all expected, but that doesn’t make it any less satisfying when it happens. The teasing was drawn-out, but the pay-off sure is satisfying. (Four episodes this week, due to a pre-emption.) SONG OF THE DAY Sweet Sorrow – “첫 데이트” (First Date)... More »

It’s a knockout week for High Kick with laughs, love, and life. How can a show leave me so content but demands that I have a box of tissues by my side? Seung-yoon seems to be the prominent character this week and he finally faces some serious identity issues of his own. Then there’s Ha-sun’s…... More »
