by | March 27, 2015 | 52 Comments
javabeans: You know, despite my early misgivings, Three Meals a Day: Fishing Village turned out to be a lot more interesting than I’d thought. And also, way more entertaining than the farmhouse edition, which was fun in a boring way, or maybe boring in a fun way. girlfriday: Yeah, for... More »

Ho-gu’s Love: Episode 14
by | March 27, 2015 | 48 Comments
Ah, the ordinary life. Falling in love, holding hands, raising a child that isn’t your own, disappointing your parents. Yep. Totally ordinary. But is being ordinary overrated? Maybe it’s better to just be different so long as you’re true to yourself, even if it means being shunned by society. Or... More »

Superdaddy Yeol: Episode 4
by | March 27, 2015 | 40 Comments
It’s an episode where nothing goes to plan for anyone, and like Yeol, I’m getting mixed messages. Do Mi-rae’s ends justify her means? Meanwhile, Yeol has to adjust to his new housemates, whose lifestyle is pretty much the antithesis of his, and everyone finds that it takes more than living... More »

Angry Mom: Episode 4
by | March 26, 2015 | 99 Comments
With every episode, this show gets darker, more emotionally charged, and harder-hitting. It’s not without its funny moments, but the humor feels more like a necessary interlude between intense scenes, like a chance to take a breath before diving back into the grimness of reality. I’m a bit amazed to... More »

Hyde, Jekyll, Me: Episode 20 (Final)
by | March 26, 2015 | 146 Comments
On the one hand, the finale of Hyde, Jekyll, Me finally gives me what I’ve been wanting from the show. On the other, I’ve been waiting for nineteen episodes for this stuff to happen, which kind of takes the punch out of getting what I want. It’s time to face... More »

Ho-gu’s Love: Episode 13
by | March 26, 2015 | 57 Comments
Awkward, party of two, your kiss I mean, your table is ready. Ho-gu and Do-hee dance around each other, neither willing to be the first to mention The Kiss, but eventually something’s gotta give. It’s a roller-coaster of an episode, with some very low lows but also thankfully some very... More »

Joo Sang-wook and Kim Sun-ah for new KBS vigilante drama
by | March 26, 2015 | 86 Comments
Okay, why does the mental picture of Joo Sang-wook as a caped crusader immediately give me the giggles? Maybe it’s because he’s been letting loose in a string of rom-coms lately (Birth of a Beauty, Sly and Single Again), but I can so picture him in a ridiculous hero costume... More »

Angry Mom: Episode 3
by | March 25, 2015 | 59 Comments
Well, nobody ever said being a thirtysomething posing as a high schooler wouldn’t be exasperating—especially when you’ve got a wide-eyed authority figure determined to save you from yourself, and you can’t convince him that you don’t need saving, thank you very much. Our angry mom makes good headway into her... More »
