by | May 29, 2015 | 53 Comments
OCN’s new summer show has been flying mostly under the radar, but it does have Lee Shi-young (Valid Love, Golden Cross) in a badass action role (hell yeah) and a really cool premise that sounds like a movie whipped into drama form. The action-thriller is called My Beautiful Bride, and... More »

Warm and Cozy: Episode 6
by | May 28, 2015 | 124 Comments
Today’s an improved outing from yesterday, mostly because She Who Must Not Be Named doesn’t actually have to be named that much. Instead we have two sweet guys running around trying to make our heroine happy, and that’s a dynamic I could watch for days. Of course we can’t leave... More »

Things come together a little more this episode, as our leads’ greater agendas are exposed, or in Dae-chul’s case, created.
