Twenty Again: Episode 2
by | August 29, 2015 | 164 Comments
I really love Lee Sang-yoon and Choi Ji-woo’s brand of petty bickering in this. It’s an entire drama about adults who don’t know how to act like adults, but because all of the characters are like this, it evens the playing field. Everyone is a little bit hapless but really... More »

There’s no dearth of feelings in this episode, and jealousy is to blame as a catalyst for most of them. But everyone who formerly wanted a piece of Yeo-jin now thinks they can do without her, even our hero—though he never sacrifices who he is at her expense, and even... More »

Twenty Again: Episode 1
by | August 28, 2015 | 122 Comments
It’s a promising beginning for Twenty Again, which starts off by putting our heroine in some sad places but does so with a nice touch of humor—she may feel sad, but the show maintains a lightness and sense of comedy that promises a more buoyant future. I like this approach,... More »

Yong-pal: Episode 7

Injuries need time to recover, and this episode slows things down so that hearts can heal before they’re broken once more. I’m talking about our hearts, because this show continues to take us on a never-ending emotional ride. It helps to know people in high places when you need medical... More »

Scholar Who Walks the Night: Episode 16
by | August 27, 2015 | 368 Comments
It’s hard not to find this episode frustrating, when an entire group of your leading characters are operating under false information and magically only encountering others who are equally misinformed. Everyone has the best intentions, of course, but I could do with fewer good intentions and more communication, especially when... More »
