Ho-gu finally realizes that Kang-chul isn’t the father. Finally. In a very important plot-point, he also gets a haircut — or maybe Choi Woo-shik just grew weary of wearing the “hogu” wig every week. Either way, it’s a new (hair?) day as he takes a step forward in deciding that... More »

Angry Mom: Episode 2
by | March 19, 2015 | 62 Comments
Kim Hee-sun is such a badass, I don’t even know how she’s kept it under control all these years playing nice girly heroine types. She’s not the type of badass who begs you to admire her badassery from every angle; she’s the kind who just is, and you admire from... More »

Angry Mom is darker than I’d expected it to be, but in a totally welcome way—it’s stark at times and tinged with the harshness of reality, yet has a lot of promise for cuteness and warmth as well. I say promise because there wasn’t a whole lotta comedy in the... More »
