Spy: Episode 2
by | January 14, 2015 | 81 Comments
Sleek and stylish, just how I like ‘em. That and how briskly-paced this show is, since Spy isn’t messing around when it comes to getting in and out without wearing out its welcome, which is pretty nifty considering its double-header format and its unusual time slot on Friday nights. The... More »

Healer: Episode 12

One of these days, I’m going to run out of words for this show, because I will have used them all already to tell you that it’s worked its weird witchcraft yet again to deliver yet another compulsively watchable episode. I find the recent explosion of interest and excitement to... More »

by | January 13, 2015 | 12 Comments
Cable drama City of the Sun, based on a highly successful Japanese drama (and source novel, titled Tetsu no Hone/Bones of Steel), has released a whole slew of teaser videos, although they’re so short that they add up to scarcely a minute in total. But better than nothing, right? Despite... More »

Hyde, Jekyll, Me teases fleeting fanciful romance
by | January 13, 2015 | 49 Comments
I love the bright colors in this new poster for SBS’s new Wednesday-Thursday drama Hyde, Jekyll, Me — I have no idea what a comic book style has anything to do with the premise whatsoever, but I guess we’re in for a whimsical romance of sorts, the way the drama... More »

Posters are out for fusion romance period drama Shine or Go Crazy, and you can tell they’re really going for the star-crossed lovers angle, what with all the shiny (crazy?) stars and the romantic gazes. (The stars are pretty but I actually wish they’d eased off a bit, because now... More »

More good stuff! It’s pretty gratifying to go into each episode hoping for the best and to be rewarded, because so often we’re met with disappointment instead. This episode makes some huge strides forward with connections being drawn and continued shifts in the relationships, bringing forth some unexpected (but totally... More »

Kill Me, Heal Me: Episode 2
by | January 12, 2015 | 78 Comments
Kill Me, Heal Me‘s premise had so much potential to go very wrong, so I’m glad that it’s taken the path of thoughtful pathos rather than cheap laughs and overwrought melo. By packing some emotional heft into the characters, even the much-used battlefield of corporate takeovers can be refreshed. Fighter... More »

Things get a bit more interesting as we start to learn more about Yi-seok’s family background, and discover exactly how crippling Hong-do’s anxiety can be. Though Yi-seok is off the hook for the stabbing, he’s still in hot water for drinking on the job, and his personal life takes a... More »

by | January 12, 2015 | 49 Comments
The first teaser’s out for tvN’s upcoming romantic comedy Ho-gu’s Love, and it is just adorable. Granted, when you cast baby-faced Choi Woo-shik (Fated To Love You, Rooftop Prince) as your hero you’re bound for cute, but he’s working extra-hard in this clip to turn on the charm, and it... More »
