What a sweet smile! It seems like every time Min-woo takes one step forward, Ji-sook takes two steps back, in an effort to guard herself against becoming attached and losing her focus to save her family. But it won’t be that easy, as Min-woo becomes more and more endearing the... More »

Kim Yoo-jung (Angry Mom, Elegant Lie) is enjoying a pretty nice career streak right now (I hesitate to say “high” since she’s only 16 and likely has a lot of career still ahead of her), and she’s looking to add another movie to the list. The potential project would pair... More »

Warm and Cozy: Episode 12

It’s amazing (…or is it?) how, when a character stops acting stupid and turns on the decisive swoony switch instead, my general dissatisfaction with a show can make the flip over into satisfaction, even when the plot continues to be silly and illogical. Warm and Cozy isn’t a drama with... More »

Hidden Identity: Episode 1
by | June 18, 2015 | 75 Comments
Hidden Identity is slick, well-produced, impeccably acted, and delivers lots of action and angst in its premiere episode. Our hero is your typical disillusioned cop who’s lost someone he cares about, but there’s enough mystery in his backstory to make me wonder if I’ve got him pegged all wrong. The... More »

High Society: Episode 4
by | June 18, 2015 | 201 Comments
Things move fast in this episode, and I mean fast—one second our hero and heroine aren’t dating, the next they are, and months of essential milestones get compressed into a span of days. It’s a lot to wrap your head around, plus there’s not as much Ji-yi and Chang-soo to... More »

At long last, after weeks of backpedaling and denial, there are true moments of growth and revelation. It’s not even my birthday, but we get a two-for-one deal as both brothers kick things up on the swoony scale, and even take some steps toward maturity. Well, mature is a relative... More »
