Fated To Love You: Episode 3
by | July 10, 2014 | 94 Comments
Yeah, I’d look like that if I just got some unexpected life-changing news, too. Humorous and heart-tugging, this show gets more adorable by the minute. The hour goes by pretty quick when you’ve got a heroine trying to figure out how one night turned her world upside down, and a... More »

Gah, nobody beats Lee Jun-ki for expressive eyes. The painnnn, you can just feel it through his gaze. This is an episode that covers a fair bit of setup ground, because we’re starting anew as our hero puts his revenge mission into motion. I’m thankful that the show has done... More »

You’re All Surrounded: Episode 17
by | July 9, 2014 | 58 Comments
There are big revelations for our hero, but by and large it’s an episode spent circling the wagons, which isn’t terribly exciting since we’re chomping at the bit for results, not strategizing sessions. Obviously we can’t get there until our characters have caught up to the truth, but could we... More »

Oh Snap! Surplus mermaid princess
by | July 9, 2014 | 56 Comments
I don’t know why they didn’t just title Surplus Princess The Little Mermaid instead, since that’s the pun (surplus princess is just a mumble away from sounding like the other title), and also the source material: The story is about an actual mermaid who comes to Seoul in search of... More »

Bath time snuggles for It’s Okay, It’s Love
by | July 8, 2014 | 61 Comments
Here’s the first poster and first (non-plagiarized) teaser for It’s Okay, It’s Love, SBS’s next Wednesday-Thursday drama about a mystery novelist and a shrink. I just really, really hope she’s not his shrink, because then that makes the poster all kinds of wrong. If you don’t think about that possibility,... More »

Triangle: Episode 19
by | July 8, 2014 | 65 Comments
For an episode following a rather big revelation, we’re rewarded with more planning and scheming in this hour. To Young-dal’s credit, it’s a pretty smart plan because it requires knowing what makes the other person tick and what pressure points will evoke the kind of reaction our hero wants. It... More »

The pheromone levels are high as we see lots of feelings in this episode – some of them real, fake, and some in between. Despite the despicable nature of certain characters, we’re given reasons to care for and sympathize with them. We’re reminded that everyone has their own struggles, makes... More »
