In the wake of another crushing defeat at the hands of villains with truly dangerous amounts of power, even our resilient anti-hero finds he’s not immune to the siren song that is doubt, and the short moment he experiences it might just be the closest he’ll ever come to throwing... More »

Kim Ji-won as Yoochun’s potential co-star in Sensory Couple
by | February 5, 2015 | 103 Comments
I have good news, and even better news. I’m not sure which is which, but I’ll let you decide: One, the drama formerly known (and laughed at) as The Girl Who Sees Smells has decided to rename itself Sensory Couple, and two, after courting Suzy, who did not take the... More »

If only every prickly romantic hero had an impish alter ego to force him out of his comfort zone. Now that he’s forced to shack up with the woman he tried to send away, Seo-jin can’t exactly cut himself off from the rest of the world anymore, though not for... More »

It’s never been more difficult to be one of the good guys in a show where the bad guys always find a way to win, since there’s no low people like them won’t stoop to in order to get their way. Sometimes it feels like Jung-hwan and Ha-kyung are fighting... More »

Song Joong-ki considers new drama Descended From the Sun
by | February 4, 2015 | 141 Comments
Oh man, I have such mixed feelings about this. On the one hand, YAY Song Joong-ki (Nice Guy, Wolf Boy) will be out of the army and is already looking at projects to return to dramaland! On the other hand, if he returns in a Kim Eun-sook drama (the hit... More »

Healer: Episode 18

Strap yourselves in, folks, it’s a roller coaster of an episode, running the entire emotional gamut—there’s plenty of cuteness and laughs, but with only one more week left, we can’t rest too assured in momentary comforts. We’re never far from the undercurrent of unease that runs throughout, reminding us that... More »

Heart to Heart: Episode 8

Ah love, it’s so confusing and painful. And weird. Especially when the guy you like insists there’s a shelf life to your relationship, and the guy you’re trying to break up with digs in his heels and refuses to go anywhere. I suppose our heroine could have worse problems than... More »

Kim Jung-eun headlines new drama as ajumma vigilante
by | February 3, 2015 | 32 Comments
I guess in hindsight, Kim Jung-eun (Oohlala Spouses) was smart to turn down the SBS weekend drama My Heart Twinkle Twinkle, legal disputes and all, because that show is regularly pulling in 2% ratings (pretty abysmal, when successful weekenders sometimes break 30-40%). It also frees her up to headline a... More »

Kill Me, Heal Me: Episode 8
by | February 3, 2015 | 294 Comments
This episode had me in stitches. So many stitches. What’s great about this show is how increasingly grounded it becomes in its own reality, letting the humor run high and the pathos run deep. Although the metaphors aren’t subtle, the emotional delivery and throughline are everything I could wish for,... More »

We’ve got fun and thrills in store for us today, with the central Scooby gang united in purpose and out to pull off a caper. I love caper plots. It’s a dangerous game they’re playing, but our team goes all-out and heightens the already high stakes, sending the message to... More »

It’s the one dinner party to rule them all, where everyone but our hero has a secret agenda for the eat ’n greet that mostly revolves around a mysterious hard drive and/or hacking into a phone, both tasks having special significance to our baddies in the North. What significance? Good... More »
