Oh, I love this episode—our hero takes one important step towards becoming a virtuoso, but more importantly, his music stirs something deep inside our heroine and the focus shifts to how he influences her.

All for one, one for all! I hope everyone’s taken this past week to emotionally prepare, because this is an ending that throws a lot of things our way—some of them fun and interesting, others bittersweet. I admit I didn’t quite know how a multi-season format would work out, but... More »

It definitely feels like we’re at the peak of the first half of our story, as every single conflict comes to a head in one gruesome trial, with one side willing to die to expose the truth, and the other determined to kill if they have to, to keep it... More »

Cantabile Tomorrow: Episode 7
by | November 3, 2014 | 88 Comments
The playing field gets a shake-up and the dynamics get turned all upside-down and around, in a fun way that makes for some significant character movement. I love to see the orchestra coming to the fore and becoming, rather than an albatross around your neck to drag you down, something... More »

With Dae Jang Geum 2 dead in the water (Or is it? Will MBC ever let Dae Jang Geum die?) the network is scooping up Lee Yeon-hee (Miss Korea) to headline their next historical drama, called Splendid Politics. It’s funny how a few years ago, this would’ve been reason enough... More »
