The Great Seer sees slow start, Nice Guy keeps ratings lead
by | October 10, 2012 | 94 Comments
A new drama joins the pack today with grand-scale fusion sageuk The Great Seer premiering on SBS. The show has a pretty epic scope and lots of big names in its cast (Ji Jin-hee, Ji Sung, Kim So-yeon, Song Chang-eui, Lee Yoon-ji), so it’s a bit surprising to see its first outing netting a mere...

Wow, oh wow. We’re treated to a whole buffet of revelations today as the pieces come slamming together in a collision of buried secrets and rediscovered memories. I love that we’re still making discoveries, especially in a show where we’ve had a good long while to think we had everything figured out. With the truth... More »

The truth comes barreling through town today, and flattens everybody in its path. Eun-oh comes face to face with Mom, Arang starts to regain some crucial memories, and Joo-wal… oh Joo-wal… He breaks my heart even more, and… is possibly way more evil than we imagined. Or not! He could not be, right? Riiiiight? *whimper*... More »

Woohoo, tons of advancement in this episode. Dots are connected, motivations explained, and true identities revealed. Eun-oh stands firm about his feelings and twists our hearts just a little bit more (and oy, they’re already twisted pretty painfully), while a voice of reason clears one big obstacle out of the way. Plus, some questions are... More »

Okay, this episode made me change my mind about wanting all feelings out in the open, because our hero’s achy breaky heart just kills me. It’s. So. Sweet. It’s a great example of when angst can be so good when it’s motivated by larger-than-life conflict, and when trying to hide your bleeding heart can be... More »

Aww, another strong episode, with more dots being connected and more emotions on the line as our characters struggle to figure out what it is they feel, and what they can possibly do about it. More significantly (okay, maybe equally significantly), we get some long-awaited freakin’ honesty all up in this hizzy. At a certain... More »

So much awesome. There’s badassery, romance, revelations for so many characters, and a crucial reveal about our hero. I love that this show just keeps me guessing, even when I could be content to solve the riddles at hand. But a really great mystery knows how to answer a question with more questions, to keep...

I love today’s moodier, contemplative vibe. We still get our dash of humor and our advancing of the Mom-demon mystery, but emotional development is really the focus of the episode, and there’s a lovely air of poignancy about it. Because what’s the use of falling in love when you’re doomed from the start, right? If... More »

This pair is just so cute and crackling with chemistry. You could do anything with them and I’m laughing and swooning and grinning from ear to ear. We finally get at some feelings in this episode, though the denial is strong with these two. But when danger and fear and worry start to strip away... More »

Another episode of Arang, another layer of plot peeled back. The gods learn a little more about the kind of power they’re up against, giving us a glimpse at the endgame. And finally! A clear answer on what Arang is made of—and it’s a lot more than just sugar and spice. Plus! The hero starts... More »
