I was wondering when this spy unit was gonna get some brains. Now that action spy sequel IRIS 2 has cast all its field agents and enemy spies and possibly-maybe-doubling-crossing-agents, it finally adds an analyst to the roster: Baek Sung-hyun has joined the cast as a young genius hacker without whom NSS wouldn’t go ’round....

It just gets better and better. Lines are drawn and everyone crosses them, culminating in one of the most emotionally satisfying episodes in the series. Moo-yul finds himself the master of his own fate and goes with his heroic gut, which we wouldn’t have any other way. In retrospect, I only see one negative in... More »

Are monsters born or made? Our boys (and okay, one girl) come face to face with a bonafide monster who loves guns, threats, and mind games. If group counseling were a blood sport, it’d probably look a lot like this drama, which takes a crack at normal therapy by amping it up a couple notches.... More »

The boys go on a witch-hunt to find their murder suspect, resulting in a game of cat and mouse that just so happens to take place in a creepily large, snow-covered glass prison.

Well, it ends. Listen, my mother said that if I don’t have nice things to say… waitaminute, my mother never said that. Let the ragefest begin! This show is basically a lesson in math. Turns out you can have great parts, but the sum can add up to less than those parts. I know! I... More »

Oy, my head hurts. This wasn’t a straight-up bad episode, which I might have even been fine with, given the entertainment value of bad. (See: Dr. Jin.) Instead, it was outright incomprehensible, leaving me scratching my head in confusion and wondering if I suddenly lost a few brain cells in the story comprehension department, because... More »

Just when you think you’ve gotten through all the major revelations, more twists and turns come barreling through everyone’s lives like a tornado. The twists are cool, but the way everyone’s acting has me climbing the walls and losing my patience. Must everyone be on the path to noble idiocy? And if you get found... More »

Major revelations come pouring out, including the birth secret, the link between the brothers, and even the mechanism of the body-swap.
