Faith: Episode 18
by | October 9, 2012 | 225 Comments
It’s time for our good guys to turn the tables for once, and actually deliver some major blows to the baddies. Young finally starts acting like a general (whooo), though it throws him into a tailspin about his place in the world. If there ever was a reluctant hero, I swear. Tags: Faith, featured, Kim...

Faith: Episode 17
by | October 8, 2012 | 175 Comments
A big episode in several ways: For one, our underdog team of palace refugees takes strides toward reclaiming their rightful positions. Our heroes find themselves with their backs up against a wall (and yes, also in a sexy way), and it’s up to them to find out a way out of the coil. The baddies... More »

Dramabeans Podcast #14, Part 1

We’re a bit overdue for a podcast, which means that this one’s super long. In our defense, there was a ton of ground to cover. And yeah, so maybe we just had a lot to say about Gaksital. I was SO determined to make this podcast fit into one reasonably-lengthed entry… but who was I... More »

Faith: Episode 16

A pretty action-packed episode, with one of the most surprising alliances yet. My favorite thing about the new Big Bad in town is that he moves swiftly. There’s no I’ll-get-you-but-maybe-tomorrow-ing for this guy; when he sees his opportunity, he strikes. That means a change of address for many of our characters and a faster-moving story... More »

Out with the old, in with the new: There’s a brand-new ratings three-way in dramaland, with two new dramas premiering this week in the Monday-Tuesday slot. And wouldn’t you know it, the results didn’t quite shake out as expected. Oohlala Spouses was KBS’s new entry, with its rom-com hijinks replacing Haeundae Lovers. Over on MBC,... More »

A surprisingly strong episode, which pulls out a nice twist just when I was starting to tire of the current configuration of alliances and intrigues. I’ll give it to this show: It may be plodding at points, but from a character standpoint it does quite a good job drawing out layers and rich conflict. Relationships... More »

A bribery scandal turns into a huge test of loyalty for a king and his woodalchi, and the closer Eun-soo gets to finding her way home, it starts to dawn on our couple how little time they might have left together. Nothing like a little impending rift in the space-time continuum to kick a romance... More »

I love this couple when they’re being cute. Moreover, I love that their rapport has been duly noticed by pretty much everyone in the palace, giving them the time and space in which to be cute. ‘Cause dramaland heroes and heroines, sometimes they need a big kick in the pants to step up to the...

A much more exciting episode, with a face-off and big step forward for our couple. The good guys even get a step ahead with a scheme that proves they’re not just sitting ducks, and that Aunt and Young are really the brains of this operation. Mostly there’s a lot of funny and even a little... More »

The romance may not be the driving force behind this show, but it takes a nice step forward in this episode, interweaving nicely with the themes at large. I appreciate that while love isn’t the end-all-be-all for our characters (namely our hero), those emotional throughlines play into the dynamics driving the rest of the story.... More »

Faith: Episode 10

Some major revelations, a new set of questions, and some nice character moments… though they don’t quite add up to the most exciting episode on the block. Eun-soo finally begins to realize that there are some unexpected and massive consequences to her being in this time and place, and finds that she’s connected to more... More »
