Faith: Episode 9
by | September 10, 2012 | 247 Comments
You win some, you lose some. That’s the realization facing our hero today, as he scores a pretty awesome victory… which comes at a cost. That’s the nature of the game, but when the currency is (quite literally) faith, every step forward and backward can feel extra weighty. That’s also the downside of getting in... More »

Faith: Episode 8

Of all the relationships in dramaland, there is one that will always get me right in the heart—that of a warrior and his king. There’s a lot this show doesn’t do right, but boy does it do that one thing really well. It’s the first episode that has me pumping my fist at the badassery,... More »

Faith: Episode 7
by | September 3, 2012 | 153 Comments
A strong episode, which plays out with tension and intensity in both its emotional and political threads. Best of all, we see our hero — the indifferent, rushes-headlong-into-death Psycho warrior — caught in the throes of conflict. Finally, a crack in his stoic outer shell! He bleeds! He cries! He’s human after all! He may... More »

Faith: Episode 6

Ever wonder what happens when you cross a humorless warrior with a Kangnam princess who doesn’t know the meaning of boundaries? Hilarity, that’s what. And a whole bucket of cute too, which I didn’t expect. I certainly didn’t think this drama would be heavy on the rom-com of all things, but perhaps they’ve figured out... More »

Faith: Episode 5

I never thought I’d say this, but Kim Hee-sun is sorta rocking my socks in this show. It’s more character than acting, but in either case I think both really work to bolster my favorite aspect of the show, which is definitely the comedy angle. It’s so funny how I was expecting Faith to be... More »

Faith: Episode 4

It’s a wonder what a good backstory can do. Choi Young began the series an enigmatic character, though not unexpected, since he’s Warrior Action Man. But it does a lot in making us care for the hero if we’re given some context for how he ended up the way he did, and why he seems... More »

Faith is settling into its story, and finishes setting its main conflicts in place. Now we get a better sense of the big picture, of the extent and reach of this world, so I think (as the press so loves to say) that the real story is finally starting here. I’ve got some good news... More »

Faith: Episode 2

This is a show that can turn on a dime—from sweeping to hilarious to heart-stopping—and so far I’m cheering at every turn. It’s surprisingly witty, and what I enjoy is that for a story with such large scope, the moments between characters feel very small in a nice way. We pause for each relationship, giving... More »

Faith: Episode 1

This looks like it’s gonna be a super fun one. The first episode of Faith is assured, beautifully shot, tightly plotted, and FUNNY. I know “comedy” was one of the descriptors among the many thrown at this drama, but I wasn’t prepared to laugh out loud so much, and in such unexpected moments. It’s a... More »

Here’s the first poster for fantasy fusion drama Faith, with the tagline: “A love that transcends space and time makes history.” Another teaser promises epic action, and features a little more interaction between the leads, one a fearless warrior and royal bodyguard and another a plastic surgeon he kidnaps from the 21st century to heal...

Ah, finally a bit more information on Faith’s Legolas, by which I mean the mysterious white-haired ethereal character we first caught a glimpse of in the drama’s preview. The promo attention for this show has mostly been centered around the two main leads, Lee Min-ho and Kim Hee-sun, as well as the reunion of Legend/Sandglass/Eyes... More »
