Plus Nine Boys: Episode 1
by | September 1, 2014 | 24 Comments
Coming-of-age drama Plus Nine Boys* premiered over the weekend on tvN, and I’m happy to say it’s as cute as advertised. It’s witty and full of funny meta references, but more importantly it has everyday, relatable characters and an earnest vibe. I already love the song choices in the first episode, and in fact the...

Movie Review: Voice (Whispering Corridors 4, 2005)
by | August 31, 2014 | 6 Comments
It seems to me that as the Whispering Corridors series goes on, the degree of commentary the films make about high school lessens in each installment. The original Whispering Corridors was a scathing indictment of the abuses that youth endure at school and the second pointed a finger at the rigidity of social structures and... More »

It’s Okay, It’s Love: Episode 12
by | August 30, 2014 | 85 Comments
It feels like only last week that these two bickering lovebirds were still finding their footing relationship-wise, but if it were up to Jae-yeol, we’d already hear wedding bells ringing. Just because there’s a life commitment on the table doesn’t mean that they don’t still have their small everyday problems to deal with too—because we... More »

My Secret Hotel: Episode 4

The investigation takes the forefront this hour and there’s progress on our mystery, even if it’s lateral rather than forward. We knew Hwang was shady, but now we find out how shady everyone else is, too. The classic “closed circle of suspects” element gives it all an Agatha Christie feel, which I think the show... More »

It’s Okay, It’s Love: Episode 11
by | August 29, 2014 | 56 Comments
It’s always more pleasant watching this couple onscreen whenever they aren’t bickering over the same argument we’ve heard many times over already. Despite their differences, both Hae-soo and Jae-yeol make continuous efforts to keep their relationship alive and discover that a little breathing room for the other party goes a long way. And while one... More »

Joseon Gunman: Episode 20

It’s showtime. The plot picks up and as both sides amp up their strategizing, with spies and counterspies deployed in the game to win the upper hand and outmaneuver the opposition. Both teams make some important strides and face obstacles, but ultimately this episode acts as the launching pad for the big event: military coup.... More »

Discovery of Romance: Episode 4

There’s not a whole lot of plot development in this episode, though the rivalry between Tae-ha and Ha-jin begins in earnest. Even though Tae-ha claims to be disinterested in Yeo-reum, his actions are a different story – and as Ha-jin says, guys only need a minute to size each other up. Ha-jin’s got his eye... More »

As the line between what Gun says and what he actually means becomes more blurred in this hour, it’s no wonder that Mi-young and anyone else in this dramaverse has trouble understanding why he’s keeping the one most precious to him at arm’s length. It’s an hour that calls for more patience and waiting, but... More »
