Punch: Episode 2
by | December 21, 2014 | 7 Comments
Man, this show is intense. Never has the quote “better to reign in Hell than to serve in Heaven” been so apt than for Punch, a legal thriller about a prosecutor whose ambition dictates practically everything he does. His fiery resolve is both fascinating and rage-inducing to watch in the most intriguing of ways—Jung-hwan thinks... More »

The art of lie detection [Year in Review, Part 3]
by | December 19, 2014 | 74 Comments
I think I echo the entire human race when I say that there was something in the air this year that made the days go by faster. What other explanation could there be for the fact that it’s December again? Why does the end of the year have to be once a year? Maybe we... More »

Pain paaain go away, come again another day! Turns out yesterday’s episode wasn’t the worst of the heartbreak, not by a long shot. Our hero decides that he doesn’t deserve to be happy anymore and seems determined to spread the pain around while he’s at it. This plan is good for nobody, I want to... More »

Pinocchio: Episode 11

I wish I could tell you that learning the truth meant that everyone got a happy fluffy holiday reunion, but that would be a big fat lie. It’s time for our hero to face the music about everything he’s been dreading and denying about his past, even if it means waking up from the dream... More »

Punch: Episode 1
by | December 17, 2014 | 50 Comments
So intense. I guess we should’ve expected nothing less from the writer who brought us The Chaser and Empire of Gold, since both were exceptionally well-written character dramas—the former having more elements of action than the latter, and the latter having pretty much invented its own brand of excitement when the majority of its scenes...

Healer: Episode 4
by | December 16, 2014 | 118 Comments
Healer continues to hit all the right buttons for me—there’s fun, humor, style, cuteness, and a touch of longing. So far the show has done a great job balancing the parts we care about with the necessary evils—you know, the politicians, the media bigwigs, the news-related stuff—and being careful not to lose sight of entertainment...

The newbies seem to have finally hit their stride, and for at least one episode, there isn’t the sense of soul-crushing agony as we watch them go about their day. However, nothing is ever that easy at One International, and it’s the higher-ups who now struggle — particularly Chief Oh, as he not only discovers... More »

There’s hope yet for the boys as they determine to make an album no matter what it takes, but the mechanism for getting their dream may carry a price bigger than they’re willing to pay.

Healer: Episode 3

Today gives us a pleasantly funny, lighthearted episode with just a tinge of a melancholy undercurrent—an undercurrent I’m sure we’ll be seeing more of as we delve deeper into the mystery that binds together our cast, and the key dates in the past that mark their connection. I’m really enjoying the spirit of tongue-in-cheek fun... More »
