Twenty Again: Episode 2
by | August 29, 2015 | 146 Comments
I really love Lee Sang-yoon and Choi Ji-woo’s brand of petty bickering in this. It’s an entire drama about adults who don’t know how to act like adults, but because all of the characters are like this, it evens the playing field. Everyone is a little bit hapless but really endearing, none more than Choi... More »

Yong-pal: Episode 8

There’s no dearth of feelings in this episode, and jealousy is to blame as a catalyst for most of them. But everyone who formerly wanted a piece of Yeo-jin now thinks they can do without her, even our hero—though he never sacrifices who he is at her expense, and even when he tries, the results...

Twenty Again: Episode 1

It’s a promising beginning for Twenty Again, which starts off by putting our heroine in some sad places but does so with a nice touch of humor—she may feel sad, but the show maintains a lightness and sense of comedy that promises a more buoyant future. I like this approach, because I don’t want to... More »

Running Man: Episode 261

Nothing like chills and thrills to cool you off in the summer as we jump back in for Part 2 of this five-year celebration. The music theme flows into the second half of this episode because that eerie piano melody playing in the distance is guaranteed to make anyone’s hair stand on end. Our cast... More »

Yong-pal: Episode 7

Injuries need time to recover, and this episode slows things down so that hearts can heal before they’re broken once more. I’m talking about our hearts, because this show continues to take us on a never-ending emotional ride. It helps to know people in high places when you need medical attention, because hell if anyone... More »

Scholar Who Walks the Night: Episode 16

It’s hard not to find this episode frustrating, when an entire group of your leading characters are operating under false information and magically only encountering others who are equally misinformed. Everyone has the best intentions, of course, but I could do with fewer good intentions and more communication, especially when lives are on the line.... More »

Time is running out to catch a serial killer, and Young-jin and her team face more than just professional failure if they don’t succeed — lives are on the line. We get a few steps closer to understanding how all the separate people and cases relate to each other… or, we learn that they do... More »

Scholar Who Walks the Night: Episode 15

I think I’d like an episode that wasn’t predicated on a noble sacrifice (pretty please?), which seems to be such a regular occurrence here in Scholar-land that I cease to find it a moving plot point. But if you press me to find a silver lining about it, I suppose I prefer episodes like this... More »

As one case is closed, another opens, and Young-jin’s team refocuses on the teenage sex-trafficking ring. But some things just don’t add up, and there may be more to this case than meets the eye. Meanwhile Do-young still has a lot to learn about how to be part of a team, and Jin-woo seems to... More »
