Fated To Love You: Episode 15
by | August 20, 2014 | 58 Comments
Gun will need to be quite the sleuth if he doesn’t want anyone else catching onto the idea about his lingering feelings for the woman he once sent away. Now that he’s clued into the notion that Mi-young is no longer the same woman who fell in love with him three years ago, Gun is... More »

Joseon Gunman: Episode 17
by | August 20, 2014 | 21 Comments
There’s a Korean saying that suits practically every hero and heroine known to dramaland, which is mountain after mountain. As in, you exert all this energy into climbing one huge mountain of pain and effort, only to find at its peak that there’s a whole freaking other mountain hiding behind it. And before you collapse...

Discovery of Romance: Episode 1
by | August 20, 2014 | 86 Comments
So fun! The premiere episode of Discovery of Romance really delivers, in just about every area you want a good rom-com to deliver: great leads with fantastic chemistry, hilarious best friends and witty banter, and no small amount of kissing and skinship (oh, and abs. Lots of abs). If the show keeps going the way... More »

girlfriday: We catch up to the boys in the aftermath of being abandoned by the entire crew in the middle of the night. Hee-yeol says he saw the letter and expected it to be a gift, and thought to himself, “Young-seokie [Na PD] isn’t such a bad kid.” Then we cut to Na PD sneaking... More »

Three Musketeers: Episode 1
by | August 18, 2014 | 126 Comments
Great summer fun! Three Musketeers kicked off its first episode (and first season, of three planned) yesterday, and I’m hooked already: The show has a swift storytelling style, a delightfully cheeky sense of humor (which often dips into the refreshingly deadpan), and a set of characters with heart. And you know, despite my misgivings about... More »

Marriage Not Dating: Episode 14

It’s an episode full of frustration for poor Ki-tae, both emotionally and physically, as he learns about life as the boyfriend of a successful entrepreneur. He and Jang-mi both learn a little about how important it is to communicate honestly, and I can only say thank goodness, it’s about time. Because when your girlfriend’s ex... More »

It’s Okay, It’s Love: Episode 8
by | August 16, 2014 | 156 Comments
The fixation on our heroine’s reluctance toward physical intimacy goes into overdrive in an hour with as much of a one-track mind as its straight-shooting hero. I guess it won’t come as that much of a surprise when the weeks leading up to this have dedicated a fair amount of energy to the idea of... More »

Trot Lovers: Episode 16 (Final)
by | August 16, 2014 | 41 Comments
Trot Lovers wraps up its run with a finale that gives me everything I’ve ever wanted from this show, as it addresses the big question of “does everyone live happily ever after?” Particularly, are the sins of the Worst Parents Ever to be passed down to the children? Or is it possible to break free... More »

Marriage Not Dating: Episode 13

The problem with filling your day with trying to forget the person you love… is that you spend all day thinking about the person you love. It’s an episode spent in denial, but in the cute way where everyone runs around doing adorable things for each other in secret. I don’t see why you couldn’t... More »

It’s Okay, It’s Love: Episode 7
by | August 15, 2014 | 129 Comments
Every new relationship comes with its own kind of butterflies in one’s stomach feeling, an uplifting effect of attraction that even our lovephobic shrink isn’t exempt from. In fact, it’s nice to watch Hae-soo enjoy spending time with someone she honestly likes, vindictive big bro Jae-bum notwithstanding. It’s the little moments in this hour that... More »
