Look at that face — that’s a lovestruck boy if ever I saw one! Last week, we were treated to adults acting like adults in bed, and this week we get to see adults acting like adults OUT of bed, which is just as refreshing. This episode is all about frank talks and honesty, and... More »

Get ready for a softer side of Se-gi this episode, who appears ready to sacrifice any and all shreds of self-respect in order to woo Ri-jin.

Punch: Episode 11

A carefully laid trap is sprung this episode, giving our good(-ish) guys a much-needed boost to continue fighting the good(-ish) fight. It’s all gray areas when it comes to these characters, and trying to figure out which shade of grey they represent is about as useless an endeavor as nailing jello to a tree. With... More »

SBS’s new Wednesday-Thursday series Hyde, Jekyll, Me got off to a good start today, with solid character introductions, a mystery, and a touch of whimsy.

This show has gone from “slow and a bit dragging” to “hilarious yet heart-tugging” in the space of one short week, and I’m loving every second of it. It’s been a long time since I laughed this hard, and the humor is so offbeat and quirky that I’m constantly taken by surprise. But that’s not... More »
