Drama preemptions abound for the Olympic Games
by | July 23, 2012 | 137 Comments
Sad news for impatient drama viewers, which may be a redundant moniker. What, you can’t just give me my crack and then TAKE IT AWAY. The London Olympics will be taking over some major primetime broadcasting slots, and it looks like dramas will be preempted left and right. Everyone take a deep breath, and stock... More »

Gaksital: Episode 16
by | July 19, 2012 | 207 Comments
Three little words change everything, for hero and villain alike. It’s as frightening to watch Shunji’s descent into darkness as it is uplifting to watch Kang-to finally become a human being. That their mutual paths happen to collide where love and ideology live—well that’s just the cherry on top of my Gaksital sundae.   EPISODE... More »

Gaksital: Episode 15

Woo, the pace just keeps clipping along, and major connections are made, throwing our hero into a whole new level of danger. He’s already treading on thin ice, but this is the trouble with not being an actual superhuman able to leap tall buildings in a single bound, or, yunno, zoom from the scene of... More »

AAAAAAH! SO. GOOD. This episode takes tense to a new level. If you’re a nail-biter, stay away. They’ll be down to the quick halfway through, and then you’ll have to gnaw off your fingers just to keep watching. Save yourself! This secret identity stuff is not for the faint of heart.

Gaksital: Episode 13
by | July 11, 2012 | 113 Comments
The burden of a secret identity starts to take its toll, as our hero struggles to keep juggling all his roles without dropping any crucial balls. ‘Cause in this game, mistakes equal dead people. It presents an interesting dilemma, for a hero to have to decide where to draw the line—if there’s even a line.... More »

Gaksital: Episode 12

We’re back, baby! Yesterday was no fluke. I don’t know who lit a fire under Gaksital’s ass, but imma send a fruit basket. We’re on a roll with heart-stopping action, fantastic angst for our hero, a terrifying breakdown for his best friend, and some fist-pumping badassery from our heroine. I can literally say I couldn’t... More »

Gaksital: Episode 11

Bad! Ass! Gaksital is awesome again, and for that I am greatly relieved. The last couple of episodes had me worried that we were running out of punch—it still had plenty of plot, but there was simply too much laborious maneuvering, with too few character moments to engage my feelings. I enjoy thinking in a... More »

Gaksital: Episode 10
by | June 28, 2012 | 95 Comments
Woot, an episode packed with payoffs and some nice momentum for the romance, which finally starts to gain some traction when Kang-to gets reassigned as Mok Dan’s watchdog. I think it’s time she yanks on that invisible leash and gives Kang-to a little payback. I don’t think I’ll ever get sick of her hating him... More »

Gaksital: Episode 9
by | June 27, 2012 | 66 Comments
There’s a new secret cover in town, and it’s not village idiot but… smiling, charming, singing, fun-loving guy? I suppose it makes sense, given that that’s essentially the opposite of glowery, shouty Kang-to, and it’s a refreshing change to see a different side to him—even if it’s faked. In the absence of actual happy Joo-won,... More »
