Gong Hyo-jin and Jo In-sung consider Noh Hee-kyung melodrama
by | January 9, 2014 | 106 Comments
Huh, I wouldn’t have pegged Jo In-sung for a second go-around with writer Noh Hee-kyung right away, especially since That Winter, The Wind Blows was his last project. But it looks like a reunion is in the works. He’s being courted to headline her new drama It’s Okay, It’s Love for the coming year alongside... More »

You’ll recognize many familiar faces, not just from the other festivals and ceremonies this... More »

Master’s Sun: Episode 17 (Final)

We’ve reached the end of another Hong sisters drama, and I’m happy to say there are no sudden whiplash-inducing turns in the final hour. I guess on the flipside there are few surprises left in store, but if those are the options, I’ll stick to what’s tried and true and save my neck, thank you... More »

Master’s Sun: Episode 16

We’re almost at the end! Even though I’d never argue that the one-episode extension did this show (or any show) good, I did find myself pleasantly surprised with how the show seems to feel on track with its pacing as we head into the finale. Granted it wasn’t exactly a fast pace and I do... More »

Master’s Sun: Episode 15

It feels like a mini-finale of sorts, resolving one of our long-running mysteries and affording our characters some closure. I like that we get to put the necklace-kidnapping-twins plot behind us now, because while it served its purpose in moving us along, it’s also nice to get that lesser conflict out of the way before...

Master’s Sun: Episode 14

It’s a good thing we have two episodes this week, because last week sure felt like a tease, didn’t it? This is not the first time I’ve wondered how I ever made it through the one-episode-a-week format of American television, but it definitely is the most potent reminder in recent months, if not years. I... More »

Longest week-and-a-day ever. Let’s get to it, shall we? Is Joo-gun a little dead, half-dead, almost dead, or a total goner? Now that we’re about to find out the answer, I’m not sure I really want to be shoved out of my denial. I like it here. It’s safe here. A note: Master’s Sun has... More »

Ohhhhh boy. This one’s gonna be a beast. I feel like we all need a big session of messy cathartic emotion-wrangling after this doozy of an episode, maybe with lots of booze and tears. Definitely booze. Well, you can say this for sure: The Hong sisters really outdid themselves with this one. I’ll… leave it... More »

Thank goodness the new ep finally rolled around so we can all stop rewinding the end of the last one, yes? I continue to feel giddy over the developments in this show, which are not only hitting consistent beats of satisfaction but accomplishing them with a nicely paced acceleration. There have been so many shows... More »

Master’s Sun: Episode 10

This is a great episode. Our couple spends the hour circling around the giant pink elephant—er, dinosaur—in the room, and tossing out all manner of strange ways in which to keep their relationship the same… despite the fact that they each know it will never be the same. Because that’s what happens when you close... More »

Master’s Sun: Episode 9
by | September 4, 2013 | 266 Comments
The romance really kicked into high gear with last week’s episodes, and today doesn’t disappoint. Feelings start to interfere with the business arrangement, so our hero starts to look for creative ways to balance his books and his heart. Because math solves everything, right? The denial, it is strong with this one.   SONG OF... More »
