High-octane thrills for fugitive Gong Yoo in The Suspect
by | December 1, 2013 | 43 Comments
Sure, it’s a pretty timeworn formula to make your blockbuster action movie about a super spy who’s been left to fend for himself in a strange land, but hell, I’ve seen the Bourne trilogy more times than I can count, so it’s not like I’d say no to slick, pulse-pounding thrills. Plus, Gong Yoo. His... More »

Well, it ends. Listen, my mother said that if I don’t have nice things to say… waitaminute, my mother never said that. Let the ragefest begin! This show is basically a lesson in math. Turns out you can have great parts, but the sum can add up to less than those parts. I know! I... More »

Well it only took twelve episodes, but I finally love an episode of this show without reservation. Part of me is wistful at the what-could-have-been, and part of me is just grateful it came at all. It’s an episode full of emotional payoffs, clever connections, and lots and lots of fuzzy, funny warmth. Tags: Baek... More »

On the heels of one big confusing realization comes another one, and our girl is left reeling with her head turned upside-down and around and totally unsure of what’s what. For the first time, I felt some sympathy for what it must feel like to be Da-ran, caught in the emotional in-between along with Kyung-joon... More »
