If I Could Turn Back Time [Year in Review, Part 4]
by | December 21, 2012 | 155 Comments
My first year-end review! I was so excited for this opportunity that I decided to watch as many dramas as I could in preparation this year, and all but forced myself to doggedly stick with obvious train wrecks because I figured, “Hey, at least it’ll give me something to write about.” If I learned anything,...

by | December 8, 2012 | 263 Comments
Review extravaganza time! I know: Already? It feels like just the other day I was killing myself to corral all my thoughts in coherent fashion in a monster review of 2011’s dramas, and already it’s time to lose sleep wrangling my thoughts together for 2012. Time sure flies when you’re having fun, or old. Guess... More »

History of the Salaryman: Episode 22 (Final)
by | March 14, 2012 | 104 Comments
It’s been one wild and unforgettable ride, and one I’m loathe to send off into the wide blue yonder out of fear that we’ll never see something quite so spectacular and hilarious again. But all good things must come to an end – and even though nothing in the finale really came as a surprise,... More »

We’re finally here at the penultimate episode, and our characters are in for quite a trial. Gabi’s manipulative ways are in full force as the hammer of justice comes closer and closer to hitting her square on the head (as is well deserved), and Woo-hee proves her mettle in order to fight for what’s right....

History of the Salaryman: Episode 20
by | March 7, 2012 | 123 Comments
Insert any and all superlatives here, this is a show among shows – and this was an episode among episodes. One of the strongest yet in terms of balancing raucous comedy with shock-inducing drama, in fact. Our villains find themselves answerable to the law as well as their own senses of guilt, while our heroes... More »

History of the Salaryman: Episode 19
by | March 6, 2012 | 40 Comments
The funny is back! Granted, the funny never really left, but it’s been taking a backseat the past few episodes in favor of plot development (I know, right?). There’s romance, corporate plotting, and copious expenditures galore as Gabi teeters on the edge of her sanity and our heroines continue to be just as cool as... More »

Bang gets to enjoy a taste of the high life, replete with guyliner and questionable women at his beck and call. Hang-woo stirs the hornet’s nest that is Bang And Friends, Gabi gets greedy, and Yeo-chi contemplates murder via blunt force trauma. What does it all mean? Maybe that Hang-woo needs to stop romancin’ and... More »

Finally an essential secret is revealed, leaving Yeo-chi stewing in her rage with unknown – and probably epic – possibilities. Hang-woo is brought face to face with a past it seems like he’d rather have left alone, and poor Bang just can’t be left to go about his business. Luckily he’s got some help from... More »
