by | October 27, 2015 | 43 Comments
JTBC’s new manhwa adaptation Awl premiered this weekend, and I was impressed with the result: a thoughtfully written, sharply directed story about everyday workers fighting for fair treatment in an unfair corporate world. It’s no surprise that it’s being touted as the next Misaeng, because it has a very similar focus on the plight of... More »

The Virus: Episode 1
by | March 4, 2013 | 32 Comments
OCN delivers in this thrilling new series that is sure to turn you into hypochondriac – it’s sort of made me one already. It’s not as dark and apocalyptic as I thought it would be, but it’s still frightening to watch a mysterious disease kill and spread rapidly from person to person. The Virus takes cues... More »
