Thing vs. Thing: Comic book heroes of sageukland

javabeans: If American comic book-dom is perpetually confronted with the question “Who’s better, Superman or Batman?” then dramaland is equally confronted with the question… “Who’s better, Superman or Batman?” Because really, they sorta all fall into those archetypes. Just also wearing hanbok and manes o’ glory. Okay, with a fair dash of Robin Hood sprinkled... More »

Jeon Woo-chi: Episode 18
by | January 17, 2013 | 14 Comments
There’s distrust brewing everywhere, as the baddies gain the upper hand by splintering our gang with artfully placed misdirection at every turn. Now everyone’s got a hairy eyeball on someone else, which leads to a lot of pointing fingers at all the wrong people for all the wrong reasons. Thankfully our heroine’s still got her... More »

Jeon Woo-chi: Episode 17

Ooh, major roadblocks spring up for our hero, and they’re the most dangerous kind—the kind that threaten to splinter the good guys apart from the inside out. It’s a way of raising the stakes effectively, just when I thought we couldn’t raise them anymore—given that you can’t really outdo high treason or murder. But inasmuch... More »

This episode is buckets of awesome. There are warm fuzzies, heroic moments of triumph, Scooby Gang hijinks, laughs, and flirty looks galore. A new chapter of Jeon Woo-chi’s life begins, as he sets about with a renewed sense of purpose and a mission. It’s both kickass… and teetering on the brink of serious danger.... More »

Yay for the return of fun! Not that last week wasn’t fun, but the more grave direction of the plot meant an appropriately weightier tone. I’m always happier to have the clever little jokes woven into the story, even when the story at large is dire and important, and this episode gives us plenty of... More »

Woo-chi’s day goes from bad to worse as the stakes shoot skyward and the baddies gain the upper hand. On the upside, that means the Scooby gang comes together to match the bad guys scheme-for-scheme. On the downside, that increases everyone’s risk, and not everyone makes it out unscathed.... More »

The stakes kick it up a notch, what with increasing political agitation and the reemergence of some strong foes. This episode’s plot turn adds some heft to the story, which has mostly been a bit light and feel-good up to this point on the Injustice of the Week front. But the villains are getting smarter,...

I love this new chapter of the story—it gives us the best of the legend and all the fun of the character without the mopey, ’cause an imp without oomph is just sad. It finally feels like our Woo-chi has become the Jeon Woo-chi, cocky, righteous bandit with a true purpose, and of course, a... More »

Y’know, I thought last week’s episodes were a marked cut better than they’d been, but THIS episode is pure awesomeness. No-reservations, no-qualifiers awesome. Some of our long-running threads thankfully get dealt with and put away (for now), while we kick off a whole new chapter with a new twist and a ton of possibilities. This... More »

FINALLY. I feel like I’ve been waiting forever for this show to get this good. It turns out, when your hero’s entire motivation is his girl, IT HELPS IF SHE’S AWAKE. Just sayin’, Show; it’s not rocket science. Man, what a difference it makes to have our heroine walking and talking of sound mind, and... More »
