Yong-pal: Episode 9
by | September 4, 2015 | 171 Comments
The relationship between our two friends turned lovers takes a huge leap in an episode filled with heartwarming moments interspersed with ominously murderous ones, which is about as good a blend as you get in my book. Tae-hyun and Yeo-jin have no idea what’s in store for them, but if it were up to Do-joon... More »

Yong-pal: Episode 8

There’s no dearth of feelings in this episode, and jealousy is to blame as a catalyst for most of them. But everyone who formerly wanted a piece of Yeo-jin now thinks they can do without her, even our hero—though he never sacrifices who he is at her expense, and even when he tries, the results...

Injuries need time to recover, and this episode slows things down so that hearts can heal before they’re broken once more. I’m talking about our hearts, because this show continues to take us on a never-ending emotional ride. It helps to know people in high places when you need medical attention, because hell if anyone... More »

So good. So very, very good. Everyone wants to have the ice princess for their own this episode, but some couldn’t care less whether she’s still breathing at the end of it. Even though Yeo-jin’s foes view her as a prize to be won, there’s no certainty as to whom you can trust in this... More »

Our hero will quickly learn that movin’ on up isn’t all that it’s cracked up to be when the end of the road is hiding a massive secret. Being privy to why the heiress has been kept in a three-year long sleep ought to come with its own advantages, even if it’s just to take... More »

Yong-pal: Episode 3

I like it. I really, really like it. Yong-pal is sleek, stylish, but most of all, human—and it never gets so caught up in its beautiful and sometimes haunting imagery that it forgets what it wants to say. It’s just the opposite actually, since the visuals work to add depth to the narrative, which isn’t... More »

Yong-pal: Episode 2

Even if we knew that our hero wouldn’t be able to keep his nighttime activities a secret forever, I bet no one would have guessed that his alias would be under threat so soon in this series. Knowledge is power, especially when it’s given to someone who knows what a dangerous card it is and... More »

Meet Yong-pal, just your average doc who treats the wealthy by day and the dregs of life by night. He’s the guy everyone in and out of the hospital turns to in their most desperate time of need, and you can rest assured that he’s got everyone else’s surgical record beat. If you should ever...

The sun sets on nighttime errand doctor Yong-pal
by | July 28, 2015 | 62 Comments
I have to say, Yong-pal has some clever designers working on its promos, with posters that are a lot more interesting than the standard cast four-shot. When so many shows in dramaland boast similar (sometimes nearly interchangeable) posters, I’m always happy to get something a little different. The drama’s first poster trapped “Sleeping Beauty” heroine... More »

It’s a bird! It’s Healer! No, it’s Yong-pal! Who says secret night errand boys get all the fun? Apparently doctors can have code names and rooftop chases too, and if this second teaser is any indication, this doc will be getting into his fair share of scrapes and seeing plenty of action. Is it too... More »
