If you thought Hidden Identity was all about a brooding bad-ass Bummie you’d be, well, mostly right. But there’s still so much more to this slick action-thriller, especially when it comes to the Investigation 5 Unit and the fearless man who leads them. It’s not easy being the one in charge of secretly protecting a... More »

Hidden Identity: Episode 1
by | June 18, 2015 | 75 Comments
Hidden Identity is slick, well-produced, impeccably acted, and delivers lots of action and angst in its premiere episode. Our hero is your typical disillusioned cop who’s lost someone he cares about, but there’s enough mystery in his backstory to make me wonder if I’ve got him pegged all wrong. The setup is compelling, and I’m... More »

Shadows, subterfuge, and fisticuffs: What’s not to like? I was curious to see how Kim Bum (Goddess of Fire Jung-yi), once so adorably round-cheeked, would transition into a badass action-fighter role, and I’m glad to see that he takes it on with style (even if I can’t quite take the facial scruff seriously on him....
