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....

The Baeksang Arts Awards really snuck up on me this year.

There’s a light at the end of every drama tunnel, but sometimes it’s how we get there that matters more than how bright that light turns out to be. I wish I wasn’t so conflicted over this finale or the last few episodes, because I truly did love this show in the early stages, and... More »
