Gap-dong: Episode 2
by | April 12, 2014 | 39 Comments
Gap-dong turned in another solid episode, full of shady characters and tension between its good-guy protagonists—although I’m a little wary of calling our assy chief detective Chul-gon a full-on protagonist just yet. With our main characters’ storylines established, this episode gave us a chance to see more of the secondary characters, namely the psycho-on-the-rise Tae-oh,... More »

Gap-dong: Episode 1
by | April 11, 2014 | 65 Comments
I’m up to my neck in premieres! Today is Gap-dong’s turn, and we get a jam-packed hour of tension and mystery. Or rather, seventy minutes of it, since tvN cannot for the life of it exercise restraint or appreciate the beauty of a tight edit. (Seriously, I do tend to really enjoy tvN’s programming but...

Mystery-thriller drama Gap-dong’s main posters
by | March 14, 2014 | 34 Comments
Gap-dong sure is going for the sinister factor, isn’t it? Not that a show about a serial killer should be aiming for something else, but they’re definitely piling on the dark and disturbing with their main poster and the character posters (which are essentially the same thing). As we saw in the previews for the... More »

Character previews abound with tension for Gap-dong
by | March 10, 2014 | 30 Comments
Gap-dong, the serial-killer-returns drama from tvN, has released a set of character teasers to whet our appetites for the thriller, and while they’re only bite-sized previews, they do quite a nice job capturing the intensity and fierceness driving the characters. The cast is led by Yoon Sang-hyun as the cop who wants to avenge his... More »

Kim Min-jung and Kim Ji-won consider thriller Gap-dong
by | January 20, 2014 | 27 Comments
I’m not sure if there’s going to be any room for romance in tvN’s new serial killer drama Gap-dong, but producers are hoping to pair leading man frontrunner Yoon Sang-hyun (I Hear Your Voice) with Kim Min-jung (Queen of the Night), who’s now being courted to play the heroine. Nobody has signed on yet, but... More »

2013 SBS Drama Awards

New Year’s Eve was the big night for the SBS Drama Awards (and KBS as well, which will be up next), and Lee Bo-young came out on top for one of the year’s unexpected successes, I Hear Your Voice. (I say unexpected because the drama was given its timeslot hastily when another show fell through... More »

Heirs: Episode 20 (Final)
by | December 12, 2013 | 451 Comments
The end is here. Not that it’s a surprise, but the Heirs finale doesn’t step outside its prescribed frame for even a second, so mostly what we get is an hour to wrap everything up neatly and send our characters on their way. Truthfully it wasn’t really a drama that had twenty episodes of story... More »

Heirs: Episode 19
by | December 11, 2013 | 201 Comments
Finale week means we’re wrapping up loose ends, and one nice side effect is that angst steps aside and lets cuteness and humor a moment in the spotlight. I won’t say it didn’t take forever and a day (or that everything makes the most sense, plotwise), but neither am I about to look a gift... More »

Heirs: Episode 18
by | December 5, 2013 | 377 Comments
Breaking up is hard to do, especially when you’re not really broken up. Our couple spends a lot of energy in being apart-but-together and together-but-apart, and I can’t even tell you which is worse. Let’s just say there are lots of tears. But in better news, when Tyrannical Daddy digs his heels in further, it... More »

Heirs: Episode 17

Everybody, meet Rock Bottom. Rock Bottom, everybody. He’ll be sticking around with us for the next hour, making sure Tan suffers appropriately for daring to dream the impossible dream, which is to say, a relationship with the girl he likes. Too bad Despot Dad has other things on the agenda, like tyranny and misery for... More »

There’s a twist or two in today’s proceedings, as both brothers smarten up and batten down the hatches in anticipation of warring with Dad. We’ve been building up to this showdown all series long, and with futures—and hearts—on the line, the stakes climb ever higher in this game of family strife. It’s a bit of... More »
