Yeo Jin-gu Ah, tvN’s sci-fi mystery project Circle just got more interesting, with a leading role going out to Yeo Jin-gu (Jackpot) for what would be his first (technically) adult role; he’s been transitioning out of child roles for a while, but actually turns twenty this year. The drama recently put out an offer to... More »

Kim Kang-woo may be returning with another drama soon—hopefully one that’s much better than his last (Goodbye Mr. Black, sigh)—and has been offered a new sci-fi mystery drama Circle, which is being planned for a run on tvN. I’m glad to see a premise that sounds a bit different from the same old: Circle will... More »

by | August 8, 2016 | 30 Comments
Alien invasion isn’t really the first thing that came to mind when I heard that Joo-won (Yong-pal) was signing on to a movie called Overtime. I was picturing an overworked salaryman with a scary boss, not a secret rebel army out to take back the country from evil alien invaders. But that’s the premise of... More »

Goodbye, Goodbye Mr. Black. I can’t say I’ll miss you, or that I’ll think of you, that is, unless you do something wildly horrific to our main characters and make me come back with a new name to hunt you down and get my revenge. But you won’t do that, right? We’ve come too far... More »

We’re almost at the end! While I’d like to tell you all that my excitement is because we’re nearing the climax of a thrilling ride and about to get answers to the questions that have kept us guessing all along, I can’t quite bring myself to see the glass being that half-full. Mostly I’m glad... More »

Is there finally, finally some happiness on the horizon for Mr. Black? I can’t decide if happy times are a bad omen and I should be feeling dread for what’s around the bend in finale week, but you know what—I’m going to enjoy it while it lasts, even if it’s just for one episode. Today... More »

The heat gets turned up for everyone and a lot of plotlines hurtle toward crisis and/or confrontation, which may suck for them but at least makes for an eventful hour. We’re heading into the final hours of the show, and some of the story threads start to get tied up (or around our characters’ necks,... More »

Well I’m glad someone in this relationship is tired of playing the avoidance game. It’s pretty fun to see Black on this side for once, trying to woo Swan back and convince her that they belong together. After what he put her through, I think a little wooing isn’t too much to ask for. Besides,... More »

Goodbye Mr. Black: Episode 15

It’s a pretty satisfying episode today, with solid losses and gains on both sides. And while I’m used to the conflict swinging back and forth in favor of the good guys one moment and the bad guys the next, I like that today’s reversals get an added boost by having an unexpected twist. At this... More »
