by | April 8, 2014 | 20 Comments
JTBC is planning their next Monday-Tuesday drama offering, Yoo-na’s Street, and Kim Ok-bin (Sword and Flower, Thirst) has been cast as the lead, Kang Yoo-na. She’ll star opposite Lee Hee-joon—aw, I like him. (His most recent dramas are God of the Office and Jeon Woo-chi, but it was You Who Rolled In Unexpectedly that was... More »

And just when you thought you’d seen your last wormhole, here’s another set of time-travelers, coming your way. Jung Jae-young (Our Sunhi), Daniel Choi (School 2013), and Kim Ok-bin (Sword and Flower) star in a new sci-fi thriller movie called Eleven O’Clock, about a set of researchers who travel ahead one day in the future...

Sword and Flower: Episode 20 (Final)
by | September 8, 2013 | 143 Comments
I’ve had pretty bad luck with finales lately (in that I’m starting to forget what it feels like to watch a good one), and while the ending for Sword and Flower doesn’t strike like lightning out of a clear blue sky, it does serve as a textbook example of everything that makes viewers wary to...

Sword and Flower: Episode 19
by | September 7, 2013 | 65 Comments
Our princess’ future with her eternally loving bodyguard is at stake, but you’d hardly know it by the way everyone moseys around this hour. A literal war happens off-screen in the time it takes for Mu-young to not make a decision, which gives the Slim Bad of the show all the time he needs to... More »

Sword and Flower: Episode 18
by | September 3, 2013 | 35 Comments
There’s a bit of cuteness in an otherwise bleak hour as everyone’s lives just go from bad to worse. Mu-young faces a tough decision going forward—will she learn to let go, or die holding on?—while our hero tries to give her a third (and some would say better) option. Whether they’ll have a hand in... More »

Sword and Flower: Episode 17
by | August 31, 2013 | 34 Comments
It’s our princess’s last chance to exact her revenge, and if she doesn’t succeed, she’s sure as hell going to go down trying. This episode is an improvement without actually improving all that much—it just makes it easier to forget most of what didn’t work when the payoffs are good. I think I’d hate this... More »

Sword and Flower: Episode 16
by | August 30, 2013 | 34 Comments
So much of this story makes so little sense sometimes, leaving me with a sinking feeling that while the bigger plot movements might’ve been charted out, the connections between those dots were mostly left to chance. Thus, we get an episode where some things just happen. Why? If you know, congratulations! You’re either not me,... More »

Sword and Flower: Episode 15
by | August 29, 2013 | 34 Comments
It’s a little funny that when one character learns a life-altering secret in this show, every other character just so happens to find out at the same time. A few characters do get left behind (considering that the story would end if they found out), but for the most part I’m hesitatingly hopeful in saying... More »

Sword and Flower: Episode 14

There’s plenty going on this episode, the least of which includes questionable crushes, princess-saving, maniacal plotting, battles, and everything else not in that list being on fire. It’s nice to have some action to spice things up, even if Choong keeps sticking his neck out to save a girl he can’t even bring himself to... More »

Sword and Flower: Episode 13

Our princess forges some unlikely alliances in her quest for revenge while our hero is forced to do some soul-searching when it comes to his residual feelings for her, which unsurprisingly spring to the surface when he’s faced with her cross-dressing doppelgänger. Yes, we’re still exploring that plot to the fullest, but I think Sword... More »

Sword and Flower: Episode 12

Our princess learns that being a boy among men is tough work, especially when our hero makes it his mission to find out her true identity—while his pesky half-brother tries to play politics like he isn’t mildly psychotic. It’s nice to see that Choong has retained that core we came to love even with his... More »
