Thousand Day Promise: Episode 20 (Final)

Blarg$@*&#()$%_)^#*%. I’m pretty sure this finale broke me. I mean, I knew going in what kind of show it was, but there’s a difference between having the detached knowledge that you’ll cry and actually sobbing out a river of tears. The show bowed out at a series high (19.8%) after flagging a bit in recent... More »

Thousand Day Promise: Episode 16

Oof. Hold on to your hats, folks, this one’s a doozy. But a good kind of doozy, especially for a show where not a lot changes from episode to episode, since we’re focusing more on the little changes from day to day and the characters’ reactions to the illness, which is taking up a larger...

Thousand Day Promise: Episode 15
by | December 5, 2011 | 58 Comments
A mostly contemplative episode, as the dust settles in each household. A cameo from another member of the Kim Soo-hyun family brings Song Chang-eui by, and it looks like he’ll stick around for a little while, which is awesome considering he’s pretty much the funniest thing about this episode. I can’t say anything good about... More »
