The bloody battle for the people’s hearts begins in Rebel
by | January 16, 2017 | 43 Comments
I spent months only seeing Yoon Kyun-sang (Doctors) as a giant baby who loves fluffy kitties in Three Meals a Day, so it’s a little jarring to see him covered in blood and making battle cries. But given his experience as a warrior in sageuk epic Six Flying Dragons, I think he’ll be in his... More »

Kim Sang-joong considers being Rebel Hong Gil-dong’s father
by | October 26, 2016 | 18 Comments

Joo-won, Kim Kang-woo, Kim Sang-joong work Overtime fighting aliens

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 »

Evidently then answer is, a lot, and it can certainly tell a lot more, if given the opportunity. We get... More »

by | December 7, 2014 | 24 Comments
That doesn’t look like a bloody good time, does it? This is the episode where things we’ve come to known start to unravel at our feet. Not only do our characters start to suspect the truth that they’ve told, but I’m starting to doubt some of the things we’ve seen in past episodes. Bad Guys... More »

Bad Guys: Episode 9

Now that’s a look from a guy who’s not messing around. I didn’t think an episode that takes us through yet even more answers would be all that suspenseful, but if there’s anything I’ve learned about Bad Guys is that it can churn out 66 solid minutes of thrills and surprises. We flesh out Goo-tak’s... More »
