This week has been a surprising one with sinking ships and various triumphs over evil, but I’m not yet sure the right people are on the job.

We’re given a more reflective episode, taking a moment to contextualize Eun-bi as herself living Eun-byul’s life. The plot thickens as Eun-bi becomes more involved in solving Eun-byul’s mystery. With the distinction between the twins in place, relationships begin to complicate while also illuminating the hidden details of Soo-in’s death. It’s a complex sentiment of... More »

We’re homing in on... More »

We put Eun-byul’s mystery slightly on hold to focus on Eun-bi, and rightfully so. The somber tone of the episode gives more insight into our heroine’s inner struggles, her guilt, and her desires. As the secret seeps through the cracks of Eun-bi’s act, we come to realize the weight of her sister’s identity on her... More »

Does a girl really have to choose between these two? Or is this some kind of cosmic reward for living through a really crappy childhood? Because in that case, can’t she keep them both?
