It definitely feels like we’re at the peak of the first half of our story, as every single conflict comes to a head in one gruesome trial, with one side willing to die to expose the truth, and the other determined to kill if they have to, to keep it hidden. One guess as to... More »

girlfriday: Uh… so apparently Secret Door is suddenly replacing Kim Yoo-jung with… Yoon So-hee (Marriage Not Dating, Let’s Eat)??? javabeans: What! Why? That’s the stupidest thing. The articles are saying that this is a “baton pass” between child role to adult, but my bullshit meter is flying up to 11, for so many reasons. First... More »

Ack, is it already time to start shattering the prince’s trust in his father? I know that on a basic level this is what the entire show is about, but is it asking for too much to delay the process for as long as humanly possible? What if we run out of tears—what will you... More »

Secret Door: Episode 10

This episode is all about parenthood, and in particular, the fraught territory of the father-son relationship. And yet it’s not even about Yeongjo and Sun’s increasingly conflicted relationship—at least, not directly. Everything’ll lead to that relationship in the end, but on the surface today’s plotlines are about other characters’ parental relationships, which then serve as... More »

Will everybody stop breaking the prince’s heart already? Is that so much to ask? …yes, you say? Okay fine, so I know this is a story whose very premise necessitates breaking the prince’s heart and fracturing his trust in everyone near and dear to him.

The murder plot thickens, and our very tiny team of good guys gets smart about the “secret” part of this secret investigation. If only we could also keep the net of baddies from closing in around them though, because at some point you have to ask how investigating the facts of past murders can compete... More »

Secret Door: Episode 5

A rich episode for character development, and it’s surprisingly full of moments of sincerity in a world that’s populated by so many glib, false-speaking snakes. We have this in multiple relationships, but most significantly in our central, most heart-tugging one between the king and the prince. The problem with them, though, isn’t necessarily whether these... More »
