Lee Jong-hyuk drops by Master’s Sun to play So Ji-sub’s rival
by | September 10, 2013 | 102 Comments
javabeans: We’ve had quite a number of cameo appearances already in Master’s Sun, and for the most part they’ve been fine. Well-used, mostly, though I wouldn’t say they were anything to get excited about. Just familiar faces to have fun recognizing as day players, like Seo Hyo-rim (Scent of a Woman) as the fianc√©e-for-a-day, or... More »

Oh phew, this series ends on a high note. I was worried when yesterday’s episode took a precipitous dip into crazy dramatic territory, but the resolution is full of sweet and cute, which is really what Dating Agency Cyrano is all about. It’s a big relief to see the show getting back to the rom-com,... More »

Ah, there are a few nice twists in this episode, zipping us nicely into the final stretch. My favorite aspect of this show is its quick, light touch, which comes as a breath of fresh air. It’s also the reason why this show doesn’t get under my skin and doesn’t feel addictive in the way... More »

Dating Agency Cyrano: Episode 13

Despite a pretty expected progression into our final arc, the path to romance is populated with enough meddlers, interlopers, and busybodies to make the trip a fun one. What’s the point of being the brilliant boss-man when everyone’s out plotting behind your back? It’s a tangle of intercutting motives and motivations, but fun in a... More »

Honesty is the name of the game this time around, and we have that to thank for the swift advancement in the main plot and romance. In a world populated with too many people harboring secrets and hiding their real feelings and putting on fronts, it’s refreshing to have one open book to read, isn’t... More »

Dating Agency Cyrano: Episode 11

Ah, clues get filled in about the mysterious past haunting several of our characters, and why there’s enough guilt, resentment, and blame to power a small city. Maybe a really unpleasant city. In any case, I was thinking this show would have to produce something pretty darned compelling to make the reveal worth all the... More »

Ah, time for the major complication to show up and throw our agency into a tizzy. Muahaha. Not that I haven’t been enjoying the breezy romance-of-the-weeks thus far, but there was a level of emotional conflict in the inherent Cyrano premise that hadn’t been integrated into the plot just yet, and really, you can’t have...

The case is short but sweet today, and showcases some really nice character beats for everyone. The show continues to use the weekly cases as vehicles for our main cast’s developments, while managing to get us invested with the guests who come in and out rather fleetingly. I’m liking the little steps we’re seeing our... More »

Dating Agency Cyrano: Episode 8

This episode wraps up our chef romance with a particularly satisfying conclusion, inasmuch as a revenge payoff adds an extra dose of gratification. We’re also getting glimpses of Byung-hoon’s past trauma, the details of which remain cryptic for now but are at least a cut more interesting than a mere case of thwarted first love.... More »
