Joseon Gunman: Episode 10
by | July 24, 2014 | 28 Comments
I think Soo-in earned her spotlight today, didn’t she? It’s a jam-packed episode full of revelations and character development, all of them in welcome directions. Some people are pushed to their breaking points while others find a way back from the ledge and come to a sense of peace. What I find even more compelling,... More »

Joseon Gunman: Episode 9
by | July 23, 2014 | 50 Comments
Secrets are made, kept, and also discovered—and not a moment too soon, because often what it takes to keep the tension in a plot going strong isn’t the continued stressor of preserving the secret, but blowing it wide open and dealing with the fallout. It’s much more interesting to explore the “What next?” conundrum than... More »

Joseon Gunman: Episode 8

The identity game continues as our hero is tested to keep his cover and risk blowing it at every turn to save a loved one, determined to prove that he can protect both at the same time. Which of course he can, if I have anything to say about it. I know I know, I... More »

Joseon Gunman: Episode 7

Family is the name of the cat-and-mouse game in this episode, as it propels the action toward its cliffhanger of an ending (this drama sure does have the cliffhanger format down, doesn’t it?). But perhaps the actual question should be: Who’s the cat and who’s the mouse? Our hero has been carefully plotting his revenge... More »

Joseon Gunman: Episode 6

If he’s telling me to come and get it, I can most certainly oblige. Yes, please, and thank you. The identity game is in full swing, with pretty much everybody questioning the new guy’s resemblance to the old guy, even as they know in their heads that it’s pretty much impossible for them to be...

Joseon Gunman: Episode 5

Gah, nobody beats Lee Jun-ki for expressive eyes. The painnnn, you can just feel it through his gaze. This is an episode that covers a fair bit of setup ground, because we’re starting anew as our hero puts his revenge mission into motion. I’m thankful that the show has done such a compelling job of... More »

Joseon Gunman: Episode 4

We’re here! With the requisite backdrop set and the conflict established, we now get to the meat of the present-day story, and I’m just about hopping in anticipation to see where we go from here. I suppose we can think of the first four episodes as the “childhood portion” of many a sageuk drama, only... More »

Joseon Gunman: Episode 3

Joseon Gunman continues to deliver just what I want. That’s an interesting thing because you would think that getting exactly what you wish for could be something of a letdown when you know what’s going to happen—we’re still establishing conflicts and heading toward revenge motivation. But in the way that a good romantic comedy can... More »

Joseon Gunman: Episode 2

More good stuff! I don’t know what appeals to me more, the action, the romance, the humor, the political intrigue, or the revenge looming on the horizon—but as far as I’m concerned that’s a good thing since it means Joseon Gunman is doing an effective job juggling all of its elements. Episode 2 had a... More »

I wasn’t disappointed! And given how ridiculously excited I was for Joseon Gunman, surely that says a lot, doesn’t it? I had expectations, they were unreasonably high, and they were met. The show is similar to The Princess’s Man (the obvious comparison, given the PD connection), but I mean that only in the best of... More »

Oh Snap! Joseon finger guns
by | June 19, 2014 | 54 Comments
Okay, the finger guns may be cheesily literal, but how cute is the cast of Joseon Gunman, pictured here at their June 19 press conference? I love that they obviously all called each other up to color-coordinate their outfits in advance. One more week! The drama premieres on June 25. Tags: Han Joo-wan, Jeon Hye-bin,... More »
