Scholar Who Walks the Night: Episode 8
by | July 30, 2015 | 177 Comments
It’s not the most smoothly executed show, but I like that the story gains some momentum today, with a major development in our conspiracy-to-uncover-the-conspiracy plot that actually ties everyone together rather nicely. By which I mean torturously, with many lives on the line. Do you think if I started a drinking game for whenever Yang-sun... More »

Scholar Who Walks the Night: Episode 7

We’ve got a couple great hero characters in play here, working their way toward a grand fight to do the right thing and defeat evil, and I count it fortunate that I love both our male lead characters, for different reasons. They both marshal their forces together and prepare to charge forward, but you can’t... More »

Scholar Who Walks the Night: Episode 6

I really love the array of Lee Yubi’s swoon faces in this drama. They’re so blatantly adoring, or in this case, mad at herself for swooning while swooning. It’s too cute. Everyone’s on a collision course today, and it’s vampire against vampire in a battle to get to our heroine first. The episode speeds by... More »

Scholar Who Walks the Night: Episode 5

Aw, the vampire has a heart. I don’t know if it pumps blood or keeps him alive, but today it starts to pang him—at least emotionally, which is the more interesting version anyway. And yes, right now it’s providing more pain than loving satisfaction, but we’re working up our way to that. First the cold... More »

Lordy, I know vampires are a tease, but I don’t know how our heroine is going to keep surviving encounters like this with her heart intact. Scholar Who Walks the Night continues to zoom by at a brisk pace with dense plot and plenty of romance to keep us on our toes, and today we... More »

Okay, now that the plot is in place and the drama has settled into its groove, I feel like we’ve got a good handle on what this drama is and will continue to be. I’m finding Scholar Who Walks the Night to be fast-paced, light, with a healthy dollop of cheese—it’s a little gooey in... More »

I like! Scholar Who Walks the Night is a fun mix of fantasy and romance that’s well executed and sticks to the basics — a strong central character who’s more than human but struggles to be more human than anyone. I’m also happy to say that I like our heroine, who has the harder job... More »

Scholar Who Walks the Night: Episode 1
by | July 8, 2015 | 141 Comments
It’s an intense first episode, with not a moment wasted—this is an hour jam-packed with action, plot, and emotion. My biggest worry heading into Scholar Who Walks the Night was that it would be a cheesy kind of vampire-fantasy, because vamps (and monsters and ghouls) are tricky that way: Well-handled, they can be the stuff...
