Scholar Who Walks the Night: Episode 6
by | July 23, 2015 | 171 Comments
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
by | July 22, 2015 | 112 Comments
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...

First script read for Scholar Who Walks the Night
by | May 18, 2015 | 78 Comments
Script reads usually aren’t that exciting, save for the fact that in this instance, there was a time just last month when I was convinced this show would never finish casting and get to this point. I mean, there’s casting drama and then there’s Scholar Who Walks the Night. But hey, we’re here now, and... More »
