Oh, I like this better. The Korean remake of CBS’s FBI profiling drama Criminal Minds is still courting Lee Jun-ki (Moon Lovers: Scarlet Heart Ryeo) to headline, but Kim Ah-joong must’ve turned down the starring role opposite him, because an offer is now out to Moon Chae-won (Goodbye Mr. Black). This is a pairing I’d... More »

Moon Chae-won It’s disappointing that Moon Chae-won (Goodbye Mr. Black) has turned down Bride of the Water God 2017, but I couldn’t quite picture her starring opposite Nam Joo-hyuk (Weightlifting Fairy Kim Bok-ju), who is still the lead contender to play the water god, so perhaps it’s all for the best. A spinoff of a... More »

Goodbye Mr. Black: Episode 20 (Final)

Goodbye, Goodbye Mr. Black. I can’t say I’ll miss you, or that I’ll think of you, that is, unless you do something wildly horrific to our main characters and make me come back with a new name to hunt you down and get my revenge. But you won’t do that, right? We’ve come too far... More »

We’re almost at the end! While I’d like to tell you all that my excitement is because we’re nearing the climax of a thrilling ride and about to get answers to the questions that have kept us guessing all along, I can’t quite bring myself to see the glass being that half-full. Mostly I’m glad... More »

Is there finally, finally some happiness on the horizon for Mr. Black? I can’t decide if happy times are a bad omen and I should be feeling dread for what’s around the bend in finale week, but you know what—I’m going to enjoy it while it lasts, even if it’s just for one episode. Today... More »

The heat gets turned up for everyone and a lot of plotlines hurtle toward crisis and/or confrontation, which may suck for them but at least makes for an eventful hour. We’re heading into the final hours of the show, and some of the story threads start to get tied up (or around our characters’ necks,... More »

Well I’m glad someone in this relationship is tired of playing the avoidance game. It’s pretty fun to see Black on this side for once, trying to woo Swan back and convince her that they belong together. After what he put her through, I think a little wooing isn’t too much to ask for. Besides,... More »

It’s a pretty satisfying episode today, with solid losses and gains on both sides. And while I’m used to the conflict swinging back and forth in favor of the good guys one moment and the bad guys the next, I like that today’s reversals get an added boost by having an unexpected twist. At this... More »

It’s a good episode for the women in our drama, who both find themselves stuck between a rock and a hard place. Or maybe it’s more like an evil bastard and a truth they’d rather not face. In any case, I like it when Swan takes an active role in the story, especially because I’m... More »
