My Secret Hotel: Episode 10
by | September 27, 2014 | 66 Comments
This is an episode packed with character developments (and regressions…) and focuses largely on the love triangle of Sung-gyum and the newlyweds. The male posturing continues, ranging from comedic and petty to crushing, and more than one heart is trodden on as things come to a head. Gestures only pay off when there’s already understanding,...

Sung-gyum discovers that Hae-young isn’t just a part of Sang-hyo’s past, but her present, too. He’s not about to give up pursuing her, though — and neither is Hae-young, who’s ready to redeem himself from his past mistakes. We finally learn what happened in Las Vegas seven years ago that caused them to break up... More »

So far at The Secret Hotel, we have: one definite murder, two possible murders, several serious suspects, an elopement, a marriage, and far too many secrets to count. New clues point to new suspects, but also keep raising more questions and widening the web of players. We take a trip away from the hotel this... More »

My Secret Hotel: Episode 6
by | September 6, 2014 | 52 Comments
The mystery as it stands is still being constructed: Alibis, motives, alliances and relationships between characters shift and change, keeping the central mystery of Hwang’s death as mysterious as ever. The focus of this hour skewed almost entirely to the romance, with about 6.5% to the mystery. I actually have no complaints; even though it’s... More »

The mystery takes a backseat as we focus on Sang-hyo and Hae-young’s relationship, particularly what happened between them in Las Vegas. But can the past be put aside in order for Sang-hyo to find a way to save the reputation of The Secret Hotel — and her job? Sung-gyum continues to find out all he... More »

The investigation takes the forefront this hour and there’s progress on our mystery, even if it’s lateral rather than forward. We knew Hwang was shady, but now we find out how shady everyone else is, too. The classic “closed circle of suspects” element gives it all an Agatha Christie feel, which I think the show... More »

As the investigation begins to deepen, it looks like the dead body played an important role in all our leads’ lives — now it’s just a matter of finding out... More »

(Hi everyone! I’m going to be helping odilettante cover this show — let’s hope it ends as well as it started. Please look after me, and enjoy the ride!) What a great opening week: My Secret Hotel is hitting all my soft spots — Yoo Inna, strong and sassy heroines, Yoo Inna, sympathetic non-jerkfacey heroes,... More »

tvN kicks off their “killing romance” with My Secret Hotel, and there’s definitely plenty of secrets to go around for everyone: dead bodies falling from the sky; past lovers making unexpected appearances; assistant managers who continually go missing; and, of course, “what happens in Vegas, stays in Vegas.” What’s not a secret are the delightful...

My Secret Hotel’s love triangle gets into its groove
by | August 12, 2014 | 54 Comments
Another set of new dramas is heading our way next week, and I’m terribly eager to watch the first episode of tvN’s new Monday-Tuesday drama My Secret Hotel, mostly out of plain curiosity to see what a “killing romance” is, and how they settle on the tone of the genre-mashup between murder mystery and romantic...
