My Secret Hotel: Episode 16 (Final)
by | October 18, 2014 | 60 Comments
It’s here: the end, with all its answers. The mystery of Papa Jo’s death now unraveled, the big questions that have been piling up remain: Who killed Hwang and Young-mi? Why? Where is that misbegotten necklace? Will people stop moping and acting like kids, and grow up? Why did Hae-young lie, dammit? Will Jung-eun get... More »

My Secret Hotel: Episode 15
by | October 16, 2014 | 17 Comments
Secrets aren’t safe when everyone seems to be hiding around the corner, but the good news is that we (and Sung-gyum) finally learn who killed Sung-gyum’s father. We also learn who killed Young-mi and Hwang, although the jury is still out as to whether that’s not just another cover-up for the truth. As for as... More »

My Secret Hotel: Episode 14
by | October 11, 2014 | 41 Comments
After a frustrating previous week, this satisfying episode delivers some decisive moments for several characters, both on the mystery front and (mostly) the romance, as well as bringing in, perhaps, the final key figure for the former. It turns out that madcap and nonsensical plans have their uses, and sometimes it only takes small moments... More »

My Secret Hotel: Episode 13

If you were hoping the show would make some progress in answering all the questions we’ve been wondering now for weeks (such as, who’s the killer? Who does Sang-hyo really love? Why don’t Hae-young and Sung-gyum act their age?), you’ll be disappointed. The show nearly goes back to square one in terms of plot, but... More »

My Secret Hotel: Episode 12

It’s got to be asked: With a week to play with, does Hae-young have a plan, or is his grand plan to wing it? I sincerely hope he’s got more game than he’s shown so far, because in every previous encounter, he’s come off worse even though the chances are always tipped in his favor.... More »

Now that Sang-hyo’s made her decision, Hae-young struggles to come to terms with what it means for her to officially be dating Sung-gyum, and if it’s even possible for him to actually let her go from his life. In the midst of all the emotion, however, the mystery takes a baby-step forward as we narrow... More »

My Secret Hotel: Episode 10

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 »
