Extension for Oohlala Spouses, not for Nice Guy
by | November 6, 2012 | 72 Comments
Good news and not-so-good news? Monday-Tuesday’s Oohlala Spouses looks like it’s getting its extension, while Wednesday-Thursday’s Nice Guy is not. It’s no secret how we feel about extensions ’round these parts (almost universally met with dismay), so I’m not super thrilled about Oohlala getting two more episodes, although I can see how it may be...

Nice Guy: Episode 16
by | November 2, 2012 | 207 Comments
It’s time for some truth up in here, and that truth comes with its own dose of forced smiles and infinite levels of deception. Maru’s finally embracing his inner nice guy and pulls on our heartstrings while he’s at it, which somehow makes the cute moments in this episode the saddest thing ever. And then... More »

Nice Guy: Episode 15
by | November 1, 2012 | 116 Comments
It’s time for everyone to choose which side of the divide they stand on where love is concerned, with Jae-hee ready to throw love away to gain everything, and Eun-ki ready to throw everything she’s gained away for love. It makes for some interesting internal conflicts amidst all the corporate machinations, which have managed to... More »

Nice Guy: Episode 14

This episode is chock-full of some really wonderful character moments, as Eun-ki’s journey to find her past proves to be a bumpy and unsurprisingly dramatic ride. It’s probably not helpful when the people around her want her to regain only her least painful memories, with none of them realizing that trying to pick and choose... More »

Nice Guy: Episode 13

This episode is a nail-biter, and one which reminds us why Nice Guy is unique among melodramas. With every character desperate for something, whether it’s Maru’s desperation to shield Eun-ki, Eun-ki’s desperation to find her memories, or Jae-hee’s desperation to prove that she doesn’t have her Terrible-o-Meter turned up all the time, we’re in for...

Nice Guy: Episode 12

Here’s a line I never thought I’d say: Amnesia is doing wonders for this story. Phew. With that out of the way, I was surprised and pleased by this episode, which delivered plenty of bang for its dramatic buck. Maru learns how to run a corporation overnight and takes Jae-hee to school, Eun-ki gets some... More »

Nice Guy: Episode 11

It’s everyone’s turn to play Hide The (Amnesiac) Chaebol, with no one excelling at the game quite as well as Maru. It’s nice to see him have purpose again, even if that purpose is saving our resident damsel in distress from Jae-hee’s evil clutches. Unfortunately for him, most of his forward momentum takes him out... More »

Nice Guy: Episode 10
by | October 12, 2012 | 235 Comments
With lost memories comes a new chapter in our characters’ lives, one that leaves our heroine more vulnerable than ever and our hero extra heroic as a result. It’s no easy feat watching Eun-ki struggle through the world like she was born yesterday, just like it isn’t easy watching Maru walk around like a zombie... More »

Nice Guy: Episode 9

We all knew it was going to happen, we just didn’t know when. Surprise! Now we do. Amnesia hits Nice Guy‘s shores, finally, and it’s a relief to get that hurdle over and done with. Not because it’s the greatest story turn ever, but because we can finally stop looking over our shoulders wondering, “When... More »

The Great Seer sees slow start, Nice Guy keeps ratings lead
by | October 10, 2012 | 94 Comments
A new drama joins the pack today with grand-scale fusion sageuk The Great Seer premiering on SBS. The show has a pretty epic scope and lots of big names in its cast (Ji Jin-hee, Ji Sung, Kim So-yeon, Song Chang-eui, Lee Yoon-ji), so it’s a bit surprising to see its first outing netting a mere...
