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
by | October 26, 2012 | 192 Comments
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

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...

Nice Guy: Episode 8

So much good stuff this episode, especially since so much of it is just fallout. Dark, dramatic, narratively compelling fallout. Love. It may have taken a few good hits and a murder charge, but Maru finally proves that he has a limit, and Jae-hee passes it right on by with flying colors. Who needs revenge... More »

Nice Guy: Episode 7

Huge game changers this episode, delivering new thrills and chills to the warped love story and the equally warped family story. Eun-ki and Jae-hee reach some pretty pivotal turning points in their relationship with Maru, and while one decides to make his fifth vertebrae into his sixth, the other decides to lay it all out...
