Nice Guy: Episode 8
by | October 5, 2012 | 246 Comments
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...

Nice Guy: Episode 6

Feelings become more sincere, at least on one end, which leaves Maru wrestling with his better self and losing while he’s at it. Our star-crossed twisted human beings finally get to hash things out, leaving one thing clear – no one’s going to let go of their grudges any time soon. And if that means... More »

So good. SO GOOD. I’m still reeling from all the emotional missteps and victories this episode, since Nice Guy has proven that it can deliver its thrills carefully and methodically. Add ‘beautifully’ to that list, because not only is the cast exceptionally pretty (Song! Joong! Ki!), so is the cinematography. The directing hand in this... More »

Nice Guy: Episode 4
by | September 21, 2012 | 199 Comments
Wires get crossed and double-crossed as we get manipulation going on with every side, which is really making it hard to tell where playtime ends and real feelings begin. If there’s one thing I love unreservedly about this show, aside from all the things I love unreservedly, it’s every interaction between Eun-ki and her Wicked... More »

Nice Guy: Episode 3

There’s plenty of win to go around, but possibly more so than that is the subtly awesome subtext undercutting each scene (almost more present than the actual text). We’re stuck in this whirlwind of wondering whether to trust what we’re seeing, and whether characters are being sincere or manipulative. I love that what we’re seeing... More »

Who doesn’t like a heroine who can eat fried chicken and still do her job all from a hospital bed? Eun-ki’s really winning me over with her sass, even though little hints reveal that she’s not just the workaholic ice princess she tries to be. It makes for some really lively scenes whenever she comes... More »

There’s No Such Thing As Nice Guys is off to a fantastic start, and hits the ground running. The production feels assured and comfortable as it takes us by the hand and leads us into the hell of our characters’ own making. How far would you go for love? How much is too much? I... More »

Man, it’s really been a Song Joong-ki week. Not that I’m complaining, mind you. That would be nutty. He’s just got two projects in the pipeline at the same time, so there’s more of The Pretty to go around. Plenty for everyone! Here are the official posters for his new drama There’s No Such Thing...
