I’m ever so slowly emerging out of my drama slump, after feeling sluggish and listless in recent weeks. But I’ve been encouraged by the crop of new shows and have started getting back into the habit of watching shows regularly for enjoyment (for a while, it felt like I was forcing myself to keep up)....

Rebel: The Thief Who Stole the People: Episode 8

After the emotional roller coaster ride of the last episode, this one was all about getting Gil-dong back on track on his hero’s journey. Like father, like son—Gil-dong’s motivation to protect his siblings strongly resembles Amogae’s own when he first became the “Great Ikhwari Elder” that it makes me worry as I think about the...

After a whirlwind of events that seemed determined to condemn our family to misery, we get a quick break from the family tragedy to get to know the talented Nok-soo. She’s not the Nok-soo we were initially introduced to quite yet (she even goes by a different name at this stage in her life), but... More »

I’m still in catch-up mode, but I diligently made my way through my stack of episodes ’cause (1) I can never stay away from dramas for too long, and (2) they pile up so quickly that the thought of what I’d have to confront if I kept ignoring the pile was too daunting. I mean,... More »

I knew it was coming, but I had still held out hope that Gil-dong could be carefree and happy just a while longer. Amogae’s carefully built illegal empire starts to topple like a house of cards, and the greatest victims are the people he loves most: his children. Surprisingly, it’s not Gil-dong or Gil-hyun that... More »

With Gil-dong’s childhood behind us, we’re introduced to the simplicity of his adulthood. While Amogae was the dark, morally-compromised hero, Gil-dong seems to be the exact opposite: simple, dorky, and quite fearful. It’s an anticlimactic introduction to our hero but in the best way because Gil-dong is just an adorable little boy in a grown... More »

The spotlight is once more on Amogae as he creates his own version of utopia in a new home. Despite the sorrow he feels at his wife’s death and his fear for his Mighty Child son’s life, he perseveres through these hardships with a steely inner strength. His clever wits and ambitious vision allows him... More »

Yaas, badass transformation, I was waiting for you. Amogae really takes charge of his own fate, playing with death as one would play with fire. While this episode takes a more procedural approach to Amogae’s criminal deed, it still keeps you on your toes. It’s a tug of war between different social classes, both fighting... More »

We’ve got more premieres on our plates, with more on the horizon! I’m still feeling a lingering sluggishness regarding my drama-watching habits, but I think there might be a show or two that’ll pull me back in… Are you hooked on the current batch, or still waiting for that show to grab your attention? I... More »
