It finally happened — a reason to like Soo-jung! And it only took nearly a hundred episodes. Still, better late than never, I say, which is nice because she’s probably the flattest character in the drama, along with Julien. Even tertiary characters like Yoon Gun have more going on under the surface, so it’s refreshing... More »

Yay, we’re back on track! Last week was a weird week in that it was the New Year with a pre-emption, giving us fewer episodes than normal, but it was also a rare week that didn’t really speak to me. Considering that the show’s been on the air for months and it was the first... More »

Hearts are broken this week, along with mine. We’ve got a lighter load of three episodes and though I don’t mind a lesser workload, our story feels cut off and I feel a little short-handed. Each of these stories could stand on its own but please sir, I want some more. SONG OF THE DAY... More »

Yessss! Finally, some major developments on one front! It’s pretty much what we all expected, but that doesn’t make it any less satisfying when it happens. The teasing was drawn-out, but the pay-off sure is satisfying. (Four episodes this week, due to a pre-emption.) SONG OF THE DAY Sweet Sorrow – “첫 데이트” (First Date)... More »

It’s a knockout week for High Kick with laughs, love, and life. How can a show leave me so content but demands that I have a box of tissues by my side? Seung-yoon seems to be the prominent character this week and he finally faces some serious identity issues of his own. Then there’s Ha-sun’s…... More »

More strong moments this week, along with cute moments that, in true High Kick fashion, are never without that tinge of heart-tugging poignancy to counter the sweetness. I know that High Kick 3 is performing pretty well in the ratings and it’s certainly not an overlooked show, but I can’t help but thinking it’s an... More »

What a way to wrap up 2011, High Kick 3. It’s another excellent week for our characters as they prepare to finish off the past year, tying up some loose ends and boy do we start of 2012 with a bang. Just when I was about to throw in the towel, we finally hear the... More »

We’ve hit the halfway point in our series (already?!) and I’m astounded how High Kick can have me in a fit of giggles one minute to nearly breaking down in tears the next. The week started off light enough, with fur ears and frantic Ji-seok outbursts, and now I’m going to need a box of... More »

Lots of little beats to sympathize with this week, I thought. Even when the show isn’t going dramatic in tugging on the heartstrings, I’m finding that there are a lot of smaller bits that resonate with me and make me look fondly on High Kick. These characters feel like they live in my world, and... More »

More unexpected connections pop up this week, which is something High Kick does so well. This is one thing that makes a months-long, 120-episode series worth it, because it has the luxury of exploring different storylines with different sets of characters. On a side note, I can’t believe we’re nearly halfway through already — the... More »
