by | May 14, 2015 | 92 Comments
Yup, Chaebol’s Daughter has changed its title again, but on the upside, High Society is substantially better than the totally nondescript True Romance. Whatever it’s called, this drama has picked one hell of an inaugural promo run: The first set of stills feature a gussied-up Sung Joon (Hyde, Jekyll, Me) and UEE (Ho-gu’s Love) about... More »

After some initial casting setbacks, SBS’s new money-or-love melodrama Chaebol’s Daughter, the new series from the team behind A Warm Word, is back on track with a pair of leading ladies.

Hyde, Jekyll, Me: Episode 20 (Final)
by | March 26, 2015 | 149 Comments
On the one hand, the finale of Hyde, Jekyll, Me finally gives me what I’ve been wanting from the show. On the other, I’ve been waiting for nineteen episodes for this stuff to happen, which kind of takes the punch out of getting what I want. It’s time to face the music and decide once... More »

Hyde, Jekyll, Me: Episode 19

No matter how much Seo-jin has come to accept Robin as his own person, we knew that he would have to heal eventually. As much as we’re rooting for Seo-jin to be strong enough to stand on his own, it’s tough to see how terrified Robin is about vanishing completely. But the truth is that... More »

Episode 17 seems a little late in the game to still be denying your feelings, but this show isn’t exactly known for its speedy development. Still, Seo-jin has come miles since we first met him, and when Hana tries her damnedest to deny her feelings for him, he reminds me once again why I’m on... More »

Hyde, Jekyll, Me: Episode 16
by | March 12, 2015 | 68 Comments
I like this show so much better when we focus on small character moments and growth like we do today, rather than silly plot machinations that make me question my faith in law enforcement. Now that the smoke has cleared, the more important conflict comes into play: When Hana is forced to choose between Robin... More »
