Kim Nam-gil (Shark) always does well in sageuk (see: Queen Seon-deok, his current swashbuckling hit Pirate), so I’m happy to hear that he’s sticking to his forte in his next project.

by | June 24, 2013 | 224 Comments
I wish I could say that the episode leading up to the finale was spectacular, but I can’t. It’s a really underwhelming hour. First, the hero annoys me with his noble idiocy. Then, the villains annoy me with the lack of diversity in their repertoire of villainy. Then there’s an interlude where Dad gets a... More »
