Oh, what could have been and wasn’t. Or what wasn’t, and should have been. But really, with Jackpot it’s a lot of what was, and definitely shouldn’t have been. But like every show must do, this one comes to an end. Of sorts. It’s actually not that bad in the grand scheme of things—it hits... More »

With a revolt in full swing, our two brothers are left on opposite sides of the spectrum when it comes to solving it.

Get ready for the blink-and-you’ll-miss-it rebellion no one was waiting for, which gets introduced, executed, and resolved before you can think too hard about it.

If you thought our resident terrible villain was good at evading consequences for his actions before, think again—he’s a master at it now. Best of all, he needs very little help to do it, since whatever he says, goes. Without a king to chase him and without a prince to take initiative, Injwa gets to... More »

No matter how swift, brutal, and supposedly final the king’s vengeance may be, there’ll always be ways to handily avoid death. Unless you’re not one of the main characters/human pin cushions, in which case, one stab or wrong look will kill you. Life may be a lottery, but when it’s one that our villain keeps... More »

Our resident sensible prince is given one job to do this episode, and proves his capacity toward leadership by carrying out his father and mother’s wishes to the best of his capabilities. Dae-gil faces a very tough decision this episode, and we almost lose the two brothers’ beloved partnership to Injwa’s machinations—almost, but not quite.... More »
