Yoo In-young joins Cheese in the Trap movie as Baek In-ha
by | February 17, 2017 | 64 Comments
My first thought upon hearing this casting news was that Yoo In-young (Mask, Goodbye Mr. Black) would be able to pull off a pretty spot-on Baek In-ha in the movie remake of Cheese in the Trap. And then my next thought was, Hmm, this version is skewing kinda old… Here are the ages of the... More »

An illicit student-teacher affair in Misbehavior
by | December 19, 2016 | 79 Comments
If Kim Haneul’s most recent drama On the Way to the Airport was a subdued and atmospheric depiction of adultery, then her latest film Misbehavior (Korean title: Teacher) appears to be quite the opposite, charged with the heated passion of forbidden desire and torrid jealousy. Misbehavior takes place at an all boys high school where... More »

Goodbye, Goodbye Mr. Black. I can’t say I’ll miss you, or that I’ll think of you, that is, unless you do something wildly horrific to our main characters and make me come back with a new name to hunt you down and get my revenge. But you won’t do that, right? We’ve come too far... More »

We’re almost at the end! While I’d like to tell you all that my excitement is because we’re nearing the climax of a thrilling ride and about to get answers to the questions that have kept us guessing all along, I can’t quite bring myself to see the glass being that half-full. Mostly I’m glad... More »

Is there finally, finally some happiness on the horizon for Mr. Black? I can’t decide if happy times are a bad omen and I should be feeling dread for what’s around the bend in finale week, but you know what—I’m going to enjoy it while it lasts, even if it’s just for one episode. Today... More »

Goodbye Mr. Black: Episode 17
by | May 11, 2016 | 20 Comments
The heat gets turned up for everyone and a lot of plotlines hurtle toward crisis and/or confrontation, which may suck for them but at least makes for an eventful hour. We’re heading into the final hours of the show, and some of the story threads start to get tied up (or around our characters’ necks,... More »

Goodbye Mr. Black: Episode 16

Well I’m glad someone in this relationship is tired of playing the avoidance game. It’s pretty fun to see Black on this side for once, trying to woo Swan back and convince her that they belong together. After what he put her through, I think a little wooing isn’t too much to ask for. Besides,... More »

Goodbye Mr. Black: Episode 15

It’s a pretty satisfying episode today, with solid losses and gains on both sides. And while I’m used to the conflict swinging back and forth in favor of the good guys one moment and the bad guys the next, I like that today’s reversals get an added boost by having an unexpected twist. At this... More »

It’s a good episode for the women in our drama, who both find themselves stuck between a rock and a hard place. Or maybe it’s more like an evil bastard and a truth they’d rather not face. In any case, I like it when Swan takes an active role in the story, especially because I’m... More »

It’s a tough day for Swan, who gets thrown by some unexpected revelations and continues to bear the brunt of continued noble idiocy. The reveal isn’t much of a shocker for us, since this drama never quite manages to make the most of its plot twists, and subtlety tends to get bludgeoned over the head... More »
