Yoon Jin-yi (Mandate of Heaven, A Gentleman’s Dignity) is the latest cast addition to Noh Hee-kyung’s new melo It’s Okay, It’s Love, due out this summer on SBS. So far I like how this cast is shaping up, despite being iffy on the premise. Yoon Jin-yi is confirmed for the role of Jo In-sung’s fangirl... More »

Mandate of Heaven: Episode 20 (Final)

Thank goodness this finale was good. When this cycle of dramas started with all the buzz projects and high-concept plots and big stars, who knew that this would be the show to stick? At least for me. I was certainly hoping Mandate of Heaven would be good, in the way that I hope all shows... More »

Mandate of Heaven: Episode 19

I don’t know if I’m just feeling emotional today, but today’s episode totally brought tears to my eyes, and for the best reasons. Not with big drama or grand gestures and intrigue, but for character moments that meant something, that were loaded with feeling and significance. With one episode left to go, the show is... More »

Mandate of Heaven: Episode 18

Ooh, a nice (and speedy) step up from yesterday. We’ve got some cuteness, some reversals, some more plotting (sigh, if we must), some squee (eeee), and even a surprise or two. It’s definitely feeling like we’re heading into the grand finale, and with that come some expected beats, but I think our good guys have... More »

Mandate of Heaven: Episode 17

Today gives us a bit of two steps forward, one step back—which at least is better than one step forward, two steps back, right? At least there’s also a nice big dose of cuteness to balance things out, which really goes a long way in light of the political games that ramp up in a... More »

I’m just gonna take a moment to bask in that image right there. He’s smart, dogged, and soliciting cuddles? Nab him, and fast! It’s a pretty major episode, with long-suppressed secrets finally spilling forth and giving our heroes solid victories. That means there’s a fair amount of fist-pumping going on as we get to enjoy...

Mandate of Heaven: Episode 15

Romances take another step forward, and it’s a nice day for our good guys, who are forced to step up the strategy in circumventing their thwarters. I worried that we were spending too much time on a plot point that seemed predictable, but we end up moving the story along significantly, which I’m always happy... More »

A big episode. Phew! I’m pleased with there this episode takes us, because I’m ready to introduce new threads to this plot. Not that we didn’t have plenty to keep us busy already, but injecting an extra dose of energy into the proceedings is never unwelcome. We’ve got to part ways with a few characters... More »

Mandate of Heaven: Episode 13

Tons of great stuff in this episode—it started off great, then just kept rolling. I love when a show is chock-full of reversals that move the story forward, rather than back and forth. That’s a danger you run into with a good-versus-evil conflict, with both sides struggling to claim victory. Often a step forward for... More »

Mandate of Heaven: Episode 12

A fun episode that has both sides increasing their efforts to win this political tug-of-war. There are some significant steps taken forward, but that doesn’t mean we don’t have plenty of time for cute little exchanges to brighten up the process. That sense of humor is one of the things I find most compelling about... More »
