    Thanks for sharing your thoughts about the violence and vigilante in Vincenzo. When I finished ep 20, I was reeling because the violence in Vincenzo’s ep 17 and 20 was so shocking and disturbing. It also left me confused because I didn’t know that I could ever support a vicious murder and villain like Vincenzo, but here I was, cheering for him till the end. After a few days trying to sort out my thoughts, I made peace with myself and agreed that a character like Vincenzo is befittingly needed in the corrupt world of Vincenzo the drama. But part of me still feels uneasy about the possibility of such scenario in the reality. I don’t know what state of corruption South Korean are living in, but seeing the rise of dramas like Vincenzo, Taxi Driver, or Beyond Evil makes me a bit worried about how bad it is to drive these writers to manifest their pent-up anger like this.

My current favourite — Taxi Driver. Waiting for Undercover.

I really enjoyed Tomorrow with You and am rewatching it. Loved the leads — they worked so well together.

    I liked TWY too and I know not many people did. I’ll check your review.

    I’m one of the few who also enjoyed it. Although mostly because of the OTP.

    Oooh. Too good. This is lovely.

    I’m still baffled to this day why not a lot of people like this drama. It’s one of my favorites. I expected time travel as well, but I got more than I bargained for. And you went there. That was the beautiful part of the drama and you dove into it. Thank you.

    That one but of information about you. Wow! Congratulations. We love to see more of that.

    Read your article! IA. Super underrated. The show slowly washes over you like a warm tidal wave, and slowly seeps into you lol. I really felt the unwavering love between the FL/ML. The message was to focus on the present, and I think the ending where they said “When?”, and he replied “Today” says it all. Gah, I would love to see SMA and LJH team up again in another passionate Melo lol. A girl can dream right :D?

    Good thoughts. I don’t know if I have any deep thoughts on it. It’s just over. I did like CSW in this role and I want him in a nerdy hero role again somewhere. I liked his Macguyvering in the beginning and missed that at the end.

    Well said. I wonder too how there can be such an abundance of weapons and ammo in a world without food. The unending gun battles, I guess, are an attempt at The Lord of the Flies, but in spite of all the tense standoffs, there is only the thinnest thread of suspense to keep me watching (and Cho Seung-woo, of course.) I’d watch him even if I was hanging from a cliff while a nuclear explosion was going off.

      Cho Seung-woo rocks in this and is probably the main attraction up to now.
      I suppose it’s possible that Sigma stockpiled weaponry in the most recent loop but who knows. It’s doesn’t seem to be the first time.

      Thanks for reading and dropping a comment.

First impressions on Beyond Evil starring Shin Ha-kyun and Yeo Jin-goo

    Thank you @Lilium for your excellent episodes1-2 review of BEYOND EVIL.
    I thought I might not be able to watch BE but was pleasantly surprised yesterday to find out that it is available subbed at ODK where I was able to watch THE GOOD DETECTIVE last year and TGD became one of my 2020 favorites.
    I was immediately drawn into the story. Both Shin Ha-kyun and Yeo Jin-goo are terrific and have hit the ground running. Both episodes flew by. Back when BE started to get some publicity one concern of mine was the 23 year age gap between YJG (23) and SHK (46). I am not sure yet what age YJG’s character is supposed to be but he is so mature and that voice of his does give him a certain gravitas.
    Is the cliffhanger ending of episode 2 a red herring? I can’t wait for episode 3.

      Episodes 3 and 4 are even better IMO.
      Thanks for your kind words.

        You are right! On Friday I rewatched episode 2 and then episodes 3 and 4 over the last 2 days. Of the 3 new dramas I am watching BEYOND EVIL is my favorite.
        Now we know YJG’s character Han Joo-won is 27 (which is 4 years older than in rl). With the projection of his maturity, demeanor and voice he is credibly portraying someone 4 years older.
