Doctor John: The irony of it all…

The only bits I like about Doctor is those times when Ji-sung is on screen as Dr Yo-han, the genius who can diagnose a complicated case without the help of laboratories and clever gadgets. But more often than not, the storyline is bugged down by two characters whom I am getting less and less patient... Continue Reading →

When the Devil Calls Your Name: Souls

Is it only me that find Tae-kang seriously funny...and somehow endearing (gasp!) as a devil? I love his banter and negotiations with Ha Rib, including the recent amendments to the clauses on his contract. So Mr Devil is willing to consider giving Ha Rib a permanent no-strings attached extension of his benefits as long as... Continue Reading →

Hotel Del Luna: Hatred

How long can you hate someone? Well, for Man-wol, an eternity isn't enough. I was quite aghast at her unprovoked retaliation against Mi-ra, even though we did get glimpses into Man-wol/ Mi-ra's past and understand they were arch enemies (and possibly rivals in love) then. But...Mi-ra in the current reincarnation did not even do anything... Continue Reading →

Dr John: The Pain Issue

Although the topic of Dr's narrative is heavy going material -- euthanasia shares just as many arguments as abortions -- I find myself enjoying the show pretty much. Maybe cos Corruption hasn't made its daily appearance. Given the drift of the plot, I have an inkling it MIGHT not be such a huge stage presence... Continue Reading →

Final Review: Different dreams

Storyline (may include spoilers): It was more than 10 years after the March 1st movement and setting up of the Provisional Government of the Republic of Korea, but Korea was still a colonial state of Japan despite many efforts of the various organizations fighting for Korea's independence. One such organization for the independence activists was... Continue Reading →

Final Review: Investigation Couple 2

The ending... leaves me crying for a bloody refund. Ok, given that I know that Investigation 3 is in the works (the crew is negotiating for a continuation), I might just let the cliff hanger slide (again). But the Easter Egg post-credit is interesting. [SPOILERS] I fully understand why Prosecutor Do would want to leave... Continue Reading →

Final Review: Perfume

Spoilers: Min Jae-hee (Ha Jae-sook) finally recalled that Seo Yi-do (Shin Sung-rok) was the boy that she saved when they were young, and found out that she was Yi-do's first and only love. Unaware that Jae-hee was also Min Ye-rin (Ko Won-hee) that he knew, Yi-do was so torn between Jae-hee and Ye-rin, and unable... Continue Reading →
