So even though a really big point has been made about how the Goblin will die if the sword is ever pulled out, apparently by "die" what everyone actually meant was "get sent to icy purgatory for several years". This will end his suffering somehow. The logic of this rather escapes me, since being an immortal God in modern Seoul would seem to be a great deal more enjoyable than wandering the desert, and the Goblin ends up back there anyway except that no one remembers who he is...More
Episode 18 of "The Legend of the Blue Sea" crams everything into one very tumultuous episode. Joon-jae reels from his father's death. Arrests are made. Accusations are cast. Past incarnations are revealed. Fate swings a heavy fist...More
"Voice" definitely relies most on the wrenching of emotions to hook its audience and the highly emotional moments are definitely where it is strongest. It sinks its airtime into the sensational whether it be a current case or an angry Jang Hyeok...More
Relief, despair, frustration and every other imaginable entry in the gamut of human emotion is felt by our stranded duo of idol and stylist, as Bong-hee manages to regain the part of her memories taking place immediately after the crash. Survival is the name of the game and Joon-oh is just not very good at it. Meanwhile, a body is washed ashore in the present and the mystery of what happened on the island becomes more complicated...More
The bookends for the final episode of "Naked Fireman" communicate the emotional core of the drama. Why did Cheol-soo become a fireman anyway? Why is he always so determined to risk his own life to help others? Within reason of course. I really like how "Naked Fireman" demonstrates that in the real world, even a brave heroic man like Cheol-soo very sensibly backs down and is generally pliant when faced with a gun...More
With the true villain unveiled, we know now that "Naked Fireman" is, in the end, a thriller. But, as is usually crucial, the characters themselves are not aware of this. Jin-ah is baffled by the extent to which Cheol-soo does not resemble the terrifying man in her memory, and slowly starts to piece together the inconsistency of memories. Unfortunately the process is slow, and it simply does not occur to Jin-ah that if not the man with the birthmark, the culprit would have to be someone frighteningly close...More
"Missing 9" starts out with a bang, that is, the sound of an exploding plane engine. Episode one starts us off four months after the crash and it provides our witness, who claims total loss of her memories after the painful event. The episode then introduces us to the diverse cast of characters, their basic relationships and a little backstory before diving, quite literally, into the dire situation at hand...More
