Kyeong-cheol comes off surprisingly sympathetically considering that he's basically a whiny child. The confrontation at the rich family's house doesn't go the way he was hoping, and when given the chance, Kyeong-cheol unwinds by literally having a temper tantrum. Watching Kyeong-cheol is kind of like watching a kid who has just been told that life isn't fair, after having been told point blank that the authority figures are going to do things in a hypocritical way...More

This is the episode of the underpaid and overworked hired help. Until recent episodes they have mostly made commentary on Jung-ho's and Yeon-hee's lives and decisions. Now they finally stand up for their rights as human beings and it throws the rich folk into a tizzy. Unfortunately that tizzy gets taken out on Beom.
The new pressure on Beom allow her to prove her mettle...More
King Seonjo once again has to have everything told to him, rather than being able to see it himself. This is a worthwhile fact to note. Aside from the occasional publicity tour even today world leaders only ever really see what their immediate subordinates want them to see. While King Seonjo knows by now that not everything he's told should necessarily be believed or trusted, at the same time, there's only so much he can do with limited information...More
After establishing that the last cliffhanger was for real, "Let the Girl Cry" quickly takes the focus off of the rich family and gets back to the more interesting character/situation- Deok-in and her birth mother meeting up with Deok-in's in-laws. It's a situation that slowly moves from awkward to just plain painful. On a basic level Deok-in just can't relate to her birth mother. And her birth mother, too, really doesn't appreciate that this is Deok-in's actual family she's condescending to...More
Doing one thing and doing it well is just fine, but with channel OCN having successfully established its own style of series for a while now, branching out into different things is inevitable. "My Beautiful Bride" is an upcoming drama which adopts more of a regular drama programming form and focuses on a main plot, something the station's series have already attempted a few times. Done well, this might just be a milestone for the provider...More
TvN might be best known for its romantic comedies, but the station has offered more genres during its run. Shows like last year's "Incomplete Life" or 'Gabdong - The Serial Killer' have been well received while attempting a new approach for the channel and Korean drama in general. The new addition to this variety comes with crime drama "Hidden Identity", which might not sound exciting yet, but has all it needs to succeed...More
As much as Je-hoon and Yeon-hee loved Beom before is as much as they find her worthless now. They turned into rabid animals as soon as Beom fell out of their favor. Their ability to flip flop is terrifying and not only do In-sang and Beom fear them, but so do the overworked, manipulated contracted workers.
Je-hoon and Yeon-hee's marriage is built on pride and money...More
