Episode seven of "The K2" is not very plot-heavy, but the relationship between Ahn-na and her father is explored, which has been a long time coming. We also learn more about Yoo-jin and Ahn-na's characters, how they feel about each other and how they have been shaped by their attachment to Se-joon. Je-ha's role is shaping into that of an observer and a disruptor of the messed up reality everyone has accepted for so long...More

It's impressive how quickly "Road to the Airport" has gone from making Soo-ah and Do-woo's situation look romantic to making it look like a horribly bad idea. Soo-ah is, by nature, such a forthright person that she simply lacks the proper energy necessary to maintain any kind of romantic affair. It's a weird contrast to Jin-seok, whose main natural resistance to extramarital entanglements is his tendency to get bored very quickly with silly women who want to get entangled with married men...More
As Do-woo has to deal with the fallout from a second funeral, I do find myself wondering whether "Road to the Airport" is taking matters a bit far in the whole "make Do-woo sad" department. In order to maintain sympathy for the lead characters as they edge into an affair, Do-woo really has to break down completely with regards to emotional support. Given how unresponsive Hye-won was when it came to her own daughter, it's little surprise the woman is similarly unhelpful with the death of her mother-in-law...More
Our adorable duo get to spend some time apart and re-evaluate their relationship when Joong-won steps in and kicks the romantic shenanigans up a notch. Ma-ri steps up her antagonist game, but the people looking for Louis/Ji-seong will not rest either. Meanwhile, Bok-sil discovers some valuable information about Bok-nam and detective Nam makes progress in finding Ji-seong's roots. A dangerous figure stalks our couple's home, causing a suspenseful event...More
...So apparently, even though the first episode of "Something About 1% - 2016" was pretty close to an hour, subsequent episodes appear to be only thirty minutes. This requires a change of strategy when it comes to reviews, since a single episode lacks enough content for a full review. But it also requires more managed expectations. "Something About 1% - 2016" is aiming fairly low in the narrative storytelling department...More

Now that he's become King Jengjong, the royalist formerly known as Prince Yo immediately makes a point of taking out all potential threats to his rule. Which in all fairness sounds pretty reasonable. Consider that the last two kings fell victim to assassination attempts largely because they weren't paying careful attention to immediate domestic threats. Granted that threat was Prince Yo himself, but even so, he's clearly not a very popular guy right now...More
