A year after former MBC news anchor Kim Joo-ha, 41, filed for divorce, the Seoul Western District Court ordered her husband on Sunday to pay Kim the nearly 300 million won (about $284,700) he promised her after he got busted for having an affair, local media said yesterday.

Kim reportedly wrote an oath for her husband, surnamed Kang, to sign, which dates back to Aug. 19, 2009, when Kim found out that he had been having an extramarital relationship for two years...More

It's nice to finally get the question clearly answered of why the heroes don't just murder him outright, although again, considering how many enemies he has with access to assassins I'm surprised this is the first time it's happened.

Speaking of assassins, that's apparently the new plot hook, although of the many attempts made here only one actually succeeds...More

[HanCinema's Drama Review] "My Secret Hotel" Episode 11

2014/09/29 | | Permalink

The focus is still almost totally on the romance…or is it? After the apparently sincere and emotionally heartfelt cliffhanger (which this episode wisely opens with), for most of the runtime we actually seem to be right back to the same lukewarm Seong-gyeom that we've seen for most of "My Secret Hotel". On top of everything else he spends a lot of time acting in a very suspicious way, and as of yet there's still no satisfactory explanation as to why.

What particularly makes this feel so odd is that a lot of the episode is actually taken from the perspective of He-yeong. Several scenes take place entirely in his imagination, which begs a lot of questions...More
