[HanCinema's Drama Review] "The Girl Who Sees Smells" Episode 15 2015/05/20,
And so Jae-hee is down for the count...or is he? Normally I make a point of how proper set-up is important for effective delivery. Here's the problem with this episode's cliffhanger though. The fact that it was obviously foreshadowed only served to make me dread the end of this episode, as well as the next one, because it means that once more "The Girl Who Sees Smells" is going to insist on doing its stupid invincible serial killer shtick right to the end, when Jae-hee is once again foiled less because his opponents are competent and more because the writer turns off Jae-hee's omniscience superpower,...More

By the end of this episode the evidentiary problem regarding Jae-hee is finally resolved. Thank goodness. Jae-hee's improbable feats of invisibility are by far the worst part of this drama and this episode is no less frustrating in that department. How did he manage to get a full-sized unconscious woman outside of the mall without anyone noticing in the middle of the day? Did he have a secret garage?

I figured she must have a GPS tracker or a weapon or something, because otherwise why not set up an actual trap?,...More

Writer Lee Hee-myeong appears to have remembered that the title of the drama is "The Girl Who Sees Smells", so we finally get some more smell-seeing. The whole sequence feels like a flashback to the earlier parts of the drama- we have Cho-rim proving that she has the abilities, and then she solves a simple mystery with them. Which is nice, I guess, except that then it's right back to the same old serial killer antics where the smell-seeing abilities aren't used even though by the end there is a really, really obvious use for them,...More
[HanCinema's Drama Review] "The Girl Who Sees Smells" Episode 12 2015/05/07,
The cliffhanger last time and the cliffhanger this time are for the most part the exact same cliffhanger. "The Girl Who Sees Smells" is having difficulty justifying its running time at this point. Even under the most charitable interpretation by all rights Jae-hee really should have been caught by now. Moo-gak actually manages to catch Jae-hee committing an explicit crime- at the very least there should be probable cause for a warrant. And a cursory investigation of Jae-hee's cellar would quickly reveal the existence of the books, and then it's game over,...More
