"I see dead people" is a common phrase used in parody, but if it were true, as it is for the leading lady in "Spellbound", it would be a shockingly terrifying trait to hold.
Ever since she was young, Yeo-ri (Son Ye-jin), has had the unnatural ability to see ghosts, and when they do appear, usually when she has company, unexpected things occur to the people around her. Yeo-ri chooses to isolate herself from the outside world but is approached by a street magician named Jo-goo (Lee Min-ki), who offers her a job in his show...More
It would seem that I was mistaken on the action front. Initially the attack is a big deal, but for the most this episode is just an anatomy of the attack, which was so sudden there's not even much to see. For the most part the focus here is on Tae-kyoung, who is being treated suspiciously for...some reason I'm not sure what exactly. Maybe I've seen too many of these cat-and-mouse mysteries, but everything about this episode was so painfully predictable I was just impatiently tapping my hads thinking "get on with it already!"
So, Tae-kyoung is wrongly accused, and now must work on his own to protect the president. That's motivation...More
Well, the question of the point this drama has been getting at has been clearly resolved. Within the first few minutes of this episode the ending is more or less clearly established. I mean, it's possible that writer Lim Soo-mi will pull another screwball out at that last minute, but I kind of doubt it. The big strength of "Let's Eat" has always been it's ability to screw around with us in the moment, not get overly witty with the overall narrative thrust.
And there are definitely some good moments here. There's the brief but memorable evil team-up, which looks so outrageously staged I'm surprised Soo-kyeong even falls for it...More
"Sly and Single Again" bursts from the gate with a fast-paced, funny, and clever first episode. MBC paired writer Lee Ha-na-I with director Ko Dong-seon and the two laid down a very solid start for this romcom about a divorced couple who meet again.
This show hasn't brought anything new to the table, but it knows how to play with old material and how to infuse humor to nearly every subject presented in the show. The basic premise centers around a divorced couple who get back together for reasons other than love: she for his newfound wealth; he for revenge...More
