18 Again: Episodes 1-6 Review

18 Again is JTBC’s currently airing Monday-Tuesday drama based on the 2009 American film, 17 Again, starring Zac Efron. I’M TELLING YOU GUYS: this show is the most wholesome, heartwarming, heartachey show on TV right now, and if you aren’t watching it already, you should.

Record of Youth: Episodes 9-10 Review

Now we’ve crested the midpoint of the show, we launch right into a whole different game of... "celebrity is as celebrity does"? Hye-joon's star is rising, and with great fame comes great envy all around, and more complicated feelings from the people closest to him who love him most. My feeling is that we'll soon...

Record of Youth: Episodes 7-8 Review

I really loved these episodes. Really really. I fully acknowledge that this drama is very focused on its visual presentation and stylising itself into these perfectly composed moments, but still the emotions of it are layered, and even if it’s not quite as messy, it’s no less complicated. Are its moments as organic as a... Continue Reading →

Record of Youth: Episodes 3-4 Review

The second week of Record of Youth continues to add layers to its already layered relationships. I’m surprised by just how much ground the show covers in two hours—meaning that a whole lot of change has happened since opening week (also whoops, we're behind, but we still haven't decided whether to run full cover on...

Stranger 2: Episodes 11-12 Review

The disparate pieces of the puzzle are beginning to come together, but there's still no sign of a breakthrough. Everyone's feeling the strain as the investigation leads to another dead end, and human life once again takes a backseat to politics. At least Shi-mok and Yeo-jin get to share a few moments of camaraderie this... Continue Reading →
