School 2017 Review Episode 5

School 2017 Review: Episode 5

Staying true to its mission, School 2017 continues to highlight the ever wrong system in Geumdo High, or in South Korea for that matter.  I have no idea how accurate the problems depicted in the show are compared to the ones in existence, but I know for sure that many students are ...

Criminal Minds Review: Episode 1

Wow, what a fast-paced premiere. Criminal Minds spends no time in giving us a boring introduction as we're brought immediately to the meat of the premise—solving crimes using profiling. This episode achieved a record-breaking viewership rating (highest among all the cable Kdramas that have aired to date since January 2017) ...

Reunited Worlds Review: Episode 5-6

Coming back to life does not always guarantee a happy reunion, especially if you hear your loved ones blaming you for what they've gone through or denying the very relationship you have with them. This is why Sung Hae-sung asks why he is back when no one even wants to ...

School 2017 Review: Episode 4

Finally! X's identity is revealed! Unless School 2017 is just messing with us using plot twists that can get disappointing sometimes, we now know who the hoodie guy is. I did not expect him to be really the one under the hood but I'm not surprised at all upon seeing ...

School 2017 Review: Episode 3

The mystery is far from over. Delinquent trouble-maker X may not have surfaced in the last few days but his drone scene in the gym caused more troubles in school. Although we're still unsure of his identity, this episode gives us a little bit of more background about our trio ...

Reunited Worlds Review: Episode 1-2

I like this show. To be honest, among the four new dramas this July that I am currently following, Reunited Worlds stands out as the best as far as episode 1 is concerned. Yeo Jin-goo is back again on the small screen with an impressive performance, and when the screenplay department is ...

The King Loves Review: Episode 3-4

The story development of this episode gives emphasis on Wang Won's life as a crown prince. If the first episode focuses more on Han Eun-san, this one centers on the crown prince's background—his family, his family's foes, and his personality as a future, 'wolf-dog' King. We also get to learn ...

School 2017 Review: Episode 2

This show is getting more interesting, ha. I was not expecting that drone coming in that scene in the gym although I admit that was a clever way to convince the school that Ra Eun-ho is wrongly accused of a crime. I also find the hoodie guy mystery intriguing, particularly ...

The King Loves Review: Episode 1-2

The King Loves is finally here, over six months after the production team started shooting the drama. That's quite a long period of preparation but it's understandable given that it's completely pre-produced. Ratings-wise it did not premiere with a bang but it delivered what I expected to see—a story about ...

The new School from KBS finally had its opening yesterday, delivering a premiere that is good enough to have me hooked on following the second episode. I haven't watched any past installment of the franchise, so I don't really know what to expect in this new one. Actually, I tried the ...

Descendants of the Sun A Year After Part 16

Korean dramas often have an open and confusing ending but the finale episode of the Descendants of the Sun is rather satisfying. In any case, an ending in none other than an ending. It means that we have to say goodbye to the drama we have loved and constantly followed ...

Episode 15 reechoes Argus' words to Kang Mo-yeon regarding her relationship with Yoo Shi-jin back in Episode 12; “He’ll disappear from time to time, be hard to contact. And then one day, he will never come back”. Loving is never easy but loving a soldier seems to be harder—there's a ...
