K-Drama Reaction: Familiar Wife | Episode 12

I loved this episode. It is all about Joo-hyuk's (Ji Sung) road to maturity.

The heart-to-heart confession with Woo-jin (Han Ji-min) was perfectly acted by the one and only Ji Sung. I could…

K-Drama Reaction: Life | Episode 14

This is one thrilling climactic climb. New Rules Deputy Director Kim Tae-sang (Moon Sung-geun) took one last gasp before his last breath.
