Best of “Tomorrow”

This is one of the best-written and well-thought-of K-dramas this year, hands down. From the introduction of the lead characters, the case studies every week, and up to the build-up of the main plot, everything was carefully laid out. For a dark fantasy drama dealing with taboo topics such as depression, suicide, self-harm, and sexual…

The King’s Affection | Series Review

The King’s Affection has an interesting storyline that easily helps it stand out among other sageuk that aired this year. Or at least it was for me since I’m really into gender bender series and well, monarchs. And a royalty being forced to disguise herself as a man is something that really piqued my attention. So…

K-Drama Reaction: About Time | Episode 12

Nasty Bae Soo-bong Wow, Bae Soo-bong (Im Se-mi) is getting worse and worse as she desperately tries to force Lee Do-ha into marrying her. I thought…

K-Drama Reaction: About Time | Episode 11

The frustrating push and pull between our two leads continue and by the look of things, it seems like it will take a little longer before our couple can finally sort things out and go back in each other's arms again. Do-ha against all odds If Choi Mi-ka (Lee Sung-kyung) is having a hard time…

K-Drama Reaction: About Time | Episode 10

Am I the only one dreading to watch another episode of this drama? I love Lee Sung-kyung and Lee Sang-yoon but the excessive problem this drama has is proving to be really overwhelming. I hope the writer has a good redeeming moment in store for us, or this would be really disappointing. Closure Can you…

K-Drama Reaction: About Time | Episode 8

This drama has gone melodramatic full circle in this episode as it zoomed in on Yoon Do-san's life story. The news of his impending death tested not only him as well as his younger brother Lee Do-ha. Get your tissues ready for this heart-wrenching episode. Goodbye Hyung If it's tough for Do-san (Jung Moon-sung), Do-ha…

K-Drama Reaction: About Time | Episode 7

This drama loves problems, doesn't it? We've got disapproving parents, first love blunder, a bitchy female antagonist, and now, an impending death. With this said, all I could hope for is that despite all these forces trying to tear them apart, our couple will be able to overcome them with their love. Will they? Do-ha's…

K-Drama Reaction: About Time | Episode 6

I have a feeling that this drama will continue to disappoint. I'm sad that it doesn't give the couple more time to enjoy their love line and just throw one conflict after another. It's disguising itself as an out-of-the-box drama with its unconventional fantasy element but what you get is more and more drama cliches.…
