I liked this episode which put our heroine straight into the web of deception, murder and money. We see her struggle through this but I can see light at the end of this dark tunnel she is walking through, as she and our hero finally have to come together, which gives hope that they will be each other’s hope to happiness.

The final Wednesday-Thursday drama to premiere this month arrived this week. Mask hit the ground running by taking over top position among its competitors. The show ticks all the boxes of a makjang melo. I’m not impressed yet but overall it did a nice job in introducing the players, adding a flavour of complexity. I’m keeping my fingers crossed that second episode will be better. Continue reading
Another entertaining episode of Cunning Single Lady is here. We get a clearer picture of the past and Ae Ra’s feelings towards the divorce. With each new episode, I find myself rooting for her more and more, if not completely yet. There can be more in their past than meets the eye and I can’t wait to find that out. The workplace drama comes forward now and to be honest, there are all the stereotypical tropes—hero is the boss, heroine is the employee, mean female colleague/senior, good-natured second lead, but there is still the freshness in our main characters as well as the ex-husband-wife trope which makes things interesting as well as gives a fresh coating to the old formula of a workplace drama. I found this episode really funny and pleasant! Continue reading
Another pleasant episode which explains many things about our players. We also meet some new characters and relationships. Our couple finally comes face to face after many years and things get worse between them. Continue reading
Cunning Single Lady (Sly And Single Again) premiered this week as the new Wednesday-Thursday drama and aired two back to back episodes. I really liked the first episode which was funny, fast and established our main plot. The main attraction for me was of course to see Joo Sang Wook in a romantic comedy, but I was also interested in the premise. Yes, dramaland doesn’t lack in ‘second chances in love’ stories but still the idea of a cunning heroine who seduces her ex-husband aroused my curiosity. And I’m glad that we have enough reasons and situations to reach beyond this one line description we were given in the promotional phase. The two episodes received quite good ratings of 5.4% & 6.4%, considering that they were up against the finale of You From Another Star.
P.S. This will be more like a mini-recap. Continue reading
