Review – Spy Myung Wol
Spy Myung Wol is one of those adorable, zany romantic comedies that came out a while back – with heavy handed shenanigans, lots of side characters, tons of extras, and these stellar cliches for leads that are so out there you can’t help but love them. Think… The Greatest Love or You Are Beautiful or Fated To Love You or Secret Garden. Zany. With handguns! This drama is about a North Korean spy who ends up getting entangled with a South Korean actor/rockstar. National politics, international intrigue, paparazzi, and a hosts of fans are thrown into the mix for a good-hearted romp of a show. Not only are the two leads highly amusing, but there’s a whole gift basket full of side characters that are witty and entertaining. It’s so much fun!
Overall Rating – 9/10. The Drama Between North & South Korea Is Nothing Compared To The Drama Between Men & Women.

Review – Nine Times Travel
Nine Times Travel. Proving you don’t need incredible special effects or overly elaborate scientific explanations to master the art of time travel and exquisite television. Keep it simple and it will grow exponentially on its own. For what started as a rather simple drama with a “day time” television feeling, I was pleasantly surprised how quickly this show leveled up. I had a full blown emotional heart attack during episode nine and was revived only to die of shock again a few episodes later. The crash cart was brought out and “Clear!” By the end of the show, I felt like I’d been dragged across twenty years and half the world. And I wanted to do it again. And possibly again… in twenty years. Or an alternate time line. Or, ya know, some conundrum worm-hole double-layered mess that gets Hawking hard and gives me headaches.
Overall Rating 9.5/10
