    We witness the downfall of Cha Ok as the world casts her as the villain of the story. Looks like Dal Po (or now Ki Ha Myeong) and Jae Myeong's operation revenge is carrying out smoothly. Only problem is, I'm not sure if I'm completely on board.I had a hard time sympathizing with Ha Myeong during this episode. Although Jae Myeong and Ha Myeong certainly earned their moment of triumph when they humiliated Cha Ok on broadcast, it looks like the brot

    After trying his best to protect Jae Myeong and In Ha by lying here and there, Dal Po resolves to focus on being a good reporter and get his family justice via the news world rather than on being a good brother or a good boyfriend.Dal Po has had this desire to be more truthful in broadcasts for a while now--ever since episode 7--but we've definitely seen him stumble after realizing the likely possibility of his brother being a murderer.

    Team In Ha and Dal Po finally have their epic showdowns with their estranged family members Cha Ok and Jae Myeong respectively. While In Ha rebukes Cha Ok in public and makes her see the error of her ways, Dal Po reveals himself to a stunned Jae Myeong, leaving viewers with yet another crazy cliffhanger. I applaud In Ha for finally succeeding in standing up to Cha Ok, not just for Dal Po but also for herself. Throughout the series, Cha Ok te

    While Cha Ok's cold exterior finally starts to thaw, secrets are unveiled, alliances are drawn, and danger in the form of Jae Myeong draws near. As usual, we have another jam-packed episode, but how do the viewers feel about these new developments?First topic I would like to comment on is Cha Ok's character. In this episode, I think we get to see that Cha Ok isn't a completely heartless woman. She did love her daughter at some point and seeing al

    'Pinocchio' finishes off this week with what I dare to say is its best episode yet. I haven't felt this excited for a drama in a really long time. This episode was very fast-paced. Amidst dramas that like to take their time dragging problems out, I appreciate that this one cuts to the chase, especially when it comes to the Dal Po and Jae Myeong storyline. I did not expect Dal Po to suspect Jae Myeong of being a murderer so soon, for Jae Myeong to

    The brothers finally meet under unfortunate circumstances. Now that they have walked down separate paths, how will their relationship develop? Can they still be the loving brothers they once were now that they seem to be working on opposite sides?Once again, everything about the brothers' storyline is heartbreaking, but it's executed very well. I like the way that they meet, even if it's sad. While big brother Jae Myeong (whom I referred to as Ji
