    ANGEL EYES EPISODE 4Twelve years ago, Soo Wan's first love, Dong Joo, left for America, and because of the machinations of her father, she never knew where he went. Now he's back, and she's still left in the dark.  In the last episode, we saw Dong Joo in a dolorous mood after Soo Wan is led away in another doctor's arms. This doctor is Ji Woon, Soo Wan's fiance.  After she returns, Dong Joo grabs her arm and pulls her closer. Instead of a kiss, t

    ANGEL EYES EPISODE 3Finally we catch a glimpse of our couple as adults. To me, they look quite different. The teenage actors had such chemistry, and, while not missing, it's different here. If there's something to be said, it's their optimism. I like that in a drama. Although the defining events of these people's lives seem tragic, Dong Joo and Soo Wan have overcome adversity and have come fairly far in their lives. Twelve years have passed since

    GABDONGI EPISODE 2In my last review, as some of you pointed out, I missed some major female characters. My reasons are twofold: first, I wasn't certain how relevant they were to the plot, and second, I didn't recognize our resident asylum psychologist, Dr. Maria Oh, in her civvies. :) With fake lashes, bangs, and a miniskirt, she looks like an entirely different person. The investigations proceed apace as two murders happen in the same night, the

    ANGEL EYES EPISODE 2When we last left off, Soo Wan had agreed to be Dong Joo's girlfriend. Dong Joo was ecstatic, shouting the news as far as his voice could carry it. But if you thought 'Angel Eyes' was done squeezing tears from us, you would be dead wrong.Still, there are more sweet moments ahead. She hands him an mp3 player and explains that it's for them only, to exchange music, to record the things they want to say to each other -- a modern

    'GABDONGI' EPISODE 1For more than 100 years, the civilized world has been host to monsters. The media has given them frightening names: the United States had the Zodiac Killer; England had Jack the Ripper; South Korea had Gap Dong. In 1996, a series of brutal murders took place in the fictional city of Iltan in Gyeonggi Province. An attempt to place the most likely suspect under arrest fails when he commits suicide. Seventeen years later the susp

    ANGEL EYES EPISODE 1Lovers are forced by circumstances to separate, only to find each other more than a decade later. The premise is not new - it's been played out in at least three dramas that I can think of right off the top of my head: 'Winter Sonata,' 'Emergency Couple,' and 'I Need Romance 3.' But there are very few original plots: action movies, for example recycle plots over and over, but it makes them no less thrilling. The window dressin

    EMERGENCY COUPLE EPISODE 21 (final episode)It is the very last episode of Emergency Couple. Few events can compare to the end of a series you've followed for awhile. It's like there's an empty space in your heart and in your thoughts after following a drama to its end. There are events and characters you will never forget, and this show is no exception. It cannot hold a candle to losing a loved one for sure, but it is still pretty sad. Yong Gyu a
