Park Man-Geun remains scary even once we know who he is. I wasn’t sure if the writer could reveal Park Man Geun’s identity without ruining his mystique.

So close and yet so far. Sometimes “Pride and Prejudice” gets me by the throat—episode 5, say, or episodes 17 and 18. And sometimes the pieces don’t add up, like in episode 19. It’s a bumpy ride here as we close in on the finale. It does appear that “Pride and Prejudice” will have two … Read more
