Happy Chuseok! The huge holiday week
in Korea means that almost everyone is on their way home to spend the holidays with their families, and even Kdramas are taking a breather today (the actual day of Chuseok), being replaced by seasonal programming. Well, almost all dramas, anyway. If you're looking for drama tonight on Korean TV, you just have one option--Playful Kiss

and company say goodbye for now at the big end-of-series celebration right here
