From shark to sappy romantic in Falling for Innocence
by | March 30, 2015 | 26 Comments
Every time I see more promo materials for JTBC’s new heart transplant melodrama Falling for Innocence, the funnier and cuter it looks.

When I first heard about The Superman Age, I wasn’t sure what to expect from the comedy about characters developing superpowers if they hit the age of 25 with their virginity intact — it sounded fun, but would it be slapstick? Lowbrow? Gag comedy? What I didn’t expect was for... More »

Unprecedented team back with Six Flying Dragons
by | March 29, 2015 | 55 Comments
I posted about the drama Chaebol’s Daughter possibly getting the post-Heard It Through the Grapevine timeslot on SBS, but looks like they’ll have to wait a little longer to air, because a different drama has secured that slot. Instead of a present-day drama about a rich woman wanting to find... More »

Kolorful Palette: Princess poised [Shine or Go Crazy]
by | March 28, 2015 | 29 Comments
I had some requests to draw Yeo-won from Shine or Go Crazy and I can’t say that it took much to convince me since she is pretty awesome. On paper she seems fairly run-of-the-mill and hits on many of the classic markers for sageuk second leads: conniving, selfish, pompous, and... More »

by | March 27, 2015 | 45 Comments
Ah, the ordinary life. Falling in love, holding hands, raising a child that isn’t your own, disappointing your parents. Yep. Totally ordinary. But is being ordinary overrated?
