Angry Mom’s breakout rookie Ji-soo joins youth movie
by | April 24, 2015 | 52 Comments
Agh, I love this kid. So, so much. I know that rookie actor Ji-soo’s charm is ninety-five percent Go Bok-dong, his tough-on-the-outside, gooey-cookie-on-the-inside high school badass character in MBC’s Wednesday-Thursday drama Angry Mom. My brain knows this, but the drama is still current and I haven’t really worked out the... More »

by | April 24, 2015 | 66 Comments
I Remember You is the new title for the drama formerly known as Hello Monster, which is a change I’m not too excited about, since at least Hello Monster was distinctive. Generic is what I think of when I hear I Remember You, which sounds more like an amnesia melo... More »

Angry Mom: Episode 12
by | April 23, 2015 | 58 Comments
The thing about a secret identity is, you kinda have to try and keep it secret to use it to your advantage. As the group of people in the know grows larger by the second, Kang-ja’s situation becomes even more precarious with every move she makes. Thankfully there’s also an... More »

Yoo Yeon-seok tempts Im Soo-jung with the Perfect Proposal
by | April 23, 2015 | 42 Comments
I don’t know why it always trips me up to see Yoo Yeon-seok as a dark character, since that’s pretty much the type he always plays in movies. It’s just that Answer Me 1994 and Youths Over Flowers left such a strong impression that the sadistic bad guy characters feel... More »

I love it when a team comes together. We’ve already had a lot of solid teamwork in play, but with more people cottoning on, the bigger the inner circle gets. And while Kang-ja has been a fine solo crusader all this while, it’s gratifying to see her acknowledge that she... More »

by | April 22, 2015 | 21 Comments
Aw, look at those big smiles on the set of tvN’s Ex-Girlfriend Club. Granted, we may not see them for a while since Byun Yo-han and Song Ji-hyo are exes at the outset of the drama, but seeing them so smiley makes me hope for cute moments on their way... More »
