Here are alllllllll of your Moon Lovers
by | August 24, 2016 | 136 Comments
Moon Lovers: Scarlet Heart: Goryeo is just about ready to launch, which means in less than a week we’re really looking at Mondays to become Moon-days, what with this drama on SBS and its competitor over on KBS, Moonlight Drawn By Clouds. Which, I guess, isn’t such a random observation considering that’s what Monday means... More »

Moonlight Drawn By Clouds: Episode 2
by | August 23, 2016 | 121 Comments
The cuteness continues, and these two are at it again with more bickering and adorable petty pranking. Today the tables turn with the power dynamic upturned and the advantage shifting in the opposite direction, and we waste no time getting to the central setup, forcing our heroine into this unplanned new territory. I love that... More »

Moonlight Drawn By Clouds: Episode 1
by | August 22, 2016 | 144 Comments
Moonlight Drawn By Clouds is basically cuteness overload. It’s not your grandpa’s sageuk, or even your mother’s sageuk, and makes no claims to historical realism. If anything, this is your little sister’s sageuk, full of puppies and rainbows and an effervescent bright spirit, and I mean that in all of the good ways—it’s youthful but... More »

Kim Hyun-joo goes back to high school for Fantastic
by | August 22, 2016 | 55 Comments
For a drama that involves a main character with a terminal disease, JTBC’s Fantastic sure looks upbeat, which is something I could really get behind. That’s not to say that thoughtful, sorrowful terminal-disease dramas don’t have their place… I just think their place just may be far, far away from me at this moment, and... More »

Seo In-gook transforms into Shopping King Louie
by | August 19, 2016 | 83 Comments
These newly released photos from the production of MBC’s upcoming rom-com series Shopping King Louie aren’t as exciting as I’d like my first-stills-from-a-drama to be, but it’s Seo In-gook and he’s looking sharp, so net gain. Seo In-gook didn’t bother taking a break after finishing up his cable drama Police Unit 38 recently, and is... More »

Hearts and smiles at Moonlight Drawn By Clouds’ press conference
by | August 18, 2016 | 122 Comments
How adorable is this cast? It’s not unusual for actors to be full of smiles on the day of their drama’s production press conference, but the cast of fusion fantasy romance Moonlight Drawn By Clouds seems especially bright-eyed and sparkly, and it puts a big goofy smile on my face. They’re just so young and... More »

Last, Time of Dog and Wolf writer returns with Night Light
by | August 16, 2016 | 18 Comments
It’s funny how much it matters how you frame information: When you tell me that the writer of well-received thrillers Time of Dog and Wolf and Last is coming back with a new drama, I get excited; then you tell me that the writer of disappointing historical shows Dr. Jin and Road No. 1 is... More »

Shin joins the con artists in Legend of the Blue Sea
by | August 15, 2016 | 25 Comments
Another addition has been announced for fantasy-romance Legend of the Blue Sea, one of the big buzz projects of the fall season, which stars Jeon Ji-hyun (You From Another Star) and Lee Min-ho (Heirs). It’s been a couple years since I’ve seen Cross Gene idol-actor Shin (Shin Won-ho) onscreen (in 2012’s Big), and now he’s... More »

Lee Jung-shin, Jung Da-bin join My Sassy Girl
by | August 12, 2016 | 14 Comments
Finally, we’re moving on in the casting process for SBS’s sageuk drama remake of My Sassy Girl, which seemed to spend an inordinate amount of time casting its lead actress (and then changing its mind in the end anyway). Now the drama is adding CNBLUE’s Lee Jung-shin (Cinderella and the Four Knights), who’s reportedly very... More »

Hot on the heels of the main leads, the second leads of JTBC’s upbeat human/romance drama Fantastic have their own character posters now, bringing the total count up to five. The initial posters featured series stars Kim Hyun-joo playing a drama writer with a terminal illness and Joo Sang-wook as the terrible actor who falls... More »
