by | May 23, 2015 | 5 Comments
Innnteresting, suddenly I’m a lot more interested in the upcoming SBS drama Yong-pal — although with the God’s Gift–14 Days director and Reset writer onboard, my interest was already piqued. But then you throw Joo-won (Cantabile Tomorrow, Good Doctor) into the mix, and well, I’m listening. Yong-pal is about a doctor who falls into a... More »

Double lives and disguises for tvN’s Hidden Identity
by | May 22, 2015 | 19 Comments
Hidden Identity may be a crime thriller, but based on these teasers and behind-the-scenes clips, I’m hoping for a healthy dose of fun as well. It looks like the cast is enjoying themselves and feeling comfortable around each other, what with Park Sung-woong being deadpan and droll, Yoon So-yi being teasing, and Lee Won-jong saying...

by | May 21, 2015 | 17 Comments
JTBC’s disaster drama D-Day continues with the casting process, with Ha Suk-jin (Legendary Witches) joining the ranks of the almost-cast (by which I mean, he’s considering positively but not confirmed, nothing’s decided yet, yada yada). That’s par for the course these days, both in dramaland as a whole and this drama specifically, which has mentioned... More »

Warm and Cozy: Episode 3
by | May 20, 2015 | 97 Comments
Gah, how can our hero be so exasperating and endearing in equal measure? He’s a total scamp, and it’s so hard to resist, even when I’m mad at him. It makes it really easy to imagine what our heroine is feeling, that’s for certain. Warm and Cozy continues to be light and refreshing, its wafer-thin... More »

Kim Hee-ae in talks to become Mrs. Cop
by | May 19, 2015 | 13 Comments
Endlessly elegant Kim Hee-ae (Secret Love Affair, Elegant Lie, A Wife’s Credentials) is being courted to take the lead in an SBS drama titled Mrs. Cop, and that title makes me laugh, so of course she has to do it. Granted, Mrs. Cop isn’t described as a comedy but rather a crime chase thriller where... More »

But the latest news out of the show is that SBS is looking to extend its 16-episode run to 18, pushing its finale another week. According to a source... More »

Two Su Aes, one Mask
by | May 18, 2015 | 55 Comments
Oh, is THIS what Mask is actually about — a switched-places doppelganger story? There was no mention before of Su Ae playing two characters, but there’s no doubt about it in the teaser below, where the two Su Aes come face to face in wide-eyed shock to run into each other for the first time....

Girl Who Sees Smells: Episode 14
by | May 16, 2015 | 131 Comments
Hello, folks! I’m just popping in to pinch-hit this episode, which I’m happy to do since I’ve been enjoying the show with its cute chemistry and (as funny as it sounds) lightweight murder mystery. And while I would never argue that there aren’t flaws in the show, I find enough to keep me entertained. Episode... More »
