Jo Seung-woo considers cop drama Pied Piper for tvN
by | November 27, 2015 | 28 Comments
The moment I read that Jo Seung-woo (God’s Gift—14 Days) was in contention for tvN’s upcoming Pied Piper, the next drama from Liar Game PD Kim Hong-sun, I pretty much thought, “Yup, perfect fit.” That’s partly because I think he’s great at everything, but also because he’s got the chops and the grit to carry...

Village: Secret of Achiara: Episode 14
by | November 25, 2015 | 46 Comments
You’ve gotta hand it to Village—it sure doesn’t lack for twists. Some of them are more surprising than others (and some aren’t very surprising at all), but I respect the drama for stocking the show up to the brim with plot, secrets, and ever-changing directions. The characters continue to develop dimensions, and as we head... More »

Fortunes of romance and fate for Cheese in the Trap
by | November 23, 2015 | 75 Comments
Here are a couple more teasers to whet our appetites for tvN’s upcoming campus-set romance-thriller drama Cheese in the Trap, though I’m still trying to figure out where the mystery and thrills come from. So far it looks like a straightforward rom-com with a coolly perfect hero and a plucky everygirl, but every description makes... More »

Village: Secret of Achiara: Episode 13
by | November 19, 2015 | 75 Comments
So-yoon persists in digging and digging, despite the fact that nearly the whole town is determined to stonewall her. She may not be the shrewdest investigator around (her tactics can be aggravatingly clumsy), but persistence does pay off, and anger fuels boldness. Watching her in action feels a little like throwing eggs to chip away... More »
