by | May 23, 2016 | 24 Comments
Ooh, after the fast-flying antics of High School King of Savvy and the adorable screwball comedy of Oh My Ghostess, I am definitely paying attention to PD Yoo Je-won’s next drama, which has just been announced for a fall broadcast on (as the others were) cable channel tvN.... More »

Lucky Romance’s charm-filled (literally) promo posters
by | May 23, 2016 | 41 Comments
Aw, the more I see of Lucky Romance, the more I really, really hope it pulls off the cute, vibrant spirit it’s touting from its promotional materials. It’s difficult to know for sure because the teasers so far have been pretty brief and I can’t really get a feel for what the show itself will... More »

B1A4’s Jinyoung in talks to join Moonlight Drawn By Clouds
by | May 22, 2016 | 53 Comments
The good news is that we may finally have a second lead in fantasy-youth-romance-sageuk Moonlight Drawn By Clouds, after BtoB idol Yook Sung-jae (Village: Secret of Achiara) dropped out of contention. I’m a liiiiittle wary of B1A4 idol Jinyoung (Warm and Cozy) being that replacement, though. Not all idols are created equal, KBS!... More »

Lucky Romance gets ready to test its fortunes and fates
by | May 20, 2016 | 68 Comments
MBC’s rom-com drama Lucky Romance is all set to premiere next week, and while I knew this was coming, it feels a little sudden to me, in a good way. We’ve had a steady trickle of promos (teasers, stills) but not really a big promo push, and I find it refreshing to head into a... More »

KBS in talks to extend Neighborhood Lawyer Jo Deul-ho
by | May 19, 2016 | 25 Comments
Neighborhood Lawyer Jo Deul-ho is performing well for KBS as the ratings leader on Mondays and Tuesdays, having just hit the 15% ratings mark this week. So it’s no surprise to hear that KBS is considering a 4-episode extension for the legal/underdog/human drama, and it seems easy enough to give it a few extra hours;... More »

Goodbye Mr. Black: Episode 19
by | May 18, 2016 | 40 Comments
We’re almost at the end! While I’d like to tell you all that my excitement is because we’re nearing the climax of a thrilling ride and about to get answers to the questions that have kept us guessing all along, I can’t quite bring myself to see the glass being that half-full. Mostly I’m glad... More »

Yeon Woo-jin drops in on Oh Hae-young Again for cameo
by | May 17, 2016 | 52 Comments
Aw, sometimes (or maybe most times) I really wish drama cameo appearances were longer. Yeon Woo-jin has just been announced as making an appearance on tvN’s newest hit, Oh Hae-young Again, and I feel like I’m just gonna want to see more of him. (It was this PD, Song Hyun-wook, who cast him in Marriage... More »

An introduction to Dramaworld: Episodes 1-3
by | May 16, 2016 | 63 Comments
javabeans: Viki released its first original web series called Dramaworld last month, and since we were invited to screen it at its premiere, we figured we’d weigh in on it. At least the first part of it, since Viki is releasing the episodes gradually; I believe six episodes are viewable now, though subscribers with premium... More »

Wanted secures cast in Kim Ah-joong, Uhm Tae-woong, Ji Hyun-woo
by | May 16, 2016 | 38 Comments
Well, phew! Wanted has a cast, which is a relief because a few possible castings fell through (Kim Hyun-joo, Jin Gu) with just over a month until its premiere, and since the thriller premise sounded intriguing, I’d hoped the show would pull it together. Now it’s secured its three main leads: Kim Ah-joong (Punch), Uhm... More »

Black-and-white couple for fantasy-romance Scarlet Heart: Goryeo
by | May 15, 2016 | 115 Comments
How many different ways can Lee Jun-ki look ethereally beautiful in sageuk garb? After all the many historical projects he’s done thus far (King and the Clown, Iljimae, Arang and the Magistrate, Joseon Gunman, Scholar Who Walks the Night) you’d think he’d start repeating looks, but apparently when you’re Lee Jun-ki, you never run out...
