Maybe you’ll be bad. You could be bad. Sure your writer wrote Gaksital which I loved, but that was a historical action... More »

Witch’s Romance hasn’t been the drama highest on my radar for the upcoming season, but I do find myself warming up to it with this set of promotional teasers and stills, which highlight a sharp rom-com vibe. The plot itself is hardly new—older woman, younger man, love in the workplace—but execution is all the thing,... More »

The clock really gets ticking in this episode, and Fate reasserts itself as the bitch we all know her to be. Just when I was starting to think our team had broken free of the path set in the first timeline, we’re reminded that Fate doesn’t like to be cheated, and exerts an inertia that... More »

Oh Snap! To the Grave
by | April 7, 2014 | 19 Comments
I hate when movies release only one still at a time (soooo stingy), but as far as single stills go, this one from action-crime thriller To the Grave is pretty compelling. This is the movie starring Lee Seon-kyun as a cop who makes a mistake that results in a death, then tries to cover it... More »
