Awkward family bonding for Superdaddy Yeol
by | February 18, 2015 | 43 Comments
I wasn’t sure I could see Lee Dong-gun playing a scraggly (albeit well-meaning) loafer type (he’s so pretty and chic!), but I love how well he pulls it off in the first teaser for Superdaddy Yeol, even if it’s barely a thirty-second glimpse of the character. I’d love for him to get a solid, endearing... More »

by | February 16, 2015 | 37 Comments
Here’s our first teaser for SBS’s upcoming rom-com Divorce Lawyer in Love, and while it only gives us the briefest glimpse of the setup, I can picture the leads, Yeon Woo-jin (Marriage Not Dating) and Jo Yeo-jung (Haeundae Lovers), having some cute chemistry. It’s the kind of show that’ll live or die based on that... More »

Ho-gu’s Love: Episode 3
by | February 16, 2015 | 60 Comments
It’s my turn to weigh in on Ho-gu’s Love! For being promoted as a light and zany opposites-attract romance, this show is surprisingly more heartfelt than I’d expected.

Returning for this latest edition were all of the original... More »

Dramabeans Podcast #27: The Healer edition
by | February 14, 2015 | 282 Comments
Hello everybody! It’s been a fun, exhilarating ride with this drama, and now that it’s over girlfriday and I felt it was appropriate to send off Healer with a toast and lots of (blubbering, incoherent) love. We know we’ve all said tons about this show already and maybe non-Healer fans are tired of hearing about... More »
