by | August 11, 2016 | 28 Comments
Ask, and ye shall receive? When Let’s Eat alums Lee Soo-kyung, Shim Hyung-tak, and Lee Do-yeon all dropped by to make guest appearances for their old PD’s new show, Bring It On, Ghost, I’d wanted Let’s Eat 2′s Seo Hyun-jin (also of Oh Hae-young Again) to come back too, and now she is.... More »

Raise a glass (or eight) to Drinking Solo’s drink enthusiasts
by | August 8, 2016 | 30 Comments
Well, the conceit is straightforward and simple: Drinking Solo is about a bunch of people who drink alone, and based on the teaser videos, that’s the way they like it. With the PD of Let’s Eat at the helm, I expect similarly lighthearted and heart-warming tales of bonding through the characters’ love of drink, with... More »

Unpredictable laughs and tears in JTBC’s Fantastic
by | August 5, 2016 | 47 Comments
You know, you had me at “Joo Sang-wook playing a foot-actor.” It wasn’t until Joo Sang-wook took on comedy (Sly and Single Again, Birth of a Beauty) that I really thought he lit up the screen (though it’s true that his moment of reawakening can be traced back earlier to weekend saga Giant, and then...

Moonlight Drawn By Clouds promises unpredictable, hilarious, heart-stopping romance
by | August 3, 2016 | 105 Comments
I love the outright comedic tone of the Moonlight Drawn By Clouds promos, which acknowledge the outrageousness of its premise — the crown prince falls in love with his eunuch, who’s a girl passing herself off as a man — and are going after that absurdity full-force. I have a lot of fond memories of... More »

Aw, I love it when a cast clearly enjoys working together and comes back for another round. With Bring It On, Ghost director Park Joon-hwa having previously worked on both seasons of Let’s Eat, we’re seeing a parade of familiar faces both in the cast proper and in the cameo lineup, and Let’s Eat’s leading...

Pre-produced dramas are enjoying a nice push these days, and this is one of the many anticipated series that’ll be launching in the back half of this year: Saimdang, Light’s Diary, which has thankfully stepped away from the awkward “The Herstory” that used to be part of the title.

Aw yay, I’m happy to hear that Namgoong Min (Beautiful Gong Shim) is taking on a comedy next, even if it doesn’t sound like his character will be outright comedic: He’s confirmed signing onto the movie Temporary Special Agent, an action comedy about a desk jockey at the National Security Agency and a white-collar-crimes detective...
