More casting possibilities and confusion for Answer Me 1988
by | May 14, 2015 | 33 Comments
Okay, here’s a bit more information about possible casting for Answer Me 1988, but as always with this show, take it with a huge grain of salt. In a nutshell: Park Bo-gum (Cantabile Tomorrow) may be cast, and Han Groo (Marriage Not Dating) most likely will not. I know, we hardly even know she was... More »

Choi Siwon cameos as inept thief for Masked Prosecutor
by | May 14, 2015 | 35 Comments
Ahhhhhaha, I want this, and I want this now. As far as I’m concerned, Choi Siwon should only play idiots and goofballs, because he cracks me up so. Plus, he has a pretty good sense of humor and can have fun poking fun at himself, whether it’s playing a terrible actor (Oh My Lady) or... More »

by | May 14, 2015 | 30 Comments
I’ve liked every addition to Oh My Ghostess thus far, so I’m happy to hear that Im Joo-hwan is also joining the cast. I haven’t caught his latest projects (Ugly Alert, Shine or Go Crazy), but I have liked him whenever I’ve seen him (Tamra the Island, What’s Up), and I definitely like that the... More »

Warm and Cozy: Episode 1
by | May 13, 2015 | 147 Comments
Just as the title says, Warm and Cozy turns out to be a warm and cozy show, in a nicely comfortable way. It’s not the most exciting first hour of a show ever, and perhaps it could have been bolstered by a heavier dose of plot, but this is a drama I’m watching for mood... More »

Oh Snap! Put your hands in the air for Masked Prosecutor
by | May 13, 2015 | 51 Comments
Okay, Kim Sun-ah looks way too glamorous in these Masked Prosecutor stills to be a detective on the job — more like a fashion model posing in a cop-themed shoot, maybe — but I’m certainly not going to complain about her kicking ass and fighting crime. And Joo Sang-wook should always play comically arrogant types,... More »

by | May 13, 2015 | 27 Comments
I always like seeing talented newcomers getting more work, so it’s good to hear that Kwak Shi-yang, who came on the scene out of nowhere to take a lead in Mnet’s Persevere, Gu Hae-ra, is joining Oh My Ghostess on tvN, which is the new series from the High School King of Savvy producers. Kwak... More »

javabeans: We’re at the end of another Grandpas Over Flowers trip! It’s been a fun ride, but I’d be lying if I didn’t say I’ll be disappointed if it doesn’t end with wedding announcements. Fine, I’ll take dating announcements. I’m not demanding. girlfriday: I really hope that they’re secretly dating by now. This entire series... More »

Smiles and scowls at press conference for The Producers
by | May 11, 2015 | 68 Comments
May 11 was press conference day for KBS’s The Producers, the “100% real variety drama” starring star actors playing variety producer-directors (and one starlet) in a show that’ll be both a workplace drama and an extravaganza of meta nods to the world it depicts. Unlike most dramaland shows about showbiz that invent a fictional world... More »

Flying fists and disguises for action thriller Hidden Identity
by | May 8, 2015 | 38 Comments
Shadows, subterfuge, and fisticuffs: What’s not to like? I was curious to see how Kim Bum (Goddess of Fire Jung-yi), once so adorably round-cheeked, would transition into a badass action-fighter role, and I’m glad to see that he takes it on with style (even if I can’t quite take the facial scruff seriously on him....
