Sensory Couple adds Namgoong Min, Yoon Jin-seo
by | March 3, 2015 | 45 Comments
On one hand, I like these two new additions to Sensory Couple — but on the other hand, why are Namgoong Min (My Secret Hotel) and Yoon Jin-seo (Twelve Men in a Year) still stuck in second lead roles instead of headlining? (To be fair, it’s not that they’ve never played a drama lead, but... More »

Ho-gu’s Love: Episode 7
by | March 2, 2015 | 104 Comments
If last week’s developments spun the story in a sideways direction, today gives us answers and explanations, which shed a lot of light on what’s actually going on with these characters. I would have expected a story to have fully set up its main story well before the fourth week, but there’s an appeal to... More »

Kim So-hyun joins Yoochun (yet again) for Sensory Couple
by | March 2, 2015 | 54 Comments
Kim So-hyun (Reset, Suspicious Housekeeper) is joining SBS’s Sensory Couple, and she’ll be playing the little sister to the drama’s hero, played by Yoochun (Three Days). Aw, how cute. She’s a talented budding actor and good enough to handle leading roles herself (though there just aren’t that many available for precocious 15-year-olds), though for now... More »

Kim Soo-hyun considers reteaming with You From Another Star writer
by | February 27, 2015 | 126 Comments
Considering how much of a mega-hit You From Another Star was for Kim Soo-hyun, it seems a no-brainer to consider coming back for another project with its writer, Park Ji-eun. He has received the offer to star in Park’s upcoming drama for KBS and is currently in the “favorably considering” stage, according to his management.... More »

I suppose if you’re going to make a drama about a chaebol, why not put that front and center in the title? That’s what the producers of A Warm Word (PD Choi Young-hoon, writer Ha Myung-hee) are doing with their next drama, which is titled (for now) Chaebol’s Daughter and plans to air on SBS.... More »

Oh Snap! Kim Hee-sun goes back to high school
by | February 25, 2015 | 21 Comments
I never doubted that the preternaturally fresh-faced Kim Hee-sun (Wonderful Season, Faith) could look younger than her 37 years, but hot damn, how does she wear a high school uniform for a flashback scene and make it look current? (She’s pictured with Oh Yoon-ah (You’re All Surrounded), who’s actually three years younger than Kim.) I... More »

Yeo Jin-gu falls in love with vampire for Orange Marmalade
by | February 25, 2015 | 72 Comments
Yes, it’s another vampire drama and another webtoon adaptation, but it’s Yeo Jin-gu! Surely that makes up for it? (Update: Ack! I made a mistake, he’s not the vampire, the girl is! Curses to my short memory and a thousand apologies, it’s totally my bad. Doing bows of penance as we speak.) We already knew... More »
