Ex-Girlfriend Club: Series review
by | June 14, 2015 | 110 Comments
Romantic-comedy series Ex-Girlfriend Club just wrapped this weekend on tvN, and despite being dealt a disappointing cutback that shortened the show by four episodes, the drama went out in much the manner of its run: sweet, understated, and feel-good. This was never a drama where Big Things happened, focusing more on everyday interactions and relationships,... More »

The Producers: Episode 10
by | June 13, 2015 | 394 Comments
Practically everyone takes steps forward today, and while some hearts get bruised in the process, pain in the name of progress at least speaks of growth. The show is still playing Answer Me with its lovelines, but I’ve reached the point where I’ve grown attached to their individual trajectories more than their coupled ones, so... More »

Warm and Cozy: Episode 10
by | June 11, 2015 | 193 Comments
Good news: Things get better! Not-as-good news: Better is a relative term. At least there’s more cuteness sprinkled into today’s episode, along with more decision-making, which keeps the frustration levels down, and our hero inches closer toward being able to express his feelings in a functional adult way. I suppose it’s a good sign that... More »

Scholar Who Walks the Night sends both leads to the hospital
by | June 10, 2015 | 103 Comments
Oh no, what is going on over there on the set for Scholar Who Walks the Night? Yesterday the vampire-sageuk-fusion-fantasy drama sent lead actor Lee Jun-ki to the hospital with a fractured nose (not the beautiful, beautiful nose!), and now we’re hearing that leading lady Lee Yubi is also out with an injured back. Eek!... More »

Kim Ji-won cameos as Kim Bum’s girlfriend for Hidden Identity
by | June 10, 2015 | 22 Comments
It’s only a guest appearance, but I won’t say no to seeing Kim Ji-won (Gap-dong, Heirs) putting in some screentime for tvN’s upcoming crime drama Hidden Identity, about a special investigative unit of undercover police officers. Better yet, she’ll be playing Kim Bum’s girlfriend, albeit only temporarily. Her character is also the younger sister to... More »

Name That Drama: A daughter-in-law contest and a witch doctor
by | June 9, 2015 | 82 Comments
  It’s Name That Drama again! As always, feel free to email us your questions and requests for future Name That Drama installments.   Competing for daughter-in-law rights: I saw this drama in 2010s. I just remember one scene but cannot remember the drama’s name. The main actor’s father puts on a competition for his... More »

Another teaser and a half for I Remember You
by | June 9, 2015 | 29 Comments
Finally, a teaser for I Remember You that actually looks like a teaser! ‘Cause I’m pretty sure this first video wasn’t so much a teaser as it was a word association exercise with lots of fonts. Granted, the teaser directly below is kind of just like that previous one, in that it tells us nothing... More »

The Superman Age: Series review
by | June 8, 2015 | 10 Comments
Cable comedy The Superman Age wrapped its run a couple weeks ago, after a somewhat low-key outing on tvN, and is a show I enjoyed immensely, though not necessarily because of a great plot or catchy pacing or even sharp writing. It showed glimmers of those things and had an interesting story, sure, but to... More »

Oh Snap! Dating or investigating?
by | June 8, 2015 | 55 Comments
I’ve gotten used to drama posters mostly being all the same these days, but I do find this one super cute for the KBS drama I Remember You, featuring Seo In-gook and Jang Nara as a police profiler and officer working on the same task force. I have to laugh a little at their respective... More »
