Lucky Romance: Episode 2
by | May 26, 2016 | 172 Comments
The conflict is established, the characters are put in place, and now it’s time to let them clash and see what happens.

We’ve got another casting for Bring It On, Ghost, with Lee David (Mirror of the Witch) joining the rom-com-horror drama that pairs a ghost and an exorcist who end up living together, fighting together, and falling in love. It’s a quirky premise without an obvious ending in sight (at least, in a romantic sense), so... More »

Lucky Romance’s charm-filled (literally) promo posters
by | May 23, 2016 | 56 Comments
Aw, the more I see of Lucky Romance, the more I really, really hope it pulls off the cute, vibrant spirit it’s touting from its promotional materials.

by | May 20, 2016 | 68 Comments
MBC’s rom-com drama Lucky Romance is all set to premiere next week, and while I knew this was coming, it feels a little sudden to me, in a good way. We’ve had a steady trickle of promos (teasers, stills) but not really a big promo push, and I find it refreshing to head into a... More »
