by | April 29, 2016 | 12 Comments
Hm, I’m still not entirely sure I know what dramaland means by “variety drama”—and that’s after seeing some, even—but they keep giving them a try, and a new one is in the works at tvN called After the Play Ends (working title). Two actors, Baek Sung-hyun (Hwajung, Beloved Eun-dong) and Minhyuk of idol group BtoB... More »

Kang Ye-won headlines 4-episode KBS drama Baek-hee Has Returned
by | April 29, 2016 | 10 Comments
When I first heard about KBS scheduling four-episode drama Baek-hee Has Returned at the last minute to air before Beautiful Mind, I thought it would be mostly filler — potentially entertaining, but mostly there to give Beautiful Mind a few extra weeks of preparation.

Goodbye Mr. Black: Episode 13
by | April 27, 2016 | 36 Comments
It’s a tough day for Swan, who gets thrown by some unexpected revelations and continues to bear the brunt of continued noble idiocy. The reveal isn’t much of a shocker for us, since this drama never quite manages to make the most of its plot twists, and subtlety tends to get bludgeoned over the head... More »

Beautiful Mind gets delayed, KBS schedules 4-episode drama in interim
by | April 26, 2016 | 22 Comments
We’ll have to wait just a little longer to see Beautiful Mind air, with KBS announcing that it’ll be squeezing in a short drama titled Baek-hee Has Returned to follow current Monday-Tuesday drama Neighborhood Lawyer Jo Deul-ho.

Lush character posters for fantasy sageuk Mirror of the Witch
by | April 25, 2016 | 26 Comments
I’m keeping my fingers crossed for Mirror of the Witch, which just keeps looking prettier and prettier — the teasers have been beautifully shot and atmospheric, and these character posters are colorful and eye-catching. And also tinged with melancholy, judging from everyone’s sad or worried expressions in them. Yoon Shi-yoon puts a new spin on... More »
