Wedding bells (almost, kinda) for Jung Jun Ho
by | April 28, 2008 | 15 Comments
It is with some trepidation that I read the articles for this post — not out of some kind of uber-fannish love for actor Jung Jun Ho (although he IS handsome), but because I am assiduously avoiding any news that is related to The Last Scandal of My Life for fear of being spoiled as... More »

by | April 27, 2008 | 16 Comments
Singer Bada carries the Olympic torch through Seoul, surrounded by plainclothes policemen, April 27. On a shallow note, she looks fantastic. (Unfortunately, the event was not without controversy.) Tags: Bada... More »

The Last Scandal of My Life: Episode 7
by | April 27, 2008 | 21 Comments
What can I say except for what I’ve already said? Last Scandal of My Life is fresh, funny, and super-addicting. I know the series ended today, and I hope to be all caught up soon. But I’m not (too) impatient to get to the end — how can I be, when all the episodes in... More »

The Last Scandal of My Life: Episodes 5 & 6
by | April 25, 2008 | 37 Comments
First, WITH S2 will be subtitling this (as a side project, so please be patient!), so I hope you’ll give them your thanks — it’s a terrific show and well worth the attention. Second, since I’m behind on the series, I’ll ask once more just as a reminder to PLEASE DON’T SPOIL the later episodes!... More »

Who Are You: Episode 15
by | April 24, 2008 | 45 Comments
(I just love the look on Yoon Kye Sang’s face here.) This episode was chock-full of moving moments as things start wrapping up (or readying for the final wrap-up). I’m a little nervous that the extension could mess with the pacing of the finale, but I think the producers must have had decent notice, so... More »

Who Are You: Episode 14
by | April 23, 2008 | 54 Comments
As much as I like the romantic moments between Seung Hyo and Young In (and the gradual, measured way that’s progressed), my favorite moments are becoming more and more the scenes between Seung Hyo and Il Gun. It’s their give-and-take: Seung Hyo is slowly coming to enjoy life through Young In’s and Il Gun’s prodding,... More »

Tim: What would Jesus do?
by | April 22, 2008 | 21 Comments
Tim, the man with the smooth velvety singing voice, is taking to the stage — as an actor. Perhaps in keeping with his well-known strong Christian faith, his role is in the musical Jesus Jesus (which, as far as I know, is not the same as Jesus Christ Superstar), and he takes on the titular...

Who Are You? extended by one episode
by | April 22, 2008 | 16 Comments
Okay, NOW I can relax — Who Are You‘s one-episode extension is officially confirmed. I’d been expecting this, but didn’t want to jump the gun — usually when a drama goes off-schedule due to some kind of programming issue (in this case, election coverage), the station does something to even out the broadcasts, whether by...
