EXO’s Chanyeol in consideration for MBC’s Gaia
by | April 24, 2016 | 40 Comments
I suppose I shouldn’t be surprised that a project backed by SM C&C would cast idols, so it makes sense for them to populate the project with their own stars: Gaia, the MBC drama in the works about an idol and an ordinary girl who crash-land on an uninhabited island, is courting EXO idol Chanyeol...

Beans of Wisdom, with a side of carbs
by | April 23, 2016 | 35 Comments
The Beans of Wisdom are awfully starchy this week, but only in the best way—the drama news has been carb-loaded, and it’s only fitting that the comments follow suit. Of course, there are a good mix of other comments too, but why describe when you can read? Without further ado… “EXO’s Suho stars in fantasy... More »

by | April 21, 2016 | 33 Comments
Time to check back in with MBC’s upcoming “adventure sageuk” drama Flower in Prison, for which we now have a handful of teasers.

by | April 21, 2016 | 12 Comments
So maybe the plot of medical drama Beautiful Mind doesn’t exactly grip me, but if the show keeps adding actors I like, it won’t be easy to ignore. The drama has offers out to Jang Hyuk (Master of Trade—Inn 2015) and Park So-dam (The Priests, Because It’s the First Time), and now is also in... More »

Goodbye Mr. Black: Episode 11
by | April 20, 2016 | 34 Comments
Ratings more than doubled for Goodbye Mr. Black today, and while I’d like to attribute it to a rise in story quality (which did happen), I suppose really we have to attribute it to the fact that Descended From the Sun is no longer in the race. (Although, is it sad that ratings doubled and... More »

Dark magic and cursed fates in Mirror of the Witch
by | April 20, 2016 | 30 Comments
I missed seeing the first teaser for Mirror of the Witch when it came out a couple days ago, but better late than never, right? The teaser is rather short, but it does reinforce my impression of the fantasy fusion historical drama as a gorgeously directed series tinged with a dark feel, which suits its... More »
