KBS gives Producers-esque variety dramas a second try
by | January 2, 2016 | 52 Comments
Looks like KBS is ready to give its experimental variety-meets-drama format another go, despite meeting with mixed reviews (some of that very critical) the first time with The Producers. I’m surprised to hear of it, since it seemed like they were so quick to give up on the idea at the first resistance it got,... More »

2015 SBS Drama Awards
by | December 31, 2015 | 180 Comments
Whee, there’s eye candy galore today, here in No. 2 of 3 of the broadcaster drama awards (KBS’s awards post is forthcoming), here at the 2015 SBS Drama Awards. This event had perhaps a smidge more starpower than last night’s MBC Drama Awards, which I attribute to SBS having had more hit dramas in the... More »

2015 MBC Drama Awards
by | December 30, 2015 | 105 Comments
Do you think that if Ji Sung hadn’t been awarded the Daesang at the 2015 MBC Drama Awards, there’d have been actual mutiny? Not that there was much question that he would get it, but MBC has figured out ways to make head-scratcher decisions before. Like, say, suddenly increasing the number of award categories and...

Justice, pennies, and rules in OCN’s Neighborhood Hero
by | December 30, 2015 | 46 Comments
I am really feelin’ the dryly funny vibe of these Neighborhood Hero teasers: The show has all the slick stylishness of OCN’s dark action dramas, but the fun spirit of a tongue-in-cheek caper.

Could this cast be any more adorable? The four actors starring in the latest installment of the Youths Over Flowers variety franchise are looking rather dapper at their press conference, held on December 29 at Seoul’s Imperial Palace Hotel, and appear to be having a blast together. I can’t wait to see it in action.... More »

Everybody’s favorite grumplestiltskin, Lee Seo-jin, is crossing back to drama waters after dipping his toe into the variety pool (Grandpas Over Flowers) and getting sucked in by the Na PD riptide (Three Meals a Day, as well as all of the follow-up Grandpas seasons): He’s now considering a new MBC production titled Hundred-Day Wife, his...
