Name That Drama: Twisty mouths and kissing in the dark
by | September 1, 2015 | 72 Comments
  It’s Name That Drama again! As always, feel free to email us your questions and requests for future Name That Drama installments.   Mouth-twister I’m emailing because of a drama I can’t seem to remember much at all. I asked and looked everywhere but can’t seem to find it. All I remember was a... More »

The upward climb begins in KBS’s Master of Trade—Inn 2015
by | September 1, 2015 | 53 Comments
The first teaser for KBS’s sageuk drama Master of Trade—Inn 2015 gave us a taste of the overall premise of the drama (merchants of Joseon!) but not its plot (…what about the merchants of Joseon?), so I’m glad that the second teaser shows a little more of the story. (A little. I’ll still take it.)... More »

by | August 31, 2015 | 139 Comments
I can’t believe it was so long ago, but girlfriday and I were recently reminiscing on the hilarious stories we’d collected the first time we put out a call for Drama Addiction Stories (you can read some of the top entries here), and decided we should really ask for more of them. Because we here... More »

Yook Sung-jae considers joining the Village ranks
by | August 31, 2015 | 46 Comments
I like the names that keep cropping up for SBS’s mystery-thriller drama The Village: Secret of Achiara, which has been adding solid actors like Moon Geun-young (Goddess of Fire Jung-yi), Shin Eun-kyung (Oh My Ghostess), Ohn Joo-wan (Punch), and Kim Jae-wook (Age of Feeling). On top of liking the actors, it also suggests that the... More »

Twenty Again: Episode 1
by | August 28, 2015 | 127 Comments
It’s a promising beginning for Twenty Again, which starts off by putting our heroine in some sad places but does so with a nice touch of humor—she may feel sad, but the show maintains a lightness and sense of comedy that promises a more buoyant future. I like this approach, because I don’t want to... More »

Scholar Who Walks the Night: Episode 15
by | August 26, 2015 | 236 Comments
I think I’d like an episode that wasn’t predicated on a noble sacrifice (pretty please?), which seems to be such a regular occurrence here in Scholar-land that I cease to find it a moving plot point. But if you press me to find a silver lining about it, I suppose I prefer episodes like this... More »

She Was Pretty’s first teaser doles out sweetness and kisses
by | August 26, 2015 | 77 Comments
Okay, fine, ONE kiss, not multiples. Still, I’ll take it. (Warning: There is a video that auto-plays in this post. Sorry! It’s the only one MBC has released that allows us to watch the first teaser for She Was Pretty, sadly.) The teaser gives us a cute glimpse into the rom-com’s leads and their chemistry,... More »
