Two Su Aes, one Mask
by | May 18, 2015 | 58 Comments
Oh, is THIS what Mask is actually about — a switched-places doppelganger story? There was no mention before of Su Ae playing two characters, but there’s no doubt about it in the teaser below, where the two Su Aes come face to face in wide-eyed shock to run into each other for the first time....

  It’s Name That Drama again! As always, feel free to email us your questions and requests for future Name That Drama installments.   I’m not TOTALLY sure this is a real question… Are you trolling me? You might be trolling me.

Girl Who Sees Smells: Episode 14
by | May 16, 2015 | 132 Comments
Hello, folks! I’m just popping in to pinch-hit this episode, which I’m happy to do since I’ve been enjoying the show with its cute chemistry and (as funny as it sounds) lightweight murder mystery. And while I would never argue that there aren’t flaws in the show, I find enough to keep me entertained. Episode... More »

The Producers: Episode 1
by | May 15, 2015 | 147 Comments
The veil finally lifts on KBS’s hyped experimental-format variety-drama The Producers, and I’m happy to report that it’s great. I was afraid it wouldn’t live up to its hype (since there was ever so much of it), but the show delivers, and I’m pleased. One of the show’s big selling points was the incorporation of... More »

More casting possibilities and confusion for Answer Me 1988
by | May 14, 2015 | 33 Comments
Okay, here’s a bit more information about possible casting for Answer Me 1988, but as always with this show, take it with a huge grain of salt. In a nutshell: Park Bo-gum (Cantabile Tomorrow) may be cast, and Han Groo (Marriage Not Dating) most likely will not. I know, we hardly even know she was... More »

Choi Siwon cameos as inept thief for Masked Prosecutor
by | May 14, 2015 | 35 Comments
Ahhhhhaha, I want this, and I want this now. As far as I’m concerned, Choi Siwon should only play idiots and goofballs, because he cracks me up so. Plus, he has a pretty good sense of humor and can have fun poking fun at himself, whether it’s playing a terrible actor (Oh My Lady) or... More »

Occult rom-com Ghostess adds a cop and a PD
by | May 14, 2015 | 30 Comments
I’ve liked every addition to Oh My Ghostess thus far, so I’m happy to hear that Im Joo-hwan is also joining the cast. I haven’t caught his latest projects (Ugly Alert, Shine or Go Crazy), but I have liked him whenever I’ve seen him (Tamra the Island, What’s Up), and I definitely like that the... More »

Warm and Cozy: Episode 1
by | May 13, 2015 | 148 Comments
Just as the title says, Warm and Cozy turns out to be a warm and cozy show, in a nicely comfortable way. It’s not the most exciting first hour of a show ever, and perhaps it could have been bolstered by a heavier dose of plot, but this is a drama I’m watching for mood... More »

Oh Snap! Put your hands in the air for Masked Prosecutor
by | May 13, 2015 | 51 Comments
Okay, Kim Sun-ah looks way too glamorous in these Masked Prosecutor stills to be a detective on the job — more like a fashion model posing in a cop-themed shoot, maybe — but I’m certainly not going to complain about her kicking ass and fighting crime. And Joo Sang-wook should always play comically arrogant types,... More »

Oh My Ghostess casts Kwak Shi-yang as pretty-boy chef
by | May 13, 2015 | 27 Comments
I always like seeing talented newcomers getting more work, so it’s good to hear that Kwak Shi-yang, who came on the scene out of nowhere to take a lead in Mnet’s Persevere, Gu Hae-ra, is joining Oh My Ghostess on tvN, which is the new series from the High School King of Savvy producers. Kwak... More »
