Goodbye Mr. Black: Episode 13
by | April 27, 2016 | 37 Comments
It’s a tough day for Swan, who gets thrown by some unexpected revelations and continues to bear the brunt of continued noble idiocy. The reveal isn’t much of a shocker for us, since this drama never quite manages to make the most of its plot twists, and subtlety tends to get bludgeoned over the head... More »

Beautiful Mind gets delayed, KBS schedules 4-episode drama in interim
by | April 26, 2016 | 22 Comments
We’ll have to wait just a little longer to see Beautiful Mind air, with KBS announcing that it’ll be squeezing in a short drama titled Baek-hee Has Returned to follow current Monday-Tuesday drama Neighborhood Lawyer Jo Deul-ho. Perhaps waiting is the point, because as much as I’d like to believe this is because KBS likes... More »

Lush character posters for fantasy sageuk Mirror of the Witch
by | April 25, 2016 | 26 Comments
I’m keeping my fingers crossed for Mirror of the Witch, which just keeps looking prettier and prettier — the teasers have been beautifully shot and atmospheric, and these character posters are colorful and eye-catching. And also tinged with melancholy, judging from everyone’s sad or worried expressions in them. Yoon Shi-yoon puts a new spin on... More »

EXO’s Chanyeol in consideration for MBC’s Gaia
by | April 24, 2016 | 41 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 22, 2016 | 27 Comments
Finally, some noodles for the Noodle God! Yes, technically I might have caught a glimpse of noodle in the previous teasers, but only just barely, and at least in this latest teaser we get noodles being made, being eaten, and being the cause of revenge. The teaser begins with our hero (Chun Jung-myung) telling us... More »
