by | September 18, 2015 | 83 Comments
Good news: Song Jae-rim (Age of Feeling, Unkind Women) has joined SBS’s upcoming drama Goodbye Mr. Black, which is already on my radar for what sounds like an entertaining plot (love those get-a-new-identity-and-get-revenge stories) and two stars I love, Lee Jin-wook (Time I’ve Loved You) and Moon Chae-won (Good Doctor). The downside, I suppose, is... More »

I’m relieved that the first-love story is more poignant than trite, but that’s nothing compared to the... More »
