Food, fists, and funny first encounters for Legend of the Blue Sea
by | October 25, 2016 | 86 Comments
The promos are flying fast and furious—and so are fists and feet, in this latest teaser for Legend of the Blue Sea. I’m happy to see that the tone is lighter and funnier in this teaser; not that I mind melancholy and romantic dramas, but I’d been expecting more comedy, particularly when we have the... More »

Ji-soo falls for Strong Woman Park Bo-young for JTBC drama
by | October 25, 2016 | 72 Comments
Ji-soo is on a roll! He just wrapped up work on JTBC’s recent Friday-Saturday drama Fantastic (and can still be seen in Moon Lovers: Scarlet Heart Ryeo, although that finished filming first), and now he’s lined up another JTBC project in Strong Woman Do Bong-soon. Or, as I think of it, That Drama I’m Excited... More »

Lee Min-ho is suited up and in disguise for Legend of the Blue Sea
by | October 24, 2016 | 78 Comments
More Lee Min-ho stills for Legend of the Blue Sea! You won’t hear me complaining, since I think this is the best he’s looked in… I can’t even remember. Years, definitely. (And it’s not just even about the welcome departure from the ugly sweater brigade, although that certainly helps.)... More »

There really is... More »

Park Hae-jin is tall, dark, and mysterious for Man to Man
by | October 20, 2016 | 87 Comments
First stills for Man to Man are out! They’re not necessarily very informative stills, but they do feature Park Hae-jin (Cheese in the Trap), and he looks sleek and stylish, so I suppose even if we don’t see him bodyguarding or performing cool undercover maneuvers, it’s enough to tide me over for now. The JTBC... More »

Moonlight Drawn By Clouds: Episode 18 (Final)
by | October 18, 2016 | 1,490 Comments
We’re at the end of the line, and that means it’s time to resolve conflicts, wrap up loose ends, answer our questions, give us a satisfying resolution, and leave us with a uplifting feeling of hope that while the drama is over, the characters live on, in that we can be happy with even when...

Oh Snap! One big happy family for the Man Living in Our House
by | October 18, 2016 | 48 Comments
Well, this cast is looking pretty cozy in their new promo posters, rather than full of suspicion over the intruder/usurper living in the family house, but I guess Su Ae (Mask) will have plenty of time to get friendly with Kim Young-kwang (D-Day) as they live together and she tries to figure out what happened...

Moonlight Drawn By Clouds: Episode 17

We’re in our final two hours! I am simultaneously looking forward to the ending tomorrow and a little loath to get there, partly because it’s been a pretty awesome ride that I’ll have to say goodbye to, and partly because I still don’t know how we’re going to get to where we’re going in the...
