Awkward family bonding for Superdaddy Yeol
by | February 18, 2015 | 43 Comments
I wasn’t sure I could see Lee Dong-gun playing a scraggly (albeit well-meaning) loafer type (he’s so pretty and chic!), but I love how well he pulls it off in the first teaser for Superdaddy Yeol, even if it’s barely a thirty-second glimpse of the character. I’d love for him to get a solid, endearing... More »

Introducing Divorce Lawyers (about to be) in Love
by | February 16, 2015 | 37 Comments
Here’s our first teaser for SBS’s upcoming rom-com Divorce Lawyer in Love, and while it only gives us the briefest glimpse of the setup, I can picture the leads, Yeon Woo-jin (Marriage Not Dating) and Jo Yeo-jung (Haeundae Lovers), having some cute chemistry. It’s the kind of show that’ll live or die based on that... More »

Ho-gu’s Love: Episode 3
by | February 16, 2015 | 60 Comments
It’s my turn to weigh in on Ho-gu’s Love! For being promoted as a light and zany opposites-attract romance, this show is surprisingly more heartfelt than I’d expected. There are lots of comedic moments, but the show is centered much more around the emotional development than the comedy, which gives it a more subdued overall... More »

Choi Ji-woo joins Grandpas Over Flowers as surprise guest
by | February 16, 2015 | 66 Comments
This is kind of perfect: Choi Ji-woo (Temptation, Suspicious Housekeeper) pulled off a surprise (thanks to — who else? — Na PD) when she arrived at the airport to join the unsuspecting cast in the latest installment of the globetrotting-halbaes variety show Grandpas Over Flowers. Returning for this latest edition were all of the original... More »

Dramabeans Podcast #27: The Healer edition
by | February 14, 2015 | 287 Comments
Hello everybody! It’s been a fun, exhilarating ride with this drama, and now that it’s over girlfriday and I felt it was appropriate to send off Healer with a toast and lots of (blubbering, incoherent) love. We know we’ve all said tons about this show already and maybe non-Healer fans are tired of hearing about... More »

While You Were Sleeping was to feature the film pairing of Rain (She’s So Lovable) and Su Ae (Thousand Day Promise) playing spouses, but now it looks like we’ll only getting half of that couple (at best): Su Ae has decided against the project, while Rain is still considering.

It’s oooooooover! Are we all still alive? And satisfied? And coherent? Healer wraps up its run in the spirit of the rest of the series, with one more tightly planned mission characterized by twists that are fun and feel-good… and maybe also a twist or two that’ll take a year off your life. But while... More »
