I have a feeling this is just the beginning of a wave of casting stories we’ll be seeing for the young stars of JTBC’s thoughtful mystery Solomon’s Perjury. The show might be a ratings underdog, but it really made the right move in casting young unknowns who get to showcase their acting chops in a... More »

The bloody battle for the people’s hearts begins in Rebel
by | January 16, 2017 | 36 Comments
I spent months only seeing Yoon Kyun-sang (Doctors) as a giant baby who loves fluffy kitties in Three Meals a Day, so it’s a little jarring to see him covered in blood and making battle cries. But given his experience as a warrior in sageuk epic Six Flying Dragons, I think he’ll be in his... More »

Why You Should Watch: Biscuit Teacher Star Candy
by | January 14, 2017 | 164 Comments
Since the universe decided to be cruel and leave us hanging with no new episode of Goblin today, it seemed like a good day to go digging around in the old drama vault for a Gong Yoo marathon. Because you can never have enough Gong Yoo in your drama-watching life, I say. When we first... More »

The Lonely Shining Goblin: Episode 13
by | January 13, 2017 | 688 Comments
So many big things are happening in this show lately that part of me is excited (finally, big plot movement!) and part of me is scared for what’ll be left for the final three episodes (flashbacks and musical interludes?). But let’s focus on what we do get, because it’s pretty momentous stuff, and we gotta... More »

Sweet and lovable Strong Woman Do Bong-soon is on her way
by | January 12, 2017 | 83 Comments
Ah finally, some more updates on Strong Woman Do Bong-soon. I’ve been eagerly anticipating Park Bo-young’s new drama, because it already feels like ages ago when she was cracking us up as a ghost-possessed girl in Oh My Ghostess. This time, she’s in a new rom-com where she plays a woman with superhuman strength, who... More »

It’s been a while since the Korean drama remake of American crime procedural Criminal Minds was first announced, but casting is now underway with offers out to Lee Jun-ki (Moon Lovers: Scarlet Heart Ryeo) and Kim Ah-joong (Wanted) to headline. I think it’ll be nice to see Lee Jun-ki taking a break from historical dramas... More »

Glimpses of a happy future with a stranger in Tomorrow With You
by | January 10, 2017 | 46 Comments
I really love the dreamy tone of Tomorrow With You’s latest teasers—they take on the same feel as the first poster for the drama, highlighting a fated encounter between our leads Shin Mina (Oh My Venus) and Lee Je-hoon (Signal). I wasn’t expecting such a moody, contemplative vibe from the PD of laugh-out-loud comedies Oh... More »

The Lonely Shining Goblin: Episode 11
by | January 6, 2017 | 366 Comments
Sunny becomes the focal point of this episode, which is a nice change of pace, though of course it really boils down to how much angst she causes one goblin and one reaper. If she thought Reaper was the weirdest man she’d ever met, she’s got another thing coming. One thing’s for sure—she won’t be... More »

Legend of the Blue Sea: Episode 15
by | January 5, 2017 | 261 Comments
You can always count on this show to find the romancey shenanigans in any situation, no matter how many lives and legends and fates are at stake. It’s a relief, since I was bracing myself for some brooding and some idiocy of the noble variety, after yesterday’s revelations. But there’s nothing better than seeing our... More »
