Hyde, Jekyll, Me: Episode 20 (Final)
by | March 26, 2015 | 139 Comments
On the one hand, the finale of Hyde, Jekyll, Me finally gives me what I’ve been wanting from the show. On the other, I’ve been waiting for nineteen episodes for this stuff to happen, which kind of takes the punch out of getting what I want. It’s time to face the music and decide once... More »

Joo Sang-wook and Kim Sun-ah for new KBS vigilante drama
by | March 26, 2015 | 84 Comments
Okay, why does the mental picture of Joo Sang-wook as a caped crusader immediately give me the giggles? Maybe it’s because he’s been letting loose in a string of rom-coms lately (Birth of a Beauty, Sly and Single Again), but I can so picture him in a ridiculous hero costume involving mostly tights. Technically, the... More »

No matter how much Seo-jin has come to accept Robin as his own person, we knew that he would have to heal eventually. As much as we’re rooting for Seo-jin to be strong enough to stand on his own, it’s tough to see how terrified Robin is about vanishing completely. But the truth is that... More »

Nam Joo-hyuk up for first starring role in School 2015
by | March 25, 2015 | 41 Comments
I’m not sure if Nam Joo-hyuk is quite leading man material yet, but I guess that’s the beauty of the School series — it takes newbies and spits them out stars. The 21-year-old model has been making quite the splash on cable in the JTBC variety show I’m Going To School, along with a supporting... More »

Hyeri in contention for Answer Me 1988
by | March 24, 2015 | 84 Comments
Erm, am I missing something? Is Hyeri good in things that aren’t Hyde, Jekyll, Me? Granted, that’s the one and only project I’ve seen her in (and maybe you guys will tell me that she’s wonderful in her cable drama Seonam Girls’ High Investigation Unit), but I can’t say that I’m excited to hear that...

Jo Yoon-hee to cameo in Producer as Kim Soo-hyun’s first love
by | March 23, 2015 | 28 Comments
Aw man, was Chun Song-yi busy? I know, I know, we can’t actually encourage more Do Manager associations for Kim Soo-hyun’s new drama; besides, if Jeon Ji-hyun actually did cameo, Cha Tae-hyun would totally have dibs on first love status with her. Jo Yoon-hee is the latest addition to KBS’s new showbiz drama Producer, and... More »

by | March 23, 2015 | 52 Comments
Aw, Kang Min-hyuk is such a cutie pie. I know that everyone in Heirs was too old to play high school, but he seemed on the younger end of the lot, and I can see him being a good fit for the coming-of-age School franchise. KBS Monday-Tuesday drama Who Are You–School 2015 currently has an... More »

by | March 22, 2015 | 30 Comments
Cable network OCN’s paranormal crime procedural Ghost-Seeing Detective Cheoyong is gunning for a second season this year. It’s a show that had relatively low buzz despite good numbers (2.7% ratings back when it aired last February to April), though at this point a second season is almost a given for OCN dramas. Leading man Oh... More »
