by | June 29, 2013 | 44 Comments
I was already looking forward to The Face Reader for its star-studded cast: Song Kang-ho, Kim Hye-soo, and Lee Jung-jae in one movie is nothing to scoff at, and then you throw funny scene-stealer Jo Jung-seok and noona-killer Lee Jong-seok in the mix, and I’m lining up at the door. But then the movie released... More »

Yoon Jin-seo’s been hanging out on this side of the Pacific a lot lately. She’s got her movie Santa Barbara with Lee Sang-yoon that wrapped not too long ago, and now she’s back to LA for a new road movie with Kang Ji-hwan, called Shoot For the Sun.

You know, I was totally prepared to let this show slide under my radar because I’m up to my eyeballs in dramas right now, but then Kim Jae-wook had to go and sign on, and now I’m scouring the internet for stills. Bah. The new tvN ghost melodrama Who Are You stars So Yi-hyun and... More »

I Hear Your Voice: Episode 8
by | June 27, 2013 | 536 Comments
I feel like all I do is talk about how I love this show, but hell, I LOVE THIS SHOW. It’s got my heart locked away in a steel box, and I’m pretty sure I know who’s got the key. The story barrels on ahead into darkness, and our characters start to crack under the... More »

I Hear Your Voice: Episode 7
by | June 26, 2013 | 249 Comments
I don’t know if my heart can take much more of this. This show turns me into a nervous wreck, I tell you. Everything goes into full swing today—the crush, the budding romance, and the danger. Augh, the danger. If I could just put all the people I love in this world into a little... More »

by | June 25, 2013 | 55 Comments
Sung Joon (Gu Family Book, Shut Up: Flower Boy Band) has played his share of high school delinquents and genius deviants before, so this won’t be a huge stretch into new territory, but I am really interested in his next film Pluto, which looks dark — like Bleak Night/White Christmas dark — about a group...

Gu Family Book: Episode 23
by | June 24, 2013 | 224 Comments
I wish I could say that the episode leading up to the finale was spectacular, but I can’t. It’s a really underwhelming hour. First, the hero annoys me with his noble idiocy. Then, the villains annoy me with the lack of diversity in their repertoire of villainy. Then there’s an interlude where Dad gets a... More »

Okay, time to check back in with Sword and Flower, whose premiere (in a little over a week) totally crept up on me like a ninja cat. Where did June go, and why don’t I remember how I got here?
