Well not that I was all over So Ji-sub‘s new crime drama Ghost to begin with (seriously skeptical of where the thrill in this thriller will come from), but with the addition of Lee Yeon-hee (Paradise Ranch) as the heroine, I’m pretty much going to be out for the count. I swear, I’ll try to... More »

Shut Up: Flower Boy Band: Episode 16 (Final)
by | March 20, 2012 | 250 Comments
Yesterday I didn’t believe they could do it—wrap it up with just one episode. But this finale leaves my heart full to the brim. It’s a show I could watch for a hundred episodes, but in the end I’d trade those episodes for a well-written finale that leaves me satisfied, so while I’ll always want... More »

Hong Soo-hyun to play Ryu Shi-won’s tv wife?
by | March 16, 2012 | 42 Comments
Ryu Shi-won is returning to dramaland? Man, I’m pretty sure this guy was in ALL the dramas I watched in the 90s. He was kind of the originator of the babyface leading man, because before him, leading men were always the super gruff, chiseled types, but Ryu Shi-won was just the boy next door. He’s... More »

Shut Up: Flower Boy Band: Episode 14
by | March 13, 2012 | 158 Comments
Brace for impact. It’s an awesome episode, but you’ll need your airbags and your first-aid kit handy. And perhaps a defibrillator charged up, on standby. Just when you think you’ve seen rock bottom, you find there’s a basement hiding underneath those floorboards. These boys really know how to put a heart through the wringer. Why... More »

Fashion King releases character promo shots
by | March 8, 2012 | 73 Comments
Well, it’s definitely going for sleek, that’s for sure. Upcoming drama Fashion King may be a story about underdogs, but you wouldn’t know from the promos. Based on these shots, I’d guess it was a Gossip Girl-esque soapfest about privileged, angsty teens and their saucy problems. The first one reads: “Running towards tomorrow and the... More »
