Coffee Prince PD returns with short drama adaptation of 4teen
by | November 9, 2013 | 20 Comments
Ooh, it’s been a while since PD Lee Yoon-jung has come back with a new project. She did work on 2012’s Golden Time (she’s staffed at MBC), but it’s been a long time since we’ve seen the likes of her solo projects Triple and Coffee Prince that bear her trademark thoughtful, breezy style. She’s preparing... More »

Heirs: Episode 10
by | November 7, 2013 | 558 Comments
It’s a less traumatic episode than the last few, which I guess isn’t saying a whole lot in the grand scheme of things. The frenemy war rages on, and the two suitors literally declare that they will be fighting over Eun-sang because they have nothing else to fight over. Gee, and they say romance is... More »

Lee Jung-jae and Shin Ha-kyun face off in action thriller
by | November 7, 2013 | 33 Comments
Well I’d call this a good team-up. Though I suppose bitter rivalry to the death is a better way to put it, since Lee Jung-jae (The Face Reader) and Shin Ha-kyun (All About My Romance) aren’t exactly signing on to a buddy cop movie. There have been a few rumblings about the two leading men... More »

Choi Min cast as Jeon Ji-hyun’s fiancé in You From Another Star
by | November 6, 2013 | 42 Comments
SBS’s upcoming Wednesday-Thursday drama You From Another Star starring Jeon Ji-hyun and Kim Soo-hyun has already started rehearsals, but it’s only now that we’re getting a verdict on the second lead casting. I guess the news is more that idol-actor Yunho (Yawang), who was originally rumored to be the second lead, has officially turned down... More »

Joo-won and Kim Ah-joong’s new rom-com Catch Me
by | November 4, 2013 | 109 Comments
Sometimes I wonder if Joo-won cloned himself, because he’s in so many things that I often don’t know when he could’ve possibly filmed half of his projects. I had nearly forgotten about this one, a cops-and-robbers romantic comedy movie called Catch Me (previously called Only You), co-starring Kim Ah-joong (My P.S. Partner). The production released...

Man From Another Star changes title (again), begins script rehearsals
by | November 4, 2013 | 82 Comments
I’m pretty sure I couldn’t tell you the difference between Man From Another Star, Lover From Another Star, or You From Another Star, but that’s the title they’re sticking to, they swears it this time. SBS’s upcoming Wednesday-Thursday drama, whatever its name is, has released its first stills of the star-studded cast gathered for the... More »

Yoochun headlines action drama Three Days
by | November 3, 2013 | 124 Comments
Whoooo, it’s two good bits of news all rolled into one. I had wondered what happened to the 24-esque condensed-time action thriller drama Three Days, which had sounded like the best new drama in the upcoming crop, but missed its window on SBS’s fall schedule as originally planned. Never fear, because it’s back on the... More »

Trailer and stills for Kim Sun-ah’s action thriller The Five
by | November 2, 2013 | 34 Comments
Okay, this trailer totally creeps me out, but in a good way. I’m happy that Kim Sun-ah’s new revenge thriller The Five looks as dark and chilling as it was described early on, and though I’m not surprised that she threw herself into the role with gusto, there are definitely no traces of the rom-com...

Answer Me 1994: Episode 5
by | November 2, 2013 | 122 Comments
This is a cute episode that does a rare thing (in the Answer Me series) by sticking to one timeline. It even confines the story to twenty-four hours, where we encounter everything from the mundane to the surprising, in a day filled with idol encounters, communal showers, a mystery digestive ailment, and that thing about...

How would you rate this episode?

5 Badass. Omg. Squee.

4 If you squint really hard, those plot holes look smaller.

3 A for effort, C for execution.

2 Is it too late to hire a script doctor? I volunteer as tribute.
