by | June 14, 2013 | 24 Comments
Hm, I wouldn’t mind being lost at sea with these two. Bong Joon-ho (Snowpiercer, The Host) is producing a new movie called Sea Fog, and he’s scored the fabulous Kim Yoon-seok (Thieves, Wandeuki) to star. That man is just great in everything. Song Joong-ki (Nice Guy, A Werewolf Boy) is being tapped to join him,... More »

I Hear Your Voice: Episode 4
by | June 13, 2013 | 233 Comments
I feel like a yo-yo after every episode of this show because I’ve been so wildly yanked from one extreme to the other—laughing out loud and then clutching my heart, sometimes in terror and other times from the giddy romance. But even though I feel spent, I’m a happy little yo-yo; yes I am.  ... More »

Gu Family Book: Episode 20
by | June 11, 2013 | 187 Comments
Okay, I’m happier with this episode. There’s a nice balance of character development, epic face-offs, cute couple moments, and emotional payoffs for conflicts that we’ve been circling for a while. And no, I’m not just happier because there are nekkid hijinks. At least… not entirely.   EPISODE 20 RECAP As per her arrangement with Tae-seo,... More »

by | June 11, 2013 | 37 Comments
KBS is launching another season of single-episode Drama Specials starting this week, set to air on Wednesday nights after the primetime drama slot. I hope it’s a good programming move because I like drama specials and this way they’ll get more attention, but it also feels like they’re coming at a time when I can’t... More »

Gu Family Book: Episode 19
by | June 10, 2013 | 175 Comments
It’s an episode all about Kang-chi’s family—the people who took him in and raised him, the people who abandoned him, and the people who accepted him for who (or what) he is. There’s heartbreak and angst in that tale, but also a lot to be gained, because this story has never been about the family... More »

Here’s a collection of stills from the next installment of the epic ambition wars between the haves... More »

Eun Ji-won and Kang Ho-dong reunited? Baby Bear and Papa Bear, together again? I love a lot of variety bromances, but this is one of my all-time favorites. Word is that Eun Ji-won (Answer Me 1997) is being courted to join the cast of Kang Ho-dong’s SBS variety show Barefoot Friends, following the exit of... More »

Okay, now this is my worst nightmare. But deadly contagious viruses do make good movie fodder, don’t they? Here’s the first teaser for this summer’s epidemic disaster movie The Flu, starring Jang Hyuk (IRIS 2) and Su Ae (Queen of Ambition).

Our Boy Wonder finally finds the girl he’s been searching for all this time, but it remains... More »

Here’s a sneak peek at Na PD’s new variety show Grandpas Over Flowers, with stills from the cast’s first trip to Paris.
