by | March 23, 2012 | 32 Comments
EPISODE 378. Broadcast on March 18, 2012. javabeans: For some unspeakable reason, the opening today involves a dance as Su-geun does his best impression of a manic host and introduces the guys. Jong-min’s dancing with such concentration that the caption points out that he misses out on being funny… but fear not, since Equator Man... More »

The King 2 Hearts: Episode 2
by | March 22, 2012 | 187 Comments
Damn, I tried not to love this drama, but it just won’t let me. It’s friggin’ hilarious, and now it’s hooked me, good and proper. The last episode focused much more on our hero and the royal family, but this time we really get to know our heroine, and she’s pretty awesome. Plus, we get... More »

Eom Ki-joon joins cyber thriller Ghost
by | March 22, 2012 | 40 Comments
Just when I thought Ghost was out of the pageant, it reels me back in with Eom Ki-joon. Drat! I love Eom Ki-joon! I don’t know if I love him enough to endure the So Ji-sub / Lee Yeon-hee competition for saddest puppy, but it’s certainly an uptick on my expectation meter for this drama,... More »

The King 2 Hearts: Episode 1
by | March 21, 2012 | 167 Comments
Okay, this show cracks me up. I just didn’t know what to expect going in, thinking it’d be Daemul-meets-IRIS, judging from the uninspired promos. They made me yawn, those suckers. But I’m happy to report that The King 2 Hearts is a dark comedy, and pretty damn pitch-perfect at that. On the upside, it’s not... More »

Geez, it’s like a friggin’ Lie to Me convention up in here. At first I thought, oh how funny, singer-actress Park Ji-yoon will be having a reunion of sorts with Lie to Me co-star Hong Soo-hyun in Channel A’s Goodbye Wifey. And then Danny Ahn joined the cast as well, and though he only cameoed... More »

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 »

Will Suzy go Big or go home?
by | March 19, 2012 | 125 Comments
Suzy? With Gong Yoo? Um… isn’t that stretching the boundaries of cradle robbery? Oh wait… I guess that’s the point… but damn. So the next Hong sisters drama is the upcoming KBS rom-com Big, about an 18-year old hero trapped in the body of a 30-something man. Yunno, all Tom-Hanksy with the piano feet. (If... More »
