Could there be a cuter ghost in all of dramaland? I don’t know if Shin Mina’s spectre can top her gumiho, but I sort of love that she’s got the market cornered on spunky supernatural creatures who are misunderstood. The myths and legends got it wrong, don’tcha know? I can’t wait for this show to... More »

EPISODE 392. Broadcast on June 24, 2012. javabeans: New episode, new trip! I’m not sure anything can live up to the epicness of Tae-woong’s wet-T-shirt pelvis dance in a busy intersection, though… girlfriday: Ah, fond memories. It’s the public humiliation that seals our bonds. javabeans: Isn’t that always the way? girlfriday: They start the opening... More »

Gaksital: Episode 10
by | June 28, 2012 | 95 Comments
Woot, an episode packed with payoffs and some nice momentum for the romance, which finally starts to gain some traction when Kang-to gets reassigned as Mok Dan’s watchdog. I think it’s time she yanks on that invisible leash and gives Kang-to a little payback. I don’t think I’ll ever get sick of her hating him... More »

Rooftop Prince’s Jung Yumi has been cast as the lead in the manhwa adaption of City Conquest, starring Kim Hyun-joong as a city-conquering noir hero on a revenge mission.

Big: Episode 8
by | June 26, 2012 | 261 Comments
There are twists and turns and major decisions, some of which I wish we didn’t decide so hastily. We also start to unravel Kyung-joon’s backstory and the mystery of Yoon-jae and Kyung-joon’s connection. The way that’s being teased (one excrutiatingly teensy drop at a time), I certainly hope it amounts to something worth waiting for,... More »

Lee Yo-won (49 Days) will be returning in the new MBC medical sageuk The Horse Healer, starring Jo Seung-woo (Go Go 70s, Tazza) as the titular horse whisperer. I could have gone with Dr. Horse, but that sounded more Mr. Ed, and less historical epic drama. Tags: Jo Seung-woo, Lee Yo-won... More »
