by | March 31, 2013 | 94 Comments
Here’s the first poster for fusion fantasy drama Gu Family Book, with not one but two Seung-gis. Don’t you try to trick me with double the puppies, to hide the fact that you only made one poster. I’m onto you. *hairy eyeball* At least it’s got a concept, with the half-human half-gumiho hero Choi Kang-chi... More »

by | March 30, 2013 | 50 Comments
Looks like Go Hyun-jung’s new school-set drama The Queen’s Classroom isn’t messing around when it comes to child actors — they’ve cast not one but two big names (south of fifteen, that is) to be her co-stars. Kim Sae-ron (Neighbor) and Seo Shin-ae (Incarnation of Money) will star as students to Go Hyun-jung’s icy, hard-nosed... More »

Posters for All About My Romance
by | March 29, 2013 | 63 Comments
Upcoming political rom-com All About My Romance has finally released its posters, and uh… the result is a little underwhelming. I’m pretty sure I’ve seen fanart pop up two hours after a drama casting announcement (*cough Lee Min-ho cough*) that look better than these, but I think the white ones are likely pre-photoshop, which then...

Illustration by Ally *peeks through hands* Is it over? Did I make it? Are we finally at the end of this One Road and all the puns we can possibly milk out of that name? You know, I misjudged this show. Even when it was on its continuous downward trajectory of plotlessness, I thought, But... More »

by | March 27, 2013 | 79 Comments
So. Cute. My curiosity was already piqued when they called KBS’s upcoming sageuk thriller Mandate of Heaven a Joseon-era Ajusshi, but the stills of lead actor Lee Dong-wook on set with his tv daughter (played by rookie child actress Kim Yu-bin) are enough to make anyone’s heart go gooey. Who needs tough guy ajusshi when... More »

You’re the Best, Lee Soon-shin: Episode 6
by | March 26, 2013 | 80 Comments
You know, I expected to get tired of the initial misunderstanding—the heroine mistaking the hero for a con artist—but it’s actually so amusing that I wouldn’t mind it if we let them continue like this for a while. The more self-satisfied and smug he is, the longer I want her to snub him, even if... More »

There are so many dramas set to premiere this spring (Seriously. So. Many.) that it’s been as hard to keep up with the output of stills as it is to keep all the shows straight in my head. So here’s a collection as random as they come, because when it rains it pours, and every... More »

Idol-turned-actress Lee Jin (The Great Seer) has just joined the cast of her ex-groupmate Sung Yuri’s new weekend drama... More »
