I guess we’ll just have to live with the fact that this’ll be one of those dramas where the happy happens offscreen. MBC’s new Wednesday-Thursday drama Medical Top Team is gearing up for its broadcast next week... More »

So… there’s good news and there’s bad news. The highly anticipated (and equally troubled) new weekender Thrice Married Woman from hit writer Kim Soo-hyun fiiiiiinally has a heroine and a leading cast. I think. Well let’s just hope this one sticks. Lee Jia (Me Too, Flower) is officially signing on to star, after much back... More »

If You Like… Noona Romances
by | September 29, 2013 | 241 Comments
If you’re anything like me, your ideal drama hero isn’t the cold chaebol with the icy exterior or even the perfect Daddy Long Legs caretaker. He’s the hotheaded ruffian on a motorcycle with a busted lip and a one-sided love for an unattainable noona. Why always a motorcycle? I don’t know. Blame Jung Woo-sung (Beat,... More »

EPISODE 13. Broadcast on September 27, 2013. javabeans: The trip ended with last week’s episode, so this begins the 2-episode special, full of unbroadcast scenes and B-side footage.

I can’t tell if it it’s felt like two weeks, eight weeks, or eight years that we’ve been waiting for D-Day, but it’s finally here. Now all I need is for the hero to save the day, put all the baddies away, save his daughter, not die (ya hear), oh and get the girl. That’s... More »

It’s D-1, and you know what that means: things are going to get worse before they get better. Still, in the scheme of the last two weeks, you could call it a good day for our hero, who finally turns the tables on the baddies by fanning the flames of betrayal. Turns out when you’re... More »
