Whatever it is, it rocks my world, and I’d like to order another helping, please. Tags: featured, Flower Boy Ramyun Shop,... More »

Song Joong-ki for GQ
by | November 22, 2011 | 88 Comments
Here’s Song Joong-ki in a decidedly strange spread for GQ. Normally I’m a fan of quirky, but this one’s just plain weird. For one, they’ve got the torso and legs of a woman standing there like a headless prop, which drives me batty. (Objectify much? Seriously, Mr. Scarecrow got better treatment than her.)

Thousand Day Promise: Episode 11
by | November 21, 2011 | 41 Comments
FINALLY. A huge gust of fresh air brings change to everyone’s world. It’s an episode heavy on the happy and light on the angst, and full of wit about abs and dramaland. It’s unexpectedly sexy, heartwarming, and FUN, which I get that this drama can’t be all the time, but damn, this episode makes me... More »

Flower Boy Ramyun Shop: Episode 6
by | November 15, 2011 | 213 Comments
This drama is candy-coated crack laced with Tabasco. How can a drama be so many things? It’s cute, it’s hilarious, it’s witty, it’s addictive, and it’s HOT. What I love about this show is that it’s got oodles of heart, but it’s always better when that heart is couched in wit and sexual tension and... More »
