Oh Snap! IU and her seven flower boy princes
by | July 18, 2016 | 247 Comments
It’s rare that I look at a drama cast and think, there’s just too much pretty in there. Is such a thing even possible? But come on, if it takes you five seconds to locate Lee Jun-ki in a group photo, that’s saying something (I’m kidding, it would never take me that long!). The cast... More »

Kyung Su-jin up for sports campus drama Weightlifting Fairy
by | July 18, 2016 | 31 Comments
Ah, how I wish she were the lead. I really adore up-and-coming actress Kyung Su-jin (Bluebird’s House, Plus Nine Boys), who has a natural charm about her and a warmth that comes across onscreen. She’s been steadily working her way up with supporting roles (Secret Love Affair, Shark) and is currently considering an offer to... More »

The prince shakes his stuff for Moonlight Drawn By Clouds teaser
by | July 15, 2016 | 145 Comments
When I saw pictures of Park Bo-gum doing a dance routine in his royal robes on the set of Moonlight Drawn By Clouds, I thought it was going to be random behind-the-scenes promotional material for funsies, not the first teaser of the drama! A dance routine to “Bomba” is definitely the strangest teaser for a... More »

Uncontrollably Fond: Episode 4
by | July 14, 2016 | 194 Comments
With the backstory firmly established, we get to spend more time in the present and move beyond initial misunderstandings and crossed wires, and I’m enjoying the way our characters interact now that the initial icy layer has been breached. Not that we’re anywhere near the warm gooey center, mind you (I don’t know why this... More »

Comic book collections and dreamlike kisses in W–Two Worlds
by | July 13, 2016 | 93 Comments
It’s pretty cool to see the props for MBC’s new fantasy suspense drama W–Two Worlds, because they’ve had to create actual comic books that feature Lee Jong-seok as the hero, and then they’ve filled Han Hyo-joo’s room with them because she’s the fangirl who collects them all. (A comic book geek as drama heroine. I... More »

by | July 11, 2016 | 120 Comments
Oh, I wonder what happened behind the scenes on this drama. Lee Hana was the actress originally cast to play Song Jae-rim’s girlfriend in SBS’s new weekend drama Our Gap-soon, which would’ve been a reunion for the Unkind Women co-stars. Lee Hana even attended the cast script read after signing on for the role, but... More »

Uncontrollably Fond: Episode 2
by | July 7, 2016 | 166 Comments
The high school versions of these characters are much more endearing than their adult counterparts, but I guess that’s the point—to really highlight how much they’ve changed, and to make us wonder what on earth happened to them in the intervening years to make our present-day characters so prickly. Love? Loss? Lobotomies? Or just good... More »

by | July 7, 2016 | 42 Comments
Well if this comes to pass, it’s going to be a PD-writer-star lineup to anticipate: JTBC’s new drama Man to Man has already secured leading man Park Hae-jin (Cheese in the Trap) and writer Kim Won-seok (co-writer on KBS’s Descended From the Sun), and now the production is courting PD Song Hyun-wook, of tvN’s recent...
