Oh My Ghostess: Episode 16 (Final)
by | August 22, 2015 | 232 Comments
There’s something nice about a finale that’s all about saying goodbye, since it gives us the chance to send our characters off with proper farewells, where they get to express what they mean to each other and how they’ve grown. Oh My Ghostess certainly had its share of missteps along the way, but the finale... More »

Lee Je-hoon teams up with Misaeng PD for tvN’s Signal
by | August 20, 2015 | 59 Comments
I’m so glad that Lee Je-hoon hasn’t run away from dramaland to only do movies — it’s so my fear with good actors like him. His army comeback drama Secret Door might’ve been a disappointment, but maybe he’ll finally meet the right project in Signal, tvN’s upcoming crime thriller from PD Kim Won-seok (Misaeng) and...

L scores first headlining role on the big screen
by | August 18, 2015 | 54 Comments
I just wish it were a more interesting-sounding movie. Infinite’s L (Kim Myung-soo) is headed to the big screen for the first time, in a starring role in the new movie Mister Shark, about a boy who befriends a shark. Yeah, I know. It makes no sense to me either. Why couldn’t they have gone... More »

It’s a rough day to be Sun-woo, because there’s hardly a moment for him to process his complicated feelings before a new bomb gets dropped in his lap, which could very well implode his whole family. It only took fourteen episodes, but we finally have our three leads sleuthing their way towards the truth together,... More »

Scholar Who Walks the Night: Episode 12
by | August 13, 2015 | 213 Comments
Stupid, stupid humans. Why listen to the vampire who’s spent the last century searching for the right way to kill your common enemy? Why bother following the instructions in the super-secret diary that multiple generations of men have died to find? It’s so much more fun to hatch a half-baked plan and risk everyone’s lives...
