Kim Woo-bin offered fantasy movie opposite Ha Jung-woo
by | July 31, 2015 | 17 Comments
This would be a dream pairing of leading men if it happened, though I suppose that’s just a regular day for Ha Jung-woo (Chronicle of a Blood Merchant). Kim Woo-bin (Heirs) is entertaining an offer to star in a new fantasy movie, which is currently courting Ha Jung-woo. It’s an adaptation of a manhwa series... More »

Scholar Who Walks the Night: Episode 8
by | July 30, 2015 | 183 Comments
It’s not the most smoothly executed show, but I like that the story gains some momentum today, with a major development in our conspiracy-to-uncover-the-conspiracy plot that actually ties everyone together rather nicely. By which I mean torturously, with many lives on the line. Do you think if I started a drinking game for whenever Yang-sun... More »

Choi Ji-woo goes back to school for Twenty Again
by | July 27, 2015 | 52 Comments
Could Choi Ji-woo be any cuter? The first teaser for new tvN rom-com Twenty Again is just her adorable reaction to getting her student ID card on her first day back at school, but seriously, if she’s just going to be her bubbly self like this in the whole drama, I’m going to love it.... More »

Oh My Ghostess: Episode 8
by | July 25, 2015 | 326 Comments
I’m such a fool for this show right now. It’s just found that pitch-perfect groove of story, performances, and heart, and I’ve gone from finding it sweet and fun to falling for it completely. The key is really in the relationship between ghost and host, and today we see the potential for what began as... More »

Kang Dong-won in talks to headline fantasy movie
by | July 25, 2015 | 19 Comments
I do love Kang Don-won (Dugeun Dugeun My Life) best in fantasy/sci-fi films (okay, so I love him any which way he comes) — he just has that weird ethereal beauty that makes it so easy to believe he’s a magical creature with superhuman powers. He’s currently in talks to star in a new fantasy... More »

Song Seung-heon considers Saimdang opposite Lee Young-ae
by | July 24, 2015 | 65 Comments
So… the last time Song Seung-heon did sageuk, it was Dr. Jin… yeeeaaaaaah. On the upside, SBS’s large-scale biopic drama Saimdang, the Herstory is most definitely NOT going to be Dr. Jin. And on the double-upside, Lee Young-ae (Dae Jang Geum) is headlining in her 12-year drama comeback. The pairing honestly throws me a little,... More »

Scholar Who Walks the Night: Episode 6
by | July 23, 2015 | 171 Comments
I really love the array of Lee Yubi’s swoon faces in this drama. They’re so blatantly adoring, or in this case, mad at herself for swooning while swooning. It’s too cute. Everyone’s on a collision course today, and it’s vampire against vampire in a battle to get to our heroine first. The episode speeds by... More »
