Cinderella is determined to turn her knights into a happy family
by | July 25, 2016 | 62 Comments
I have no idea why a chaebol chairman would hire a girl to move into his mansion and turn his prickly grandsons into a familial unit, but this is the basis of tvN’s new youth romantic comedy Cinderella and the Four Knights. I guess rich people do all sorts of crazy inexplicable things, so we’ll... More »

There’s a new drama in the works from writer Choi Su-jin of City Hunter and PD Jo Young-kwang of 49 Days, Yawang, and Hyde, Jekyll, Me, and it’s headed to SBS this fall. Writer Choi was one of two scriptwriters on City Hunter, so I don’t want to get my hopes up too high, but... More »

W–Two Worlds: Episode 2
by | July 21, 2016 | 371 Comments
I already love this show. I loved it yesterday, but I was fully prepared for a slowdown in the second episode, in case all the cool parts were blown on the awesome start out of the gate. But not only does our heroine get cuter, our hero gets smarter, and the conflict becomes riskier, twistier,... More »

MBC’s new supernatural suspense drama W–Two Worlds premiered today, and despite my expectations for it being really high (I couldn’t help it, okay? The comic book fan in me was just geekily excited!), I wasn’t disappointed with the first episode. It’s a heightened world, full of reality-bending twists and shot with flair, and I’m already...

by | July 19, 2016 | 57 Comments
It’s no music video, but the first poster for youth sageuk Moonlight Drawn By Clouds is a pretty one, highlighting a sweet summer romance between a prince and his eunuch.

by | July 18, 2016 | 252 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 »
