Hyde, Jekyll, Me: Episode 14
by | March 5, 2015 | 64 Comments
Oh I like this episode. There’s payoff in the central conflict, and more time spent with our three main characters and the developing romance. Er, romances. The jury’s still out on whether Hana is dating two guys or one, but the closer she gets to both of them, the more complicated it all becomes. If... More »

The loser gets a second shot at love in Superdaddy Yeol
by | March 5, 2015 | 28 Comments
The teasers for this show are really funny, but tvN also has a habit of reeling me in with awesome teasers that don’t always match the show. I think in Superdaddy Yeol’s case, the tone should hold up, as we watch Lee Dong-gun (Mi-rae’s Choice) go from a slacker bachelor to responsible superdaddy material in... More »

Falling for Innocence’s lighthearted teasers and posters
by | March 4, 2015 | 51 Comments
I’m thinking this melodrama isn’t going to be all that melodramatic. The promo materials for JTBC’s new Friday-Saturday drama Falling for Innocence seem closer to rom-com than I had anticipated, which is just fine by me. The new series stars Jung Kyung-ho (Endless Love) as a man who gets a new heart and a personality... More »

Song Ji-hyo courted to join Byun Yo-han’s Ex-Girlfriend Club
by | March 4, 2015 | 67 Comments
Hm, the last time Song Ji-hyo played someone’s ex, it wasn’t as much fun as I had hoped — Emergency Couple did have its outlandish moments, but it wasn’t exactly what I’d call a healthy relationship that needed a second go. Perhaps she’ll have better luck with Byun Yo-han (Misaeng) in tvN’s new Friday-Saturday romantic... More »

by | February 28, 2015 | 120 Comments
OH. I like this. I like it a lot. KBS’s new drama Producer isn’t settling for one male lead, because why have one when you can have two?
