Lucky Romance: Episode 4
by | June 2, 2016 | 123 Comments
Things do pick up now that the setup is complete and the romance can actually get going, albeit in the form of a cold hard business arrangement. I suppose stranger things have led to romance in dramaland, and if there’s one trope I always enjoy, it’s the contract relationship that forces people into coupley situations... More »

Han Ji-min (Hyde, Jekyll, Me) is currently considering an offer to star in the new fantasy drama from PD Yoo Je-won, of the hilariously zany tvN comedies High School King of Savvy and Oh My Ghostess.

Young and in love and Uncontrollably Fond of each other
by | June 1, 2016 | 129 Comments
I like the sweet springtime feel of the new poster for KBS’s Uncontrollably Fond, which goes hand in hand with the latest teaser, featuring the college campus love story between leads Kim Woo-bin (Heirs) and Suzy (Gu Family Book). It’s the idyllic romance before a painful separation and years on separate paths turn them into... More »

by | June 1, 2016 | 23 Comments
Okay, this actually isn’t a huge role, but the casting makes me excited because Yoon Ji-hye (Jackpot) and Jo Jin-woong (Signal) shared a cute side loveline in the movie Kundo: Age of the Rampant, and now they’re going to reunite as a married couple in tvN’s remake of Entourage. Jo Jin-woong plays a high-powered agent... More »

Youths Over Flowers bros Jung Woo, Kang Haneul consider movie reunion
by | May 30, 2016 | 32 Comments
I’m always a sucker for real-life bromance carrying over into fiction. Some of the cutest Youths Over Flowers in Iceland bromance moments came from Jung Woo (Himalayas) and Kang Haneul (Like for Likes), who had become friends after co-starring in the folk band movie C’est Si Bon together. They just had a really cute doting... More »

Park Shin-hye, Kim Rae-won smile for the cameras on set of Doctors
by | May 29, 2016 | 79 Comments
Aw, they kind of look cute together. I mean, he looks very much like her older wiser sunbae, but that’s the dynamic in the drama, right? Maybe it’s just that Kim Rae-won (Punch) is permanently seared into my brain as the perfect oppa-next-door type, so I’ll always see him as that. Here’s a peek at... More »

by | May 29, 2016 | 46 Comments

It seems stingy, given the enormous cast of pretty boy princes they’ve got, but I guess that’s how you make the drama promo last. Here’s another peek at two more princes from SBS’s upcoming time-travel fantasy sageuk Scarlet Heart: Goryeo, starring... More »
