by | May 23, 2016 | 115 Comments
Cast and crew gathered at the first table read for MBC’s new summer romance suspense drama W–Two Worlds, the drama formerly known as W.

by | May 20, 2016 | 53 Comments
Well, this is interesting. KBS is currently in talks with the cast and crew of its successful Monday-Tuesday series Neighborhood Lawyer Jo Deul-ho to extend the show by 4 episodes, bringing the total count to 24 (and give its follow-up drama Beautiful Mind another two weeks to get its act together, no doubt).

Goodbye Mr. Black: Episode 20 (Final)
by | May 19, 2016 | 74 Comments
Goodbye, Goodbye Mr. Black. I can’t say I’ll miss you, or that I’ll think of you, that is, unless you do something wildly horrific to our main characters and make me come back with a new name to hunt you down and get my revenge. But you won’t do that, right? We’ve come too far... More »

Lee Yo-won returns to the big screen with warm family movie
by | May 16, 2016 | 24 Comments
Lee Yo-won, Esom No matter what Lee Yo-won takes on next, it’ll be hard to top her hotheaded character in Ms. Temper and Nam Jung-ki, which people are calling her rediscovery role (though honestly, she was plenty discovered before, as a regular leading actress in dramaland). I do think she turned a corner with edgier... More »
