Oh My Ghostess: Episode 4
by | July 11, 2015 | 208 Comments
How can any creature, ghost or human, be so cute? The shenanigans really take off in this episode between our leads, to pretty uproarious effect. If you think you’ve seen the extent of our lusty ghostess’s bawdy ways, you’d be mistaken—when she sets her sights on something (or someone) she wants, she’s like a dog... More »

Lee Sang-yoon courted for tvN rom-com Twenty Again
by | July 10, 2015 | 43 Comments
Oh, cute. I like the idea of a Choi Ji-woo–Lee Sang-yoon drama pairing. I mean, it’ll always be second in my heart to a Choi Ji-woo-Lee Seo-jin pairing, but they can make it up to us by dating in real life, right? Now that the new tvN romantic comedy Twenty Again has locked down Choi... More »

Scholar Who Walks the Night: Episode 2
by | July 9, 2015 | 253 Comments
I like! Scholar Who Walks the Night is a fun mix of fantasy and romance that’s well executed and sticks to the basics — a strong central character who’s more than human but struggles to be more human than anyone. I’m also happy to say that I like our heroine, who has the harder job... More »

by | July 7, 2015 | 27 Comments
Oh this is gonna be a riot. I already love Yoo Hee-yeol (Yoo Hee-yeol’s Sketchbook, Youths Over Flowers) in variety, but he’s especially funny with Yoo Jae-suk (Running Man, Infinity Challenge), and now the two of them are teaming up for Yoo Jae-suk’s first cable variety show over at JTBC. Tags: cable programs, Yoo Hee-yeol,... More »

From twins to love interests? Well, they DID have an uncomfortable amount of chemistry for a pair of siblings in Kill Me, Heal Me… so maybe this new drama will rectify that? Offers are out to Hwang Jung-eum and Park Seo-joon to return to MBC and headline their next Wednesday-Thursday drama, called She Was Pretty.... More »

Jung Jae-young goes from welder to politician in KBS’s Assembly
by | July 6, 2015 | 30 Comments
We haven’t been posting each new round of stills and teasers for Assembly because visually there’s just a whole lot of suit-wearing and office-sitting going on, but it’s nice to see Jung Jae-young’s transformation from blue-collar worker to idealistic politician — his underdog success story as a rookie member of the Korean National Assembly is...

Oh My Ghostess: Episode 2
by | July 4, 2015 | 142 Comments
The second episode really brings the comedy into play, now that our wallflower heroine has been taken over by a ghostly presence with an unquenchable thirst for all things male. It’s hard to even call it innuendo when she’s just openly drooling, leering, and grabbing to her heart’s content. I guess when you’ve already died... More »

by | July 2, 2015 | 119 Comments
After wading through the arduous portion of denial with a side of noble idiocy, we finally get to the good stuff: fluttery anticipation of first dates, how to seduce your boyfriend without seeming too eager (Answer: There’s no such thing as too eager! Too eager’s for people in Episode 8! Get on with it!), and... More »
