Fantasy drama Goblin courts Yook Sung-jae to play a rebel
by | August 26, 2016 | 30 Comments
Oh I hope this casting sticks, because Yook Sung-jae (Village: Secret of Achiara) has been getting a lot of drama offers lately — Moonlight Drawn By Clouds, Shopping King Louie — that he ultimately turned down due to scheduling conflicts, but I’d like to see him in a drama before the year is out. He’s... More »

W–Two Worlds: Episode 11
by | August 25, 2016 | 606 Comments
The earlier episodes twisted my brain, but this week’s episodes really twist my heart. The romance went from sweet to genuinely moving in the latest story arc, and I’m even starting to think that Fate may not be so cruel after all. Though that’s always what she wants you to think just before pulling the... More »

by | August 25, 2016 | 64 Comments
There were some rumors floating around last week that this second lead role in Goblin might go to various idol stars, but I’m glad that the offer went to Yoo Inna (One More Happy Ending) in the end. She just has a warmth to her that I like, and whether she’s playing leads or supporting... More »

I don’t think this episode will blow anyone’s brain to smithereens, but I guess that’s a good thing? If you happen to enjoy the heroine’s adorable antics as she navigates her way through the manhwa world, though, it’ll be a fun hour. And by fun I mean filled with crimes and misdemeanors, because apparently our... More »

Fire meets water in Moon Lovers: Scarlet Heart: Goryeo

And here I was, thinking that they couldn’t possibly make any more posters or teasers or stills for this drama. But the well of Lee Jun-ki’s beauty runneth deep, and there is no end in sight to the promo for this show. Lee Jun-ki with bloody sword? Check. Lee Jun-ki with music video fog? Check.... More »

My Sassy Girl’s original leading actress rumored to quit, role still not cast
by | August 22, 2016 | 109 Comments
Wow, this show is a mess behind the scenes. At this point I’m just rubbernecking, but sometimes you can’t look away when there’s a five-car pileup happening right in front of you, you know? The upcoming SBS youth sageuk adaptation of My Sassy Girl is STILL without a titular sassy girl… even though there’s going... More »

Yoon Doo-joon to make Let’s Eat and Bring It On, Ghost worlds collide
by | August 22, 2016 | 57 Comments
Yes, finally! The PD of tvN’s current Monday-Tuesday drama Bring In On, Ghost has been bringing practically all of the major cast members of his previous drama franchise — Let’s Eat Seasons 1 and 2 — to the set for fun cameos, and I’d been wondering if Yoon Doo-joon (Splish Splash Love) would ever make...

The forecast looks sunny for Jealousy Incarnate
by | August 19, 2016 | 43 Comments
It looks like we’re in for a cute, sunny romance in SBS’s new Wednesday-Thursday rom-com Jealousy Incarnate, unless you’re Jo Jung-seok (Oh My Ghostess), that is, in which case you’re in for a little karmic retribution in the form of petty jealousy. Gong Hyo-jin (The Producers) stars as a weather forecaster who has gotten over... More »

Maybe up is down, and down is up. And I could’ve sworn that yesterday happened already, but now I’m not so sure. I didn’t used to think those rules of the universe were arbitrary, but who’s to say anymore? I guess if this were any other drama, I might say there were new twists in... More »

I… was going to write words, and they were going to make sense, and they were going to be about W. Perhaps they would’ve been words about the love story, or about the fantasy-within-a-fantasy wish-fulfillment of this heightened world, or about my feelings, because I have a lot of them while watching this show. But... More »
