Bickering behind the scenes of Falling for Innocence
by | February 6, 2015 | 45 Comments
Augh, why is this show not a rom-com? Look how cute they’d be! Apparently JTBC’s new spring Friday-Saturday drama Falling for Innocence is going to ignore real-life bromance and adorableness in favor of melodrama. (But why? Can’t you see it goes against nature?) It doesn’t mean we can’t enjoy the backstage goofing-off before things get... More »

Lee Joon and Go Ah-sung’s first shoot for I Heard it Through the Grapevine
by | February 6, 2015 | 23 Comments
I hope SBS’s new Monday-Tuesday drama I Heard it Through the Grapevine doesn’t disappoint — it has a great cast, solid producers, and promises incisive social commentary rolled into a black comedy. The drama from the producers behind Secret Love Affair stars Lee Joon (Gap-dong) and Go Ah-sung (Snowpiercer) as a high school couple that... More »

Hyde, Jekyll, Me: Episode 6
by | February 5, 2015 | 152 Comments
Yay, I’m happy to report that yesterday’s episode wasn’t a fluke—it may have taken two weeks for Hyde, Jekyll, Me to find its rom-com center, but now that our hero has softened, the romantic development is actually coming along. It’s not that I didn’t have faith that Seo-jin would become likable, but there’s SUCH a... More »

Hyde, Jekyll, Me: Episode 5
by | February 4, 2015 | 68 Comments
If only every prickly romantic hero had an impish alter ego to force him out of his comfort zone. Now that he’s forced to shack up with the woman he tried to send away, Seo-jin can’t exactly cut himself off from the rest of the world anymore, though not for lack of trying. He reluctantly...

Song Joong-ki considers new drama Descended From the Sun
by | February 4, 2015 | 142 Comments
Oh man, I have such mixed feelings about this. On the one hand, YAY Song Joong-ki (Nice Guy, Wolf Boy) will be out of the army and is already looking at projects to return to dramaland! On the other hand, if he returns in a Kim Eun-sook drama (the hit writer of Heirs, Secret Garden),... More »

Kim Jung-eun headlines new drama as ajumma vigilante
by | February 3, 2015 | 32 Comments
I guess in hindsight, Kim Jung-eun (Oohlala Spouses) was smart to turn down the SBS weekend drama My Heart Twinkle Twinkle, legal disputes and all, because that show is regularly pulling in 2% ratings (pretty abysmal, when successful weekenders sometimes break 30-40%). It also frees her up to headline a new MBC drama called Make... More »

Kim Jae-won goes up against Cha Seung-won in MBC’s Hwajeong
by | January 30, 2015 | 31 Comments
This historical epic is assembling a pretty epic cast: MBC’s new sweeping sageuk Hwajeong (short for Splendid Politics) already has the likes of Cha Seung-won, Lee Sung-min, and Lee Yeon-hee onboard, and now Kim Jae-won (Scandal) is joining them to play Cha Seung-won’s rival. I know, who in his right mind would rival Cha Seung-won?... More »

Hyde, Jekyll, Me: Episode 4
by | January 29, 2015 | 154 Comments
This show is pretty ridiculous, but it’s also fun, especially when our hero’s alter ego starts actively messing with his life. Some would call it “fixing” his life, but good luck convincing an uptight control-freak that adding complications is a good thing. But even the bossypants with a stick up his butt has his moments—they... More »

by | January 29, 2015 | 63 Comments
It looks like everything’s in place for our uber-rich family to mix it up with the hoi polloi in the scandal of the season — at least that’s what we’re told will happen in SBS’s new Monday-Tuesday drama I Heard it Through the Grapevine, the new project from PD Ahn Pan-seok and writer Jung Sung-joo...

Hyde, Jekyll, Me: Episode 3
by | January 28, 2015 | 118 Comments
It’s our first full episode with our hero’s alter ego Robin, who turns out to be much more than just a guy that saves people. Maybe I’m the only one who’s surprised to find heart in a relationship between a man and his split-personality, but I find myself more invested now that we’ve met Robin.... More »
