Cinderella is determined to turn her knights into a happy family
by | July 25, 2016 | 62 Comments
I have no idea why a chaebol chairman would hire a girl to move into his mansion and turn his prickly grandsons into a familial unit, but this is the basis of tvN’s new youth romantic comedy Cinderella and the Four Knights. I guess rich people do all sorts of crazy inexplicable things, so we’ll... More »

There’s a new drama in the works from writer Choi Su-jin of City Hunter and PD Jo Young-kwang of 49 Days, Yawang, and Hyde, Jekyll, Me, and it’s headed to SBS this fall. Writer Choi was one of two scriptwriters on City Hunter, so I don’t want to get my hopes up too high, but... More »

W–Two Worlds: Episode 2
by | July 21, 2016 | 371 Comments
I already love this show. I loved it yesterday, but I was fully prepared for a slowdown in the second episode, in case all the cool parts were blown on the awesome start out of the gate. But not only does our heroine get cuter, our hero gets smarter, and the conflict becomes riskier, twistier,... More »

W–Two Worlds: Episode 1
by | July 20, 2016 | 246 Comments
MBC’s new supernatural suspense drama W–Two Worlds premiered today, and despite my expectations for it being really high (I couldn’t help it, okay? The comic book fan in me was just geekily excited!), I wasn’t disappointed with the first episode. It’s a heightened world, full of reality-bending twists and shot with flair, and I’m already...

Romance by sunlight in Moonlight Drawn By Clouds
by | July 19, 2016 | 59 Comments
It’s no music video, but the first poster for youth sageuk Moonlight Drawn By Clouds is a pretty one, highlighting a sweet summer romance between a prince and his eunuch. Of course, that eunuch is a girl crossdressing as a boy, but honestly she’s fooling no one. For the drama’s sake though, I really hope... More »

Oh Snap! IU and her seven flower boy princes
by | July 18, 2016 | 252 Comments
It’s rare that I look at a drama cast and think, there’s just too much pretty in there. Is such a thing even possible? But come on, if it takes you five seconds to locate Lee Jun-ki in a group photo, that’s saying something (I’m kidding, it would never take me that long!). The cast... More »

Kyung Su-jin up for sports campus drama Weightlifting Fairy
by | July 18, 2016 | 31 Comments
Ah, how I wish she were the lead. I really adore up-and-coming actress Kyung Su-jin (Bluebird’s House, Plus Nine Boys), who has a natural charm about her and a warmth that comes across onscreen. She’s been steadily working her way up with supporting roles (Secret Love Affair, Shark) and is currently considering an offer to... More »

The prince shakes his stuff for Moonlight Drawn By Clouds teaser
by | July 15, 2016 | 147 Comments
When I saw pictures of Park Bo-gum doing a dance routine in his royal robes on the set of Moonlight Drawn By Clouds, I thought it was going to be random behind-the-scenes promotional material for funsies, not the first teaser of the drama! A dance routine to “Bomba” is definitely the strangest teaser for a... More »

Uncontrollably Fond: Episode 4
by | July 14, 2016 | 195 Comments
With the backstory firmly established, we get to spend more time in the present and move beyond initial misunderstandings and crossed wires, and I’m enjoying the way our characters interact now that the initial icy layer has been breached. Not that we’re anywhere near the warm gooey center, mind you (I don’t know why this... More »

Comic book collections and dreamlike kisses in W–Two Worlds
by | July 13, 2016 | 95 Comments
It’s pretty cool to see the props for MBC’s new fantasy suspense drama W–Two Worlds, because they’ve had to create actual comic books that feature Lee Jong-seok as the hero, and then they’ve filled Han Hyo-joo’s room with them because she’s the fangirl who collects them all. (A comic book geek as drama heroine. I... More »
