by | October 7, 2015 | 17 Comments
Interesting. The Tooth and the Nail is the movie that was once courting Han Seok-kyu to headline, but stalled somewhere along the way in development. It’s back now with a brand new cast, led by Go Soo (Tailors), who plays a man in search of a killer after the death of his fiancée. Tags: Go... More »

Crime movie One Line: Lee Jong-seok out, Im Shi-wan in?
by | October 7, 2015 | 29 Comments
I guess this means that Lee Jong-seok passed on the new crime movie One Line, because now Im Shi-wan (Misaeng) is fielding offers to headline the project. Well I can certainly see what image they’re going for in casting the lead. Im is coming off of shoots from his period film Thoughts of Oppa, which... More »

Oh Snap! Yoo Seung-ho casts his spell
by | October 6, 2015 | 40 Comments
It’s finally (almost) here! Yoo Seung-ho’s army comeback project Joseon Magician is gearing up for a winter release and has released its first posters. It’s just a glimpse, but I’d say it was worth the wait to see Yoo Seung-ho back in all his ethereal fusion sageuk glory. I thought it’d be hard to top... More »

Back at sea for Three Meals a Day: Fishing Village
by | October 6, 2015 | 29 Comments
You know, Three Meals a Day has only been off the air for a few weeks (while Na PD was busy running around China with the 1N2D boys), but I’ve missed it a little. I guess I’ve just gotten used to the low-key everyday farm hijinks. I’m even more excited that this next season is... More »

New Journey to the West: Episodes 20-23 (Final)
by | October 5, 2015 | 33 Comments
javabeans: New Journey to the West ended this week, and, as we’ve come to expect of Na PD shows, was a hit from start to finish. Really, as soon as it was over I read a bunch of articles that used phrases like “Na PD’s magic” and “This is why we need Na PD” and... More »

Growing up in the neighborhood in 1988
by | October 5, 2015 | 47 Comments
I’m actually too sad that Twenty Again has to end to get excited about tvN’s next Friday-Saturday drama Answer Me 1988 yet, but I’m sure it’s going to be another heartwarming family series that makes us all wistful for the good ol’ days. The Answer Me franchise has built its identity around feel-good nostalgia for... More »

Twenty Again: Episode 12
by | October 3, 2015 | 423 Comments
I didn’t think this hero could get any swoonier, but he just keeps raising the bar. I’m convinced this is a fantasy drama now, because people like this just don’t exist in real life. It’s a rough day for our heroine as revelations come hurtling at her from just about every single person around her,... More »

Twenty Again: Episode 11
by | October 2, 2015 | 136 Comments
You know, I’ve never been so happy with a show that has such slow plot advancement. But it’s because Twenty Again delivers so much emotional gain and character growth that it makes me want to dwell even longer in every beat on our heroine’s journey, not missing a single look or feeling under the surface....

Union workers band together in JTBC’s webtoon adaptation Awl
by | September 30, 2015 | 25 Comments
This drama totally flew under my radar, but I’m interested to see if it can really become the next Misaeng like it’s clearly angling to be. Cable network JTBC’s adaptation of the webtoon Awl, about union workers fighting back against The Man, is gearing up to premiere in October; it’ll be added on as a... More »
