L scores first headlining role on the big screen
by | August 18, 2015 | 55 Comments
I just wish it were a more interesting-sounding movie. Infinite’s L (Kim Myung-soo) is headed to the big screen for the first time, in a starring role in the new movie Mister Shark, about a boy who befriends a shark. Yeah, I know. It makes no sense to me either. Why couldn’t they have gone... More »

Joo Sang-wook, Choi Kang-hee for MBC’s Dazzling Temptation
by | August 16, 2015 | 56 Comments
Wait, there was a whole round of stories earlier this week that said Choi Kang-hee (Heart to Heart) wasn’t going to do this drama. I don’t know what they did to get her back onboard, but now she’s back to possibly headlining the cast of MBC’s upcoming melodrama Dazzling Temptation, which reunites her with the... More »

Oh My Ghostess: Episode 14
by | August 15, 2015 | 220 Comments
It’s a rough day to be Sun-woo, because there’s hardly a moment for him to process his complicated feelings before a new bomb gets dropped in his lap, which could very well implode his whole family. It only took fourteen episodes, but we finally have our three leads sleuthing their way towards the truth together,... More »

First love and husband reunions in Twenty Again
by | August 14, 2015 | 51 Comments
Muahaha, I love the continuing series of teasers for tvN’s new Friday-Saturday drama Twenty Again, featuring everyone’s reactions to seeing Choi Ji-woo on campus as a college freshman. The latest ones feature First Love Lee Sang-yoon (Liar Game) and Husband Choi Won-young (I Remember You), both university professors whose lives get upended when our heroine... More »

Scholar Who Walks the Night: Episode 12
by | August 13, 2015 | 213 Comments
Stupid, stupid humans. Why listen to the vampire who’s spent the last century searching for the right way to kill your common enemy? Why bother following the instructions in the super-secret diary that multiple generations of men have died to find? It’s so much more fun to hatch a half-baked plan and risk everyone’s lives...

MBC’s new Monday-Tuesday melodrama Dazzling Temptation has cast its leads — or at least their childhood counterparts, who will open the series in an extended 10-episode backstory. Kim Sae-ron (High School: Love On) has signed on to play the younger heroine, while Nam Joo-hyuk (Who Are You—School 2015) is considering an offer to play the... More »

Nam Joo-hyuk sure is in high demand these days — he’s set to follow up high school drama Who Are You—School 2015 with college campus drama Cheese in the Trap on tvN, but since that show has been delayed until January 2016, he’s planning to fill his time with MBC’s new Monday-Tuesday drama Dazzling Temptation...

Lee Jong-seok courted for medical drama Beautiful Mind
by | August 12, 2015 | 178 Comments
Apparently dramaland is hellbent on resuscitating Dr. Frankenstein — the drama about a geeeeeenius doctor with a split-personality (though the details of his actual condition are vague, which we’ll get to). It was once courting Kim Soo-hyun to star, then later Yoo Ah-in, but kept getting delayed on KBS’s schedule. It’s looking to make a... More »

We’ve got more casting additions to tvN’s new romance drama from PD Kim Byung-soo of Nine and Queen Inhyun’s Man. The new series, called Bubblegum, stars Jung Ryeo-won (Medical Top Team) and Lee Dong-wook (Mandate of Heaven) as the leads in the “adult fairytale” about people who are all lacking in some way, who become...

Jo Jung-seok considers role as D.O.’s Hyung
by | August 10, 2015 | 34 Comments
I can only think of Jo Jung-seok as Chef right now, but I guess he has to go back to movies once Oh My Ghostess is over. It’s not like he can neglect his film career or Ghostess can keep going on forever, right? Sadface. But this next project sounds like an interesting one: Jo... More »

Oh My Ghostess: Episode 11
by | August 7, 2015 | 125 Comments
Either it’s opposite day, or all our characters are undergoing some big changes. What I like about Oh My Ghostess is that the situation under the surface keeps changing, so that even if the day-to-day is the same, our characters’ experiences and feelings may have shifted entirely. As expected, our ghost’s feelings only deepen with... More »
