After some initial casting setbacks, SBS’s new money-or-love melodrama Chaebol’s Daughter, the new series from the team behind A Warm Word, is back on track with a pair of leading ladies. The series has a new title as well: It’ll be called True Romance, which I guess is thematically relevant, though I sort of liked... More »

Angry Mom: Episode 14
by | April 30, 2015 | 172 Comments
I… I… I’m still a little emotionally traumatized by this episode. I hope I can get it together to write some comments, because I feel gutted and wrecked. In a good way, I swear, though this one really is a doozy. Every victory that was won yesterday causes a series of blowbacks that take their... More »

Kim Young-kwang courted for JTBC disaster drama D-Day
by | April 29, 2015 | 32 Comments
Well, I was fully expecting an idol lineup for the cast of JTBC’s new drama D-Day, since it was announced as a new drama production from SM C&C. I still wouldn’t call Kim Young-kwang an actor with “a weighty presence,” but I like him, especially in his more recent dramas where he’s found a good... More »

Producer’s playful partner-go-round posters
by | April 29, 2015 | 65 Comments
I’m kinda promo-ed out with Producer, even though I really am looking forward to the show. Mostly I just want it to hurry up and air already, so that we find out just what exactly this “real variety drama” looks like. I suspect it looks a lot like a regular drama that just happens to... More »

This might be a movie that I check out for the acting performances, though it’ll have to be a dark and gloomy kind of day to get me in the mood. Jeon Do-yeon (The Way Home, Countdown) and Kim Nam-gil (Pirates, Shark) pair up for the “hardboiled melo” The Shameless, about a detective who goes... More »

by | April 27, 2015 | 15 Comments
Hm, I guess they were going for cryptic? The first teaser is out for the new crime thriller drama Hidden Identity, and I don’t know any Morse code, but… I think your hidden message is not so hidden?

Angry Mom’s breakout rookie Ji-soo joins youth movie
by | April 24, 2015 | 63 Comments
Agh, I love this kid. So, so much. I know that rookie actor Ji-soo’s charm is ninety-five percent Go Bok-dong, his tough-on-the-outside, gooey-cookie-on-the-inside high school badass character in MBC’s Wednesday-Thursday drama Angry Mom. My brain knows this, but the drama is still current and I haven’t really worked out the separation yet. But really, a... More »
