Well, he may be playing someone else’s rival if Jang Hyuk (Master of Trade—Inn 2015) passes on this drama too, but let’s be optimistic that Beautiful Mind will land itself a leading man this time around. Maybe it’ll have a lucky day and land a second lead as well, because an offer is currently out... More »

The new Noh Hee-kyung drama Dear My Friends is headed to tvN in May, and I wasn’t expecting this, but the teasers are pretty hysterical. The drama is full of respected veteran stars, who all take turns making fun of themselves in the teasers and poking a bit of fun at each other too. The... More »

Page Turner: Episode 2
by | April 3, 2016 | 94 Comments
Our caustic heroine meets her match in the sweet, dumb jock who’s so earnest that her insults just bounce off of him like he’s surrounded by an invisible shield of positivity. It’s the beginning of a beautiful friendship, methinks, or at least a hilarious one. I’m really enjoying this little youth drama, and this episode... More »

Goodbye Mr. Black: Episode 6
by | March 31, 2016 | 47 Comments
I’m honestly still confused by yesterday’s episode and our hero’s choices thus far, but on the upside, at least we know he’s making deliberate choices now and that he has a plan? ‘Cause I’ll be frank with you—I was about 50-50 on that yesterday. It’s pretty funny how your expectations can go so quickly from,... More »

Eric meets Oh Hae-young and Oh Hae-young Again
by | March 30, 2016 | 42 Comments
Aw, this teaser already makes me root for Seo Hyun-jin, who just plays such a good everygirl underdog heroine (a la Let’s Eat 2), and is going to face such an uphill battle being constantly compared to Jeon Hye-bin (Joseon Gunman) at every turn. Their new Monday-Tuesday drama for tvN, Oh Hae-young Again, is about... More »

Lee Jung-jae courted to play king’s bodyguard in new historical film
by | March 29, 2016 | 9 Comments
Lee Jung-jae AS A BODYGUARD? Is anyone else remembering Sandglass and having a moment right now? I loved Lee Jung-jae in that drama so damn much. Anyway, he’s up to play a very different kind of bodyguard this time, in a sageuk about Prince Gwanghae called Enemy Soldier. So, less romance and more bromance. It’s... More »
