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 »

Scholar Who Walks the Night: Episode 10
by | August 6, 2015 | 195 Comments
It’s a turning point in the romance and the plot, though the plot half of that is debatable when we’re talking about this show. Don’t get me wrong—stuff totally happens. It’s just that Scholar’s plot has a way of introducing new information that’s a lot like the old information, dressed in new information clothing. Thankfully... More »

by | August 5, 2015 | 39 Comments
Kim Nam-gil (Shark) as Seolhyun’s boyfriend? That is such an odd pairing, I don’t even know what to make of it. The idol actress who recently had her first headlining role as a teen vampire in Orange Marmalade was recently cast in the new thriller film Murderer’s Guide to Memory — she’s up for the... More »

Oh My Ghostess: Episode 10
by | August 4, 2015 | 244 Comments
Love is in the air, but along with all of the giddy highs of romance comes a new set of complications for our lovebirds—namely that there are technically three birds in this nest. When your love triangle involves the dead, it raises some interesting questions and crosses a lot of wires, even when all of... More »

SBS has announced their next Wednesday-Thursday drama to follow Joo-won and Kim Tae-hee’s Yong-pal: It’s called Village, and is described as a “corpse-chasing thriller” that unpacks a mystery that begins with the discovery of a dead body in a sleepy little village.

Lee Dong-wook and Jung Ryeo-won’s Bubblegum will... More »

This would be a dream pairing of leading men if it happened, though I suppose that’s just a regular day for Ha Jung-woo (Chronicle of a Blood Merchant). Kim Woo-bin (Heirs) is entertaining an offer to star in a new fantasy movie, which is currently courting Ha Jung-woo. It’s an adaptation of a manhwa series... More »

Scholar Who Walks the Night: Episode 8
by | July 30, 2015 | 183 Comments
It’s not the most smoothly executed show, but I like that the story gains some momentum today, with a major development in our conspiracy-to-uncover-the-conspiracy plot that actually ties everyone together rather nicely. By which I mean torturously, with many lives on the line. Do you think if I started a drinking game for whenever Yang-sun... More »
