MBC in talks to conclude W with special broadcast
by | September 2, 2016 | 160 Comments
I’m not surprised that MBC is working on getting a special broadcast together for current Wednesday-Thursday ratings leader W–Two Worlds. The romance suspense drama about parallel worlds starring Lee Jong-seok and Han Hyo-joo isn’t a ratings juggernaut — I think it’s a little too fantasy for that, or in the words of my mother, “Too...

I hope you were really in the mood to have your heart served to you on a platter today, because that’s pretty much the only thing on the menu. You can order it bloody, filleted, or burnt to a crisp. Because who needs a heart anyway? It just gets in the way of things, like... More »

Moonlight Drawn By Clouds: Episode 4
by | August 30, 2016 | 380 Comments
Aaahhh, it’s getting so good! This show has such a lovely way with emotion, and setting, and tone. It’s a simple narrative that’s smartly directed, so that we’re made to feel every nervous pitter-patter of budding attraction, or heartache filled with yearning, and I just get swept away in what the characters are feeling in...

Hey guys, I’m just popping by this week to help out because we’re up to our eyeballs in premieres.

Oh I hope this casting sticks, because Yook Sung-jae (Village: Secret of Achiara) has been getting a lot of drama offers lately — Moonlight Drawn By Clouds, Shopping King Louie — that he ultimately turned down due to scheduling conflicts, but I’d like to see him in a drama before the year is out.

The earlier episodes twisted my brain, but this week’s episodes really twist my heart. The romance went from sweet to genuinely moving in the latest story arc, and I’m even starting to think that Fate may not be so cruel after all. Though that’s always what she wants you to think just before pulling the... More »

There were some rumors floating around last week that this second lead role in Goblin might go to various idol stars, but I’m glad that the offer went to Yoo Inna (One More Happy Ending) in the end. She just has a warmth to her that I like, and whether she’s playing leads or supporting... More »
