by | June 27, 2012 | 149 Comments
Rooftop Prince’s Jung Yumi has been cast as the lead in the manhwa adaption of City Conquest, starring Kim Hyun-joong as a city-conquering noir hero on a revenge mission.

Big: Episode 8
by | June 26, 2012 | 261 Comments
There are twists and turns and major decisions, some of which I wish we didn’t decide so hastily. We also start to unravel Kyung-joon’s backstory and the mystery of Yoon-jae and Kyung-joon’s connection. The way that’s being teased (one excrutiatingly teensy drop at a time), I certainly hope it amounts to something worth waiting for,... More »

Lee Yo-won (49 Days) will be returning in the new MBC medical sageuk The Horse Healer, starring Jo Seung-woo (Go Go 70s, Tazza) as the titular horse whisperer. I could have gone with Dr. Horse, but that sounded more Mr. Ed, and less historical epic drama. Tags: Jo Seung-woo, Lee Yo-won... More »

Gaksital: Episode 8

Is it… don’t tell me… is it time for the up-do? Awwww yeah. I always get the best episodes. *mehrong at javabeans* Kang-to gets hardcore, throwing himself headlong into revenge. He goes even further to create his cover, becoming an even bigger bastard than he was before (if that’s even possible). And yet, I just... More »

Big: Episode 6

Okay, I don’t know if they did that time jump because the previous episodes were missing that spark, but man I’m glad they did. It’s a new year and a new show, as far as I’m concerned. I might be putting too much stock in the potential that comes out of where we find all... More »

by | June 16, 2012 | 43 Comments
Jung Yumi is looking great in the stills for I Need Romance 2012, the sequel to tvN’s hit single-women-in-the-city romantic comedy. The trailer is a mess, but… at least it looks like an entertaining mess? The stills of the happy couple (that’d be with Lee Jin-wook, the soon-to-be-ex long-term boyfriend) are adorable. It probably helps... More »
