Goodbye Mr. Black: Episode 4
by | March 24, 2016 | 77 Comments
Good news: The setup is complete and the final betrayal forces our hero to shed his innocent trust in other people. Okay, so that’s not good news for him, strictly speaking, but it IS good news for us because we say goodbye to good guy Ji-won and say hellooooo, Mr. Black. We’ve all been waiting... More »

Kim Myung-min, Byun Yo-han consider reunion in movie One Day
by | March 24, 2016 | 19 Comments
Dragons, unite! It’s a little soon for a reunion when their 50-episode drama just ended this week, but I don’t think anyone will be complaining about seeing these two together again. Kim Myung-min and Byun Yo-han, who played Jung Do-jeon and his warrior bodyguard in SBS’s Six Flying Dragons, are up for a possible reunion... More »

by | March 23, 2016 | 35 Comments
My my, they just keep lining up good actors for this project. Though I guess once you score A-list film actress Jeon Do-yeon (The Shameless, Secret Sunshine) to headline your drama, you’d be crazy not to give her charismatic co-stars to work with. The Korean remake of the critically-acclaimed American television series The Good Wife... More »

by | March 22, 2016 | 78 Comments
MBC’s probably got another rom-com hit on their hands now that Hwang Jung-eum (She Was Pretty, Kill Me, Heal Me) has officially accepted the offer to headline Lucky Romance, an adaptation of a quirky webtoon about a luck-obsessed heroine, a penny-pinching landlord, and a plot to cure a streak of bad luck with a one-night...

javabeans: Well, it finally happened and a Na PD show got hit with criticism after last week’s episode aired. It’s mostly settled by now and it feels like people are ready to move on, but for a few days there was a wave of discontent over what audiences perceived as unmannerly behavior by the youths,...

Jo Jin-woong to reunite with Kundo, Nameless Gangster director
by | March 18, 2016 | 34 Comments
I know, I already miss seeing Jo Jin-woong’s face every week in Signal. It’s impossible not to, after his performance in that show. But the good news is that he’s got a whole slew of new movies lined up to premiere this year, tvN’s remake of Entourage on the way (where he’ll play the Ari... More »

Goodbye Mr. Black: Episode 2
by | March 17, 2016 | 106 Comments
This is definitely more of what I wanted from Goodbye Mr. Black—our hero on the run, pushed to the brink with nowhere to go and everyone closing in on him. He was less interesting as the perfect golden boy who had it all, but now that we’re starting to see a glimpse of what he’ll... More »

Song, dance, and the pursuit of happiness for Neighborhood Lawyer
by | March 17, 2016 | 37 Comments
Based on premise alone, I haven’t really been clamoring to watch KBS’s upcoming Monday-Tuesday law drama Neighborhood Lawyer Jo Deul-ho, but the teasers are definitely weird and intriguing, enough to make me wonder if the show will have an interesting farcical bent to it. The webtoon adaptation starring Park Shin-yang (Sign) and Kang So-ra (Warm... More »
