Song Seung-heon considers Saimdang opposite Lee Young-ae
by | July 24, 2015 | 65 Comments
So… the last time Song Seung-heon did sageuk, it was Dr. Jin… yeeeaaaaaah. On the upside, SBS’s large-scale biopic drama Saimdang, the Herstory is most definitely NOT going to be Dr. Jin.

Scholar Who Walks the Night: Episode 6
by | July 23, 2015 | 172 Comments

Apparently doctors can have code names and rooftop chases too, and if this second teaser is any indication, this doc will be getting into his fair share of scrapes and seeing plenty of action. Is it too... More »

Snap, crackle, and pop. Well our ghostess sure doesn’t waste any time. At this point, we’d be disappointed if she did, right? She’s always been about making the most of her precious remaining time, which makes sense given that she has the benefit of hindsight and is full of regrets about dying young. But today... More »

Okay, if you can get Lee Hyun-woo (Battle of Yeonpyeong) and Yook Sung-jae (Who Are You—School 2015) to headline your drama, I almost don’t care that I still can’t figure out what the heck it’s about.
