SBS wins the battle for Jealousy Incarnate
by | April 20, 2016 | 70 Comments
Dude, the behind-the-scenes drama for this drama is hilariously entertaining. KBS and SBS have been fighting over the new romantic comedy Jealousy Incarnate for over a week now, with both stations announcing in turn that they had confirmed the drama and given it a timeslot on their schedules, which obviously couldn’t be true. The new... More »

Lee Se-young stars opposite Suho in fantasy drama
by | April 19, 2016 | 23 Comments
Okay, so I still have no idea if the new fantasy drama How Are You Bread is or isn’t a web drama (because they keep talking about it in the press as if it’s a full-length drama, but it doesn’t sound like the plot of a TV drama to me), or if EXO’s Suho is... More »

Oh this sounds fun. There’s a new drama in the works over at tvN called Bring It On, Ghost, and it’s a cohabitation comedy about a ghost and an exorcist. That’s certainly the oddest set of roommates I’ve heard of in a while. The drama is being adapted from the webtoon of the same name... More »

Ryu Joon-yeol and Hwang Jung-eum get handsy for Lucky Romance
by | April 19, 2016 | 168 Comments
I feel like Entertainer and Lucky Romance are already competing against each other with dueling couple photo shoots, even though the shows won’t be overlapping until late May, and not even for very long at that. But it’s inevitable when you’ve got Ji Sung going up against Hwang Jung-eum, and Hyeri going up against Ryu... More »

EXO’s Suho stars in fantasy romance drama
by | April 18, 2016 | 46 Comments
Did EXO have a press day or something? Groupmate D.O. just joined fantasy movie With the Gods, and now Suho (Kim Joon-myun) is headlining a new drama. I’m less familiar with Suho’s acting, since he’s only been in one thing — angsty youth movie Glory Day/One Way Trip opposite Ji-soo and Ryu Joon-yeol, which I... More »

Goodbye Mr. Black: Episode 10
by | April 15, 2016 | 30 Comments
I actually enjoyed this episode, because people start to be less predictable, which leads to crucial mistakes on both sides. I like it when a drama shakes up the established pattern—taking the conflict out of the corporate boardroom, for example, which was much needed in Goodbye Mr. Black—and lets everyone fly off the handle a...
