It might be a fast turnaround to dramaland for Park Yoochun, who has been offered the lead in a new project only months after completing his last. Reports circled that Sohn Ye-jin might be his co-star, but she turned down the role due to her movie schedule, which is too bad since she’s one of... More »

Arang and the Magistrate: Episode 1
by | August 15, 2012 | 136 Comments
Dangnabbit, this show is so silly, and so outrageous, but so my kind of thing. I mean, you have to go in knowing it’s balls-out insane. There are ghosts and reapers and kings of heaven and hell.

Faith: Episode 2
by | August 14, 2012 | 212 Comments
This is a show that can turn on a dime—from sweeping to hilarious to heart-stopping—and so far I’m cheering at every turn.

Answer Me 1997: Episodes 5-6
by | August 11, 2012 | 154 Comments
This show really knows how to take your heart through the wringer, but in the best way. It conveys that perfect smallness of adolescence, when that new pair of jeans or that one moment with your crush is your entire all-consuming world… But then life comes around once in a while to burst that bubble,...
