I think I’m a bigger fan of the movie’s... More »

Damn, that is one epic headdress. I’m not that wowed by the posters for the upcoming fusion sageuk The Great Seer (Daepoongsoo), but the stills of Ji Jin-hee as the savage warrior are kinda rockin’ my socks off.

Okay, this episode made me change my mind about wanting all feelings out in the open, because our hero’s achy breaky heart just kills me. It’s. So. Sweet. It’s a great example of when angst can be so good when it’s motivated by larger-than-life conflict, and when trying to hide your bleeding heart can be... More »
