The way that’s being teased (one excrutiatingly teensy drop at a time), I certainly hope it amounts to something worth waiting for,... More »

Lee Yo-won (49 Days) will be returning in the new MBC medical sageuk The Horse Healer, starring Jo Seung-woo (Go Go 70s, Tazza) as the titular horse whisperer. I could have gone with Dr. Horse, but that sounded more Mr. Ed, and less historical epic drama. Tags: Jo Seung-woo, Lee Yo-won... More »

Is it… don’t tell me… is it time for the up-do? Awwww yeah. I always get the best episodes. *mehrong at javabeans* Kang-to gets hardcore, throwing himself headlong into revenge.
