I love a drama that lets its secondary characters shine, proving once again that a king is only as strong as the people who stand behind him. With sidekicks this good, who needs heroes? Tags: featured, Ha Ji-won, Jo Jung-seok, Lee Seung-gi, Lee Soon-jae, Lee Yoon-ji, The King 2 Hearts... More »

Eun Ji-won stars in new sitcom
by | May 1, 2012 | 50 Comments
I’ve missed Eun Ji-won so dearly since his departure from hit variety show 1 Night 2 Days, but perhaps it won’t be long before he’s back on my to-watch roster again. On top of joining four variety shows as a regular, he’s added a new sitcom to his slate, and wait for it… IT’S SET... More »
