There were quite a few premieres this week, starting out with Beautiful Mind replacing the short drama Baek-hee Has Returned (which was inserted in order to give Mind more time) over on KBS, and Doctors replacing Jackpot over on SBS. Both are billed as medical dramas, but there was a substantial difference in the premiere... More »

Drama viewership ratings for the week of June 13-19, 2016

It’s a bit shocking (in a good way) to see the short drama Baek-hee Has Returned getting such high ratings throughout its two week run, ending with a pretty darn impressive 10.4%. Monster stayed in first place this week by a margin, while Jackpot finished its run with 10%, which, all told, isn’t too bad.... More »

Oh Snap! Kim Hye-soo stares into our souls
by | June 16, 2016 | 18 Comments
I’m proud of High Cut for simmering down a bit when it comes to shooting female stars, since there was a period where all they seemed to like were blank, vapid stares in gaudy locations. Maybe it’s just a phase—or maybe, they’re maturing. (It’s probably just a phase.) Either way, Kim Hye-soo looks amazing in... More »

Jackpot: Episode 24 (Final)

Oh, what could have been and wasn’t. Or what wasn’t, and should have been. But really, with Jackpot it’s a lot of what was, and definitely shouldn’t have been. But like every show must do, this one comes to an end. Of sorts. It’s actually not that bad in the grand scheme of things—it hits... More »

Jackpot: Episode 23
by | June 14, 2016 | 50 Comments
With a revolt in full swing, our two brothers are left on opposite sides of the spectrum when it comes to solving it. The choices come down to killing everyone or killing no one, and you can probably guess which brother takes which stance—and while it shouldn’t be so simple, it really, really is. If... More »

Oh Snap! Park Shin-hye makes summer significantly cooler
by | June 14, 2016 | 51 Comments
Maybe it’s because I’ve been sweltering in triple digits for the last few days, but doesn’t sunlight always look so much more pleasant in pictures? The stars never look like they’re sweating, there always seems to be a pleasant breeze, and their makeup never melts off. If photo spreads ever sell one fantasy more than... More »
