by | May 19, 2015 | 29 Comments
Interestingly, SBS’s Divorce Lawyer in Love is considering a two-episode extension, which is a surprise since the weekend rom-com isn’t doing very well in the ratings. But the latest news out of the show is that SBS is looking to extend its 16-episode run to 18, pushing its finale another week. According to a source... More »

Two Su Aes, one Mask
by | May 18, 2015 | 56 Comments
Oh, is THIS what Mask is actually about — a switched-places doppelganger story? There was no mention before of Su Ae playing two characters, but there’s no doubt about it in the teaser below, where the two Su Aes come face to face in wide-eyed shock to run into each other for the first time....

First script read for Scholar Who Walks the Night
by | May 18, 2015 | 76 Comments
Script reads usually aren’t that exciting, save for the fact that in this instance, there was a time just last month when I was convinced this show would never finish casting and get to this point. I mean, there’s casting drama and then there’s Scholar Who Walks the Night. But hey, we’re here now, and... More »

by | May 16, 2015 | 53 Comments
Aw no, I was so looking forward to PD Jo Soo-won taking the helm of The Time I’ve Loved You, 7000 Days (SBS’s remake of In Time With You starring Ha Ji-won and Lee Jin-wook), but a last-minute difference of creative opinion led him to quit the production on May 15. Jo PD is best... More »

Mercenary prosecutor by day, masked avenger by night
by | May 15, 2015 | 35 Comments
I’m split on the new posters for Masked Prosecutor — one of them is cute and sassy, while the other is generic and boring and makes Joo Sang-wook look like a doctor. Since you’re embracing the silly comedy, you could put him in his crazy vigilante Nacho Libre mask, but instead you choose that? Tags:... More »

Jung Jae-young, Song Yoon-ah, Ji Jin-hee for political drama Assembly
by | May 15, 2015 | 30 Comments
Ooh, will we see Jung Jae-young’s television debut this summer? It’s hard to believe that the 25-year veteran film actor has never stepped foot in dramaland, but he’s the kind of lead actor who regularly has two films released a year (Fatal Encounter, Wandering Blade, Moss), so I guess it’s safe to say he’s been...

Choi Siwon cameos as inept thief for Masked Prosecutor
by | May 14, 2015 | 35 Comments
Ahhhhhaha, I want this, and I want this now. As far as I’m concerned, Choi Siwon should only play idiots and goofballs, because he cracks me up so. Plus, he has a pretty good sense of humor and can have fun poking fun at himself, whether it’s playing a terrible actor (Oh My Lady) or... More »

Occult rom-com Ghostess adds a cop and a PD
by | May 14, 2015 | 30 Comments
I’ve liked every addition to Oh My Ghostess thus far, so I’m happy to hear that Im Joo-hwan is also joining the cast. I haven’t caught his latest projects (Ugly Alert, Shine or Go Crazy), but I have liked him whenever I’ve seen him (Tamra the Island, What’s Up), and I definitely like that the... More »
