by | April 21, 2015 | 38 Comments
Ha, this’ll be a fun twist on a callback — Kim Sung-kyun, who played Answer Me 1994’s sweet and hapless country bumpkin Samcheonpo, will be joining Answer Me 1988 as one of the parents. It’s bizarre if you think about the fact that he played a college freshman in 1994 (he’s 35 in real life,... More »

Petty jealousy revs up on Producer’s morning commute
by | April 20, 2015 | 95 Comments

by | April 16, 2015 | 52 Comments
After watching Cha Tae-hyun (The Con Artists, Jeon Woo-chi) on the cast-member side of variety programming in 1 Night 2 Days, constantly being thwarted by fate (by which I mean producers who engineered his fate, of course), it’ll be a fun turnaround to see him playing a producer for that very show on his upcoming...
