by | July 21, 2014 | 37 Comments
Character teasers are out for the fantasy-workplace-romance drama Surplus Princess, continuing tvN’s streak of bubbly, light-hearted previews for its romantic comedies.

by | July 16, 2014 | 76 Comments
Ooh, these teasers for Three Musketeers sure are gorgeous. Okay, they don’t tell us anything and are far more style than substance, but with a title like that and a background story that’s as (in)famous as that of Crown Prince Sohyeon, who died a mysterious death that has spurred speculation throughout the centuries, I suppose...
