Joo Ji-hoon might be returning to television this year: It’s been two years since his last drama, Medical Top Team, and he’s reportedly being courted to star in SBS’s new melodrama Mask.

The loser gets a second shot at love in Superdaddy Yeol
by | March 5, 2015 | 28 Comments
The teasers for this show are really funny, but tvN also has a habit of reeling me in with awesome teasers that don’t always match the show. I think in Superdaddy Yeol’s case, the tone should hold up, as we watch Lee Dong-gun (Mi-rae’s Choice) go from a slacker bachelor to responsible superdaddy material in... More »

Falling for Innocence’s lighthearted teasers and posters
by | March 4, 2015 | 51 Comments
I’m thinking this melodrama isn’t going to be all that melodramatic. The promo materials for JTBC’s new Friday-Saturday drama Falling for Innocence seem closer to rom-com than I had anticipated, which is just fine by me. The new series stars Jung Kyung-ho (Endless Love) as a man who gets a new heart and a personality... More »

Let the food fights begin on Let’s Eat 2
by | March 4, 2015 | 48 Comments
We might as well prepare ourselves for the impending calorie spike ahead. Season 2 of tvN’s surprise-hit food-obsessed drama Let’s Eat is gearing up to bring us another torturous array of delicious dishes. Let’s Eat 2 brings back Yoon Doo-joon as Gu Dae-young, aka Shiksha-nim, food blogger and general know-it-all nosy neighbor. This time he’ll... More »

Song Ji-hyo courted to join Byun Yo-han’s Ex-Girlfriend Club
by | March 4, 2015 | 67 Comments
Hm, the last time Song Ji-hyo played someone’s ex, it wasn’t as much fun as I had hoped — Emergency Couple did have its outlandish moments, but it wasn’t exactly what I’d call a healthy relationship that needed a second go. Perhaps she’ll have better luck with Byun Yo-han (Misaeng) in tvN’s new Friday-Saturday romantic... More »

Sensory Couple adds Namgoong Min, Yoon Jin-seo
by | March 3, 2015 | 45 Comments
On one hand, I like these two new additions to Sensory Couple — but on the other hand, why are Namgoong Min (My Secret Hotel) and Yoon Jin-seo (Twelve Men in a Year) still stuck in second lead roles instead of headlining? (To be fair, it’s not that they’ve never played a drama lead, but... More »

I love it. This drama is doing so many things right, and it’s not even on the air yet. Producer, the new KBS drama from the writer of You From Another Star, is courting Gong Hyo-jin (It’s Okay, It’s Love) to complete the leading cast. If she signs on, she’ll play opposite Cha Tae-hyun, which... More »

Kim So-hyun joins Yoochun (yet again) for Sensory Couple
by | March 2, 2015 | 54 Comments
Kim So-hyun (Reset, Suspicious Housekeeper) is joining SBS’s Sensory Couple, and she’ll be playing the little sister to the drama’s hero, played by Yoochun (Three Days). Aw, how cute. She’s a talented budding actor and good enough to handle leading roles herself (though there just aren’t that many available for precocious 15-year-olds), though for now... More »
