If ever there was a perfect example of conflicted feelings, this situation would be it.

I’d be making that face too if my ex-boyfriend created a hit webtoon airing our past relationship laundry and then attempted to appease me with flowers. The first stills are out for tvN’s newest romantic comedy couple Song Ji-hyo (Emergency Couple) and Byun Yo-han (Misaeng), shooting their first love-and-hate teaser for their new drama Ex-Girlfriend...

We’re two weeks out from the premiere of MBC’s latest historical drama, Hwajeong (Splendid Politics), which has just released another teaser (the first teaser has been out a week; the second is newer). The sageuk trappings look familiar — royal protagonists looking conflicted, royal antagonists looking shifty and/or dark, court intrigue — but man, if... More »

TOP and Ueno Juri to headline Korean-Japanese drama
by | March 31, 2015 | 44 Comments
It’s an interesting pairing, but not one I’m averse to: TOP (Tazza 2) and Japanese actress Ueno Juri (best known in Korea for Nodame Cantabile) are teaming up for a Korean-Japanese drama to be produced by CJ E&M.

School 2015 still without leading man, courts Yook Sung-jae to star
by | March 31, 2015 | 39 Comments
Okay, so leading man-boy might be more accurate for a series like Who Are You–School 2015, but the point is that the drama can’t seem to keep a leading actor interested for more than a week. First Kang Min-hyuk, then Nam Joo-hyuk, and now KBS’s next Monday-Tuesday drama still doesn’t have a leading man for... More »

The drama is about Jung Kyung-ho literally trading hearts with Kim So-yeon’s boyfriend (played by Jin Gu), which makes him go from a cold corporate shark that she finds insufferable, to a sappy...

Unprecedented team back with Six Flying Dragons
by | March 29, 2015 | 57 Comments
I posted about the drama Chaebol’s Daughter possibly getting the post-Heard It Through the Grapevine timeslot on SBS, but looks like they’ll have to wait a little longer to air, because a different drama has secured that slot. Instead of a present-day drama about a rich woman wanting to find someone to love her for... More »
