From shark to sappy romantic in Falling for Innocence
by | March 30, 2015 | 50 Comments
Every time I see more promo materials for JTBC’s new heart transplant melodrama Falling for Innocence, the funnier and cuter it looks. 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 »

Joo Sang-wook and Kim Sun-ah for new KBS vigilante drama
by | March 26, 2015 | 86 Comments
Okay, why does the mental picture of Joo Sang-wook as a caped crusader immediately give me the giggles? Maybe it’s because he’s been letting loose in a string of rom-coms lately (Birth of a Beauty, Sly and Single Again), but I can so picture him in a ridiculous hero costume involving mostly tights. Technically, the... More »

Oh Snap! Toons brought to life in Girl Who Sees Smells

How cute: SBS’s mystery-suspense-romantic-comedy series Girl Who Sees Smells has released a set of character drawings corresponding to the actor counterparts, as well as a manwha-inspired poster. These drawings don’t come from the original webtoon series, but it’s cool to see the show tipping its hat to its webtoon origins by rendering the cast —... More »

by | March 25, 2015 | 9 Comments
We just heard about Beloved Eun-dong, JTBC’s upcoming romance melodrama, when Joo Jin-mo signed on, and now the show is about to cast Kim Sa-rang as well (she’s positively considering, yada yada). I’m mostly sure she won’t be the main lead, although as with the previous round of casting news, the news is rather vague.... More »

Hyeri in contention for Answer Me 1988
by | March 24, 2015 | 84 Comments
Erm, am I missing something? Is Hyeri good in things that aren’t Hyde, Jekyll, Me? Granted, that’s the one and only project I’ve seen her in (and maybe you guys will tell me that she’s wonderful in her cable drama Seonam Girls’ High Investigation Unit), but I can’t say that I’m excited to hear that...
