The Time I’ve Loved You releases first teasers (again)
by | June 12, 2015 | 59 Comments
Technically they’re not the first teasers, because the first one was plagiarized (groooooaaaan) from the animated short Jinxy Jenkins & Lucky Lou. Between this and It’s Okay, It’s Love last year, methinks the promo department at SBS needs a workshop in how not to steal. (Hint: It involves doing your own work.) Tags: Ha Ji-won,... More »

Oh no, what is going on over there on the set for Scholar Who Walks the Night? Yesterday the vampire-sageuk-fusion-fantasy drama sent lead actor Lee Jun-ki to the hospital with a fractured nose (not the beautiful, beautiful nose!), and now we’re hearing that leading lady Lee Yubi is also out with an injured back.

Kim Ji-won cameos as Kim Bum’s girlfriend for Hidden Identity
by | June 10, 2015 | 22 Comments
It’s only a guest appearance, but I won’t say no to seeing Kim Ji-won (Gap-dong, Heirs) putting in some screentime for tvN’s upcoming crime drama Hidden Identity, about a special investigative unit of undercover police officers.

I’ve gotten used to drama posters mostly being all the same these days, but I do find this one super cute for the KBS drama I Remember You, featuring Seo In-gook and Jang Nara as a police profiler and officer working on the same task force. I have to laugh a little at their respective... More »
