by | October 9, 2015 | 36 Comments
HAHA, I have to hand it to them — this first teaser for Answer Me 1988 is pretty awesome.

Yup, blue eyeshadow, thick eyebrows, blood-red... More »

Looking for eternal love in Dazzling Temptation
by | September 30, 2015 | 24 Comments
The new posters for MBC’s Dazzling Temptation are as pretty as the last, all lush and dreamy with a hint of sadness. Or maybe more than a little sadness, since the whole production screams melodrama and tears.
