Lee Soo-hyuk up for second lead in Lucky Romance
by | April 1, 2016 | 37 Comments
Aw, it’s not a lead role, but I do think I’d like to see Lee Soo-hyuk joining the MBC romantic-comedy series Lucky Romance, since I tend to like him best in supporting roles anyway — his most recent turn in OCN’s comic action-thriller Neighborhood Hero was super endearing, plus he made an unhinged vampire compelling...

Hee, I think this teaser will be just the thing to bookmark for a bad workday. Ji Sung dancing around like a nut is definitely a cure for something. Possibly a great many things.

Eric meets Oh Hae-young and Oh Hae-young Again
by | March 30, 2016 | 42 Comments
