Going back to high school is bad enough as it is; if teachers pinched my cheeks I’d be perpetually angry too.

The boy who can’t feel and the Girl Who Sees Smells
by | March 12, 2015 | 61 Comments
The first teaser is out for SBS’s new Wednesday-Thursday drama Girl Who Sees Smells, and though the production is super low-rent (really, you couldn’t manage to think of anything other than shooting on an empty soundstage?), I can actually see Park Yoochun and Shin Se-kyung being cute together.

Cha Seung-won dons his villain’s hat for Hwajeong
by | March 10, 2015 | 65 Comments
There was a time in my life when envisioning Cha Seung-won playing a future king or dignified gentleman would have been obvious—the default setting, really.
