by | October 26, 2016 | 71 Comments
Okay, I’m just as excited about Legend of the Blue Sea as the next drama fan, but we’ve gone from nothing at all to an explosion of teasers and promos and stills in this past week alone. Moderation doesn’t really seem to be the show’s strategy, does it? Though I suppose I shouldn’t be ungrateful.... More »

Kim Sang-joong considers being Rebel Hong Gil-dong’s father
by | October 26, 2016 | 17 Comments
Kim Sang-joong (Jingbirok, Bad Guys) is one of those actors who makes the screen come alive with his raw charismatic energy. I’d say he has a vibe similar to Choi Min-soo or Kim Myung-min, in that he just radiates an aura of power. If you’ve seen any of his past works like Bad Guys or... More »

Drinking Solo to order up a second round?
by | October 26, 2016 | 73 Comments
Yay, let’s toast! Funny slice-of-life comedy Drinking Solo just ended its run yesterday on tvN, and already there’s talk of a second season for the show. It’s great news in my book, since I already miss the quirky characters and the lovely realism of the stories, and thought the drama felt short at sixteen episodes.... More »

Food, fists, and funny first encounters for Legend of the Blue Sea
by | October 25, 2016 | 86 Comments
The promos are flying fast and furious—and so are fists and feet, in this latest teaser for Legend of the Blue Sea. I’m happy to see that the tone is lighter and funnier in this teaser; not that I mind melancholy and romantic dramas, but I’d been expecting more comedy, particularly when we have the... More »

by | October 25, 2016 | 71 Comments
Ji-soo is on a roll! He just wrapped up work on JTBC’s recent Friday-Saturday drama Fantastic (and can still be seen in Moon Lovers: Scarlet Heart Ryeo, although that finished filming first), and now he’s lined up another JTBC project in Strong Woman Do Bong-soon.
