Records of a Night Watchman: Episode 1
by | August 4, 2014 | 132 Comments
MBC’s new supernatural fusion sageuk Records of a Night Watchman premiered today, and I don’t know if it’s because I set my expectations really low (or because the really terrible trailers made me), but the show is off to a decent start. Granted, it’s a world filled with ghosts, magic,... More »

Ji Chang-wook’s slow-and-steady philosophy
by | August 4, 2014 | 37 Comments
I’m not exactly sure why an interview was done with Ji Chang-wook (there wasn’t any talk of his upcoming project Healer), but if every actor comes across as likable and grounded as this one, I won’t ask questions, just happily translate. He wrapped shooting on Empress Ki at the end... More »

by | August 4, 2014 | 38 Comments
javabeans: It’s another Flower Males traveling show! This one really snuck up on me—maybe it had less of a profile as Grandpas or Noonas, or maybe (more likely) I’m just a little bit… I don’t mean to say tired of the show, but used to might be more accurate. I... More »

Kolorful Palette: Runaway bride [Marriage Not Dating]
by | August 3, 2014 | 39 Comments
I watched the first eight episodes of Marriage Not Dating in two days, so I guess I must really like it (especially with all the other dramas currently on my plate). I honestly didn’t have high hopes that I would enjoy this show since I didn’t particularly enjoy Yeon Woo-jin... More »

High School King of Savvy: Episode 14
by | August 3, 2014 | 214 Comments
Oh, this drama… it hurts so good. Jin-woo’s discovery of Min-seok’s secret ends up opening a whole new can of angsty worms as he debates about what to do. Meanwhile, Min-seok and his allies work desperately to find some way out of their predicament. It’s fascinating (not to mention highly... More »
