Swearing goddesses and bashful fools for Ho-gu’s Love
by | January 26, 2015 | 57 Comments
Promo materials continue to look adorable for tvN’s upcoming romantic comedy Ho-gu’s Love, a show that totally appeals to me because I do love the alpha-girl-and-beta-male dynamic, and the Ho-gu of this series (played by Choi Woo-shik) is about as beta as you get. (His name literally means dummy!) It’s... More »

Here’s a peek at Ahn Jae-hyun’s vampire smoulder for his new drama Blood, headed to KBS on Mondays and Tuesdays next month. It wouldn’t be a proper vampire drama without some stylish brooding, so the first teaser (short as it is) doesn’t really have any other purpose than to give... More »

Get ready for a softer side of Se-gi this episode, who appears ready to sacrifice any and all shreds of self-respect in order to woo Ri-jin. Is it really a love triangle if two of the competing males are personalities inhabiting the same body? I have no idea, but I’m... More »
