by | October 7, 2015 | 41 Comments
Village: Secret of Achiara launched today on SBS, and I was looking forward to seeing whether the show could maintain the creaky, eerie ambiance promised by the promos. I may be a wimp with the scary stuff, but I still want ghostly thrillers to scare me effectively, even if it... More »

I guess this means that Lee Jong-seok passed on the new crime movie One Line, because now Im Shi-wan (Misaeng) is fielding offers to headline the project. Well I can certainly see what image they’re going for in casting the lead. Im is coming off of shoots from his period... More »

by | October 6, 2015 | 56 Comments
I’m always wary of jumping onboard a long-running drama, because man that is a time commitment, but I did find Six Flying Dragons rather strong in its premiere. This is a drama with a lot of hype going in, and it’s a hype that didn’t really move me since sageuks... More »

You know, Three Meals a Day has only been off the air for a few weeks (while Na PD was busy running around China with the 1N2D boys), but I’ve missed it a little. I guess I’ve just gotten used to the low-key everyday farm hijinks. I’m even more excited... More »
