by | May 13, 2015 | 146 Comments
Just as the title says, Warm and Cozy turns out to be a warm and cozy show, in a nicely comfortable way. It’s not the most exciting first hour of a show ever, and perhaps it could have been bolstered by a heavier dose of plot, but this is a... More »

by | May 13, 2015 | 51 Comments
Okay, Kim Sun-ah looks way too glamorous in these Masked Prosecutor stills to be a detective on the job — more like a fashion model posing in a cop-themed shoot, maybe — but I’m certainly not going to complain about her kicking ass and fighting crime. And Joo Sang-wook should... More »
