Yay, some good news from tvN — Let’s Eat has secured a timeslot for its second season, and the show will move from its once-a-week slot on Thursdays, to Mondays and Tuesdays this coming spring. I have to say, the move to Monday-Tuesday makes me considerably happier about the second... More »

I can’t say that I’m surprised, but it’s still a bummer to hear that Three Musketeers may very well not get any more seasons, after being hyped up as a three-season, multimillion-dollar blockbuster project for tvN. According to a recent interview published by one media outlet, a source with the... More »

Healer: Episode 1
by | December 8, 2014 | 82 Comments
We’re off to a brisk start with Healer, which I was looking forward to mostly for the writer (Song Ji-nah of Sandglass, Legend, Story of a Man) and secondarily for the cast (though a cast is never enough on its own to entice me). I was most curious to see... More »

Misaeng: Episode 15
by | December 8, 2014 | 169 Comments
The big theme of the day is around acknowledgement, whether it be from colleagues, bosses, or family. It’s not something that comes easily, as it takes time and an empathic understanding of a person to acknowledge their worth. But the result is rewarding because in a world where there are... More »

Kim Yoon-seok and Kang Dong-won reunite in new film
by | December 8, 2014 | 15 Comments
Sigh, seeing this pairing back together again just makes me want to go watch Jeon Woochi for the millionth time. Nothing beats Kang Dong-won in that quirky wizard role, and Kim Yoon-seok is just always great, but especially great when he’s a badass. The two actors will be reuniting for... More »

Kim Myung-min considers a stint in prison for next movie
by | December 8, 2014 | 22 Comments
No, I don’t mean he’s actually going to prison, although when we’re talking about Kim Myung-min (aka Korea’s Method actor extraordinaire), you never know what lengths he’ll go to in the name of character analysis. It’s still in early stages, but the ever-busy Kim (A New Leaf, King of Dramas)... More »

Bad Guys: Episode 10
by | December 7, 2014 | 24 Comments
That doesn’t look like a bloody good time, does it? This is the episode where things we’ve come to known start to unravel at our feet. Not only do our characters start to suspect the truth that they’ve told, but I’m starting to doubt some of the things we’ve seen... More »

Valid Love: Episode 1

How strange and interesting. Valid Love, the long awaited comeback project for the writer of the impossible-not-to-love classic My Name Is Kim Sam-soon, premiered on cable network tvN earlier this week, and the result may leave you as cautiously optimistic as you are vividly unsettled. Let’s just hope the show... More »

Kolorful Palette: Jumping in Jordan [Misaeng]
by | December 6, 2014 | 40 Comments
For a long time now I’ve been putting off watching Misaeng, despite coming close several times. I made the mistake of looking at screenshots before giving it a go, which pretty much just gave me the impression that it features a lot of cubicles and office personnel standing around doing... More »
