Joo Sang-wook, Choi Kang-hee for MBC’s Dazzling Temptation
by | August 16, 2015 | 56 Comments
Wait, there was a whole round of stories earlier this week that said Choi Kang-hee (Heart to Heart) wasn’t going to do this drama. I don’t know what they did to get her back onboard, but now she’s back to possibly headlining the cast of MBC’s upcoming melodrama Dazzling Temptation,... More »

Last: Episode 3

Tae-ho may have been able to establish himself as one of the Seoul Seven by his tenacity (and perhaps pure dumb luck), but attempting to take out the rest of the Seven won’t be so easy. Not that it was easy before, exactly. But it’s definitely an uphill battle so... More »

Oh My Ghostess: Episode 13
by | August 14, 2015 | 153 Comments
Ah, there’s lots of hurt feelings and confusion in the wake of last week’s big turn, but also a gradual clarity that emerges from the emotional morass. I feel like I’ve been holding my breath all series long for this kind of payoff, with the characters reacting in ways that... More »

Our cast will stop at nothing this week to grab the three open spots for the Running Man Production’s latest drama.

Director Kwak Jung-hwan is in talks to come back with a new blockbuster action-spy drama, this time for cable channel OCN, and here’s to hoping he gives us more of the action and intrigue of Chuno and Conspiracy in the Court that made him famous, rather than the disappointments of... More »

Yong-pal: Episode 3
by | August 14, 2015 | 104 Comments
I like it. I really, really like it. Yong-pal is sleek, stylish, but most of all, human—and it never gets so caught up in its beautiful and sometimes haunting imagery that it forgets what it wants to say. It’s just the opposite actually, since the visuals work to add depth... More »

Scholar Who Walks the Night: Episode 12
by | August 13, 2015 | 213 Comments
Stupid, stupid humans. Why listen to the vampire who’s spent the last century searching for the right way to kill your common enemy? Why bother following the instructions in the super-secret diary that multiple generations of men have died to find? It’s so much more fun to hatch a half-baked... More »
