Can’t Lose: Episode 2
by | August 25, 2011 | 57 Comments
This drama isn’t high-concept, but I find the conflict and the characters engaging and funny and cute. It’s nice to watch a rom-com that feels like a classic screwball comedy, where a mismatched couple simply takes the long way ’round because they’re so riddled with flaws. (There’s actually an entire... More »

Three-part cable movie Girl K premieres this weekend
by | August 25, 2011 | 50 Comments
Is it a movie? Is it a drama? I dunno which classification is more apt for a three-part TV movie airing on cable, but in any case cable channel CGV’s Girl K looks pretty badass. Mixing action and thrills, Girl K is being called the “Korean Nikita,” which automatically piques... More »

Ah, so now we see what Choi Siwon was doing when he made that beachside tweet from the shoot of his drama Poseidon. Ogling bikini-clad ladies, of course. Hey, if you’re shooting an entire show on the beach/off the shore, there oughtta be perks, right? Then again, if we’re talking... More »

Can’t Lose: Episode 1
by | August 24, 2011 | 77 Comments
Can’t Lose premiered today on MBC, and was about what I expected: Light, cute, amusing, and with strong chemistry between the leads Choi Ji-woo and Yoon Sang-hyun. Also as expected, though, it had a tough time hanging in the ratings game (it recorded a 6.2%) with two strong competitors on... More »

LOL. They really did it! Dokko Jin did say that he’d move in on Seung-gi’s CF territory if he didn’t help get Gu Ae-jung on Steel Heart, and now it looks like he’ll be sharing the limelight (and hugs!) as a result. Capitalizing on the meta brilliance of the Hong... More »

Myung-wol the Spy: Episode 13
by | August 23, 2011 | 302 Comments
This show makes my blood boil. It’s not necessarily always a bad thing, since it means I’m that invested in the characters. But when they do stupid, assy things, it makes me tear my hair out. Once in love, Kang-woo is the bleeding heart kind of hero, which means that... More »
