Im Joo-hwan is one to watch in 2010
by | December 5, 2009 | 62 Comments
What a great year for Im Joo-hwan — he had roles in films like 2008’s Doremifasolatido and Frozen Flower, but 2009 was his year to shine. Although it was a short part, any exposure in Boys Before Flowers was enough to create a buzz, as he got when he appeared... More »

Lee Yo-won feels the pressure of Seon-deok’s ratings
by | December 5, 2009 | 45 Comments
You’d think that with ratings in the mid-30% range, Queen Seon-deok would be satisfied with its performance, but the fact is that it has experienced a 10% drop in the past few weeks, meaning that it’s essentially lost nearly a quarter of its audience since Go Hyun-jung made her big... More »

Smile: Episode 20
by | December 4, 2009 | 69 Comments
This was one of the first episodes in quite awhile that I didn’t fawn over. I’m starting to feel that Jung-in and Hyun-soo’s relationship is moving into the sugary sweet arena, which makes me a bit antsy. The drama has done a good job of keeping things organic and need... More »

Jang Geun-seok buried in drama offers
by | December 3, 2009 | 111 Comments
(What an adorable picture. It’s like Jang Geun-seok’s softer personality with Hwang Tae-kyung’s sharper wardrobe, which is, if we must split things up between them, the better way to do it.) In any case, it comes as no surprise that Jang Geun-seok, coming off his very popular role in the... More »

Thirty-five-year-old actor Uhm Tae-woong has been acting as Kim Yu-shin for the past several months in MBC’s Queen Seon-deok, and now sheds the historical costuming for his new photo spread in Nylon.

Here’s an on-set look at KBS’s Invincible Lee Pyeong-gang, which has taken up a small corner of the Monday-Tuesday prime-time lineup.
