by | February 10, 2011 | 109 Comments
I’m kind of sick to death of seeing Hyun Bin (Secret Garden) in every Korean news story ever, but this campaign for sports/outerwear line K2 just made me smile, because he’s WORKIN’ IT, like Tyra-Banks-style-fierce, and I don’t even know why. He looks good, of course. But the poses make... More »

by | February 10, 2011 | 34 Comments
I’m not usually a huge fan of Céci photo shoots (a lot of them are on the boring end of the spectrum), but I like these photos of Wang Ji-hye, the actress in KBS’s President, though I know her more as the love-to-hate-her In-hee (Bot) of Personal Taste, aka the... More »

My Princess: Episode 11

There’s something that just really works about this couple, for me. She’s a little dense and he’s got a pretty large noble streak — though he hasn’t crossed over to the dark side of idiocy, yet — but together, they’re just so cute. The why-we-Should-Not-Be conflict is credible (and harks... More »

Yoo Ah-in models for Jack & Jill
by | February 8, 2011 | 119 Comments
It’s only ads for a clothing brand, but who am I to complain when it gives us more Yoo Ah-in? The scene-stealing Sungkyunkwan Scandal beast-man pretty-boy (can you be both? In his case, I say yes) traveled to New York last month to shoot his latest ads for casualwear brand... More »
