The characters in this drama bring a smile to my face, both individually and in the way they relate to each other. Especially Jin-soo, who is charming in a way that is similar to Chep in Pasta but without all the shouting and misogyny and throwing of food. I enjoy... More »

Ryu Seung-beom’s W Korea shoot
by | May 21, 2010 | 15 Comments

Kim Soo-hyun featured in Ceci
by | May 20, 2010 | 25 Comments
I could hardly recognize Kim Soo-hyun (Will It Snow For Christmas) in his latest photo shoot, which is accompanied by an interview in the June issue of Céci magazine. I think he looks fantastic (except maybe in the last shot, because somehow it looks like they styled him as a... More »
