It’s Okay, Daddy’s Girl: Episode 1

Kim Heung-soo added to President
by | November 25, 2010 | 11 Comments
KBS’s upcoming politics-themed drama President has added Kim Heung-soo to its cast, which piques my interest because this guy can be a pretty sexy bastard onscreen (which is the description that came most often to mind when watching romantic-comedy drama Invincible Lee Pyeong-gang, where he played a scheming villain). It’s... More »

So here we are. The finale. Tamra, you have been an excellent drama. While obviously the (cursed) cut hurt the ending, I still utterly adore you. And utter adoration is really all you can ask. [As this is the final Tamra recap, I’d like to give nattacatta a big thank-you... More »

Earlier this week, star-studded rom-com My Princess held its first script reading, and I would’ve given my left foot to be a fly on the wall of that room. Because if it went the way I imagine, this drama is going to be one epic crash and burn. Please, someone... More »
