Posters are out (a whole mess of ’em!) for MBC’s upcoming A Man Called God, and I can’t decide if I think they’re cool (a la Batman Begins) or unbearably cheesy (Batman & Robin). In the series, star Song Il-kook is back in a modern role after a couple high-profile... More »

If you’re like me, hearing the description of a drama featuring a “typical, ordinary Korean ajumma” with a child may run the risk of turning you off, but as with Last Scandal of My Life, I think SBS’s Oh! My Lady has potential. Plus: Chae Rim looks adorable. Tags: Chae... More »
