A deluge of new stills from Secret Garden
by | October 21, 2010 | 92 Comments
Admittedly, I don’t have high expectations for SBS’s body-swapping fantasy-romantic-melo-comedy (woo, genre mishmash overload!) Secret Garden, despite liking the main cast (Hyun Bin, Ha Ji-won, Yoon Sang-hyun, Kim Sa-rang, Philip Lee). And I am not a fan of the On Air and Lovers writer-PD pairing. But I’m not writing it...

Most of the time, fashion magazines walk a fine line between artsy and crazy, but they usually play it safe: pretty people looking pretty in designer duds. But this shoot adds just enough whimsy to tip it onto fully crazy…and I inexplicably love it. What? Birds totally go with haute... More »

Actress Park Shi-yeon (Coffee House, Story of a Man) took to the streets of New York to attend the 25-year anniversary gala for Tommy Hilfiger, and shot a photo spread for Cosmopolitan in their new fall line. I know it’s stating the obvious, but she really does look good in... More »

Tamra the Island: Episode 6
by | October 19, 2010 | 34 Comments
Beware: steer clear of irate diver women if you are trying to run away. This episode was fun and eventful, and I love the speedy pace so far. It stretches out the plot points to the right moment- it doesn’t become repetitive or, conversely, resolve issues too quickly without building... More »
