Santa Strikes Back! [Year In Review, Part 6]
by | December 25, 2011 | 101 Comments
What the ever-lovin’ reindeer feculence? I get home from my overnight trans-earthian sleigh odyssey, settle back with my hard-earned fifths of whiskey to read up on what I’ve missed in dramaland, and find that they’ve finished the year-end reviews without me? This is an outrage! I know who’s getting their presents revoked this year! Goddamn... More »

  First off, I have to deeply thank – and bow to – Javabeans and Girlfriday – it’s an honor to be included with the most respected K-drama writers for this year. Compared to these fine people, I am an utter noob. Speaking of being such a noob, I shall now complain: It’s so hard to... More »

This girl used to make my blood boil.  She was so good at her evil eye rolling (Korean actresses seem to have a knack for this) as the bratty pop star in You’re Beautiful that at times I wondered if her eyes would permanently roll back into her skull. However, the much-delayed Birdie Buddy, which has... More »

What’s up, What’s Up?

Time to check in on several dramas-on-hold, although info is scarce: There’s been a noted lack of updates on the futures of What’s Up and Poseidon, which continue to languish in limbo. It doesn’t exactly bode well for their fates, especially considering that The Musical and Birdie Buddy are both in the same position, with... More »

Birdie Buddy is still adrift and without a broadcaster (so, ostensibly dead), but its producers aren’t just letting it fade away. At least, they’re trying to keep people interested, and have announced that they’ll unveil a teaser video on Youtube on March 18. The project began filming a whole year ago, at the end of... More »

After months of delays and shuffling around on the broadcast schedule, MBC has decided to drop Birdie Buddy from its upcoming lineup after all, which means that the golf drama that was to be singer UEE’s first leading role is no more.

UEE was supposed to debut in her first starring role this summer. But summer’s going by and Birdie Buddy is nowhere to be found. What gives? Looks like Group 8’s playing favorites, and Birdie Buddy is coming up with the short straw. It’s been six months since production began on the drama, but it hasn’t... More »

On the golf course with Birdie Buddy’s cast
by | June 8, 2010 | 22 Comments
The first thing I thought when seeing these photos from Birdie Buddy was, Thank god the dreadlocks are gone. Maybe with that monstrosity out of the way, we’ll be able to focus more on the plot and the drama’s other qualities? The golf drama starring UEE, Lee Da-hee, and Lee Yong-woo is filming much of...
