by | January 30, 2015 | 28 Comments
This historical epic is assembling a pretty epic cast: MBC’s new sweeping sageuk Hwajeong (short for Splendid Politics) already has the likes of Cha Seung-won, Lee Sung-min, and Lee Yeon-hee onboard, and now Kim Jae-won (Scandal) is joining them to play Cha Seung-won’s rival. I know, who in his right mind would rival Cha Seung-won?... More »

The newest installment of Three Meals a Day, the cooking-reality-suffering show produced by PD Na Young-seok, is premiering next week, which called for a press conference on the afternoon of January 9. This series is titled Three Meals a Day: Fishing Village, and inexplicably, Na PD’s three newest victims showed up wearing formal tuxes, which... More »

by | January 2, 2015 | 58 Comments
The Three Meals a Day spinoff seems to have just settled on Three Meals a Day: Fishing Village as its title, and you can’t argue with that since it’s literally that: Na PD taking three actors, plonking them down in a far-off fishing village, and making them work for their three square meals a day....

Thank goodness for title changes.

You’re All Surrounded: Episode 19

The pressure mounts on all sides, and our team gets backed into a corner with nothing left to do but lean on each other. As far as finale setups go, this is a pretty good one—it’s plot-heavy since we have to set the stage for the big takedown, but we stop to let the reactions... More »

You’re All Surrounded: Episode 18

Now that’s more like it. This episode kicks it up a notch with speedy results and hefty emotional payoff, after weeks spent keeping us on ice. Our poor guppy gets hit with a tsunami of truth, and if he weren’t surrounded by such good friends, I’d worry that he might drown. Painful as it is,... More »

You’re All Surrounded: Episode 17
by | July 9, 2014 | 59 Comments
There are big revelations for our hero, but by and large it’s an episode spent circling the wagons, which isn’t terribly exciting since we’re chomping at the bit for results, not strategizing sessions. Obviously we can’t get there until our characters have caught up to the truth, but could we maybe get there an eensy... More »

It’s almost a hug! That’s practically a hug, right? The things a girl’s gotta do to keep the bromance alive around here. We make some big strides today—we finally get a few key reveals in the overarching story, but as usual the more enjoyable parts of the episode are the small moments between our crabby... More »

You’re All Surrounded: Episode 15
by | July 2, 2014 | 71 Comments
Our not-a-couple spends the entire episode trying desperately to hide their embarrassment and not let their feelings show, which of course makes said fluttery feelings blatantly obvious to the rest of the universe (and to us, hee). It’s an amusing hour filled with denials, company-mandated skinship, and a surprise sleepover that makes my day.  ... More »
