And now for SBS’s awards! I thought yesterday’s ceremony over at MBC was a bit lackluster, but maybe that was more about not really loving MBC’s dramas of the past year and not having seen very many of their winners. It’s a different story over at SBS, which had a bunch of shows (and more... More »

Ojakkyo Brothers: Halftime report
by | January 17, 2012 | 116 Comments

Now that I’m at the halfway-ish point, it’s time... More »
