Lee Won-geun up to play cop to Choi Kang-hee’s Mystery Queen

Hm, I worry that this pairing is reminiscent of the Joo-won/Choi Kang-hee pairing in Level 7 Civil Servant… but they wouldn’t recreate that dynamic on purpose, right? Though neither actor is confirmed, Lee Won-geun (The Good Wife) is currently in the running to star as the police detective who will work alongside ajumma novice sleuth... More »

Looking for eternal love in Dazzling Temptation
by | September 30, 2015 | 24 Comments
The new posters for MBC’s Dazzling Temptation are as pretty as the last, all lush and dreamy with a hint of sadness.

First love and prison tears for MBC melodrama Dazzling Temptation
by | September 23, 2015 | 37 Comments
Well the posters are pretty, I’ll give them that. And so are the childhood scenes, as expected. I’m just more than a little wary of MBC’s upcoming Monday-Tuesday drama Dazzling Temptation, mostly because I lived through Gold Rainbow. It had a similar setup where the extended childhood backstory was really sweet and heartfelt, then with... More »

We’ve come a long way, and it’s Hong-do’s turn to be the strong one while Yi-seok falls apart.
