by | March 22, 2017 | 25 Comments
I love the second teaser released by Mystery Queen—sure, it’s not as eccentric as the first, but as a huge fan of Modern Family and Parks And Rec, I enjoyed the mockumentary feel as both main characters complained about each other to the cameraman. The plot of the upcoming KBS drama is about mysteryholic ajumma... More »

New stills for upcoming ajumma detective drama Mystery Queen have been released. All the cuts of the main character, played by Choi Kang-hee (Dazzling Temptation), look quirky and colorful, while those of her co-star Kwon Sang-woo (Temptation) seem murky and dark.

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

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.
