by | August 26, 2015 | 77 Comments
Okay, fine, ONE kiss, not multiples. Still, I’ll take it. (Warning: There is a video that auto-plays in this post. Sorry! It’s the only one MBC has released that allows us to watch the first teaser for She Was Pretty, sadly.) The teaser gives us a cute glimpse into the rom-com’s leads and their chemistry,... More »

Siwon considers MBC rom-com She Was Pretty
by | July 27, 2015 | 39 Comments
The main love square for MBC’s new romantic comedy She Was Pretty is almost complete: Choi Siwon (King of Dramas) is being courted to join the cast, which currently includes Kill Me, Heal Me twins Hwang Jung-eum and Park Seo-joon, and Go Jun-hee (Yawang). I’m a little surprised that Siwon is taking on a supporting... More »

Choi Siwon cameos as inept thief for Masked Prosecutor
by | May 14, 2015 | 35 Comments
Ahhhhhaha, I want this, and I want this now. As far as I’m concerned, Choi Siwon should only play idiots and goofballs, because he cracks me up so. Plus, he has a pretty good sense of humor and can have fun poking fun at himself, whether it’s playing a terrible actor (Oh My Lady) or... More »

2014 Blue Dragon Awards
by | December 17, 2014 | 104 Comments
As one of the biggest awards ceremonies in the industry, the 35th Blue Dragon Awards turned out a number of stars and covered a pretty good spread of titles in its winners list—a few films took home multiple trophies, but there wasn’t a single movie sweeping every category. It was nice to see a fair... More »

Choi Siwon headlines Chinese version of Heirs
by | February 3, 2014 | 117 Comments
I suppose that Heirs, despite being bereft of narrative movement and limp of content, did somehow manage to turn itself into a pop-culture phenomenon, and now there is apparently going to be a Chinese drama version (titled 億萬繼承, which basically means Heirs), and it will star Choi Siwon (King of Dramas). For whatever reason this... More »

by | January 9, 2013 | 238 Comments
Everything gets tied into a neat bow as our characters go through the wringer trying to prevent a broadcasting accident. What goes around comes around, it seems, and Anthony is made to choose between saving himself or saving his drama. For anyone who knows Anthony, the decision he makes shouldn’t come as a surprise. Last... More »

King of Dramas: Episode 17
by | January 4, 2013 | 171 Comments
There’s only one episode this week before next week’s finale, as our drama within a drama tackles a last-minute extension and live shooting, which should all sound very familiar. That’s all stuff I’d like to see, but we instead get taken for a ride as Anthony goes the noble you-know-what route with our World Boys... More »

King of Dramas: Episode 16
by | December 30, 2012 | 191 Comments
There’s plenty of cute and winsome moments for our developing love story, and a healthy dose of some eye-opening drama not related to our drama-within-a-drama to go with it. Hyun-min finally realizes that he might just be awful at what he does while Anthony proves to be awesome at what he does. Come to think... More »

King of Dramas: Episode 15
by | December 29, 2012 | 195 Comments
It’s like there’s a little extra magic in this episode, though I’m not quite sure if that’s due to the floodgate of feelings becoming more or less open, or whether this cast’s sparkling chemistry has just gotten… More sparkly? Is that a thing? I can say my love for Anthony took another exponential leap, because... More »

King of Dramas: Episode 14
by | December 23, 2012 | 203 Comments
This show, I tell you. It’s just so sweet, warm, and full of feel-good moments and heart. Not to mention copious amount of laughter, since Hyun-min encounters a bad case of foot-in-mouth that lands him in hot water with his girlfriend and his co-star, which in turn lands him in the middle of a press...
