2014 Blue Dragon Awards
by | December 17, 2014 | 106 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 »

King of Dramas: Episode 18 (Final)
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

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

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...

King of Dramas: Episode 13

It’s time to run into some regular production woes, which include some above average fare, what with our leads hugging soup barrels and each other to survive a chilly night and a fire burning out of control on set. I’ll take any of these conflicts any day over Empire Productions/World Productions power struggles, so bring... More »

This show takes the Funny Cake, and then covers it in frosting made of pranks, giggles, guffaws, knee-slappers, [insert your laughter of choice], etc. In one word, this episode was hilarious. Hyun-min and Min-ah’s petty competitive spirit soars to new heights, and we can at least say that now we’ve learned how to get back... More »

Premiere day. Finally! It feels like a long time coming, and it’s nice to know our cast feels the same. There are plenty of real feelings mixed with shenanigans in this episode, all of which manage to keep the conflict engaging but light, at least at this point in the game. So far King of... More »

King of Dramas: Episode 10

Production finally casts off, but a plagiarism scandal comes to rock the boat and shake our team’s trust in Go-eun. At least, the less steadfast members of the team. Go-eun has a small but dedicated fan base in her World Productions boys that just makes my heart melt. In fact, all the cute moments of... More »
