Upcoming cross-genre movie Life-Risking Romance mixes romantic-comedy with mystery-thriller, so the familiar love triangle will be accompanied by a hefty dose of whodunit.

Master–God of Noodle: Episode 1
by | May 1, 2016 | 55 Comments
It’s official: Noodles aren’t a joke anymore as Master–God of Noodle opens with a dark and suspenseful first episode — everything the title isn’t. You wouldn’t think a mere noodle could evoke so much emotion, but when it becomes a stand-in for childhood, for innocence lost and parents murdered, it’s serious business indeed. Note: This...

Finally, some noodles for the Noodle God! Yes, technically I might have caught a glimpse of noodle in the previous teasers, but only just barely, and at least in this latest teaser we get noodles being made, being eaten, and being the cause of revenge. The teaser begins with our hero (Chun Jung-myung) telling us... More »

Friends, noodles, and revenge in Master–God of Noodle’s teasers
by | April 18, 2016 | 64 Comments
The more promos and teasers I see for KBS’s Master–God of Noodle (it kills me that the official title uses Noodle instead of Noodles—like there exists one ultimate noodle to rule over), the more I feel like there’s a disconnect between drama and title. One is going for dark and intense, while the other… well,... More »

Master: God of Noodles goes comic book style for first teaser
by | March 28, 2016 | 21 Comments
The first teaser is out for KBS’s Master: God of Noodles, and there’s not even a single noodle in it! Mostly it’s about revenge, featuring Chun Jung-myung as the hero who loses everything and comes back for payback. Mastering noodle-making is a part of that comeback, but is apparently far from his main purpose. (I... More »

And the castings keep rolling in for the redundantly titled Master: God of Noodles, the upcoming KBS melodrama adapted from a manhwa that combines noodle-making with revenge.

by | March 9, 2016 | 51 Comments
Another title change? Make up your minds, KBS! The drama formerly known as Time of the Beast, which was previously known as God of Noodles, has re-embraced its old title and tacked on a prefix and is now going by Master: God of Noodles. Why they couldn’t choose one and just call him a Master... More »

Time of the Beast: Lee Je-hoon out, Chun Jung-myung in
by | March 4, 2016 | 29 Comments
It’s not exactly a one-to-one trade, but there aren’t many (or any?) actors you could trade for Lee Je-hoon and still leave me happy. The actor ultimately turned down the offer to headline the KBS revenge drama Time of the Beast, formerly known as God of Noodles, and now Chun Jung-myung (Heart to Heart) is... More »

Kim So-yeon, Kwak Shi-yang I stopped watching season 4 of We Got Married when one of my favorite couples left (SoRim forever!), but I’m going to have to start tuning in again because I adore this pairing already — Kim So-yeon (Falling for Innocence) and Kwak Shi-yang (Oh My Ghostess) are the newest couple to get hitched on the show....

Heart to Heart: Episode 16 (Final)
by | March 10, 2015 | 72 Comments
It’s a well-rounded ending for Heart to Heart, and if everyone may not get what they want, they definitely get what they deserve. Hong-do has to decide if she can love Yi-seok without blaming him for his family’s sins, while he can only sit and wait. Patience isn’t the poor man’s strong suit, but if... More »
