If I Could Turn Back Time [Year in Review, Part 4]
by | December 21, 2012 | 155 Comments
My first year-end review! I was so excited for this opportunity that I decided to watch as many dramas as I could in preparation this year, and all but forced myself to doggedly stick with obvious train wrecks because I figured, “Hey, at least it’ll give me something to write about.” If I learned anything,...

Fashion King: Episode 2
by | March 22, 2012 | 97 Comments
We’ve got questionably-foreign gangsters, immigrant smuggling, mafia-escaping escapades, country-wide hitchhiking, famous designer ex-girlfriends, secretly connected pasts, and eccentric roommate hijinks all in one hour. Whether all those things work toward telling a coherent tale is up to you, but if there’s one thing this show has taught me, it’s that most problems can be solved... More »

Fashion King: Episode 1

We’ve got a busy week ahead, with Fashion King starting us off over on SBS. It’s got a fresh-faced cast with lots of promise going in its favor, even if it seems a little tonally stunted. It’s also got a nice side of underdog potential just brimming below the surface, so now it’ll be up... More »

Fashion King releases character promo shots

Well, it’s definitely going for sleek, that’s for sure. Upcoming drama Fashion King may be a story about underdogs, but you wouldn’t know from the promos. Based on these shots, I’d guess it was a Gossip Girl-esque soapfest about privileged, angsty teens and their saucy problems. The first one reads: “Running towards tomorrow and the... More »

Fashion King starts filming with Yoo Ah-in

SBS’s upcoming drama Fashion King has begun shooting, and here are some cuts from the recent shoot. Could Yoo Ah-in be any cuter? I love his deer-in-headlights look here as he dangles from a third-story window, 10 meters above the ground. The scene called for some wire action work, and went through approximately twenty takes...

Fashion King holds its first script rehearsal
by | December 27, 2011 | 77 Comments
I sincerely hope everybody’s in character at this Fashion King script reading, because man, is that a collection of pissy faces or what? Then again, I’m not sure I want to watch a drama populated by characters wearing pissy faces, even if we’ve got Yoo Ah-in (Sungkyunkwan Scandal) leading the charge. Let’s just hope the... More »
