Campus meetings and musical instruments in Cantabile Tomorrow
by | September 21, 2014 | 68 Comments
So far I’ve been satisfied with the casting behind Cantabile Tomorrow, KBS’s remake of Japanese drama/anime/manga Nodame Cantabile, and now that we’re starting to see stills of the cast members in character, I continue to be cautiously optimistic.

by | August 1, 2014 | 50 Comments
Aside from that blip that we shall not speak of, I’m feeling pretty good about the casting for the Nodame Cantabile remake, which is tapping rising actor Go Kyung-pyo to play the Mine character. (They are reportedly in final negotiations.) Ha, this should be great. The drama had taken on the working title Cantabile Romance... More »

Cha Seung-won’s tortured inner life in High Heel
by | May 31, 2014 | 63 Comments
When I first heard about the movie High Heel (also called Man on High Heels), in which Cha Seung-won teams with director Jang Jin of all those heartwarming funny feel-good movies (and Saturday Night Live Korea), playing a cop who likes to dress up in women’s clothing, I was expecting funny. Upbeat. Poignant and humorous.... More »

Here’s a peek at the summer horror flick Scary Story 2, or what I like to call Shut Up And Kick the Flower Boy Next Door at Christmas. It’s a six-way dramaland reunionpalooza for White Christmas boys Sung Joon and Lee Soo-hyuk, Flower Boy Next Door’s adorable webtoon artist/editor couple Go Kyung-pyo and Kim Seul-gi,... More »

Up-and-comers in Scary Story 2
by | March 8, 2013 | 51 Comments
All right, there’s a new horror flick out there called Scary Story 2, and for any other reason it would sound forgettable and bland… except for its cast, which is chock-full of promising up-and-comers. First off we have Sung Joon (Can We Get Married, Shut Up: Flower Boy Band, White Christmas), whom I’d wager on... More »

by | November 15, 2012 | 70 Comments
Aw, the cast just gets cuter. Go Kyung-pyo has come onboard tvN’s Flower Boy Next Door, which makes me happy since I love him. Go Kyung-pyo has really only been active in the industry for about a year—he debuted in 2010 but the majority of titles on his resumé come from 2012—but despite the newness... More »

Dramabeans Podcast #13: Standby
by | August 5, 2012 | 51 Comments
Hello, folks! This is a podcast we hadn’t planned, exactly, but ended up recording because that just seemed easier, given how far along we’re in Standby at this point, compared to the last time we covered it. It’s a show that I’ve been watching regularly, and while it’s not rocking my world, there are enough... More »

Standby: Episodes 15-29 (Highlights)
by | May 20, 2012 | 47 Comments
Now that we’re almost 30 episodes into the show, I think Standby has established its tone and approach, which is to say: silly, fluffy, and simple. There isn’t a lot of complexity here and I think the conflicts are pretty basic, and the show tends to draw its characters in broad strokes rather than working... More »
