by | July 8, 2014 | 61 Comments
Here’s the first poster and first (non-plagiarized) teaser for It’s Okay, It’s Love, SBS’s next Wednesday-Thursday drama about a mystery novelist and a shrink.

Uhhhhhh, this show knows it’s a melodrama, right? Either the early plot descriptions had it all wrong, or Show’s having an identity crisis, because judging by the random dance-time teasers, you’d have no way of knowing that It’s Okay, It’s Love isn’t a rom-com. It’s actually so jarring I don’t know how to process it... More »

Movie Review: Memento Mori (1999)
by | May 25, 2014 | 9 Comments
There are not many sequels in Korean cinema if you compare it to the endless stream of sequels from Hollywood, but sometimes a rousing success will lead to them. And the enormous success of Whispering Corridors in 1998 led to one of the most prolific series in Korean film, let alone Korean horror, with the... More »

Gong Hyo-jin and Jo In-sung consider Noh Hee-kyung melodrama
by | January 9, 2014 | 106 Comments
Huh, I wouldn’t have pegged Jo In-sung for a second go-around with writer Noh Hee-kyung right away, especially since That Winter, The Wind Blows was his last project. But it looks like a reunion is in the works. He’s being courted to headline her new drama It’s Okay, It’s Love for the coming year alongside... More »

Master’s Sun: Episode 16
by | October 2, 2013 | 203 Comments
We’re almost at the end! Even though I’d never argue that the one-episode extension did this show (or any show) good, I did find myself pleasantly surprised with how the show seems to feel on track with its pacing as we head into the finale. Granted it wasn’t exactly a fast pace and I do... More »
