2014 Busan International Film Festival’s opening red carpet
by | October 2, 2014 | 59 Comments
It’s red carpet season! I both love and hate awards/festival season (fall-winter, mostly) because on one hand, it’s never a burden to look at scores of beautiful people strutting a formal event looking (mostly) their best, but on the other, these posts can be massive and a pain to compile. But let our pain be... More »

Mystery Drama Theater 3000: Boys Before Flowers
by | April 12, 2013 | 182 Comments
In case you missed our first attempt at Mystery Drama Theater 3000, we’re bringing the concept back, only this time we’ve picked a less obscure show. For our first outing we picked a show that was less-watched because we thought it would be nice to weigh in on something we hadn’t previously talked about. However,... More »

8th Jecheon International Music & Film Festival
by | August 9, 2012 | 68 Comments
It’s been four years (eep!) since the last time I wrote about Jecheon International Music & Film Festival, mostly because it’s not the most exciting of events. But the inclusion of Yoon Eun-hye into any red carpet automatically kicks it up a notch on the scale of interesting, no? The festival’s now in its 8th... More »

I guess today is just going to be photo-overload day. Take a look at a massive collection of stills from Take Care of Us, Captain, SBS’s new entry in the Wednesday-Thursday race. It’s up against two promising other new entries — The Moon That Embraces The Sun and Wild Romance — so all eyes will... More »

The Musical: Episode 15 (Final)
by | December 30, 2011 | 103 Comments
Wow. I thought I was disappointed with the ending in I Am Legend. This ending tops that on my “disappointment list.” The Musical started out so strongly, and was interesting for the first half. But it flagged, and it was evident in the writing, the editing, and even the acting. I think Park Ki Woong... More »

Take Care of Us, Captain releases its first poster
by | December 29, 2011 | 61 Comments
Here’s the first poster for upcoming airport drama Take Care of Us, Captain, starring Ji Jin-hee as a top airline pilot and Gu Hye-sun as his rookie co-pilot. It’s being described as “an airline humanism drama,” which I suppose sounds slightly less random and weird in Korean. Slightly. It’s a pretty poster — I like... More »

The Musical: Episode 14

Well now, looks like this is going to be the second to the last episode for The Musical. Word has it that the series may end at 15 due to the poor ratings. Honestly, I can’t be that surprised – it’s at a terrible broadcast hour, and the story has been flagging in the past... More »

The Musical: Episode 13
by | December 16, 2011 | 39 Comments
Not quite the “solid episode” I was looking for, but we finally did move forward with Eun Bi and Jae Hee. I started off thinking this episode (and the rest of the series) was going to be about Yoo Jin because they focused on him and his family so much. So thank goodness we turned... More »

The Musical: Episode 12
by | December 7, 2011 | 51 Comments
We’re back! Again. One of the benefits of having a hiatus is that the first ten minutes of the episode is spent on recapping the past 11 episodes. (Less for me to write!) One of the downsides of having a hiatus is that you really need those first ten minutes of recap. (Grr.) However, some... More »
