Ahn Jae-hyun, Gu Hye-sun Theirs isn’t a typical meet-cute story, but at least Gu Hye-sun (32) and Ahn Jae-hyun (29) got more out of Blood than poor reviews. The two confirmed last month that they had quietly been seeing each other since the drama ended, and that they’ll tie the knot in a small family ceremony on May 21. [DongA]... More »

Okay, one more red carpet to go and we’re officially done with 2015!

Bloodsucking gets cutesy for fantasy-medical drama Blood
by | February 10, 2015 | 92 Comments
The trio of posters that KBS’s upcoming Blood just released makes for an interesting mix, because none of them look like they come from the same drama. The first one makes me gag a little (since one of them is not a vampire!), but I see what they were going for with the whole cute-chilly... More »

The doctor’s bloodlust is awakened in KBS’s Blood
by | January 26, 2015 | 101 Comments
Here’s a peek at Ahn Jae-hyun’s vampire smoulder for his new drama Blood, headed to KBS on Mondays and Tuesdays next month. It wouldn’t be a proper vampire drama without some stylish brooding, so the first teaser (short as it is) doesn’t really have any other purpose than to give us a quick taste of... More »

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 »

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 »
