Pretty Man: Episode 1
by | November 20, 2013 | 268 Comments
New kid on the block Pretty Man premiered today on KBS, and it was exactly as advertised—a nice dose of bubbly, cute fun. It’s a manhwa adaptation, so you have to go in with the expectation that wacky hijinks and broad characterizations are in store, but I was pleasantly surprised to find that they’re anchored...

Bah, I’m not ready for new dramas to start yet, but here they come anyway. It’s like time has a mind of its own, all inconsiderate-like. KBS’s brand new Wednesday-Thursday drama Pretty Man is getting ready to premiere this week, and has released posters and more stills. The 16-episode romantic comedy stars Jang Geun-seok (Love...

First teaser and more stills for Pretty Man
by | November 8, 2013 | 69 Comments
The first teaser is out for Pretty Man, along with a few more couple stills, and while I still don’t really know what the story is going to be (other than one man going after ten women using his extensive “dating know-how”), the tone looks pretty cute. Light, fluffy, and hopefully zippy. The teaser’s pretty... More »

by | October 29, 2013 | 184 Comments
These photos aren’t from the drama proper, only the pre-show prayer ceremony, but I think they count as our first look at Pretty Man, the upcoming KBS romantic comedy starring Jang Geun-seok (as the titular pretty man), Lee Jang-woo (as the pretty-hearted second lead), IU as the (supposedly) utterly average heroine, and Han Chae-young playing...

by | October 7, 2013 | 32 Comments
With the two leads secured for KBS’s Pretty Man—that would be Jang Geun-seok and Lee Jang-woo—the drama is now in talks to get Han Chae-young (Ad Genius Lee Tae-baek, A Man Called God) onboard as one of the leading ladies, though it’s not the main heroine role which is yet uncast. Which makes sense, since... More »

The ladies of InStyle’s tenth anniversary issue
by | February 26, 2013 | 41 Comments
Well, if In Style wanted to make a statement for their tenth anniversary, I think they managed with their March issue. I’m just not sure what that statement is. Romantic circus fashion? Handbags can be hats? Stars will do anything you tell them to if you call it a concept? To go with the ten-year... More »

Ad Genius Lee Tae-baek: Episode 1
by | February 23, 2013 | 66 Comments
This first episode of Ad Genius Lee Tae-baek, KBS’s newish Monday-Tuesday drama, ended up being a lot more engaging than I thought. The story sets up pretty quickly, and the relationships between the characters are established immediately. No need for waiting on a long buildup! If that is how the series is going to be... More »

Upbeat, colorful teasers for Ad Genius
by | January 29, 2013 | 44 Comments
Teasers are out for KBS’s upcoming Ad Genius Lee Tae-baek, and I have to say that there’s something about that image above that just makes me Aww. It’s a cliche of an image—country bumpkin in awe of the big city—but it’s endearing to see a charming, good-natured sort of hero, isn’t it? Reminds me of... More »

Ad Genius assembles cast for poster shoot
by | January 17, 2013 | 67 Comments
I’m still on the fence about KBS’s new Monday-Tuesday drama Ad Genius Lee Tae-baek, not sure I’m completely onboard the success-story drama about a hard-working country fellow who comes to the big city and makes it, but for now it does have an appealing cast. Here are the main leads in the poster shoots, shot... More »

Ad Genius Lee Tae-baek secures cast
by | January 9, 2013 | 50 Comments
Things are certainly lookin’ up for underdog success story Ad Genius Lee Tae-baek. Jin Gu (26 Years) has confirmed that he’ll play the lead, and Park Ha-sun (High Kick 3) has signed on to co-star. All I can say is, thank goodness she’s doing this instead of Gangnam Style. Han Chae-young (A Man Called God)... More »
