Jung Jae-young, Han Ji-min in opposites-attract romantic comedy
by | May 5, 2013 | 20 Comments
Newly announced romantic comedy Plan Man sounds pretty awkward as a movie title, but it does offer an amusingly literal conflict when the hero — an uptight, planning-obsessed germophobe — gets his world shaken up by (who else?) a heroine who lives her life planlessly. Aw, the ol’ opposites-attract number, always good for a rom-com... More »

Rooftop Prince: Episode 19
by | May 23, 2012 | 160 Comments
It’s a surprisingly moving episode, one that I didn’t expect given the dumbness of last week. But when you take away the tired corporate plots, resolve the villain conflict, and remove them from the picture, what’s left?
