by | February 16, 2014 | 24 Comments
Sweeping both the domestic box office as well as last year’s biggest awards ceremonies, espionage thriller The Berlin File edged out fellow spy film Covertly, Grandly to take its place as the fifth highest grossing film of 2013 behind films like The Face Reader and Miracle In Cell No. 7, which have been on my...

MBC greenlights Dae Jang Geum 2, puts brakes on Unprecedented
by | January 7, 2014 | 31 Comments
MBC is really, really not giving up on this Dae Jang Geum 2 idea, and is in the thick of plans (again) to bring it about (again). But at least things are shaping up more plausibly this time, because Dae Jang Geum 2 has gotten on the broadcast schedule for this fall, according to a... More »

Cha Seung-won considers drama return in Unprecedented
by | December 27, 2013 | 46 Comments
More Cha Seung-won in dramaland is always a good thing, but it’s particularly worth noting when the parties involved are as high-profile and hit-making as the ones for Unprecedented, a political sageuk from the Tree With Deep Roots writers and Queen Seon-deok director. Cha is not confirmed, just considering, but I’d love to see him... More »

Go Soo and Park Shin-hye courted for historical film
by | October 23, 2013 | 117 Comments
There’s a new sageuk in the works that’s gaining some attention even in its early stages of pre-production for a number of reasons: it’s the latest film being produced by Bidangil, or Silk Road Pictures, of A Werewolf Boy and The Chaser (the terrifying Ha Jung-woo movie, not the drama), and it’s courting Go Soo...

Lee Je-hoon and Han Seok-kyu in Paparotti
by | February 12, 2013 | 64 Comments
This movie looks hilarious and really really cute. Another of Lee Je-hoon’s shot-pre-army movies is due out, and thankfully this time it’s lighter fare. It’s his heartwarming comedy with Han Seok-kyu called Paparotti (named for his country bumpkin character’s mispronunciation of Pavarotti), where he plays a gangster who dreams of becoming a classical singer. Because... More »

Tree With Deep Roots: Episode 24 (Final)
by | December 24, 2011 | 99 Comments
All told, a pretty epic finale. Okay, really epic. Was it wholly satisfying? No, not completely. Was it filled with operatic flair, covered in blood, grandiose in scale, and riveting from the first charged moment until the very last? Of course. This is Tree With Deep Roots we’re talking about. At times tragic, at times... More »

Tree With Deep Roots: Episode 23
by | December 22, 2011 | 35 Comments
How are our heroes going to get out of this one? That’s a fun question to have any show pose to us, and it’s one that Tree has posed quite well. How will they defeat that which is undefeatable? How will they save the girl? How will they save the King? How will they save... More »
