Han Ye-seul up to play spirited lawyer in new drama Defendant
by | October 18, 2016 | 28 Comments
Han Ye-seul (Madam Antoine, Birth of a Beauty) has played everything from a quack fortuneteller to an amnesiac chaebol to a North Korean spy, but I’m having a hard time picturing her in a normal job like lawyer or doctor. It looks like she might diverge from her beaten path of bright rom-com heroines though,... More »

Madam Antoine: Episode 1
by | January 26, 2016 | 95 Comments
The last of cable’s new weekend shows is JTBC’s quirky rom-com Madam Antoine, an opposites-attract comedy about a phony fortuneteller and a psychologist whose worlds collide. Though the first episode jumps through some hoops to force our two leads together, they make a pretty entertaining pair, matched point for point in intuition, fast-talking wit, and... More »

We’re a week (and change) out from Madam Antoine’s premiere, so we’re probably winding down with the promo stills and previews as the show prepares for lift-off. By now, we know the premise: Han Ye-seul is the fake fortuneteller whose skills are really rooted in her ability to read people, and Sung Joon is the... More »

Oh this looks light and fun. Maybe that’s obvious, since Madam Antoine’s posters and stills were quirky and cute, but it’s always nice to see the chemistry in action when you’re heading into a rom-com. The new JTBC series stars Han Ye-seul (Birth of a Beauty) as a phony fortuneteller and Sung Joon (High Society)... More »

by | December 21, 2015 | 37 Comments
Posters are out for JTBC’s upcoming drama Madam Antoine, and they do a good job of conveying the colorful, fun vibe of the show that’s highlighting its quirky rom-com bent. It’ll be an opposites-attract romance, pitting a phony fortuneteller (Han Ye-seul) against a logical-minded psychologist (Sung Joon) and letting the sparks (hopefully) fly. In the... More »

First stills from the set of JTBC rom-com Madam Antoine
by | December 14, 2015 | 32 Comments
I don’t know how the re-airing of Padam Padam is doing for JTBC, but I’m definitely more inclined to catch the upcoming Friday-Saturday drama Madam Antoine after the year-end madness is over and I have time to watch lots of dramas again. As weird as a comic love story between a shrink and a quack... More »

Sung Joon considers JTBC’s Madam Antoine
by | October 14, 2015 | 57 Comments
So Sung Joon (High Society) is up to join Han Ye-seul (Birth of a Beauty) in the upcoming JTBC drama Madam Antoine, which strikes me as… an interesting pairing. Maybe I mean odd. Maybe even a little mismatched? The drama is the medical-rom-com series about clinical psychologists that comes from the PD of My Name... More »

And now for SBS’s awards! I thought yesterday’s ceremony over at MBC was a bit lackluster, but maybe that was more about not really loving MBC’s dramas of the past year and not having seen very many of their winners. It’s a different story over at SBS, which had a bunch of shows (and more... More »
