SBS’s weekend drama Birth of a Beauty is ramping up its casting process with Han Ye-seul (Myung-wol the Spy) and Jung Kyeo-woon (God’s Gift – 14 Days) surfacing as the latest names in contention for the leads (which I suppose indicates that Joo Sang-wook may be out of the running. Sad! I like Jung Kyeo-woon... More »

Movie Review: Penny-Pinching Romance

Ask, and ye shall receive. Actually, movie reviews are a feature girlfriday and I have wanted to contribute to for ages, but haven’t been able to get around to with the craziness of drama-recapping. I’m always excited to write about movies before they release, but strangely, once they do it’s like they drop off my... More »

Myung-wol the Spy: Episode 18 (Final)
by | September 6, 2011 | 221 Comments
Oh, Myung-wol. It saddens me to think of the drama you could’ve been, when you were at the height of funny. You were quirky and offbeat and something new, and the possibilities were endless. But you caved to some of the laziest writing and directing known to man, and worst of all, you lost your... More »

Al…most…there… One more episode, and we can bid goodbye to this drama, which has seen its share of ups and downs. Maybe more downs than ups. Okay, lots more downs.

Myung-wol the Spy: Episode 16

We FINALLY get to the crux of the spy vs. love dilemma, for all the characters involved. I really wish it didn’t take us fifteen episodes to get to this point, but we finally have them – the guns, the ultimatums, the lives on the line, and the hero actually does something… heroic. I know!... More »
