Heirs writer jumps broadcasters with new drama Descended From the Sun
by | October 27, 2014 | 81 Comments
The next project for star writer Kim Eun-sook is titled Descended From the Sun, which we heard about earlier this year when it was first being planned. Now the drama is in talks to bring onboard director Lee Eung-bok, which would give us the writer for Heirs teaming with the PD of Secret. The drama... More »

Heirs’ hitmaker writer to return with blockbuster human melo
by | February 18, 2014 | 74 Comments
The star writer of Secret Garden, A Gentleman’s Dignity, and Heirs will be back with a new “human melodrama” for SBS, which means SBS is probably already counting their chickens (or moneys) since writer Kim Eun-sook is pretty much a sure thing for them in terms of ratings. Love or hate her dramas, they still... More »

Choi Siwon headlines Chinese version of Heirs
by | February 3, 2014 | 117 Comments
I suppose that Heirs, despite being bereft of narrative movement and limp of content, did somehow manage to turn itself into a pop-culture phenomenon, and now there is apparently going to be a Chinese drama version (titled 億萬繼承, which basically means Heirs), and it will star Choi Siwon (King of Dramas). For whatever reason this... More »

Santa presents: Things I Learned from Dramaland
by | December 25, 2013 | 90 Comments
The one good thing about working one day a year and outsourcing most of your menial labor to elves is that it gives you plenty of time to watch dramas. This year I discovered that I had watched them all wrong before, because when you watch with an open mind, you can gain valuable life... More »

by | December 23, 2013 | 273 Comments
Here are your winners for 2013! It was an interesting year in dramaland, with a wide array of genres to choose from all year long.

Gonna find out who’s naughty or nice [Year In Review, Part 4]
by | December 20, 2013 | 132 Comments
It’s that time of year, for Show to trade in all its good deeds and gold stars for a spot on Santa’s list. Have you been naughty, nice, or something in between? If there’s any constant in dramaland, it’s that you can never underestimate the sneak-attack of a naughty finale, or the surprise resilience of... More »

A Year in Compliment Sandwiches [Year In Review, Part 3]
by | December 16, 2013 | 196 Comments
It’s been an interesting year for the world of dramas, hasn’t it? Usually any given year will at least give us that one epic drama we can all rally around like a big ol’ communal campfire, allowing us to share s’mores of our feels filled with chocolate (abs) and, okay, maybe this analogy is getting...

I Watched for You [Year In Review, Part 2]
by | December 13, 2013 | 214 Comments
Given the sheer volume of shows that dramaland puts out every year, I can think of plenty of reasons as to why I dropped a title or two from my watching list in 2013. And yet, I also realized that there almost always happened to be something or someone behind why I watch the ones... More »

Heirs: Episode 20 (Final)
by | December 12, 2013 | 455 Comments
The end is here. Not that it’s a surprise, but the Heirs finale doesn’t step outside its prescribed frame for even a second, so mostly what we get is an hour to wrap everything up neatly and send our characters on their way. Truthfully it wasn’t really a drama that had twenty episodes of story... More »

Heirs: Episode 19
by | December 11, 2013 | 202 Comments
Finale week means we’re wrapping up loose ends, and one nice side effect is that angst steps aside and lets cuteness and humor a moment in the spotlight. I won’t say it didn’t take forever and a day (or that everything makes the most sense, plotwise), but neither am I about to look a gift... More »
