by | February 10, 2015 | 47 Comments
There’s new casting development for SBS’s new supernatural drama Sensory Couple, though sadly not for a leading lady — Kim Ji-won turned out not to be in the running to star after all, which breaks my heart.

by | June 12, 2014 | 37 Comments
Hong Jong-hyun, why you gotta keep doing dramas I don’t want to watch? (On that list: Heading to the Ground, Wild Romance, My Beloved, Her Lovely Heels. I like him so much—much of it is residual nerd-love from Vampire Idol, although White Christmas isn’t a bad one to have on one’s resumé—but wish he did... More »

by | July 9, 2013 | 49 Comments
Despite a pretty expected progression into our final arc, the path to romance is populated with enough meddlers, interlopers, and busybodies to make the trip a fun one.
