by | April 2, 2014 | 47 Comments
A love triangle for Triangle–it only seems fitting, doesn’t it? MBC’s upcoming Monday-Tuesday drama has confirmed that Baek Jin-hee will be joining the cast as one of the leads, which means she’ll just take up residence in the timeslot that belongs to her most recent drama, Empress Ki. In Triangle she’ll play a woman who... More »

by | January 30, 2014 | 60 Comments
Song Seung-heon, Lee Mi-yeon, Lee Beom-soo And the bromance lives on. I don’t know if Dr. Jin’s anything is something we want living on, but there’s no denying that Lee Beom-soo (Prime Minister and I) and Song Seung-heon (When a Man Loves) make a great odd (emphasis on odd) couple. They’re being courted to headline... More »

by | August 29, 2013 | 44 Comments
There’s a new rom-com headed to KBS that’s the best of both worlds: it’s short and sweet. The two-episode “situational drama” Anticipate Love will be a drama special-esque miniseries that stars Daniel Choi (School 2013) and pop star BoA in what’s described as a fresh take on contemporary dating issues. I still don’t know what... More »

Im Shi-wan up to star in Song Kang-ho film
by | February 8, 2013 | 20 Comments
Of the latest crop of idol-actors, I’d put Im Shi-wan near the head of the pack, so it’s nice to see him building his resumé and taking on a variety of projects. Aside from his main gig as a pop star with ZE:A, he’s been steadily acting in supporting roles in television (he’s got a... More »

Standby: Episode 87 (Highlight)
by | September 19, 2012 | 32 Comments
A Standby highlight that DOESN’T have anything to do with Ha Suk-jin? Who knew this day would come? This show is totally lagging for me these days, but this episode came along and was so sweet and wistful that I felt sad all over again that the rest of the show wasn’t as solid. Still,... More »

Dramabeans Podcast #13: Standby
by | August 5, 2012 | 51 Comments
Hello, folks! This is a podcast we hadn’t planned, exactly, but ended up recording because that just seemed easier, given how far along we’re in Standby at this point, compared to the last time we covered it. It’s a show that I’ve been watching regularly, and while it’s not rocking my world, there are enough... More »

Standby: Episodes 15-29 (Highlights)
by | May 20, 2012 | 47 Comments
Now that we’re almost 30 episodes into the show, I think Standby has established its tone and approach, which is to say: silly, fluffy, and simple. There isn’t a lot of complexity here and I think the conflicts are pretty basic, and the show tends to draw its characters in broad strokes rather than working... More »
