Office grunts clock in at Misaeng’s press conference
by | October 6, 2014 | 22 Comments
The cast and crew of the upcoming tvN drama Misaeng (Incomplete Life) gathered for a press conference on Monday, October 6 — it seems fitting that a show about office grunts should punch in on a Monday, doesn’t it? The drama, an adaptation of a webtoon with a mania following, is about the ins and... More »

Misaeng’s posters bring webtoon characters to life
by | October 2, 2014 | 24 Comments
Here’s a set of drama posters you don’t see every day. The new tvN workplace drama Misaeng (Incomplete Life) is an adaptation of a beloved webtoon with a huge following, and the show commissioned the original creator (writer and artist) Yoon Tae-ho to design the drama’s posters. Each of the main actors is featured in... More »

Counting down to the weekend with Misaeng
by | September 29, 2014 | 29 Comments
The teasers for Misaeng continue to be relatably funny, as you can see in two more previews featuring two of its leads, Im Shi-wan and Kang So-ra. The story depicts the lives of ordinary office workers encountering everyday conflicts and foibles, and the original Misaeng manhwa was a hit with twenty- and thirtysomething office workers...

I’m really looking forward to Misaeng (Incomplete Life), the next project from PD Kim Won-seok (Monstar, Sungkyunkwan Scandal) and writer Jung Yoon-jung (Monstar, Arang and the Magistrate) headed to tvN next month. It’s the highly-anticipated drama adaptation of a hit webtoon that has a mania following in Korea for its realistic and relatable portrayal of... More »

Triangle: Episode 26 (Final)
by | July 31, 2014 | 94 Comments
Here lies what was once a promising show, though it may be hard to remember the good times when Triangle spent the last few weeks with one foot already in the grave. As far as finales go, it’s by and large not the worst you’ll ever see, and I imagine there might even be a... More »

Triangle: Episode 25
by | July 29, 2014 | 15 Comments
We’re finally in the finale week for Triangle, where even more death threats are issued, more conversations are played out from beginning to end, and more plans are set into motion. Getting through to youngest brother Yang-ha proves to be more difficult than either Young-dal or Dong-soo expected, but perhaps they can make some kind... More »

Triangle: Episode 24
by | July 24, 2014 | 40 Comments
More threats are issued, more theoretical wars are waged, and more scenes are devoted to following not-so-vital pieces of information around than you would’ve ever thought possible. I honestly wish I had better news as we head toward finale week, but I’ve actually become increasingly convinced that Triangle is less about the reunion of its... More »

Triangle: Episode 23
by | July 22, 2014 | 33 Comments
That’s a helluva pissed off expression if I’ve ever seen one. As more baddies are brought to light and more people on Young-dal’s side are threatened, Young-dal finds it increasingly harder to keep his anger in check. Now if you’re thinking that tidbit would prompt the evil chaebols to get hustlin’ on their ever-present-but-not-really-urgent threat... More »

Triangle: Episode 22
by | July 17, 2014 | 20 Comments
We’ve officially circled back to plotting and planning with minimal follow-through, which is its own kind of letdown for anyone weathering the meandering pace in the hopes that the emotional payoffs, however sparse, will make it all worthwhile. While this hour isn’t bereft of important brotherly connections, it certainly takes its sweet time exploring them,... More »

Triangle: Episode 21
by | July 15, 2014 | 41 Comments
Now that two brothers know the truth, it’s up to them (well, one of them) to protect their youngest from walking into his own destruction. Both revenge and estranged relationships become far more difficult when they realize that bringing down their enemy could potentially take their brother down with them. There are more little moments... More »

Triangle: Episode 20
by | July 11, 2014 | 43 Comments
For a show that certainly knows how to take things slow and easy sometimes, it still knows how to deliver an hour of small victories, heartwarming teamwork, and shattering reveals. Most of all, I appreciate how Triangle surprises us with character moments which subvert conventional drama tropes while also remembering that episodic payoffs are important.... More »
