Joo-won offered lead in Korean remake of Nodame Cantabile
by | February 25, 2014 | 271 Comments
Ooh, interesting. Dramaland is pursuing a Korean remake of hit Japanese drama (and manga and anime) Nodame Cantabile, and while it’s only in the very early stages, already the property has generated a lot of buzz about potential casting. The first big name to be floated as the clumsy but lovable heroine was IU, but... More »

2013 KBS Drama Awards
by | December 31, 2013 | 159 Comments
Here’s the last of this year’s drama awards over at KBS, where God of the Workplace, Good Doctor, and Secret were the big winners of the evening. Unsurprisingly, Kim Hye-soo took home the Daesang for her performance in God of the Workplace. She’s fabulous; her outfit, not so much. Just wait for it. Joo-won took... More »

Pretty Man: Episode 1
by | November 20, 2013 | 268 Comments
New kid on the block Pretty Man premiered today on KBS, and it was exactly as advertised—a nice dose of bubbly, cute fun. It’s a manhwa adaptation, so you have to go in with the expectation that wacky hijinks and broad characterizations are in store, but I was pleasantly surprised to find that they’re anchored...

Bah, I’m not ready for new dramas to start yet, but here they come anyway. It’s like time has a mind of its own, all inconsiderate-like. KBS’s brand new Wednesday-Thursday drama Pretty Man is getting ready to premiere this week, and has released posters and more stills. The 16-episode romantic comedy stars Jang Geun-seok (Love...

First teaser and more stills for Pretty Man
by | November 8, 2013 | 69 Comments
The first teaser is out for Pretty Man, along with a few more couple stills, and while I still don’t really know what the story is going to be (other than one man going after ten women using his extensive “dating know-how”), the tone looks pretty cute. Light, fluffy, and hopefully zippy. The teaser’s pretty... More »

Poster shoots and stills for Pretty Man
by | November 1, 2013 | 81 Comments
More photos from Pretty Man, this time from the drama proper as well as its poster shoots. I must say, while the story still seems riddled with question marks, the pictures do look super cute, featuring our lead couple played by Jang Geun-seok and IU. (I don’t understand in what universe she could be considered... More »

First look at Pretty Man’s cast at drama prayer ceremony
by | October 29, 2013 | 184 Comments
These photos aren’t from the drama proper, only the pre-show prayer ceremony, but I think they count as our first look at Pretty Man, the upcoming KBS romantic comedy starring Jang Geun-seok (as the titular pretty man), Lee Jang-woo (as the pretty-hearted second lead), IU as the (supposedly) utterly average heroine, and Han Chae-young playing...

IU to pine after Jang Geun-seok in Pretty Man
by | October 21, 2013 | 109 Comments
Confirmations are in for singer-actress IU, who’s signing on to star in KBS’s new Wednesday-Thursday drama Pretty Man just weeks after wrapping her long weekender You’re the Best, Lee Soon-shin. It’s an unfortunate title, given that Lee Soon-shin was not the best, but IU was quite lovable in the headlining role anyway, despite the head-scratchy... More »

IU up for Pretty Man?
by | October 12, 2013 | 137 Comments
How strange to bury such news on the weekend, but IU is reportedly considering taking on KBS’s Pretty Man as her next drama project. Her reps have confirmed that she has received the offer, though she has yet to accept. I thought IU was going to focus on her singing duties next with promotional activities... More »

You’re the Best, Lee Soon-shin: Episodes 49-50 (Final)
by | August 25, 2013 | 100 Comments
I have good news: The ending of You’re the Best, Lee Soon-shin is legitimately solid. Who would’ve expected that, especially with the trajectory we were on? Sure, we had some very neatly tied ends, but by and large I felt we got our characters fitting, satisfying end notes. There was a cathartic feeling to watching... More »

You’re the Best, Lee Soon-shin: Episodes 47-48 [Open Thread]
by | August 18, 2013 | 130 Comments
I wish I had better news for you all, but the best I can offer is: This show ends in a week, so at least the next two episodes should be happy and cute? I think? I hope? We’re dealing with mostly fallout in these two episodes as everyone finds out everything about everyone and... More »
