KBS secret agent thriller Spy rounds out cast
by | November 28, 2014 | 129 Comments
Jaejoong, Go Sung-hee You know, I really wish this drama had picked a different title — for a drama about spies, it’s a little lacking in covert slickness. KBS’s new Friday night drama Spy has secured its leading cast, and plans to enter production shortly. Idol actor Kim Jaejoong (Triangle) will be headlining as expected,... More »

Jaejoong eyes KBS Friday night drama Spy
by | November 24, 2014 | 48 Comments
There was a rumor that KBS was going to keep scheduling dramas in the primetime slot on Friday nights, which seems like an interesting gamble since its current teen drama High School Love On is struggling to build an audience on its erratic (and frequently preempted) once-a-week schedule. But mostly I blame tvN for turning... More »

2014 Korea Drama Awards
by | October 1, 2014 | 189 Comments
The Korea Drama Awards (part of the two-week Korea Drama Festival that kicked off today) isn’t one of the bigger award ceremonies around, but being that it’s drama-focused and inclusive of both broadcast and cable programs, it’s worth a look—even if the winners list does seem rather scattershot. The awards ceremony was held in the... More »

Triangle: Episode 26 (Final)
by | July 31, 2014 | 95 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 »

Triangle: Episode 19
by | July 8, 2014 | 65 Comments
For an episode following a rather big revelation, we’re rewarded with more planning and scheming in this hour. To Young-dal’s credit, it’s a pretty smart plan because it requires knowing what makes the other person tick and what pressure points will evoke the kind of reaction our hero wants. It also requires a lot of... More »
