Beautiful Mind: Episode 1
by | June 24, 2016 | 124 Comments
The creators of Beautiful Mind promised that its attention to detail would set this drama apart. After watching the carefully crafted and dynamic first episode, I have to admit they kept their word. Every important character is given nuance and history without ever making the story lag. The plot moves quickly, weaving through complex relationships,... More »

Jang Hyuk is fractured and dangerous in Beautiful Mind

Beautiful Mind pictures! Due to the fact that dramas have maimed me and also because I ran out of things to say about this yet-to-air drama weeks ago, I’m going to invoke my injured/lazy/tired card and just let the pictures do the talking. You guys don’t mind, do you? Just pretend I said a bunch... More »

by | May 26, 2016 | 27 Comments
Honestly, it’s amazing that Beautiful Mind was even able to make a teaser at all, what with the crazy scheduling conflicts that have been plaguing it. After finally securing a leading man in Jang Hyuk (Master of Trade—Inn 2015), KBS’s new medical drama ran into new trouble when lead actress Park So-dam (Because It’s the... More »

I’ll try not to be alarmist about this, but it’s difficult to follow the news of KBS’s upcoming Beautiful Mind and not think it’s going worryingly awry.

Okay, one more red carpet to go and we’re officially done with 2015!

Master of Trade—Inn 2015 to end with 41 episodes
by | December 16, 2015 | 39 Comments
First and foremost, I find it confusing and oddly funny that I can’t tell from this news whether Master of Trade—Inn 2015 is being cut or extended. Most reports call it an extension but the various articles have conflicting counts, which differ again with the news articles previously published in earlier publicity rounds. The KBS... More »
