Hello Monster confirms leads and gets a new title
by | April 24, 2015 | 76 Comments
I Remember You is the new title for the drama formerly known as Hello Monster, which is a change I’m not too excited about, since at least Hello Monster was distinctive. Generic is what I think of when I hear I Remember You, which sounds more like an amnesia melo than an upbeat thriller about... More »

Will Hello Monster finally find its profiler hero in Seo In-gook?
by | April 14, 2015 | 90 Comments
Why can’t a drama hang on to a leading actor these days? Between Hello Monster and Scholar Who Walks the Night (and a half-dozen other spring/summer dramas), I can hardly keep a drama cast straight anymore because it’ll just change on me tomorrow. The last we heard, KBS’s new crime-thriller-meets-rom-com Hello Monster was courting Lee... More »

Red carpet time! The year-end station awards are upon us, and MBC is up first with their Drama Awards for 2014. MBC isn’t historically known for making a whole lot of sense when it comes to how they hand out trophies at the end of the year, though to be fair, they’re not the only... More »

Mr. Back’s presto abs and bathtub full of gold
by | November 4, 2014 | 57 Comments
I’m not entirely sure that this drama has thought through anything beyond its logline — grandpa becomes young again — but at least Shin Ha-kyun (All About My Romance) seems to be enjoying the hell out of playing up the transformation. MBC’s newest Wednesday-Thursday drama Mr. Back premieres tomorrow, and the highlight reel teases some... More »

Grandpa Shin Ha-kyun goes back to his youth in Mr. Back
by | October 23, 2014 | 25 Comments
So it turns out that the title of MBC’s new Wednesday-Thursday drama really IS Mr. Back (we’ve been calling it Mr. Baek until now). I guess I should’ve known the punny title would win out — it is dramaland, after all. The fantasy romantic comedy stars Shin Ha-kyun (All About My Romance) as a 70-year-old... More »

Fated To Love You: Episode 20 (Final)
by | September 6, 2014 | 316 Comments
The day we dreaded since we first fell in love is finally upon us, which means that it’s time to say goodbye to the zany and whimsical side of Fated To Love You, while conveniently shelving the angsty side somewhere easily forgotten. At least this isn’t one of those endings that forgets to be an... More »
