Cruel Palace: An Introduction
by | May 1, 2013 | 102 Comments
With traditional sageuk come certain preconceptions, since the images that normally pop into our collective heads probably include (1) lots of bearded monologuing, (2) a very long episode count, (3) all the nail-biting, edge-of-your-seat-thrills you’d expect from PBS’ Masterpiece Theatre, and (4) that this is your mom’s drama. At least, that’s what I always thought... More »

It’s Okay, Daddy’s Girl: Episode 1
by | November 25, 2010 | 45 Comments
It seems to me that SBS’s newly unveiled Monday-Tuesday drama It’s Okay, Daddy’s Girl (replacing Dr. Champ) really needs two episodes before forming a full opinion, but because of recent pre-emptions, we only got one this week. I figured I might as well weigh in with thoughts on the premiere, although I’m still waiting to... More »

Jeon Tae-soo has just come off his stint on Sungkyunkwan Scandal as resident eyeball-popping, deathbeam-glaring villain, Ha In-soo, and before he transitions into his next role, he decided to stop on by High Cut for what can only be described as…a strange idea, gone stranger.

Now that we know Moon Chae-won will head the upcoming SBS drama It’s Okay, Daddy’s Girl, it’s time to turn our attention to the boys. All are relative newbies to the acting sphere, two of them coming from the idol-pop-star world (gulp), but let’s hope they surprise us with hitherto-untapped acting talent. Daddy’s Girl features...

You may currently know these two actors, Jeon Tae-soo and Yoon Seung-ah, better by their characters’ names in their current dramas — which would be the devious school president Ha In-soo of Sungkyunkwan Scandal and Ha-ni’s best friend Dokko Min-ah of Playful Kiss.
