And there goes my reason for watching. I suppose the good or the bad of it depends on how much you were looking forward to Iron Man, KBS’s fall Wednesday-Thursday drama about a hero who sprouts knives from his body.

New KBS drama Iron Man casts Ji Sung, Shin Se-kyung
by | July 8, 2014 | 80 Comments
Aiee, at first I was excited at the prospect of Ji Sung (Secret) headlining a superhero drama, but then came news that Shin Se-kyung (When a Man Loves) was being courted to play the heroine. I swear I’ve tried, but I have never liked her in anything. For now the upside is that both actors... More »

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 »

Secret: Episode 1
by | October 1, 2013 | 192 Comments
Where does the time go? Secret premiered on KBS this past week to some pretty dismal ratings, which either means that their time slot is still cursed by previous drama Sword and Flower, or that the hype machine wasn’t strong enough. Alternatively, it could be the sense of déjà vu one gets while watching—so far,... More »

Well, here’s the first official poster for KBS’s melodrama Secret, and alls I gotta say is, if you paid somebody anything to make it, you got robbed.

New KBS melodrama Secret prepares to wring tears
by | September 4, 2013 | 75 Comments
It’s kind of strange, but amongst all the time-travelers, aliens, and super-powered folk in dramaland these days, the conventional melodrama is becoming the rarer species.

by | August 6, 2013 | 33 Comments
Upcoming KBS melodrama Secret has confirmed its leads, and finally revealed a bit more of its plot. On the upside, that means Ji Sung and Hwang Jung-eum have signed on to return to dramaland. On the downside, it sounds like another cold revenge drama about falling in love with someone you’re not supposed to fall... More »

KBS’s next Wednesday-Thursday drama has begun casting rounds, and dapper leading man Ji Sung (The Great Seer) is being courted to star. The new series set to follow current sageuk Sword and Flower is called Secret, which is maybe the most generic and true-of-all-dramas title of all time. I can’t get a read on genre,... More »
