Boy-crazy ghostess runs amok in tvN’s Oh My Ghostess
by | June 22, 2015 | 48 Comments
Muahaha, Kim Seul-gi’s ghostess character definitely comes out the winner in this deal: She gets to possess Park Bo-young’s body, run around town living out every single one of her wildest boy-crazy wishes, and doesn’t have to deal with any of the consequences afterward. There’s gotta be a catch, right? Oh right, I guess the... More »

The ghost-possession begins in tvN’s Oh My Ghostess
by | June 4, 2015 | 38 Comments
Finally, some stills from Oh My Ghostess, plus a video clip from the show’s script reading. Normally the script readings are pretty dry affairs and we don’t get to see much of them, but this one particularly piques my interest because I’m relieved to see that lead actress Park Bo-young has a comic side, and...

I always like seeing talented newcomers getting more work, so it’s good to hear that Kwak Shi-yang, who came on the scene out of nowhere to take a lead in Mnet’s Persevere, Gu Hae-ra, is joining Oh My Ghostess on tvN, which is the new series from the High School King of Savvy producers.

Kim Seul-gi joins Oh My Ghostess as lusty virgin ghost
by | May 8, 2015 | 56 Comments
What a perfect fit. If I had to cast a lustful virgin ghost to go around possessing unsuspecting drama heroines and turning them boy-crazy, I’d definitely put Kim Seul-gi at the top of that list. Okay, so she might be the only name on that list. The SNL Korea funny girl is the latest cast... More »

by | November 12, 2014 | 17 Comments
How much do I love that Jo Jung-seok (You’re the Best, Lee Soon-shin) has worked his way up to being a comedic AND dramatic leading man? It doesn’t feel so long ago that he was just Lee Je-hoon’s unforgettable best friend in Introduction to Architecture, and now he’s headlining movies on his own left and... More »

2014 Busan International Film Festival’s opening red carpet
by | October 2, 2014 | 59 Comments
It’s red carpet season! I both love and hate awards/festival season (fall-winter, mostly) because on one hand, it’s never a burden to look at scores of beautiful people strutting a formal event looking (mostly) their best, but on the other, these posts can be massive and a pain to compile. But let our pain be... More »
