Wouldn’t they make an adorable couple? It’s still unconfirmed, but Shin Mina (Arang and the Magistrate) and Jo Jung-seok (You’re the Best, Lee Soon-shin) might be headed down the aisle… for a movie, that is.

One drama down, one movie to go for Jo Jung-seok
by | September 8, 2013 | 148 Comments
He just wrapped a drama and has a movie release upcoming, which means more Jo Jung-seok in the news—always a good thing, I say. He spent the past six months filming family series You’re the Best, Lee Soon-shin, although I’d argue that he was terribly underutilized on that show. And that’s despite the fact that... More »

You’re the Best, Lee Soon-shin: Episodes 49-50 (Final)
by | August 25, 2013 | 100 Comments
I have good news: The ending of You’re the Best, Lee Soon-shin is legitimately solid. Who would’ve expected that, especially with the trajectory we were on? Sure, we had some very neatly tied ends, but by and large I felt we got our characters fitting, satisfying end notes. There was a cathartic feeling to watching... More »

You’re the Best, Lee Soon-shin: Episodes 43-44 [Open Thread]
by | August 4, 2013 | 128 Comments
Aw, there are a lot of really great character moments in this pair of episodes — the plot is standard stuff, as we’ve come to expect by now, but the quiet emotional moments between characters had a nice ring to them. Well, some of those moments, because half of the cast remains insane and ridiculous,... More »
