Shin Sung-rok, Jo Yoon-hee’s first shoots for King’s Face
by | October 30, 2014 | 46 Comments
I really didn’t think Lee Jong-seok was going to have any competition for Mane of Shame this year, but I dunno… Shin Sung-rok is giving him a run for his money. I know, there’s no time for growing manes when you’re busy booking it back and forth between two drama sets. Shin is currently in... More »

Seo In-gook as incognito prince in King’s Face
by | October 27, 2014 | 48 Comments
I did honestly wonder if The King’s Face would ever make it to production; it was touch and go for a while there with plagiarism accusations hanging in the air and injunctions filed, but cameras are rolling on the set of the new KBS fusion historical drama. Lead actor Seo In-gook joined the drama’s shoots... More »

Seo In-gook and Jo Yoon-hee confirm King’s Face
by | September 24, 2014 | 30 Comments
I half-expected this drama never to see the light of day, but then again, controversy doesn’t seem to stop most broadcasters from airing content and dealing with the fallout later. In the case of KBS’s fusion sageuk The King’s Face, the drama has been embroiled in plagiarism controversy since late this summer, when production house... More »

by | August 26, 2014 | 28 Comments
Recent controversy doesn’t seem to have derailed KBS, accusations of plagiarism and lawsuits be damned. On August 25, producers of the 2013 movie The Face Reader filed for an injunction against KBS for their unauthorized drama remake The King’s Face, alleging that KBS met with them to make the drama, backed out of the deal,...

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 »

Nine: Series review (spoiler free)
by | November 25, 2013 | 91 Comments
Better late than never, right? I caught tvN’s time-travel series Nine: Nine Time Travels when it first aired in March, and had a generally favorable response: good actors, solid directing, interesting backdrop, a story with potential. But while they were positive impressions, they were not particularly strong ones—it was well-executed, but a little slow to... More »

So let’s get right to it: First up, here’s Lee Min-jung (All About My Romance) in her first... More »

Well that’s a saucy title. If your drama’s called Scandal, it’d better raise some temperatures to live up to its name. MBC has a new weekend drama in the works that’s set to follow Hundred Year Inheritance, and Kim Jae-won (May Queen) and Jo Yoon-hee (Nine) have signed on to headline. Well at least Kim... More »

Nine: Episode 2
by | March 12, 2013 | 76 Comments
The second episode has a better emotional hook, as the people around our hero get a chance to react to what’s happening to him. In that sense, it’s nice that the story moves fast enough that we’re not wasting time with big misunderstandings. But overall it’s not a speedy show—the pace could use a swift... More »

Nine: Episode 1
by | March 11, 2013 | 72 Comments
Today saw the premiere of Nine: Nine Time Travels, which I’ll just be calling Nine since redundancy is redundant. Also redundant. The show comes from the team behind Queen In-hyun’s Man, and for that alone it was worth noting — In-hyun was deftly directed, gorgeously shot, and had a polished, cinematic flair. On the other...
