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 »

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...

If you’re in Korea, you can celebrate with the inaugural episode of what is being called the first-ever “SNS drama”… which… okay, doesn’t seem to be the most natural delivery format for a drama.

Nine’s melancholy and mysterious teasers
by | February 13, 2013 | 56 Comments
Ooh, I’m intrigued by the tone of these teasers for the new tvN time traveling drama Nine — they’re moody and dramatic, and steeped in regret. Beautiful regret, mind you, but just enough to make this a darker, more mysterious world than I had anticipated, and I find myself a little more interested than when... More »
