Kim Hyun-joo goes back to high school for Fantastic
by | August 22, 2016 | 55 Comments
For a drama that involves a main character with a terminal disease, JTBC’s Fantastic sure looks upbeat, which is something I could really get behind. That’s not to say that thoughtful, sorrowful terminal-disease dramas don’t have their place… I just think their place just may be far, far away from me at this moment, and... More »

Unpredictable laughs and tears in JTBC’s Fantastic
by | August 5, 2016 | 47 Comments
You know, you had me at “Joo Sang-wook playing a foot-actor.” It wasn’t until Joo Sang-wook took on comedy (Sly and Single Again, Birth of a Beauty) that I really thought he lit up the screen (though it’s true that his moment of reawakening can be traced back earlier to weekend saga Giant, and then...

Girlfriday was right on the money: Kim Hyun-joo (I Have a Lover) will star as a hit drama writer with a terminal... More »

Looking for eternal love in Dazzling Temptation
by | September 30, 2015 | 24 Comments
The new posters for MBC’s Dazzling Temptation are as pretty as the last, all lush and dreamy with a hint of sadness. Or maybe more than a little sadness, since the whole production screams melodrama and tears. It’s grand drama all the way, with the poster’s tagline reading “Let’s love, while expecting it will last... More »

First love and prison tears for MBC melodrama Dazzling Temptation
by | September 23, 2015 | 37 Comments
Well the posters are pretty, I’ll give them that. And so are the childhood scenes, as expected. I’m just more than a little wary of MBC’s upcoming Monday-Tuesday drama Dazzling Temptation, mostly because I lived through Gold Rainbow. It had a similar setup where the extended childhood backstory was really sweet and heartfelt, then with... More »

by | June 12, 2015 | 30 Comments
In a surprise twist, the show actually starts to become really good. I almost can’t believe it’s the same show. Finally everything has managed to come together and not only make sense, but be entertaining as well. Plot wise (because there is a plot! Yay!), Min-hee continues to be awesome as she idealistically tries to... More »
