Looking for eternal love in Dazzling Temptation
by | September 30, 2015 | 23 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 »

Joo Sang-wook, Choi Kang-hee for MBC’s Dazzling Temptation
by | August 16, 2015 | 56 Comments
Wait, there was a whole round of stories earlier this week that said Choi Kang-hee (Heart to Heart) wasn’t going to do this drama. I don’t know what they did to get her back onboard, but now she’s back to possibly headlining the cast of MBC’s upcoming melodrama Dazzling Temptation, which reunites her with the... More »

Masked Prosecutor: Episode 5
by | June 12, 2015 | 29 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 »

Detective Min-hee’s determined to figure out who is behind the mysterious mask, and Dae-chul had better watch out because she’s no dummy. He’ll need to be quick on his feet and with his wits to avoid being caught. Min-hee, Dae-chul, Ri-an, and, well, just about everyone is also desperate to reel in baddie Sang-taek. Everyone... More »

Masked Prosecutor: Episode 3
by | May 30, 2015 | 35 Comments
Detective Lollypip, reporting for Masked Prosecutor duty! Things start to take a more definitive direction with this episode, and our hero now has a purpose to his masked activities. I agree with previous recaps that the show got off to an awkward start — but with recent tragic events, Dae-chul’s masked avenger now has some... More »

Masked Prosecutor: Episode 2
by | May 27, 2015 | 38 Comments
Things come together a little more this episode, as our leads’ greater agendas are exposed, or in Dae-chul’s case, created. With Min-hee and Dae-chul working a case together, there’s bickering and eye-rolling enough to keep you chuckling even if you can’t keep track of who all those old men are. But the problem with those... More »

Masked Prosecutor: Episode 1
by | May 24, 2015 | 56 Comments
Every superhero needs an origin story, and the premiere of Masked Prosecutor gives us a peek at both when our hero decided to first don the mask and why prosecution is the name of the game. While it’s still a little unclear exactly what tone the show is going for (Light and campy? Serious revenge... More »

Mercenary prosecutor by day, masked avenger by night
by | May 15, 2015 | 36 Comments
I’m split on the new posters for Masked Prosecutor — one of them is cute and sassy, while the other is generic and boring and makes Joo Sang-wook look like a doctor. Since you’re embracing the silly comedy, you could put him in his crazy vigilante Nacho Libre mask, but instead you choose that? Tags:... More »

Oh Snap! Put your hands in the air for Masked Prosecutor
by | May 13, 2015 | 51 Comments
Okay, Kim Sun-ah looks way too glamorous in these Masked Prosecutor stills to be a detective on the job — more like a fashion model posing in a cop-themed shoot, maybe — but I’m certainly not going to complain about her kicking ass and fighting crime. And Joo Sang-wook should always play comically arrogant types,... More »

The prosecutor rips off his robes and dons his mask
by | May 7, 2015 | 74 Comments
Well, we asked for it, didn’t we? And now it can’t be unseen. The first teaser is out for KBS’s new crime-fighting vigilante drama Masked Prosecutor (or should I call it Prosecutor Libre?) and, um, I can definitely say it’s a comedy. Thank goodness for that, though I’m still holding out hope that the prosecutor’s... More »
