Possibly joining them is Ohn Joo-wan, who’d be hopping from one prosecutor drama... More »

Joo Sang-wook and Kim Sun-ah for new KBS vigilante drama
by | March 26, 2015 | 86 Comments
Okay, why does the mental picture of Joo Sang-wook as a caped crusader immediately give me the giggles? Maybe it’s because he’s been letting loose in a string of rom-coms lately (Birth of a Beauty, Sly and Single Again), but I can so picture him in a ridiculous hero costume involving mostly tights. Technically, the... More »

And now for SBS’s awards! I thought yesterday’s ceremony over at MBC was a bit lackluster, but maybe that was more about not really loving MBC’s dramas of the past year and not having seen very many of their winners. It’s a different story over at SBS, which had a bunch of shows (and more... More »

Birth of a Beauty: Episodes 1-2
by | November 4, 2014 | 92 Comments
SBS is taking a lighter, funnier approach to its weekend programs right now, with the newly premiered rom-com Birth of a Beauty joining the ridiculously goofball Modern Farmer on Saturdays and Sundays.

Revenge spurs romance in Birth of a Beauty
by | October 29, 2014 | 53 Comments
I hadn’t realized that makeover rom-com Birth of a Beauty was a revenge story (albeit a super-lighthearted one), but that’s a detail I can see working for the premise. It’s not a revenge drama per se (in that I don’t expect the whole show to follow the heroine’s vengeance path), but that’ll provide us with... More »

by | August 30, 2014 | 44 Comments
It seems a number of upcoming weekend dramas are basing their plots on box office successes. We just heard about MBC’s new drama, Legendary Witch, the plot of which sounds suspiciously like Gift of Room 7, albeit with a female cast. Now we’ve got SBS joining in on the action with Birth of a Beauty... More »

Sly and Single Again: Episode 16 (Final)
by | April 27, 2014 | 90 Comments
We’ve finally reached the end! As the first drama I’ve recapped for Dramabeans, Sly will always have a special place in my heart. I think of it like my child, in that I despaired whenever I saw it heading down the wrong path, yet I defended it rabidly against its detractors and always tried to... More »

Now that Jung-woo has stopped denying his feelings, he’s doing his best to make up for lost time. Our jealous CEO makes some big strides this episode, learning that sometimes the best way to show someone you care is to give them some room. But just as it seems that our main leads might be... More »
