Masked Prosecutor: Episode 2
by | May 27, 2015 | 35 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 | 35 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 »

Kim Sun-ah, Joo Sang-wook’s first stills for Masked Prosecutor
by | May 5, 2015 | 48 Comments
Kim Sun-ah is back! (Okay, I’m also happy that Joo Sang-wook is back, but the guy’s done a lot of shows recently and I’ve enjoyed most of them, so my anticipation right now is more about her. Sorry dude, but that’s just how the law of scarcity works!) KBS’s Masked Prosecutor has begun shooting, and... More »

First script read for KBS’s Masked Prosecutor
by | April 22, 2015 | 57 Comments
There’s nothing like a vigilante hero to get me excited for a new drama. Not that Kim Sun-ah (I Do, I Do) and Joo Sang-wook (Birth of a Beauty) together wouldn’t be worth watching for the cast alone, but then you give one of them a mask and a crusade to fight, and I’m there... More »

Masked Prosecutor confirms leads, courts Ohn Joo-wan
by | April 9, 2015 | 34 Comments
Well, it’s nice to to have a drama these days being so straightforward with its casting news: Joo Sang-wook (Birth of a Beauty) and Kim Sun-ah (I Do, I Do) were previously considering KBS’s upcoming Masked Prosecutor, and now they have confirmed. 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 | 87 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 »

2014 SBS Drama Awards
by | December 31, 2014 | 150 Comments
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. When this drama was first announced, I wondered how they’d take this makeover premise and make it fresh, since I felt like no... More »
