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 »

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 »

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 »
