Whee, there’s eye candy galore today, here in No. 2 of 3 of the broadcaster drama awards (KBS’s awards post is forthcoming), here at the 2015 SBS Drama Awards. This event had perhaps a smidge more starpower than last night’s MBC Drama Awards, which I attribute to SBS having had more hit dramas in the... More »

by | October 25, 2015 | 75 Comments
I always enjoy when an actor finishes up a project and has time to do the interview circuit, and Joo-won is pulling double-duty, with his drama Yong-pal recently wrapped and his upcoming movie That Man just about to release. That’s good for fans, since he recently gave a ton of interviews, and I’ve been reading... More »

We’ve come to the end of the road with Yong-pal, where love is the motivator for our characters to either climb upstairs or step downstairs to the world where the other is.

Yong-pal: Episode 17
by | October 1, 2015 | 220 Comments
It’s Yong-pal’s penultimate episode, and can be safely considered an exercise in patience as we get an hour full of misinformation, deception, and a staggering lack of inaction from those characters we maybe haven’t come to necessarily depend on, but who should be bringing more to the table this late in the meal. Yeo-jin finds... More »

Life for these newlyweds may look idyllic on the surface, but this hour introduces the possibility that our good doctor may not know the woman he’s married to as well as he thinks he does. Any doctoring is kept to a bare minimum in favor of company politics now that Yeo-jin’s back from the dead,... More »
