New Year’s Eve was the big night for the SBS Drama Awards (and KBS as well, which will be up next), and Lee Bo-young came out on top for one of the year’s unexpected successes, I Hear Your Voice. (I say unexpected because the drama was given its timeslot hastily when another show fell through... More »

Answer Me 1997′s cast drops by 1994 for cameos
by | December 11, 2013 | 127 Comments
I’d heard mention of Answer Me 1994 bringing in cameo appearances from one or two members of last year’s Answer Me 1997, but hadn’t expect a whole cast drop-in, which is what we’ll be getting in the upcoming episodes. Fun! In the preview for Episode 16 (below), we get a glimpse of Jung Eun-ji and... More »

49th Baeksang Arts Awards
by | May 9, 2013 | 169 Comments
The Baeksang Arts Awards really snuck up on me this year. This awards ceremony is the lone wolf being held in the springtime rather than toward the end of the year (as is the case with the broadcaster events and film awards like the Grand Bells and Blue Dragons), and is also unusual in that...

Purdy. Things are starting to look up for the new Noh Hee-kyung melodrama That Winter, The Wind Blows, with the release of pretty posters, a teaser that isn’t all doom and gloom, and some interesting character quirks for our leads. Granted, it’s still your con-artist-meets-heiress fauxcest melo, but the tone is leaning less tragedy-porn and... More »

by | January 1, 2013 | 173 Comments
Here’s our first look at the new Noh Hee-kyung melodrama set to air next month on SBS, That Winter, The Wind Blows, starring Song Hye-gyo and Jo In-sung. It… sure is dramatic, I’ll give you that. It honestly must just be the way it’s edited together to give maximum melo impact, but is anyone else... More »

More casting additions for the new Noh Hee-kyung drama That Winter, The Wind Blows: an offer has been made to Kim Bum to rejoin the writer and director team behind his last drama, Padam Padam. He’s reportedly considering the role, but no confirmations yet. I say if there’s a clause wherein you do two of... More »

Interview with Answer Me 1997′s Jung Eun-ji
by | September 17, 2012 | 60 Comments
This girl is adorable. I’m pretty sure it’s 99.9% her character in Answer Me 1997 that makes me love Jung Eun-ji so much, but hey, that gruff swear-first-ask-questions-later attitude has to come from somewhere deep within, right? If she weren’t an idol, I’d have put my money on gangster’s daughter, ’cause she’s a badass, and... More »

Answer Me 1997: Episode 15
by | September 14, 2012 | 165 Comments
Fallout time. Now that everyone knows everything (thanks Truth Chair), it’s time to face the music. The love triangle finally comes to a head in this episode, and though it’s not my favorite plot thread, this show does what it does so well. It subverts expectation and stabs me in the heart, over what else,... More »

Answer Me 1997′s cast to host SNL Korea
by | September 12, 2012 | 43 Comments
This show’s on fire, isn’t it? I would’ve bet on tvN’s Answer Me 1997 being a cult hit with a fervent small fanbase, but it’s turning into a bona fide mainstream hit. Its leads Jung Eun-ji and Seo In-gook were recent guests on Go Hyun-jung’s talk program GoShow, and now the cast will be hosting... More »

Answer Me 1997: Episodes 13-14
by | September 8, 2012 | 236 Comments
I was sad about leaving the ’90s behind, but thankfully all it takes is one long-overdue encounter to bring every tumultuous teenage emotion back to the surface, rendering the six years spent growing up and growing apart… totally moot. It’s the pair of episodes where our characters find that they might not be as grown... More »
