Cute pairing alert! Jung So-min (Big Man, Could We Marry) and Hong Jong-hyun (Dating Agency Cyrano) have just been cast as the leads in an upcoming horror-romance movie called Alice. My first reaction to the casting was to think that they must’ve been coupled up before, only to realize my brain was making a few... More »

Big Man: Episode 1
by | April 29, 2014 | 69 Comments
Next up for our melodramatic pleasure, Big Man premiered on KBS this week, taking the usual “I want your heart” phrase to a very literal degree. The show’s premise is like crossing your classic rags-to-riches fairytale with a medical nightmare with a chaebol group after your actual ticker. They say that revenge can sometimes take... More »

The con gets going for KBS’s Big Man
by | April 17, 2014 | 40 Comments
Time to check back in with Big Man, the KBS melo-thriller drama about a cadre of chaebols out to steal Kang Ji-hwan’s (Incarnation of Money) heart—and by that I mean literally cheat the heart right out of his chest cavity. Apparently our resident chaebol Daniel Choi (School 2013) needs a new one (and again we’re... More »

Jung So-min is currently acting in the cable drama Can We Marry, which is heading into its finale… now. As in, today, almost right this minute. The show is hovering just under the 3% mark on JTBC, which may not be the incredible 8% ratings posted by Childless Good Fortune—8%, yowsa—but is still a strong... More »

Standby: Episode 87 (Highlight)
by | September 19, 2012 | 32 Comments
A Standby highlight that DOESN’T have anything to do with Ha Suk-jin? Who knew this day would come? This show is totally lagging for me these days, but this episode came along and was so sweet and wistful that I felt sad all over again that the rest of the show wasn’t as solid. Still,... More »

Dramabeans Podcast #13: Standby
by | August 5, 2012 | 51 Comments
Hello, folks! This is a podcast we hadn’t planned, exactly, but ended up recording because that just seemed easier, given how far along we’re in Standby at this point, compared to the last time we covered it. It’s a show that I’ve been watching regularly, and while it’s not rocking my world, there are enough... More »

Standby: Episodes 15-29 (Highlights)
by | May 20, 2012 | 47 Comments
Now that we’re almost 30 episodes into the show, I think Standby has established its tone and approach, which is to say: silly, fluffy, and simple. There isn’t a lot of complexity here and I think the conflicts are pretty basic, and the show tends to draw its characters in broad strokes rather than working... More »

Standby: Episodes 5-14 (Highlights)
by | April 29, 2012 | 47 Comments
More Standby! So here’s the deal: I won’t be recapping (or weecapping) MBC daily sitcom Standby on a regular basis, because that’s just a level of commitment I’m not ready to make. Furthermore, the show is a pretty simple watch, and not always worth examining on a deeper level… ’cause I’m not sure it HAS... More »

Standby: An introduction
by | April 16, 2012 | 63 Comments
MBC kicked off its new sitcom Standby last week, and if you’ve been following my updates on the show, you’ll know I’ve been anticipating its premiere. That’s mostly thanks to its endearing main cast—Ryu Jin playing bumbling, Lee Ki-woo going mischievous, Jung So-min back on TV, period—and the workplace setup. (Family sitcoms can be great,... More »
