by | January 1, 2013 | 91 Comments
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 lovelines and flashbacks in Standby
by | April 5, 2012 | 46 Comments
Well, that’s one way to grab our attention, isn’t it? Jung So-min and Im Shi-wan haven’t been in many of the promos for upcoming sitcom Standby, so now’s their chance in the spotlight. And cute almost-smoochies are always an attention-getting way to reel us in; we’re cheap like that. He plays a high school student... More »

We’re a week out from the premiere of MBC’s daily sitcom Standby, which began shooting this past week. This also gives us a chance to take a look at the characters who will be populating this world, beginning with Ryu Jin as the series lead (though in a sitcom, it’s more of an ensemble effort...

2010 MBC Drama Awards
by | December 30, 2010 | 231 Comments
It’s time for each broadcast station to put on their end-of-year awards. The MBC Drama Awards are first of the bunch, and man, Kim Nam-joo must be peeved. She finally gets her Daesang — and it goes shared, with Han Hyo-joo. Yeesh. This is almost as bad as when MBC split the Daesang between Kim... More »
