Ryu Soo-young (Two Weeks) will play her youthful love, while his younger brother Jung Kyung-ho (Heartless City) is the one who’s loved her from afar. Cue angsting! In the poster above,... More »

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.

Aw, what a happy night for Lee Bo-young, who got to arrive on the arm of a noona-killer, pick up the grand prize of the evening, and go home to her new hubby Ji Sung. Sometimes when you’re on fire, you’re on fiyah. The actress took home the top honor at the Korea Drama Awards... More »

by | September 26, 2013 | 59 Comments
MBC’s upcoming sageuk drama Empress Ki (formerly titled Hwatu) is gearing up for its long run (50 episodes), and assembled its cast earlier this month for script rehearsals. It’s a pretty robust cast, at that, which is enough to stir anticipation: Ha Ji-won has had great success in sageuk roles in the past (Hwang Jini,... More »

by | August 13, 2013 | 47 Comments
So many interesting actors, so little interest in this drama. Aie! I hate when this happens. Jin Yi-han is the latest addition to MBC’s upcoming 50-episode sageuk drama Hwatu, which will star Ha Ji-won as a Goryeo-born woman who becomes Empress Ki of the Yuan dynasty, and Joo Jin-mo as Goryeo’s King Chunghye, who wants...

by | February 19, 2012 | 71 Comments
Here we are at the end of the road for the heartwarming weekend family series Ojakkyo Brothers, which concluded its 58-episode run today on KBS, recording series-high ratings at 36.3% for the finale. It was by no means a perfect series, and had stretches of episodes that could have been condensed or done away with... More »

Ojakkyo Brothers: Halftime report
by | January 17, 2012 | 116 Comments
This show is quickly starting to rival my favorite family comedies. It’s got a great sense of humor, and it’s not afraid to let characters make massive mistakes, with the understanding that we’re going to be along for the ride when they learn, change, and grow. Now that I’m at the halfway-ish point, it’s time... More »

2011 KBS Drama Awards
by | December 31, 2011 | 100 Comments
Awards, awards, awards! And tons of pretty people. As with yesterday’s MBC Drama Awards, note that winners are decided in part due to popularity, in part due to ratings and politics. That said, I don’t think anyone will argue with their Daesang winner, Shin Ha-kyun (below), who has been tearing it up on Monday and... More »

Ojakkyo Brothers: An Introduction
by | December 31, 2011 | 127 Comments
One of the highest-rated shows of 2011 was actually one that we couldn’t include in the year-end reviews because of its length and that whole space-time continuum thing: the weekend family drama Ojakkyo Brothers, on KBS. I don’t normally pick up family dramas because I find it daunting to start a longer-running show. (I know,... More »

Drama Special kicks off the new year with Amore Mio
by | December 29, 2011 | 20 Comments
Heads up for a 4-episoder coming our way, part of KBS’s Drama Special anthology series, called Amore Mio and starring Park Gun-il. He’s an idol — member of the boy band Supernova — but I’m more familiar with him as the mysteriously creepy high school student he played in Hon. He’s also got a few... More »

Coffee House: Page 18 (Final)
by | August 1, 2010 | 139 Comments
I enjoyed this finale. Finale episodes are tricky things. You have to wrap up the story, but not in such a rushed way that it feels crammed, like the drama ran out of time. We as the audience usually need some time to come down from the emotional climax, and a drama that cuts off... More »
