by | September 16, 2013 | 25 Comments
It’s always nice when an indie movie has a good showing at the box office. Director Hong Sang-soo’s latest project Our Sunhi did well in its opening weekend, with over 13,000 tickets sold.

More stills from God of the Workplace
by | March 15, 2013 | 48 Comments
Office dramas can be hit or miss, but I’m keeping one eye on KBS’s God of the Workplace because when they hit, I find them light and funny and simple. (When they miss, they can be boring and dry. But then I think fondly of the good ones like Dal Ja’s Spring, which is my... More »

by | March 12, 2013 | 29 Comments
The first teaser is out for KBS’s upcoming office drama titled God of the Workplace, and so far it looks light and funny. The drama had initially been called Please Come Back, Miss Kim, and after seeing the short-n-sweet preview, I do wish they’d kept the title. Or tweaked it, perhaps. But God of the... More »

by | February 27, 2013 | 30 Comments

If you haven’t checked out this drama, which is a follow-up/sequel/spin-off to last year’s I Need Romance, then at least read the wonderful recap by gummimochi for episode 1, and then go watch the drama. I Need Romance 2012 is a delightful little gem that is a little more refreshing than the zany romantic comedies out there.... More »

Jung Yumi recently wrapped her cable drama I Need Romance 2012, and she’s also featured in two fashion magazines sporting vastly disparate styles.
