The Korea Drama Awards (part of the two-week Korea Drama Festival that kicked off today) isn’t one of the bigger award ceremonies around, but being that it’s drama-focused and inclusive of both broadcast and cable programs, it’s worth a look—even if the winners list does seem rather scattershot. The awards ceremony was held in the... More »

Doctor Stranger: Episode 1
by | May 6, 2014 | 215 Comments
There’s a new doctor in the house with Doctor Stranger, whose solid and compelling premiere still makes my heart race. And no, I’m not just talking about Lee Jong-seok’s abs, which I admit is a pretty big draw. I’m speaking to the great visuals, a gripping story, and characters who tug your emotions from the...

Casting confirmations are in for SBS’s spring Monday-Tuesday drama Doctor Stranger, with a yes from Lee Jong-seok (I Hear Your Voice) to play the hero, and a no from Park Min-young (Dr. Jin), leaving him without a leading lady for now.
