Doctor Stranger’s new mishmash of a preview
by | April 21, 2014 | 74 Comments
A new Doctor Stranger teaser is out! …and to be quite honest, I don’t know that I get it. It’s certainly a… diverse preview — we start out with a light, cheeky vibe as Lee Jong-seok bickers with a disdainful Kang So-ra, then calls a bunch of doctors quacks. Then things get serious on the... More »

First script read for medical melo Doctor Stranger
by | April 2, 2014 | 52 Comments
Oooh, I’m starting to get excited about Doctor Stranger, mostly because there is a special place in my heart for Lee Jong-seok (I Hear Your Voice). He and the cast got together for their first script read a few weeks back, and gosh, don’t he and Park Hae-jin (You From Another Star) look pretty? Balancing... More »

Doctor Stranger: Lee Jong-seok in, Park Min-young out
by | February 5, 2014 | 73 Comments
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. Is it wrong that I care more about whether or not he’ll still have... 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. (I say unexpected because the drama was given its timeslot hastily when another show fell through... More »

Im Joo-hwan (What’s Up) is back on television, and here are the pretty first stills from his new SBS drama starring opposite Kang So-ra (Dream High 2). They look lovely and fresh and ready for spring, but I’ll say it again: daily drama booooo. The title is Watch Out For Fools, changed from its previous... More »

Casting news galore! And do I mean galore: Lee Soo-hyuk (Vampire Idol, Tree With Deep Roots) joins the cast of KBS’s revenge melodrama Shark. It’s the show that stars Kim Nam-gil as a man on a revenge mission against the family that destroyed his own. Again, I mean, since we’ve already seen Bad Guy. Lee... More »

2012 MBC Drama Awards
by | December 30, 2012 | 302 Comments
Well, we’ve given out our awards for 2012; now it’s time to see how MBC distributed its honors. And if past years are any indication, there are bound to be some head-scratchers and some obvious political choices. Then again, that’s sort of the name of the game all across the board, isn’t it? The thing... More »

48th Baeksang Arts Awards
by | April 26, 2012 | 166 Comments
Baeksang Awards! This springtime award show has the distinction of honoring both film and television, sort of like the Golden Globes, and has been running for nearly half a century, since 1965. Since it’s not a broadcast station award (where you have a broadcaster giving awards to its own shows) but awards across stations, winning... More »

Dream High 2: Series Wrap-up
by | March 26, 2012 | 152 Comments
As you know, we started out with hopes for Dream High 2 that quickly fizzled, and recaps were dropped after the first two weeks. I don’t regret that choice in the least, but I did continue watching the show out of curiosity, and now that it’s over, I’m weighing in with some overall thoughts on... More »

Dream High 2: Episode 4
by | February 7, 2012 | 179 Comments
We’re given hints at the potential conflicts of a few more characters, but as usual, what we get are crumbs. In attempting to give too many characters adequate screentime, you end up shafting everybody; it would have been vastly more effective to establish rapport with two or three kids, then work in the support crew....

Dream High 2: Episode 3
by | February 6, 2012 | 126 Comments
It’s time to set up rivalries all around, but to be honest, I found myself struggling to care in this episode, though it did pick up somewhat in the latter half. Most of the hour was spent rehashing conflicts we already knew about, though the rivalry between Hae-sung and Ri-an has hints of promise and... More »
