I like this second teaser for SBS thriller Wanted even more than its first; it’s allowing me to feel cautiously optimistic about the drama and its suspenseful premise featuring a mysterious villain who orders a famous actress to carry out missions on live television in order to get her kidnapped son back. Kim Ah-joong plays... More »

This first teaser for Wanted is short, but it’s a good one — right off the bat, it’s mysterious, sinister, and gets out its premise boldly and efficiently. If the teaser’s style is indicative of the rest of the series (and that’s not always the case), we may be in for a solid summer thriller.... More »

Admittedly these first stills from SBS’s upcoming thriller Wanted aren’t that thrilling, but I suppose I can wait a little while longer for the thrills kick in; with its high-concept crime-mystery plot, I anticipate that once it gets going, it won’t let up anytime soon.

Now it’s secured its three main leads: Kim Ah-joong (Punch), Uhm... More »

We might see him back in dramaland as early as May, because he’s been offered the leading role in tvN’s new mistaken identity romance called Oh Hae-young Again... More »

It hasn’t even been a week and already I MISS YOUR FACE. Thankfully I’m not the only one suffering from a severe lack of Ryu Joon-yeol in my life, because the offers have been pouring in left and right (as they have for all the breakout stars of Answer Me 1988), and yay for us,... More »
