50th Baeksang Arts Awards
by | May 27, 2014 | 192 Comments
Spread the love around must’ve been this year’s mantra at the 50th annual Baeksang Awards, where the (somewhat) best of both film and television come to pick up shiny trophies. Once you get past the initial Huh, what, why? of the nominee list, the winners list is no surprise. There wasn’t a big sweep by... More »

Teaser and posters for chase rom-com Catch Me
by | November 16, 2013 | 38 Comments
Hee, I like the poster concept for Joo-won and Kim Ah-joong’s new romantic comedy movie Catch Me. There’s just inherent comedy in Joo-won grabbing Kim Ah-joong’s ankle to catch her; sure he’s the cop chasing the cat burglar, but it also has the double meaning of him being the clingy one in the relationship who...

Joo-won and Kim Ah-joong’s new rom-com Catch Me
by | November 4, 2013 | 109 Comments
Sometimes I wonder if Joo-won cloned himself, because he’s in so many things that I often don’t know when he could’ve possibly filmed half of his projects. I had nearly forgotten about this one, a cops-and-robbers romantic comedy movie called Catch Me (previously called Only You), co-starring Kim Ah-joong (My P.S. Partner). The production released...

Movie Review: 200 Pound Beauty
by | September 30, 2013 | 63 Comments
Plastic surgery is a thing in Korea in a way that would surprise the denizens of most countries. Only since I started living in Los Angeles, spending time in the heart of the Hollywood entertainment machine, have I started to overhear discussions about plastic surgery in the United States that even come close to the...

49th Baeksang Arts Awards
by | May 9, 2013 | 169 Comments
The Baeksang Arts Awards really snuck up on me this year. This awards ceremony is the lone wolf being held in the springtime rather than toward the end of the year (as is the case with the broadcaster events and film awards like the Grand Bells and Blue Dragons), and is also unusual in that...

Kim Ah-joong plays cat burglar to Joo-won’s cop
by | March 22, 2013 | 94 Comments
It looks like we might have a leading lady for Joo-won’s new romantic comedy film called (super vaguely) Only You, about a cop and a house burglar who fall in love. Kim Ah-joong (My P.S. Partner, Sign) is reportedly in contract negotiations to take the role, though it’s not finalized. Hm, I don’t have strong... More »

Ji Sung plays peek-a-boo

Nothing like a cheeky photo shoot to brighten up my day. Here’s Ji Sung looking dapper and being adorable for Allure, to promote his new movie My P.S. Partner, due to premiere in a few weeks. There’s also a boatload of new stills from the movie set, showing that the “P.S.” for phone sex isn’t... More »

Poster and stills for rom-com My P.S. Partner
by | October 17, 2012 | 52 Comments
Rawr. Well I’m in. Where’s the ticket line? The first poster is out for the new romantic comedy movie starring Ji Sung and Kim Ah-joong, called My P.S. Partner, and it looks like a fun and sexy romp. The P.S. stands for phone sex (because that happens to be how they awkwardly meet), but this... 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 »

Kim Ah-joong and Ji Sung make a sexy movie connection
by | February 13, 2012 | 55 Comments
Casting news: Kim Ah-joong and Ji Sung will be romancing each other in a new movie, a romantic comedy titled My P.S. Partner. Anyone wanna take a guess what the P.S. stands for? Not photoshop, not parasailing, and not pizza-snacking (what? That’s a thing). In this case it indicates phone sex, and the story kicks... More »

47th Baeksang Arts Awards
by | May 26, 2011 | 195 Comments
It’s too bad that Hyun Bin was missing from the 47th Baeksang Arts Awards, since he and his drama picked up a bunch of awards. (Alas, there’s that whole mandatory military thing.) Not only did he grab a Daesang in the TV portion (film Daesang went to Lee Byung-heon for his thriller I Saw the... More »
