Kim Kang-woo to play tyrant king
by | August 27, 2014 | 11 Comments
I like the way the pieces are falling into place for the upcoming sageuk film The King’s Advisor. Joo Ji-hoon (Medical Top Team) had already signed on as the treacherous advisor who wields immense power over King Yeonsangun, widely regarded as one of the worst kings of the Joseon era. Joo’s advisor character is thought... More »

Golden Cross: Episode 1
by | April 10, 2014 | 42 Comments
Here was my thought process in the moments before watching Golden Cross’ premiere episode: If you’re bad, it would be a relief. Then I don’t have to worry about having to recap you. Maybe you’ll be bad. You could be bad. Sure your writer wrote Gaksital which I loved, but that was a historical action... More »

Greed and crime drive financial thriller Golden Cross
by | April 3, 2014 | 22 Comments

The copy on the poster reads: “0.001% of greed, 100% of crimes, 1% of evidence.” It’s mathy, but I’ll... More »

Will this drama ever find its hero? I’m actually more intrigued by the behind-the-scenes drama of KBS’s newest revenge melo Golden Cross than in the drama itself, but one thing’s for sure: if Kim Kang-woo (Tabloid) signs on, I will suddenly find myself verrry interested. The new Wednesday-Thursday drama for KBS’s spring slate has cycled... More »

Teaser for Kim Bum and Kim Kang-woo’s Psychometry
by | January 27, 2013 | 45 Comments
Ah, this title makes more sense: Psychometry is the paranormal crime thriller starring Kim Bum and Kim Kang-woo that formerly went by the (vaguer, less interesting-sounding) Miracle. While Psychometry is fairly literal as far as monikers go, it does seem much more fitting to the murder-investigation plotline. The teaser’s out, which hints at an entertaining... More »
