Romance Town: Episode 1
by | May 15, 2011 | 116 Comments
Hallo everyone! I have joined the brigade of “All Dramas – No Sleep” – at least, until 49 Days ends. It was hard to get excited about this drama, what with Cha Seung Won being funny on one end, and Yoon Eun Hye back where she belongs in romantic comedy. But I guess all I... More »

by | May 9, 2011 | 56 Comments
Aw, my interest in this drama just went up a notch. Here are some stills of upcoming upstairs-downstairs romantic comedy drama Romance Town, with leads Sung Yuri and Jung Kyeo-woon looking adorable. I know, I’m easy. Just throw some cute at me and I’m waggin’ my tail. A few of the stills finally show Sung... More »

Romance Town unveils its posters
by | April 29, 2011 | 31 Comments
Romance Town unveils its main posters, which are frothy and cute, as I hope the drama also will be. The one above is my favorite, because it conveys a vibe that’s a bit different than what we’ve come to expect of K-dramas. It’s got a bit of old-world elegance, but cheekily positions the help (namely,... More »

Sung Yuri transforms into a maid for Romance Town
by | April 8, 2011 | 31 Comments
I’m pretty sure I’ll find myself continuing to call Sung Yuri’s new drama Maids in my head, but I’ll have to get used to referring to it by its new title, the (sigh) rather lackluster Romance Town. (Some commenters suggested that perhaps the title sounds better by its Korean name, but alas, I can say... More »

Maids changes its name to…
by | April 4, 2011 | 61 Comments
Romance Town? Are you kidding me? But that’s so… lame. Last week, the drama formerly known as Maids encountered some opposition regarding its name, as it uses a word for “maids” [식모] that has in recent years been abandoned for more favorable, politically correct terminology. The production was aware of the possibility that the title... More »

by | March 30, 2011 | 75 Comments
With its cast in place — Sung Yuri, Jung Kyeo-woon, Kim Min-joon, and Min Hyo-rin — and its May premiere set, KBS’s rom-com series Maids held its first script rehearsals this week. But one lingering issue remains unresolved: the title, with which producers are wrestling after receiving complaints. The problem? One national organization of housekeeping... More »

Maids adds Min Hyo-rin, Kim Min-joon
by | March 28, 2011 | 29 Comments
Two new cast members have been added to Maids: singer-turned-actress (and fashion-mag favorite) Min Hyo-rin and tough guy Kim Min-joon. My reaction to this news is twofold: Yay! and Ehhh… The rom-com vehicle from Pasta’s scriptwriter stars Sung Yuri (Swallow the Sun) as a maid working for rich chaebol families, which brings her into contact...

Kim Min-joon takes villain’s role in Blue Salt
by | November 17, 2010 | 24 Comments
With the addition of Kim Min-joon (Friend, Our Legend), upcoming thriller film Blue Salt has its villain — or at least another one, given that lead actress Shin Se-kyung is playing an assassin. Though I suspect she will not quite be a villainess; her character does approach the retired mob boss played by Song Kang-ho... More »

Friend will not be ending early
by | August 16, 2009 | 16 Comments
…in case you were wondering, which you probably weren’t. MBC’s weekend miniseries Friend, Our Legend [친구, 우리들의 전설] has not had the buzzed-about broadcast run it was hoping for when it adapted one of the biggest box-office hits in Korean film history and cast name stars like Hyun Bin and Kim Min-joon in the leads....

Newest posters for Friend, Our Legend
by | June 25, 2009 | 24 Comments
Are you excited for the new drama Friend, Our Legend? If you’re not, that’s okay. I’m not, either, despite (or perhaps because of) all the hype. But there are a lot of dramas that I didn’t expect to like initially that I did in the end, so I won’t make a call until it’s aired.... More »
