I really hope the upcoming action film Pirate turns out to be as fun as it looks, because it’s being promoted as a high-budget historical adventure blockbuster and the stills make it look like a roarin’ good time. Sort of Pirates of the Caribbean meets Joseon action sageuk, which cannot possibly go wrong, can it?... More »

Why hellooooo there, Kim Nam-gil. The man suffered through some really unfortunate bowl-cut ‘dos in his recent drama Shark, so I think it’s nice of the universe to give him back his mane o’ glory (circa Bidam of his Queen Seon-deok days) for his latest project, action blockbuster movie Pirate. (Which also happens to star... More »

Shark: Episode 17

Yep, I’m back for more Shark because there’s something intriguing about Oppa on a one-way warpath to revenge and ignoring everyone who’s telling him to take the next exit already. This tank is swimming with those who would love to see the other guy go belly up, but I suppose that’s the thing about war—you... More »

I’m here to dive headfirst into the deep end of the ocean of revenge where sharks make their dwelling. It’s Operation: Rescue on Shark as Yi-soo hunts down the one who’s taken what’s most dear to him.
