Looking for eternal love in Dazzling Temptation
by | September 30, 2015 | 24 Comments
The new posters for MBC’s Dazzling Temptation are as pretty as the last, all lush and dreamy with a hint of sadness. Or maybe more than a little sadness, since the whole production screams melodrama and tears. It’s grand drama all the way, with the poster’s tagline reading “Let’s love, while expecting it will last... More »

First love and prison tears for MBC melodrama Dazzling Temptation
by | September 23, 2015 | 37 Comments
Well the posters are pretty, I’ll give them that. And so are the childhood scenes, as expected. I’m just more than a little wary of MBC’s upcoming Monday-Tuesday drama Dazzling Temptation, mostly because I lived through Gold Rainbow. It had a similar setup where the extended childhood backstory was really sweet and heartfelt, then with... More »

Kim Sae-ron (High School: Love On) has signed on to play the younger heroine, while Nam Joo-hyuk (Who Are You—School 2015) is considering an offer to play the... More »

51st Baeksang Arts Awards
by | May 26, 2015 | 217 Comments
The Baeksang Arts Awards are back with their 51st installment, awarding prizes in both film and television. Most of the entries were fairly predictable, though the night wasn’t without a few surprise wins. One of the big surprises was variety PD Na Young-seok being named the Daesang winner in the TV category; although I wouldn’t... More »

2014 MBC Drama Awards

Red carpet time! The year-end station awards are upon us, and MBC is up first with their Drama Awards for 2014. MBC isn’t historically known for making a whole lot of sense when it comes to how they hand out trophies at the end of the year, though to be fair, they’re not the only... More »

As one of the biggest awards ceremonies in the industry, the 35th Blue Dragon Awards turned out a number of stars and covered a pretty good spread of titles in its winners list—a few films took home multiple trophies, but there wasn’t a single movie sweeping every category. It was nice to see a fair... More »

2014 Busan International Film Festival’s opening red carpet
by | October 2, 2014 | 59 Comments
It’s red carpet season! I both love and hate awards/festival season (fall-winter, mostly) because on one hand, it’s never a burden to look at scores of beautiful people strutting a formal event looking (mostly) their best, but on the other, these posts can be massive and a pain to compile. But let our pain be... More »

High School: Love On: Episode 1
by | July 14, 2014 | 101 Comments
What an intriguing little show. High School: Love On feels like a curious experiment for KBS, not just with its quirky genre bent but also format. Truth be told, I was expecting this show to be either a mess or to fall by the wayside entirely because for months, KBS kept changing its mind about... More »
