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 »

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 »

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 »

Okay, time is seriously flying by if Kim Sae-ron (Queen’s Classroom, Ajusshi) is going to play a high-schooler. It doesn’t seem right, but the math says she’s a teenager and the casting stories confirm that she’ll be headlining the new KBS teen drama High School as its leading lady. Though the series is being called... More »
