Gold Rainbow: An Introduction
by | January 11, 2014 | 100 Comments
I’ve been watching weekend series Gold Rainbow since it first premiered in November, mostly because I was excited about UEE and Jung Il-woo doing a drama together.

New-drama alert! SBS is prepping an upcoming Monday-Tuesday series called Father’s War, which has cast Wang Ji-hye in the lead, who’s coming off of the cable drama Bachelor’s Vegetable Store.

City Hunter: Episode 1
by | May 26, 2011 | 236 Comments
