Based on the first teaser, I’d guess that Who Are You—School 2015 is going to be lighter than its predecessors in the School franchise, even though we’ve been told repeatedly that this year’s spin is the mystery genre angle.

I’m not sure if Nam Joo-hyuk is quite leading man material yet, but I guess that’s the beauty of the School series — it takes newbies and spits them out stars. The 21-year-old model has been making quite the splash on cable in the JTBC variety show I’m Going To School, along with a supporting... More »

She’s a talented budding actor and good enough to handle leading roles herself (though there just aren’t that many available for precocious 15-year-olds), though for now... More »

by | October 1, 2014 | 191 Comments
The Korea Drama Awards (part of the two-week Korea Drama Festival that kicked off today) isn’t one of the bigger award ceremonies around, but being that it’s drama-focused and inclusive of both broadcast and cable programs, it’s worth a look—even if the winners list does seem rather scattershot.
