Is it the year of the split personality or what? Kim Soo-hyun (You From Another Star) is reportedly considering a drama titled Dr. Frankenstein as his next project, where the lead character is a brilliant doctor with multiple personality disorder. Does… he also create a monster that goes on the rampage that he must destroy?... More »

2014 Korea Drama Awards
by | October 1, 2014 | 189 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. The awards ceremony was held in the... More »

50th Baeksang Arts Awards

Spread the love around must’ve been this year’s mantra at the 50th annual Baeksang Awards, where the (somewhat) best of both film and television come to pick up shiny trophies. Once you get past the initial Huh, what, why? of the nominee list, the winners list is no surprise. There wasn’t a big sweep by... More »

Yeo Jin-gu dealt a blow by Fist Fighting
by | April 10, 2014 | 92 Comments
I feel really bad for Yeo Jin-gu (Potato Star 2013QR3, Hwa-yi) – he’s been let go from the blockbuster production Fist Fighting, and his reps are hopping mad. The movie, a futuristic martial arts thriller which will be written and helmed by director Park Kwang-hyun (Welcome to Dongmakgol), has been mired in issues since we... More »

by | February 27, 2014 | 468 Comments
It’s overrrrrrrr, we can all resume breathing now. You From Another Star ended today, and I admit to going into the finale still wondering how the heck they would get our couple out of their cosmic fix. There are a few spots I think got glossed over, but I’m left with a solid appreciation for... More »

You From Another Star: Episode 19
by | February 20, 2014 | 316 Comments
Way to tug the heart and draw out the tears. While I would say the overall trajectory of this episode is rather expected, the drama drops a few surprises in our laps, namely in showing us just exactly how deep the love runs. Min-joon certainly takes the adage Actions speak louder than words to extremes,... More »

You From Another Star: Episode 18
by | February 19, 2014 | 208 Comments
This episode really made my day: So sweet, so heart-twisting, and so full of random hilarity to take the edge off the pain. That’s a recipe for a fantastic episode. More than the one-off jokes, though, I love that the comedy in this show functions narratively as well as to provide laughs, providing character moments... More »

Happy birthday to our favorite dramaland alien: Kim Soo-hyun turned 26 over the weekend, while filming his current drama You From Another Star. (His boss/manager/sunbae Bae Yong-joon, who runs Keyeast (which reps Kim), reportedly sent a lunch for 150 to the set of the drama, serving up seaweed soup (birthday soup).) Also, that cake topper...

You From Another Star: Episode 17

Big decisions are made and directions chosen, leading this episode to its all-time high rating of 27%. We also get a sassy cameo from a familiar character (random drama crossover!) to throw in some laughs, not that Chun Song-yi has any trouble supplying those on her own. I do love that even as Song-yi has... More »

You From Another Star: Episode 16
by | February 12, 2014 | 240 Comments
This episode is chock full of adorable, which is on one hand hugely entertaining, but on the other hand also unsettling because giving a couple happy moments with so many episodes left to go means that pain can’t be far behind. Time is ticking in earnest now, and has a way of putting a damper... More »
