Everything gets tied into a neat bow as our characters go through the wringer trying to prevent a broadcasting accident. What goes around comes around, it seems, and Anthony is made to choose between saving himself or saving his drama. For anyone who knows Anthony, the decision he makes shouldn’t come as a surprise.

King of Dramas: Episode 17

There’s only one episode this week before next week’s finale, as our drama within a drama tackles a last-minute extension and live shooting, which should all sound very familiar. That’s all stuff I’d like to see, but we instead get taken for a ride as Anthony goes the noble you-know-what route with our World Boys... More »

King of Dramas: Episode 16

There’s plenty of cute and winsome moments for our developing love story, and a healthy dose of some eye-opening drama not related to our drama-within-a-drama to go with it. Hyun-min finally realizes that he might just be awful at what he does while Anthony proves to be awesome at what he does. Come to think... More »

It’s like there’s a little extra magic in this episode, though I’m not quite sure if that’s due to the floodgate of feelings becoming more or less open, or whether this cast’s sparkling chemistry has just gotten… More sparkly? Is that a thing? I can say my love for Anthony took another exponential leap, because... More »

Dramaland: The gift that keeps on giving [Year in Review, Part 5]
by | December 24, 2012 | 142 Comments
If there’s anything that Santa has taught me over the years (other than a musical mnemonic about single-malt scotches), it’s that Christmas is a time of giving. Dramaland gives us so much throughout the year, that I thought it was finally time for me to stop being a grinch and give back, out of the... More »

This show, I tell you. It’s just so sweet, warm, and full of feel-good moments and heart. Not to mention copious amount of laughter, since Hyun-min encounters a bad case of foot-in-mouth that lands him in hot water with his girlfriend and his co-star, which in turn lands him in the middle of a press...

It’s time to run into some regular production woes, which include some above average fare, what with our leads hugging soup barrels and each other to survive a chilly night and a fire burning out of control on set. I’ll take any of these conflicts any day over Empire Productions/World Productions power struggles, so bring... More »

King of Dramas confirms extension
by | December 17, 2012 | 82 Comments
Finally! I’ve been waiting on confirmation of the King of Dramas extension ever since SBS suggested that it was likely to happen, but things were oddly quiet over the past couple weeks. The silence was particularly noticeable because its successor drama Yawang has been swinging into production mode, and all reports were keeping its premiere... More »
