What a cute poster for Superdaddy Yeol, which gives us the main characters in a nutshell: competent Mom (Lee Yuri) with a precocious kid (Lee Re) has to lead (or maybe drag) the good-natured but rough-around-the-edges hero (Lee Dong-gun) into becoming the titular superdad. The copy on the poster is from the daughter’s perspective, lamenting,... More »

Awkward family bonding for Superdaddy Yeol
by | February 18, 2015 | 43 Comments
I wasn’t sure I could see Lee Dong-gun playing a scraggly (albeit well-meaning) loafer type (he’s so pretty and chic!), but I love how well he pulls it off in the first teaser for Superdaddy Yeol, even if it’s barely a thirty-second glimpse of the character. I’d love for him to get a solid, endearing... More »

Also cast is Lee Yuri, who recently took home a Daesang for her villainness role in MBC’s hit... More »

It’s the end of this crazy time-travel-but-really-alternate-realities wormhole where some things are left the same while other things are changed.

I’m… still not sure as to what exactly happened in this penultimate episode; it rather feels like I plummeted into a supermassive black hole and ended up in a different universe with disengaged characters who hold grudges even after learning the truth and an assumption of each other’s feelings lets rumors fly about the workplace...

I love this family. I could watch them bicker and tease and show how much they actually care for each other all day if I could, because at least Ajumma Mi-rae actually gets through one of their lives. There’s more conflict outside of this family unit, however, as both the broadcasting network and people’s hearts... More »

It’s about time for the truth to come to light, even if those words are accompanied by misunderstood feelings. Our heroine gets a shot at her dream to write her own words, and I’m still digging around for the hope lying somewhere in the bottom of this time-travel box. This hour feels much more like... More »
