by | April 2, 2015 | 10 Comments
Find out where it hurts and why. Fix it. That’s our assignment this week, but it turns out not to be as straightforward as it sounds. Yeol devotes himself to getting to the bottom of Sa-rang’s problem, which isn’t quite what he expects. But we’re in for a taste of crisis, as nothing goes to... More »

Superdaddy Yeol: Episode 4
by | March 27, 2015 | 40 Comments
It’s an episode where nothing goes to plan for anyone, and like Yeol, I’m getting mixed messages. Do Mi-rae’s ends justify her means? Meanwhile, Yeol has to adjust to his new housemates, whose lifestyle is pretty much the antithesis of his, and everyone finds that it takes more than living together to make a family.... More »

Having decided that Yeol is the only man with the qualifications to become Sa-rang’s father, Mi-rae sets out to convince Yeol of the same thing. There’s nowhere he can hide from her, but from the way he tries you’d think she was a gumiho out to seduce him and devour his liver. There are a... More »

Superdaddy Yeol: Episode 2
by | March 20, 2015 | 20 Comments
I’m in. If the opening episodes are anything to go by, we can enjoy the same light hand and sharp humor that characterized Marriage Not Dating. Mi-rae’s diagnosis brings an undercurrent of gravity and loneliness that makes it easy to root for her. It helps that she’s a badass, and you know what’s better? So... More »

Welcome to Superdaddy Yeol, the webtoon adaptation in which a mother with only a year to live sets out to turn her deadbeat ex into the perfect father. It’s a sad premise and the first episode doesn’t shrink from it, but there is hope (and a little humor) to be found as well. With his... More »

The loser gets a second shot at love in Superdaddy Yeol
by | March 5, 2015 | 28 Comments
The teasers for this show are really funny, but tvN also has a habit of reeling me in with awesome teasers that don’t always match the show. I think in Superdaddy Yeol’s case, the tone should hold up, as we watch Lee Dong-gun (Mi-rae’s Choice) go from a slacker bachelor to responsible superdaddy material in... More »

Filming commences on tvN’s Superdaddy Yeol
by | February 24, 2015 | 32 Comments
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 »

Hm, so although Lee Dong-gun ended up turning down the current tvN romance Heart to Heart, he’ll now be headlining the drama to follow that: Superdaddy Yeol, based on (what else?) a webtoon of the same name. Also cast is Lee Yuri, who recently took home a Daesang for her villainness role in MBC’s hit... More »
