Yoon Shi-yoon Hooray! Yoon Shi-yoon (Prime Minister and I) will be released from military service (in the Marine Corps, no less) on January 27. His contract with his current agency, Taxi Entertainment, is expiring and the press is anticipating that he’ll branch off on his own. While I might side-eye others starting up their own agency,...

It’s only a two-episode drama, but SBS has announced an airdate later this month for Snow Lotus, a fantasy melodrama starring Ji Jin-hee (Blood, I Have a Lover) and Lee Jia (Thrice Married Woman) that traverses dreams and reality and apparently also the time-space continuum, since the love story incorporates a timeline a thousand years...

While the articles were supposed to be about his cameo in the upcoming film Lucid Dream, I was more struck by the realization that Yoochun (Girl Who Sees Smells) will be heading to the military soon — waaah! He’ll have a bit part in the movie as a character who helps Go Soo, a father... More »

Thrice Married Woman gets one-month extension
by | January 25, 2014 | 47 Comments
Weekend drama Thrice Married Woman isn’t leading in the ratings, so I’m surprised to hear that it has just been granted an eight-episode extension. Not that it’s doing poorly, but its 10% to 13% numbers are modest, and it has been trailing behind MBC’s Gold Rainbow. But perhaps this is the power of having a... More »

Thrice Married Woman’s three-way wedding teaser
by | October 28, 2013 | 42 Comments
Sometimes these concept teasers that are more like commercials for the drama rather than a peek at the actual show are effective, and sometimes they feel like they’re cheating because they’re behind schedule. While SBS’s new weekender Thrice Married Woman is definitely behind schedule with its backstage hijinks, the teaser itself actually doesn’t disappoint. I... More »

So… there’s good news and there’s bad news. The highly anticipated (and equally troubled) new weekender Thrice Married Woman from hit writer Kim Soo-hyun fiiiiiinally has a heroine and a leading cast. I think. Well let’s just hope this one sticks. Lee Jia (Me Too, Flower) is officially signing on to star, after much back... More »

More potential delays for the troubled Thrice Married Woman
by | September 1, 2013 | 54 Comments
javabeans: Okay, Thrice Married Woman. More delays? The show is asking for more time from the station, because, uh, it can’t get its shit together. Otherwise known as casting. In fact it’s hard to tell where they even are with the casting process because there’s so much news about this show, and every actor it’s... More »

Aw, it’s the School 2013 almost-kinda-not-really couple (pictured at top) in the headlines again, although they’re not working together. Lee Jong-seok recently posted a photo (via Twitter-esque site me2day) from the star-studded movie he’s working on (seriously star-studded — we’re talkin’ Song Kang-ho, Lee Jung-jae, Jo Jung-seok, and Kim Hye-soo), The Face Reader. It’s a... More »

There’s a new romantic comedy film in the works by director Hong Ji-young of Naked Kitchen, and she’s looking to reunite with Joo Ji-hoon (Five Fingers) for a third time (she also did some work on the script for Antique Bakery). Exciting, since those are the projects of his that I like most. The new... More »
