MBC’s over, KBS is to come (on this site, I mean; the actual awards were held concurrently with this one), so now we turn to the 2012 SBS Drama Awards. Y’know, I was a little surprised when I came to the SBS show, having expected more titles in the winners roster. Because while MBC can... More »

by | October 15, 2012 | 85 Comments
A solid start to SBS’s newest late Goryeo-era sageuk, the premiere of The Great Seer (aka Daepoongsoo) delivered on setting an epic table for future conflict to come.

Damn, that is one epic headdress. I’m not that wowed by the posters for the upcoming fusion sageuk The Great Seer (Daepoongsoo), but the stills of Ji Jin-hee as the savage warrior are kinda rockin’ my socks off.

Hon: Episode 1
by | August 9, 2009 | 56 Comments
I was hesitant to watch MBC’s new series Hon because I’m a big wimp when it comes to horror, but I was curious enough to give it a shot. And I found that while it has its jumpy moments, it’s not actually so scary that I can’t watch it. The fright comes more from ambiance... More »
