by | April 21, 2014 | 74 Comments
A new Doctor Stranger teaser is out! …and to be quite honest, I don’t know that I get it. It’s certainly a… diverse preview — we start out with a light, cheeky vibe as Lee Jong-seok bickers with a disdainful Kang So-ra, then calls a bunch of doctors quacks. Then things get serious on the... More »

Just in case you were wondering what geeeeeeenius Lee Jong-seok looks like, here are some stills from his new drama Doctor Stranger. Hm, I dunno, he looks a lot like regular Lee Jong-seok to me–that is to say, beautiful and slightly puppyish–but the lab coat helps. Should we get him some glasses too, or is... More »

Confirmations are in for Jin Se-yeon (Age of Feeling), who was offered the lead in SBS’s spring Monday-Tuesday drama Doctor Stranger opposite Lee Jong-seok. She’s signed on to play the heroine (and her doppelganger, naturally), which means the show finally has a leading foursome secured.

Doctor Stranger is the upcoming SBS miniseries about a North Korean refugee who defects to South Korea and becomes a (geeeenius) doctor (really).

This turned out to be more of a comedy than I expected, not that I’m complaining of course. The trailer for Park Bo-young and Lee Jong-seok’s ’80s youth movie Hot Blooded Youth shows a light, quirky bent to the story of a gangster girl who laments that the ladies’ man on campus doesn’t see her...

by | December 5, 2013 | 87 Comments
Yay, Lee Jong-seok (I Hear Your Voice) might be coming back to dramaland! Thank goodness because I really really missed him for those 2.5 seconds he was gone. The downside is that he’s considering a medical drama, which doesn’t excite me in the least. But who knows; this one’s got a premise that might shake... More »
