First script read for Scholar Who Walks the Night
by | May 18, 2015 | 76 Comments
Script reads usually aren’t that exciting, save for the fact that in this instance, there was a time just last month when I was convinced this show would never finish casting and get to this point. I mean, there’s casting drama and then there’s Scholar Who Walks the Night. But hey, we’re here now, and... More »

Yes, please, can we make this happen? We’ve gone through a lot of casting possibilities for Scholar Who Walks the Night, but if ever I wanted one to stick, it would be this one: Kim So-eun is the latest leading lady in contention, and is “positively considering” the sageuk fantasy romance set in the Joseon...

It feels good to reach the end of... More »

It looks like finale week just may give us a strong finish to Joseon Gunman, which I’d worried about because I found last week’s episodes to be a bit plodding. It may be a finale tinged with bittersweetness, but that’s something I embrace; it’s not about winning everything and suffering nothing, but finding a way... More »
