Will Hello Monster finally find its profiler hero in Seo In-gook?
by | April 14, 2015 | 90 Comments
Why can’t a drama hang on to a leading actor these days? Between Hello Monster and Scholar Who Walks the Night (and a half-dozen other spring/summer dramas), I can hardly keep a drama cast straight anymore because it’ll just change on me tomorrow. The last we heard, KBS’s new crime-thriller-meets-rom-com Hello Monster was courting Lee... More »

by | April 10, 2015 | 40 Comments
Ha Woo-jin—I mean, Lee Sang-yoon may be stepping into the lead’s shoes for Hello Monster, the KBS drama that previously extended an offer to Lee Jin-wook (who turned it down) and is also considering (but hasn’t confirmed) Jang Nara, Lee Chun-hee, Choi Won-young, Park Bo-gum, and Exo’s D.O. That’s a lotta people to be on... More »

Liar Game: Episode 10
by | November 20, 2014 | 249 Comments
This is a really dense episode, packed with character revelations and plot twists that are actually revelatory and truthfully twisty, and even though it calls for every ounce of attention you can dedicate to it, it doesn’t fail to reward you for time well spent. So much happens this hour that it’s near impossible to... More »

Liar Game: Episode 9
by | November 19, 2014 | 127 Comments
A hero without confidence is a scary, scary thing, especially when he’s the only one even remotely capable of stopping a villain that’s as deviously bent on spreading anarchy and chaos as Kang Do-young. At least our heroine does an admirable job at filling the void left by Woo-jin’s wounded pride, but soon it’ll be... More »

Liar Game: Episode 8

This episode will get under your skin in the best of ways. Our hero and his archenemy have a battle of wits and wills, which simultaneously manages to be as nail-bitingly intense as it is deeply unsettling. And heartfelt. And fun. But still pretty unnerving. Do-young just seems to have that effect on people sometimes/all... More »

It’s a new week, which means a new round to entice our characters to sell their souls for sweet, sweet dollar bills. We even get an extra dash of intrigue and amusement when everyone’s favorite debt collector gets to participate in the actual game instead of being relegated to the sidelines, not to mention when...

Liar Game: Episode 6

So good. SO GOOD. This is a deceptively touching episode of Liar Game as well as for humanity, since Da-jung’s kindness finally yields some positive results. Of course she had to lie a little to achieve said results, but I wouldn’t call that selling out as much as growing up. Or growing wise(er)? Da-jung could... More »

It’s our heroine’s first round fending for herself, and she’s got a thing or two to learn about when to cut people off. While she takes a pummeling this hour, our hero finds himself on the brink of a major discovery that could change everything. He’s not just a conspiracy theorist with a tin foil... More »

Odds and Ends: The hotness effect
by | November 1, 2014 | 264 Comments
javabeans: Let’s be shallow today, because I want to talk about hot men and I don’t know how to be meaningful about that. girlfriday: Perhaps the meaning isn’t the point! Haven’t you heard that life’s all about the journey? I can’t think of a better reason than that. It’s like they said in Cantabile Tomorrow... More »
