Lucky Romance: Episode 2
by | May 26, 2016 | 51 Comments
The conflict is established, the characters are put in place, and now it’s time to let them clash and see what happens. There’s some comedy, as we would expect, but actually it feels that the character development is hewing more natural than screwball for the most part. It’s not what I expected from such an...

Lucky Romance: Episode 1
by | May 25, 2016 | 124 Comments
Yay, it’s cute and funny! Huzzah. I was scared that MBC’s new romantic comedy Lucky Romance might not live up to expectations, but the series is off to a strong start, with endearing characters, a snappy pace, and a good balance of humor and heart from both our leads. It’s written and directed with a... More »

Lucky Romance’s charm-filled (literally) promo posters
by | May 23, 2016 | 55 Comments
Aw, the more I see of Lucky Romance, the more I really, really hope it pulls off the cute, vibrant spirit it’s touting from its promotional materials. It’s difficult to know for sure because the teasers so far have been pretty brief and I can’t really get a feel for what the show itself will... More »

Lucky Romance gets ready to test its fortunes and fates
by | May 20, 2016 | 68 Comments
MBC’s rom-com drama Lucky Romance is all set to premiere next week, and while I knew this was coming, it feels a little sudden to me, in a good way. We’ve had a steady trickle of promos (teasers, stills) but not really a big promo push, and I find it refreshing to head into a... More »

Hwang Jung-eum traps her tiger man in Lucky Romance
by | May 17, 2016 | 55 Comments
I have to say, it’s pretty refreshing to meet a drama heroine who blurts, “Just sleep with me once!” Of course, she has her reasons for being so forward — Lucky Romance is the new MBC rom-com about a woman so obsessed with luck, fortune, and fate that she takes it very seriously when a... More »

Lee Soo-hyuk, Lee Chung-ah complete Lucky Romance’s love square
by | April 7, 2016 | 70 Comments
Confirmations are in for the second leads of MBC’s new romantic comedy Lucky Romance, which will reportedly diverge a little from its webtoon source material to create more of a traditional drama love square. I take that to mean that Lee Soo-hyuk (Neighborhood Hero) and Lee Chung-ah (Vampire Detective) will get bigger roles, which I’m... More »

Lee Soo-hyuk up for second lead in Lucky Romance
by | April 1, 2016 | 37 Comments
Aw, it’s not a lead role, but I do think I’d like to see Lee Soo-hyuk joining the MBC romantic-comedy series Lucky Romance, since I tend to like him best in supporting roles anyway — his most recent turn in OCN’s comic action-thriller Neighborhood Hero was super endearing, plus he made an unhinged vampire compelling...

Neighborhood Hero: Episode 1
by | January 24, 2016 | 132 Comments
There was a burst of new content on cable this weekend, and Neighborhood Hero (also called Local Hero) was OCN’s offering, marking the channel’s shift to the twice-a-week format. They’ve had a number of successes in the once-a-week action thriller format—that’s been their bread and butter—but are trying something new with this Saturday-Sunday scheduling. Off... More »

2015 MBC Drama Awards
by | December 30, 2015 | 105 Comments
Do you think that if Ji Sung hadn’t been awarded the Daesang at the 2015 MBC Drama Awards, there’d have been actual mutiny? Not that there was much question that he would get it, but MBC has figured out ways to make head-scratcher decisions before. Like, say, suddenly increasing the number of award categories and...

Justice, pennies, and rules in OCN’s Neighborhood Hero
by | December 30, 2015 | 46 Comments
I am really feelin’ the dryly funny vibe of these Neighborhood Hero teasers: The show has all the slick stylishness of OCN’s dark action dramas, but the fun spirit of a tongue-in-cheek caper. I love when a thing deflates its own ego for a laugh. Here we’ve got several more teasers to round out the... More »
