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...

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

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 »

Ooh, here’s our first look at upcoming cable action drama Neighborhood Hero, which held its first shoots on October 6 and has now released the stills. The drama comes from Chuno and Basketball PD Kwak Jung-hwan, and since he’s a director with a strong sense of style, I’m curious to see if working for OCN... More »

Scholar Who Walks the Night: Episode 20 (Final)
by | September 10, 2015 | 324 Comments
It did seem to take an awfully long time to get here (some weeks were longer than others, to be sure), but now that it’s time to say goodbye to scholar-nim, I find that I’ve grown pretty attached. Or is that just the Lee Jun-ki Effect? At least Scholar Who Walks the Night knew to... More »

Scholar Who Walks the Night: Episode 19
by | September 9, 2015 | 117 Comments
The show sure is stepping it up for its last couple of weeks; I’m really pleased with the flow of emotions and relationship developments in the past couple of episodes, heading into our finale tomorrow. Scholar Who Walks the Night certainly wasn’t without its missteps and had a pretty wide range of ups and downs,... More »
