by | February 5, 2016 | 32 Comments
Wow. That’s what I call an evocative poster. The premise of upcoming tvN drama Memory may sound familiar in light of other dramas with similar themes (not to mention titles) — a man losing his memory, getting in touch with what’s important in his life — but one look at Lee Sung-min standing alone with...

It’s no wonder if you don’t, since it’s not to be confused with the upcoming Yoo Seung-ho drama Remember, which is also not to be confused with Jang Nara cop drama I Remember You earlier this year.

by | November 3, 2015 | 54 Comments
They should just give Lee Sung-min his own parking space at tvN, don’tcha think? He and Sung Dong-il could high-five each other on their way in and out of the network’s high-profile shows.

Yoo Ah-in takes up the sword in Six Flying Dragons
by | August 25, 2015 | 90 Comments
The first teaser is out for SBS’s historical drama Six Flying Dragons, and it looks pretty great—all cinematic and thudding with suspense. The drama feels exciting and epic, not like your father’s typical stuffy old sageuk (or fine, my father’s stuffy old sageuk—he likes ’em extra-boring and historically accurate), that’s for sure. Six Flying Dragons... More »

Hwajeong: Episode 1
by | April 17, 2015 | 32 Comments
Hwajeong (or Splendid Politics, depending on your tolerance level) premiered earlier this week on MBC, and hits the ground running—no small feat considering that it comparatively has all the time in the world to tell the story of Gwanghae, the man who became king, and presumably a whole bunch of other things. My inability to... More »
