Santa Strikes Back! [Year In Review, Part 6]
by | December 25, 2011 | 101 Comments
What the ever-lovin’ reindeer feculence? I get home from my overnight trans-earthian sleigh odyssey, settle back with my hard-earned fifths of whiskey to read up on what I’ve missed in dramaland, and find that they’ve finished the year-end reviews without me? This is an outrage! I know who’s getting their presents revoked this year! Goddamn... More »

The DramaMeter: highly scientific and foolproof [Year in Review, Part 4]
by | December 21, 2011 | 181 Comments
  Wow, another year of dramas, come and gone. Where does the sanity go? I decided that for this year’s review, I would learn to be impartial and precise, and give systematic mathematical ratings for every show. Because numbers are fun.

KBS’s baseball-melodrama series Man of Honor had a disappointing premiere week with a single-digit ratings debut, while last week’s new drama Tree With Deep Roots shot up by almost 10% this week on SBS, and seems like a sure bet to reign in this Wednesday-Thursday timeslot...

A week from its premiere, KBS’s new Wednesday-Thursday drama Man of Honor held its production press conference, with its main cast in attendance: Chun Jung-myung, Park Min-young, and Lee Jang-woo take the main three roles.

Aw. I’ll admit I haven’t been in love with any of Chun Jung-myung‘s roles of late (The Duo, Cinderella’s Sister), but could he look any cuter in his baseball uniform? Here’s a first look at Chun and co-star Lee Jang-woo for their new drama Man of Honor, where they play rival sluggers on a pro... More »

Man of Honor begins shooting with Park Min-young
by | September 24, 2011 | 39 Comments
First shoots commenced with this scene of KBS melo-sports-romance drama Man of Honor, which stars Chun Jung-myung and Park Min-young. Funny how the “man” part of the title refers to heroine’s character rather than the hero; the Korean words used in the title happen to be a puntastic take on the leads’ names, Young-kwang (Honor,...

Actress Park Min-young is still on the set of her current drama City Hunter, but she’s already been cast in her next project. (By the by, doesn’t Park Min-young always star in the crack drama of the year, two years running? That’s some thunder. Perhaps she’ll be three for three before the year is even... More »
