Here’s some bad news for the production of MBC’s sageuk drama Goddess of Fire Jung-yi, which recently had an on-set accident when a piece of camera equipment fell onto lead actress Moon Geun-young’s face and injured her eye. Ouch. She had gone to the emergency room following the accident on Wednesday and returned to the... More »

First Impressions: Goddess of Fire Jung-yi, Empire of Gold
by | July 2, 2013 | 123 Comments
There’s a new set of dramas that just premiered, so I thought I’d weigh in with some very brief first impressions after catching the opening episodes of each. The ratings landscape has pretty much evened out across the three Monday-Tuesday dramas: MBC’s Goddess of Fire Jung-yi came in with a marginal first-place lead at 10.7%... More »

Here’s a peek at Moon Geun-young and Lee Sang-yoon in their new MBC sageuk Goddess of Fire Jung-yi, set to premiere in two weeks. I never thought I’d say this, but the more cutesy stuff I see for this show, the less I’m interested in it. Either Moon Geun-young has outgrown the cutesy, or this... More »

There have been rumblings about Moon Geun-young (Alice in Cheongdam-dong) taking on a new historical drama, and it looks like the deal is shaping up — it’s still in “considering favorably” stages, but if contract signing goes off without a hitch, Moon will star in the new MBC sageuk Goddess of Fire Jung-yi, set to...

Alice in Cheongdam-dong: Episode 16 (Final)
by | January 29, 2013 | 148 Comments
I really enjoyed the last episode, because it was satisfying in showing us the growth of the characters over some time without feeling too rushed. Alice in Cheongdam-dong was a bumpy but short ride, and somehow the writer still managed to make a point about class and wealth in Korean society, as well as poke holes... More »

Alice in Cheongdam-dong: Episode 15
by | January 28, 2013 | 86 Comments
This was a very Seung-jo-centric episode. Seung-jo’s been used by three women for monetary purposes, so it’s high time he try to sort out his issues rather than run away from them. But it doesn’t stop him from being maddeningly self-centered about his situation, as if he’s the only one whose feelings matter. He does... More »

Alice in Cheongdam-dong: Episode 14

Lots of yelling. Lots of heartbreak. Lots of satisfaction. For me, this week truly redeemed last week’s. Even though I’m averse to watching characters have their sufferings dragged out for several episodes, I do hope to watch Seung-jo and Se-kyung suffer for a bit. If we’re going to build up this little white lie into... More »
