I KNOW! Who’s excited? The drama, based on a novel... More »

There’s a new weekend drama on the horizon, and while weekenders aren’t always the most exciting offerings, this one has my attention because of the pedigree of the folks involved. I’m a little perplexed but definitely intrigued about Cheongdam-dong Alice, the SBS series slated to follow Five Fingers, which is a week from its own... More »

by | August 18, 2011 | 121 Comments
More songs! And this time, they’re sung by some of your favorite (or not) actors. This list is hardly comprehensive, and I picked mostly those actors who weren’t singers first. (And if they were, they are generally stars who are not known for their singing, despite their origins. See: Kim Kang-woo’s awesome beginnings as a... More »

It’s too bad that Hyun Bin was missing from the 47th Baeksang Arts Awards, since he and his drama picked up a bunch of awards. (Alas, there’s that whole mandatory military thing.) Not only did he grab a Daesang in the TV portion (film Daesang went to Lee Byung-heon for his thriller I Saw the... More »

Hurricane Mary, coming through! This drama goes out the same way it began…totally insane. But you know, by now it’d be even MORE schizophrenic if the drama did a total 180 and started to make sense. So it’s best we go out with as much crazy as we started with. It’s time to embrace the... More »

Mary Stayed Out All Night: Episode 15
by | December 27, 2010 | 242 Comments
This episode is all Mu-gyul. Unfortunately, it’s all Mu-gyul being petulant and mopey, which tends to put a damper on things. I’ve already lost my mind trying to follow the wacky logic of this drama, and the last episode pushed girlfriday over the edge. Which means… now it’s time for Mu-gyul to lose his hold... More »
