Admittedly, these aren’t much in the way of promo stills, but something’s still better than nothing, right? (But seriously, SBS. Step it up for Alice in Cheongdam-dong. Your promo photos have been lackluster, not to mention few and far between.) You’d think that with such a lineup of stars—Moon Geun-young! Park Shi-hoo! Kim Ji-suk!—they’d be... More »
