Action-romance hijinks in spy comedy The Spy
by | August 28, 2013 | 42 Comments
Ah, spy rom-coms. They must be a weakness of mine, because I just got excited to see all the promo material for the upcoming movie The Spy, which looks like it’s gonna be a mash-up of lots of familiar spy-action comedy stuff that we’ve seen before but still worth a laugh. The genre may produce... More »

Trailer and stills for Lee Je-hoon’s thriller Ethics of Wrath
by | January 30, 2013 | 25 Comments
Well thank goodness for movies that get released post army enlistment. With Lee Je-hoon away at army and hearts crushed everywhere, there’s nothing like catching him on the big screen to help make the time go by faster. He was smart and shot two films right before enlisting, though don’t we wish it were ten?... More »

2008 MBC Acting Awards
by | December 30, 2008 | 146 Comments
MBC hosted its awards ceremony for the 2008 Acting Awards on December 30. Let me first reiterate that I think these end-of-year broadcast-station awards are mostly meaningless. That said, this year’s Daesangs were TOTAL WEAKSAUCE, MBC. Top honor (the “Daesang” grand prize) went to… Oh, you mean it was split this year? Between Beethoven Virus‘s... More »

by | September 24, 2008 | 13 Comments
The 24th was press preview day for the cast of upcoming movie Sa-kwa [사과, which could mean apple or apology], and while this doesn’t necessarily look like my cup of tea, I do like the actors involved: Moon Sori (Legend), Lee Seon-kyun (White Tower), and Kim Tae-woo (Woman on the Beach). The preview (below) also... More »

You haven’t made it till you’ve got anti-fans
by | January 13, 2008 | 20 Comments
I’d like to sit down for coffee and girlchat with actress Moon Sori. Or knock back a pint of beer, since she seems cool like that. Perhaps there’s a belief that you haven’t really made it as a celebrity till you have anti-fans. Hey, in Hollywoodland, you know you’ve made it when you’ve been satirized... More »

Miscast
by | October 18, 2007 | 16 Comments
Moon Sori in Legend   I haven’t seen many of the dramas mentioned (they’re mostly historical dramas, which I’ve noted is not something I regularly watch). Some of the following reasons are downright silly, but it also seems there’s a grain of truth in some of the grumblings. What do you think? Criticism for Drama... More »

Legend: Episode 3
by | September 18, 2007 | 14 Comments
Just FYI, I’m not necessarily committing to full episode summaries for Legend. I’m not enough into the series to make that kind of commitment, and the recaps are starting to feel a lot like work. So for now, I’m just commenting on the episodes. Episode 3 was far more interesting because the palace intrigues become... More »

Impressions on Legend, Episode 2
by | September 17, 2007 | 25 Comments
My opinion on Legend after its first week of broadcasts (a preview special and three episodes) is one of tentative liking. No matter how people may rave about other historical dramas, my eyes tend to glaze over at some point in disinterest. Which is ironic since I love history. And period movies. But somehow just...

Legend / 태왕사신기
by | September 14, 2007 | 39 Comments
So this week saw the start of the LEGEND (태왕사신기) extravaganza, kicking off with four consecutive days of broadcasting — an introductory special, followed by the first three episodes. Boasting perhaps the grandest scale of any drama to date, extensive special effects, two veteran writers of what are widely regarded to be the two best... More »
