Nice Guy: Episode 6
by | September 28, 2012 | 374 Comments
Feelings become more sincere, at least on one end, which leaves Maru wrestling with his better self and losing while he’s at it. Our star-crossed twisted human beings finally get to hash things out, leaving one thing clear – no one’s going to let go of their grudges any time soon. And if that means... More »

Nice Guy: Episode 5
by | September 27, 2012 | 151 Comments
So good. SO GOOD. I’m still reeling from all the emotional missteps and victories this episode, since Nice Guy has proven that it can deliver its thrills carefully and methodically. Add ‘beautifully’ to that list, because not only is the cast exceptionally pretty (Song! Joong! Ki!), so is the cinematography. The directing hand in this... More »

Nice Guy: Episode 4
by | September 21, 2012 | 199 Comments
Wires get crossed and double-crossed as we get manipulation going on with every side, which is really making it hard to tell where playtime ends and real feelings begin. If there’s one thing I love unreservedly about this show, aside from all the things I love unreservedly, it’s every interaction between Eun-ki and her Wicked... More »

Nice Guy: Episode 3
by | September 20, 2012 | 200 Comments
There’s plenty of win to go around, but possibly more so than that is the subtly awesome subtext undercutting each scene (almost more present than the actual text). We’re stuck in this whirlwind of wondering whether to trust what we’re seeing, and whether characters are being sincere or manipulative. I love that what we’re seeing... More »

Nice Guy: Episode 2

Who doesn’t like a heroine who can eat fried chicken and still do her job all from a hospital bed? Eun-ki’s really winning me over with her sass, even though little hints reveal that she’s not just the workaholic ice princess she tries to be. It makes for some really lively scenes whenever she comes... More »

Nice Guy: Episode 1

There’s No Such Thing As Nice Guys is off to a fantastic start, and hits the ground running. The production feels assured and comfortable as it takes us by the hand and leads us into the hell of our characters’ own making. How far would you go for love? How much is too much? I... More »

Man, it’s really been a Song Joong-ki week. Not that I’m complaining, mind you. That would be nutty. He’s just got two projects in the pipeline at the same time, so there’s more of The Pretty to go around. Plenty for everyone! Here are the official posters for his new drama There’s No Such Thing...

Nice Guy gets its revenge on
by | September 1, 2012 | 161 Comments
It’s been a while since we’ve checked in on upcoming melodrama Nice Guy (full title: There’s No Such Thing as Nice Guys), the last of this season’s dramas to premiere because of Gaksital’s extension. Perhaps it’ll benefit from having more lead-in time than its competition, and it certainly won’t hurt to follow the time slot’s... More »

Song Joong-ki and Park Shi-yeon cuddle up for Nice Guy
by | August 7, 2012 | 63 Comments
Aw, well now I just want to root for this couple, even though I know we’re doomed to go down in flames. But I suppose that’s the mantra for a twisted revenge melodrama’s audience: BRING ON THE PAIN. Here’s our first look at the Song Joong-ki and Park Shi-yeon pairing in the upcoming melodrama Nice... More »

Following up our first look at Nice Guy with stills of leading man Song Joong-ki, now we have leading lady Moon Chae-won, shedding her image of youthful innocence to play a mean woman who’s described as possessing a “heart of ice.” Hm, at all this while I was thinking she was the victim in this...

Song Joong-ki stills from Nice Guy
by | July 27, 2012 | 70 Comments
Song Joong-ki. Also, sweaty Song Joong-ki. There you have ’em: two reasons to post these new stills for KBS drama Chicken Man, urg, I mean Nice Guy, despite the fact that the stills are rather uninformative and unexceptional. Though I suppose there are a bevy of indignant fangirls and fanjummas ready to protest that the... More »
