The producers of Nine: Nine Time Travels and Queen In-hyun’s Man have been planning a new drama series, which is notable for being produced as a three-season show, especially since true multi-season dramas are still pretty rare in dramaland.

Good news: the PD-writer team behind Nine and Queen Inhyun’s Man is returning with a new drama for cable network tvN. This time they’re setting their sights on a three-season epic, based (very, very loosely) on the Dumas novel The Three Musketeers. Only it’s set in Joseon. I said loosely, didn’t I? In Korean, Three... More »

The one good thing about working one day a year and outsourcing most of your menial labor to elves is that it gives you plenty of time to watch dramas. This year I discovered that I had watched them all wrong before, because when you watch with an open mind, you can gain valuable life... More »

It’s been an interesting year for the world of dramas, hasn’t it? Usually any given year will at least give us that one epic drama we can all rally around like a big ol’ communal campfire, allowing us to share s’mores of our feels filled with chocolate (abs) and, okay, maybe this analogy is getting...

Cheers to Dramaland 2013 [Year In Review, Part 1]
by | December 9, 2013 | 342 Comments
Another year has flown by, and it’s time to look back, reminisce, and assess how 2013 treated us in dramaland. And in taking a trip down memory lane (sure it’s a short lane, but so’s the memory), it strikes me that 2013 was pretty good in churning out a steady diet of watchable dramas, but... More »

Nine: Series review (spoiler free)
by | November 25, 2013 | 91 Comments
Better late than never, right? I caught tvN’s time-travel series Nine: Nine Time Travels when it first aired in March, and had a generally favorable response: good actors, solid directing, interesting backdrop, a story with potential. But while they were positive impressions, they were not particularly strong ones—it was well-executed, but a little slow to... More »
