If I Could Turn Back Time [Year in Review, Part 4]
by | December 21, 2012 | 155 Comments
My first year-end review! I was so excited for this opportunity that I decided to watch as many dramas as I could in preparation this year, and all but forced myself to doggedly stick with obvious train wrecks because I figured, “Hey, at least it’ll give me something to write about.” If I learned anything,...

by | December 8, 2012 | 263 Comments
Review extravaganza time! I know: Already? It feels like just the other day I was killing myself to corral all my thoughts in coherent fashion in a monster review of 2011’s dramas, and already it’s time to lose sleep wrangling my thoughts together for 2012. Time sure flies when you’re having fun, or old. Guess... More »

Extension for Oohlala Spouses, not for Nice Guy
by | November 6, 2012 | 72 Comments
Good news and not-so-good news? Monday-Tuesday’s Oohlala Spouses looks like it’s getting its extension, while Wednesday-Thursday’s Nice Guy is not. It’s no secret how we feel about extensions ’round these parts (almost universally met with dismay), so I’m not super thrilled about Oohlala getting two more episodes, although I can see how it may be...

Dramas that perform well in their time slots are invariably going to go through a round of will-they-extend-or-won’t-they, but it’s looking like a distinct possibility for KBS’s Monday-Tuesday comedy Oohlala Spouses, starring Kim Jung-eun and Shin Hyun-joon as a married couple who are forced to spend a little time walking around in each other’s bodies....

Oohlala Spouses: Episode 1
by | October 4, 2012 | 85 Comments
For a rollicking comedy, Oohlala Spouses gets a bit of a darker start that nonetheless works out great, especially since we’re dealing with cheating husbands and broken families. It’s a little hard to make that topic a knee slapper right off the bat, but we’ve got a great cast delivering little moments of funny and... More »

by | September 25, 2012 | 70 Comments

Here’s the official poster for the upcoming gender-bendy rom-com Oohlala Spouses, starring Shin Hyun-joon (Gaksital) and Kim Jung-eun (Hanbando, I Am... More »

Oohlala Spouses takes bickering to hilarious extremes
by | September 19, 2012 | 45 Comments
The teaser (and more stills) is out for Oohlala Spouses, the body-swapping romantic comedy series soon to hit KBS, and it looks hysterical. Snarky and fast-flying with the banter should suit this series well. The preview takes the form of a political debate, with Shin Hyun-joon representing husbands nationwide (aka the Husband Party), while wife... More »
