by | December 31, 2012 | 164 Comments
MBC’s over, KBS is to come (on this site, I mean; the actual awards were held concurrently with this one), so now we turn to the 2012 SBS Drama Awards. Y’know, I was a little surprised when I came to the SBS show, having expected more titles in the winners roster. Because while MBC can... More »

2012 Blue Dragon Film Awards
by | November 30, 2012 | 120 Comments
The 2012 Blue Dragon Film Awards were held last night, and now it feels like we’ve entered awards season in earnest, following up on last month’s Grand Bell Awards. There were a few of the same names and titles, but on the whole, I’d say the Blue Dragons were much more in line with what... More »

Girl K got off to a strong start with its action-and-combat-filled first episode, but it gets even better with Episode 2. It was promising right off the bat with its solid acting, strong cinematography, moody ambiance, and fresh action scenes.

Girl K: Episode 1
by | September 2, 2011 | 81 Comments
Pretty badass. Girl K continues the recent trend of cable offerings that take advantage of their format to do what broadcast stations can’t or won’t do, and in this case it’s by going dark, violent, and edgy. But it doesn’t forsake emotion in the name of style, which is key to getting me invested into... More »

Three-part cable movie Girl K premieres this weekend
by | August 25, 2011 | 50 Comments
Is it a movie? Is it a drama? I dunno which classification is more apt for a three-part TV movie airing on cable, but in any case cable channel CGV’s Girl K looks pretty badass. Mixing action and thrills, Girl K is being called the “Korean Nikita,” which automatically piques my interest; I loved the... More »
