Pinocchio teases small-town high school romance
by | October 30, 2014 | 72 Comments
Okay, the second teaser for SBS’s upcoming Wednesday-Thursday drama Pinocchio is a step in the right direction — at least it contains a tidbit of story information and actually features the heroine of our story, which is more than I could say for the first teaser (possibly a thing we should pretend didn’t happen. Except... More »

Park Shin-hye headlines Pinocchio as reporter who can’t lie
by | September 4, 2014 | 164 Comments
Ah, so now we have the reason behind Pinocchio’s title — the drama features a heroine who can’t tell a lie. She’s a character who suffers from Pinocchio syndrome (I think it’s called different things, but they mean a condition where your body shows a physical sign whenever you lie), which makes her hiccup whenever...

Okay, this is one reunion I’m rooting for in dramaland: Lee Jong-seok is considering a reunion with the PD-writer team behind I Hear Your Voice, for their new fall drama Pinocchio.

Movie Review: Miracle in Cell No. 7
by | March 10, 2014 | 76 Comments
Out of last year’s biggest hits, perhaps none is as much of a household name as Miracle in Cell No. 7, which was not only the highest-grossing film of the year but also the third highest-grossing domestic film of all time, trailed only by The Thieves and The Host. No small feat, that’s for sure.... More »

Heirs: Episode 20 (Final)
by | December 12, 2013 | 455 Comments
The end is here. Not that it’s a surprise, but the Heirs finale doesn’t step outside its prescribed frame for even a second, so mostly what we get is an hour to wrap everything up neatly and send our characters on their way. Truthfully it wasn’t really a drama that had twenty episodes of story... More »

Heirs: Episode 19
by | December 11, 2013 | 202 Comments
Finale week means we’re wrapping up loose ends, and one nice side effect is that angst steps aside and lets cuteness and humor a moment in the spotlight. I won’t say it didn’t take forever and a day (or that everything makes the most sense, plotwise), but neither am I about to look a gift... More »
