Park Shin-hye headlines Pinocchio as reporter who can’t lie
by | September 4, 2014 | 162 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...

Lee Jong-seok and Park Shin-hye courted for Pinocchio
by | August 21, 2014 | 152 Comments
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. It might actually wash out the part of my brain that went mushy trying to hold onto some semblance of sanity while watching Doctor... More »

Movie Review: Miracle in Cell No. 7
by | March 10, 2014 | 74 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 »

2013 SBS Drama Awards

New Year’s Eve was the big night for the SBS Drama Awards (and KBS as well, which will be up next), and Lee Bo-young came out on top for one of the year’s unexpected successes, I Hear Your Voice. (I say unexpected because the drama was given its timeslot hastily when another show fell through... More »

Heirs: Episode 20 (Final)
by | December 12, 2013 | 454 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 »

Heirs: Episode 18
by | December 5, 2013 | 377 Comments
Breaking up is hard to do, especially when you’re not really broken up. Our couple spends a lot of energy in being apart-but-together and together-but-apart, and I can’t even tell you which is worse. Let’s just say there are lots of tears. But in better news, when Tyrannical Daddy digs his heels in further, it... More »

Everybody, meet Rock Bottom. Rock Bottom, everybody. He’ll be sticking around with us for the next hour, making sure Tan suffers appropriately for daring to dream the impossible dream, which is to say, a relationship with the girl he likes. Too bad Despot Dad has other things on the agenda, like tyranny and misery for... More »

We’ve been building up to this showdown all series long, and with futures—and hearts—on the line, the stakes climb ever higher in this game of family strife. It’s a bit of... More »
