Nine, Queen Inhyun’s Man team returns with Three Musketeers
by | May 5, 2014 | 64 Comments
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 »

There wasn’t even any hair-pulling, and only one person lost an eye! It’s been a great year for K-dramas and an... More »

Dramaland: The gift that keeps on giving [Year In Review, Part 5]
by | December 24, 2012 | 141 Comments
If there’s anything that Santa has taught me over the years (other than a musical mnemonic about single-malt scotches), it’s that Christmas is a time of giving. Dramaland gives us so much throughout the year, that I thought it was finally time for me to stop being a grinch and give back, out of the... More »

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,...

Looking at the buffet table of 2012, I’m left in awe at the vast array of possible selections before me. The sheer number of choices is growing every year and I feel like I have to taste-test the premiere and make a quick decision of whether to keep digging in or move on. Sometimes you... More »

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 »

Queen In-hyun’s Man: Episode 16 (Final)
by | June 12, 2012 | 557 Comments
This is a show unafraid to explore the darkest parts of itself, taking us down to the depths of separation and emotionally gutting us in the best and most frightening of ways, so that the payoff has never felt more earned or deserved. In short, this episode is like running through an emotional obstacle course... More »

Queen In-hyun’s Man: Episode 15
by | June 8, 2012 | 178 Comments
Awesome. Such a kickass exploration of the consequences of messing with time and fate. So you defeat the baddies and win your freedom and your love. What else is there to fear? As it turns out, a pissed-off mystical talisman is a helluva lot more scary than mere mortals, and more dangerous, especially when it... More »

Queen In-hyun’s Man: Episode 14
by | June 6, 2012 | 194 Comments
This show is going to be the death of me. Our hero is faced with the choice of saving his own life or bringing the baddies to justice, and we’re left wondering: Can he do both? Seemingly insurmountable odds and sky-high stakes make this show a cut above the rest, and this episode combines all... More »

Queen In-hyun’s Man: Episode 13
by | June 4, 2012 | 181 Comments
You just can’t mess with time: This gives our hero a new hurdle to overcome, and me a few more gray hairs. (The nerves that come with earnestly wishing your characters well when you actually care about them can age you prematurely, I swear.) Another twist sends our scales of fortune tipping one way, then... More »
