There have been some rumblings about Kim Hee-sun (Faith) and Lee Seo-jin (Grandpas Over Flowers) headlining KBS’s new weekend drama Wonderful Season (the rumors began when Kim Hee-sun left her variety show Hwashin to focus on acting), but it’s only now that the drama is starting to lock down its cast. Wonderful Season is the... More »

by | June 10, 2013 | 60 Comments
They might as well have called SBS’s new series Empire of Gold Chaser The Chaser: Bizarro Land, because that’s pretty much the secret to the casting — the good guys are bad and the bad guys are good. Here’s a collection of stills from the next installment of the epic ambition wars between the haves... More »

Summer blockbuster The Front Line opens to high expectations
by | July 21, 2011 | 25 Comments
Yesterday’s Go Soo post had me looking closer at his new movie, The Front Line, a high-budget blockbuster war film that’s expected to do big business this summer. The plot caught my attention with its suspenseful, uneasy premise, and the creds aren’t so bad, either: Director Jang Hoon steered thrillers Rough Cut and Secret Reunion... More »

Lie To Me: Episode 6
by | May 24, 2011 | 341 Comments
Aaaack, this drama is so sadistic – I feel like a yo-yo. Ninety-nine percent of the time, I’m just watching super passively, because there’s nothing that happens that’s unexpected or new. We just keep circling one plot point over and over again, in slightly different iterations. But then one thing happens to jerk me back... More »

Lie To Me: Episode 5

The lie’s in full effect now, and with it come the shenanigans of perpetrating the farce, with a few teeny signs hinting at the budding attraction despite/because of the lie. Frankly I thought the lie-induced hilarity would be more, well, hilarious, but I hope that the things set up in this episode will play out... More »

Yay, the brothers meet! And it’s not only cute, but I’m finally getting emotionally invested. It’s actually the brothers’ relationship that ends up pulling me in, go figure. Glad they didn’t go melodrama-on-melodrama with them, despite the tragic love triangle setup. It’s not without some melodramatic flair, but it’s kept realistic in its core relationship,... More »

Week 2 of Lie To Me brings us an extension of the lie, and although it doesn’t bring a whole lot of surprises, it’s the chemistry of the cast that has me coming back for more. Ah-jung is sure to have more crackling chemistry with Ki-joon in future episodes when their lovelines really get tangled... More »

I suppose there are worse things in the world than a hottie on either arm. Amiright? The chemistry is great. Problem is, it’s there with BOTH brothers… setting us up for a world of pain down the road. We’re still in paint-by-numbers territory with this drama, and it’s possible that Show will just take up...
