2013 MBC Drama Awards
by | December 30, 2013 | 240 Comments
Year-end awards are here! At least the first of the bunch is, with MBC putting on its ceremony the night before SBS and KBS follow suit with theirs. These awards ceremonies are historically more like thank-you gifts to actors than actual acting awards based on strength of performances, and it’s a fact I’ve long accepted... More »

JTBC teases quirky mystery in Your Neighbor’s Wife
by | October 8, 2013 | 38 Comments
JTBC is readying to launch a new Monday-Tuesday show to take the place of handbag-drama-success-story-series Her Legend, and it’s lined up a rather solid cast for Your Neighbor’s Wife. Particularly with the leading ladies, played by two powerhouse actresses: Yeom Jung-ah (Royal Family) and Shin Eun-kyung (Flames of Ambition). The drama centers around two couples... More »

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 »

Shin Eun-kyung and Kim Jung-tae star in new film
by | November 1, 2011 | 36 Comments
Shin Eun-kyung (Flames of Desire) will be making a comeback to the big screen opposite one of my favorite rising stars of late, Kim Jung-tae (Can’t Lose, Miss Ripley). I say rising not because he’s new, since Kim has been a supporting actor for many a moon, but because his star is rising only now... More »

2010 MBC Drama Awards

It’s time for each broadcast station to put on their end-of-year awards. The MBC Drama Awards are first of the bunch, and man, Kim Nam-joo must be peeved. She finally gets her Daesang — and it goes shared, with Han Hyo-joo. Yeesh. This is almost as bad as when MBC split the Daesang between Kim... More »

Unreleased poster belatedly revealed for horror film
by | August 25, 2009 | 4 Comments
(Ow. A bit more frightening than a similar poster for Yoga School, isn’t it?) The horror film Faithless Hell [불신지옥, also called Faith] opened on August 12 to general praise for its premise (religion) and strong directing. Yet it’s not till now, two weeks after its premiere, that the film starring Nam Sang-mi (Gourmet) and... More »

Shin Eun-kyung not responsible for ex-husband’s misdeeds
by | December 28, 2008 | 11 Comments
Well, thank goodness for justice (for once?). The court has ruled that that actress Shin Eun-kyung (Bad Couple, Mom’s Dead Upset) is not liable for her ex-husband’s debts. Shin Eun-kyung had been married for three years to an entertainment company CEO, Kim Jung-soo. However, perhaps due to business troubles, Kim used Shin’s registered seal (which... More »

Bad Couple: Episode 16 (Final)
by | July 25, 2007 | 33 Comments
Don’t worry, that’s just the first scene of the episode. I’d have picked a more cheerful one, but I didn’t want to spoil anything. Even if it is the last episode so there’s not a whole lot I can spoil at this point. (Random) SONG OF THE DAY Sol Flower – “Kiss the Kids,” a... More »

Bad Couple: Episode 15
by | July 22, 2007 | 14 Comments
So here’s the thing. I liked how Bad Couple ended in their last two episodes (15 & 16). I liked the resolutions and the character wrap-up. What I didn’t like, then, was how these resolutions were presented. Story = decent. Execution = hated. I kinda hesitate to give my full honest opinion on the ending... More »
