Oh My Venus: Episode 3
by | November 25, 2015 | 121 Comments
Oh My Venus continues to be sweet and funny, but a bit more backstory on our characters reveals a dark underbelly of lifelong hurt and betrayal. The show is turning out to be deeper than expected, though not at all in the ways you’d expect. While a physical makeover is in the works for one... More »

We learn a bit more about our leads in this hour, about their pasts and their present, and how our heroine isn’t the only one in an uncomfortable situation — our hero may need her as much as she needs him. But that doesn’t mean that forming an alliance will be easy — with two... More »

Oh My Venus: Episode 1
by | November 16, 2015 | 158 Comments
It’s a promising start for Oh My Venus, the weight-loss-challenge rom-com that premiered today on KBS. I admit that I still have some niggling reservations about the premise, but I like the tone, the leads (in particular the sympathetic heroine), and find promise in the side characters. But really, we’re all watching this for the... More »

Thing vs. Thing: Image ruinations
by | November 11, 2015 | 94 Comments
javabeans: With She Was Pretty, Answer Me 1988, and the upcoming Oh My Venus in our collective consciousness at the moment, we’re reminded once again that dramaland loves its image ruinations. Or maybe it’s just that audiences love pretty people making themselves look uglier for the sake of drama. Not that they look actually ugly,... More »

Ah, now we have a proper teaser for upcoming rom-com drama Oh My Venus (I don’t care what KBS says, this clip of a gym workout hardly counts), and it gives us a glimpse into the cute sparring dynamic between leads Shin Mina and So Ji-sub. I have to say, it looks adorable. I’m still... More »

High school uniforms and boxing gloves for Oh My Venus
by | October 21, 2015 | 47 Comments
Oh My Venus (the KBS rom-com formerly known as Oh My God) finally has some stills for us, with a few fan photos thrown in for good measure. I have to concede that this drama sounds like a pastiche of a bunch of other recent dramas, but if only for the sake of the cast,... More »

Shin Mina, So Ji-sub sign on to rom-com drama Oh My God
by | July 17, 2015 | 132 Comments
Whoa, this drama came out of nowhere and somehow it’s managed to secure two big stars to headline, So Ji-sub (Master’s Sun) and Shin Mina (Arang and the Magistrate). I dunno how KBS pulled it off but I’m assuming there has to be a cracking story or script that lured the stars in, because the... More »

The Baeksang Arts Awards are back with their 51st installment, awarding prizes in both film and television.

One of the big surprises was variety PD Na Young-seok being named the Daesang winner in the TV category; although I wouldn’t... More »
