by | July 8, 2014 | 78 Comments
Aiee, at first I was excited at the prospect of Ji Sung (Secret) headlining a superhero drama, but then came news that Shin Se-kyung (When a Man Loves) was being courted to play the heroine. I swear I’ve tried, but I have never liked her in anything. For now the upside is that both actors... More »

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 »

by | November 1, 2013 | 82 Comments
Sooo, I’ve got some good news and some bad news. I’ll let you decide which is which. High-stakes-gambling-centered Tazza has been a manhwa, a movie, and a drama, and now the property is circling back for a second round on the big screen with Tazza 2: Hand of God. As was previously teased, the lead... More »

I think I have just about exhausted my store of things to say about When A Man Loves, MBC’s mobsters-and-jealousy-and-romantic-entanglement-laden melodrama starring Song Seung-heon. So instead of repeating myself yet again and belaboring the point on what I think of this show, I’ll just get straight to the point: new posters! Tags: Shin Se-kyung, Song... More »

So here are more stills from Song Seung-heon’s new Wednesday-Thursday drama When A Man Loves, which is the (purportedly) intense emotional gangster melodrama featuring Song as a mobster with a wife and a girlfriend (Chae Jung-ahn and Shin Se-kyung), and Yeon Woo-jin hanging around to play spoiler in the love triangle(s). What’s funny about these... More »

Song Seung-heon in When a Man has Better Luck on the East of Destiny
by | March 15, 2013 | 146 Comments
What do you mean that’s not what the drama is called? I actually had to check all the new stills from Song Seung-heon’s new show to make sure they weren’t just shots from his other gangster movies or dramas. And really, I’m still not sure that they’re not. Here’s the cast of the new gangster... More »

JB plays Cupid for Song Seung-heon, Shin Se-kyung
by | March 11, 2013 | 128 Comments
I was pretty surprised to hear this news of idol JB being cast in his next acting gig, MBC’s When A Man Loves, because I’d seen him in Dream High 2 and… Let’s just say that while he may not be the most terrible actor ever… okay, I can’t finish that sentence because he may... More »

by | January 28, 2013 | 151 Comments
It’s only been half a year since Dr. Jin called it a day, but Song Seung-heon is coming back with another MBC drama series. Y…ay? This one’s called When A Man Loves, and I sincerely hope this drama’s answer to that isn’t “…he travels through a wormhole and also falls in love with the doppelganger,... More »

Fashion King: Episode 2
by | March 22, 2012 | 96 Comments
We’ve got questionably-foreign gangsters, immigrant smuggling, mafia-escaping escapades, country-wide hitchhiking, famous designer ex-girlfriends, secretly connected pasts, and eccentric roommate hijinks all in one hour. Whether all those things work toward telling a coherent tale is up to you, but if there’s one thing this show has taught me, it’s that most problems can be solved... More »
