by | March 25, 2015 | 25 Comments
How cute: SBS’s mystery-suspense-romantic-comedy series Girl Who Sees Smells has released a set of character drawings corresponding to the actor counterparts, as well as a manwha-inspired poster.

The boy who can’t feel and the Girl Who Sees Smells
by | March 12, 2015 | 61 Comments
The first teaser is out for SBS’s new Wednesday-Thursday drama Girl Who Sees Smells, and though the production is super low-rent (really, you couldn’t manage to think of anything other than shooting on an empty soundstage?), I can actually see Park Yoochun and Shin Se-kyung being cute together.

Iron Man: Episode 2
by | September 15, 2014 | 71 Comments
I know this may sound surprising, but just hear me out: Maybe Iron Man isn’t actually batshit insane. Maybe it’s surprisingly funny. Maybe I even liked it? But the drama did commit a cardinal sin in starting with a ridiculous (and worse, impenetrable) premiere episode when it really should’ve just kicked off with Episode 2,... More »

Well that only took forever. We were gettin’ down to the wire here, and I started to fear that Joseon Gunman’s extension had to do with its follow-up drama’s drama. But KBS’s upcoming supernatural series Iron Man finally has its hero in Lee Dong-wook, who’s just barely coming off the set of his last drama... More »
