Moon Chae-won considers Criminal Minds opposite Lee Jun-ki
by | February 23, 2017 | 167 Comments
Oh, I like this better. The Korean remake of CBS’s FBI profiling drama Criminal Minds is still courting Lee Jun-ki (Moon Lovers: Scarlet Heart Ryeo) to headline, but Kim Ah-joong must’ve turned down the starring role opposite him, because an offer is now out to Moon Chae-won (Goodbye Mr. Black). This is a pairing I’d... More »

2014 Busan International Film Festival’s opening red carpet
by | October 2, 2014 | 59 Comments
It’s red carpet season! I both love and hate awards/festival season (fall-winter, mostly) because on one hand, it’s never a burden to look at scores of beautiful people strutting a formal event looking (mostly) their best, but on the other, these posts can be massive and a pain to compile. But let our pain be... More »

Three Days: Episode 16 (Final)
by | May 4, 2014 | 40 Comments
This series has been a roller coaster ride in terms of both its plot and its quality. When Three Days was good, it was very good and when it was bad… well, let’s try to focus on the good times, shall we? A drama can often be forgiven for some bumps along the way as... More »

Three Days: Episode 15
by | April 30, 2014 | 42 Comments
At least we know that with a show like Three Days, the final showdown’s the basket where they’ve put all the eggs. I’d argue that they did it at the expense of a more evenly paced drama, but at least I know they’re going to put some muscle (and money) behind an action-packed final week.... More »
