by | June 14, 2013 | 24 Comments
Hm, I wouldn’t mind being lost at sea with these two. Bong Joon-ho (Snowpiercer, The Host) is producing a new movie called Sea Fog, and he’s scored the fabulous Kim Yoon-seok (Thieves, Wandeuki) to star. That man is just great in everything. Song Joong-ki (Nice Guy, A Werewolf Boy) is being tapped to join him,... More »

Movie Review: A Werewolf Boy
by | May 11, 2013 | 165 Comments
A Werewolf Boy is an exceptional film that’s been on my radar ever since it was announced (so by that timeline, I’ll get to watch Gwanghae, the Man Who Became King by the year 2037), and one that’s raked in some considerable accolades since its lauded release last fall. Despite this being a sophomore effort... More »

49th Baeksang Arts Awards
by | May 9, 2013 | 169 Comments
The Baeksang Arts Awards really snuck up on me this year. This awards ceremony is the lone wolf being held in the springtime rather than toward the end of the year (as is the case with the broadcaster events and film awards like the Grand Bells and Blue Dragons), and is also unusual in that...

Song Joong-ki in consideration for Tazza 2
by | April 6, 2013 | 68 Comments
They’ve been talking about making a Tazza 2 for so long that I sort of forgot they didn’t already. The hit 2006 gambling movie — Tazza, sometimes called The High Rollers or The War of the Flowers — was based on a manhwa and already had a 2008 drama remake, and is now gearing up... More »

And so it ends, and we have to say goodbye to the nicest guy we’ve never seen anywhere in the world – the drama world, anyway. More than just coming full circle, our characters (and especially our side characters) are able to finally move on from the shackles of their pasts in a satisfying way,... More »

Nice Guy: Episode 19
by | November 15, 2012 | 79 Comments
This certainly is an emotional powerhouse of an episode, with Maru and Jae-hee coming to some startling (and sometimes frustrating) realizations about themselves and how they relate to each other. Now that Eun-ki’s back, she’s not about to let anyone off the hook as far as her dead daddy goes, and the only thing standing... More »

Nice Guy: Episode 18

Hey guys, just stepping in to recap this one episode because someone is busy ogling her Oppa in person (Priorities!), and because you really needn’t ask me twice to spend a day with Joong-ki. I’m easy like that. Let the melo and mayhem begin. As finale week approaches, it’s fallout time for Maru and his... More »

Nice Guy: Episode 17
by | November 8, 2012 | 95 Comments
(I’m pinch-hitting on Nice Guy today, but fear not, we’ll resume with our regularly scheduled programming next week when HeadsNo2 comes back.) I am happy to have a chance to weigh in on the show, which I’ve been faithfully watching and finding very entertaining, despite (or maybe because of?) some crazy-up-the-wazoo character behavior. But very... More »
