Oh boy. Well, you know you have a Kim Eun-sook drama on your hands when the hero manages to anger you in twenty seconds flat. Sometimes I forget that we’re stepping into her alternaverse where up is down and domineering is supposed to be sexy. Is it too much to hope that the first teaser... More »

Song Hye-gyo to romance Song Joong-ki for Descended From the Sun?
by | March 12, 2015 | 142 Comments
On one hand, I totally see the reasoning in courting Song Hye-gyo to headline the human melodrama Descended From the Sun: Her starpower aligns with what I expect of the highly buzzed-about project, which comes from hitmaker writer Kim Eun-sook (Heirs, Secret Garden, A Gentleman’s Dignity) and is also currently trying to sign on Song...
