Kim Nam-gil joins Ryu Seung-ryong, Suzy in sageuk film
by | September 11, 2014 | 51 Comments
Kim Nam-gil (Shark) always does well in sageuk (see: Queen Seon-deok, his current swashbuckling hit Pirate), so I’m happy to hear that he’s sticking to his forte in his next project. He’ll be joining the historical film Dorihwaga, named for a type of traditional pansori song. Heavy-hitter Ryu Seung-ryong (Roaring Currents) is headlining as the... More »

Er, this isn’t the most natural-sounding pairing, but let’s hear it out: Ryu Seung-ryong (The Target, Miracle in Cell No. 7) and Suzy (Gu Family Book) have been cast together in a period film based on the real life of Shin Jae-hyo, a writer, teacher, and patron of pansori, a traditional form of musical storytelling....

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 »

Uh… so THAT happened. There are words. They’re forming slowly because I have a melty puddle where my brain used to be. It’s finale time for Gu Family Book, and I’ll tell you one thing: It ain’t boring! Ha. Hahahaha. Heh. Heh. Heh… *cries* The finale brought in 19.5%, which left it just shy of... More »

Gu Family Book: Episode 23

I wish I could say that the episode leading up to the finale was spectacular, but I can’t. It’s a really underwhelming hour. First, the hero annoys me with his noble idiocy. Then, the villains annoy me with the lack of diversity in their repertoire of villainy. Then there’s an interlude where Dad gets a... More »

Gu Family Book: Episode 22

Kang-chi finally gets ready to go on his quest to become a real boy, and Yeo-wool prepares to say goodbye, not realizing that he’s doing the same. It’s an episode of fallouts and setups, so there is a bit of an epilogue feel to some of the proceedings as we close a few chapters and... More »

This hour is the bookend to Episodes 1 and 2, and even though it’s been a while since Wol-ryung and Seo-hwa have been at the center of this story, it turns out they can still wring our hearts, just like they did the first time. I’m not crying, I swear. I just have something in... More »

Gu Family Book: Episode 20

Okay, I’m happier with this episode. There’s a nice balance of character development, epic face-offs, cute couple moments, and emotional payoffs for conflicts that we’ve been circling for a while. And no, I’m not just happier because there are nekkid hijinks. At least… not entirely.   EPISODE 20 RECAP As per her arrangement with Tae-seo,... More »

Gu Family Book: Episode 19
by | June 10, 2013 | 175 Comments
It’s an episode all about Kang-chi’s family—the people who took him in and raised him, the people who abandoned him, and the people who accepted him for who (or what) he is. There’s heartbreak and angst in that tale, but also a lot to be gained, because this story has never been about the family... More »

Gu Family Book: Episode 18

The beans are a-spillin’. It’s an episode full of reveals, as each character learns a monumental secret, from the source of family tragedies, to long-lost gumiho babies, to first love obsessions that literally will not die. They say your past always catches up to you, but damn, can’t we get an handle on that mess... More »
