I posted about the drama Chaebol’s Daughter possibly getting the post-Heard It Through the Grapevine timeslot on SBS, but looks like they’ll have to wait a little longer to air, because a different drama has secured that slot. Instead of a present-day drama about a rich woman wanting to find someone to love her for... More »

My excitement for upcoming drama Joseon Gunman made me realize that I miss having a sageuk in my life, so I decided to draw one of my favorites from the last few years.

What the ever-lovin’ reindeer feculence? I get home from my overnight trans-earthian sleigh odyssey, settle back with my hard-earned fifths of whiskey to read up on what I’ve missed in dramaland, and find that they’ve finished the year-end reviews without me?

Power plays, intrigue, conspiracies, mysteries, mass murders, storytelling assassins, awkward tea parties, and drug-induced confessions are just some of the delicacies we’re being offered as we head toward that final and much-dreaded stretch.
