by | November 21, 2014 | 57 Comments
It’s time for the 51st Grand Bell Awards (Daejong Film Awards), the first of the major year-end award ceremonies, which celebrates achievement in film. There were actually a good number of big movies in 2014 to spread the love around, whether in box office numbers or critical acclaim, but the overwhelming theme seems to be:... 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 »

Song Seung-heon up for rom-com opposite Uhm Jung-hwa
by | September 27, 2014 | 39 Comments
Well this is good news — Song Seung-heon (When a Man Loves) is considering a return to romantic comedy, which is frankly where I think he belongs. Seriously, wouldn’t you pay someone to erase his tortured-gangster and time-traveling-doctor roles from your brain and just replace them with more scenes from My Princess? Anyhoo, he’s considering...

Uhm Jung-hwa returns to big screen in body-swap comedy
by | September 25, 2014 | 27 Comments
I don’t know if it counts as a body-swap plot if it’s technically your own life lived twice, but there’s not much else you can call a story about waking up a completely different person. Uhm Jung-hwa (Witch’s Romance) is returning to the big screen in the comedy Wonderful Nightmare, where she plays a high-powered... More »

Witch’s Romance: Episode 15
by | June 11, 2014 | 56 Comments
This episode really delivers on the kisses and cuddles, almost making it worth such a long wait! But although all the large obstacles in Dong-ha and Ji-yeon’s path to couplehood have been laid to rest, there’s still a lot of ground to cover when it comes to learning how to actually be a in a...

Witch’s Romance: Episode 14
by | June 6, 2014 | 55 Comments
The cute is back with a vengeance! And not a moment too soon, as I was beginning to fear we’d never return to the fun, zippy episodes of yore. Dong-ha gets most of the attention this time as Ji-yeon tries to help him reconcile with his father. She also finally remembers that she’s the ace... More »

Breakups and comebacks and parties, oh my! A lot happens in this episode, all the better to bring our two leads closer together again after so many weeks of estrangement. And not a moment too soon, as I was starting to worry that we’d never see Dong-ha and Ji-yeon smile and have fun together again.... More »

Witch’s Romance: Episode 11
by | May 28, 2014 | 85 Comments
The cute is back! Well mostly back, as we get an episode that reminds us of the fun, silly, lighthearted Witch’s Romance we fell in love with at the beginning. Our leads still have a lot of issues to work out, which isn’t helped by the fact that they aren’t having their trademark honest talks... More »

Witch’s Romance: Episode 10
by | May 24, 2014 | 63 Comments
Dong-ha continues his dark descent into drunken depression (how’s that for some alliteration?), while Ji-yeon struggles to reconcile what it means to have Shi-hoon officially back in her life. Neither of our leads is very happy this episode, except for when they get to momentarily forget everything except each other, and then they practically glow... More »
