Birth of a Beauty: Episodes 1-2
by | November 4, 2014 | 89 Comments
SBS is taking a lighter, funnier approach to its weekend programs right now, with the newly premiered rom-com Birth of a Beauty joining the ridiculously goofball Modern Farmer on Saturdays and Sundays. When this drama was first announced, I wondered how they’d take this makeover premise and make it fresh, since I felt like no... More »

Revenge spurs romance in Birth of a Beauty
by | October 29, 2014 | 53 Comments
I hadn’t realized that makeover rom-com Birth of a Beauty was a revenge story (albeit a super-lighthearted one), but that’s a detail I can see working for the premise. It’s not a revenge drama per se (in that I don’t expect the whole show to follow the heroine’s vengeance path), but that’ll provide us with... More »

Script read and poster shoot for My Girl Hotel King
by | February 24, 2014 | 69 Comments
Well, these photos aren’t much to go on for upcoming weekend drama Hotel King, which has only just had its script reading and has therefore supplied us with no promo shots of Lee Dong-wook and Lee Da-hae in character, cozying up all romantic-like, preferably with lots of skinship and flirting. So we’ll have to make... More »

Suspicious Housekeeper: Episode 1
by | September 28, 2013 | 156 Comments
Suspicious Housekeeper premiered on SBS earlier this week, and it’s certainly got a little bit of everything—comedy, melodrama, and an interesting mystery revolving the strange housekeeper of the show’s namesake. She always obeys orders, never smiles, and seems to be missing some of the essential components that makes a human a human. Her character alone... More »

Suspicious posters for Suspicious Housekeeper
by | September 14, 2013 | 68 Comments
SBS’s Suspicious Housekeeper has whipped up some nice promo posters for the drama set to premiere in another week, which I’m happy about since drama posters so often underwhelm. Choi Ji-woo plays the housekeeper who begins working with a family after the mother dies and helps heal their emotional wounds, though there’s a little something... More »

Here we have more stills for Suspicious Housekeeper, the drama adapted from a Japanese series about a mysterious woman who comes to work for a family—composed of a widower and his four children—and helps them heal their various emotional wounds. I’m thinking Mary Poppins with a dash of something a little darker, like Nanny McPhee,... More »

New-drama alert! SBS is prepping an upcoming Monday-Tuesday series called Father’s War, which has cast Wang Ji-hye in the lead, who’s coming off of the cable drama Bachelor’s Vegetable Store. Is it weird that I’m more excited about the ajusshis, though? The drama has also cast Sohn Hyun-joo, who’s always wonderful in everything (Neighbor Enemies,... More »
