Santa Strikes Back! [Year In Review, Part 6]
by | December 25, 2011 | 101 Comments
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?

Warrior Baek Dong-soo’s first poster
by | June 21, 2011 | 42 Comments
The first official poster is out for upcoming fusion action sageuk Warrior Baek Dong-soo, a show about which I am being cautious, but optimistic.

MUCH cooler stills from Warrior Baek Dong-soo
by | June 2, 2011 | 58 Comments
