I like Yeon Jung-hoon (Vampire Prosecutor, I Summon You Gold) too much to want him to play second lead characters, but here’s a case where I’ll let that go because I am intrigued about the idea of him playing a hardcore villain — a great antagonist can be just as memorable as a good hero,...

Good news: Yeon Jung-hoon is finalizing a deal to come back to dramaland this year. Bad news: it’s not for Vampire Prosecutor 3. WHY. Do we need to have a talk about priorities, huh?

I could quibble that two East Asian entities do not equal a global drama, but that’s what Yeon Jung-hoon’s (Vampire Prosecutor, I Summon You Gold) next project is calling itself: He’ll be acting in a four-part omnibus drama titled A Time of Love (爱情来的时候), which is a collaboration between cable-satellite channel KBSN and Hong Kong...

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 »

I Summon You, Gold starts shoots, prepares for premiere
by | April 2, 2013 | 60 Comments
Two actors, three lead characters: I admit I’m sorta giving I Summon You, Gold the side-eye for its identical-strangers storyline where Han Ji-hye plays two different women. Not to say these can’t be fun in a campy way, though we’ve had our share of overly melo versions as well (Cinderella Man, say). In these latest... More »

Vampire Prosecutor 2: Episode 11 (Final)
by | November 18, 2012 | 103 Comments
Badass. So badass, in fact, that I immediately want to watch it again. I sort of wonder if they saved all their eggs for the finale this season, instead of doling out the awesome little by little, because the final episode is considerably better than the past ten. It’s go-go-go from start to finish, and... More »

Whoa. I don’t even know how to preview this episode without giving anything away. Let’s just say the Big Bad wages his war, and he’s not messing around. You might want to cover your eyes for this. Now that we’re entering the final three episodes, I think it’s safe to say: The showdown has begun…... More »
