by | December 14, 2015 | 27 Comments
Saaaaad. Don’t get me wrong, I like Shin Ha-kyun (Mr. Back). But I love Jo Seung-woo (God’s Gift—14 Days), which is why I’m sad to hear that he ended up turning down the offer to headline tvN’s Pied Piper. Just don’t stay away from TV for too long, okay? The new series from the PD-writer... More »

Well, this is going to be interesting. Heard It Through the Grapevine premiered on SBS this week in an attempt to fill the gaping hole in the lineup left by Punch, which is a hard act to follow if there ever was one.

So do you think the Secret Love Affair art director gave this production team a discount for coming back to do the posters for I Heard it Through the Grapevine? Not that I’m complaining — they’re gorgeous posters… as were the ones for Secret Love Affair. It just makes me laugh to think that we... More »
