by | November 8, 2014 | 28 Comments
Aw, adorable dimple-faced Park Min-woo (Modern Farmer, Flower Grandpa Investigation Unit) has steadily built up his resume after debuting as the sunny bully Ba-wool in 2011’s Flower Boy Ramyun Shop, and he’s just secured his first film role. He’ll be making his big-screen debut in That One Day (or The Mood That Day), a romance... More »

Fashion and intrigue propel period melodrama Tailors
by | November 5, 2014 | 34 Comments
I would expect no less from a movie that’s all about royal clothing and the people who make it, but these posters for Tailor sure are beautiful. We’ve also got our first trailer, which is equally beautiful, and also highlights for us the story’s mix of tension, intrigue, romance, and thrills. Tailor is about two... More »

Vampire medical drama Blood courts Ji Jin-hee, Kwon Hyun-sang
by | November 5, 2014 | 35 Comments
Huh, I actually like the sound of this — KBS’s new vampire medical drama Blood is courting Ji Jin-hee (Warm Words) to play the main villain, and in the drama where the vampire is the hero, the villain is just a human who’s so evil that he’s called the devil. I guess if he turned... More »

Yoo Yeon-seok courted to be bloodthirsty vampire doctor
by | November 3, 2014 | 39 Comments
Well, if 2015 is going to be the Year of the Vampire, we might as well have a doctor vampire among them… right? *nervous laugh* I have no idea how they’re going to make a vampire doctor drama work, but I’ll admit I care a lot more now that they’re courting Yoo Yeon-seok (Answer Me... More »

Youths Over Flowers: Episode 11 (Final)
by | October 15, 2014 | 23 Comments
javabeans: This is a highlight episode since last week’s episode took us through the end of the Laos trip, but I’m hoping that there’ll be good tidbits in here. I don’t love highlight episodes since they feel like filler, but this production team is pretty good about finding narratives in any situation. girlfriday: Waaaah, I... More »

Youths Over Flowers: Episode 10
by | October 8, 2014 | 39 Comments
girlfriday: Aw, it’s already the start of the last day for the boys. After trekking around forever to get the best room he could find, Yeon-seok sits down to count out the money they have left to spend. Strangely it’s a lot, considering that they were given very little to begin with, and the show... 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 »

Youths Over Flowers: Episode 9
by | October 1, 2014 | 46 Comments
girlfriday: This episode begins with an ominous tone, introducing each of the boys as “informants,” which must be a meta reference to Yeon-seok’s latest movie. javabeans: Oh right, we pick up after that night out at the club—and from their reactions (“He said that? I told him not to tell”), I hope we’re in for... More »

Yoo Yeon-seok, Lee Jin-wook, Park Seo-joon cast to play one leading man
by | September 29, 2014 | 93 Comments
How can three guys play one leading man, you ask? Why, in a body-swap comedy where the hero constantly wakes up in different bodies, of course. The fact that he wakes up in only men as handsome as Yoo Yeon-seok (Answer Me 1994), Lee Jin-wook (Three Musketeers), or Park Seo-joon (Witch’s Romance) is a bit... More »

Youths Over Flowers: Episode 8
by | September 24, 2014 | 45 Comments
javabeans: We’re back in Laos! You know, that blue-screened intro is funnier now that I saw what it took to get that footage. (Which, by the way, I watched about fifty times over the past week.) girlfriday: Yes, she turned it into a clip and sent it to me, and we’ve since been very unproductive.... More »

by | September 21, 2014 | 46 Comments
Ahhh, I luffff him. If you’ve seen the 30-year-old Yoo Yeon-seok in Youths Over Flowers, you know that he’s a meticulous planner — the type who stays up late planning everyone’s activities for the next day. On the variety show, he never wants to waste a moment on the trip, and in a new interview... More »
