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 | 57 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 »

Yoo Yeon-seok on The Informant and life after Chilbongie
by | September 21, 2014 | 44 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 »

Youths Over Flowers: Episode 7
by | September 16, 2014 | 73 Comments
javabeans: We start the first episode of the Laos trip with a clip of the Peru trip, labeled the last night of “the old youths.” Lol. Like it wasn’t rubbing it in enough to call Sang, Juck, and Hee-yeol “youths” in the first place. girlfriday: You just know Na PD was snickering to himself the... More »

The Informant races the clock to expose truth
by | August 14, 2014 | 18 Comments
A brief clip of the upcoming movie The Informant (also called Whistle Blower) has been released, and it looks gripping. The film is based on the true story of Hwang Woo-suk, the South Korean veterinarian (with a doctorate degree) and Seoul National University professor who received global press when he claimed to have successfully cloned...

Kids will be kids on Youths Over Flowers
by | July 14, 2014 | 38 Comments
Both the casts of Na PD’s next travel variety show Youths Over Flowers have returned from their trips, looking every bit the eager tourists, decked out in clothes from the countries they just visited. I wish I could say they also looked cool while doing so, but that would be lying. I know, who watches... More »

Answer Me, Youths Over Flowers
by | July 8, 2014 | 51 Comments
Trust evil genius Na PD (Grandpas Over Flowers, 1N2D) to trick us yet again! He’d initially kidnapped a trio of musicians (and variety regulars) for his new backpacking variety program Youths Over Flowers, giving the title a tongue-in-cheek twist since Yoon Sang, Yoo Hee-yeol, and Lee Juck are all fortysomething and more appropriately ajusshis than...
