And now we’ve got... More »

Everyone’s got a secret to hide in Discovery of Romance
by | August 6, 2014 | 26 Comments
I do enjoy a rom-com with active, interesting posters (so many fall back on the old standbys and end up looking interchangeable with all the other rom-coms in dramaland), and KBS’s Discovery of Romance certainly has those. In the main posters, we get a continuation of the whole bickering-love-triangle motif that’s been driving much of... More »

Yoon Jin-yi scores loveline with Sung Joon in Discovery of Romance
by | June 24, 2014 | 22 Comments
Remember when I was all sad about Sung Joon being doomed to second fiddle status in Discovery of Romance, to love and lose Jung Yumi in classic second lead fashion? I feel better now, because Yoon Jin-yi (Mandate of Heaven, A Gentleman’s Dignity) has just been added to the KBS rom-com series, and she’s all... More »

Yoon Jin-yi (Mandate of Heaven, A Gentleman’s Dignity) is the latest cast addition to Noh Hee-kyung’s new melo It’s Okay, It’s Love, due out this summer on SBS. So far I like how this cast is shaping up, despite being iffy on the premise. Yoon Jin-yi is confirmed for the role of Jo In-sung’s fangirl... More »

Thank goodness this finale was good. When this cycle of dramas started with all the buzz projects and high-concept plots and big stars, who knew that this would be the show to stick? At least for me. I was certainly hoping Mandate of Heaven would be good, in the way that I hope all shows... More »

Mandate of Heaven: Episode 19

I don’t know if I’m just feeling emotional today, but today’s episode totally brought tears to my eyes, and for the best reasons. Not with big drama or grand gestures and intrigue, but for character moments that meant something, that were loaded with feeling and significance. With one episode left to go, the show is... More »

Mandate of Heaven: Episode 18

Ooh, a nice (and speedy) step up from yesterday. We’ve got some cuteness, some reversals, some more plotting (sigh, if we must), some squee (eeee), and even a surprise or two. It’s definitely feeling like we’re heading into the grand finale, and with that come some expected beats, but I think our good guys have... More »

Mandate of Heaven: Episode 17

Today gives us a bit of two steps forward, one step back—which at least is better than one step forward, two steps back, right? At least there’s also a nice big dose of cuteness to balance things out, which really goes a long way in light of the political games that ramp up in a... More »

I’m just gonna take a moment to bask in that image right there. He’s smart, dogged, and soliciting cuddles? Nab him, and fast! It’s a pretty major episode, with long-suppressed secrets finally spilling forth and giving our heroes solid victories. That means there’s a fair amount of fist-pumping going on as we get to enjoy...
