The cable deluge is upon us! I’m glad to report that some of the brand-new selections look quite promising, as is the case with the adorable Color of Woman, which turns out to be a lot more feel-good than the descriptions made it seem.

by | December 1, 2011 | 34 Comments
New drama Color of Woman has just released two posters, which may not be terribly original, but it’s not a supremely high-concept show anyway. The posters convey the general tone and gist of the show, and are pretty cute despite being fairly standard, verging on plain. The story’s about two rival careerwomen in a cosmetics... More »

First look at Warrior Baek Dong-soo
by | May 30, 2011 | 56 Comments
Here’s our first look at upcoming fusion sageuk Warrior Baek Dong-soo, the comic book adaptation which stars Ji Chang-wook as our righteous hero Baek Dong-soo and Yoo Seung-ho as the (seemingly Mi-shil-esque) villain/rival Yeo-woon.
