The casting process for the drama adaptation of My Sassy Girl continues to be a doozy. Actress Kim Joo-hyun, winner of the ultimately futile nationwide search for Sassy’s leading lady, was relegated to second lead after Oh Yeon-seo (Come Back, Ajusshi) was offered the leading role instead.

Broken hearts aren’t just caused by romantic relationships gone awry — they can just as easily be caused by family tragedies, or the soul-crushing disappointment of being told “no” when you really want the answer to be “yes.” I think it’s human nature to want to run away from it... More »

Moonlight Drawn By Clouds: Episode 1
by | August 22, 2016 | 129 Comments
Moonlight Drawn By Clouds is basically cuteness overload. It’s not your grandpa’s sageuk, or even your mother’s sageuk, and makes no claims to historical realism.

Kim Hyun-joo goes back to high school for Fantastic
by | August 22, 2016 | 55 Comments
For a drama that involves a main character with a terminal disease, JTBC’s Fantastic sure looks upbeat, which is something I could really get behind. That’s not to say that thoughtful, sorrowful terminal-disease dramas don’t have their place… I just think their place just may be far, far away from... More »
