Okay, I give you all permission to cry right now. No need to wait until actually watching episode 19, you might as well let the tears flow earlier. Maybe we’ll all be so cried out (not to mention severely dehydrated), when we actually watch episode 19 we won’t need to pause every three seconds to blow our nose and wail plaintively. The video preview is out for episode 19 of 49 Days, so have a watch. The rest is just a waiting game to see where the scriptwriter wants to take the story to its logical and fitting conclusion.

Do I want to keep watching Lie to Me? The answer is yes. Do I think it’s good or has the potential to be a solid drama? The answer is, sadly, no. How do I reconcile these seemingly contradictory things? By shucking all remaining expectations out the window (bye bye) and start with a brand new premise. Lie to Me is like an elementary school play, one which I had hoped was of much higher caliber, but I was wrong, so now I need to sit back and enjoy the cute and smile at the winsome. Continue reading
The upcoming SBS Wed-Thurs drama City Hunter held it’s press conference yesterday. The cast showed up to introduce their drama to the media and present a 9 minute trailer (linked below). I think the cast is quite pretty, no doubt about it, but I’m just not getting that added oomph of chemistry from the group.
I do wonder if Goo Hara and Park Min Young are having a skirt-off (my skirt is shorter than yours – no, mine’s the shortest!), what the heck is Lee Min Ho wearing (yet again), why Hwang Seon Hee looks like a sexy librarian, and couldn’t Lee Joon Hyuk find a suit that fit properly? See, clearly I only notice very important things. Continue reading
Man, if this drama makes me end up sick of bread imma going to be pretty PO’d. Two more teaser trailers for Love Keeps Going (which is the official English title for the TW-drama Mei Le, Go) have been released. I’ve translated the voiceovers to try and understand what this drama will be about. I think the colors of the drama look quite pretty……and that’s about it.
The most notable thing for me is that the first trailer shows a scene completely ripped off Sunny Happiness it’s almost a parody that they got Mike He to perform said scene again. Yeesh, more originality people. Nevertheless, against my better judgment, I really like the trailer song, so I guess this means I’m definitely going to check this out. Continue reading
We finally have our Romeo to romance his Juliet. Moon Chae Won was cast a few weeks ago as the lead in The Princess’s Man, an upcoming KBS Wed-Thurs sageuk (to follow Romance Town), which is being described as a Joseon-era Romeo and Juliet. Today news reports have finally confirmed that Park Shi Hoo has been cast as the Man to Moon Chae Won’s princess. I’m thrilled with this news, because I’ve always liked Moon Chae Won and Park Shi Hoo’s previous sageuk roles, she in Painter of the Wind, and he in Iljimae. I find this pairing unexpected but intriguing. Continue reading
It’s disappointing for me to discover that Episode 3 of Lie to Me didn’t make any moves to improve on the first two episodes. It moved the plot forward in the most perfunctory of ways, without laying any solid emotional groundwork. Of all the May dramas, this was the one drama I personally wanted to love the most, but I fear greatly that it may end up being the turkey of the bunch. That would piss me off to no end.
