Jong-hyeok wants to keep these aspects of his life separate, for some reason. And right there is where "Drama Stage - Assistant Manager Park's Private Life" has its biggest problem. I don't have a clue why Jong-hyeok wants to have a secret identity. I especially don't know why he wants to work a normal office job. We learn surprisingly little about what kind of a person Jong-hyeok really is considering the sheer wackiness of the set-up...More
One woman can tell how long one has left to life in "About Time", which is a terrifying power to have. The catch is, she can't see her own end. A man she meets can stop her personal clock from ticking to its end and their time together literally determines the length of her life. Although this is a romance, the premise sounds rather terrifying and dark to me. I'm intrigued.

The same line courses beside Park Hae-soo's face in the second where he is pitted against the same background, but looking wary of the camera. Beautifully done. I'm intrigued...More

It seems that I always find my way back to crime-related drama content even when I am not actively looking for it and this time around I take a look at "Prison Playbook", which I had not given much attention to before. I also bring you deadly stills and teasers from "Bad Guys Season 2". May the upcoming imaginary crime pay off...More
The poster for "Prison Playbook" looks like just another promotion for a sports drama, but then there are key elements that morph it into something really interesting like the handcuffs on the pitcher's left hand or the fence and concrete walls of the prison that stands side-by-side with the stadium seats. One of our characters, I assume a lead, is probably a baseball player, or former baseball player. With the PD from the "Answer Me" series at the helm, I don't mimd not having any details. Don't let me down, PD Sin...More

Choi Si-won has an undeniable penchant for comedy with his goofy grin and complete lack of inhibition. In both of these teasers, he shines with his ability to capture the camera with his sense of physical humor. And, as a straight woman to his funny man, Kang So-ra and Gong Myung are equally as wry. It's a pretty fantastic to see the energy and personality differences in these characters...More

These two are quite different and their circumstances aren't ideal on a personal level, or so they think, but their financial and living situations make them a perfect match, especially with Jung So-min's unsavory former roommates and Lee Min-ki's debt issues. Let's jump into the cohabitation hijinks, one of the best tropes in dramaland...More
Choi Si-won, Kang So-ra and Gong Myung are looking strong in the new poster for "Revolutionary Love". In the first they are all sitting on a rooftop with their backs facing the camera and looking over their shoulders. It feels like we're peeking into their live and their struggles. The second has them on different levels of what looks like a dollhouse with objects in front of them that represent each of their lives: Kang So-ra works hard, Choi Si-won has luxury, and Gong Myung works for those better off than he. It's a pretty apt characterization of each of them. In a few weeks, we'll get to see them in action...More

The three ladies of "Buam-dong Avengers" are a bit unsure of how to proceed in the newest teaser, but they do know without a doubt that they want to exact revenge. Lee Yo-won has money and needs to decide a course of action. Ra Mi-ran is fiercely protective of her kids and seems to be the boldest of the three. Housewife of a professor Myung Se-bin is scared, but also determined to join her fellow avengers. I'm curious to learn about the youngest avenger played by Jun. He hates how his parents treat him and I want to see his face on camera so I can read him like the three women...More

We get our first glimpse into Byeon Hyeok's inability to survive on his own in this short teaser for "Revolutionary Love". The teaser starts off as a sexy get Choi Si-won soaked in water sort of deal, then morphs into a clumby man fumbling with a water bottle and a very frustrated Kang So-ra thinking that this new worker just ain't gonna work out. It's pretty darn funny. It's like taking his character from "She Was Pretty" and making him into a lead. And I'm all for that...More
Still are out for two ladies in the "Buam-dong Avengers" club, Ra Mi-ran and Lee Yo-wan.

This newest trailer for "This Life Is Our First Life" is pretty darn cute. Lee Min-ki and Jung So-min are hashing out the details of their housing contract (drama trope, check!). As things get heated and an explosion seems eminent, they stick out their hands for a handshake, stating, "You're not my style". Therefore, all is well and the agreement is sealed. I wonder how long it will take for them both make that statement false. I'm already loving these two leads together...More

After last week's round up of news for romantic series, I need a little something to balance things off. Today I bring you revenge and death, although sadly not combined. "Buam-dong Avengers" drops some great teasers hinting at family drama. "While You Were Sleeping - 2017" and "Black" may share the element of predicting death, but the clear differences in focused genre cover different tastes. All in all, we have a promising upcoming drama season...More
Siwon and his silly grin are back for "Revolutionary Love". He was the best part of "She Was Pretty" for me and I'm getting a simliar vibe in the teaser. I'm sure he'll branch out, but I love his ability to tap into a place of no inhibitions and let the goofy out. Kang So-ra seems to be following suit...More

How does one find the truth in a world plagued by corruption, bad reporting, flimsy journalistic ethics and the distortion brought on by the need for speedy news and social media hype? Getting to the bottom of events is harder than ever in this day and age. "Argon" is the story of a group which fights against this.
Kim Baek-jin (Kim Joo-hyuk) is an anchor who only accepts facts. Lee Yeon-hwa (Chun Woo-hee) is a contract worker who wants to be a reporter. The two are part of the investigative show "Argon". The show prevents the distortion of the truth like the element prevents oxidation...More
We always watch dramas about the heroic, brilliant doctors and surgeons who cut into people like you and me and try to save lives.

As someone who has benefited by working with all of those professionals, I'm keen to see what dramaland's take on their roles in health will be...More
After sitting in on PD Kim Won-seok's panel at KCON LA 2016 last year, I promised myself I'd watch everything he works on. Originally I had sat in because I had loved "Signal", "Incomplete Life", "Monstar", and "Sunkyungkwan Scandal". After hearing him speak about his thought process and understanding the care and consideration he puts into all of his work, I became attached to this director. It goes without saying that I am absolutely stoked for "My Mister" whose premise promises to give lots of insight into living...More

The four minutes of the new "Argon" highlight video dig into the main characters who are passionate, intense individuals with differing ways on how to go about things. Even from this brief glimpse, the cast is quite suited to the fast-paced journalism world. The question now becomes, what will this eight-episode drama do to distinguish itself from the currently airing "Falsify"? It seems that it will veer a bit more towards the idyllic path of journalism rather than the dark, knitty gritty of "Falsify"...More

New week, new drama goodies, but also a small change in content. There is so much to cover out there, but spam torture is not how I roll, so today's piece and probably pieces in the foreseeable future will include upcoming drama news I find interesting.
