Featuring rare variety appearances, MBC’ Infinity Challenge stole the spotlight during the weekend.

On December 14’s episode of Infinity Challenge, the cast members went off to find lonely friends for their ‘Introducing Lonely Friends’ holiday party.

While the members visited many of their single friends, the two that stood out were So Ji Sub and Lee Dong Wook, who rarely appear on variety programs. The two caught on immediately when Yoo Jae Suk, Noh Hong Chul, and Jung Jun Ha asked if they were lonely. Both actors claimed that they were not lonely but were forced to take an invitation.

Unfortunately, it looks like So Ji Sub and Lee Dong Wook will not be attending the ‘Introducing Lonely Friends’ party due to prior schedules, and because they are not lonely - whatever that means

“I Need Romance 3″ 10-Second Teaser

By in Synopsis Summary posted Oct December 16th, 2013 No comments

I think some viewers were a little worried that this installment of the series wouldn’t feature the group of close-knit friends we all love. Luckily for us, tvN has released a teaser to alleviate our worries. Even though it’s only ten seconds long, we can see that Shin Joo Yeon has three close friends, one of which is a man. I suppose that’s their way of spicing things up this time around.

Each teaser is cuter than the previous one which only makes me more excited. Dear Drama, don’t disappoint come January 13th.


“Reply 1994″ Episode 18 Preview + Proposal Scene & “Reply 1997″ Cameo

By in Synopsis Summary posted Oct December 16th, 2013 No comments

Episode 17 was an awesome episode for Na Jung/Trash shippers but a terrible one for Trash/Binggeure and Joon Hee/Binggeure shippers because their ships sank. As well as Chil Bong fans because he only appeared on television.

But it was also a great episode for Reply 1997 fans because we got more awesome cameos from that cast, including Hak Chan.

But there are four more episodes. The writer and PD are known trolls and who knows, this may be one long con. Regardless, I’m still enjoying the journey and honestly don’t care who the husband is.

Here’s the preview for next Friday’s episode:

It looks like Na Jung’s family will encounter some financial difficulties due to her father’s bad investments

“You Came From The Stars” Official Posters

By in News posted Oct December 16th, 2013 No comments

The official posters for SBS’s new drama, You Came From The Stars, have just dropped, and the best way to describe them would be that they’re straightforward. I’d have liked for them to be more conceptually creative that they reflect the show’s clever and offbeat premise. These look more like fashion ads. Heh.

The first poster features the show’s six, main characters who are posing against a city backdrop with stars floating in the skyline. This one at least tries to reflect the drama’s title, but it’s still rather literal.

Meanwhile, only the show’s romantic leads—Kim Soo Hyun and Jeon Ji Hyun—are introduced in the other two posters … I suppose if you have two A-listers, then, that’s enough to sell the drama.

You Came From The Stars will begin airing this week on SBS

When dramas go crazy: Aurora Princess, a case study

By in News posted Oct December 16th, 2013 No comments

We’ve been following the ever-evolving story of Aurora Princess with raised eyebrows for months, as it has become a fixture in the headlines for its parade of shenanigans. And while it’s not the type of drama we’d typically be devoting a lot of attention to, it’s worth looking at if only as the cautionary tale of what not to do when making a show. If ever there were a case of a drama having more drama behind the cameras than in front of them, this would be it.

Aurora Princess is a long-running daily series on MBC and therefore went under our radars at first, but the constant reports of its outrageous behind-the-scenes antics grew too crazy to ignore; it’s the kind of stuff girlfriday and I would send each other with comments like “Omg, can you believe this?” and “What the heck are they smoking over there?” Just when you thought they’d reached some kind of quota on how much lunacy to pile into one production, the drama one-upped itself with fresh insanity

A hot JYP Entertainment trainee came as a guest on "Hidden Singer 2"!

J.Y. Park was the featured singer on the 14th"s episode. One of the 5 singers that came to imitate him was actually a JYP Entertainment trainee Park Sung Jin, who J.Y. Park revealed was the lead vocal of the upcoming rookie group debuting from JYPE - 5Live!

Park Sung Jin said, "I applied [to this program] through a 35:1 competition from the inside. I"m the only one who made it this far. [J.Y. Park] cares about us a lot, so when he yells at us, it"s kind of cute."

However, he stuttered on his words when he was talking, most likely because he was nervous. MC Jeon Hyun Moo joked, "He"s the coolest when he"s singing", and J

Is Baro’s ‘Reply 1994′ character going the same route as Hoya’s ‘Reply 1997′ character?

By in News posted Oct December 16th, 2013 No comments
If you"re a regular watcher of "Reply 1994" and you"ve also watched "Reply 1997", you might have noticed something in the preview for the last episode of the drama!

In the preview, Baro"s character stands waiting at the sidewalk, and he smiles when a red car pulls over in front of him. While this might mean nothing if you haven"t watched "Reply 1997", watchers of the previous drama might recognize the car - it"s the same exact car that picked Hoya up at the end of "Reply 1997"!

Hoya played a homosexual character in the drama, so many fans are wondering if Baro"s character may be the same! Do you think the two characters could be connected somehow?

(Or perhaps the driver of the red car specializes in abducting dating idols

Taemin revealed that he wanted to retire when he was 30!

On a recent episode of "We Got Married", Taemin and Na-Eun went to pay their utility bill. To do that, they had to make an account, and Taemin decided to make the account under his name. He said, "I"m going to do it under my name, since I"m the head of the household. Do you want to do it under your name?", but Na-Eun let him use his name.

It turned out to be a good thing, because he knew a lot about banking! Na-Eun commented, "He knows a lot more than I did. It"s like he"s an adult."

However, the actual surprising thing was his retirement age! When the banker asked him when he wanted to retire, he answered, "Thirty

The scruffy beard has always been a part of rapper Defconn"s personality, but in light of his new gig as a permanent cast member for KBS"s "1 Night 2 Days", he was forced to go back to his non-mustached roots!

Together as a team with fellow cast members Cha Tae Hyun and Jung Joon Young, the three of them were given the opportunity to move up to a better class of transportation - if one of them would willingly go through a style makeover. Although Defconn tried to get out of the mission, Cha Tae Hyun couldn"t change his hairstyle due to a movie filming and Jung Joon Young gave the excuse of a new album concept, leaving the rapper out in the cold.

The new, facial hair-free Defconn was a shock to his fellow cast, commenting that he looked like he was in elementary school again
