There are 4-5 episodes left, I think, and why did Wakaba have to be a lawyer? Now that Mom has returned out of the blue, she will want to take Pitaro back with her to NY. Pill Bug will go running (sadly) to Wakaba asking for legal advice and help. Wakaba will understand that losing or having family ...

Hey Seirin chill out. It is only a drama. Count to ten and take a deep breath. Do not say the whole crew hates her, you have no clue what the crew likes or dislikes. Hell, some may admire her for standing up to the slave tactics of the producers. So relax and do NOT put words into their mouths. I th...

OK, call me a sucker for a pretty woman, but also in her defense is the fact that she is the star (sorry Eric) and the camera does not leave her very much. She is either with Eric or with the North Korean spies, but it is mainly her. Yes there is the manuscript subplot, but that has been few and far...

You are right seirin, unless she was promised something going into the drama that never happened. Also most actors can run home to Inchon, Seoul or Busan for a weekend and directors can work around that. Completely different story when home is across the Pacific Ocean. Like I said before, she is not...

Silverman, then according to you, her Korean should be good, but not perfect also. Eugene--she was raised on Guam, good English with accent Gong Yoo--he was raised in Australia, speaks Aussie English perfectly. Watch first episode of One Fine Day. I hope HYS returns, there has to be something we do ...

If this had happened to any other actress in Korea, there would be no place to hide, even going home there would be people hounding you. HYS is lucky, SHE IS AMERICAN, born and raised. She can go home to Los Angeles and leave everything behind her. There are many places in the states that have no id...

Major ISPs agree to "six strikes" copyright enforc

How much will this affect those of us living in the USA and our Drama cravings. American Internet users, get ready for three strikes "six strikes." Major US Internet providers—including AT&T, Verizon, Comcast, Cablevision, and Time Warner Cable—have just signed on to a voluntary agreement with the ...

The extension was from 16 to 17 episodes, but they had Gong Yoo's induction in the army coming up real fast.

We keep talking about the last episodes and those that dropped out at 15 just might want to keep going. I felt this had all the makings of a really good drama and then they blow it in the last few episodes. This is where it sucks being just a foreign bystander, I wish there was an avenue to gripe ab...

Some KDramas can really tee people off, faithfully watching all 20 episodes just to be left hanging, It sucks.
On the other hand, treat it like Batman or Spider-man and we can have another season or sequel.

Is this a dentist convention or a chat on Coffee Prince. I always hoped the KDrama would take a hint from Japan and run a two night 2hr special and have a good ending/marriage on Coffee Prince. We have all read how they finished to get Gong Yoo off to the army could have probably gone one more episo...

My American neighbors can not understand this addiction I have to K & J Dramas. I try and explain to them the difference and I realized it boils down to this: I like to watch dramas that have an ending. Think about it, how many people would read a book knowing that the last chapter is missing? My wi...
