On Remakes and Off Tangent

I have to confess that my first reaction to reading the recent news about OCN remaking Life on Mars was a horrified “NO WAY!!” Let’s be real here, Korea’s track record with remakes is pretty awful. I don’t want them anywhere near this show. And it’s the Overly Cruel Network to boot. Ottokke! Continue reading

The Year End Drama Grab Bag

I really wasn’t planing on leaving this to the last day of the year, but as so often this year RL got in the way.

Tribes and Empires: Storm of Prophesy

I think people have been waiting what feels like hundred years for this. ๐Ÿ˜€ I remember being all impressed with the trailers and occasional production photos released early 2016. Sometimes it can take years for cdramas to get an air date, so Tribes & Empires actually came out pretty fast. Considering it’s a huge production with plenty of cgi, locasion shoots and a very large cast. Continue reading
