"Let's Watch the Sunset" does not beat around the bush with its melodramatic value, because you don't get much more melodramatic than having consecutive grand statements made to the tunes of A Great Big World's "Say Something".

Seo-jin (played by Go Won-hee) is the final member of the main cast - the mother of the abandoned baby. Although she's the same age as the male leads, Seo-jin consistently and somewhat impressively manages to come off as even more dumb than they are. I approve of this, since Seo-jin's life is defined by her decision to have a baby with absolutely no plan for how to take care of it. The preview appears to imply that Seo-jin didn't even tell her ex-boyfriend...More

I thought I had already seen the worst (or best) that "A Korean Odyssey" can throw at us with Lee Seung-gi's furry conundrum of a coat, but I forgot that Cha Seung-won is a long-time model and therefore prime material for all manner of loud fashion shenanigans.

How much fun are the promotions for this? At first I was a bit skeptical about the premise, but with these fantastical teasers and the fun new posters, I'm started to get psyched. This most recent teaser has Yoo Seung-ho and the team of brains (er, scientists) battling over different modes on the "robot" Chae Soo-bin who ends up getting fed up with it all and yelling.

"I'm Not a Robot" certainly has a unique appeal and today we get to meet the titular not-a-robot in her synthetic-wannabe form. MBC has released stills of actress Chae Soo-bin in her gynoid form, colored contact lenses and all. Perhaps the scientist's concept is the eventual forming of a girl band.
