It’s happening, it’s really happening: Jeon Ji-hyun is re-teaming with her You From Another Star writer, Park Ji-eun, for a new drama co-starring Lee Min-ho (Heirs), with a high likelihood of him reuniting with his City Hunter director, PD Jin Hyuk.

Lee David joins rom-com-horror drama Bring It On, Ghost
by | May 24, 2016 | 24 Comments
We’ve got another casting for Bring It On, Ghost, with Lee David (Mirror of the Witch) joining the rom-com-horror drama that pairs a ghost and an exorcist who end up living together, fighting together, and falling in love.

Ooh, after the fast-flying antics of High School King of Savvy and the adorable screwball comedy of Oh My Ghostess, I am definitely paying attention to PD Yoo Je-won’s next drama, which has just been announced for a fall broadcast on (as the others were) cable channel tvN.... More »
