The next Hong Sisters drama Big has started filming (Woot!), and it’s not much, but here’s a peek at leading man Gong Yoo playing both of his characters on the first day of the shoot.

I’ve never encountered someone who only plays guys in drama adaptations of comic books, but I guess it makes a certain kind of sense, given that he’s famous for looking like one. So after Boys Before Flowers and Playful Kiss, he’s set to return to dramaland... More »

Eun Ji-won stars in new sitcom
by | May 1, 2012 | 50 Comments
I’ve missed Eun Ji-won so dearly since his departure from hit variety show 1 Night 2 Days, but perhaps it won’t be long before he’s back on my to-watch roster again. On top of joining four variety shows as a regular, he’s added a new sitcom to his slate, and wait for it… IT’S SET... More »

Lee Seon-kyun‘s upcoming medical drama Golden Time (guh, still hate that title, but what else is new) has cast its heroine. Hwang Jung-eum (Can You Hear My Heart) has signed on to play the newbie intern medical student to Lee Seon-kyun’s Doctor Hotshot. Well isn’t that original.
