We finally have a heroine for Moonlight Drawn By Clouds, the youthful fusion sageuk starring Park Bo-gum (Answer Me 1988) that went through so many rounds of casting rumors that it was impossible to tell who got real offers and who didn’t. Names like Kim Ji-won (Descended From the Sun), Kim Go-eun (Cheese in the... More »

by | April 12, 2016 | 72 Comments
Aw, I feel like Lee Won-geun is graduating to the big leagues now. Despite the fact that his first big leading role (in KBS’s youth drama Sassy Go Go) wasn’t a commercial success, he left a good impression as a solid young actor, and now he gets to go toe-to-toe with Jeon Do-yeon in tvN’s...

by | April 12, 2016 | 114 Comments
Well I guess it’s apt for a drama called Jealousy Incarnate to have some broadcasters feuding jealously over who gets to air the drama on their station. Nothing’s been decided yet, but the new romantic comedy starring Gong Hyo-jin (It’s Okay, It’s Love) and Jo Jung-seok (Oh My Ghostess) spent the day being alternately claimed... More »

by | April 9, 2016 | 8 Comments
Is it just me, or are there a lot of prison movies in the works right now? This new story in particular sounds so similar to this one starring Kim Rae-won and Han Seok-kyu that I had to look it up to make sure it wasn’t the same film with a new cast. This undercover... More »

by | April 8, 2016 | 39 Comments
Well this is a strange development. New SBS weekend rom-com Beast’s Beauty was initially courting Baek Jin-hee (My Daughter Geum Sa-wol) to star opposite Namgoong Min (Remember—Son’s War). But Baek Jin-hee has turned down the offer, and so now they’re courting Girl’s Day idol Minah (Sweet Savage Family) for the part. Uh… I guess they... More »
