by | July 21, 2014 | 34 Comments
Erm… the previews for action-sageuk drama Three Musketeers looked pretty spiffy, but what say you to this photo shoot of the cast members (Lee Jin-wook, Jung Yong-hwa, Yang Dong-geun, and newcomer Jung Hae-in) in the new issue of Vogue? Cool and modern, or cheesy Ren-Faire costuming? Three Musketeers premieres on August 17. Tags: Jung Yong-hwa,... More »

Employment equals life for Surplus Princess
by | July 21, 2014 | 37 Comments
Character teasers are out for the fantasy-workplace-romance drama Surplus Princess, continuing tvN’s streak of bubbly, light-hearted previews for its romantic comedies. I still contend that mermaid fantasy and office drama are a random pairing, but they’re taking the title pun all the way, it seems (Surplus Princess and Little Mermaid, that is). Jo Boa stars...

Kisses and post-breakup bitterness in Discovery of Romance
by | July 21, 2014 | 42 Comments
The great thing about a rom-com where your lead characters are exes is that you can just go ahead and start the promo with lovey-dovey cuteness — the happier they are at the outset, the harder they fall. The first set of teasers are out for KBS’s upcoming Monday-Tuesday drama Discovery of Romance, showing Eric... More »

Rain considers new SBS drama Song For You
by | July 18, 2014 | 55 Comments
It’s just an early offer, but Rain is reportedly considering the new SBS drama Song For You, the latest project from the PD-writer team behind Dr. Champ and Scent of a Woman. I guess that means his other possible drama project Indian Summer fizzled out in development, because it’s been months since we heard anything... More »

Three previews for Three Musketeers
by | July 16, 2014 | 75 Comments
Ooh, these teasers for Three Musketeers sure are gorgeous. Okay, they don’t tell us anything and are far more style than substance, but with a title like that and a background story that’s as (in)famous as that of Crown Prince Sohyeon, who died a mysterious death that has spurred speculation throughout the centuries, I suppose...

Nodame Watch: Shim Eun-kyung’s hat goes back in the ring
by | July 15, 2014 | 119 Comments
The search for the heroine of KBS’s Nodame Cantabile remake — now called Cantabile Romance — is veering into its own farcical saga at this point. Shim Eun-kyung (Miss Granny) initially turned down an early offer to play the heroine, which was a crying shame since she’d be so perfect for the role. And then... More »

Yoon-ah out of Nodame Cantabile remake
by | July 14, 2014 | 285 Comments
The internet has spoken: Yoon-ah will not be taking the lead role in the Korean adaptation of Nodame Cantabile, which by the way is operating under the working title Cantabile Romance. (I suppose it makes sense, since Nodame is the Japanese character’s name and will probably change for a Korean drama.) According to Yoon-ah’s management,... More »

Lee Jun-hyuk eyes My Spring Days as comeback drama
by | July 11, 2014 | 19 Comments
I love it when an actor’s army duty speeds by (seemingly) quickly, since so many times it can feel painful waiting for them to return. So I’m happy to hear that Lee Jun-hyuk (Equator Man, City Hunter) is now looking at comeback projects in earnest, having returned to civilian life in March. The project he’s... More »
