Park Bo-young, Song Chang-eui Park Bo-young (Oh My Ghostess) is confirmed for the title role in Strong Woman Do Bong-soon. I’m excited for her return to dramaland, and while there’s still very little plot info available, I love that she’s headlining in what is sure to be a spunky, strong role. Planned for a January...

In the span of a day, Im Soo-jung (Time Renegade) made drama fans’ hearts flutter, then cry. Im has been away from the small screen ever since the heart-wrenching melodrama I’m Sorry, I Love You. I know for a lot of us, it seems only like yesterday when she was romancing it up with terminally... More »

We have our first look at the upcoming SBS romantic-comedy drama Jealousy Incarnate. Filming for this project started in mid-June outside the Prism Tower in Yeoiudo with leads Jo Jung-seok (Oh My Ghostess) and Gong Hyo-jin (It’s Okay, It’s Love). From the title, you’d think that Jealousy Incarnate was some sort of makjang chaebol drama,... More »

That sounds contradictory, but I’m looking forward to how the show... More »

Seo In-gook, Nam Ji-hyun, Yoon Sang-hyun Hee, Shopping King Louie is the new drama that initially courted Yook Sung-jae to headline, and I find it funny that they’ve now cast Seo In-gook (Police Unit 38) in the role, since Yook Sung-jae’s drama debut in Answer Me 1994 had everyone calling him Little Seo In-gook. The... More »
