Lee Jong-seok and Park Shin-hye courted for Pinocchio
by | August 21, 2014 | 152 Comments
Okay, this is one reunion I’m rooting for in dramaland: Lee Jong-seok is considering a reunion with the PD-writer team behind I Hear Your Voice, for their new fall drama Pinocchio. It might actually wash out the part of my brain that went mushy trying to hold onto some semblance of sanity while watching Doctor... More »

Han Jung-soo cast as Iron Man’s loyal bodyguard
by | August 20, 2014 | 42 Comments
Why does a man covered in knives need a bodyguard, you might ask? It’s a good question. Maybe he’s not so good at controlling his new knife-sprouting abilities and needs a babysitter? Han Jung-soo has joined the cast of KBS’s new supernatural drama Iron Man, where he’ll play Lee Dong-wook’s faithful secretary-bodyguard who goes everywhere... More »

Lee Young-ae eyes comeback with sageuk drama (not Dae Jang Geum 2)
by | August 20, 2014 | 32 Comments
Lee Young-ae may finally be making her comeback to dramaland—and to acting in general—and as this news has no relation whatsoever to MBC’s ill-fated Dae Jang Geum 2 project, I’m actually inclined to believe it might happen. Reports are out that Lee Young-ae is in talks to star in a new drama titled Shin Saimdang,... More »

Cantabile Tomorrow has its Masumi character
by | August 19, 2014 | 77 Comments
So the Masumi role isn’t to be left out of the Korean Nodame Cantabile remake, which is good news since I (and many fans, I’m sure) was quite fond of the character who loved the hero unabashedly and often challenged the heroine (in a harmless sort of way) for his love. (Which generally turned to... More »

Secret Door’s prince in action
by | August 19, 2014 | 17 Comments
This show is being pretty stingy with the stills for such a large cast, but I can forgive a lot for Lee Je-hoon’s return to the small screen. Here he is in action for SBS’s fusion sageuk Secret Door, where he’ll play a very different Crown Prince Sado from the version portrayed in history books.... More »

Nodame renames itself Cantabile Tomorrow
by | August 18, 2014 | 120 Comments
Well, the Korean remake of Nodame Cantabile has announced its final title change… although we’ve still got two months till the drama premieres so I still say there’s time for another renaming yet. For a while the show was just Nodame Cantabile, and then it was Cantabile Romance, and now it’s the awkwardly punny Cantabile... More »

Nine is the loneliest number in Plus Nine Boys
by | August 15, 2014 | 22 Comments
I’m loving this show’s teasers, but now I’m scared they’re getting my expectations up. New coming-of-age drama Plus Nine Boys released a really cute conceptual teaser about the four unluckiest boys on earth, and the dreaded number 9 that keeps dogging them with every possible superstitious omen out there: crows, black cats, broken mirrors, ice...

One last barrage of promos for the swashbuckling Three Musketeers
by | August 14, 2014 | 34 Comments
We don’t have much longer to wait before tvN premieres its latest drama, Three Musketeers, this coming weekend, so why not prepare for the event with a whole slew of pretty pictures? I’d call the drama as a whole an ensemble piece, but it feels a bit like a two-headliner deal with Lee Jin-wook in... More »

tvN launches its own award ceremony
by | August 13, 2014 | 86 Comments
The Big Three broadcasters have one more reason to be wary of tvN, which is nipping at their heels as a rival — and doing a frankly bang-up job of becoming a worthy competitor despite its smaller, newer rookie status as a cable programmer. Now tvN has announced that it’ll be launching its own awards... More »
