Ryu Hwa-young, Park Hye-soo, Han Ye-ri, Han Seung-yeon, Park Eun-bin New actor interviews, character backgrounds and first teasers for JTBC’s Age of Youth have been released! And they’ve officially gotten me hooked. I’m super excited to watch this drama, and what’s got me hopping up and down with pre-drama jitters is mainly the actresses, who... 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 »
I’ve been intrigued by this new “reality-variety drama” concept ever since I first heard about it, and now we’re just a day away from the premiere of tvN’s After the Show Ends, which purports to be both a drama and reality-type series in one. That sounds contradictory, but I’m looking forward to how the show... More »
I honestly have no idea what they’re thinking with this casting. The new youth sports drama Weightlifting Fairy Kim Bok-ju is a story inspired by Olympic gold medalist weightlifter Jang Mi-ran, and modeled after her personal stories about being a young girl who was shy and awkward and only knew weightlifting. The drama has been... 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 »
Aw, cute. Here’s our first official peek at KBS’s upcoming Monday-Tuesday series Moonlight Drawn By Clouds, starring Park Bo-gum (Answer Me 1988) and Kim Yoo-jung (Angry Mom) in a youth romance set in Joseon. They look awfully adorable smiling and making moony eyes at each other, and Kim Yoo-jung looks so small that I wonder... More »
Aha, finally we have movement on Advance, the new drama from the writer of Punch and The Chaser, Park Kyung-soo, which was initially planned for an August launch but got pushed back (its planned timeslot going to Scarlet Heart: Goryeo instead). It’s now courting Lee Bo-young (God’s Gift — 14 Days) to star, which would... More »
Writer Jung Yoon-jung of the 2014 hit office manhwa-to-drama adaptation Misaeng (also Monstar, Arang and the Magistrate) is coming back to tvN in a big way with another adaptation of the popular romance manhwa Bride of the Water God. It was first announced in early 2015, but we’re finally seeing some movement on the project,... More »
Jang Hee-jin has been offered a leading role in upcoming KBS drama On the Way to the Airport, which previously confirmed casting Kim Haneul (A Gentleman’s Dignity) and Lee Sang-yoon (Twenty Again), and is positively considering it. She’s been busy at work on the currently airing fantasy sageuk Mirror of the Witch, so taking on... More »
New legal drama Woman With a Suitcase has secured a new home at MBC, and an offer is currently out to Choi Ji-woo (Twenty Again) to headline. I keep getting this drama confused with On the Way to the Airport, which has nothing to do with this series except for the travel-themed titles and the... More »
