This first teaser for Wanted is short, but it’s a good one — right off the bat, it’s mysterious, sinister, and gets out its premise boldly and efficiently. If the teaser’s style is indicative of the rest of the series (and that’s not always the case), we may be in for a solid summer thriller.... More »
Han Ji-min (Hyde, Jekyll, Me) is currently considering an offer to star in the new fantasy drama from PD Yoo Je-won, of the hilariously zany tvN comedies High School King of Savvy and Oh My Ghostess. I just love his wit and comic timing. He’s coming back with a new series for tvN this fall... More »
I like the sweet springtime feel of the new poster for KBS’s Uncontrollably Fond, which goes hand in hand with the latest teaser, featuring the college campus love story between leads Kim Woo-bin (Heirs) and Suzy (Gu Family Book). It’s the idyllic romance before a painful separation and years on separate paths turn them into... More »
It’s a short series, but based on these teasers, Baek-hee Has Returned is shaping up to be a cute, funny interlude in between dramas. The four-episode mini-drama stars Kang Ye-won (Bad Guys) as a former It Girl in her sleepy island town named Yang Baek-hee, who left abruptly at eighteen and then comes back eighteen... More »
Okay, this actually isn’t a huge role, but the casting makes me excited because Yoon Ji-hye (Jackpot) and Jo Jin-woong (Signal) shared a cute side loveline in the movie Kundo: Age of the Rampant, and now they’re going to reunite as a married couple in tvN’s remake of Entourage. Jo Jin-woong plays a high-powered agent... More »
The first script reading for tvN’s upcoming supernatural rom-com drama Bring It On, Ghost just took place, and reportedly the chemistry was off the charts. Starring Kim So-hyun (Who Are You—School 2015) and Ok Taecyeon (Assembly), this drama is about a ghost girl and an exorcist boy who fight their way into love.... More »
Admittedly these first stills from SBS’s upcoming thriller Wanted aren’t that thrilling, but I suppose I can wait a little while longer for the thrills kick in; with its high-concept crime-mystery plot, I anticipate that once it gets going, it won’t let up anytime soon. At least, that had better be the case, since it’s... More »
Character descriptions have been released along with a teaser for SBS’s new Monday-Tuesday drama Doctors, in which Park Shin-hye (Pinocchio) undergoes a transformation from troubled teen to neurosurgery fellow. It turns out that Kim Rae-won (Punch) not only plays her sunbae surgeon at the hospital, but also her high school biology teacher. But, why? Kim... More »
It’s happening, it’s really happening: Jeon Ji-hyun is re-teaming with her You From Another Star writer, Park Ji-eun, for a new drama co-starring Lee Min-ho (Heirs), with a high likelihood of him reuniting with his City Hunter director, PD Jin Hyuk. Is China even going to be able to handle the excitement? I half expect... More »
Aw, they kind of look cute together. I mean, he looks very much like her older wiser sunbae, but that’s the dynamic in the drama, right? Maybe it’s just that Kim Rae-won (Punch) is permanently seared into my brain as the perfect oppa-next-door type, so I’ll always see him as that. Here’s a peek at... More »
