Kim Haneul to romance a student in Teacher
by | May 19, 2015 | 51 Comments
I know that Kim Haneul (You’re My Pet, A Gentleman’s Dignity) doing a noona romance isn’t all that new for her, but this new movie sounds like it’ll be pushing the envelope. She’s currently considering an offer to star in the new film Teacher, about a dangerous love affair between a high school student and... More »

Director Kim Ji-woon (I Saw the Devil, The Good, the Bad, the Weird) is back with a new action movie, a period piece set during the Japanese occupation called Secret Agent.

Cha Seung-won to follow up Hwajeong with another Joseon-era sageuk
by | May 11, 2015 | 11 Comments
I guess we won’t be seeing Cha Seung-won in this century anytime soon, because he’s following up his current 50-episode historical drama Hwajeong with a new movie also set in Joseon. (Though you know what we’re really waiting for is another stint as Chajumma on Three Meals a Day: Fishing Village. *puppy eyes*) The film... More »

Guns blazing and plots in motion for period action movie Assassination
by | April 28, 2015 | 100 Comments
Ha Jung-woo, Jeon Ji-hyun, and Lee Jung-jae as a trio of badasses? By now those things are just a given considering their track record (Ha: Kundo, The Terror Live; Jeon: You From Another Star, The Thieves; Lee: Face Reader, New World), but that doesn’t make their new period action film Assassination look any less fun....

Kim Nam-gil and Jeon Do-yeon get dangerously close in The Shameless
by | April 27, 2015 | 37 Comments
This might be a movie that I check out for the acting performances, though it’ll have to be a dark and gloomy kind of day to get me in the mood. Jeon Do-yeon (The Way Home, Countdown) and Kim Nam-gil (Pirates, Shark) pair up for the “hardboiled melo” The Shameless, about a detective who goes... More »

Angry Mom’s breakout rookie Ji-soo joins youth movie
by | April 24, 2015 | 63 Comments
Agh, I love this kid. So, so much. I know that rookie actor Ji-soo’s charm is ninety-five percent Go Bok-dong, his tough-on-the-outside, gooey-cookie-on-the-inside high school badass character in MBC’s Wednesday-Thursday drama Angry Mom. My brain knows this, but the drama is still current and I haven’t really worked out the separation yet. But really, a... More »

Yoo Yeon-seok tempts Im Soo-jung with the Perfect Proposal
by | April 23, 2015 | 44 Comments
I don’t know why it always trips me up to see Yoo Yeon-seok as a dark character, since that’s pretty much the type he always plays in movies. It’s just that Answer Me 1994 and Youths Over Flowers left such a strong impression that the sadistic bad guy characters feel like such a departure now.... More »

Kim Soo-hyun courted for split-personality crime thriller
by | April 3, 2015 | 37 Comments
So I guess this means the split-personality trend isn’t going to die anytime soon? I’m starting to think that a leading man without dissociative identity disorder is becoming the rarity in film and television, because I just can’t seem to get away from it. Kim Soo-hyun may have turned down the split-personality drama Dr. Frankenstein,... More »

Kim Woo-bin looks at killer role in new action thriller
by | April 3, 2015 | 57 Comments
It looks like Kim Woo-bin will be sticking to the big screen for the time being. I was sad about him turning down the Hong sisters drama (that is, until Yoo Yeon-seok came along and made it right as rain), but it’s good to see that his movie career is taking off. His current coming-of-age... More »

Im Shi-wan chooses period film Thoughts of Oppa
by | March 19, 2015 | 24 Comments
It seems like everyone’s been waiting on pins and needles for Im Shi-wan to choose his follow-up project to last year’s hit drama Misaeng. For good reason too, since expectations are high for the idol-actor who turned heads in his big screen debut (The Attorney opposite Song Kang-ho) and then became the mascot of the... More »
