I always enjoy when an actor finishes up a project and has time to do the interview circuit, and Joo-won is pulling double-duty, with his drama Yong-pal recently wrapped and his upcoming movie That Man just about to release. That’s good for fans, since he recently gave a ton of interviews, and I’ve been reading... More »

Wait, wait, I get to see Yoo Yeon-seok (Warm and Cozy) and Lee Seon-kyun (A Hard Day) on my screen at the same time? But where will I look? When Lee Seon-kyun was first announced for the manhwa adaptation King’s Case Files, about a king and his sidekick solving crimes together, I was picturing a... More »
Interesting. The Tooth and the Nail is the movie that was once courting Han Seok-kyu to headline, but stalled somewhere along the way in development. It’s back now with a brand new cast, led by Go Soo (Tailors), who plays a man in search of a killer after the death of his fiancée.... More »
