Yoo Seung-ho is a king again
by | May 19, 2009 | 26 Comments
Yoo Seung-ho is only fifteen, but already he’s played a king twice: first, as Bae Yong-joon‘s younger counterpart in Legend, and now in the upcoming Queen Seon-deok.

by | May 18, 2009 | 61 Comments
I’ve always thought Yoon Sang-hyun was a pretty charismatic guy — he was pretty decent back in Fireworks (his character was an ass and the drama sucked, but he and Kang Ji-hwan were enjoyable) and he was cute in Three Dads, One Mom — so it’s nice to see him... More »
