Here are the posters for MBC’s new Wednesday-Thursday drama Queen’s Classroom, the Japanese drama remake starring Go Hyun-jung as a rigid and exacting dictator… turned sixth-grade teacher.

Looks like Go Hyun-jung’s new school-set drama The Queen’s Classroom isn’t messing around when it comes to child actors — they’ve cast not one but two big names (south of fifteen, that is) to be her co-stars.

It’s been three years since Go Hyun-jung last stopped by dramaland, by way of Daemul and Queen Seon-deok — she’s had an interesting detour as a talk show host, and is now set to return where I think she does best. She’s reportedly in talks to star as a teacher in the new drama Queen’s... More »

It’s too bad that Hyun Bin was missing from the 47th Baeksang Arts Awards, since he and his drama picked up a bunch of awards. (Alas, there’s that whole mandatory military thing.) Not only did he grab a Daesang in the TV portion (film Daesang went to Lee Byung-heon for his thriller I Saw the... More »
