Sung Joon considers JTBC’s Madame Antoine
by | October 14, 2015 | 57 Comments
So Sung Joon (High Society) is up to join Han Ye-seul (Birth of a Beauty) in the upcoming JTBC drama Madame Antoine, which strikes me as… an interesting pairing. Maybe I mean odd. Maybe even a little mismatched? The drama is the medical-rom-com series about clinical psychologists that comes from the PD of My Name... More »

Revenge spurs romance in Birth of a Beauty
by | October 29, 2014 | 53 Comments
I hadn’t realized that makeover rom-com Birth of a Beauty was a revenge story (albeit a super-lighthearted one), but that’s a detail I can see working for the premise. It’s not a revenge drama per se (in that I don’t expect the whole show to follow the heroine’s vengeance path), but that’ll provide us with... More »

SBS’s weekend drama Birth of a Beauty is ramping up its casting process with Han Ye-seul (Myung-wol the Spy) and Jung Kyeo-woon (God’s Gift – 14 Days) surfacing as the latest names in contention for the leads (which I suppose indicates that Joo Sang-wook may be out of the running.
