Production is underway for the new Hong sisters horor romantic comedy Master’s Sun, starring Gong Hyo-jin and So Ji-sub, set to premiere later this month.

Big: Episode 2
by | June 5, 2012 | 269 Comments
Well that’s better. It’s like it took an episode to rev up (which makes sense given the premise, but it did feel surprisingly subdued).

Suzy? With Gong Yoo? Um… isn’t that stretching the boundaries of cradle robbery? Oh wait… I guess that’s the point… but damn. So the next Hong sisters drama is the upcoming KBS rom-com Big, about an 18-year old hero trapped in the body of a 30-something man. Yunno, all Tom-Hanksy with the piano feet. (If... More »
