The first teaser for MBC’s new romantic comedy Lucky Romance is out, and it kinda makes me think that Hwang Jung-eum is playing the same character she usually plays in rom-coms, and Ryu Joon-yeol is playing his Answer Me 1988 character again.

MBC’s probably got another rom-com hit on their hands now that Hwang Jung-eum (She Was Pretty, Kill Me, Heal Me) has officially accepted the offer to headline Lucky Romance, an adaptation of a quirky webtoon about a luck-obsessed heroine, a penny-pinching landlord, and a plot to cure a streak of bad luck with a one-night...

Ah, this casting makes more sense: Kang Ji-hwan (Big Man) is now confirmed as the leading man in MBC’s upcoming 50-episode melodrama Monster (formerly titled Tyrant), while relative newcomer Seo Kang-joon (Cheese in the Trap) is no longer in consideration for the show.

by | January 8, 2016 | 30 Comments
The MBC project formerly known as Tyrant has opted for a name change, and is now going by Monster (it’s the English word transliterated into Korean, not a Korean word meaning monster). I don’t think Monster’s a bad title for a drama, but it does kinda seem to me to be one step down on... More »
