Ooh, interesting. Dramaland is pursuing a Korean remake of hit Japanese drama (and manga and anime) Nodame Cantabile, and while it’s only in the very early stages, already the property has generated a lot of buzz about potential casting. The first big name to be floated as the clumsy but lovable heroine was IU, but... More »

Here’s the last of this year’s drama awards over at KBS, where God of the Workplace, Good Doctor, and Secret were the big winners of the evening. Unsurprisingly, Kim Hye-soo took home the Daesang for her performance in God of the Workplace. She’s fabulous; her outfit, not so much. Just wait for it. Joo-won took... More »

Pretty Man: Episode 1
by | November 20, 2013 | 268 Comments
New kid on the block Pretty Man premiered today on KBS, and it was exactly as advertised—a nice dose of bubbly, cute fun. It’s a manhwa adaptation, so you have to go in with the expectation that wacky hijinks and broad characterizations are in store, but I was pleasantly surprised to find that they’re anchored...

First teaser and more stills for Pretty Man
by | November 8, 2013 | 69 Comments
The first teaser is out for Pretty Man, along with a few more couple stills, and while I still don’t really know what the story is going to be (other than one man going after ten women using his extensive “dating know-how”), the tone looks pretty cute. Light, fluffy, and hopefully zippy. The teaser’s pretty... More »

More photos from Pretty Man, this time from the drama proper as well as its poster shoots. I must say, while the story still seems riddled with question marks, the pictures do look super cute, featuring our lead couple played by Jang Geun-seok and IU.

These photos aren’t from the drama proper, only the pre-show prayer ceremony, but I think they count as our first look at Pretty Man, the upcoming KBS romantic comedy starring Jang Geun-seok (as the titular pretty man), Lee Jang-woo (as the pretty-hearted second lead), IU as the (supposedly) utterly average heroine, and Han Chae-young playing...

IU to pine after Jang Geun-seok in Pretty Man
by | October 21, 2013 | 109 Comments
Confirmations are in for singer-actress IU, who’s signing on to star in KBS’s new Wednesday-Thursday drama Pretty Man just weeks after wrapping her long weekender You’re the Best, Lee Soon-shin. It’s an unfortunate title, given that Lee Soon-shin was not the best, but IU was quite lovable in the headlining role anyway, despite the head-scratchy... More »
