by | May 1, 2016 | 35 Comments
I’ll try not to be alarmist about this, but it’s difficult to follow the news of KBS’s upcoming Beautiful Mind and not think it’s going worryingly awry. Recent reports have stated that the drama, which is set to premiere next month and hasn’t secured a lead actress yet, went ahead and held a test shoot... More »

Park So-dam in consideration to join Jang Hyuk in Beautiful Mind
by | April 13, 2016 | 25 Comments
It’s an unexpected choice, but medical mystery drama Beautiful Mind, which is currently courting Jang Hyuk (Master of Trade—Inn 2015) to headline, is also now considering casting 2015’s It Girl Park So-dam opposite him. Both are in consideration with neither confirmed yet, but okay, I’m intrigued. It would be quite a jump for Park to... More »

by | April 4, 2016 | 62 Comments
Well this is a whole new direction. New medical mystery drama Beautiful Mind is kind of the Goldilocks of dramaland right now, trying out every leading man under the sun to find just the right one. So far the direction has been quite obvious, based on the actors who have passed on the project: Kim... More »

Last up for the Big 3 broadcasters are the KBS Drama Awards, which had a few big stars in attendance and gave out many (many, many) awards, despite not having any huge hits this year. They also chose to split the Daesang... More »

Master of Trade—Inn 2015 to end with 41 episodes
by | December 16, 2015 | 39 Comments
First and foremost, I find it confusing and oddly funny that I can’t tell from this news whether Master of Trade—Inn 2015 is being cut or extended. Most reports call it an extension but the various articles have conflicting counts, which differ again with the news articles previously published in earlier publicity rounds. The KBS... More »

by | September 15, 2015 | 27 Comments
KBS sageuk Master of Trade—Inn 2015 has released a batch of posters (and a bunch of stills as well), and they’re really quite lovely. Sometimes sageuk dramas have a tendency to churn out posters that look like every other sageuk drama out there, but I always like when a production manages to make theirs pop.... More »

The upward climb begins in KBS’s Master of Trade—Inn 2015
by | September 1, 2015 | 53 Comments
The first teaser for KBS’s sageuk drama Master of Trade—Inn 2015 gave us a taste of the overall premise of the drama (merchants of Joseon!) but not its plot (…what about the merchants of Joseon?), so I’m glad that the second teaser shows a little more of the story. (A little. I’ll still take it.)... More »

Jang Hyuk, Han Chae-ah courted for period drama The Innkeeper
by | July 3, 2015 | 40 Comments
My first reaction to hearing about this possible casting was that it sounded perfect, so here’s to hoping that Jang Hyuk (Shine or Go Crazy) and Han Chae-ah (Mi-rae’s Choice) sign on to KBS’s upcoming period drama The Innkeeper, offers for which both actors have received and are currently considering. The Innkeeper is a sprawling... More »
