Here’s a peek at SBS’s upcoming Monday-Tuesday drama Warm Words, set to take over Suspicious Housekeeper’s timeslot in just a few weeks. The 20-episode melodrama is about two married couples and one affair that threatens to unravel both households.

Han Hye-jin (26 Years, Syndrome) is heading back to Korea to shoot a drama, having relocated to England following her July wedding to soccer player Ki Sung-yong (who plays in the UK).

by | June 1, 2013 | 39 Comments
Another new show to add to that ever-growing list: SBS’s fall Monday-Tuesday drama looks like it might be A Warm Word, a drama full of mystery and scandal set among the lives of average couples.

A solid start to SBS’s newest late Goryeo-era sageuk, the premiere of The Great Seer (aka Daepoongsoo) delivered on setting an epic table for future conflict to come.

Ji Jin-hee picks sageuk for next drama
by | March 29, 2012 | 106 Comments
I wonder if Ji Jin-hee has an explicit career strategy to alternate sageuk with contemporary, since that’s basically what he’s been doing the past decade. There was Joseon-era Dae Jang Geum, then modern dramas Spotlight and The Man Who Can’t Marry, then back to sageuk for Dong Yi, back to the future for Take Care... More »
