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 »

Joo-won considers folk band biopic
by | January 2, 2014 | 40 Comments
Joo-won is lining up the movie projects lately, so much that I’m worried he won’t have time for dramas in 2014. The horror. Don’t leave dramaland, okay? He’s considering a new movie called C’est Si Bon, named for the hit ’70s-’80s Korean folk band. It’s going to be a biopic about the band members when... 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 »

2013 MBC Drama Awards
by | December 30, 2013 | 240 Comments
Year-end awards are here! At least the first of the bunch is, with MBC putting on its ceremony the night before SBS and KBS follow suit with theirs. These awards ceremonies are historically more like thank-you gifts to actors than actual acting awards based on strength of performances, and it’s a fact I’ve long accepted... More »

Teaser and posters for chase rom-com Catch Me
by | November 16, 2013 | 38 Comments
Hee, I like the poster concept for Joo-won and Kim Ah-joong’s new romantic comedy movie Catch Me. There’s just inherent comedy in Joo-won grabbing Kim Ah-joong’s ankle to catch her; sure he’s the cop chasing the cat burglar, but it also has the double meaning of him being the clingy one in the relationship who...

1N2D loses more members, recasts for Season 3
by | November 6, 2013 | 110 Comments
Speaking of variety shows that have gone on too long, there’s a large-scale shake-up in store for KBS’s once-flagship Sunday variety show 1 Night 2 Days. On the heels of losing its youngest member, Joo-won, the show is also losing its main MC, Lee Su-geun… and potentially (probably) three others. My first reaction was that... More »

Joo-won and Kim Ah-joong’s new rom-com Catch Me
by | November 4, 2013 | 109 Comments
Sometimes I wonder if Joo-won cloned himself, because he’s in so many things that I often don’t know when he could’ve possibly filmed half of his projects. I had nearly forgotten about this one, a cops-and-robbers romantic comedy movie called Catch Me (previously called Only You), co-starring Kim Ah-joong (My P.S. Partner). The production released...

Joo-won in talks to take on Fashion King (no, a different one)
by | October 25, 2013 | 65 Comments
I woulda thought the title Fashion King would be an association to avoid at all costs, but nope, there’s a new movie in the works with that name, and Joo-won will be its hero. (Some articles tout his casting as a sure thing; a couple state that he’s considering and will decide on his next... More »

And so we must bid farewell to our pediatrics team with whom we’ve come to know and love through their dedication and devotion to the lives they save each day. Any good surgeon knows that one must close up cleanly to speed up the recovery process. But there are always unforeseen factors that serve to... More »
