We still don’t have a lead actress but casting continues on the much-buzzed-about remake project of Nodame Cantabile, which will be adding Tiny-G idol and Answer Me 1994 actress Do-hee to the mix as one of the supporting characters. (Some stories say she’s confirmed, others hedge that she’s not final yet, so it’s pretty much... More »

We have another addition to the cast of Korea’s remake of Nodame Cantabile, joining Joo-won in the music-university-set drama about a talented (but uptight) piano and conducting student and the cast of wacky musicians who surround him.

by | May 6, 2014 | 76 Comments
I hate when big casting news is released and then we’re told everything BUT the story, which is, in my opinion, kind of the most important thing. But we’ll have to make do with the peanuts we’ve been given about Xiao You Qiao Mu, the film project that Joo-won (Good Doctor) has announced will be... 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 »

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...
