The laughter begins in Cantabile Tomorrow’s second teaser
by | September 30, 2014 | 13 Comments
Not that I was worried, but I’m glad that this show intends to be funny. The first teaser for KBS’s new Monday-Tuesday drama Cantabile Tomorrow was more lyrical and contemplative, but the second teaser brings out more of the bubbly feel I expect from the drama. There’s always the risk of the comedy going too... More »

Cantabile Tomorrow’s light, sentimental first teaser
by | September 25, 2014 | 94 Comments
The first teaser’s out for Cantabile Tomorrow, and I’m liking what I see. It’s not overtly funny, but has a light, sensitive touch (inasmuch as we can judge in thirty seconds), and the tone, cinematography, and use of music—Mendelssohn’s 4th—is really working for me. In the trailer, Joo-won says in voice-over: “The moment he waved... More »

So far I’ve been satisfied with the casting behind Cantabile Tomorrow, KBS’s remake of Japanese drama/anime/manga Nodame Cantabile, and now that we’re starting to see stills of the cast members in character, I continue to be cautiously optimistic. These first four images feature four of the more visible supporting characters, and at least visually, I... More »

by | September 14, 2014 | 67 Comments
Here we go, our first look at Joo-won in character for Cantabile Tomorrow, the Nodame Cantabile remake. I’m still holding off on making judgments on liking/hating the remake, but I’m allowing myself to feel cautiously hopeful, and I do feel like Joo-won looks the part of the hero, Cha Yoo-jin (Chiaki of the original). Not... More »

First look at Fashion King (the movie)
by | September 5, 2014 | 25 Comments
Fans of the original webtoon may have been upset about the casting decisions made for the movie edition of Fashion King, but as a novice to the material (I failed to watch the poorly received 2012 drama remake, as well), this roundup of actors looks pretty appealing. The upcoming film is based on the eponymous... More »

Nodame renames itself Cantabile Tomorrow
by | August 18, 2014 | 120 Comments
Well, the Korean remake of Nodame Cantabile has announced its final title change… although we’ve still got two months till the drama premieres so I still say there’s time for another renaming yet. For a while the show was just Nodame Cantabile, and then it was Cantabile Romance, and now it’s the awkwardly punny Cantabile... More »

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. The quirky heroine role of Nodame is still up for grabs (Shim Eun-kyung ended up passing), but we... More »

Joo-won signs on to joint Chinese-Korean melo romance
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 »

Ahhh, it’s happening! Joo-won (Good Doctor, Gaksital) will be playing the lead character in the Korean remake of Nodame Cantabile, which had been previously suggested but only now confirmed. Wheeee! The female lead is not yet cast and will be absolutely crucial to making an adaptation work, but the name being offered as a contender... More »

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 »
