I’m sending all my good vibes to this show and willing it to please be good, because I can’t handle another bad drama for Jung Il-woo (Records of a Night Watchman).

Park So-dam, Jung Il-woo I was bracing myself for them to pair Jung Il-woo with someone disappointing, but I couldn’t be happier with this news. I really like up-and-comer Park So-dam, who was the big breakout actress in film this last year (Black Priests, Veteran, C’est Si Bon, Sado, The Silenced, The Royal Tailor). She’s... More »

Well this is a relief. I was beginning to worry that Jung Il-woo (Records of a Night Watchman) would keep doing projects abroad and be absent from dramaland for far too long, and that just won’t do. He might be returning in a new teen drama called You’re the First along with Ahn Jae-hyun, who... More »

Hm, having some trouble locking down a vampire hero, are we? I know that Yoo Yeon-seok and Jung Il-woo were only entertaining offers to headline KBS’s new vampire medical drama Blood, but when a series has this much trouble casting, it always makes me wonder what’s wrong with it.

Yoo Yeon-seok (Answer Me 1994) won’t be taking on KBS’s upcoming fantasy-medical vampire drama Blood after all — his schedule didn’t work out, which is no surprise given how jam-packed that sucker is — but at least Jung Il-woo is in the mix to take the leading role, which dulls the disappointment a bit. I’m... More »
