Betrayal, conspiracy, and bickering partners in melodrama Monster
by | March 21, 2016 | 25 Comments
You know, if only Monster weren’t a 50-episode drama, I’d probably be all revved up and rarin’ to go — the second teaser is out, and it looks intense and full of angsty performances. (Note: On desktop, the video player autoplays, so turn your sound down or get ready to hit pause if you don’t... More »

Tears, guns, and revenge drive Monster’s first teaser
by | March 18, 2016 | 41 Comments
It took a little digging, but I eventually managed to find the first teaser for MBC’s revenge-melo series Monster, which has apparently taken the restrict-all-social-media-availability approach to promotion, which seems rather counterproductive if you ask me. It’s too bad, since I like the look of the show; we’ll just have to see if MBC decides... More »

Monster’s rags-to-riches transformation and rebellious chaebol
by | March 2, 2016 | 26 Comments
Here we have a handful of new stills for Monster, MBC’s upcoming revenge melodrama starring Kang Ji-hwan in what seems to be his favorite type of transformation, from disheveled beggar to sleek urbane city man. Why are those always his two options? I do admit that he sure can make a makeover satisfying, probably because... More »

After circling on the casting-go-round for a while, MBC’s upcoming revenge melodrama Monster is finally winding down, its main casting complete. Kang Ji-hwan was cast last month as the hero out to seek his revenge against the greedy rich elites who trampled his family, followed by Park Ki-woong as a dissipated chaebol villain, Jo Boa...

Ah, finally news of a potential leading lady for Monster, the revengey melo starring Kang Ji-hwan whose life is trampled by the super elite and who then sets out for payback.

MBC’s Monster adds Park Ki-woong, Jo Boa as spoiled chaebols
by | February 1, 2016 | 47 Comments
Oh great, now I HAVE to watch Monster. I mean, yay I have to watch Monster? I’m not even sure anymore. (It isn’t that it sounds bad; it’s that this is one of those serious, sprawling 50-episode dramas, and man, those take work.) But with Kang Ji-hwan (Incarnation of Money, Big Man) headlining the series... More »

MBC melo Monster secures Kang Ji-hwan to headline
by | January 21, 2016 | 76 Comments
Ah, this casting makes more sense: Kang Ji-hwan (Big Man) is now confirmed as the leading man in MBC’s upcoming 50-episode melodrama Monster (formerly titled Tyrant), while relative newcomer Seo Kang-joon (Cheese in the Trap) is no longer in consideration for the show. It seemed so strange to have a young rookie like Seo being... More »

Kang Ji-hwan becomes a daddy for new MBC drama
by | January 13, 2016 | 29 Comments
This new drama sounds like it’ll probably be a comedy, so it could be a fun new project for Kang Ji-hwan (Big Man), an actor I much prefer in comedic roles. He’s good at dramatic stuff too, but he’s got a particular zing when he’s playing something for laughs, and the more outlandish the comedy,... More »

KBS nixes potential Kang Ji-hwan–Moon Geun-young drama Home Alone
by | July 22, 2015 | 30 Comments
Remember Home Alone, that new drama that was aiming to pair Kang Ji-hwan and Moon Geun-young as love interests that was announced all of two days ago? Well never mind, you can go ahead and forget it now, because that’s what KBS is doing—it has backpedaled and removed the drama from the schedule. It’s a... More »

by | July 19, 2015 | 77 Comments
Good news: Kang Ji-hwan (Big Man) and Moon Geun-young (Goddess of Fire Jung-yi) may be teaming up for a new drama! Aw, I’ve missed them in good dramas! Less good news news: The drama comes from writer Kim Do-hyun of tvN’s weirdly mishmashed rom-com-murder drama My Secret Hotel, and is produced by Dream E&M, which... More »
