Character posters and initial teasers have been released for JTBC’s upcoming medical-disaster drama D-Day, which is still a couple months from premiere but is well into shoots.

I’ve been waiting for Jung So-min (Big Man) to take on another drama, and would be very happy if she signed on JTBC’s upcoming disaster drama D-Day; she’s just surfaced as the main contender for a lead role in it, though the cable station was hasty to add that nothing’s been decided yet.

by | April 29, 2015 | 32 Comments
Well, I was fully expecting an idol lineup for the cast of JTBC’s new drama D-Day, since it was announced as a new drama production from SM C&C. I still wouldn’t call Kim Young-kwang an actor with “a weighty presence,” but I like him, especially in his more recent dramas where he’s found a good... More »

This episode is our big windup before the final pitch, where all our characters choose sides and reveal their true colors.
