Kim Myung-min, Lee Min-ki drop Himalaya
by | December 14, 2013 | 18 Comments
Bad news for the based-on-a-true-story Everest movie Himalaya, which first lost Lee Min-ki and now has also lost Kim Myung-min. Is there even any point anymore? (Serious answer: I’m thinking no.) It appears the production is the trouble, with continued delays spurring the casting drop-outs. Lee Min-ki has already picked his next project, noir movie... More »

Lee Min-ki, doing noir? YES NOW PLEASE.

Lee Min-ki turns into a cold-blooded killer for Monster
by | May 13, 2013 | 46 Comments
Lee Min-ki does have a certain loose-cannon intensity to him that makes me think he’ll be a fabulous creep in the upcoming movie Monster, where he plays a murderer. Just look at that stare. Shivers. The movie centers around a girl, Bok-soon, whose little sister is killed by cruel and heartless Tae-soo. Bok-soon takes up... More »

Lee Min-ki and Kim Min-hee’s Temperature of Love

I didn’t expect Lee Min-ki and Kim Min-hee’s new rom-com Temperature of Love to be that funny, because the early stills made it seem more contemplative and heavy on the break-ups. But this teaser cracks me up. We find out right away that the breaking up is only the start for this foul-mouthed, quick-tempered couple... More »

So here’s a look at The Thousandth Man, the upcoming show starring Lee Chun-hee as the man in danger of becoming... More »
