I am of two minds of this freshly released photo shoot featuring Park Ki-woong, the last one he shot before enlisting in army duty back in May, because (1) yay pretty Park Ki-woong photos! and (2) sad, now you’ve just reminded me that Park Ki-woong is in the army for the next two years.

by | November 24, 2013 | 25 Comments
Well you can never fault Park Ki-woong (Covertly, Grandly) for playing it safe. I love that he always picks something new and different to play, and more importantly does it all with gusto.

Kim Soo-hyun plays the fool for Covertly, Grandly’s first teaser
by | April 17, 2013 | 79 Comments
Thank goodness Covertly, Grandly looks hilarious, which is a relief since there are two ways this kind of wacky, outrageous premise can go: awesome, or cringeworthy. The movie is a spy-action-comedy starring Kim Soo-hyun (The Moon That Embraces the Sun) as an elite, even legendary North Korean spy sent on a mission to South Korea…... More »
