Cheese in the Trap movie courts Park Ki-woong to play Baek In-ho
by | February 1, 2017 | 116 Comments
Ahh, this is a promising development: Park Ki-woong (Monster, Gaksital) is currently considering the Baek In-ho role in the Cheese in the Trap remake movie. After the tvN drama series fizzled out amid controversy and disgruntlement last year, I’ve been trying to keep hopes low and wariness on high about this movie version, but then... More »

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 »

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 »

by | July 30, 2014 | 32 Comments
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.

Sniffle. Park Ki-woong (Gaksital, Covertly Grandly, Full House Take 2) is now officially out of the dramaland ranks, at least for the next two years as he fulfills his mandatory military service.

Park Ki-woong to begin military service
by | February 25, 2014 | 77 Comments
Park Ki-woong (variety show Beating Hearts, Gaksital) will begin his mandatory military service on May 8. (Sniff, sniff – and there goes another one!) Perhaps due to a strong sense of civic responsibility, perhaps due to sage advice from his management (Wave On Entertainment), the actor will not fulfill his mandatory service in a special...

Casting finalizations are in for the Kim Ki-duk Film production Made In China, with Han Chae-ah now confirmed (having been previously considering) and Park Ki-woong joining her as leading man. Aw, Shunji and Rie, together again. (Hopefully not at each other’s throats in murderous-conflict-slash-tragic-commiseration this time around.)... More »

Park Ki-woong cast as zombie in omnibus film
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. This time he’s taking on his first zombie role in a 3-D omnibus film directed in three parts by Han Ji-seung (Papa),... More »
