2. Single releases have been a greater number of not-watch than watch. Shadow Detective isn't different except Lee Sung-min is leading this one. 'Don't forget how good he was in Juvenile Justice and watch it'.

3. Kim Dong-woooook. I'm in.

4. Sacred Divorce just got sacreder. Jung Moon-sung ☺️☺️. Whoever is the casting director for this drama is hitting all my right spots. Be on screen already Sacred Divorce. I'm waiting for you🥰.

It's almost time for 5's marriage selection.

Wow! May It Please The Court is here already. Lee Kyu-hyung + Jung Jin-young + legal = watch.

Prayer circle for Kang Hoon to be released from Second Leaddom here:

I thought he was the male protagonist because he was cast first, or something like that, or maybe the initial reports mistakenly billed his name first. Seems like they're deviating from the novel because his character was more like 3rd male lead, and has no love line with the female protagonist.

He is listed second here, and on MDL he's listed second to the other ML also, which is what initially drove my comment. I don't follow casting news off db really. Ofc, MDL is not always accurate, and I have no idea about the novel, so... *shrugs*?

So I tried posting a proper prayer circle of emojis here but DB comments f*cked up the placement. Whatever. Definitely not mad that they ruined something stupid that took painstaking time. Definitely not.

Anyway i join your prayer circle. Trying to have hope that they’ll just give him a secondary romance with a SFL, but given how these flower boy stories typically go, I think we have to prepare for heartbreak.

1) I don't trust Shin Ye-Eun's choices of dramas...
2) The casting looks good but it's on Disney...
3)KDW looks very busy.
6) A legal drama on Disney, too many legal dramas on a not very friendly with Kdramas lovers channel
7) I found the main actress extremely thin in the teaser. This drama needs more food trucks.

1. Now THAT is a proper flowerboy lineup reminiscent of the ensemble casts of yore!! I'm not into fluffy sageuk but this definitely piqued my interest.

I wouldn't say it's all the rage again, but there is another "flower boy" drama in the works, it's about former idol group mates running a supermarket.

Thanks for the heads-up. I'll wait to see who they'll cast.

Wow, that’s an awesome premise. Surprised I didn’t hear of it yet given that I’m typically up-to-date on drama news. I’ll look out for it.

1. That’s a PROPER flower boy lineup if I’ve ever seen one. But Ryeoun as the male lead over Kang Hoon? Hmmm…

2. Another Disney+ exclusive with a banger cast. Somebody please free them.

3. Kim Dong-wook and Chun Woo-hee. I’m sold!

4. The title Sacred Divorce still cracks me up.

5. Has this ever been the drama with the most prerelease promos? Maybe not number one, but it’s definitely up there.

6. As much as we’re in peak law drama saturation right now and want to strangle anyone trying to make more, I cannot turn down Jung Ryeo-won or Lee Kyu-hyung.

7. Honestly? I’m looking forward to this. It’s a combination of Sassy Go Go nostalgia, the promise of a nice campus setting, and washing away the stain of Bae In-hyuk in Why Her? for me.
