Working together with Kwon Nara (Bulgasal – Immortal Souls), Yoo In-soo (Death’s Game), and Eum Moon-seok (Good Job), the studio will be opening its doors on March 11 in the Monday-Tuesday slot.

  • Checking in on tvN’s Wedding Impossible, the latest promos have our jobbing actor Jeon Jong-seo (Bargain) seesawing between the conflicting requests of two brothers. With Kim Do-wan (Doona) wanting (fake) marriage and Moon Sang-min (Duty After School) against, the rom-com premieres later this month on February 26. [MBC (1), (2)]

  • On KBS, journalist Kim Haneul (Kill Heel) is commanding the search for truth in the new poster for Grabbed by the Collar. Alongside ex-boyfriend Yeon Woo-jin (Daily Dose of Sunshine) and current husband Jang Seung-jo (Death’s Game), the crime-thriller is set to unfold in March with Bae Soo-young penning the scripts and Lee Ho at the helm.

  • The question of truth is on Kim Nam-joo’s (Misty) mind as well, as her once happy life is shattered in the newest posters for MBC’s Wonderful World. Following Knight Flower in the weekend slot, the revenge-mystery will be launching on March 1, with Cha Eun-woo (A Good Day to Be a Dog), Kim Kang-woo (Artificial City), and Im Se-mi (The Worst of Evil) also headlining the series.

1. Why does he look like Ahn Bo-hyun or am I losing my mind?

2. Poor Jeon Jong-seo whitewashed so hard she became one with the curtain.

3. "...and current husband" and she's dressing like that?? Like she wants to attract women??!? Jang Seung-jo MOVE.

4. Love Kim Nam-joo with all my heart, but I'm not ready for Knight Flower to be over.

5. It's annoying how nepotism lets some rando get leading roles out of nowhere while hundreds of talented working actors have to bust their asses off (and fake-marry their gay best friend!!) and get nothing but debt and misery in return (the nepo baby in question is Jang Da-ah, whose younger sister is famous k-pop it girl Jang Wonyoung).

6. She's so beautiful and stunning and gorgeous. If Kim Soo-hyun gives her trouble, she can leave him and come to me; I would do anything for her, no matter what.

Wedding impossible and Queen of tears two contrasting promo approaches. Wedding impossible shows the context of the drama clearly whilst Queen of tears seems to be fan service and wardrobe PPL covered in one go. I am looking forward to both and live in hope that they will keep me entertained for the duration.

Uh. Queen of Tears is going to be the PPL blockbuster. I detest it but still looking forward to this show.

I have just realised the multiple layers of PPL used in different dramas. The background items usually the car with a brief zoom in on a particular feature on the dashboard or that itโ€™s electric. The long lingering shot of a coffee machine while one of the leads makes a drink alone. The in your face โ€˜have one of these to help you focus close up of the name of said coffee flavoured sweet. Make up that makes your skin so soft or more recently hand cream that smells really nice.

I think quality dramas with top stars do more of background and long shots with quality brands with instantly recognisable logos, products that speak for themselves. I am really looking forward to seeing what the in your face products are. If they use Subway or Kopiko it will only make sense if itโ€™s a reminder of the male leads poor background or student nights or late working on projects in his early days at the company.

1. Lovely octarine background for the magic dimples.

2. That just slashed my interest in this show by 50%.

4a. The Return of the Pink Poster.

4b. "Men emerging from women's heads" is the poster theme I would not have predicted to continue into 2024. Dare we hope this is the last of it?

Why thank you for noticing! Indigo is a color I adore. But adding the Z does make it quite magical indeed ๐Ÿ™ƒ.

In regards to WONDERFUL WORLD, I love the first poster but detest the secound. "Leads being put one atop each other and blended using different layers of opacity" is the worst!! Love the colors on the pinkish poster, though.

Both 1 and 2 feature men with hair that is oranger than Iโ€™d like, but one of them looks like heโ€™s entered his โ€œJunho circa 2017โ€ phase (not mad about it) and the other looks like heโ€™s calling back to Vitamin C from the late 90s (kinda feel bad for him).

Queen of Tears loves a strong shoulder line and Iโ€™m here for it. That bottom left jacket is ๐Ÿ”ฅ

I've always wondered about what seems a preference among kdrama actors for orange hair. Of course, this reflects my own aesthetic bias, but I would think a deeper red, or even blue or purple would look a lot better. Wonder why orange became such a common color?

Because that's literally what happens when you put peroxide on dark brown/black hair? You get orange. No other steps necessary.

Thanks for this info! Obviously I have no experience with hair dying, worried as I am about retaining any hair of any color.

My preference these days is for grey hair. I would love to see a few mature actresses who are NOT playing grandmas or supernatural deities with lustrous silver locks, and that color I think some of them could attain naturally!

Hacja Arthur Dramabeans,

If, at anytime, you would like to go with any of us Beanies to a hair salon get your hair dyed red, blue or even orange, I feel confident that we would simply be honored to offer you a greater, personal depth of experience in the chemistry of hair color. There are even shades of silver we could explore. On your head.

Sincerely,

Seon-ha Maleficent Dramabeans

@attiton If I had my druthers, I probably would choose a nostalgia color from my youth, like avocado green or harvest gold, so my hair would resemble a 1970s kitchen appliance. Unfortunately, I don't think they make those dye colors anymore.

@hacja I know you're trolling me...and yet, I can't resist.

โ€œdruthersโ€ is such a great and dated (pardon me) US English word. Seon-ha, are you inclined to call @hacja ajhosshi yet?

My theory has been that it must be to match the webtoon character, but having done an incredibly superficial search and finding only dark-haired and blonde characters, Iโ€™m thinking Seon-ha has the only reasonable explanation.
