[HanCinema's Drama Review] "Midnight Diner" 2015/09/26,
Korean drama is known for strong emotions and highly dramatic situations. At the same time, the topics explored are often quite limited and the approach to them quite repetitive.

"Will fans of Kim Hyun-joong please exit the room to facilitate the interviews?" The host of the press conference for upcoming MBC TV series "Naughty Kiss" had to repeat this line several times during a Q&A session.

And it became a 'hot' drama even before going into production after singer and actor Kim Hyun-joong's casting for the show was announced. Will the interest be reflected in its ratings? Below are excerpts from the press conference held at Seoul's Imperial Palace hotel on Thursday,...More

It is though the small screen that viewers have watched Park Shin-hye grow up. The little girl who first drew people's attention with her innocent expressions on the music videos of Lee Seung-hwan's "Are You in Love" and "Flower" in 2003, soon caught on the radar of famed TV directors such as Lee Jang-soo and Hwang In-roi. She did not have much acting experience nor did she undergo training, but she left a strong impression with her role as the younger version of actress Choi Ji-woo's character in SBS TV series "Stairway to Heaven" which earned her the reputation as a promising teen actress. She then took on roles with more weight in her succeeding productions but failed to fall under the pressure and rather showed steady development,...More
