Aside from Cha Seung-won turning into a talent show judge, we have character descriptions for many a new face from "Hwayugi". Yoon Dae-sik (Jang Gwang) is a top conglomerate CEO, but his wealth does not change the fact that he is a loyal subordinate of Son Oh-gong (Lee Seung-gi) who enjoys taking care of his boss by doing household chores for him. Sung Ji-roo plays Master Soo Bo-ri, a teacher of martial arts to Oh-gong and a friend to the Bull Demon King...More
Actor Ha Joon ("The Outlaws", "Six Flying Dragons") has joined Jo Yeo-jung in this one-shot about a woman who cooks the last meals for death row inmates and a man who is unclear on his circumstances as one. The actor will be playing the inmate, whose mental illness causes a lapse of memory about his current situation...More
Director Kim Jin-won-I has this fantastic talent for creating dramatic tension in flashbacks where, logically, there should not be any dramatic tension. We know what happened in the accident and that appearances to the contrary, it did not kill either Kang-doo or Moon-soo. Of course, they know that too. They can probably tell when they're dreaming, too. That doesn't make the trauma of those memories any less real - especially not the feeling that they caused the tragedy, somehow...More
Chi-won has this habit of quickly getting annoyed with people and promptly ending conversations before they've even really started. Narrative-wise this habit of frustrating, since it prevents Chi-won from getting involved with any kind of actual plot. But at the same time it's actually fairly refreshingly comical to watch a hero be completely immune to the villain's various schemes because the villain is such an obvious dork that listening to them at all is obviously a total waste of time...More
The much dreaded ending of another Choi Ran-I work has come and if I can give "Black" credit for something, that would be persistence in tackling whatever it does choose to tackle until the end. We get more answers than expected in the final episode and some are highly satisfying. Others are confusing and remain as plot holes. Sadly, the ending itself undoes a lot of the good in "Black"...More
At long last, we get our first peek into the Korean remake for a beloved Japanese drama and it's amazing how simply looking at a solid actress can get one's excitement going. Lee Bo-young ("Whisper", "God's Gift - 14 Days") is pictured as the seemingly cool and collected temp school teacher, Nam Soo-jin. Despite her cold appearance, the heroine connects with a student name Hye-na...More
Kim Hyun-joo ("Fantastic", "I Have a Lover") and Kim Kang-woo ("Circle", "Goodbye Mr. Black") are considering weekend drama "My Husband Oh Jak-doo", which has also been courting Han Sunhwa ("Boy and Girl From the 20th Century", "School 2017") as its lead recently. This is the kind of casting which makes a drama fan's heart flutter, although no confirmation means that we don't get to be happy yet...More
