From kings to guardians, today is all about the struggles of work in an official capacity, though through slightly different lenses. "Grand Prince" starring Yoon Si-yoon, Jin Se-yun and Joo Sang-wook has revealed its first videos and photos, while in modern times we have goodies from Noh Hee-kyeong's latest, slice-of-police-life drama "Live". As usual, more drama news follows...More
Despite there being next to nothing in terms of information, this announcement was dropped by a handful of news portals today, and it's a highly exciting one. A representative from cable channel OCN has stated that PD Kim Seong-soo ("Save Me", "Genome Hazard") is preparing a new drama...More

OCN is coming out with a sports drama based on the most popular winter sport, short track.
"Short" is a youthful drama about Kang Ho-young (Kang Tae-oh), a hidden talent in the world of short track, Park Eun-ho (Yeo Hoe-hyun), the only son of a prestigious sports family, and Yoo Ji-na (Kim Doyeon) who is loved by both of them...More
Group cohabitation is definitely one of the latest Korean drama trends, and this week I dive into the babysitting shenanigans of "Laughter in Waikiki". After taking a break from following it, I also take one last look at "Drama Stage - The Woman Who Makes the Last Meal", which has aired today. Be it guest houses, prisons, androids or remakes, it looks like the trends for this year are on a roll...More
See that, series? I can use random foreign titles too! Sass on my part aside, "Children of a Lesser God" has released its second short character teaser featuring Kim Ok-bin's Kim Dan. The title of this piece is more than a swing at the drama's name, as we finally get to see the infamous bell, which may be a material one...More
Actress Choi Hee-seo is starring in the new OCN drama "Mistress", which is a remake of the English BBC drama. American ABC also created its own remake in 2013...More
Ji Soo posted pictures on his Instagram in which he's wearing a three-piece suit...More
We finally have some poster goodies from "Children of a Lesser God", and while they're nothing special or new for the channel, the information that comes with them is more interesting than the visuals. We get a little more on our heroine's gift/curse and one bold statement from the production, which has me wondering what we're in for with the drama...More
I'm not one to cover or follow fashion, but I've been so curious about this pairing, and these are some pretty gorgeous shots. OCN has shared bits of this upcoming Vogue feature for its leading duo of "Children of a Lesser God", as well as behind the scenes cuts. "Photo chemistry" can be misleading, but boy, do I wish it won't be in this case...More
We finally get a first proper look at the heroine of "Children of a Lesser God", Kim Dan, through a new teaser and stills. After a long wait for the cryptic "sees what should not be seen" to become clearer, the video reveals what Dan's actual superpower is. My own question would be, does it come with a very creepy notification system...More
Or at least I think that's what our hero is doing, and with Kang Ji-hwan's experience in sneaky, bold and often comedic characters getting into trouble, I assume we're in for a blast. The latest filming stills released by OCN for "Children of a Lesser God" also give us a better look at our heroine on the job and a sneak peek of our intimidating prosecutor...More
2018 has entered with a bang and that includes some big celebrity names returning to Dramaland for ambitious projects. We have a few such news bits this week that you can read more about and I also take a look at fresh material for "Children of a Lesser God". Between casting news, trailers and a hefty dose of stills, we have another busy week in Dramaland...More
I see your finger-heart and raise you a finger-gun, because the "Mystery Queen Season 2" One True Work-Pairing is here to make me wish I can just jump to February. KBS has released stills of Kwon Sang-woo and Choi Kang-hee during the filming of the drama's first teaser, and the finger-gun shots are a lovely extra...More
In what is a bit of a jarring tonal and stylistic shift from the first three teasers of the series and their dark fairytale appeal, "Children of a Lesser God" decides to introduce its male lead in a more standard, sleek manner. Kang Ji-hwan's detective is here to dazzle us with his IQ of 167, which is somehow not enough to stop a Dramaland cop from being careless at a crime scene...More
Thursday casting news bites are plentiful, raining down from drama gods and promising good things. Dramaland always does that, promises good things on which it sometimes delivers. However, today's casting is looking quite juicy, and I'm happy to see these actors getting work...More

Take a big step into a hopefully lovely 2018 to view all the upcoming drama goodies we can enjoy for yet another year. Dramaland has gone on a promotional spree after the slow holiday season and we have a lot of new teasers for several series coming up. As I look to future dramas for my picks, I am ever so slightly tempted to watch "Misty" on my free time...More
OCN has been so big on crime dramas, that Death himself gets one this time around. Granted, the titular hero of "Black" is only one Reaper out of many, but the series is right up his alley anyway. The series mixes fantasy, crime and romance, although that sadly proves too much by the end of things. Where does "Black" succeed and where could things have gone better? It depends on what you are looking for, but here is my take on it...More
Look at that casting goodness. Beloved actors as far as the eye can see. Sure, we're drowning in men and mostly everyone is wearing black and looking preemptively tired, but creating a work from scratch is no picnic. Jokes aside, the cast for "Children of a Lesser God" looks impressive and judging by the serious atmosphere in these images, the story looks grim...More
OCN is remaking ABC's "Mistresses" and the why all over my face is truly a breathtaking sight. I have not watched the original UK series or the US remake, but one look at its description and genre makes me wonder how it fits into the OCN pool in general. A soap mystery drama about women in sordid and illicit affairs does sound right up Dramaland alley, on the other hand. Just not OCN...More
A fresh, exclusive Sedaily article reporting news of "Voice 2" states the return of Lee Ha-na, but not Jang Hyuk and it made me consider something; when is a sequel necessary, when is a spin-off wiser, and when should a work be left as is? This is something we rarely had to consider before when it came to Korean drama, and the implications of it are worth thinking about and discussing now...More
I'm still not sure what to make of the series and some latest information along with these teasers make me wonder how much of a fantasy element there will be in "Children of a Lesser God". These are definitely not the videos I expected from another run of the mill crime show with a supernatural twist, but I'm intrigued and this means that they work...More
BBC hit "Life on Mars" to be re-made, continuing the trend of foreign remakes in dramaland...More
Woo Do-hwan made strong impression on audiences with characters with scars from the past.

It's been a great year for dramas and we at HanCinema have gotten to enjoy many of them. We watch, review, analyze, follow news, read your reactions, and enjoy the fruits of dramaland. During all the time we spend in dramaland, a few 2017 dramas have spoken to each of us personally. William, our resident film and drama critic; Orion, our drama reviewer, news hoarder, and daily rambler; and me, Lisa, your friendly managing editor, have all gathered to share our favorite dramas of the year. Let's check out which dramas we each picked as our top two and then we'd love to hear about yours...More
With the year nearly at its end, new drama concepts and trends are emerging for 2018. Artificial intelligence and science-fiction may just be getting their chance beyond romancing robots and "Memories of the Alhambra" certainly sounds interesting on paper. We are also one week away from the premiere of "A Korean Odyssey", so we get to enjoy a barrage of promotional goodies...More
Now this is more of an Ori-work and the casting makes me happy beyond words. Previously teased main duo for OCN's latest crime thriller have now confirmed their appearances and "Children of a Lesser God" will be with us on February 2018.

Santa Claus is not the only one coming to town this December, as our bad guys are arriving to clean it of the filth even they are too good for.

Prosecutor Woo Je-moon (Park Joong-hoon) is a man who cares about results more than he does about the legality of the means. He and a team of criminals selected as a new form of law enforcers take on a powerful cartel...More

"Mad Dog" left behind an actor named Woo Do-hwan who had a successful KBS debut.
The KBS 2TV drama "Mad Dog" ended with Yoo Ji-tae as Choi Kang-woo and Woo Do-hwan as Kim Min-joon putting Choi Won-yeong as Joo Hyeon-gi and Hong Soo-hyun as Cha Hong-joo to justice. Kang-woo and Min-joon both lost their families in a plane crash, but by solving the secrets behind the accident, they became close like family...More

We have more stills of precious manly goodness this week and a little bit more information on the premise of the series. Writer Han Jeong-hoon has mentioned that a key difference between the first series and "Bad Guys : Vile City" is that, while the former was about bad guys trying to reduce their sentence, the new series is about them uniting against a specific organization...More

It is a case of live fast and probably die faster for our bad boys of justice. The latest posters for "Bad Guys : Vile City" are visually pleasing and packed with character.

These are the questions I ask myself on a daily basis when it comes to dramas...More

Dramaland's love for all manner of plots involving law enforcement is quite obvious, but boy do we have a lot of goodies about detectives, real and fake, this week. Crime and punishment is very manly lately and today I take a look at some upcoming naughty boys once more. We also have the releases of first teasers for many new dramas. Things are looking quite promising for the upcoming months...More
"Voice 2" will continue the exploration of the "Golden Time" for emergency calls, the short window with the highest chance of victim recovery. Last season the heroine used her amazing hearing and skills in voice analysis to save callers. No news on whether or not the original cast will return, but it sure would be nice if they did...More
Why hello there Kang Ji-hwan. It feels like ages since your last drama "Monstar - 2016"! This time he's jumping into a ghost drama, a popular drama format in the past few years. Not a lot of information is available yet, but the casting with Kang and Kim Ok-bin is promising...More

Three teasers and three very different men with very different strengths are show through these trailers. One is a brilliant man with nothing but his intelligence; one is not quite the purest detective on the block; the third is a wild card of a man. The characterizations are intriguing and are making this look as sleek as the first while retaining its own flavor...More
Added episodes 7 and 8 captures for the Korean drama "Black"...More

The big ol' drama machine never stops spinning and this is true throughout what has been an eventful and no doubt emotionally charged week for many. Today I look at the new goodies from "Untouchable" and "Prison Playbook" as we go into the season of manly bonding. Silly Ori gets a bit serious this week, as I close with what I feel is important for us all to remember...More
CNBLUE's Lee Jong-hyun and Kim So-eun are two people who bear an unbreakable curse in "That Man Oh Soo". As this is a rom-com, I assume the curse will come between whatever romance may blossom, which makes this a fun premise indeed. Bring it on!...More
Added episodes 5 and 6 captures for the Korean drama "Black"...More
The idea of cloning is a highly controversial one and for good reason. South Korea has had its own advancement in and moral debates over it, making the lack of the topic's presence in drama fiction a surprising one. "Duel" does not really focus on the existential and other implications of human cloning, but it aims to be an action thriller experience with a related twist...More
Yunho definitely has zero idea what he's getting into with the split personality Kyung Soo-jin in "Melo Holic". Between innocent woman and sexy seductress, he's never sure what he's gonna get - neither are we...More

It seems that I always find my way back to crime-related drama content even when I am not actively looking for it and this time around I take a look at "Prison Playbook", which I had not given much attention to before. I also bring you deadly stills and teasers from "Bad Guys Season 2". May the upcoming imaginary crime pay off...More
Skinship is tough for Yunho in "Melo Holic" because of his superpowers. Yup, that's right. Our TVXQ star is playing a man with the ability to read minds, which is a blessing and a curse...More
One guy, Ji Soo, is jailed and holding himself up in a plank with only his arms while the other (Joo Jin-mo) is nasty slicing a fish with dead guys in his living room. I'm pretty sure these are the bad guys we're looking for in "Bad Guys Season 2". I wonder who they'll catch with their insider knowledge...More
These posters for "Melo Holic" showcase Kyung Soo-jin's character who has two very different personalities, one sweet and one naughty as well as Yunho's reactions to both personalities. Mix in his ability to read thoughts and this should be one interesting ride...More
"Bad Guys Season 2" likes to drop some intense promo material from the visciously impactful and short teaser to the hard, action-packed stills of the bad guys who will be making their way to the small screen in December...More
Age is just a number when it comes to a good chemistry...More
In the second teaser for "Melo Holic", Yunho's character has faith that Kyung Soo-jin's is a good person, but she is doubtful. Of course, there is that beautiful, teasing, almost-kiss it ends with as well......More

After the torrential downpour of dramas on our poor time-deprived souls last week, it is time to look forward in anticipation of new shows and new adventures. This week brings us a lot of casting news as well as some goodies from "Bad Guys Season 2" and the main cast of "Doubtful Victory", a drama with a fun hidden identity premise...More
These teasers for "Bad Guys Season 2" are making it out to be more of a Hollywood blockbuster than a drama, but that's just fine with me. We're still only getting glimpses of our bad guys. There is time yet, as the drama doesn't air until December...More
Get ready for "Black", which is coming tomorrow. In this trailer we see the change in Song Seung-heon's character from silly cop to confused, but very manly, reaper...More

Song Seung-heon's smile comforts all of us who are going to work after a long holiday.
In his selfie, Song Seung-heon is smiling with his finger pressed on his temple. Fans love the fact that he's wearing a simple T-shirt...More
Kim Dong-jun and Lee El are really getting some air time in the promotions for "Black", which stirs up anticipation for the chaebol and the doctor that the two are playing. Compared to Song Seung-heon's reaper and Go Ara's clairvoyant, these two seem more grounded in the natural. But one never knows with a premise such as "Black"'s or with a channel like OCN...More
Chuseok is always a slow news season, but Dramaland never remains quiet for long. The past week has been packed with news despite the holidays and the week ahead marks the premiere of many dramas. Today I talk about my personal picks and provide you with goodies from the fine selection of said dramas, which cover all manner of taste...More
Most human beings do not find the idea of death all that attractive, but if Korean drama is good at something, that would be persistent romanticizing of anything and everything. "Black" may be another handsome Reaper, but do not let that fool you. The series looks like a potentially solid mystery ride.
A detective possessed by a Reaper (Song Seung-heon) and a woman who can predict death (Go Ara) in the form of shadows team up and try to save lives through their unique skills. The two fight against the rules of life and death as well as the consequences of their actions...More

"Black" is putting out more sleek teasers in preparation for its October 14 release. Enjoy...More
Short as it is, the new teaser for OCN's "Melo Holic" looks adorable already. Yunho plays a mind-reading man and Kyung Soo-jin plays a woman with two personalities. The thoughts in her head are sure to throw him for a loop...More
I loved the first season of "Bad Guys" and I have to admit that seeing Yang Ik-june in the lineup for "Bad Guys Season 2" hooked my attention and amped up my excitement for this second season. This trailer is short and sweet, showing action, roaring bad guys, and promising more...More
Holy smokes, folks! This is one intense teaser and really has me hyped to watch the drama. In it we witness the horror that Go Ara's character lives with as she sees the shadows of death. I really can't blame the woman for keeping sunglasses on at all times. But, there is hope when she meets the cop-turned-reaper who encourages her to do something about what she sees. She shortens her bangs and takes off her glasses. And......More
I adored "Bad Guys" and I'm stoked to see "Bad Guys Season 2" is rolling around in December. We only have a few grizzly stills of our bad boys and their determined faces, but if OCN and the legacy of the first series is anything to go by, we're going to be in for one heck of a ride...More
Lee El's and Kim Dong-jun's character posters for "Black" look just as wonderful as I'd expect based on OCN's polished style and the trend of the gorgeous promotional materials already dropped. Lee El looks like quite a passionate doctor with many worries while Kim Dong-jun has that young chaebol/rich kid air with a touch of sadness...More
Go Ara's character can see the shadows of people's deaths in "Black". To prevent those spectors from overwhelming her she wears sunglasses nearly all the time. In the stills we see how much her gift (or her curse) weighs on her. It's a heavy burden for her and I want to see how she weighs in against other visionaries like Gong Hyo-jin and Park Bo-young...More
Added final episodes 15 and 16 captures for the Korean drama "Save Me"...More
Jo Jae-yoon starred in the OCN drama "Save Me", which ended today. "I can't believe it's over", he said. "I did my best, but I don't think I did well enough. I won't be able to forget it and I thank everyone who made this possible...More
Go Ara starts sees shadows of death in "Black" and one shadow follows the man who eventually becomes the reaper. While dark and, dare I say, black as heck, the trailer has a few traces of humor that will most certainly be needed in such an intense drama. At least it seems as though it will be intense. We'll see...More
Lee El who has a reputation for her strong character, was featured in the October issue of ELLE. She stars in the OCN drama "Black" as a beautiful doctor...More
We finally have a hauntingly beautiful poster with both leads on it for "Black"! Song Seung-heon and Go Ara stand in front of a blur of people (or spectors?) looking like the world weighs on their shoulders. More than that cool poster, however, would you check out the picture of Song Seung-heon trying to hide in a refrigerator? I'm guessing this is from the first meeting of the reaper and the woman who foresees death...More

Woo Do-hwan posted a picture of himself on Instargram with a captain that reads, "Watch out for the rain...More
After last week's round up of news for romantic series, I need a little something to balance things off. Today I bring you revenge and death, although sadly not combined. "Avengers' Social Club" drops some great teasers hinting at family drama. "While You Were Sleeping - 2017" and "Black" may share the element of predicting death, but the clear differences in focused genre cover different tastes. All in all, we have a promising upcoming drama season...More
I am wickedly torn about my feelings for "Black". With the dark mood, interesting premise, and excellently executed teasers, I'm drawn towards dedicating hours of my life to this show. But at the same time, Song Seun-heon doesn't inspire confidence. He does tend to take some great roles, but has also had a few sketchy ones...More
"Black" certainly doesn't lack for ambience. Everything about these posters screams "mystery" and "thriller" from the shadows across the actors' faces to the gritty quality of the images. The show also has a confirmed start date, October 14, and an updated air time, 10:20 PM KST. So buckle up because OCN is planning another gripping drama. I don't have too much faith in Song Seung-heon, but I hope he surprises me...More

Today I am feeling romantic in the traditional and contemporary sense, so I bring you a little journey to the past through new goodies on "Girls' Generation 1979". Nostalgia is sweet, but I also have goodies from three different upcoming romantic series, for those more into the lovey-dovey relationship type of sweetness. There are some exciting new promos from other dramas as well, so take a look at what I have gathered...More
"Black" released teasers that are just as dark as its premise. In the first, Song Seung-heon is shrouded in darkness, black clouds of souls, hints of terrifying faces, and a whisper of his deadly job. The second shows Go Ara, the seer of people's dark shadows. Just how will these two work together...More

Time is cruel and in Dramaland it is also a big troll, which brings us to the theme of today's dramas. "Someone Noticeable" takes a look at someone's past for the sake of someone's future and "Live Up to Your Name" is the latest in line of time travel dramas. I have more news, as usual, including the return of Lee Bo-young in a drama I will be keeping my eye on...More
South Korea was shaken quite badly by last year's political scandal and the absurd nature of its cult element has been widely discussed. It is only a matter of time before Dramaland takes a bigger dive into the dark side of religion after occasionally dipping its toes in it and "Save Me" might take that plunge.
Four young men struggling to get by in their challenging lives reunite with an old acquaintance who asks for their help. The woman and her family are being held captive by a religious cult. The four young men band together in order to save her and expose the cult's true face...More

tvN dramas were at the top when it came to quality and issue last year. They did better than most groundwave dramas and entertainment shows even parodied them.

Clones are the latest trend in Dramaland and like any trend in this industry, this horse will be beaten long past its expiration. For now, the still fresh topic gets its first drama with "Duel". Whether the clones in what looks like any other crime and suspense drama will be more than a gimmick remains to be seen.
Jang Deuk-cheon (Jung Jae-young) is a detective with an ill daughter. One day he becomes entagled with two clones, one innocent and one evil, and his little girl is kidnapped. The detective begins a chase against great odds to solve the mystery of his situation and find his child before it is too late...More

Jin-wook (played by Sung Hoon) is a playboy and a bit of a jerk. The first we see of the guy, he takes over a party and then walks back his sexiness with a rather ridiculous sounding excuse. As mean and selfish as Jin-wook seems at first glance, we do find out by the end that the excuse is actually evidence of Jin-wook's secret good side. Which is fortunate, since up until that point, we frequently see Jin-wook get in trouble for stuff that's not actually his fault, yet never does he seem all that sympathetic...More

Dramaland has been meticulously churning out time travel and crime dramas lately so "Tunnel - Drama" is nothing revolutionary. At the same time, the idea of a detective from the past dealing with modern society after being time-thrown into it might just give this one a little fresh edge.

Many top stars have been changing to the cable lanes in 2017. Just a few years ago, it wasn't a common thing as every single step was made into an issue. Celebrities used to follow star writers onto cable but now they are looking just at the masterpiece itself. Successful dramas like the tvN "Goblin" and "Answer Me 1988" have accelerated the potential of cable dramas. tvN drama "Tomorrow With You" is Shin Min-ah's first cable drama. She is popular for her roles in "My Girlfriend is a Gumiho" and "Arang and the Magistrate", but her recent drama "Oh My Venus" wasn't too successful although she dressed up as an overweight person. This time she is a whacky character and her co-star Lee Je-hoon also chose to come back with tvN after last year's signal...More

Dramaland geniuses are rarely useful ones, but OCN likes to make its characters work for their special snowflake award. The latest ability is a keen sense of hearing which will crack a case and catch a murderer. The task of "Voice" now is to rise above gimmicks and create a suspenseful story with a twist that matters.
Two people whose lives have been touched by a serial killer work together in order to catch him. One is a tough and relentless former detective skilled in action, the other is an intelligent officer who works at an emergency call center and has a heightened sense of hearing...More
