This week brings us casting news, and goodies from many an upcoming drama. My mystery-loving heart is particularly interested in "Children of Nobody" and the otherworldly child in need of saving at the center of it. My horror-loving heart is also disturbed by it. Fun fun fun!
Dazed and Confused
I got some nice, and some confusing casting news. Lee Junho is being courted for "Confession - Drama", while Kim Seon-ho is a go for "Laughter in Waikiki 2". Lee Won-jong and Jo Han-sun will be joining "Possessed", and "Love in Sadness" is going for quite the line-up. It's all good so far, but I'm more torn over the casting news for "The Light in Your Eyes". Can the gaps in skill, talent and gravitas be filled? I hope they make it work.
Beware the Creepy Children
Upcoming mystery thriller "Children of Nobody" takes a different turn than I originally expected, and heads straight for my Ori-heart. The series has released stills of leads Kim Sun-ah and Lee Yi-kyung, but it's the first eerie teaser that really piqued my interest past writer Do Hyeon-jeong of "The Village: Achiara's Secret". The second teaser introducing a mysterious child just sealed the deal for me, and I am itching for the next update.
Upcoming Drama Goodies
Song Hye-kyo and Park Bo-gum's "Encounter" has released a teaser collection, followed by posters and another teaser. "Hymn of Death" brings tragic romance in its posters, and "A Pledge to God" shows motherly love, while "SKY Castle" presents its elite. "Just Dance" has its own poster and a teaser, as does "Clean with Passion for Now ". "Kingdom" drops stylish stills and a first teaser as well, while "Priest" shows off its bromance. Get ready for murder and intrigue in "The Last Empress", or go for sweet revenge with "My Strange Hero".
I never knew counting a character's deaths would be this fun, but "Feel Good To Die" and its supernatural office shenanigans have kept me entertained throughout its four premiere week episodes. I started doing episode reviews for it, so check it out if you're interested. What has been your recent sadistic viewer pleasure in Dramaland?
