Get your baggy jeans and hoop earrings ready, because "The Best Hit" is here to bring back everything we find embarrassing and sometimes secretly still love from the 90s. Today I take a look at this quirky upcoming title before sharing the usual collection of weekly news. I have also started two of my three new dramas for this exciting season!
Right in the Childhood
Early drama concepts change a lot, but the result is sometimes very surprising. Until the first promotional material for "The Best Hit" appeared, I had dismissed it as just a typical youth drama. Enter time-traveling 90s idol and I am as confused as I am entertained. I am still not sure what to make of it and all I know is that there is also a romantic angle here, but I am intrigued enough. I am also not sure what the tornadoes in the posters mean, but they fit the oddity that is this show so far quite well.
Upcoming Drama Goodies
We have photos and a video from the script reading for "Bride of the Water God 2017" and new posters for "Lovers in Bloom". The second trailer is out for "Queen for 7 Days" while "Woman of Dignity" is still dark in its third teaser. Meanwhile, there is more information out on Park Hae-jin's "Four Men". In casting news, Kim Min-joon has a special appearance in "My Sassy Girl - Drama" while Choi Jin-hyuk is being courted for "Hospital Ship". Kim Ok-bin is also courted for "Falsify" while rookie actress Oh Ah-yeon has already been cast for it.
I march forward into my new dramas with leftover ending disappointment from "Tunnel - Drama" and a sigh of relief for the end of "Whisper". So far I am enjoying "Circle" and "Lookout" a lot. You can read my "Duel" preview here. Can I get three for three this time? I am working on my backlog as usual, but new dramadventures are exciting.
