It’s a secret already known by most people, but if you’re being out of loop (just like me) when it comes to kdrama news these days, KBS and SBS is at it again: after pitting medical dramas against each other on the Monday-Tuesday slot, they have arranged for yet another big battle, this time with historical dramas or sageuk. Although both dramas lined for the time slot are practically fusion sageuk, it is going to be a war of genre again after Doctors and Beautiful Mind. Both Moonlight Drawn By Clouds and Moon Lovers (aka Scarlet Heart: Ryeo) boast their own strengths, and I am so eager to see how everything will turn out, not just for the sake of the ratings battle.
I am bringing back Magazine Monday with the leads from SBS’s latest medical drama Doctors, and they are none other than Kim Rae-won and Park Shin-hye who star as neurosurgeons in the show. The overall tone of the drama is light-hearted, coupled with some medical cases in the mix. Doctors has also been putting out a massive cameo parade as more episodes are released, and the special appearances include those from Im Ji-yeon, Han Hye-jin, Namgoong Min and Lee Sang-yeob. Despite the short screen-time, we get to see them show their best acting chops in solid performances. Yoon Kyun-sang also stars in Doctors as another neurosurgeon, and you can visit his feature here. Onto the pretties!🙂
Well, it sure takes a long time for me to complete the translation this time, but it’s finally here! CeCi courted Lee Je-hoon for a laid back pictorial and interview which felt more personal than ever, and of course, with less restriction and more fun! He was not promoting anything at the time of the interview, having concluded his promotion for Phantom Detective recently and taking his sweet time going through scenarios, weighing in his next project. He has made his decision to star alongside Shin Min-ah in the time-traveling romance Tomorrow With You, slated for 2017 airing date on tvn. That will be his comeback drama and his return to the Fri-Sat slot on the channel, one year after Signal. Another special thing about his appearance on CeCi this August is he is featured on the cover for Korean and Chinese edition of the magazine. Check out the interview!
After a long wait, Yoon Si-yoon’s interview for ARENA is out, at last! Too bad the magazine only shared small-sized images for the pictorial online, and I bet that there are lots of B-cuts they did not release :3 I guess we should be thankful that even with Mirror of the Witch coming to an end last week, we still get to see him every Sunday on 2 Days 1 Night. Enjoy the interview!
To the drama in short: You will be (in) my memory.
Almost two years without him gracing our screens, Yoon Si-yoon has been making multiple strides right after completing his mandatory army service: he is currently starring in jtbc’s Mirror of the Witch and joining 2 Days 1 Night as the latest addition to the fixed cast after Kim Joo-hyuk’s departure from the variety. As his fan, I can say that my weekend has been blessed with his appearance on my screen from Friday to Sunday. He donned colourful (and sometimes questionable) clothes for Grazia and the interview has been released. Enjoy!
These set of teaser movie posters have got to be one of the finest this year, because the gorgeous colours and the eye-catching details incorporated into the posters will surely catch people’s attention. The four posters are the first promo material released for the movie Gosanja: Daedongyeojido (고산자: 대동여지도), translated as Man of the Old Mountain: The Great Map of the East Land, and they are like playing a game of Finding Cha Seung-won in the posters. Once you have recovered from the visual shock, you will realize that he is there in every poster, finding his way throughout the land of 19th century Joseon.
I did not expect to have another pictorial of Lee Je-hoon after he concluded the promotion for his latest movie Phantom Detective last month, but Singles have been so generous to court him for another photo shoot, putting him on a plane to Hawaii earlier this month, on the day of Baeksang Arts Awards. Although he did not get to walk on the red carpet or appear at the event with Signal team, at least we get this pictorial…with his slightly longer hair. Me likey.
We last saw Jung Kyung-ho as a warm-hearted man in the recent One More Happy Ending, but I already miss him! He was so adorable together with his on-screen partner Jang Nara, along with the comedic parts that made me burst out laughing😄 Thankfully, GEEK Korea gave us a pictorial of the actor this June and I am so happy that we got some eye candy❤ As we await his next project, check out the black-and-white pictorial!
I just realized that June is a month full of doctors and police, which means a lot of medical and crime cases coming to us very, very soon. Most of June dramas are premiering in the second half of the month after a lot of teasing (I’m looking at you, OCN!), with some shuffling done before the pilot episode airs in this upcoming week and the week after. So, should we take a look at them?
