As the premiere date of upcoming jtbc drama D-Day is approaching, two of the lead cast, Kim Young-kwang and Jung So-min cosy up for the September issue of Ceci Korea’s magazine. The drama will premiere in September after Last ends. Being the first disaster drama in Korea, it is promoted as a blockbuster for the second-half of 2015 with high production budget (with the amount of CG required). In the pictorial below, they sure look stunning together clad in various clothing for the different stylistic shots. Check it out!
When it rains, it pours. This week seems like a busy week for drama fans and production teams as the promotion for the upcoming dramas is kicked up a notch, making the wait for them even more difficult. Although we’re still in the month of August, the September and October dramas are hard at work, gearing up for their respective premieres, and we get to have our first look(s) into these dramas: She Was Pretty, The God of Merchant: Gaekju 2015, and Six Flying Dragons.
Daniel Henney has been focusing on movies for the past few years, with the most recent one being 2014’s Big Hero 6, where he was the voice actor for Tadashi Hamada in the Disney animated American film. I’ve watched all the 3 kdramas he had starred in, namely Fugitive Plan B, Spring Waltz and My Name Is Kim Sam-soon (save for 2005 MBC drama Hello Franceska in which he was a guest). I miss seeing him on the Korean networks, so I definitely hope he makes his comeback to kdramaland where he first started out 🙂
He is featured on September’s issue of Arena Homme Plus and its sister magazine Mpremium. Amidst the car background for the Red Bull Air Race in Chiba, Japan, the actor and model wears a Hamilton watch in each of the pictures. I must say, he’s looking good 😀
First we have a bearded Hong Joo-won, and now we get an inked Seo Kang-joon for the September issue of Allure Korea! He is too pretty to have the ‘tough man’ concept but I can’t complain much, because it means more chance to stare at this flower boy ^^ His fans should be celebrating with the news of him starring in the drama adaptation of Cheese in the Trap, and looks like he won’t be resting for too long after Hwajung wraps up.
Just like what I thought, MBC’s up and coming weekend offering, My Daughter, Geum Sa-wol, lives up to its writer’s credential: there are warring families, old grudges, mistaken identities, swapped babies, inferiority complexes, family secrets, and last but not least, friendship and rivalry. Strangely enough, the new work of writer Kim Sun-ok feels like a potentially good family drama, although the time slot is well known for its tendency to go all the way down the makjang route. Well, I am hoping that the show will surprise me, and surpass the sensational hit last year, Jang Bo-ri is Here!, which made it possible for its resident evil second lead Lee Yoo-ri to bring home the Daesang in the station’s drama awards.
