Not long after Cosmopolitan back in January, actor Lee Sang-yoon is featured on the April issue of Harper’s Bazaar! This pictorial is in anticipation of his upcoming film Insane (the literal translation of the Korean title 날 보러와요 is Come Watch Me) which will be released at the local cinemas on the 7th of next month. It is his first thriller project and from the bleak poster and trailer below, it appears dark from the outset. The movie also stars Kang Ye-won and is about a producer who sets out to find out the truth about a murder case that was made to look like a fire and the sole survivor of the incident.
Almost two years after Empress Ki, writers Jang Young-chul and Jung Kyung-soon are back with another grand project that is a 50-episode drama. Monster (previously titled Tyrant) premiered yesterday on MBC, going head-to-head with the premiere of Neighbourhood Lawyer Jo Deul-ho on KBS2 and Jackpot on SBS, and the first episode retains the same feel as the duo’s previous works: dramatic with fast-paced plot. I love what I have seen so far, and I trust for it to only get better from this point.
