We’re counting down to the last few days of 2016, and after a year of entertainment Dramaland is ready to welcome 2017 with a new batch of upcoming dramas. The magazines are no exception as they are gradually rolling out pictorials of stars featured on their January issues. A lot of my favourites are gracing the zines’ pages, so I decided to put them together in this special. Since it is Christmas month, there will be 12 sets of pictures which would be a mix of December ’16 and January ’17 released pictorials. Are you ready to welcome the new year?
New romantic melodrama On The Way To The Airport premiered on KBS this Wednesday, starring Lee Sang-yoon in his return to a public broadcaster after his past two dramas on cable television and Kim Ha-neul in her comeback drama since 2012’s A Gentleman’s Dignity. I have not watched the pilot episodes yet, but it sure looks good from the pretty posters and teasers! Singles has gathered the two leads for their October issue in a pictorial titled Steady Love; they are also on the magazine’s cover!
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.
Actor Lee Sang-yoon has starred in two dramas on cable network tvN for 2 consecutive years with Liar Game and Twenty Again. Both projects have been pretty successful, especially the latter which was a hit this year. He is seen on the January 2016 issue of COSMOPOLITAN, where he mentioned in the interview that he does not want to do anything besides acting now. Check out his outfits and poses in this pictorial! Is it more Cha Hyun-suk or Ha Woo-jin? 😉
The star for this week is Professor Cha Hyun-suk in tvN drama Twenty Again, Lee Sang Yoon! The hotly airing cable drama has been receiving lots of love from both the Korean and international audience, as seen from the ratings that hit up to 6% (which is very impressive for a cable network) and online hype. Life has been really hectic, so I’ve yet to watch the drama but it’s already on my to-watch list 😀 From the positive response the show has garnered, I can’t wait to watch it already! Now let’s move on to enjoy some pretty pictorials he has had for the past few years.
That’s what I’ve been doing in these past two weeks, trying to pick up something new to fill the void in my
heart drama-watching schedule..and I think I’ve found a keeper.
