Spring is fun, but summer is winking at us and throwing popular pairings at our faces. We are paying attention, summer. Join me as I give you some pretty exciting casting news, more upcoming drama goodies and ramblings. Also, Jasper Cho! No, I cannot actually give him to you, but you could have your question answered by him in our upcoming exclusive interview!
Summer Casting in Full Swing
Casting directors are having a field day again and we get to join them! We have some very popular drama pairings coming this summer, starting with Kim Rae-won and Park Shin-hye in "Doctors". Then "W" and "Uncontrollably Fond" will be competing for ratings as Lee Jong-suk, Han Hyo-joo, Kim Woo-bin and Bae Suzy will be dividing audiences. Thankfully for us foreign fans, we can watch everything without having to choose while they air.
The Rapid Approach of "Entertainers"
This is a drama which interests me as much as it worries me. The production will no doubt be very rushed and we still have no idea if Hyeri will be ok with such a schedule. Even so, Ji Sung is looking very nice backstage and we got some script reading stills and a fun little teaser video as well. I am happy to see the lady looks ready to roll. Promotional material will hit us hard and fast in the next two weeks.
Jasper Cho Event and Interview
Lisa has done it again, folks! HanCinema will be interviewing Jasper Cho (Cho Tae-gwan)! Most of you will know him as Dr. Daniel from "Descendants of the Sun". Because we know how much you folks like him and since his agency has graciously accepted, we will be holding a little event before the interview. Visit Lisa's introduction and ask Jasper your questions! Two of them will be selected for him to answer.
Upcoming Drama Goodies
We have a "Master - God of Noodles" week as the series has released two teasers in a dark comic book style. The first one focuses on Chun Jung-myung's character and the second one on Cho Jae-hyun's. A teaser poster is also out. Lee Joon-gi gives us a charming glimpse into his "Scarlet Heart: Ryeo" character and the popular star news do not end there. Lee Soo-hyuk might be up for "Lucky Romance", Joo Won will take on "My Sassy Girl - Drama" and Park Hae-jin is confirmed for "Man to Man", along with "Descendants of the Sun" writer Kim Won-seok-II.
"Descendants of the Sun" and "Please Come Back, Mister" are still moving along, but I am far more entertained by my new dramas. "Vampire Detective" and "Neighborhood Lawyer Jo Deul-ho" had a great start and I am enjoying doing episode reviews for them a lot. Visit them if you would like to chat with me about them. I also think I may be in drama-love with the latter. Please ship us.
How has your own drama-week been, folks? I am still curious about how you all like the new Monday-Tuesday series. They all seem so different.
