[Orion's Drama News] Social Battles and Doppelgangers

2018/01/27 | Permalink

An abundance of casting news have come to make things interesting for another week and we have a lot of new media from upcoming and new dramas. Today I revisit "Drama Stage - Fighter Choi Kang-soon" and I take a first look at the premise of "Switch - Change The World". I do love this time when new titles and information on previously teased ones pop up. It makes me feel coddled.

Harsh Realities

It has been a while since I have checked in on "Drama Stage - Fighter Choi Kang-soon" and the drama's premiere has sneaked up on me. The series premiering today has released a teaser and a highlight reel, along with one impactful and impressive poster. I remember wondering what type of fighting the series would talk about, and it looks like it is the kind most women are familiar with; sexism and social injustice. This sounds like a work I would love to see, so I hope that the Drama Stage shows will be subtitled one day.

Double (Legal) Trouble

"Operation King" has become "Switch - Change The World" and Jang Keun-suk has confirmed his appearance along with Han Ye-ri. The project is about two physically identical men, a conman and an investigator, and the blending of legal and illegal matters. The premise does not sound very new on paper, as conflicting pairs are a common concept. Dramas also love breaking the law in every shape and form, so I will need a bit more on this to gauge its potential. The series has also cast Jung Woong-in, so there is another plus right there.

Upcoming Drama Goodies

We got plenty of casting news this week, starting with the leading trio of "Miracle That We Met" being confirmed. Jung Hae-in has joined "Pretty Sister Who Buys Me Food" and the drama has also added to its supporting cast. Ryu Deok-hwan and Lee Elijah round up "Miss Hammurabi", and according to one report, Hong Seo-young has joined "Children of a Lesser God", which has new stills and posters out. Speaking of posters, "Queen of Mystery 2" has new teaser posters and new stills. "Misty" premieres on Friday, but we get a 3-minute highlight reel as a video preview.

Followed Dramas

"Mother - Drama" has started off quite strongly, and while "A Korean Odyssey" (also known as "Hwayugi") is great fun, it is starting to wear my patience thin with its non-existent main story. I still need to get through "Argon" and "Prison Playbook" soon, but for now I prepare myself to tackle "Misty". You can read my preview piece on it today.
