So, with the deadly cold I barely survived last week, some news has begun backing up here. So here’s a bunch of interesting stuff in easy bite-sized pieces. Aww…I missed you guys almost as much as I missed the ability to breathe through my nose.
Mi-rae’s cast is confirmed and now, so is my interest!
Yay! Lee Dong-gun has officially signed onto a project! It’s like a weight off my shoulders like I don’t need to worry about him anymore. And the fact that the heroine is going to be played by Yoon Eun Hye? I’m fairly certain this coupling is going to work. And on top of that, we have a third cast member doing the official sign-on. CNBlue frontman, Jung Yong-hwa is coming back to dramas for the first time since Heartstrings. He was originally signed onto the upcoming Heirs, but backed out. And you know what? I’m glad. That show is jam-packed with stars, he wouldn’t have had a chance to stand out there. Since Mi-Rae’s Choice has a smaller cast, while it might not be as ‘must-watch’ as Heirs, this seems like a better fit.
New Family Drama, Dead Ahead.
Now that the ratings king, You’re the Best, has ended, it’s time for a new family drama! I do love me a family drama, but there are so few that I’ll actually watch. I probably won’t watch Lee Soon-shin as I heard it got really bad, and I’m still feeling the sting from Dandelion Family (Hrm….this show made me very cranky), so I’m in the market for a new one. Is King’s Family it? The story of a big family with the heroine the middle daughter who gets off the safe path and decides to quit her job and become a writer? Reminds me a bit of Assorted Gems which I love. However, the actress playing the heroine? Lee Yoon-ji, who starred in Dandelion Family (hrrmmm…). One of the sisters in this drama also played the sister in Gloria, which I also love, but the tone of the trailer seems slapstick, which I hate.
So I guess I’ll just have to keep my eye on it, see which way it lays before I make a decision.
The team behind my favorite Kdrama, Pasta, is getting the band back together. Okay, so not the whole band, just the producer and writer, not the actors, but a girl can dream can’t she? I know nothing about this show except it’s called Miss Korea and is sceduled to hit the airwaves in December after Medical Top Team. But I’m looking forward for more information to come out–and you know when I find it? You’ll be the first to know. Cast aside, I really liked the writing and the look of Pasta, so I’m hoping they have the skills to be able to create another great show.
