The original flavor flower boy, though I should perhaps call him flower man now that he’s completed his military service, has been released from MS for all of less than two weeks, and he’s probably done more than I do in half a year. Jo In Sung‘s first post-MS CF is already out, and he’s going James Bond suave to hawk SK-telecom’s W mobile phone. Rumor have been flying on which project Jo In Sung will pick for his comeback role, and I’ve heard that he’s leaning heavily towards doing a movie, which is unsurprising since he’s done only movies for the last few years prior to his enlistment.

This is it, folks. I’m officially sold. Do you accept credit cards, oh production of Material Queen? The upcoming TW-drama held a press conference this week with Lynn Xiong and Daniel Chan (Vanness Wu couldn’t make it due to scheduling conflicts) as the promotional train continues. While the more I watch the first trailer the more I love the trailer (still iffy about the drama itself), I thought the second teaser trailer was pretty cool as well, it’s this third preview that has me signing up for the MQ ship come June. I’m serious, I love this video!
The video below contains BTS footage of the filming, an interview with costume designer Patricia Field, and a third teaser at the end. If anyone is curious about MQ, please take a look, because I was pretty impressed with the painstaking detail that went into creating this drama. While Patricia Field’s designs are hit or miss with me, the genius of her creativity is that her hits are stratospheric and her misses so hideous it gives one nightmares. I adore her creed – dressing is about expressing one’s individual identity, not about brand or price. Continue reading
It’s been a dismal showing for Chinese movies (Mainland China, Hong Kong, and Taiwan) at the Cannes Film Festival this year. The only movie to be invited was director Peter Chan‘s scientific martial arts film Wuxia (武俠), starring Donnie Yen, Takashi Kaneshiro, and Tang Wei. Wuxia had a midnight showing at Cannes two days ago, and all the stars of the movie were out to promote the film. Continue reading
SBS has confirmed that Kim Sun Ah will be co-starring with the soon-to-be-discharged Lee Dong Wook in the upcoming weekend drama Scent of a Woman, which will follow New Tales of the Gisaeng to air in mid-July.
Coincidentally, this will be both actors return to the drama screens in two years, since Lee Dong Wook has been in the military for that period of time, and Kim Sun Ah has recently completing filming on a movie and nothing else since finishing City Hall in mid-2009 Continue reading
While I love Ha Ji Won and think she is literally a goddess come to life for her amazing breadth of acting roles in her career, I don’t always love her projects, nor automatically watch anything she stars in. This baby, however, I’m totally onboard for.
The sure-to-be-a-blockbuster Summer K-movie Sector 7, starring Ha Ji Won, Ahn Seung Ki (also known as “Korea’s National Actor”), and Oh Ji Ho, released it’s official posters and trailer this week. This movie is also going to be Korea’s first homemade 3D offering, and I must say the visuals look slick and the tension thick. Continue reading
Wah? WAHHHH? I almost had to look ten times in a row to make sure I wasn’t seeing some sort of hallucination, but indeed, it was real. MBC released the written preview for episode 5 of Best Love already. I just know I am going to have to drink upwards of 5 energy drinks next Wed-Thurs just to get through recapping the final 2 episodes of 49 Days, and what looks to be even more awestruck plot developments to come in Best Love.
