Master of Noodles on KBS Secures Cast of Chun Jung Myung, Jo Jae Hyun, and Jung Yumi


So it looks like this noodle god drama really is happening, even if the storyboard sounds weird, the time slot potentially even weirder, and the production team the weirdest of all. KBS has cast upcoming Wed-Thurs Master: God of Noodles to headline Chun Jung Myung, Jo Jae Hyun, Jung Yumi and Lee Sang Yeob. But the drama is following Descendants of the Sun and I worry it has nowhere near the star power or interesting concept alone to retain the viewers.
