I’m all out of sorts schedule wise, so I’m sorry for being a little late with this! Without further ado… Goodbye Siwon and Changmin! You’re off to the army after your stints in drama-land (She Was Pretty and The Scholar Who Walks at Night), and we’ll see you in a year! (Okay, more than a year, but we’ll be okay!) [link]
Yesterday was 11/11 – Pepero Day! Also known as Happy Singles’ Day and lots of sales were happening. Also known as Veteran’s Day, and also Happy Diwali. Lots of things yesterday – but most importantly I hope everyone had some Pepero! And now on to the news…
Some news for the week… Big Bang’sMADE concert is coming to a home near you! DramaFever will release a two-hour edited version of the concert in New Jersey’s Prudential Center on November 6 for premium users, and November 11 for all users. (Yep – it’s the same concert I went to!) This will be DramaFever’s first original in-house production. Get ready to re-live the concert! Or, watch it for the first time ever! [link]
Alright – it’s back to the news bits! I’m taking a temporary break from full on recapping until Neighborhood’s Hero comes around, so in the meantime I’m going to catch up on some dramas and browse the news every week!
The cast is filling out for the OCN drama Neighborhood’s Hero, starring Park Shi Hoo and Yuri. Recently, Lee Soo Hyuk (The Scholar Who Walks the Night) has joined the cast as well – as the aspiring cop who trains under Park Shi Hoo’s wings. This should be very interesting…
Park Shi Hoo – my fave man because I think he’s a talented actor had the scandal not marred his reputation – is coming back in a drama. And, it might also star Yuri from Girls’ Generation, but I care far less about that. Heh.
More casting news! Just so much coming out from Korea today. Son Ye Jin (Shark, Personal Taste) and Park Hae Il (“War of the Arrows,” a gazillion other movies but no dramas) have signed on for the historical film Princess Deokhye, a biography of the last Crown Princess of Korea.
Woooooo! I have not heard much about Signal but I’m glad that it’s still on schedule for release. The tvN drama has finally cast its main lead: Secret Door‘s Lee Je Hoon. (Also a costar of Suzy‘s in Architecture 101.)
