Exciting News

Lee Dong Wook will be starring in a new drama, tentatively titled Bad Couple. The drama will air on SBS in June.

The second piece of news also has to do with the cast of a new drama. The drama is called Cain and Abel and the confirmed cast includes So Ji Sup, Ji Jin Hee, and Jung Ryeo Won. This will be SJS’s first drama upon his return from the army.

I love the male cast. However, I wish they would cast another leading actress. The thing is, I don’t have a problem with JRW, per say. It’s just… well, I’m indifferent towards her. I liked her in My Name is Kim Sam Soon but I guess I still haven’t gotten over her most recent work, which is Which Star Are You From?

Nonetheless, I’m very excited. Not just one or two, but three gorgeous men in new dramas?! Nice!

Ji Jin-hee Transforms into Tough Guy

Actor Ji Jin-hee has shed his previous gentle image and transformed into a “tough guy” in his first action movie, Su.

Su is the first Korean movie by ethnic Korean director Choi Yang-il, who is globally renowned as the best filmmaker in Japan and the godfather of “hardboiled” films. In the movie, Ji charismatically portrays a cold-hearted man who avenges his brother’s death.

Su sets the standard for the new genre called “hardboiled classic.” The unveiling of the movie’s teaser-poster has drawn attention to how Choi’s powerful and sophisticated production techniques will harmonize with the passionate and talented acting of the movie’s cast.

Ji expressed a strong commitment to movie, in which he plays his first action role. During the photo shoot of the poster, he fully displayed his charisma and exquisite facial acting, and even used an axe that appears in the movie as the main weapon of his character.

Su a hardboiled classic that blends the cynical yet sensitive visual images created by director Choi Yang-il with powerful action and a well-knit plot, will open late this year.
