Assembly: Episode 1 Screencaps

I've taken a bunch of screencaps (of mostly Jung Jae-young) and posted them below the jump. This is not a formal recap.

Jung Jae-young's First Drama

Jung Jae-young has agreed to be in the upcoming drama, Assembly, written by Jung Hyun-min. His co-star is Song Yoon-ah, and while I don't particularly like the thought of Jung Jae-young in a drama, the concept of the show and the writer make me hopeful.

Jung Jae-young is one of my favorite actors, so it may seem strange that I'm not too excited. Let me explain:
Jung's recent movies haven't done well financially, and unfortunately, a lot of top actors who do film, generally cross over into dramas because their movies failed. Second, most film actors who turn to dramas don't always do well (example, Hwang Jung-min- he's always awesome but his dramas flopped). Lastly, dramas in general lately have been bad... I just hope that Jung is doing the drama because the script, etc. were so enticing. I'll try to stay optimistic.

This point probably just pertains to me, but Park Hee-soon's recent foray into dramas have been bland and unsuccessful (I have reviews in the works) so I'm not optimistic about any of my favorites doing dramas as of late (I still feel trepidation towards Park Sung-woong's upcoming drama Hidden Identity). Hopefully, they'll all do great movies in the near future, but in the meantime, I'll be grateful for what I get.

Happy Birthday Park Yong-woo


I really hope Park Yong-woo has a new project on the way. His most recent movie Late Spring was awesome, and his two-episode drama was good (could have been better but satisfying). Anyways, pictures after the jump, and this time, there actually are some! Warning, Park Yong-woo is ADORABLE (as always).

The Deal

It's been almost a year since I first posted about this movie and its casting which premiered in Korea March 12. The official English title was released, and the movie is called The Deal. I prefer "Murder Request" which I saw floating around for a while, but they chose what they chose. Though it looks like the reviews are on the negative side, I'll just readjust my expectations accordingly because how could I not watch this movie when it has such a line-up.

Quick rehash of the plot:
Tae-soo (Kim Sang-kyung) is a veteran police officer who catches a hit-and-run suspect who turns out to be a serial killer, Kang-chun (Park Sung-woong). Unfortunately, the last victim was Tae-soo's younger sister Soo-kyung (Yoon Seung-ah) who is married to Seung-hyun (Kim Sung-kyun) and was pregnant with their first child. Wrought with grief, Seung-hyun disappears.
Three years later, Tae-soo figures out that someone is after Kang-chun who is in prison, and being unable to kill or protect his sister's murderer, Tae-soo is confronted by the sudden appearance of Seung-hyun.

Upcoming Drama: Missing Noir M

Missing Noir M had their script reading where Park Hee-soon was sporting long hair, and he's keeping it. I actually like it, but really, there's very little I wouldn't like.

Missing Noir M premieres March 28, Saturday and is slated for ten episodes. The production crew stated that they plan on finishing half of the drama by the premiere date. Park Hee-soon plays officer Oh Dae-young who acts on instinct and will be the opposite of Kim Kang-woo's Kil Soo-hyun who's all about facts.

Happy Birthday Park Hee-soon

There wasn't a lot of news about projects concerning Park Hee-soon last year because he went back to his old theater troupe during the summer (pictures below). However, he signed up for an upcoming drama on OCN which starts in March. I also read a recent article saying he did sign up for the movie co-starring with Shin Ha-kyun and Ryu Seung-soo which goes into production in March. I don't know if the movie filming is accurate (though I wish it were true), but after a bit of a break, it seems like Park Hee-soon will be quite busy for a while. As a fan, I'm always excited to see him in a new role. Hopefully he at least enjoys/enjoyed his birthday.

That's enough from me. Pic spam following jump!

Script Reading for M

I was planning to wait and post after official descriptions, posters, trailers, and such were released, but Park Hee-soon's hair was too much for me not to share. He's sporting the shag look again after opting for short haircuts in his most recent projects. Of course, this is just the script reading, so the characters will probably all look different, but the more I think about it, the more I actually want to see a veteran police officer sporting a fifty-fifty part. It defies norms and would be a visually distinct choice. Granted, if Kim Kang-woo is also going for the fifty-fifty, then it wouldn't be as distinct.

I'm really happy Park Hee-soon is in a new project even if I did wish his next project was a movie rather than a drama. But beggars can't be choosers.
