Park Hee-soon cast in Kabi

 Park Hee-soon has been cast in the big-budget film Kabi. More information about the film can be found on dramabeans. The film boasts a production cost of ₩10,000,000,000 (won) which is a bit less than $9,000,000 (US dollar). The film is set during Emperor Gojong's reign, and Park Hee-soon will play Emperor Gojong. The film plans to release in the summer of 2011 which is good news since some of Park Hee-soon's movies like to float in limbo and never get a release date. (What happened to Bloody Fight!!??)
I like 3 out of the 4 main actors, but my feelings for Lee Da-hae isn't hate but more indifference mixed with some dislike. I, also, like the time period the film is taking place in because of two amazing dramas: Evasive Inquiry Agency and Jejoongwon. Overall, I hope the film does well because Barefoot Dream didn't do so well, and Park actually left the country because of it. Plus, Joo Jin-mo needs another hit. His career is like a roller coaster (so many hits and miss…

Merry Christmas from the Cast of GLove

Awww! This is cute. Though it isn't quite Christmas yet where I am, it is Christmas in Korea so MERRY CHRISTMAS! Jung's poster is aimed towards the singles and roughly means to give them some fighting spirit.
Yoo Sun's poster says, "With passion, anyone can have a merry Christmas!" Then here come the high school students looking adorable!
From left to right: "Even cold (impersonal), city men have a warm Christmas!" "Nuna (term for older women used by males), Merry Christmas. Accept my 'eye-smile' as a present" "During Christmas, gather up the courage and propose to the one you love!"

Poster for GLove

The posters for Jung Jae-young's new movie GLove are out. If the poster and title weren't dead give-aways, the movie is about baseball. Jung is a famous baseball pitcher Kim Sang-nam but gets into a fight. The incident tarnishes his name so his manager makes him coach at a high school for the deaf in hopes of fixing his image. However, the baseball team only has ten members and the skills of a middle school team. Since the kids can't hear, they can't find the ball, and since they can't talk, they can't communicate on the field. Despite all this, the team's dream is to go to the nationals, and with Sang-nam as their coach, they feel that they're one step closer to their dream. Sang-nam tells them their dream is impossible, but as he watches their passion, he begins to have a heart.
Hmmm... the story doesn't seem new but there are some things that shouldn't change. I love the underdog story, and the underdog works so well for the sports genre so no…

Park Sung-woong in Strong Heart: Part 1

The show was aired 2010/12/14. For those of you who don't know what Strong Heart is, it is a variety show hosted by Kang Ho-dong (1 Night 2 Days, Golden Fishery) and Lee Seung-gi (My Girlfriend is a Gumiho). A lot of guests come out and tell a story about their life. Usually, guests tell two main stories each, and two episodes are aired as part one (week one) and part two (week two).

The Fixer (aka Troubleshooter)

I decided to write a review.
Warning: the following may contain spoilers, but I tried to refrain from revealing too much.

Main Cast:
Sul Kyung-goo plays Kang Tae-shik, an ex-cop who now runs an agency that does odd jobs such as taking photos of cheating spouses.
Lee Jung-jin plays Jang Pil-ho, a cop and the villian.
Oh Dal-soo plays Choi Sang-chul, the good (but silly) cop.

Park Hee-soon's Interview with Elle

Here is the original article in Korean  I translated parts of the interview down below. Due to my elementary level Korean and time constraints, I only included questions/answers that I found entertaining or interesting.
This interview was for Park's upcoming action movie Bloody Fight (혈투). I have yet to hear a release date but am waiting with much anticipation.

My comments that weren't in the article are in grey.

Weren't there any after effects?(the filming was said to be physically straining)
The three of us went to get a ringer's injection. It was hard since we were soaked in salt and had to have a bloody fight. The action wasn't cool like wire scenes because we may have had swords but basically fought like dogs. We used our knives like axes and stabbed so hard that they broke against the wall; that was the kind of bloody fight we did. We filmed like that all night but when morning came, we just couldn't possibly continue. The three of us, with our slashes, f…
