Park Hee-soon's Return to the Small Screen

WAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH!
After six years, Park Hee-soon is returning to dramaland in the up-coming SBS drama All about my Romance slated for an April, Wednesday-Thursday time slot. He'll play the second lead who helps the heroine who is a rookie politician. No confirmation about the female lead, though Han Hye-jin was cast but dropped. Lee Min-jung's name is being attached, but I hope that doesn't solidify. In the lead is Shin Ha-kyun who plays another politician who's on the opposite party of the heroine, but (obviously) they get romantically entangled and hijinks ensue.
Park's management company confirmed the casting today stating that he picked the drama because the script was fun and his friendship with Shin Ha-kyun had a positive effect.
I feel super happy that Park is returning to the small screen, but being second fiddle in a rom-com doesn't scream exciting or great to me. May be, just may be, he'll be a fun and cool …

Happy Birthday Park Hee-soon

Ah, it's that time of the year again... Park Hee-soon's birthday. Which simply means a ton of pictures!

Behind the Camera

Director Lee Jae-yong of the movie Actresses, has a new film about to hit the theaters later this month. Like his previous work, Director Lee's Behind the Camera is sort of a documentary... heck, I'll be honest, I have no clue what the movie is.
Basic premise: fourteen actors, a movie to film, and now here's the catch, no director on set. Albeit, Director Lee will still be directing, but throughout the movie, he'll only converse with the crew on set through the internet via video chat. Tensions run high as the absence of a physical director is sorely felt by cast and crew while the cameras still roll, capturing all the interactions behind the scenes.
The cast is quite the plethora of names and credentials. To name some, Yoon Yeo-jung (The Housemaid), Park Hee-soon (The Client), Kang Hye-jung (The Marriage Plot), Oh Jung-sae (I Miss You), Kim Min-hee (Helpless), Kim Ok-bin (Thirst), Ryu Duk-hwan (Faith), Lee Ha-nee (I am the King), Kim Nam-jin (First Love of the Prince
