News bites: August 3, 2022

Do Sang-woo, Shin Jae-ha, Cha Eun-woo

  • tvN’s Alchemy of Souls has started filming for Part 2 and Do Sang-woo (The One and Only) has been added to the lineup. Who wants to bet he’s a baddie? Most of the cast will be reprising their roles, except Jung So-min, who was only contracted for the first part of the series. (Cue: weeping) For Part 2, Go Yoon-jung (the original Nak-su) will be returning to the forefront as our heroine. Production continues under PD Park Joon-hwa and writers Hong Jung-eun and Hong Mi-ran.

  • Meanwhile, Shin Jae-ha (My Unfamiliar Family) is joining Jeon Do-yeon (Human Disqualification) and Jung Kyung-ho (Hospital Playlist 2) in tvN’s One Time Scandal (roughly translated). Aiming for a 2023 broadcast, PD Yoo Je-won (Hometown Cha-Cha-Cha) is at the helm, with writing by Yang Hee-seung (Weightlifting Fairy Kim Bok-ju). [Osen]
  • Cha Eun-woo (True Beauty) has been offered a new romance called This Relationship is Uncontrollable (roughly translated), playing a lawyer — dramaland’s favorite job this year. He will be facing some unprecedented challenges, though, involving a Joseon-era curse and a 300-year-old forbidden text. A broadcaster has not yet been announced, but PD Nam Ki-hoon (Kiss Sixth Sense) is attached to direct with Noh Ji-seol (100 Days My Prince) penning the scripts. [Sports Chosun]

  • A new poster has dropped for seezn’s upcoming Another Record: Lee Je-hoon.

Directed by Yoon Dan-bi (Moving On), the film will be launching August 18 on seezn. [SBS]

  • Ahead of its premiere in just a few days, another trailer has been put out for the Netflix film Carter. Starring Joo-won (Alice) and directed by Jung Byung-gil (The Gray Man, The Villainess), the action blockbuster releases this week on August 5. [Yonhap News]
