With each character representing the police, prosecution, and vigilante justice, the story will follow our trio as they team up to tackle the underbelly of Gangnam. With filmmaker Park Nu-ri (Money) attached to direct, the production is planning to start filming later this year. [JTBC (1), (2)]
  • Lee Min-ki (My Liberation Notes) is reviewing an offer to star in a new series called Crash. Still in the planning stages, the investigative drama will be taking a dive into traffic crimes. In the meantime, Lee has been keeping busy with JTBC’s Hip (a.k.a. Behind Your Touch) (working title) as well as Wavve’s Look at Me on his roster this year. [Star News]

  • The cute continues in the latest poster for tvN’s The Heavenly Idol as Kim Min-kyu (Business Proposal) prays for success while Go Bo-kyul (Hi Bye, Mama!) crowns our fish-out-of-water as her prince. The fantasy rom-com premieres next month on February 15, just on the tails of Saint Valentine. [My Daily]
