  • I was wondering when we would start seeing some references to the show’s title, and we finally see it in Won Jin-ah’s (Hellbound) character poster for Unicorn — along with some sparkles and rainbows, of course. Coupang Play’s office sitcom stars stars Shin Ha-kyun (Beyond Evil), and is directed by PD Kim Hye-young (Be Melodramatic) with In Ji-hye (Extraordinary You) and comedian Yoo Byung-jae co-writing. The drama premieres in August. [KBS]

With a well-received movie and drama version already made in Japan, it’ll be interesting to see how the Korean remake plays out. Casting is confirmed for Kim Seo-hyung (Mine), Seo Young-hee (Would You Like a Cup of Coffee), Yoo Sun (Eve), Lee Chun-hee (Law School), and Gong Jung-hwan (Halo, Rookie Historian Gu Hae-ryung) among others. Filming begins this month with Kim Seung-woo directing and Noh Yoon-su penning the scripts. [MBC]
