Chun Woo-hee, Kim Dong-wook

  • Casting has been confirmed for Chun Woo-hee (Be Melodramatic) and Kim Dong-wook (King of Pigs) in tvN’s new series Beneficial Fraud. With Chun playing a notorious con artist and Kim her sympathetic lawyer, the drama is currently slated for the Monday-Tuesday slot, premiering on May 29. Production is being led by writer Han Woo-joo and PD Lee Soo-hyun (Shooting Stars), who worked with Kim previously on Find Me in Your Memory. [News1]
  • Speaking of the busy Chun Woo-hee, the actress is also fielding an offer for the fantasy romance Although I Am Not a Hero, where she may be paired with Jang Ki-yong (Now We Are Breaking Up). Production is still in the planning stages with scripts by Joo Hwa-mi (Welcome, Introverted Boss) and PD Jo Hyun-tak (Snowdrop, SKY Castle) at the helm. [Star News]

  • Beckoning spring with blue skies and pretty pastel hanboks, SBS’s The Secret Romantic Guest House has released a new poster featuring our main quartet: Shin Ye-eun (The Glory), Ryeoun (Through the Darkness), Kang Hoon (Little Women), and Jung Geon-joo (Kiss Sixth Sense). The sageuk romance will be fluttering to our screens on March 20. [My Daily]
  • Over on KBS, promos have started trickling in for their next weekender The Real Deal Has Come and the newest poster features the leads, Baek Jin-hee (Happy to Die) and Ahn Jae-hyun (People With Flaws). With the tagline claiming that the baby is indeed theirs, the tropes are aplenty with a soon-to-be single mom, contract relationships, and the usual but fun family shenanigans. The family drama launches this month on March 25. [News1]

  • After teasing its Q2 slate what feels like forever ago, Netflix has dropped a teaser poster for Black Knight, with the completely unhelpful information: Coming Soon. The dystopic sci-fi series stars Kim Woo-bin (Our Blues), Song Seung-heon (Voice 4), Kang Yoo-seok (Payback) and Esom (Taxi Driver), and puts us in a world with no air, where delivery drivers risk their lives to get people the things they need to survive.

  • A new batch of posters have dropped for KBS’s Oasis, showcasing our angst-ridden trio: Jang Dong-yoon (Search), Seol In-ah (Business Proposal), and Choo Young-woo (Once Upon a Small Town).
