Jeon Ji-hyun, Kang Dong-won

  • Jeon Ji-hyun (Jirisan) and Kang Dong-won (Broker) are considering offers for a new spy series called Polaris (working title). Although Jeon’s most recent drama aired in 2021, it’s been much longer for Kang whose last drama was the 2004 series Magic. Filming is set to begin once casting has been finalized, with production being led by the duo behind Little Women, PD Kim Hee-won (Vincenzo) and writer Jung Seo-kyung (Mother). [News1]
  • Another actor who has long been absent from dramaland is Sol Kyung-gu (Kill Boksoon), who will be pitted against his rising opponent Kim Hee-ae (A Couple’s World) in Netflix’s new political series The Whirlwind. PD Kim Yong-wan (If You Wish Upon Me) is at the helm, with scripts by Park Kyung-soo (Whisper). [MBC]

  • Speaking of Netflix, a new poster has dropped for Black Knight, giving us another look at the barren, dystopian world with our masked hero Kim Woo-bin (Our Blues).
