Joo Won takes the lead in Bridal Mask

Joo Won (Ojakkyo Brothers) has signed on to take the lead in Gaksital, or Bridal Mask, an upcoming KBS drama based on the 70s manhwa by Heo Young-man. So this is why he dropped the second lead in Moon That Embraces the Sun. Guess you can’t blame a guy for wanting to play a hero.


Gaksital is a famous manhwa set in the 1930s, during the Japanese occupation. The hero, Lee Kang-to, is known as ‘Gaksital’ because he wears a mask to hide his face — one of those traditional play masks, specifically the rosy-cheeked one reserved for the female role, aka the bride. He’s an unassuming young man in real life, but when he dons his superhero mask, he fights injustice and rights wrongs during one of the darkest periods of Korea’s history. The manhwa itself, written in 1974, is described as astoundingly contemporary, and deals with a myriad of social issues, still praised for its nationalistic stance.

The 10-billion won project is planning to be a huge action-adventure blockbuster, and if they manage to pull it off with style, it could very well be this year’s City Hunter. Joo Won’s got some serious charisma as an action hero, and with two ratings hits already under his belt, it looks like he’s going for the kill with his third. I just hope they don’t take this whole mask thing too literally, because WHY WOULD YOU COVER UP THE PRETTY? Writing is Yoo Hyun-mi of My Happy Home and Green Rose, and directing is PD Yoon Sung-shik, of thriller masterpiece Story of a Man.

Bridal Mask plans for a May premiere on KBS. Um… is it May yet?

Lee Si Young goes wild for Wild Romance

Lee Si Young foreshowed the emergence of new type of ‘queen of romantic comedy’ in the KBS2’s new drama, Wild Romance.
Lee Si Young has taken up the role of Yoo Eun Jae, wrestler-turned-bodyguard. On the first episode of the drama, which aired on January 4, she forewarned that she′d be standing firm against Park Moo Yul, the loathsome (at least to her) baseball player whom she has to protect, depicting a hot-blooded character whose fists start flying when her temper is ruffled.

From Lee′s first scene, the actress caught eyes with her new style, complete with short wavy hair and a shockingly tacky outfit. She set out to affirm herself as a ‘fashion terrorist’ with haggard knit sweater, wide and flappy skirt and beat-up sneakers.
But while the normally pretty actress may have given up some of her looks for the role, the transformation does much for her stature as an sincere actress. The new image was effective in displaying Yoo Eun Jae’s tomboyish and rough side, allowing viewers to forget that Lee Si Young was in fact, just acting a role.
So far, Lee has been well-received for her acting, which, while a little over the top sometimes, works well when the actress is spitting out rough words mixed with curses, and behaving as wild as the title indicates.
Immediately after the airing, viewers rush to the drama’s comment board to leave positive feedback.
They reacted by saying, “Her image is ruined, but she is still so lovely. I’m looking forward to seeing Yoon Eun Jae’s unpredictable charms” and “The drama has a novelty that sets it apart from other romantic comedies. Lee Si Young’s acting that has grown mature was impressive.”

Seungri on his drama debut at MBC Light & Shadow

Big Bang’s Seungri made his drama acting debut through the MBC Light and Shadow.
He played the role of Ahn Jae Su, an aspiring singer from Yeosu, Jeolla  Province and he completed the shooting in Hapjeon, South Geongsang  Province on December 24.
Despite it being eight degrees below zero, Seungri showed off his acting  talent, living up to his name as a famous idol group member.

Of course, Seungri had it a little easier than most, as the Big Bang  member is originally from Gwangju, Jeolla Province, where Yeosu is  located – and so, adopting the strong accent was like second nature.
Seungri shared, “It was an honor to be in a drama that I often watch. It  was my first time taking part in shooting a drama. When I saw the cast  and crew work so hard in spite of the cold weather, I realized a lot of  energy and sweat is needed for a drama to be completed. I think it was a  good experience for me.”
The episode on which Seungri cameoed is set to air on December 26, at 9:55pm.
