POPSEOUL! News Flash: Drama news of the weekPosted: February 23, 2008
Is Kim Bum hot enough to play the younger version of Song Seung Heon in the upcoming MBC drama East of Eden? Kim Bum’s new role is definitely an upgrade from his High Kick days, but we are not sure if he’s hot enough for the role. The drama will be broadcasted in June 2008 with Jo Min Ki, Yoo Dong Gun and Lee Mi Seok.
Lee Junki’s new drama, Illjimae was bumped from premiering in April to the end of 2008 because SBS has decided to show I Love You with Ahn Jae Wook and Gourmet with Kim Rae Won. Ouch! Iljimae’s filming group will complete 100% of their scenes before its broadcast like the drama I Love You.
Hong Gil Dong, Kang Ji Hwan’s new fusion period drama, has been voted most popular by netizens despite its low ratings. Sung Yuri wasn’t able to outdo Yun Eun Hye’s Coffee Prince because she didn’t have the annoying voice and the flat chest to go along with her manly character, but the young netizens are still fascinated by the interesting plot lines.
To overcome the low and depressing ratings, the crew of Single Papa in Love presented Heo Yi Jae with a surprised birthday cake and gifts on February 19th. The emaciated actress forgot that it was her birthday, making her 20th surprise birthday party at the bus station even more touching. Aww.
