1. Gu Hye-sun offered to play role of Uhm Jung-hwa’s copycat in You’re Too Much?!

It’s been a hot minute since we have seen Gy Hye-sun on the K-Drama scene. She’s been busy being married to Ahn Jae-hyun but now things are about to change for her.

YG Entertainment, her agency, has announced that she is considering a role for the K-Drama “You’re Too Much!” If this is true she will be making her comeback and fans can finally breathe a sigh of relief. This sounds like the perfect comeback for her and also will undoubtedly steam up the hype machine for the show.

2. Kang Dong-won and Han Hyo-joo are signed up for a K-Drama thriller called Golden Slumber?!

Could this hype train get any more intense?! The new remake of the thriller Golden Slumber which is based on a novel by Osaka Kotaro is going full steam with the recent announcement! Kang Dong-won is now signed on to headline the whole deal and Han Hyo-joo will be his costar! We are excited to see the two work together and assume that their cinematic dynamics will be off the charts!

The story is centered around a regular Joe who is framed for murdering a newly elected prime minister. He’s innocent but the evidence is stacked against him. The story follows him for 48 hours as he’s on the run and tries to clear his name. Talk about drama!

3. Jo Seung-woo and Bae Doo-na rumored for a new tvN thriller?!

Is this what dreams are made of?! If so don’t pinch us and wake us (unless it’s true). Supposedly Jo Seung-woo and Bae Doo-na have gotten offers to be the Stars in Secret Forest, a new drama. Right now there’s not much known about the show but that it tells the tale of a man whose a persecutor and he lost his emotions and uncovered a secret which forces him to find the truth.

While the premise itself is already interesting we can’t help but think that adding these two to the fold will only take this shooting star into another galaxy.
