Chae Soo Bin, Jinyoung, Jang Dong Yoon Cast in KBS Drama Special

KBS is producing a drama special called If We Were a Season, and it’s been confirmed that Jinyoung and Jang Dong-yoon have signed on to star opposite Chae Soo-bin, who confirmed her role back in April.

Jinyoung's character in If We Were a Season is one with a one-sided crush on Chae Soo-bin’s character. The show is described as a youth melo, so I suspect that Jang Dong-yoon’s character, described as fresh and bright, will be the third leg in a love triangle among the three leads. If We Were a Season will be helmed by PD Kang Soo-yeon and written by Im Ye-jin, who were both junior members of the PD and writing teams in Moonlight Drawn By Clouds.

There’s no word on when If We Were a Season will air, but it looks like KBS aired their 2016 drama specials between September and November of last year, so we can probably expect it to release sometime this fall or early winter.

apparently attendance is (mostly) based on personal choice which probably explains why some people opted out on it. but, some reasons i've seen for some of the other sm idols not going include: key / krystal / minho filming for their dramas, taemin doing jpn comeback / concert prep, luna being in london, victoria and lay being busy with their schedules in china, etc.

Song Ji Na Revealed to be Main Writer for "The King Loves"

It has been announced that writer Song Ji-na is the main screenwriter behind MBC's upcoming melo sageuk The King Loves. The drama, based on a novel of the same name, is about the intertwined loves and desires of three people in the Goryeo dynasty and stars Im Siwan, Yoona, and Hong Jong-hyun.

Song Ji-na's previous credits include: Healer, Story of a Man, What's Up and sageuks Faith, Legend and Great Ambition, as well as ’90s mega-hits Eyes of Dawn and Sandglass.

Shoots for the fully pre-produced show have already wrapped up this month, and they only just announced Song Ji-na’s involvement. The writing team for The King Loves was unusual in and of itself in that it’s credited to a company of writers called Airborne. From what I gather, the story is that Airborne is made up of Song Ji-na’s mentees, and she was initially only going to participate in an advisory role, like a creative director of sorts. However, due to the complexity of the plot and characters, Song Ji-na got more and more involved in the writing process and essentially became the lead writer, though they’re still undecided as to whether they will change the writing credits to include her name.

The King Loves is due to follow Lookout in the Monday-Tuesday slot, and will premiere in July.

Omona, do you like Song Ji Na's dramas? Healer is one of my absolute favorites and I love What's Up. Does this make you more or less likely to check out "The King Loves"?

OMONA'S PICK; Who should compete on a second season of Girl Spirit?

It was nearly a year ago that the first season of Girl Spirit, a competition show aired at spotlighting vocalists from lesser-known (mostly recently-debuted) girl groups, aired on JTBC. The competition was simple; each week, the twelve competitors would perform a song (or two) under a theme, and an audience of 111 (including the judges) would vote in two rounds to decide the ranking for the week. The weekly winners would have their songs released officially and decide the performance order for the next week, with prizes to be won for the overall winner and runner-up. The talented contestants came from a broad range of groups with a broad range of styles, and the show was a hit, with several releases charting in the top 100 on Melon. JTBC spoke of hoping to produce a second season, but there hasn't been any word of it, despite many netizens loudly nominating their favourites.

So let's just think about who might turn up on a potential season 2! In season 1 there were twelve (12) competitors from different groups, so I've picked out sixteen (16) different groups, none of which have won a music show trophy, and chosen one or two nominees from each group. Under the cut is audio deliciousness galore so sit back, relax, and listen to the vocal stylings of some girls whose talent might warrant more success than they've been given.
