Kim Tae Hee and Lee Yo Won share something in common with lots of Drama Fever viewers–a passion for Sungkyunkwan Scandal!

Secret Garden is still two weeks away from its debut, but the upcoming soul-swap drama has already been sold to the overseas market, based on the star power of Hyun Bin and Ha Ji Won.

Catch the trailer for Secret Garden, released last week, here.
Poetry, the story of an older woman who discovers that her grandson has bullied a fellow student into committing suicide, won Best Picture at this year’s Daejong Film Awards, beating out flashier films such as The Housemaid and I Saw The Devil.

The Playful Kiss cast must be going through some serious deja vu–their drama just wrapped up, but they’re Kim Hyun Joong and company reunited for another press conference to announce the debut of the YouTube version of the show (Playful Kiss: Plan B?)

Kim Nam Joo‘s new book, Kim Nam Joo’s House, is climbing the charts, perhaps spurred on by her peppy new drama Queen of Reversals. The star opens her door (literally, on the cover) to readers who may have fantasized about what it’s like to be 1) a huge star and 2) married to Kim Seung Woo.
Finally, more wish fulfillment in the form of a new MBC variety show that sends male celebrities to wait on famous ladies hand and foot.
