First Poster of "Sword and Flower"

Production is underway for KBS’s Sword and Flower, the Goguryeo-era sageuk starring Uhm Tae Woong and Kim Ok Bin as star-crossed lovers with two warring fathers, a political conspiracy, and the fate of an entire country standing between them. Just your average Wednesday-Thursday around these parts. The first teaser poster is out, which looks fantastic — mystery, sweeping romance. 

Playing the two patriarchs at war are Kim Young Chul (IRIS 2) as King Young Ryu of Gogur ...

"Sword and Flower" Gets Park Su Jin

Casting continues on KBS’s Sword and Flower, with one actress confirming and another issuing the usual “maybe, we’re considering it, nothing’s final” statement. This is the show looking to reunite Uhm Tae Woong with his Equator Man director, although Uhm is not yet confirmed either; it’ll be a sageuk set in the Goguryeo era with lovers torn apart by family strife and revenge. The plot centers around the heroine’s father being killed by the illegi ...

Uhm Tae Woong To Star "Sword and Flower"

Yi Sun Shin drama that Uhm Tae Wong was supposed to star in not so much anymore, since that production stalled in development. But never fear, because busy busy Uhm Tae Woong already has a new prospective project lined up, as the star of the new sageuk romance Sword and Flower, due out this summer. Can’t really complain about more Uhm Tae-woong on the small screen.

It’s a romeo-and-juliet love story that purports to be in the vein of The Princess's Man, this time set ...

The Flower Boys Join "Dating Agency: Cyrano"

Casting news is rolling in for tvN’s new romantic comedy series Dating Agency: Cyrano, which is based on the film starring Uhm Tae Woong as the matchmaker-turned-romantic-target and which has inexplicably shuffled around the words in its title but made no more sense of them.

The show has already cast Lee Jong Hyuk in the lead role, while Girls Generation idol Sooyoung is in the Park Shin Hye role as one of the dating agency’s employees. Lee Chun Hee was also part of t ...

Lee Jong Hyuk Gets Headline

Lee Jong Hyuk is headlining. The fourth installment of the Oh Boy series for cable network tvN will be Cyrano Dating Agency — and yes, it’s the same agency that Uhm Tae Woong once ran in the movies. He’ll be playing that same character, and is probably a better fit for the smooth-talking puppetmaster of romance, though of course he becomes his own worst enemy when it comes to his own love life.

The movie starred Uhm Tae Woong as the leader of an unusual dating a ...
