Netflix announced the primary cast for Everyday Dose of Sunshine, which stars Park Bo-young (Doom at Your Service), Yeon Woo-jin (Thirty-Nine), Jang Dong-yoon (Search), and Lee Jung-eun (Our Blues). The story is adapted from the common webtoon Morning Comes to Psychiatric Wards Also (roughly translated), which itself draws upon the genuine-life experiences of a psychiatric unit nurse. Filming has now commenced with PD Lee Jae-kyu (All of Us Are Dead) at the helm. [News1]

Netflix has been busy preparing for The Glory as nicely and the final lineup contains: Song Hye-gyo (Now We Are Breaking Up), Lee Do-hyun (Melancholia), Im Ji-yeon (Rose Mansion), Yeom Hye-ran (The Uncanny Counter), Park Sung-hoon (Memorials), and Jung Sung-il (Our Blues). The revenge drama is writer Kim Eun-sook’s (The King: Eternal Monarch, Mr. Sunshine) newest project with PD Ahn Gil-ho (Happiness) as the talent behind the camera. [Sports Donga]

Reports have Kwak Sun-young (Inspector Koo) joining Cha Tae-hyun (Police University) and Jung Yong-hwa (Sell Your Haunted Property) in KBS’s Brain Collaboration (roughly translated). With filming set to start this coming August, the drama is aiming for an early 2023 premiere with PD Lee Jin-seo attached to direct and writing by Park Kyung-sun. [Sports Donga]
I was asking yourself when we would start out seeing some references to the show’s title, and we ultimately see it in Won Jin-ah’s (Hellbound) character poster for Unicorn — along with some sparkles and rainbows, of course. Coupang Play’s workplace sitcom stars stars Shin Ha-kyun (Beyond Evil), and is directed by PD Kim Hye-young (Be Melodramatic) with In Ji-hye (Extraordinary You) and comedian Yoo Byung-jae co-writing. The drama premieres in August. [KBS]

Seezn has lined up a thriller known as Paper Moon, which is primarily based on the Japanese novel by the exact same name (“Kami no Tsuki”) by Mitsuyo Kakuta. With a nicely-received film and drama version currently produced in Japan, it’ll be intriguing to see how the Korean remake plays out. Casting is confirmed for Kim Seo-hyung (Mine), Seo Young-hee (Would You Like a Cup of Coffee), Yoo Sun (Eve), Lee Chun-hee (Law College), and Gong Jung-hwan (Halo, Rookie Historian Gu Hae-ryung) amongst other folks. Filming starts this month with Kim Seung-woo directing and Noh Yoon-su penning the scripts. [MBC]
More than on tvN, plans are underway for the fantasy romance Higher Priest Rembrary, which stars Kim Min-kyu (Business enterprise Proposal), Go Bo-kyul (Hi Bye, Mama!), Lee Jang-woo (Oh! Samkwang Villa), and Yeh Ji-won (So Do Sol Sol La La Sol). Primarily based on a common internet novel known as Sacred Idols (roughly translated), production is aiming for an early 2023 release.

Stills from the initial script reading for ENA’s Great Job have been released featuring cast members Jung Il-woo (Bossam: Steal the Fate), Kwon Yuri (Bossam: Steal the Fate), Eum Moon-seok (Hello? It is Me!), and Song Sang-eun (Grid) amongst other folks. With PD Kang Min-gu and PD Kim Sung-jin co-directing, scripts had been co-written by Kim Jung-ae and Kwon Hee-kyung. The investigative romance-hero story premieres mid-August in the Wednesday-Thursday slot, following Extraordinary Lawyer Woo. [KBS]
