[Hot Takes from the Noonas] "Goblin", "Descendants of the Sun" writer Kim Eun-sook is back with a new project, "Mr. Sunshine"

Just months after finishing work on "Goblin", Kim Eun-sook is already back at work with new project, "Mr. Sunshine".

Set in the early 20th century, "Mr. Sunshine" tells the story of a star-crossed love between a common soldier in the resistance movement against the Japanese occupation and an aristocrat's daughter. There's no word on casting yet, so feel free to fantasize about who you'd like to see in some fantastic period clothing in a time of great turmoil in Korea. Don't get too attached to your selection, though; Kim Eun-sook already has an actor in mind, though she has yet to reveal any names. Not surprising, since she's just about to start work on the script and the drama is in the very early stages of pre-production.

Seo Ye-ji Takes a Step Further as Actress with Cult Drama

Actress Seo Ye-ji is receiving rave reviews for her performance in her latest TV series, "Save Me". She plays a strong-willed young woman who struggles to free herself and her family from the clutches of a religious cult.

Despite her delicate, feminine appearance, Yeo's charisma stands out in the drama. "I thought a lot about how to portray my character. The director and I discussed it every day and gradually I worked it out", the actress said.

"Filming left me bloody and bruised; at first I thought it was makeup that had been applied without my noticing. It didn't hurt during shooting, but when I got home I ached all over and realized the scratches and bruises were real", she said.
