[Orion's Drama News] Closing the Investigation

Park your life woes at the door and let them think about what they did, because today I talk drama production problems and the sad cancellation of "Housewife Detective". Fret not, however, as the usual and much happier news of image and video goodies as well as casting announcements are here just like every week.

As strong as the desire of some drama fans to keep our rose-tinted escapism glamorous in our minds may be, the reality of drama production does not change. Things have not turned out well for "Housewife Detective" and while cancellations are normal, it is still a shame to see someone's creative work lose its chances so close to creation. The problems "Housewife Detective" has been faced with have not been revealed, but they ultimately do not matter for fans. May the creators involved better luck in the future.

[Orion's Drama News] Hands-On Romances and Selfish Authors

Today I bring you courtroom love and violent bickering with "Suspicious Partner" a.k.a "Ji Chang-wook's first romantic comedy". I also take a turn for the selfish and fawn over all the upcoming dramas I have my eye on, which have released new material. May the Dramagods grace us all with fun spring and summer dramas.

I would also call my partner suspicious (and call the police) if he kicked me in the face or if he responded to kicks in the face with infatuated smiles, but this is Dramaland and this is one of the two new teasers for "Suspicious Partner". The series looks like a typical modern romantic comedy, meaning one including murders. It has worked before, however, so I do not worry too much. Ji Chang-wook is looking spiffy and Nam Ji-hyeon will hopefully be doing more than being damseled, so bring on the cute.

Family Drama 'Dear My Friends' Beats 'Goblin,' 'Moonlight Drawn By Clouds,' 'W,' 'Romantic Doctor Kim' In Baeksang Art Awards

In a surprising twist, tvN's megahit fantasy drama "Goblin" did not win at the Baeksang Art Awards 2017. While the drama raked in a lot of the major awards, it was beaten by "Dear My Friends" as Best Drama.

The winner came as a shock because the category was stacked with blockbuster dramas. Apart from Gong Yoo's "Goblin", other nominees include Park Bo Gum's 'Moonlight Drawn By Clouds", Lee Jong Suk's fantasy drama "W: Two Worlds" and Han Suk Hyu's "Romantic Doctor Kim". "Dear, My Friends" a weekend drama produced by tvN was the definite underdog in the competition, Koreaboo reported.

[Orion's Drama News] Trolling Teasers

Between awards and the upcoming elections, we are witnessing some pretty intense in their respective venue weeks . If you appreciated my ramblings on the dramas I am looking forward to last week, then you are in the right article. Selfish Ori returns and I bring teaser woes along with the usual news.

The Curse of Lackluster Teasers

Anyone who actively follows drama news knows basic information about shows of interest. While teaser videos are not supposed to reveal too much, I do feel deflated when all they do is wield star power. Even my upcoming dramas of interest are guilty of this to a degree. "Circle" does quite well, as its two teasers have style and tease mystery. On the other hand "Lookout" has little to offer aside from a cast looking comically tense. Even "Secret Forest" does this in its new teasers. Throw us a bone here, productions.

[Orion's Drama News] Armed and Dangerous

Have you been looking forward to some dramas about people being violent and/or miserable in various ways? Probably not, but I have a handy list of some upcoming ones which have released new goodies this week. I also present "Woman of Dignity" and its hand fetish before I talk romance in "Fight My Way".

If sageuk or melodrama are not your genres and you prefer your murders outside of romantic comedies, these upcoming and thematically bleak works which have been on my radar for a while might do the trick. "Circle" has new posters and I am still waiting for the the science fiction of it. "Duel" is seeing dual and yes, I am still confused about the title. "Secret Forest" has dropped a new video as well and "Lookout" teases style it can hopefully bring substance to.
