[Hot Takes from the Noonas] Kim Ok-bin offered lead role in "Manipulation"

Fresh off the success of "The Villainess" at Cannes, Kim Ok-bin is the latest actress to be considered for the female lead in newsroom drama, "Manipulation".

Filming has already started and it's set to air in July, but "Manipulation" has yet to cast its female lead. While Kang Han-na and Chun Woo-hee were previously in the running, it's currently Kim Ok-bin who's considering taking on the role of Prosecutor Kwon So-ra. If she accepts, she'll be up against Namgoong Min as a reporter in a team led by Yoo Joon-sang. Jeon Hye-bin has also signed on to play a photojournalist.

[Hot Takes from the Noonas] Kim Ji-suk up for lead role in "No Sex and the City" with Han Ye-seul

Will Kim Ji-suk finally graduate to male lead in SBS's latest romantic comedy?

Perpetual charming second lead Kim Ji-suk may have finally made it to the big time as he considers joining the cast of "No Sex and the City", a romantic comedy drama purporting to depict the lives of 30-something virgin women as they make their way in modern Seoul. Leaving aside the premise of modern 30-something virgins (what?), being a lead in a romantic comedy seems like a great idea for Kim Ji-suk, who can bring both comedy and intensity in equal measure. He was equally as great as the handsome but loony Jin Sang in "Another Oh Hae Young" as he was weeping his eyes out (in a shower, no less) in "Angel Eyes". Not to mention his latest turn as Yeonsangun in "Rebel: Thief Who Stole the People".

[Hot Takes from the Noonas] Jung Yu-mi considering lead role in Noh Hee-kyeong's latest drama, "Live"

Writer Noh Hee-kyeong is set to come back with "Live" a new drama slated to broadcast in early 2018, with an offer out to Jung Yu-mi to star.

There aren't a lot of details about "Live", but the announcement described it as a police drama, exploring their role in society as civil servants and keepers of the peace. Noh Hee-kyeong has an interesting track record as a writer ("Dear My Friends", "It's Okay, That's Love", "That Winter, the Wind Blows"), so it's likely that we're not going to get a typical cop drama. At the very last, we can probably expect complex relationships, layered characters, and a humanistic view of the police and their lives. Kim Kyu-tae, who directed four of her last five dramas, is set to direct.

[Hot Takes from the Noonas] Choi Jin-hyuk offered lead in "Hospital Ship" opposite Ha Ji-won

Choi Jin-hyuk may follow up OCN hit, "Tunnel - Drama" by putting a lab coat and a stethoscope back on to play a doctor in MBC's "Hospital Ship"

"Hospital Ship" tells the story of a group of doctors on a hospital ship (clever name, I know) which sails around to tend to islanders in small villages. An offer is already out to Ha Ji-won to play a surgeon on the run from the collapse of her family, while Choi Jin-hyuk will play the warm but strong doctor who will melt her heart. Ha Ji-won has been considering whether to take on the role for the better part of two months, so maybe the inclusion of Choi Jin-hyuk will give her the push she needs to accept.
