K-League Takes All-Star Game to Hanoi in Marketing Push

In any major sport, the All-Star Game is a highlight of the season, as the spirit of competition eases, allowing fans and players alike to enjoy a carnival atmosphere.

This year, the K-League will hold its All-Star Game in Vietnam. A team of 18 league stars will face the Vietnamese U-23 national team in Hanoi on Saturday. The first K-League All-Star Game to be held overseas, the move is part of the league's efforts to offset its waning popularity at home.

As in other Southeast Asian countries, football is the most popular sport in Vietnam, and interest is high in the major Asian leagues as well as the European ones.

[Hot Takes from the Noonas] Sin Seong-rok, Choi Min-soo, and Kang Ye-won to star in "Man Who Dies to Live"

MBC rounds out the cast of family comedy drama, "Man Who Dies to Live", as it confirms Sin Seong-rok, Choi Min-soo, and Kang Ye-won as the leads.

If you're excited about that cast, then brace yourself for the plot: Choi Min-soo will play Jang Dal-goo, a man who leaves Korea in the 1970s and becomes a count in a fictional Middle Eastern country named Bodantia. He comes home to reconcile with his daughter and son-in-law, played respectively by Kang Ye-won and Sin Seong-rok.

if I had to pick someone to play an eccentric count dad, Choi Min-soo would probably have been my second choice. Strangely enough, my first choice might have been Sin Seong-rok; he's played villain often enough to prove he can pull off gravitas (see "Liar Game" and "My Love from the Star"), and he's equally good at playing absurd (see "Trot Romance"). Here's hoping he's not wasted in a role that's described as handsome but boring.

[Hot Takes from the Noonas] "Manipulation" finally gets a female lead as Eom Ji-won signs on to star opposite Namgoong Min

The casting roller coaster for "Manipulation" has finally come to a halt as Eom Ji-won makes her return to the small screen to play a prosecutor opposite Namgoong Min and Yoo Joon-sang.

After offering the role to what seemed like every film actress they could find, the producers of "Manipulation" rounded out the stellar cast with the addition of Eom Ji-won as the lead. Now that all the pieces are in place, "Manipulation" is looking more and more intriguing; a team of reporters will fight to reveal corruption, with the help of Kwon So-ra, played by Eom Ji-won, a prosecutor who graduated at the top of her class, but puts people off with her blunt manner.

[Hot Takes from the Noonas] Lee Byung-hun to star in Kim Eun-sook's period drama, "Mr. Sunshine"

Lee Byung-hun will finally make a comeback to the small screen in "Mr. Sunshine", the latest from Kim Eun-sook, the writer of "Goblin" and "Descendants of the Sun".

When Kim Eun-sook recently announced her latest project, "Mr. Sunshine", she added that she already had an actor in mind for the lead role. She probably had some inkling at the time that the latest in a long line of enviable leading men would be Lee Byung-hun. Set in the early 1900s, "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.
