[Orion's Drama News] Timeless Kitsch

Get your baggy jeans and hoop earrings ready, because "The Best Hit" is here to bring back everything we find embarrassing and sometimes secretly still love from the 90s. Today I take a look at this quirky upcoming title before sharing the usual collection of weekly news. I have also started two of my three new dramas for this exciting season!

Early drama concepts change a lot, but the result is sometimes very surprising. Until the first promotional material for "The Best Hit" appeared, I had dismissed it as just a typical youth drama. Enter time-traveling 90s idol and I am as confused as I am entertained. I am still not sure what to make of it and all I know is that there is also a romantic angle here, but I am intrigued enough. I am also not sure what the tornadoes in the posters mean, but they fit the oddity that is this show so far quite well.

Happy new month, everyone. I hope this drama season will provide a lot of promising shows to follow. Today I take a look at the persistently enigmatic "Woman of Dignity" and its new atmospheric videos. I also share the shiny new posters from "Secret Forest" as well as miscellaneous news.

"Woman of Dignity" has released its third and fourth teasers along with posters and I am beginning to wonder if I am viewing these through a Twilight Zone scenario. The series is still labeled a comedy and granted, Korean melodrama is sometimes so bad that is it funny, but there are no giggles here. Possible viewer baiting aside, the thriller this series does look like seems great. That being said, it is by the writer of "Strong Woman Do Bong-soon", so I will pass.

Dramaland has a lot to offer this summer in terms of variety and so none will go drama-hungry or, in the case of "Bride of the Water God 2017", drama-thirsty. Today I take a look at its promotional baby steps and briefly share other drama-related news for this week.

Upcoming fantasy drama "Bride of the Water God 2017" has begun promoting and it starts simple and pretty. Unfortunately, that is my characterization of its leads and since I do not enjoy this type of fantasy, I have not followed this closely. That being said, the PD and writer duo of Kim Byeong-soo and Jeong Yoon-jeong have worked on shows such as "Queen In-hyun's Man" and "Arang and the Magistrate". As far as capable hands go, this series is in good ones. You can read this piece comparing the drama to the original for more information and also see Sin Se-kyeong's new stills.

"Bride of the Water God 2017" really really wants to sell its main pairing and so the teasers keep piling up. We also have some new information about other characters this week as well as other news, especially a lot of casting and potential casting ones. Check them out in the latter half of this piece.

A godly boyfriend sounds nice, until you realize his powers can be easily replaced by an umbrella and the common sense to check the weather forecast. This is essentially teaser four for "Bride of the Water God 2017" and teaser five follows the same aesthetic. Divine boyfriend disappointments aside, we have new information on the leading lady as well as her love rival character. The series is also promoting its supporting cast, so you can have an idea of what everyone is about before it starts airing in a little over two weeks.

Keeping well hydrated is a necessity for those of us currently experiencing a very hot summer and Water Gods could surely help. Yes, it is I, the queen of bad excuses for why I am about to drown you in "Bride of the Water God 2017" news again. Fans, come right in. Non-fans, I do have more news for you.

Not even Gods can mess with fancy plumbing, but they do produce a really fun teaser while losing to it. Granted, it seems to have very little to do with the actual series, but I am easily entertained. The series is selling its OTP hard with stills and more stills while their poster is also available. You can find the rest of the character posters on our profile for the series. Two of said characters seem to like plotting over tea in these stills and we also have a glimpse at some of the supporting cast members.
