[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.

[MV & Album Review] MAMAMOO – ‘Purple’

3. LoveHate (Moon Byul solo)

MAMAMOO will have you seeing 'Purple' with their fifth mini-album. Five songs are here for your perusal, and you've already heard "Worthless" if you were at the 'Moosical (Curtain Call)' concert. The girls give you another album full of various musical stylings.

The EP kicks off energetically with "As For Me (Yes I Am)." It's these kinds of songs that I really like from MAMAMOO, because they not only rock, you also get more than just a sample of those amazing voices. Retro is okay, but if you can structure a song to show off their perfect pipes, that's even better. This is an awesome fusion of retro and modern, and I like it a lot.
