@willenette, thank you for the updates! :)

I have not seen their movie "Love Again."  Have you? I am finding it is on Viki.

Kim Hyun-sook Takes Pictures With Kwon Sang-woo

Kim Hyun-sook revealed a warm photo with Kwon Sang-woo.

Kim Hyun-sook posted on her Instagram on the 6th, "It's been a while since Sang-woo and I were on set early in the morning. It's already my fourth work with you. My oppa looks younger and cooler in person, but strangely, both of our mouths are smiling and our eyes look so tired. I'm fine on the outside, but I'm getting old on the inside", she posted proof shots with the caption.

In the photo, she is smiling affectionately, arm in arm with Kwon Sang-woo, wearing a black suit. Kim Hyun-sook has a bright expression in a pastel-toned suit, but Kwon Sang-woo is somewhat droopy, contrasting each other. Nevertheless, Kim Hyun-sook cheered bravely, saying, "Let's continue to work together".

Netizens say, "It's an unexpected combination", "I heard Kwon Sang-woo and Son Tae-young came back home, but they're busy", "They're both so cool and pretty", and "You must be doing a work together", I wish you a great success", and more.



@irilight  thanks for sharing this. Like you, I also haven't seen this movie but, I know it was on Viki then. Here's the poster for "Critical X".  This drama will be shown through Wavve on September 2.  :loveu:

[Crisis X] It's done... it's done! It was X! Kwon Sang-woo in crisis is coming! | 1st Trailer | wave original



‘X In Crisis’: Kwon Sang-woo, Sung Dong-il star in hilarious new trailer


The new Korean comedy lands on Wavve next month

kwon sang-woo x in crisis trailer wavve k-drama


South Korean streaming platform Wavve has released the first trailer for its upcoming comedy series, X In Crisis (a literal translation of its Korean title).

X In Crisis begins streaming from September 2 onwards on Wavve. A new preview, shared on August 5, gives the first glimpse into the hilarious comedy of the series. The clip begins with the eccentric Yoon Bo-woo (Why Her?‘s Kwon Sang-woo), a regular 9-to-5 office worker who underestimates the precariousness of stock investments and ends up losing ₩30billion.

It transitions into a montage that shows how his life has gone downhill since, from facing a dismissal from his company to suffering from immense hair loss.


X In Crisis is based on the South Korean novel It Hurts Because I’m A Middle Aged Man (literal translation), and follows Bo-woo’s unfortunate circumstances as he faces all kinds of catastrophes including stock crashes, housing price surges and unemployment, all while trying to hold out for better days.

Aside from Kwon, veteran actor Sung Dong-il (Jirisan, Hospital Playlist) stars as neighbourhood physician Heo Joon, a confidante and doctor to Bo-woo. Im Se-mi (True Beauty) plays Ah Nae, Bo-woo’s wife who dreams of becoming a popular web novelist.

X In Crisis is also helmed by The Pirates: Goblin Flag and The Accidental Detective director Kim Jung-joon, and penned by writer Kwak Kyung-yoon, previously known for their work on dramas such as Love Revolution and Big Forest.

In other Korean entertainment news, ongoing fantasy K-drama Alchemy Of Souls will not drop new episodes on August 13 and 14 as previously scheduled, in order to “enhance the level of completion for the second half [of the series]”. Instead, two separate specials for the series will be aired during the show’s usual timeslot.





Sung Dong Il Uses Harsh Truths To Uplift Kwon Sang Woo In Upcoming Comedy Drama

Aug 16, 2022
by S. Cho


“X of Crisis” (literal title) has shared new stills of Sung Dong Il and Kwon Sang Woo!

Based on a book titled “It Hurts Because I’m a Middle-Aged Man” (literal title), wavve’s upcoming original drama “X of Crisis” is a cataclysmic comedy about the unfortunate life of “Mr. a.” While holding out for life to improve, he faces a combination of stock crashes, housing price surges, and the danger of resignation all at once. Although he took pride in succeeding in life, he takes a direct hit from the passage of time and heads downhill in life.

Kwon Sang Woo will be playing the role of the ordinary middle-aged man Mr. a, who thought his life was going places only to find out that it’s already in the stages of declining. Mr. a graduated from a prestigious university and entered a large company, but he goes from riches to rags after experiencing the ups and downs of the passage of time.

Sung Dong Il will be starring as Heo Joon, the neighborhood doctor. He always bickers with his patients with his nonchalant and tired attitude, but he is more caring than anyone else. Although he makes Mr. a flustered with his painfully honest words, he doesn’t hold back in giving advice that resonates with the heart.

The newly released stills capture Mr. a with his “life mentor” Heo Joon. As Kwon Sang Woo and Sung Dong Il previously starred together in “The Accidental Detective” series, viewers can look forward to seeing their new and improved synergy. As both actors are no stranger to the comedy genre, they will definitely showcase a funny and exciting relationship.

Right when Mr. a is confident that he’s living a successful life, he actually starts falling downhill in life and meets his life mentor Heo Joon, who only offers him harsh truths. While Mr. a has fallen into a deep slump, the happy Heo Joon appears in his life to offer refuge and a new outlook on life.

Whenever Mr. a endures hardship, Heo Joon is always right by his side. Somehow, the two end up as “check up buddies,” finding themselves in matching hospital gowns as they wait for their health check ups. Mr. a looks sad and limp but Heo Joon stays firm and looks at him with a piercing gaze, as if ready to call him out.

Heo Joon is clearly a man of many surprises, as he also meets up with Mr. a wearing an unlikely outfit with sunglasses and a stylish leather jacket. Viewers can look forward to seeing how Heo Joon uses his supercar as an unusual method to help cheer Mr. a up.

Regarding the outwardly cold and harsh but inwardly warm and caring Heo Joon, Sung Dong Il commented, “Heo Joon is like your neighborhood hyung as well as a friend. [The drama] includes small stories that could happen around us with our neighbors, younger siblings, fathers, and uncles. It’s a drama you can enjoy without burden.”

The actors spoke about their synergy with Kwon Sang Woo sharing, “Sung Dong Il is a hyung that’s like family and my soul’s partner. I’m so glad we are able to work on this project together.” Sung Dong Il added, “Kwon Sang Woo is like a neighborhood friend and we have a comfortable relationship. I think our synergy comes out when we say our lines back and forth.”

“X of Crisis” will premiere on September 2.

*** I watched "The Pirates" and seriously, silliness and action in abundance if that's what lights your fire.The plot was silly rather than funny. I have a lot of problems with this movie.Truly speaking, I'm just sick of treasure movies as they all are same. But, since this is KHN & KSW’s starring, I watched this movie for both of them. The genre is not my cup of tea. Not recommended, but not dismissed either. The story is so messy. You could tell they threw a lot of money into making this film and had decent talent, but in the end it fell flat.The editing was a mess, bit characters randomly show up, no connection between scenes, enemy backstory that you couldn't tell was past or present and would cut in abruptly.  :heart:
