Zhang Han Yu clashes with Masaharu Fukuyama in John Woo’s Manhunt

Manhunt (追捕) is an upcoming thriller movie that is directed by John Woo as a way to commemorate late Japanese actor Ken Takakura, who starred in the original in 1976, which was also based on Japanese novel Kimi yo Fundo no Kawa o Watare by Juko Nishimura. The new remake follows the same story setup with Zhang Han Yu as a prosecutor who is framed for robbery and multiple murders and on the run. He’s chased by Japanese actor Masaharu Fukuyama, who plays a detective. Female cast includes Qi Wei and Korean actress Ha Ji Won. Plenty of reasons to catch this one!

The Time I’ve Loved You Round Table: Premiere Episodes

This post is two weeks overdue! A new kind of post that I’m experimenting with by inviting different bloggers to do a round table of a drama they are all familiar with/watching, and The Time I’ve Loved You, remake of Taiwanese hit drama In Time With You, seems like the best choice. For the first round table we have Keane and Hess from our own blog, Kat from Dramapot and misscupcakees from A Fairytale World. Join in the fun and let us know what you think. The plan is to have a round table at the mid-point of the drama and one for the finale.
