Here’s a peek at SBS’s upcoming Monday-Tuesday drama Warm Words, set to take over Suspicious Housekeeper’s timeslot in just a few weeks. The 20-episode melodrama is about two married couples and one affair that threatens to unravel both households. It’s purported to be Desperate Housewives-y, but the teaser seems just straight melo to me, not that the thirty-second teaser reveals much about the show other than the affair that will wring tears. It does start with an intriguing line: “I meet my husband’s lover every day…”
The drama comes from the writer of Can We Get Married and the PD of Five Fingers, and is about the two extended families that hang in the balance when a married man and woman start a dangerous love affair

Scandal also led the way for 10 PM dramas during the weekend with its strong story about revenge.
Another good thing that came to an end was Joo Won’s last appearance on KBS’ 1 Night, 2 Days. As the youngest, Joo Won has brought a lot of laughter in the past year and eight months.
The actor shed tears as he said good bye to the beloved show, which he left due to his busy acting schedules.
Super Junior′s Kyuhyun also left his MC position behind on KBS′ Mamma Mia as the program′s new broadcast schedule conflicted with another one of his programs

In the new drama, Lee Ji Ah will play Oh Eun Soo, a shopping host whose first marriage failed and who is in the middle of her second marriage. While lovable and cute, she plays a character that is very firm and confident in her decisions.
On that day of filming, the actress shot a scene where she is picking up her daughter from school. This is Lee Ji Ah’s first role as a mother since her debut, and despite it being her first time, she pulls it off well, with a naturally tender gaze and cheerful expression
After spending much time on land, the men of MBC’s Real Man headed off to sea, only to meet perhaps the harshest trainer from hell yet.
On Sunday night, the celebrity soldiers were visited by 2EYES, Park Eun Ji, and Jung Joo Yeon with picnic lunches. However, the members were dropped from cloud 9 as soon as they hit the naval base, where their trainer, perhaps the scariest they’ve ever encountered, was waiting for them.
The members were constantly yelled at by the trainer, even for the tiniest movement. And even during snack time, the trainer had all the soldiers wrapped around his pinky as he ordered them to eat their snacks in the most delicious manner.
The fierce training in the navy brought the series to the top of the variety show ranking with 18.1 percent on Sunday night.
