[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!

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.

Some travel agencies argued that what is happening in the southern island should not have an effect on the tourism sector as the major tourist destinations of Manila, Cebu, and Boracay are not located within the no-travel zone.

‘Produce 101’s Lim Young Min accused of cheating and breaking no spoiler rules

'Produce 101's Lim Young Min, who many fans turned back on because of alleged girlfriend issues, has been accused of cheating and spoiling results.

His brother told his friend to tell a KakaoTalk chatroom full of Lim Young Min fans that he wanted the songs "Never" and "Oh Little Girl", which is against the rules.
