Shin Dong-wook joins Pick the Stars

Finally, Shin Dong-wook returns in another drama role. He’s just been tapped to join the SBS weekend series Pick the Stars [별을 따다줘], which has already cast leads Kim Ji-hoon as a rich lawyer and Choi Jung-won as a woman who has to fend for herself after her parents die.

It’s been a long while since he was on television: I loved him in 2006’s Soulmate and was eager to see him keep working, but after 2006’s Cloud Stairs and 2007’s War of Money, he hasn’t been very active, aside from hosting cable variety program Tracking Your Ex-boyfriend.

In Pick the Stars, Shin Dong-wook will play Kim Ji-hoon’s brother as a man with painful memories of his youth. He’s described as “warm and perfect, but also with a timid and innocent side to his character.” That’ll contrast pretty strongly with the smooth player he played in Soulmate and the private loan shark he portrayed in War of Money, as well as Kim Ji-hoon’s character, who is described as a cold man who doesn’t believe in love.

The drama will replace Angel’s Temptation in January.

Yeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeees!!!! This just made my day ... well, the end of it. As you very well said, I totally LOVED him in Soulmates, he was just perfect there. And it was soooo disappointing not seeing him for such a long time after that. I will definitly be watching the drama then, since Hi-Joon is another hottie in my radar, fuufufu fantastic news XDDD

Darn it. I would have loved to see him in a lead role. I'm wierd like that, but I detest seeing my favorite actors in secondlead roles - case in point: I refuse to watch My Girl due to my unfailing love for Lee Jun Ki.

Also haven't seen War of Money for the same reason. Though it's tempting. I've seen screenshots, and he's looked absolutely delish. *Ponders thought*

I was looking forward to Pick the Stars when I heard that Kim JiHoon was leading it, but now I'm psyched for it! I recently watched Soulmate marathon style in two days at your suggestion and LOVED it. I thought Shin DongWook was charming and perfect in his role, and I'm so excited to see him in something else. Thanks for the great news, Javabeans! :)

Kim Ji Hoon and Shin Dong Wook?!? Together in a drama?!? OMG!!! These 2 are on my MINE list (Gong Yoo, of course, is still on a pedestal). 2010 is gonna be a good year; I can tell. :)

No, seriously... rambling aside. I am completely excited about the prospect of seeing SDW on the (computer) screen again. This show will have my two fav. flower boys on screen. I don't care if it's horrible.. I am going to definitely watch it!!!

@2, I know you said Kim Bum (of Boys Over Flowers fame), but at first I read Ki Bum (of Super Junior fame), and I think Shin Dong Wook and Ki Bum are actually cousins in real life. Talk about lots of celeb look-alikes!

he always takes different roles for his drama and I think it's a good one,
I will always remember him in Soulmate (which always be my top drama)...what a great character
and I hate him to death when he was in War Of Money
It's been 2 years... good luck

Oh wow, I totally was wonder what he has been up to! I think the last news I saw on him was something about a magic show or something.. haha!
Choi JungWon is cute too!

..hmm the only thing I am confused about is that this will be a weekend drama but it's replacing Angel's Temptation? If I am not mistaken AT is a Mon/Tues drama...

Ooh, How fantastic!!

Ahh, that's right! (( I agree with #10 "great idea" )) I knew that Shin Dong-Wook and Ki Bum (Super Junior) are both COUSINS in their real-life, yupz. I just found out in the Internet about them ---> (probably in Hancinema.net, I guess so.)

I am very excited that I will be watching this incoming 2010 drama with Shin Dong-Wook (Soulmate) and Kim Ji Hoon (Love Couple), yay!

** I am glad that Shin-Dong-Wook is finally back! ** (winks!)

Finally. I just saw Soulmate again this weekend, and he made me smiling like an idiot for the whole day yesterday. And I will admit, I really do love this guy seeing him in that drama. Not much of a Kim Ji Hoon fan (I actually just googled him because I don't know him, but please don't kill me), so I'll say that I might watch this because of Dong Wook. IF the story is good, that is. Thank you for this article.

Oh maaaaaaaaaannnnnnnnnnnnnn I've missed him! ♥

The story doesn't really appeal (it seems like it'll be a little cliche and a lot melodramatic), but I'll tune in just to see SDW again. :D

Now I want to rewatch Soulmate. Curse yooooooouuuuuuu~

Thrilled to see Shin Dong-wook in a drama again - like so many, I loved him in Soulmate, but...

Bummed to realize he will be the second lead, which in kdramaland means he is doomed to some sort of unrequited love. Probably no fun, most likely no kisses. Dang.

Not really interested in the plot line...but if Shin Dong-wook's in it then I'll have to give it try. I'm also thrilled to see him a drama again!

I love Shin Dong Wook in Cloud Stairs And Soulmate now i also like Kim Ji Hoon.Has Shin Dong Wook done his military service yet if so what year i know there is a gap of two years in his profile . Did Kim Ji Hoon do his military service too? I love Pick the Stars/Stars Falling From The Sky. the child actors are deserving of award,As is the whole cast is great deserving of an award .

I loved him Soulmate. After Cloud Stairs i desperately wanted to see him in another lead role. I know he'll probably have a lead role sometimes again in the future if it comes up but for now I am content to see him on the big screen again! He's my favorite korean actor right now lol ... I can't help but look at him more although he's only a secondary character in Pick the Stars.
