Cha In-pyo added to the cast of Daemul

Veteran drama actor (and ’90s hottie) Cha In-pyo (Reputable Family) is jumping onboard the Daemul train, joining stars Go Hyun-jung and Kwon Sang-woo in the much-buzzed-about production.

Cha will play a political rival to Go Hyun-jung’s character Seo Hye-rim. As a former human rights lawyer, he runs for office against her but loses, and she is elected the nation’s first female president. Kwon plays Ha Ryu, a high-class gigolo. (Ah, well if he’s high-class…)

Cha’s character is also a member of a top chaebol family that with a strong presence in the political world. Not only is he Seo Hye-rim’s political rival, his relationship with her is also complicated by love and conspiracy.

Directing Daemul is Oh Jong-rok, who by the way is not the original director from the drama’s first attempt at production. Oh also directed Piano and Style (and I have to remind myself that the reason Style ranks on my unwatchable list wasn’t because of the directing, but rather the awkward writing and acting).

The drama premieres in early October.

Oh! I like Cha In Pyo...( wayyyyy better than KSW :D )
I think he suits as a lawyer. Actually the drama's premise is interesting, but somehow KSW kills it a little for me. But with CIP, I think I'm gonna watch it..

Talented and gorgeous to boot heh.

I finished watching "The Reputable Family" about a month ago and I recommend it. It's a 16 ep sageuk that charters one of Korea's leading families and their noblesse-oblige and desire to help their fellow Koreans. Whilst it does have its political intrigues, the drama is more about Cha In Pyo's development as a compassionate noble, succeeding in the face of danger and how the rules set down by him have influenced his family down the centuries.

On-topic, looking forward to this drama. It's a solid, skilful cast with eye-candy for everyone heh.

OMG! (MY) Cha In Pyo will act in this drama? I will have to watch it for sure.

Cha In Pyo is my forever favorite. I love him much more than Jang Dong Gun, Won Bin, Bae Yong Joon or KSW. If there's a Korean man that I want to get married to, that person would be Cha In Pyo.

And I would love to see Cha In Pyo & Go Hyun-jung end up together. :D

'political rival', 'relationship complicated by love and conspiracy', 'member of top chaebol family with strong presence in the political world', 'runs aginst her but loss' and my favorite 'former human rights lawyer' (I love me some former human rights lawyer...think Mark 'top human rights lawyer' Darcy!). Yes am definately onboard this drama especially with two mature and solid actors (CIP and GHJ). Is Cha the male lead? I hope so.

But KSW's high class gigolo.... huh ( have never been impress with his acting)...whatever... as long as he doesn't end up with GHJ!

I guess politics and sex goes hand in hand!!
