Jang Geun-seok plays another musician in new drama

This information had come out earlier as a possibility, but now it’s confirmed: Jang Geun-seok will be returning to television in the KBS miniseries Mary Stayed Out All Night, which is based on a manhwa that was written by the same creator of the Full House manhwa.

Although the character was originally described as the vocalist of a death metal band, now he’s been tweaked to be a free-spirited hippie who’s the lead vocalist of an indie band. His rival in the love triangle is his complete opposite: a perfect type of guy with a good background and prestigious education. For 100 days, Mary will have an “imaginary marriage” (as in simulated) with both guys; the exact circumstances remain unclear but it intrigues me.

Jang Geun-seok said, “Because Mary Stayed Out All Night is about music, I felt more burden in choosing it. I thought that I might be fixing my image with musician roles. [But] I read the synopsis and script and found it so fun that I was strongly drawn to it. In particular, I grew more and more attached to the character of Mu-gyul, who lives a bohemian lifestyle. Living a non-mainstream life, he has pain from his childhood that he tries not to show on the outside, and I found him very human and appealing.”

For the lead role of Mary, rumors popped up recently that Moon Geun-young was considering it, but no decisions have been made. It would be lovely to see her in a romantic comedy, though.

Writing the drama will be Goong and Love & Marriage‘s In Eun-ah, while directing is Hong Seok-gu of last year’s lauded short drama Kyung-sook, Kyung-sook’s Father as well as the inaugural Drama Special episode, Red Candy.

Mary Stayed Out All Night is planning for a November premiere.

What a coincidence. I was just watching YB (and reading you're old recaps) when this news comes up. Is this a sign I should be checking this actor out more? Hmmm.....

I heard MGY is hesitating because she is participating in the Closer musical until mid-October so she is unsure if she will have the time since filming for the Mary series would start in October. I hope she does it because these two are quite talented actors with the ability to do both comedy and drama equally rather than specializing in just one. Also I find these two to be some of the most if not the most talented actors in their generation so as long as there is chemistry I think they would be magnetic and a joy to watch on screen.

Oooooohhhh I'm excited <3 JGS in another romcom <3 and the manga is by the creator of full house. I also love scripts written by In Eun-ah, so i'm definitely looking forward to this one! Wonder who's going to be the main actress? It would be cool to see Moon Geunyoung in a romcom too!

Park Bo Young would be a perfect fit in this role. And in fact . . .

"His rival in the love triangle is his complete opposite: a perfect type of guy with a good background and prestigious education."

Throw in Lee Min Ho as a love rival, and we'd have the Holy Speed Metal Scandal Trinity.

It sounds like a perfect casting. But it's hard to get a show where there are two leads with same airtime. There will definitely need to be someone who is a second lead actor....

From Do-re-mi to Anjell to Napalm Death to Nell . . . Hyun-nim!!! Jang Geun Suk is having Kim Hee Chul's dream career.

awwww man come on....a musician again!!...o well if the character is significantly different i'll watch anyways.....also it would have been cooler to have been a death metal musician bt i'll go with hippie too...anything for u JGS....also since he seems to think its an awsome story to take a risk like this it must be good....i trust his decisions
On an entirely different note if Moon Geun Young signs up here..I will DIE from happiness....ok i gotta calm down...bt seriously hw awsome would that pair be?
also i like the chosen director and writer team...looking forward to this

GEUN-GEUN couple!!!!!!!

OH. MY. GOD. To all the shippers of this couple in soompi, we may have strike a gold mine!

I would love to watch MGY do another rom-com, since it has been a while since she was in one.. I think it was her film My Litte Bride was the last straight rom-com she did.

I am now praying to the drama gods and to all that has higher power, be it human or supernatural, for this casting news to be true!

OMG, totally made my day! I love what he said about his role and the main storyline. You're right; it's so intriguing. I'm so gonna watch this (not that it's ever in question... :P)

If the female lead is Moon Geun Young, it would be a dream comes true for me. I've been yearning to see them together in a screen. The acting battle would be awesome to see... and I'm looking forward to seeing their chemistry together.

Thanks for posting this up, JB... ^o^

MGY would be awesome, but I'm more excited for the indie music! Yay! (it seems my prayer from the last post has been answered :D) Not too keen on JGS as a musician again, but if it's indie music, I could be down.

Really, really hope that MGY will be able to take on this role. I actually haven't seen her in anything besides Cinderella's Sister, but I'd like to see her do something a little more light-hearted and I think seeing her with JGS would be awesome. The plot's still a little "ehh" for me, but it could be fun.

When you say "miniseries" does that mean there will be fewer episodes compared to the usual 16-20?

i would have preferred the death metal thing. this indie singer thing makes me kinda... idk. indie music does not equal hippies ): /butthurt

I was thinking the same thing regarding the "hippie" and "indie band" descriptors. Hopefully the "hippie" part just means "yeah he's a free-spirit" and not that we'll have to suffer from some atrocity of jam-band music or style.

I agree. Metal music sounded fun, but I hope they don't give us jam band music with this. Just leave the music out if you're going to.

Jang Geun Seok will look super cutie in indie-rock-bohemian-hippie fashion, and he's a perfect match for this role...I remember his mean vocals and guitar playing in The Happy Life...I wish Moon Geun Young will realize that Mary is a complex character she was meant to play (yea really).
