Kim Jae-wook joins Mary Stayed Out All Night

…which will now be known as The Greatest Trendy Drama Casting EVAR. Okay, maybe just this year. But oh, happy day!

Jang Geun-seok AND Moon Geun-young AND Kim Jae-wook, together in a love triangle?? Where are you, November?

Mary Stayed Out All Night is the manhwa-adapted KBS drama that gets the heroine tangled up in not one but TWO contract marriages. Writing is In Eun-ah (Goong); directing is Hong Seok-gu (Kyung-sook, Kyung-sook’s Father).

Kim’s Jung-in character is a “perfect” guy with the kdrama triple threat of brains, beauty, and money, with whom Mary has been betrothed since childhood. Complications arise when she meets Mu-gyul, Jang Geun-seok’s free-spirited hippie/indie rock singer character. Yes, Kim is technically the second lead, but I’m expecting this to be an epic love triangle — at least I hope so. (The best love triangles are the ones that give me the most trouble deciding who to root for, because I like that angst to be as organic as possible.)

Kim Jae-wook made an impression with his pretty face in 2007’s Coffee Prince as “Waffle Sun-ki,” but has been, in my mind, just another beautiful celeb who had yet to prove any acting talent. That was until he took on the nuanced, volatile, and vulnerable character of the damaged chaebol in this year’s Bad Guy, and knocked that role out of the park. I was thrilled to see him break out and show real charisma and acting talent, which may have not been polished but was all the more compelling for its raw intensity.

I can’t WAIT to see this drama now!

Mary Stayed Out All Night airs in KBS’s Monday-Tuesday slot following Sungkyunkwan Scandal, and premieres November 8.

This is AWESOME. Kim Jae Wook seems to have a pretty good acting range, so I'm hoping he'll have the chance to show off some of his comedic and emotional acting skills.
November is two months away. Let the countdown begin!

Like many. Me too. I mean, Keun Suk used to look good and all, but Jae Wook is just so dashing on-screen and off.

Plus, the guy is proving to be a very talented actor. I will have to watch Bad Guy eventually. I hate most things about it, but for his sake, I should.

kyaaa!!! kyaaa!!! Oh boy Santa came early for Christmas!! i can't help but go berserk for a while, but this is the perfect hairstyle for you, boy! Sexy emo asymmetrical fringe! they make your girlish tendrils bearable to my blessed pair of eyes. Hmm, I'm reminded of your post about Candy men and one comment about them transforming into sexy beasts of the future. Are we witnessing one right now..?

Jang Geun-seok, up your game! Moon Geun-young, such a lucky girl... from snogging Eom Ki-joon onstage to this!!

Oh god, the same writer from Goong is attached to this? Arrrgh why??? I pulled my hair so much from frustration when I watched Goong since it ended up snowballing into a hot mess (which I attribute a lot to the crappy writing). I really really really hope she doesn't screw up this drama >_<#

I also hope that. I didn't like Goong as a series at all. Found most parts boring (I signed up for a romantic series, not a political drama) and the characters didn't draw me at all either.

Hope the writer can make this more exciting, romantic and less of a mess than that. Good cast so it would be a shame to waste it.

The "hot mess" probably had less to do with the drama writer but more on the original storyline that it was based on. (The manhwa is more complicated and full of overly dramatic angst by far in comparison to the drama, imo, so I didn't think it was that bad.)

The manhwa (original) was complicated to so many degrees towards it's end... and as Goong was still airing while the manhwa wasn't finished, I'm sure the writer tried to pull things together and wrap as much as possible.

I think the writer is pretty skilled, and even though this is also based after a manhwa, hopefully this will be good :D

Oh My God. Oh My God.

Dream casting much?! How rare is it that all 3 cast actors can actually ACT? Jang Geun Seok is awesomepants, and what else could be said about the beautiful and talented Moon Geun Young (though maybe wondering how she's still going to study while acting...). And now, the gorgeous (and talented!) Kim Jae Wook?

November, I normally hate you, but this year, you are awesome!

Yay for Kim Jae-wook getting another drama so soon, but boo, he's the second lead. I guess I'll have to see how the characters play out before I decide who to root for. Come on November!

(Sorry, not my usual response, but necessary under the circumstances!! Could MSOAN get any hotter??)

Maybe I should just start calling it MOANS, for that is surely what we'll be doing, MOANS of delight, over and over!

hehe,actually, the "Moon(y)" continues since the lead actress is no other than Moon Geun Young...(though someone in earlier DB's post called it the "Geun & Geun" combo)
