Hyun Bin and Yoon Sang-hyun play to type in Secret Garden

Hyun Bin as an urbane city professional and Yoon Sang-hyun as a playboy? Yup, talk about making full use of typecasting.

In Secret Garden, Hyun Bin once again adopts an aloof personality and sharp dressing style as the owner of a department store who possesses a “cold charisma.” He’ll body-swap with the female lead, a stuntwoman who is his polar opposite, and I presume that proves to be a humbling (and enlightening) experience.

On the other hand, Yoon Sang-hyun — who has made his name playing irresponsible playboys (as in Queen of Housewives and My Fair Lady) — shows more of that charm in playing a popular singer. His Oscar character was one of the leading figures in spreading Hallyu fervor overseas and commands an army of female fans — though how he manages THAT with such an unfortunate hairstyle is a mystery to me. Seriously, it’s like he’s shaped his head into a mushroom. Coupled with that floppy cardigan, can we say sexy?

Fantasy-romance drama Secret Garden also stars Ha Ji-won, Kim Sa-rang, and Philip Lee, and begins airing on November 13.

He'd be the ideal hippie singer for Mary Stayed Out All Night!!! XD Um, yeah, not a fan of the body-swap thingy, and not a fan of Hyun Bin either (I know I keep saying this XD), but I think Ha Ji-won and Kim Sa-rang are awesome, so let's see : )

IA.

I just gotta figure out to stop myself from thinking how weird to look down and see the body parts of the opposite gender as part of your own body.

But I guess in these dramas everything has to be thought of light and breezy and not into the deep details?

I shall watch only for Yoon Sang Hyun! >:o

omg is it me or is Binnie looking younger and much more awesome than he did in KSS? fangirly love is coming off towards binnie once again i say! and YSH was a playboy in my fair lady? i thought he was more of a straight laced butler in it? or maybe my memory fails me and honestly the only reason i even watched that atrocity was cos of YEH ( some for Jung il woo as well :P) hmmm maybe if they could a mid path between his present hair and his hair in MFL it would be jjang!

Hyun bin looks like he's lost some weight since I've last seen him. Yoon Sang Hyun on the other hand is totally not rocking the mushroom headstyle. I thought he was suppose to be a playboy, not an ahjusshi.

Yoon Sang Hyun - since I take his character as a meta-reference to Yonsama, I guess they are copying Yonsama's most recent hippie ahjusshi slighty fem look. Glad it's not just Yonsama, apparently this look does look shitty on any other guy.

Binnie - okay, my twinnie and everyone else is right, he looks just like Kang Kook in Ireland, and I'm back to fangirling skinny Binnie instead of trying to feed him 20 double-doubles.

As for people asking about YSH playing a playboy, it was in in Queen of Housewives. He did play a poor butler in My Fair Lady.

Twinnie,

If my get my hands on binnie, I have his whole wardrobe picked out, I want him in suits, D'Urban casual stuff r FINE, and I can mentally bodyswap binnie and Yutaka any moment I fancy the other a bit more. a coat or 2 in any of that hobo A&F overcompensating manliness w/ fake furry stuff...., or u know, naked (ok I'll give him his swimtrunks to keep this post PG)

O now YSH's get up is making perfect sense w/ the Yonsama reference! It's calculated we wont find it sexy, as long as Oscar's fictional fangirls r also referencing Yonsama's.

WTF? what is YSH's hair? I think they tried hard to make him weird.
for HB, it isn't necessary to say a word. he's just awesome and I really look forward to see the chemistry with HJW.
I'm a childish girl so I wish it would be a chance for HB to see he can have HJW instead of his current girlfriend which I've never liked their coupling!

It's strange, but I guess I have too much dosages of Kpop and Idol boys...because when I saw YSH's new hairstyle, it reminded me of Shinee's Onew! :D

So, this Oscar character...is he a former Idol singer? If yes, the hair and the cardigan are relevant.

Hmm, just when I thought Hyun Bin had started picking meaty roles.

Yoon Sanghyun seems to be desperate to getting back in the scene. Taebong was fun, but unless he really brings it this time, his 15 minute is over.

Oh Koreans and their misconception that long hair automatically means sexiness. Only Kim JaeWook can pull that sexy off.

This picture of Yoon Sang-hyun has me cracking up. I have no doubt he can do a playboy (though he came across sort of sleazy instead of smooth in My Fair Lady, imo) but he looks more like a hippie in these photos.

What's up w/ stylists these days?

HB's cut/style is OK, but hardly flattering and YSH's is simply awful.

Add to that the ridiculous, overly permed/poofy hairstyles of LSG in MGIAG and KHJ in PK, we are talking a fashion disaster.

As for Hyun bin, i saw and have always loved My lovely sam soon and i think he can act as well (referring to the break-up scene in MLSS). anyways, Ha ji won , love her to death as well but i can't imagine her with anyone but jo insung. awww.. i miss BALI :(

I thought that too, he looks very Kim Jae-wookish in the last picture.
I'm in the minority but I don't mind the cardigan too, makes him look kind of snuggly. Clever. So that's what they meant by playboy. A snuggle magnet. Erm.

Hyun-Bin is lookin hot. I love suits with vests. yum! I agree that he must have lost weight. His face looks slimmer. I also love body-swapping stories, especially when it involves cross-gender swapping (as opposed to mother-daughter body swaps) so I can't wait for this!

"I think we should expect higher lvl of fanservice fr Hyukie "

True, true. Given that the show is called Poseidon, he should come out of water in slow motion. In fact, there should be a love ballad specifically dedicated for the moments he comes out of the water.

Oh yeah, and they should cut to a scene with LDH shedding tears at this site, even if she is actually not part of the story.

Release the Kraken people. Release the Kraken.

Yeah, LDH cameo-ing in Runaway was pointless, LHD should only ever cameo in a Jang Hyuk drama.

She can perchance give him a rock. Or just cry a lot. Anything is fine, as long as she promptly collapses and needs saving.

Team MOB FTW. Counting down, 2 months until Lee. Ji. Ah. must die insanity begins.

You two sharpend your keyboard yet?

*LDH TEARS*
bumped off her pretty boulder by my keyboard thrown at screen.
Hyukie just done w/ the love ballad stripping and wiping down wet thighs w/ his vest fr Chuno/towel
in a slowmo split sec, it's then thrown at camera to tease fangirls after a Hyukie wink + smirk combo

*underwater*
mookie's damned keyboard strategically swerving in front of Hyukie's man bits. (my keyboard is a bad bad girl)
H scoops damsel up w/ his right hand, gives LDH air mouth to mouth (the gaseous exchange may not be healthy for LDH's health, w/ that fact clocking in she tears more.)

Keyboard will die a happy, dignified drowned death and deemed useless to Edge out LJA.

Do we still need the Kraken? My keyboard is ample size.

"Anything is fine, as long as she promptly collapses and needs saving."

Yes, because this leads to the director doing a slow-mo close-up of Jang Hyuk's eyes screaming "NOOOOOO!!!!" Asking why this always, always, always works is like asking why prime rib tastes better when he promises to clean the dishes. Or why Rain has chocolate abs, but Jang Hyuk's abs weap tears of blood. The sky is blue; enjoy the view.

"You two sharpend your keyboard yet?"

Just watch -- Lee Ji Ah is going to end up with both Cha Seung Won AND Jung Woo Sung AND probably have Kim Min Jong longing for her behind a computer desk.

Yoon Sang-hyun's hair *facepalm* what ever happen to short, neat haircuts?? YSH's hair looks like something out of the 90s. What's with asian actors/male characters getting hairstyles that you hardly ever see a normal asian person get. I mean for female characters, I have actually seen many korean girls who have hairstyles like the female characters in dramas.

I'm not too worried abt Hyun-Bin's typecasted character. I'm sure that after the body switch, he will be a completely different person. Hyun-Bin acting as a guy acting as a girl. good stuff.

Oooohhhh...... love, love YoonSanghyun !!!

He's totally 'it' here....especially the last pic. Like some one aptly said..... he looks like an older JaeWook. Not many guys could carry off this sort of hairstyle ( mushroom or not, heehee).

He looks exactly like what a kpop idol should be like..... so i guess his groomers are going strictly by the books. Luckily YSH has what it takes to take to carry it off.

Anyway, have to see the actual drama to bring in the final verdict.

Is it so bad that I adore YSH too? Glad to find a kindred spirit here. I like HB too, but after watching the flob that was Family Outing Season 2, I liked him more. It's just that he really sucked in FO2, in a cute "I pity him" way in which I wished people would stop picking on him. I even liked him throughout "Lady Castle/My Fair Lady", right from the beginning, never once jumping ship (which is rare since a lot of times I fall for the second lead.... not always, but often enough). And I totally fell for him in "Queen of Housewives".

Anyways, I look forward to the Body switching, mushroom hair and all.
