Full House 2 confirms Noh Min-woo, Hwang Jung-eum

And here I thought this casting rumor was all full of hot air. But as it turns out, Full House 2 is back in the works, and has confirmed its leads after dancing around the topic for ages. They’ll be played by two up-and-comers, Noh Min-woo (Midas, My Girlfriend Is a Gumiho) and Hwang Jung-eum (Can You Hear My Heart?, High Kick Through the Roof).

If you’re like me, you probably thought rumors of a Full House sequel would pop up every year from now to eternity without a drama ever actually materializing. After all, sequel rumors have been floating around practically since the original rom-com miniseries hit 40%+ ratings back in 2004 and made two superstars (Rain, Song Hye-gyo) even superer. And I recall last hearing news about a sequel three years ago, with nothing coming of it.

Even when the Noh-Hwang rumors started circulating recently, I wrote them off because they were followed by the usual flurry of denials from the actors. But with casting announced as official today, I guess this sucker may really happen after all.

In case you’re unfamiliar with the original series (who are you and where have you been for seven years?): Full House was one of the earlier examples of several plot devices that have since been used and abused by practically every single rom-com afterward. We had the movie-star hero, the gorgeous heroine who was called “ordinary” looking (pfft), the co-habitation setup, the landlord/maid scenario, the contract marriage, and the bickering-as-foreplay. There’s the hyung-as-Daddy-Long-Legs, too, and a first love who won’t go away. Rain played the movie star jerkwad (also former med school student and son of rich family, of course) who buys Song Hye-gyo’s house…which she’s swindled out of by her “friends,” who need the money and are somehow able to convey the deed. Left homeless, the heroine becomes maid to the new owner, then agrees to contract-marry him, and lots of fluffy cuteness (with the requisite head-scratching separation angst) ensues.

Since it’s unlikely that the so-called sequel will actually be a continuation of the original story, which already got its happy ending, it remains to be seen whether Full House 2 will just take the concept and refashion it into a new version of the same story. Or, you know, you could just slap the Full House 2 title onto any contract-cohabitation drama in the past seven years, since those have basically used all the same tricks.

Since both are from Mnet, I'm hoping Mnet/CCM doesn't throw T-ara members into this drama along with HJE and NMW. But I'm glad the drama is finally doing something. Full House was my first Kdrama so I've been waiting for a sequel for years now.

Idk. Out of all the idol companies, I have the most trust in Mnet/Ccm when it comes to producing decent actors. They pretty much marketed them as singers AND actors from the start, and some of them have been acting for longer then they've been singing.

T-ara have like 2 or 3 convenable actresses , EunJung & Jiyeon for me are the top Idol-actor in kpop tbqh lol
EunJung would have been a better choice for me as the lead female than HJE(I don't know ....but this girl , just makes me cringe >.<)

Every drama known has used a cheesy plot-device at least once. I can't say I hate it - I will still squee over a fake kiss, a drunken scene, the angry-kiss-to-end-an-argument... Ugh, I hate that I do but... because of that, I will HAVE to watch this. x___X

I've only been watching Kdramas for just over a year now. You're Beautiful was the first one I watched, Coffee Prince was second, and Full House was third. All the yelling and put-downs reeeeaaaaallly got on my nerves. The ending was a let down, especially after seeing the kissing scenes in CP. Yet somehow, someway, I came away liking the drama. Go figure. Or maybe it was just Rain's affect on my hormones.

So....guess I'm up for Full House 2! And it has absolutely nothing to do with No Min Woo. Nope, not a bit.

Somehow I am also considering of unfollowing JGS because he flood my Twitter page resulting to lag. haha.. but I like how he is answering to the tweets although he have not answered mine. LOL. God! he is really a social networking addict.

Re: No Min Woo - he tweets once in a while. post selcas once in a while also. for me he is just so adorable yet sometimes I find his feature to femme but I like how he acts and how he played those musical intruments. so I'm super IN for FH 2.. hehe

It was probably sexy Rain and the fact that it was one of your first dramas. It was one of my first dramas as well and I didn't think it was great, but I somehow still loved it and rewatch it from time to time.

Same here! I think it was the third kdrama I watched, when everything was still bright and new, and I loved it. The only thing that got on my nerves a bit was the repetition in the last eps, which seemed like a step backwards, relationship-wise... but other than that, I was game for pretty much everything, and loved it to bits. I knew it was not good in many ways, but I didn't care at all.

I'd be far more critical now - so in a way I'm glad I watched it back in the first flush of my infatuation with kdrama, when I could still appreciate it for the sweet fluffy no-substance fun it is. :-)

And YES, I am up for Full House 2 - especially with the pretty gumiho hunter! Maybe they'll switch the roles and he'll be the down-on-his-luck, but cute and cheerful loser who has to move in with the arrogant female chaebol.

Full House was my 25th kdrama. Why took me so long? Because spoilers are all around the Internet and I was sure it will be damn cheesy... However the execution was intriguing enough to make me want to see another episode of the cuteness... I just FF-ed the secondary girl... yup it wasn't for me! In fact it was the only flaw of FH

On the other hand I have the same feeling when I see Ham Eun-Jung(T-ara, CCM too) on my screen even though she is one of the few idols who can really act... I just hope they won't distribute her as second lead - it will be awkward to see the WGM wife of No Min Woo's ex-bandmate Lee JangWoo, being NMW's "first love"...ohh well!!!!

Hwang Jung Eum is a cutie pie and she has strong acting chops, while No Min Woo even though can act his guts, without proper directing from the PD he won't make an appealing character even though he looks so smashing sexy and cute and handsome and yummy ...ohh stop!!!In the same way were Rain's acting and looks when he was cast in Full House

Glad to see Noh Min Woo with a lead role. I like Ham Eun Jung so I wouldn't mind seeing her. I haven't seen too much of Hwang Jun Eum, so I don't have any comments on her really. Also, is it just me, because for some reason I keep mixing up NMW with McCreepy from City Hunter.

I actually never got past the first couple of minutes of Full House, distracted with it being so old, and the video quality so bad, but maybe I will attempt it again. Same issue with Coffee Prince. Why can't I get into the rom-com classics?

I saw Full House such a long time ago. It was like the starter of all rom-coms for me. I liked it, but I never felt like re-watching it.
Full House 2? I just hope they won't copy/paste the story, but I guess wouldn't notice that much, since I don't remeber everything very well. Long time ago, like I said.

Buuut, NMW is adorable & that is why I am watching this.
And maybe because I am curious about how this will turn out.

Gonna keep on checking for any updates ^^

The original Full House was a giant bleh for me. Partly because the writing fell off the deep end in the last few episodes but also because, I've never liked Rain or Song Hye-gyo as actors.

Not that No Min-woo or Hwang Jung-eum are spectacular actors in a technical sense, because they're not. But the former proved that he's got chops in Rockx3 and the latter has a lot of personal charm and an endearing sweetness.

I'd be tuning in either way though. I'm a glutton for romcom punishment.

Seriously? I wasn't impressed with NMW in MGIAG (because hello! LSG!!!) but liked him better in Rock, Rock, Rock. But Full House 2? Hmm....

Anyway, now I've become nostalgic and want to watch the original & listen to the OST. I've become a fan of Rain (and his singing & dancing) & SHG after watching them in it. I think FH is the only super fluffy rom-com I could stand to watch over and over. My friends love SHG's clothes, but I loved the different silver earrings that she wore in the drama.

I think No Min Woo's casting will work really well.. I'm curious to see him as a hot headed guy since he played the calm guy in Gumiho (the only series I saw him in).

I remember watching Full House in my early drama-watching days. I had streamed the videos from a website and the only way to watch it unpixelated was to leave the video at about 2 inches in height. I guess it's like watching a video on an old-fashioned dumbphone.

I had watched the entire thing without subtitles and got the gist of things from people's posts of summaries and translated of certain snippets.

It was really good at first, but towards the end, I had some trouble following why exactly they couldn't/wouldn't get together. The drama may not be the best, but it has one of the most memorable OSTs ever. It's like right up there with Winter Sonata in having a really recognizable OST.

Love Hwang Jung Eum since High Kick Through the Roof. She was the main attraction for me thorough that 126 eps sitcom. She helped made other characters shone, like Choi Daniel-Gi Kwang-Yoon Si Yoon.

What I like from her also is the drama choices she made after High Kick. Instead of go the route of trendy-drama romcom which usually more popular overseas, she went into unusual ones like "Giant" (epic-historical) and "Can You Hear My Heart" (family melodrama) where she acted and learned from big-fish senior actors/actresses.
