Choi Jin-hyuk, Lee Ji-hoon in upcoming drama

This summer’s tvN drama I Need Romance was the first time I found myself wanting to slap the lead actress for picking the wrong guy. I know the whole story about the second male syndrome, but couldn’t Choi Jin-hyuk beat the curse and get the girl? He was clearly the better choice! He was charismatic, adorable, successful with a hot bod to boot! But, alas, you can’t get around that darn curse.

To appease my anguish, Choi will be back on SBS’s upcoming daily drama My Daughter the Flower with Lee Ji-hoon, Jin Sae-yeon and Sohn Eun-suh. The drama is about the relationship between a mother and daughter, who share no blood relation. Jin Sae-yeon plays the daughter, whose name Kkot-nim (Flower) is a play on the drama title; she works at a rehab hospital.

Choi’s character is the marketing director of the country’s leading kitchen furniture company, who wears a cool mask and speaks little. Choi Jin-hyuk and Jin Sae-yeon actually acted together in It’s Okay, Daddy’s Girl, so maybe they’re already friendly.


Jin Sae-yeon

Ballad-singer-turned-actor Lee Ji-hoon (King Geunchogo, You’re My Destiny) completes the love triangle between Choi Jin-hyuk and Jin Sae-hyun, because what Korean drama would be complete without a love triangle or square? Lee plays an easygoing, handsome owner of a coffee house who falls for Kkot-nim.

Sohn Eun-seo (Flames of Desire) just scored a role in Jang Geun-seok’s upcoming Love Rain, and actually plans to film both dramas simultaneously. She plays Lee Ji-hoon’s younger sister in this drama (and participates in a love triangle with Jang Geun-seok and Yoon-ah in Love Rain).

The cast went on a group retreat on September 27 to pow-wow for their first day of shooting, which was on September 29th, to bond and build up teamwork before work began. My Daughter the Flower will premiere following the finale of daily drama While You Were Sleeping, on November 15.

I'm pretty sure Choi Jin-hyuk's abs deserve a post of their own. Or at least a comment:

He was the only "actor" actually acting in Daddy's Girl. Love him.

When you say "the only actor actually acting", you're not including Park In Hwan (the father), Moon Chae Won, Lee Hee Jin, and all the veteran actors, right? I liked their performances, and ended up enjoying It's Ok, Daddy's Girl. Choi Jin Hyuk is a good actor, but after seeing him on Strong Heart and how much he fan-girled for Yuri of SNSD, I can't see him as hot anymore. It was kind of weird.

"Sohn Eun-seo (Flames of Desire) just scored a role in Jang Geun-seok’s upcoming Love Rain, and actually plans to film both dramas simultaneously."

Is she crazy? I mean, sure, she's not exactly the main lead, but even as a "secondary" lead and a secondary-ish character (aka being "Character C's" younger sister), it's still going to be a lot of work and a lack of sleep/rest.

Hopefully filming won't be too harsh on her and she has some downtime.

As for the drama itself, it seems interesting. I think I'll add it to be my to-be-watched list.

Totally agree - really really wanted I Need Romance to end with him getting the girl!!! He completely sold the character - and his all-out grin didn't hurt either ;) .... but augh, a daily drama, what to do...

Wait, does While You Were Sleeping the drama have anything to do with While You Were Sleeping the movie? That would be amazing, because that movie is quite possibly my favorite romcom of all time.

I just pretended that the last episode was a really bad dream and in my little brain, she chose THAT GUY.

I mean, ser - ri - OUS -ly.

When does it make romcom plot sense to go back the cheater that you are comfortable with?

You go with the man who excites you, who changes your view on the world. The one whose abs life you touched in unexpected ways. You choose Choi Jin-hyuk!

Yeah, even when they tried to make us hate him with the random "change your name, age and nationality" request.
What was that all about ??

Great drama, despite that stupid ending

I expected the plucky female lead to convince his family that the request was unreasonable, and to accept her as is.

I expected him to eventually back her up. It could have been written that way, too

That reminded me of the Eugene movie, that one where she loses weight and is a princess?

Horrible movie, horrible choice.

Wow, am I ever glad I stopped watching INR. The ending in my head is much more satisfying. And full of abs. Also, life-changing views of the world, touching in unexpected ways (heh heh heh), yay, empowered women, etc, etc ...but mostly, abs.

He looks... like Lee Min Ho?

*Ahem* Maybe I just miss LMH right now.

Could go without the rich guy (again) and I think if it was a simple, normal guy supporting the girl, this drama would have drawn me in more. I think it shows the guy giving more moral support and effort compared to a rich dude who can easily give anything.

Scent of a Woman could have worked better if Lee wasn't rich. I know it added a reason why he lived without effort, but there were better ways to express that. And the cliches about the rich that occurred dragged the series down.

Agree on you comment.

I wonder? Will she feel like she is dying due to exhaustion doing 2 dramas at the same time.

For what they have said Love Rain wont be all film now, they will finish filming during spring 2012. And she isn't the main in either of those, so she might have some time.
And She won;t be the first one doing something like that. Of course they are usually more seasoned actors that do that.

YEEEEESSSSS! I'm so happy to hear about this casting. I adored CJH in I Need Romance, and was heartbroken when he didn't get the girl (though I understood why the girl chose not to give up her identity to marry him, I was still way upset when she got back together with her original boyfriend). I'm excited to see him back so soon and that I'll be rooting for the team that's going to win this time!

Ah.. I have to say Choi Jin Hyuk was one of the reasons I stuck with I Need Romance (him and the hot photographer who's name I never quite caught). Did he ever cry in a shower? Just wondering, its become of weakness of mine.

Hahaha, I totally never caught hot photographer's name either. Never was sure if that was intentional or if I was just spacing out in the face of his hotness too much to catch it...

You mean the photographer Joon Hee played by Do Si-Gang (or should it be Si-Kang?). He and Seo Yeon were the essence of that drama for me. I even went to such lengths to find out his name ;)

My thoughts exactly.

I'm sorry, I loved him in I Need Romance until near the end when he was agreeing to his family's wishes about having In-young go away to further educate herself, and then to hide who she was. At that point, when he was agreeing to it all, about hiding who she was and her background, I was done with him. The veil was lifted and the illusion with it. At that point all I could think was "WHHHHHHHHHHHHHY GORRAMMIT!?!?! Did you have to such a horrible flaw to you? Redeem yourself I say. REDEEM YOURSELF!!!" At that moment, I just wanted In-young to fall in love with someone else. Although I, personally, would never take back a cheater, Kim Sung-soo was able to redeem himself, at least in In-young's eyes and that was good enough for me. Although, she could've found someone else too if she wanted to.

Required fields are marked *

yeah. Totally agree with you! That was his biggest flaw and one that is not easily excusable. How can he be so selfish to want her to change her identity, just to be with him. And I was glad she didn't agree to it.. Or else, I'll be pulling out all my hairs!! But goodness, I was drooling over him.. i mean, how could you resist that body?! hehe

0
reply

Required fields are marked *

Agree. But his actions toward the end felt so inorganic as if they were tacked on just to make the audience view the cheater in a more favorable light in comparison. I think a better ending would be if she didn't end up with EITHER guy. What happened to finding herself/not changing herself for a man? Who says you need a man to be complete?

Dude..I love this man. One of the reasons I loved I Need Romance so much was definitely because of him..but...I was fine that the lead in that drama went back to her ex?

Nobody throw rocks at me DDD: !!
I just thought it was one of those dramas depicting those relationships where you just love someone despite all the s**t they've done, and that person who realizes how much they love someone just a tid bit too late.
