Min Hyo-rin now up for Full House 2

Looks like Full House 2 is going ahead with recasting, rather than working out conflicts with previously cast leads Noh Min-woo and Hwang Jung-eum. Now Min Hyo-rin (Sunny, Romance Town) is a leading contender for the female lead, according to reps who confirmed that she received the offer and is considering it.

Also, we finally get the teeniest detail about the plot of the sequel: Full House 2 follows the romance between a poor but plucky aspiring reporter and a top star, who get caught up in a fake engagement. So, pretty much a copy of the original, where Song Hye-gyo was an aspiring internet novelist/screenwriter, and Rain a top star, and the two actually got contract-hitched in a supposed marriage of convenience that really wasn’t all that convenient.

Although, I’ll be impressed if they reverse the roles this time and make the hero the poor, plucky writer and the heroine the top star. Why do I have the feeling that’s not gonna happen?

Plot unoriginality aside, I actually think this could be a good move for Min Hyo-rin, who’s been climbing in visibility as an actress. For a long while she was pretty much a CF and photo-shoot fixture without making much headway in her singing career; she’s still got ad contracts everywhere, but now her career’s really picking up as well. She scored with the hit movie Sunny, as well as a second-lead role in Romance Town. (Her debut drama, Triple, wasn’t much of a success although I still think it helped her more than not, since she had nothing to lose.)

Interesting that Full House 2 is already scheduled to air in Japan on channel TBS next March, while it still lacks a timeslot in Korea.

With all the news coming up, cancellation, and whatever, I'm really confused if this project will really happen or what. I wish it will materialize for real this time. I kinda like Min Hyo Rin so I'm okay with her taking the lead role.

But yea, I wish they'll think of a different plot... They can still have that cohabiting theme then just make the conflicts different.

I too wish they'd do something different with the story. It's hard to step into the shoes of rain. If its just the same drama, why wouldn't i just watch the original with rain?

Amen to that. If they will follow the exact same pattern of the story, no one will enjoy it since they'll just compare it to the past story, the past characters and where's the fun? Everyone knows the story very well.

Poor and rich love story and mocking the gal at first then making up with her or vice versa yada yada... What is so good about this drama? Aside from the fact that it is a sequel, an idol lead will make this ecen worse! Why create an article to a useless drama? Hahaha

Spot on!!! i can actually seee that shaping out superb! :) park ki woong can totally carry off the 'nerdy cute with hottie inside shirt' vibe very well, and min hyo rin can totally be the sexy on the outside but vulnerable yet strong inside type pretty well too, i think...

If it has exactly the same storyline as the first, what is the point of making a second one? This happened with Hangover 2 and to say the least it was really disappointing. I hope they change it up or else they can count me out as a viewer.

The only way I'd ever watch Full House 2 is if they cast Min Hyo-rin!

Me too. My god, I love everything Min Hyo rin is in.
Although I hated Full house 1 and hate the concept of it, I would totally watch this for her. Its been a long time since she's been the leading lady<33

Pretty much my reaction. Now I have reason to watch it. I'm just hoping they don't cast an Idol for the male lead.

I can see her in this - she's young and cute, what's not to like?
A big star vs plucky, poor writer? That's the same plot as "Star's Lover" with CJW.

Also, a little OT, but asked on Open Thread if anyone had a source for "Sunny", released with eng. subs? It's like it vanished - can't find it anywhere.

asiatorrents.com has Sunny. I don't know if you're a member of this site already, but enrollment is currently by invite only and I don't have a spare invite at the moment. =(

Ah, thanks for mentioning that! I was the one who asked on the Open Thread. I'm still looking. Heh heh.

God, it took all my perfectionist tendencies to finish the original, don't know if I'd be able to manage that feat a second time.

Then again, depending who they cast for the male lead, my shallowness might pull me through... :P

why is it so hard to find an actress who can act in Song Hye Gyo's place? it's probably because she's irreplaceable.

lol no. but it's not like this drama is a remake of full house 1 (although it certainly seems it, doesnt it? haha) so they're not casting someone to "replace" SHK

0
reply

Required fields are marked *

I have a delightfully low opinion of SHG so I'm both ready and willing to disagree with you.

That being said, this probably won't be a straight remake, otherwise they'd bill it as such (I hope), and therefore there's no need for a replacement.

I love MHR, I think she'd be delightful in this (assuming her role is decent, ofc). And I really do hope they switch the roles and make her a top star, and whoever said Park Ki-woong needs to be the male lead is totally right. I'd watch that in a heartbeat.

Required fields are marked *

yes agree with you...MHR is pretty but I don't like her in Romance Town. I doubt she can act cute and funny like SHG in FH.

Doesn't anyone/anytwo felt that she looks like the second lead-Jo Yoon Hee? (Or the other way around)

With their similarity, this should be 'interesting'. I guess.. I hope..

I'm pleased! I much prefer her to Hwang Jung Eum, as unreasonably biased as I am towards HJE (I like her but i don't know why...) If she's the plucky reporter, I can see HJE being very annoying. Min Hyo Rin has a more natural presence, I think.

I love her. I also heard that they are considering BEAST (idol group) leader Doo-Joon for the lead role. He was in All My Love. Hmmm, if this rumors is true, i don't know how I feel about the cast. If only Song Joong Ki wasn't busy he would be perfect for the role.

Doo Joon was really good in All My Love. His character was my favorite. I thought he was really cute. He has another sitcom besides AML under his belt too.

I love Min Hyorin, so I'll definitely check it out if she's in it, but part of me feels like if something has this many obstacles continually popping up, it a sign it's just not meant to be. Why not let it go and come up with an original story? Sequels/spin-offs of high-grossing cash cows don't usually make much money anyway (see: ATHENA).

If it's not going to have any of the original characters from Full House why bother giving it a sequel? Forget about a Full House sequel and just let it stand on it's own. Doesn't sound good or interesting anyways.

I just heard about the rumors about Doojoon joining the drama, and this is all I can say about it:

This is Hallyuwood gone wrong.

Anyway. I love Full House so much, I can't even call it a guilty pleasure. Call me a loud and proud fan of Full House!

Yay for Min Hyorin! I really like what I've seen of her career so far.

Plot originality aside, I would probably watch this drama if Min Hyo-rin were the lead. She's just such an emotive actress, I can't help but root for her in anything she's in.

why are they doing the same story? that's stupid... this drama never needed a second season. The idea's just stupid. the only thing that would make me want to watch it, is if they switched the rules but then again, as javabeans said, i don't think that they'll do that sadly... this drama's probably not going to do that well imo...

Except they have SHG & Rain, better they don't make Full House 2. However, if they want still to continue it better they change the title.
