Noh Min-woo to headline Vampire Idol?

Okay, forget the Full House remake/sequel/rehash. Been there, done that. Let’s get Noh Min-woo onboard with this. Upcoming MBN sitcom Vampire Idol is reportedly wooing Noh to play the undead pretty boy who travels to Earth (because apparently he’s an alien AND a vampire) to fulfill his dreams of becoming an idol star. God, I love this premise. It’s So. Awesome. How perfect would it be to have him represent the prettiest of all pretty boys — the kind that doesn’t age?

The 120-episode daily sitcom is about a vampire prince who travels from a vampire star and ends up… in a Korean high school? What are the odds? So anyway, Prince Vampire has to navigate the shark-infested waters of mundane adolescence, all in order to fulfill his lifelong dream of fame and glory. I love that even undead alien royalty wants to be an idol star. Noh Min-woo reportedly loves vampire movies and has always wanted to play one, so perhaps this is his chance. I’m certainly looking forward to the prospect, not so much for the vampire-ness as the comedy, because I think he’ll be surprisingly good at funny.

The sitcom has also scored comedian Shin Dong-yup and veteran actress Kim Sumi (who interestingly enough starred in the sitcom Hello Franceska Season 3, also a vampire comedy). But the most interesting part is that they’ll be playing a married couple. The pair has a 19-year age gap, but that’s the point of the casting — Shin will be playing a vampire who never ages, while the love of his life is a human who ages as normal.

Okay, everyone with me now: AAAAAWWWWWWWWW! How cute are they? So he’s technically much older than her, probably by hundreds of years, but he looks like her son! That’s so tragic and cute at the same time. It’s the other half of all the teenage vampire fiction — the B-side of what actually happens when you marry that hot vampire who never grows old. I’m suddenly much more interested in the parents now. I guess they’re not going to be the lead’s parents though, unless he’s half-human. Ooh, wouldn’t THAT be a great storyline too? Now I’m getting all sorts of ideas.

Vampire Idol is still casting and plans to premiere in December on cable network MBN. Can’t wait.

This drama has Noh Min Woo written all over it. He already looks the part and has the whole band/idol history behind him.

And Shin Dong Yup and Kim Sumi! Now that's an awesome storyline for the two.

Can't wait!!! I hope Noh Min woo gets casted.

they have crazy story, a prince vampire-who-came-from-another-planet-who-wants-to-be-an-idol-and-also-a-higschool-student. and how about we add some more, he will play a highschooler who also solve mysteries, fell in love with a normal ordinary girl in town and turn the girl into a vampire herself so they can live happy ever after. kekkekeke no offense , i love no min woo, but whats with the crazy premise. vampire stories seems to be everywhere lately. did you smell "twilight" syndrome. ??

That's the first thing that came in my mind after reading the plot:D KA was a nice drama but also so sad T.T I hope this one will have a happy ending:D kekeke. But KA was from earth, my country, Romania :))) NMW's drama will be more interesting because he's not only a wampire but an alien too:D AMAZIIING!!! can't wait for december to come^o^

Romania? Hi neighbor (Im in the county next to yours ;) ). I didnt watch past ep. 1, so i just remembered that he came from...somewhere. But this plot just reminded me of it.

Yes, it does read like Village of the Damned meets 3rd Rock from the Sun who hooks up with Twilight on the way to Saved by the Bell.

A daily is not in my making but it looks like this one will be recapped so I can read up on how this goes for future reference if intersted in watching after it ends.

Thanks DB.

Idols AND vampires in one drama is definitely too much for me to handle. Hate both themes. Also, I think it's a waste for No Min Woo's image that he's gotten after Rock Rock Rock. He showed that there is something more to musicians that pretty faces and lipsync.
I don't want to be misunderstood, I would be absolutely delighted to see him in light comedic stuff. It's just I'm sick and tired of idolizing idols. Come on, even as a vampire can't he have other dreams? Like to design beautiful cars. Or revolutionise any field?

ohmigod PLEEEASE let Noh Min-woo take this! The part is pretty much tailor-made for him. He's got that perfect combo of almost unnatural good looks and a killer smile. I might even take time out of my schedule to watch a daily for it.

Can I get a blonde Rose(the star himself) at least for a few episodes? :D a lil cameo of self?
Yup this sitcom has NMW all over it! he was cute and funny in his previous sitcom
On the other hand this would have less viewers than a prime time drama and less recognition - but sounds way better than FH2

Love MinWoo....but seriously, the guy is 25 (?) why would they have him be in High School? unless he's a teacher (which could be very cool as well).....why can't he just be a college student?..High School seems like a real 'stretch', but I'll be watching none the less.

Aww, I LOVE SDY as a MC, comedian, and actor. I actually think that storyline can be quite tragic because it breaks all sorts of social norms (you know, as normal as being married to a vampire can get lol).
I mean, in most "human falls in love with a vampire" story, one of them gives up something in order to match the other (gaining or losing immortality). I find it interesting that that they're going in this route...

Also, Noh Min-Woo will always be 'Rose' to me. And, considering some of the outfits he wore during that time period, he'll be a bangin' vampire :D

PLEASE make this happen.

Interesting. NMW makes the perfect vampire with his pale, flawless, too-pretty looks. The premise sounds quirky and awesome and even if its 120 eps, I think I'll board this ship.

Um, YES PLEASE. Now, thank you.

We definitely do not need another generic romcom; what we do need is Noh Min-woo rocking it as a vampiric idol-wannabe from outer space. Yes. Oh, yes.

Am I the only one who isn't as gungho about Noh Min Woo? I mean he's pretty but so are other artists or actors. For me there isn't anything special to him other than a pretty face. Now same as javabeans I'm more interested in Shin Dong Yup and Kim Sumi story in the series.

Ok this sounds awesome!

I haven't watched a lot of his work but I think Noh Min Woo would be a perfect choice, he had that eerie immortal hotness in My girlfriend is a gumiho.

I've never stuck around long enough to watch a drama with over 50 episodes but maybe this'll be my first :)
