Sung Yuri and Kang Ji-hwan reunite for zany action-romance comedy

Woo, this movie sounds hysterical, plus Hong Gil Dong fans may be excited to hear that Kang Ji-hwan and Sung Yuri are reteaming in a new movie called Detective Cha, directed by Shin Tae-ra of Kang’s action-comedy movie Level 7 Civil Servant.

The movie is another action comedy that unfolds around Detective Cha Chul-soo…who, in order to solve a case, has to transform his macho self into a supermodel to walk the runway. Pffffffffffft. It’s like Miss Congeniality meets Zoolander, and there is no part of that sentence I don’t like. This is great. I can see the crazy happening already.

Sung Yuri plays the designer brought onboard to make Detective Cha’s ugly-duckling transformation happen; she’s bright and quirky with a killer fashion sense. Oh man, let that mean lots of avant-garde embarrassment for Kang Ji-hwan. Please?

I’m way onboard with this romantic match-up, which is probably my favorite pairing for both Kang Ji-hwan and Sung Yuri. I love that Kang had a bit of a crush on her before shooting Hong Gil Dong (in fact, the director asked if he had preferences for female leads, and he suggested Sung Yuri because he figured he might as well pick someone he likes), and I find that they work very well doing wacky, even slapstick comedy. Sung has always been very hit or miss for me, but she’s so much more likable playing plucky than she is playing the cold sophisticate, in my opinion.

And, of course, the premise is just a hoot. Can’t wait for this one!

Detective Cha begins filming this month, which means it won’t be out till next year. *Checks watch. Taps foot. Waits impatiently.*

I mean, just look at them in Hong Gil Dong. They’re adorable:

Awww! My #2 honey in a new flick. Yay! Too bad it's a year out and I'm liable to forget. I'll trust javabeans to keep us posted about it's progress.

Did anyone see Level 7 Civil Servant? Or know where I could find it online?

Someone needs to find him a GOOD rom-com to do when he's done filming this. I miss him. :0(

Kang Ji-hwan? I'm there with bells on! I really liked their chemistry in Hong Gil Dong. They were hysterical in it...well, where hysterics were warranted. And an even bigger Kang Ji-hwan fan. He makes subtlety an art.

If there was one leading women I'd want Kang Ji Hwan to act with again, it would be Sung Yuri. I absolutely ADORED them in Hong Gil Dong! Just the thought of them together again on the same screen brings a smile to my face.

Ahh, this news makes me so happy. :D

Best drama news i've heard in a while! <3

This really seems like it'll be a good one, and it seems like it'll be entertaining just from that really brief summary, but the leads make me have to watch this! I've missed this pairing and i can never have enough KJH (especially since i barely finished his last drama T_T) *rewatches Hong Gil Dong/Coffee House in the meantime*

Yes! A movie! I don't know if I could be on board if it's a drama. The premise sounds so much fun. I guess detectives can be models if they want to, right?

And ehem *clears throat* KANG JI HWAN!!!! (bold, underline, italic)

Amen! KJH is an amazing actor and its bugged me that the dramas he's filmed recently have been so...off. Well, HGD was epically awesome. I'm a sucker for sageuk...then you make it a fusion...*swoon*

I think besides his looks, its the line delivery. He has a comedian's timing.

OMG i love these two. I love Sung Yuri, even if her acting is a bit weak. She's tries hard, it's just that she does not have a knack for acting. But it's ok. I love you with KJH.!! Hopefully they'll film soon.

totally agree with u Lisa/Raine...He Is a brilliant actor. acting God !

I'm thrilled with this pairing as the ending for HGD was so sad...now we can have our feast with them paired up again. YAY!!

Its like in 90 days, Time To Love- KJH with Kim ha neul, it is a beautiful drama also sad ending . Then they both paired up again in My Girlfriend is An Agent and it feels great to see them again.

I've watched KJH in Se Strong Geum Soon. He is perfect as Jae Hee....his crying scenes are epic. he can make his chin and lips quiver when he cries...breaks my heart. so real!
KJH still my No 1 !!!

I keep saying this but, KJH really is a fine actor. Like Hollywood fine. He is a master of subtlety, slapstick, dry humor, tragedy, heroics...seriously, is there anything he CAN'T do? (Be ugly?)

You know I keep remembering when I think of this pair? That last few minutes of HGD when the arrows are coming down and you hear the voice over of Yi-nok asking him if he knows what 'i lub you' means and he repeats 'saranghae' 3x? The way his voice sounds is AMAZING. He puts so much into so little. You can tell he's translating the words and also telling her he loves her. It also reminds me why I cried and why I love the ending. They had their romance, but the legacy and the idea of a man like him was the important part. Also, even though historically the romance didn't really matter, their romance was real and strong for THEM, during THEIR lives so they could die with that fulfillment while history gets a kickass HGD!

Wow, I'm getting tired...I can't phrase that any better right now...I went to a show downtown and I'm sooo tired. Why am I on DB? 'Cause K-drama is crack....

Good combination Ji Hwan is good looking n Yuri is just gorgeous. Their drama Hong Gil Dong was a hit in 2008 and wish their movie will be a hit too. Perfect couple. Want to see them on red carpet again with awards in their hands. Keep up the good work.
