Cha Seung-won considers medical drama

Will Cha Seung-won be returning to dramaland as Doctor McSwoony? (Though I really want to name him Doctor McMustache…) The action-drama heavyweight who transformed into comical leading man in this year’s hit rom-com Best Love may be making a quick foray back to television, this time as a doctor in the medical drama The Third Ward. Cha did once reject the offer to star in THE medical k-drama, 2007’s White Tower, which everyone seems to be mentioning as some kind of wrong that needs to be righted.

The Third Ward is about a neurosurgery ward as the battleground for a war between Eastern and Western medicine. If he takes the lead role, Cha would play a cold gruff doctor (of course) who is forced to follow his father’s footsteps into Western medicine. What’s with the Brain obsession lately? Is there a brain surgeon vogue I’m unaware of?

Cha, who just picked up a Daesang from the Style Icon Awards, reportedly accepted his trophy with the words, “I’m pretty, right?” HA. Yes, yes you are. It really is a wonder where Dokko Jin ends and Cha Seung-won begins. Not that it’s a bad thing, mind you. It’s earned him a resurgence of love from the public and critics alike. He IS looking rather dapper, so there’s no argument from me when it comes to red carpet style. Some guys were just born to be dressed in tuxes. Mmmm…

The Third Ward will be airing on SBS early next year. For now, more pictures of The Pretty:

Like a lot of others have commented previously, I didn't find CSW all that good-looking at first-- but it didn't take long for my hormones to override my brain and to tell me that he is, in fact, uber attractive, regardless. It's as if his pheromones were digital because so many of us have had the same experience. In any case, the man exudes sex appeal and charisma and there are plenty of us fangirls who'd love to drool our way through another CSW drama.

I always wondered why people were obsessed with him and then 5 mins into Best Love I went OOHHH! By the time we got the the little skip/hop/kick, I was making grabby motions at my screen. He totally exudes charisma and appeal!

UNNI! Happy OT.

I agree. CSW is so sexy. He's in the Rain PSH category for me in that respect.

Speaking of Rain, he's SOOOOOOO charming in SDLGTS. He can switch emotions on the drop of a hat and totally win you with everything. Gong Hyo-jin is LOVELY in this. The long-haired, wispy look works for her.

I don't like this hairstyle, at all. I thought his hair looked much better a little shorter, like in his City Hall days. With that large triangle of forehead surrounded by black hair, I am unfortunately reminded of Zorg, the villian played by Gary Oldman in The Fifth Element. The mustache doesn't help.

I don't like the styling either,BUT that can be changed the inner sexiness is just there and cant be undone no matter what his costume or role. City Hall did not seem as if it would be sexy.......

He reminds me a bit of Sean Connery. They both looked good in their younger days, but their younger selves have nothing on their more mature selves.

CSW's face has become so much leaner, triangular as he's aged. Melikey.

I actually think CSW looked better in his younger years; back then he didn't have the overly-styled/shaped eyebrows or the floppy coif.

You like his tiger brows? I guess I like my men more metrosexual. Personally I prefer his latter persona: cool, suave, and dangerous to know.

I have never seen him in anything yet, and I do hear that he's best seen in motion - but I think he's handsome enough...I just don't like the facial hair. I'm a fan of mustaches and neatly trimmed beards in general, so it's his specific facial hair I don't care for. I have to watch Best Love soon, though - from what I understand I won't have this reservation long. I do think his profile is lovely.

I am also a fan of mustaches and neatly-trimmed beards but I don't like his though. I watched Best Love and he was entertaining but Yoon kye San (perfect Piljoo) won my heart and never let it go. Maybe I will fall for him when I watch City Hall.

I am a notorious pro-moustache-er. I've seen him pre-moustache and without the bangs and while he was still very attractive he was borderline pretty boy. I think he looks manliest with the facial hair.

Unni, if you watch Best Love, they make fun of his mustache of which the lower part spells cow....kekeke.

Watch Best Love and get back to me. Or City Hall for that matter. Bodyguard is on my movie watch list.

This news makes me so happy. I've been re-watching this teaser for the T-ara music video (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=l1fMgNH5cTQ) over and over again, even though I don't like them or their music, all because of CSW. Seriously, I agree that this guy is the definition of sex appeal and charisma. I say this because there are things not to like... his mustache, his cleanly shaped brows, and his slurred speech and yet... his megawatt smile, and the way the corner of his eye crinkles and ultimately, his acting, his personality, and just his aura overall... it all screams sexy. He's magnetic, plain and simple. He pulls you in and never lets you go.

He really is best seen in motion and I'm actually not a fan of facial hair... but CSW makes it work, I love him with and without his cow but it's kind of like his trademark look now. He almost isn't complete (but still pretty sexy) without his cow.

MJP *hugs*. Oh panties. I still won't get over that. Especially because for me it has lots of meaning.

I was in England and staying in a friends apartment. I was REALLLLLY hung over (to make excuses for what I'm about to tell you) and I couldn't find my pants. Now pants in American English are jeans. However, in British English they are panties. So I ran around in an apartment full of men and women in my jammies calling for my pants. Needless to say, I quickly learned the error of my ways following the smirks of amusement and interest by the men and indulgent giggles from the ladies.

Dokko Jin...we are kindred spirits.

Both actors always electrify their kissing scenes with their counterparts so put them together and you are just a hormonal mess. I had to pause and rewatch. 50,000,000 times. And did you watch the making of? They were so professional about it. It was crazy.

Luuuvvvvv to see CSW in action again and soon.
Been smitten by his charming n sexy look to the point of changing my fangirl nickname.. from momojgseel to momodokkogirl... lol
After Best Love and City Hall, all other k-drama seem to be mundane and plain..at least to my personal preference.
Again this is just me..don't start throwing things at me...

So, I can see him channeling a grumpy doctor. Just pull some Best Love comedy every once and a while and I'll be happy. Maybe he has a Robert DeNiro in Stardust secret obsession...just to make me giggle. Because he can...WELL.

I don't know if I would call Cha pretty but, in the field of Korean pretty boys who look more like women ( there must be a lot of gay hairdressers out there) he certainly exudes the energy of a man's man which is refreshing. I do not like thst goatee Je has but it does help him look different and defines his face as long as the beard is not too dark.
