Jung Il-woo replaces Joo-won in fantasy sageuk drama

javabeans: Oh holy WHAAAAATTTTT now? Jung Il-woo is replacing Joo-won in Moonsunraincloud.

girlfriday: WUT?

javabeans: Okay okay, that fantasy-sageuk romance The Moon That Embraces the Sun or whatever. You know, Moonrainbowhippiemountain.

girlfriday: Am suddenly very interested in joining this hippie commune.

javabeans: Apparently Joo-won just can’t manage to juggle it with Ojakkyo Brothers. So Jung Il-woo is now playing the older brother to Kim Soo-hyun. Eeep, who to root for now?

girlfriday: Oh I’m Jung Il-woo all the way!

javabeans: But Kim Soo-hyun is the king! And the lead!

girlfriday: But Jung Il-woo is hotter!

javabeans: Hmm, I dunno about that. They have different kinds of hotnesses. Kim Soo-hyun is more straight-up intense and introverted. He smolders like nobody’s business.

girlfriday: Ok, fine, hotter to ME!

javabeans: On the other hand, Jung Il-woo plays his hyung who purposely acts like a frivolous playboy because he doesn’t want people to back him politically and endanger his dongseng.

girlfriday: Or… he’s just a frivolous playboy?

javabeans: Ha. He’s using that cover as a cover for his cover?

girlfriday: Works for everyone.

javabeans: The thing is, Jung Il-woo is amazingly good at the show-two-sides double-identity sort of thing. Like the spoiled manchild who also feels (for the first time ever, maybe). Or the commoner by day, the masked avenger by night.

girlfriday: I STILL swoon at the memory of him as Iljimae.

javabeans: Omg. The mane of glory….

girlfriday: *GASP* Best mane of glory ever!

javabeans: He’s the OG, yo.

girlfriday: Long live the pedigree of the glorious mane of glory.

Joo Won turned down MBC's MoonSun because He wanted to be a single top male lead, and he is the male lead candidate of another drama - KBS's '각시탈‘(bride mask?) based on cartoon.

if what you wrote is right Joo won is not very smart. Park Shi Hoo made a career at being the second lead in dramas and stealing the show from underneath the lead. I am sure Jung Il Woo is eyeing the same strategy. I know am will be tuning in to this drama for Jung Il Woo not the other guy whomever he may be. So Jung Il Woo wins here.

KBS kinda favor to him because they can't manage secure leading man and joowon is right choice, I can't imagine another actor taking lee kangto's role. I'm glad joowon taking gaksital than TMTES, it's more challenging in Bridal mask and I kinda dislike the character in TMTES which in the end he will die.

A lot of people are going to catch the second lead syndrome!

even though the drama hasn't aired yet, my mind's had kim soo hyun and joo won battling it out in my head since the joo won news. it's too bad he's not in this! but, i'm sure the drama will still soar.

only downside i hope becomes an upside: why..... han.. ga..... in.... ???

I don't know anything about this actress, or how good/bad she is. It seems that they can get what they need out of a lesser actress in a saguek because apparently, you are not able to show your true feelings. Very Jane Austen -ish.

Unless, that is, you are the bad guy(girl), or maybe a cross-dresser, then you are allowed. Ha!

yea i figured Joo Won wouldn;t be able to handle both since it doesn't look like OB would be over anytime soon...but good God if this isn't a dilemma!...also a little surprised that Jung Il Woo would take on a second lead role to Kim Soo Hyun when he's more like the sunbae here....hmmmmm...that said I'm soooo excited for this!! and damn if Jung Il Woo isn;t on fire this year...it's been like one project after another with barely 2 months of gap in between each...i hope he takes care of his health

Which shows how smart JIW is.

He seems to be building up his resume, rather than looking for first lead roles only.

I can't say "roles that don't spotlight him" because even as The Scheduler, a non OTP character, he held our attention every second he was on screen.

Playing a second lead to KSH? Omo, this is going to be so tough to ship consistently, I'll need a water taxi.

The drama is based off a novel, so at least he knows he's not going to get shafted like he was in My Fair Lady. It's probably a meaty second role. This novel's written by the Sungkyungkwan Scandal writer- and everyone was more obsessed with the second leads, Moon Jae Shin Gu Yong Ha, than with Lee Sun Joon.

Can't wait!

OMG! i shudder at the memory of what had become of his character in My Fair Lady... plus the crazy perm they gave him around the middle third of the drama. totally to make him less pretty and not to outshine the male lead pus his character was written to be very bland.

0
reply

Required fields are marked *

Well, not "everyone"..I seem to be one of the only ones that liked Lee Sun Joon much more than Moon Jae Shin... he was just so different from the stereotypical "mean, overly arrogant, can't deal with people lower than him rich guy" I always see in dramas... sigh...

But maybe it's good that Jung Il-Woo is the second lead, it gives him less pressure and a little more break after he finishes with his current drama...

I love Park Shi-hoo too (love him more in QoR) but imo his mane of glory in PM seems too neat, one would think that the rebel has a comb in his pocket somewhere. I said this with all the love that I have to PSH tho ^^

Whereas Jung Il-woo mane of glory in ROI *sigh*

I'm actually loving Joo Won after seeing him appear in quite a few variety shows. He and Jung Il Woo have different types of handsome (as does KSH)... so I'm not upset...

just sad for the role lost for Maa Jun :P I feel like it could have been an interesting marker in his career.

All the better for Jung Il Woo, and his mane of glory, I suppose.... I'm excited. I think I'm going to end up rooting for the older brother. Such a sucker for people who put on a happy facade despite their troubles :D

Ok, I'm breathless right now. I loved Kim Soo Hyun in Dream High and I was hooked by his new drama I was going to watch it anyway. But now that Jung Il Woo is joining... Ottoke! I fell hardcore for him. His Iljimae still haunts me in dream :) The problem is that I never fall for the second lead. Like never. Even Yoo Ah In didn't woo me and he was pretty a good second lead. I always root root for a lead guy. So what now? Am I going to root for second lead for the first time??? Or am I still be rooting fot main lead? I can already predict a war between Il Woo and Hyun Soo fans :D
