Eom Ji-won to romance the Emperor

Ex-vampire-prosecutor Yeon Jung-hoon‘s new drama For the Emperor (or Here’s To the Emperor) has secured its leading lady in Eom Ji-won (Sign, The Woman Who Still Wants to Marry). Damn, just what I need — another drama to watch. I love each of them separately, but together? Okay, so maybe Yeon Jung-hoon with anyone is swoonworthy, but I love Eom Ji-won’s bubbly charm. Her Woman Who Wants to Marry character pretty much endeared me to her for life.

For the Emperor is about a midas-touch chaebol CEO, not an actual king, who suffers from an emperor complex. On account of the buckets of money he has? Yeah no explanation needed there. His character Ma In-tak thinks money’s the best stuff on earth, but then something happens because of his wealth that sends him on a journey to learn about what people are really like. Hm. It’s vague, but I’m thinking it might be a riches-to-rags story, because the only way you’d get someone like that to reconsider his worldview is to take away the thing he values the most.

Eom plays heroine Yoon Da-ran, an endlessly optimistic, lively and outgoing woman, whose main goal in life is to secure a rich husband. Hm. So far I’m not that excited about the character description, but I suppose it’s all in the execution. I mean, technically, her character in The Woman Who Still Wants to Marry was like that on paper, but turned out to be full of win. I hope this drama’s got a light and fun tone, because if it’s Midas all over again, I’m out.

For the Emperor fills What’s Up‘s timeslot on cable network MBN, though it premieres after a break, in late February.

i've LOVED her ever since Woman Who Still Wants to Marry... So this news has definitely peeked my interest! I wasn't planning on watching this, but maybe now I'll give the first few episodes a try :)

On top of the prince complex, there's the emperor complex? God, I love K-dramaland!

And they also have the God complex : See Jaejoong's character in Protect the Boss. :)

At least Jaejoong comes by it honestly. Didn't they call him a 'God of the East' in his DBSK days? Heh.

Eom Ji-won is so cute and really talented, she simply shines in her movies. I think she'll make a great pair with Yeon Jung-hoon, both are mature and have a calm tone to their voices. Count me in! :)

Yeah!! Although the description does sound almost identical to her Woman Who Still Wants to Marry character, she was a blast to watch. Plus, this pairing is interesting. I don't see the chemistry yet, but these are actors I know who can deliver and it's an "older" couple, which is refreshing in a realm saturated with pretty young boys ;)

shoot... you know.. darn old age, I still don't remember which one. My mind kept thinking about the prosecutor from City Hunter (gahhh.. even the gender is different!)... *knock my head on the wall* . Thank you though for the reply, I'll drive my crazy today thinking of the prosecutor.

I liked her in Sign. I might wait for a recap or maybe just watch the first episode before I decide to watch it or not.

I just watched a cute little romantic comedy with her and Im Chang-jeong -- they were both good, and I really like Eom Ji-won. She takes normally really annoying characters and makes them likable and funny. And she was sooo funny in TWWSWTM.

So I may be onboard with this one... I'm just not totally sold on the story.

Ooohhh!
I have no idea who she is, but we all know Guyliner Prosecutor could have chemistry with...[searching for non-insulting joke] anyone.

I am watching Jejoongwon now for him in a hanbok homina homina.

As much as I like both of them, I'm probably going to pass on this one for the time being. There's just too much to watch and the premise on this one doesn't really interest me. I keep picturing Ebenezer Scrooge with a trophy wife...
