Kim Haneul considers A Gentleman’s Dignity

Okay, now this I can get behind. Apparently when you get a movie star to headline your drama, all the other movie stars line up too. Kim Haneul (You’re My Pet, Blind) is now the latest contender to star opposite Jang Dong-gun in upcoming miniseries A Gentleman’s Dignity, slated for May.

She’s reportedly been offered the role and is considering the reunion with On Air screenwriter Kim Eun-sook (who’s also reteaming with PD Shin Woo-chul of Secret Garden). If this happens, I’ll pretty much be tuning in for the star power alone, and I’m guessing everyone else will too. Not that star power can save a drama from crazyville if that where it’s dead set on going. I’ve been burned enough times to know that much.

A Gentleman’s Dignity stars Jang Dong-gun, Kim Min-jong and Kim Suro as a set of 40-something bachelors navigating the dating scene. I hope that they’re going to shoot for a range of actresses in different age brackets to star opposite them, like at least one noona romance. Where’s Lee Mi-sook when you need her?

There’s not much information on the story yet, other than being called a male version of Sex and the City, but obviously it’s not going to be Ajusshis in the City, because for one it’s on network television, and knowing the writer there’s going to be a lot more melo than comedy. But it’s being branded as a romantic comedy, so I’ll be happy if it surprises me.

A Gentleman’s Dignity is slated for 20 episodes on weekends in May on SBS.

I'm not a big fan of KHN. I think she's really cold on screen, but maybe this will change my mind. Gotta think about a replacement....

KHN needs someone like Kang Ji Hwan (My Girlfriend is an Agent) to make her blossom, or Cha Seong Won. Maybe Jang Dong-Gun can do it...he makes me drool...

oh yes, she's someone I can agree with to be paired up with JDG!

I was thinking, instead of Son Yejin ( someone mentioned her in the previous post ), I'd pretty much prefer Kim Haneul. I think she'll accept it.

Come on, everybody ( okay, every body who already knows Kdrama since 90s like me ) will tune in this drama just because of Jang Donggun. So it'll be a good comeback drama too for the female lead.

I can't see them having chemistry, but I'll wait to be surprised.
Seems to me they have blown most of the budget on paying these A-listers, maybe the storyline doesn't require overseas shots or expensive sets.

So true! I thought I was the only one who thought that with all the praises being heaped on their acting. But then many people equate overacting with good acting.

Someone once said about acting - "It's important not to indicate. People don't try to show their feelings, they try to hide them."

If Won Bin makes a comeback in the dramaverse, I will cry happy tears for the rest of the year!!!! He needs to do more, there's only so many times I can rewatch AIMH to get my dramafill of him :)

Exactly! I can only watch The Man From Nowhere about another 100 times before dying to see him in something else. Try watching "Friends." Although it's only 4 eps, still something Won Bin related, right?

Aww, I was just thinking about her the other day.. It's not a pairing I would've come up with on my own, but I think I like it. I hope she accepts, it'd be nice to see her on the small screen again.

JDG'a return to small screen is surely squeal-worthy but pairing with KHN???? She never excites me in any role I've seen her in, including her big box office hit movies - very cold and detached in her performance.

An AAE reunion with either Chae Rim (Dalja-esque, not Sunmi-esque) or Kim So Yeon is something I am happy to see.

I know KHN is not great but she does tend to have good chemistry with her co-stars. How many times do we doubt and the drama comes out ok!

I may be the odd ball out but I kinda want a noona-donseng romance with Go Huyn Jung. I miss her in dramas.

Some of you mentioned Kim So Yeon. I think they might go for the dorkier/plain type of herione to give contrast to JDG's character. Kim So yeon might be too pretty that. Kim Ha neul fits that type more. Just a thought, i'm probably wrong.

I know it's not all about star power, but somehow the concept seems really exciting (though these are some of the melo-core actors of drama yester-year). I just hope they channel more of their "campus drama" years than anything.

Still, Kim Suro and Kim MinJong!!! I cant help but be excited!

The only reason I'm not as excited for JDG is because he's almost become a mythical like figure through the years...I almost forgot how he acts haha. It's almost like "Yoonsama" haha.

NO. Count me out now. I've never been a fan of Kim Ha Neul and her acting.
As much as I like JDG, KHN completely spoils it now. Regardless of all these "big" stars although I believe Jang Dong Gun is really the leading force behind all of this, it all comes down to the story.

OOOOH, maybe Soo Ae?

Oh, I hope not. She is good looking, but I've seen her in three things - On Air, Road No. 1 (granted, I couldn't watch either of those all the way through) and You're My Pet (horrible movie!) and I just don't get anything but the pretty face. Can she be passionate? Does she really have the so-called "chemistry" with any of her co-stars? If anyone brings up "You're My Pet" as an example of her chemistry, I will laugh.

Hmm I haven't seen much of KHN work. Like two movies. So I can't really say much about her being in the project. I can however completely agree about Chae Rim and Su Ae. I love them both and I would be happy with one or both of them being involved. Su Ae needs a rom-com I think. To much serious going on.

about "youre my pet".. i always thought the role of Sumire will need a very sensitive actress with tons of acting chops. Sumire is an independent and successful career woman in the outside yet a wounded soul in the inside. the actress to portray her needs to be able to channel Sumire's conflicting emotions without words. i've never seen a kim ha neul performance before but i always thought kim sun ah will give justice to Sumire. i am sad that apparently "you're my pet" didnt do so well in the box office. I am a fan of kimi wa petto and JGS.

Well, for me it's the writer that interests me first XD I loved On Air and I think this actress did a pretty great job in it.

Honestly I am not a big fan of KHN. Why not Lee Min-jung or someone in the early twenties. That would something fresh and interesting, maybe Jung So-min or Park Shin-hye(that would be cool)? I won't give up in hoping to see JSM in a Drama this year ^^

They are too young. It will looks like a dad and his kids. He definitely needs someone with less of a cutesy look and more of an adult one or else it will just look funny.

While I am a fan of Jung So Min (please drama gods, i need Oh Ha Ni back!!!), i think she is much too young for Jang Dong Gun... they will look like father and daughter.

I am kind of biased right not just coming off of Piano which was an annoying drama. I've never found her tolerable except in her movie Too Beautiful to Lie.

I think she doesn't ever have much of ANY chemistry with her partners.

Anyway, is Song Hye Kyo ever coming back? Huh.

For this I'd say Lee Da Hae actually. :)

I only saw her in My Pet, and she was so transparent in it. I know that the script was awful, but i also think she didn't try to save the ship ( and yes, no chemistry ). So if anyone else could steal her part, i wouldn't oppose. I know she's not available anymore but i would have liked Ha Ji Won.

Same! Just saw her in You're My Pet and her character did nothing for me. Not the way it was written, but also her acting it. Just fell flat.

Of course, I was constantly comparing her to Sumire (can't remember the name of the Japanese actress)...

Ugh. You're My Pet was a tragedy. I haven't seen Kimi wa petto yet, but the film left me feeling disappointed probably because I expected too much from it.

I've always liked Kim Ha-neul since My Tutor Friend and My Girlfriend is an agent. I don't think she's the best actress of her generation, but my biasedness is blinded by realizing that. So reading these comments make me think on her projects to understand why she is mediocre. Anyway, there could be a better choice. Chae Rim, Son Ye-jin, and Jeon Ji-heon? I'm not sure about Song Hye-kyo because she still hasn't proven to me yet of her talent (but I loved her in World that they live in).

Not impressed with her acting. She is not pleasing to watch and always has a cold and unapproachable look onscreen. When she cries, I can't sympathize with her character and when she laughs, I still dont feel anything. Her last series had one of the worst ratings and her last movie You Are My Pet was a huge flop.

Not a surprise that JDG is coming back on tv and the easy route at that, with a weekend drama. His movie My Way was one of the worst bombs in korean movie history, so he must be pretty desperate right now.

Getting good ratings in weekend dramas aint considered that great.

KHN is a fine actress in Blind. I like her personality in 2D1N. I particularly like her independent attitude, jovial nature and witty personality; as compared to CJW. 2D1N reveals CJW's low aptitude, superficial attitude and shallow attribute.it seems that all these years, her image is too well-managed and she shows her true co our even more in Healing Camp.
