I Miss You in talks to cast Chun Jung-myung

This drama sure seems to be taking its time casting, isn’t it? At least now we’ve got a new name in the mix for melodrama series I Miss You, with Chun Jung-myung up for a leading role—although casting is, as always, not yet decided. According to his people, Chun has received the offer and is currently considering it; he reportedly likes the project so “there is a good chance” he will take it.

The show initially announced that it was courting Yoochun as its leading man a little while back, but all this while we haven’t had any confirmation. Just a series of “He’s still considering” statements from his side. Don’t worry, though, Chun’s not replacing him—he’d be joining him, if Yoochun does end up taking the role. (Who else thinks they’d make great brothers, purely based on looks? They’ve both got a serious mein that totally melts away when they smile, and I could see Yoochun being a cute younger bro.)

The show also courted Sohn Ye-jin, but she has already declined the role and the female lead remains uncast. Currently the only people who are fixed are youngsters Yeo Jin-gu and Kim So-hyun (in a Moon/Sun reunion), who should be great playing the younger counterparts to the main two. They’ll be each other’s first loves, experience some sort of pain/trauma/separation, then grow up bearing the scars of that heartache. The love story is described as a “hide and seek” of missed opportunities, which could be really sweet. But also angsty. Really, really angsty.

If both men sign on, I find it interesting that Chun Jung-myung is up to play the opposition. Not that it’s strange he’d play a bad guy, but I wouldn’t have thought he’d take anything but main hero roles at this stage in his career. I suppose the second lead may be as prominent as the hero, as in shows like Equator Man. But still, it feels odd to me.

Up until a year ago, I’d have put my bettin’ money that Chun would be more hero material than Yoochun, but Yoochun’s experienced a rapid rise to top stardom (as an actor, I mean; he already had it as an idol), so I suppose this makes sense. To be honest I prefer it this way, ’cause it’s sadly been ages since I’ve loved Chun in a drama (What’s Up Fox, six years ago); after Cinderella’s Sister and Man of Honor, my love is flagging. Whereas Yoochun was hilarious and adorable in Rooftop Prince, in a nicely refreshing way.

Chun’s (potential) character is set up as a rival to Yoochun from the start—from before the start, even, if you consider that the antagonism dates back to their parents’ generation. So, like Hate Rain then?

I Miss You comes from the writer of Can You Hear My Heart and Thank You, and will be taking over the Wednesday-Thursday timeslot from Arang and the Magistrate come November.

Interesting. Barely a month before the scheduled premiere and yet no definite casting news.

If ever they both take this, I prefer to see Yoo Chun being the antagonist, and a bad one at that, just for a change. CJM would be perfect in either roles, IMO.

Somehow I feel K-ent focuses too much on actors playing main leads than the variety of character types they've played thus far. This is in contrast to the works I've followed of some of the J-actors'. Not only do they play the most inane characters but also delve in growing as actors via performing on stage plays. The young'uns, PKW and SJK, are doing really well for themselves by not getting typecast and growing with each successive character they play.

PIE may be the antagonist but I think he'll do very well since NGM's character, the antagonist, was crazy good in CYHMH.

hear hear! While CJM's drama roles for the past couple of dramas haven't been really my ~taste~, I did like what this writer had to offer in the past and they've always been fairly character driven roles, filled with equal parts for everyone in the cast.

I look forward to it too :)

Thank God Son Ye Jin declined this role--she's much better than what the Kdrama had to offer anyway! I love the young actors though so I'll probably watch it purely because of them and hopefully I'll grow to like the Kdrama.

I read on DC that it's taking so long to announce the main leads because the female lead Yoon Eun Hye wants to keep it hush hush until the last minute. Everyone knew since the beginning that the female lead is Yoon Eun Hye all along, so when someone leaked out wrong info that it would be Son Ye Jin, no one in DC really believed it. And Son Ye Jin also said that although the production mentioned thish project to her a long time ago, yet they never sent her the drama script for it.

The info on DC said Lee Kim Production hired the highest level of Hallyu star on her late 20's, for the female lead role. Yoon Eun Hye is the highest level hallyu star in her 20's.

I read on DC this drama will be a bit similar to Yoon Eun Hye and Park Yong Ha's interrupted big hallyu project 'Love Song' and a little it also has a'Something Happened In Bali' feel to it.

Chun Jung-myung already turned down the offer. I guess he probably didn't want to play second to Park Yoochun.

DC said the story will be centered on the female lead and the hero and second lead both play important roles equally, but the female lead's part is the biggest.

The writers are very good and very well-known for their well written melo's, so this is very exciting and something I really look forward to.

It seems different from what I have been seeing on DC recently. It has always been SYJ as the most possible lead. And the synopsis released seems to be on the male lead center. However, we never know, that can be changed any day.
I heard that YC already rejected it.
I don't really want YC to take this drama from the beginning even though I love the writer. It is just not my type. So this can pass.

Yoon Eun Hye's name was released in DC as early as first week of August during the very first leaked info, way before Son Ye Jin and Yoochun's name were even mentioned by the media.

Most YEH korean fans have known about this project for the longest time, since Lee Kim Production never made it a secret that they want her to star again in one of their produced dramas. Same with MBC who consider Yoon Eun Hye as their lucky charm and their Miracle. Both of Yoon Eun Hye's biggest dramas Goong and Coffee Prince were MBC dramas. Goong was responsible for the second hallyu wave and Coffe Prince was huge too so they were busy courting YEH to do another MBC drama as their collaboration has always been a hit.

sorry, i just lurk around DC MBC so that is what I see all the time. I am not impressed with YEH in some of her recent dramas which are obviously not very successful so I don't follow her news. YEH is not known for melo drama I am not really sure about this. I just hope YC rejects this one like what rumor said coz I am not sure if he can do melo well either and wonder if this drama is the right choice. I do wish YEH lurk in this which can be a break out for her.

Out of all YEH's drama, only Lie To Me wasn't succesful in Korea ratings wise because of the badly written script.

My Fair Lady still managed to gather 19% ratings and kicked ass internationally. Lie To Me despite the poor script still managed to garner 11% in ratings. Had it been another actress in that sucky storyline, it wouldn't even make it past 5% in ratings and it was a huge hit in china, japan and mexico.

Latest rumor as of now in DCMBC is that Yoon Eun Hye rejected I Miss You too.

I guess next week we will find out for sure, if there's no announcement yet by next week, just like the production promised, then we will know for sure that both of them rejected it.

This drama taking so much time on finding cast huh?
Male and female leads still unknown. I think female lead are between SYJ or YEH. And for male lead, I heard YC already rejected it recently.

I was lurking in dcmbc since the first info leaked out.

Yoon Eun Hye's name has been in the leaked info since it came out in the beginning.

The second lead's role for the male is not really just reduced to just a typical second lead material. It has the same importance as the hero and is even given the chance to outshine the hero.

As per yesterday, they are saying that Yoochun rejected the drama. His agency was making too many demands to the production. Like that the production should hire an actress from his agency to be also part of the drama, possibly as the second lead and to top it off, his agency said that if all their demands wasn't met, they'd pull him out of the drama.

From what I have been reading, I already dislike YC's agency and how they do business.

I doubt it's true, because as far I know CJES only have 2 actresses. Song Ji Hyo and Oh Seung Hyun. SJH have movie coming soon and OSH also currently busy with drama already. I don't think the rumor is true..

Yoon Eun Hye rumour busy with her studies and declined the offer.

Now the latest rumor said Yoochun and Song Hye Kyo are confirmed.

That's weird,I think that rumor is false too, because Yoon Eun Hye already said on interviews since June, that she was taking the semester off cause she said she was getting ready for a project. Rumor in korea, that she was sent the script for I Miss You since April, but she was undecided then to take on this drama because she was still busy with school. But after much deliberation, she finally decided to accept the offer in June and she supposedly had her had a meeting with Production, PD's and scriptwriter on Aug.16.

For those who have followed Yoon Eun Hye's career espescially since she started her own management company, you'd know that she doesn't want her name to be announced till the last minute. She doesn't even inform her fans if she has to attend big events, or that she is leaving to go to another country for something big. She is very private/lowkey and doesn't want a huge entourage of media or fans to mob her at the airport. Luckily, her fans do some pretty good detective work and usually find out anyways.
So I wouldn't be surprised if all the casts names show up and her name would be announced last and even later than the other cast members, cause that's how she wants it.

They still have a lot of time to announce the main casts, cause they wont be shown till first week of November. The first 4 episodes will be played by the younger ones, so they dont have to announce the adult leads so soon.

I wouldn't be surprised if YC's agency (Cjes) actually has that kind of term. From the longest time i assumed that Cjes always demand for OST's slot(s) in every drama any JYJ's members stared in. When the issue about Junsu casted in a Movie with SJH came out, and in the end it turned out to be Jaejoong, i thought there was possibility the production team casted SJH first, and then Cjes proposed to cast their other artists. Since SJH is a big name rn, i think that was possible and actually strategic for Cjes to do so, and the fact that the lead male in the movie Jackal is a singer made the deal went smoothly.
I dont intend to remove credit entirely from Jaejoong, he is good, but this is an marketing strategy we are talkin about.

yoon eunhye is well loved by the industry because of her consistency and dedication. if this is the case, i still don't know why syj's name spilled to the market (and it's announced on august too), maybe something disappoint her (err... cjes? lol too much speculation xD), but i hope yeh will take this for real. this is meant for her. if yoochun's agency can't keep up with it, well just be it. i'd be sad to not having yoochun as a cast, but i always hope yoon eunhye get a good drama after all those trainwreck. this drama sounds good and i've heard that the female character occupation is fashion designer? that's totally eunhye!

and i don't care if it's just the young casts until the end actually, hahaha. they can make it longer, i'm totally in for these two.

what u mentioned is true but i think c-jes will not mess in casting as i earlier said the producer and writer are "big names" in industry + small company + reliable in JYJ for must incomes so they won't dare let the chance get lost form yoochun hand bargaining about others to get role..let that thing aside...
but do u have any idea of female lead possibility??? i m really curios about it
as u said .. i really hope the leads have big names in it because this drama is going head to head with ji sung and cha tae hyun's drama and they may get some strong competition coz they are really loved in korea so this drama should also have some strong and big names they should not just remain in yoochun popularity to get the drama hit..as for the child cast they are choosen wisely who can bring some ratings lets see the adult cast ^^

Yoon Eun Hye is #1 on female lead list. I've seen Lee Na Young's name mentioned as well and even Lee Min Jung, but most people in DC think that their fans just made it up.

Someone who can bring in ratings would also be Yoon Eun Hye. She is afterall called the ratings queen.
Lie to Me storyline was horrific but she managed to keep the ratings *though somewhat low*, afloat despite the trainwreck of a script. she has what you call star power. Her dramas except Lie To Me all got 2 digits in ratings and her drama The Vineyard Man, was one of the only few dramas which survived against Jumong. she is one of the very rare actress who was able to make it in the industry even when she wasn't paired with big time male leads. She is the biggest female Hallyu Star in her 20's and was reported on the news as 2nd highest paid actress after Go Hyun Joong. She is also a multiple Best actress award recipient of Baeksang, Grimme Awards and Top Excellence Award.

From what I've read here and there, Lee Kim Production wants her bad and have been doing anything to secure her as the female lead. We'll see, if they have succeeded.
