Drama Casting & News
Filming begins on Jeon Woo-chi
by | October 25, 2012 | 44 Comments

girlfriday: Wheeee! Finally, some stills from KBS’s Wednesday-Thursday drama Jeon Woo-chi!

javabeans: Cha Tae-hyun looks like he’s having a blast.

girlfriday: It would just be wrong to play a wizard and not have a blast.

javabeans: I love that the description says that Woo-chi “harbors the desire for revenge inside” but outwardly comes across as a goof-off. I can totally see the goof-off, but the revenge part (after Woo-chi loses his mentor Hong Gil-dong and his sweetheart) makes him interesting. Also: Who’s gonna suspect that joker of being a big threat?

girlfriday: Ooh I like that — he can let everyone underestimate him, and then poof! You’re a rat! Okay, that’s probably not the kind of magic he does, but yunno. I really do like the inherent duality of an impish prankster character who’s hellbent on revenge.

javabeans: It definitely puts a new spin on the ole sageuk hero archetype. Buh-bye, cool action hero heartthrobs with Manes of Glory! Iljimae, Baek Dong-soo, uh, Other Iljimae, move aside. The class clown with the little ponytail is reporting for duty.

girlfriday: I do love the pony. The flying-in-the-air-with-ponytail-up-at-high-mast is awesome.

javabeans: Reportedly, Tae-hyun has been working out intensively and doing lots of stunts. I wonder, will that turn him around on 1N2D and make him less the lazy bum? Or… will that just make him more tired and magnify the lazy bumminess?

girlfriday: I was just gonna say, it’ll probably make him more of a lazy bum. There’s a chance it’ll push him onto the Capable Team, but I don’t think it’ll change his desire to win any games.

javabeans: …which probably means he won’t actually make it to the Capables. Sigh. Well, maybe he can practice his math problems in his downtime.

girlfriday: I want to know what he’s doing in the non-flying stills. Is there an invisible fox bead of magical power there?

javabeans: I want to know what the PD told him. “Just make something up. We’ll CG it in post!”

girlfriday: Famous last words of the Faith PD. *facepalm*

javabeans: *faceslap*

    so looking forward to this one! more sageuk! Moooore! I wouldn’t mind if all the KDramas were sageuks, in fact. cool ones, obviously. Not of the Faith kind.

      oh please….how will i watch a drama then!!

      • 1.1.1 kakashi

        haha, please don’t take me seriously!!

    • 1.2 racheose

      i haven’t watched faith yet is it bad? if it is i won’t go near it… thanks

      • 1.2.1 kakashi

        hm. well, it’s not outright bad in my opinion, but it’s also not very good. If you like slow but sweet romances you should watch it, though.

        • addylovesbwood

          It’s not the BEST drama ever but it’s worth watching especially if you’re a LMH fan. It does kinda start out slow/boring but it definitely picks up a little.

      • 1.2.2 jomo

        I LOVE FAITH!!!

        It doesn’t have great fight scenes, or great surprise twisty twists, or bad guys with cool dastardly plans, but it has heart and lovely characters.

    • 1.3 nene

      i’m lmh fan but aishh i was even gonna help w subbing ..but tat drama sucks…i’m not that cray cray ..but am waiting for this..concubine cha soo funny..lmaoo

  2. JIW_sobangnim

    Aww harsh thing to say about Faith eh?
    LEE MIN HO fans won’t be happy ><

    차태현 ㅋㅋ yay! Loving all the 일박 members having new dramas ^^

  3. kika

    Hmmmm…. “Famous last words of the Faith PD.” ??

  4. birdscout

    Just looking at these stills makes me smile 🙂 CTH always puts me in a smiley mood!

    • 4.1 mud

      Same here. He always makes things look fun.

  5. d

    cth is eternal babyface, but the hairstyle makes him look so old here.

    how to be a couple onscreen with uee.

    • 5.1 Noonie

      True~~… he has this so baby-like face, but once he changes his hairstyle he completely transforms into an older version of him O.o I noticed it a couple of times.. but ‘gain, this should be better in this context… honestly, I couldn’t picture our Taehyun in this serious action role until I saw these pics and his new style :D, CTH hwaiting!

  6. stars4u

    I’m soooooo excited!!!!

  7. Cindy

    now I’m in a dilemma, I want Nice Guy to end now, but I don’t want Nice Guy to end now -.- *facepalm*

    • 7.1 jєѕѕα™ 주원사랑 (@jung_kYro)


      I want to end our OTP’s suffering in Nice Guy so it means it has to end. But i don’t want Song Joong Ki and Moon Chae Won to leave. huhu!

    In last week’s 1N2D, Cha Tae Hyun mentioned that the place they are filming is the place where Bird PD lost to Kim Jong Min in 5Mok. The stills kind of look like it.

  9. Waca

    This looks really nice! I’m looking forward to it!
    Thx for the news, javabeans & girlfriday!

    And I’m happy for the hair; I like the ponytail better than the mane of glory!

  10. 10 mikan

    love love love Cha Tae-hyun! I reaaaaally can’t wait for that one!

  11. 11 Abbie

    This looks hilarious. I can’t wait!

  12. 12 Akiness

    I stopped watching Faith in episode…whatever. I’ve been reading the recaps more than anything else just to see what happens. I like the actors but the show itself is NOT well done. -_-

    I’m really looking forward to Jeon Woo-Chi though. Cha Tae-Hyun is such a goofball and I can’t wait to see what he does with this role.

  13. 13 crazedlu

    Bah! Excited!

  14. 14 addylovesbwood

    It looks awesome. is UEE still our heroine? I’d probably watch for her. I’m not a huge fan of segeuks

  15. 15 John

    Heard this on the radio yesterday.

    Science behind ponytail revealed

  16. 16 Kiara

    I remember whining about the lack of sageuks a few years back. Now there is too many and I cant keep up lol.

  17. 17 Aindrama Critic

    this next show of KBS is not my cup of Tea…i prefer MBC’s I Miss You…

    • 17.1 Luis

      yeahh, everyone has their own preference… i like all the cast of I miss u, but the story seems so mellow/sad. I like comedy more, so jeon woo chi…

      • 17.1.1 mischaa

        i like jeon woochi too…can’t wait!!!!

  18. 18 risa

    “…he can let everyone underestimate him, and then poof! You’re a rat!” Haha~ my dramabeans-centric brain read that and instantly saw an image of Prosecutor Joo from Vampire Prosecutor 2. (jb had previously likened her to a rat and that likeness obviously resonated with me.)

    I love the idea of a having a revenge-seeking wolf dressed in class-clown clothing– Cha Yae Hyun is just the guy to pull that off.

  19. 19 Suzi Q

    I love everything Cha Tae hyun is in since My Sassy Girl!
    But not a fan of UEE.
    Watch the movie so I’m hoping it will be as funny and fantastic!

  20. 20 cutieblue

    Can’t wait for this drama!! It looks like a lot of fun! 😀

  21. 21 Gaeina Lee

    Seems he’s having a blast on the set.. Am so looking forward to this!

  22. 22 ~Feather~

    I can’t wait for this to come out so I can watch it! Yay, Cha Taehyun!

  23. 23 Kim Yoonmi

    I’m helping mod this on Viki, if they pick up the license. I hope official posters can come out soon so I can kkomaengi them up for the home page and do a bit of art.

  24. 24 momosa

    I was spoiled by Jeon Woo Chi the movie starring Kang Dong Won. My idea of JWC is someone lean, smart & tricky. Can’t picture Cha Tae Hyun as him, which is like..the opposite. But then again, Cha can take on anything, so yes, can’t wait.

    • 24.1 gala

      Same here. But, I think if anyone can do a whack version of JWC, other than the debonair KDW, it’s gonna be CTH.

      But I probably won’t watch this until it’s over. I’ve recently re-watched JWC and KDW’s portrayal is still fresh in mind. I can’t let go of him just yet. Sigh, here’s hoping the army changed KDW’s mind about drama appearances. I want him on TV (or laptop screen) weekly. His movies aren’t enough. And god forbid, I have to suffer through 1% of anything just to watch him in something longer.

    • 24.2 Luis

      yes, they are totally different.. KDW did really good portrayed Jeon woo chi in the movie but I can see jeon woo chi’s character in CTH too, so I hope it will good…

  25. 25 asianromance

    Famous last words of the Faith PD. *facepalm*–> LOL!!

  26. 26 varms

    Hee hee! *pointsandlaughsatponytail*

    Definitely gonna catch this because it looks like a hoot and a half with Cha Tae Hyun. Just pleeease don’t be Faith. A bit scared of fusion sageuks now actually…

    UEE fighting! I love this actress!

    • 26.1 mischaa

      me too…love uee!!!

  27. 27 @liss@

    I’m so looking forward to this drama! Cha Tae Hyun looks so hilarious and nice!

  28. 28 foolmoon

    In just to see Cha’s smile …. ^_^
    Looking forward for this, with a handful talented casts I just hope PD-nim and writer-nim won’t let us down. *poseforapray*
