Joo-won headlines cops ‘n’ robbers rom-com

So, totally didn’t intend for it to be the Week of Joo-won Headlines, but I guess Fate’s got other ideas. After three hit dramas (Baker King Kim Tak-gu, Ojakkyo Brothers, Gaksital) and one that defies all earth logic (here’s lookin’ at you, Level 7 Civil Servant), Joo-won is going back to filmlandia to take his first headlining role in a movie.

It’s a romantic comedy called Only You, which is so vague you may as well call it A Romance Film. Though really, I suppose you’d get more people in the theater if you just went ahead and called it Movie Starring Joo-won-ie. The movie will be an unusual love story between a house burglar and a cop. It’s described as a light comedy, and will be directed by newcomer Lee Hyun-jong.

Joo-won will be playing the cop, which is kind of a bummer, given that he’s played that character about ten thousand times already. I’d rather have him be the cat burglar. Meow. The production is still in the casting process for the thievin’ heroine. I can only say this with so much emphasis because there’s no such thing as double-italics: She’d better be a good match for him. That is all.

Only You hopes to finish casting and start shooting as soon as Level 7 ends. No rest for the pretty.

woohoo. GAKSITAAAAAAAAAAAAAALLLLL:D

I too kind of wish he'd stop being type-cast. Though If cops looked like that in real life I'd be a thieving rapist and get arrested any day.

Also, I'm crossing my fingers and praying to the Drama Deities and Film Sprites Association that this time he'll act with someone his age. God knows this guy deserves an attractive young girl with good acting skills and chemistry.

Myself!!! :D With lots and lots of kissing scenes!!!

Haha, I'm kidding don't stone me :)

I've sadly been mulling this question in my head for the past half hour. Can you think of any outstanding actress in her twenties who can bring the best out of Joowon and vice versa?

lol...who can blame you for wanting kisses galore with JW? show them how it's done baby...hahahaa

hmmm..outstanding actresses in their 20's. my choices would have to be Shin Min Ah, Moon Geun Young and YEH. i adore them mainly because they really embrace their roles. the chemistry is hard to guarantee, but all we can do is hope and pray, based on their level of professionalism.

have you ever watched Coffee Prince? i was in awe of the onscreen chemistry between YEH & Gong Yoo. it seemed so REAL. so it surprised me to find out that offscreen, they weren't as tight. but in the grand scheme of things, what matters most is how well they're able to express their roles with some credibility. they need to make viewers like us, believe in their attraction and relationship. that's what excites viewers like me.

now if we're talking older actresses (taking into consideration that JW can look mature as well), i would love for him to work with Son Ye Jin, Song Hye Kyo, Jun Ji Hyun and Ha Ji Won. :-)

0

Wow this is creepy but I came up with almost the same names as you. I had Shin Min Ah, Yoon Eun-hye, Park Ha-sun, Song Hye Kyo, Han Hyo Joo and maybe Park Shin-hye. These are all popular actresses but I'm just shallow like that ^^;

Coffee Prince was one of my first korean dramas! I completely agree that YEH always manages to have chemistry with her co-actors. I'm pretty sure she'd be able to scrounge up some form of chemistry with a tree stump. The thing I respect about her is that she doesn't seem to care whether she looks good on camera or not.

Moon Geun Young's acting has been sort of iffy for me. I liked her in the first few episodes of Cinderella's sister, but she seems to have a limited acting range from what I saw in Cheongdamdong Alice.

I'll probably get shot for this but I didn't like Secret Garden or King 2 Hearts, so I don't really know about Ha Ji won's acting^^

Song Hye Kyo is just downright gorgeous, but I heard she only takes up one project every few light years, haha :D

I know I'm jumping the gun by already discussing the female leads but boy do I need this after the Level 7 let-down.

0

why is there no reply button to your last post Noa? lol.

ok..so i googled the unfamiliar names on your list...Park Shin Hye wins the cuteness competition! she'd look nice with JW. :-) of course, we're going to be shallow. we live vicariously through the characters we watch.....in this instance, JW'S leading ladies. we want them attractive, talented, smart, kick-ass, kind and worthy of JW'S character's love. :-P

i would have to agree with everything you've said about YEH, Moon and Ha Ji Won. Of the 3 i believe Ha Ji Won's acting isn't up to par, however, she can carry BAD-ASS really well. Moon..i've liked her since My Little Bride and Innocent Steps. she's a fantastic actress..but will admit that i didn't watch Alice. YEH..well, she's fierce. she's all about realism in portraying a character..doesn't matter if she looks plain onscreen..as long as it legitimizes her role..she's all for it. gotta love that about her.

L7CS...can't wait til it's buried in history.

I know - I had to click the "reply" button under my own comment^^

Anyway Elle, if you're not familiar with Park shin-hye, I recommend "You're Beautiful"! Her acting is not particularly fabulous in this one but the whole drama is really entertaining. It's the only mainstream silly drama I've really enjoyed so far just because it's so random and cute :)

"Flower boy next door" (which stars PSH) is also great, though it goes downhill the last few episodes.

0

ah...that's why she looks familiar. she was the nun in "you're beautiful" right? my daughter loved that drama. unfortunately, i haven't watched it yet. if and when she gets this role with JW..i'll be compelled to watch it :-)

in all honesty, i don't know a lot of korean actresses. but my simple wish is, whomever is chosen..it'll be an even playing field. someone he's evenly matched with in more ways than one :-)

0

OMG. who ever said that Moon Geun Young has limited acting must be... She is the best among her peers, the youngest Daesang winner and with lots of awards on her belt. What limited range are you talking about? Ugh.. just can't help but comment... SORRY guys..

0

@Elle: I totally agree ^^

@jack: You're entitled to your own opinion and so am I. Judging a person's acting is purely subjective and honestly the number of awards an actor wins doesn't do anything for me. I've seen many outstanding actors remain relatively obscure as well.

0

How about Jung Ryu Won? I can picture a bad-mouth- thief..teehee! Though I'm not sure about kicking a** part.

0

@jack..no need to be sorry. like what noa said, we're all entitled to our opinions. it's all good :-)

@nomaden..Jung Ryu Won is a good actress. i remember hating/liking her character in My Name is Kim Sam Soon. well played :-) she was also good in Which Star Are You From. but i agree that she might not fit the bad-ass role...since her outward appearance, imo is fragile. but hey, she's an actress. she can reinvest herself.

@ratsuki..i googled Han Groo. i've never watched her performances before. but whomever is chosen, they better be ready to bring it on.

BTW, I'm always hoping he can star with UEE since he seems to have a crush on her. Then we can watch as he squees over his good luck at 1N2D.

thank you mary for that explanation. :-)

so does JW still have a crush on UEE? i was charmed by their sweet moments in Ojakgyo Brothers. i wouldn't mind seeing them together again.

Moon Chae Won!!!!

I think PSH would look good, she is getting better with every role she is doing, and also her body is agile. She masters so many things, like taekwondo and and kickboxing. I am sure she would do justice to the character being a cute and bad ass thief at the same time.

0

Want to add the girl who starred on cable drama Girl K. I think her name is Han Groo or something. Her acting wasn't bad and she is young (or at least i think she is, don't know her age) and she will look good with Joo Won :). Never see her in any other drama but she can do badassery and intense really well. I do like to see how she handle a more light and fun role.

Actually I want her for Level 7.... But well, what done is done, so for exchange i want her here instead~

Ooh..yeah Han Groo is good. I watched her in Can We Get Married? She did well in that drama too! But from all the options I think Park Shin Hye sounds like a really good idea!

Jung eun ji too! Though I think out of all the options, han groo seems the best

0

I guess this is where the saying "striking the iron while it is hot" applies?
Maybe JW is also trying to get as many projects under his belt as possible, before the time for MS comes around? (Just a thought out of many...). That and he likes to keep busy, obviously?.

After a grand flop like Level 7 Civil Servants, a time to lick wounds and lay low might serve him more. And, while he is at it, to recontour his really round full-moon face with a divine plastic surgeon, perhaps?

But he is gunning for overexposure instead. We will see how it all works out for him.

Joo Won-hater strikes again!

Who is that beloved actor of yours whom Joo Won has upstaged? Because I just can't get how personal and vile you are with your attacks on this man.

To make your day better, Level 7 is not a grand flop. It may not make sense to fans here on dramabeans but it has higher ratings than many other dramas. More importantly, it has garnered new fans for Joo Won. The younger audience and viewers who shy off serious shows like Gaksital. Even the discerning ones in Korea who gave the drama thumbs down are praising him for his acting in Level 7.

In Korea, male actors make hay while the sun shines with military service looming in a couple of years. To fans, there is no such thing such overexposure. I will see how it all works out for you, meanwhile soak yourself in all your bitterness. It's going to take a long time, so enjoy it at a leisurely pace

i do worry about his well-being, but he's a fit and healthy young man, so it makes sense that he would have all that energy for multiple activities/shoots. besides, when army duty calls....i know we'll be missing him badly. so i'm thankful that he's giving us loads of ways to enjoy him, while we still can :-)

Even the actors in their 30s or more matured one being typecast as a police officer and a gangster. Two most favourite roles in Korean film. Heee.

Yay more Joo Won! I got onto the Joo Won train a little late, but I'm obsessed with him!! I do wish he would take a break, but if he's enjoying it, then more power to him. :D

I like JRW in all the dramas that she has been in. From stars...., the salaryman and king of dramas. She does fit the bill for this one too.

I love L7GCS. Out of all Joo Won's leading ladies, Choi Kang Hee is the best. I can see that she's the one who gave Joo Won the confidence in Gil-Ro's character (even Joo Won himself said that). I dislike watching most of the younger actresses, because they don't do good intimate scenes. In kissing scenes, all they do is stand still, arms by their sides and lips touching the guy's and freeze. Even just a simple hug scene, no embracing of the guy. You call this love? All they do is act pretty/cute & innocent. If not because of actresses like Choi Kang Hee, I definitely have given up watching rom-coms. Although she is 10 years older than Joo Won, but this age gap is not showing in the drama.

I can only say this with so much emphasis because there’s no such thing as double-italics: She’d better be a good match for him. That is all.

This cannot be repeated enough.

maybe, just maybe, Joo Won will have a say in who his leading lady should be. if so, i wonder who he would choose. acccccccccckkkkk!!!

Just out of curiosity, do people think if the female lead in Level 7 was different, things would be at least a little more bearable?

Because I hear people not really shipping the couple, which in romcom land is a very crucial factor.

I mean, I would ship Chansung and Joo Won, but that's just me.

wow...that's a difficult question to answer.

i'm conflicted because i feel that this show is plagued with countless problems that not even a different female lead can salvage.

on the otherhand, i also believe that if a different actress were to present Seo Won in a different light/angle, then it might've worked.

i suppose we'll never know.

Agreed, the problem is the non-sensical script, not the acting. I think the actors are fine. Love all the JW bits especially.

completely agree...especially about Joo Won. whenever he's on screen...he commands my attention. no matter that this show is a "disappointment" (sorry momosa lol), but JOO WON is most definitely not. he's the biggest consolation. saranghae JW :-)

It's the writing and story for me. She had better chemistry with freaking Jaejoong in PTB than JW in this drama. So I know it's not the acting, looks or age. Not sure why she gets all the blame either... There are a lot of problems in this drama, but the lead actress (and lead actor) isn't one of them.

Hmmm....cop again. Hope there's something unique about the character like an over enthusiastic cop or a lackadaisical one, whatever. Hopefully not a straight laced type although that might work as well.

It all boils down to the writing. As we can see from Level 7, no matter how interesting the premise is, if the writing fails, it's doomed. Joo Won is the saving grace of that drama.

It would really be interesting if the roles were switched and he plays the thief. Well, this man can steal anything. After all, he stole my heart. *sigh*

All the subtle and not so subtle shade towards Choi Kang Hee, lovely as usual. Sigh. Anyway, a cop again... exciting. I like him better in more dramatic roles.

I'm looking forward to see this movie. I love Joo Won!
I have to say I wouldn't like Uee to have the role just because I have only seen her in You're Beautiful and didn't like her that much.
I have a hard time seeing Park Shin Hye as a kickass thief, so I don't really want her to be main actress. Although it would be funny that the Baker King stars share a leading lady one after the other.
I don't know who I want to play the heroine, but she has to be able to match Joo Won well! I'm hopeful :)

I love Joo-won, but I'm getting tired of all his cop roles. But, this sounds (so far) really cute, so I'll maybe watch it.

I think I'd like to see the female lead played by someone young and fresh enough to be a good match for him. Like Uee (maybe, since they were so cute together in Ojakkyo Brothers) or maybe Suzy, or Park Shin-hye. At present, I'm leaning towards wanting it to be Park Shin-hye, because she's my favorite out of those three, and she's just adorable.

Adorable boy. XD I've liked him since Baker King and I never guessed he'd do so well for himself. I feel bad for not watching his other shows, but with you guys having so many recent posts about him I've started missing him, and now I really want to check out either Gaksital or Ojakkyo Brothers! Also, there's a (non-Asian) boy in one of my classes who looks a lot like him. : )

Oh, and my vote goes to Moon Chae Won for sure! Since TPM her projects haven't really interested me, but I adore her and if she were to star with Joo Won I'd pretty much have to watch!

Oh, my bad. I was counting War of the Arrows as post-TPM. Anyway, I didn't care for that and haven't had any interest in watching Nice Guy, but I really really like her and would love to see her in something good soon!

How about Park Se Young? I like her in School 2013 but haven't watch her in Faith yet. She will be a great match for joo won in this movie.

he's only been in 4 dramas that i know of. and only paired with rookie actresses in 2 of them. so i don't really understand your reasoning. personally i don't mind him being paired with a rookie as long as she's good. i kinda like park se young - she was badass in school 2013.

I wish Joo Won could have another good drama project within this year for me to strike off the horrid memories of 7LCS. The leads in 7LCS were great but the writing, pace and logic of the drama is like as mentioned logic defying and just outrightly BAD... 7LCS is just like a black spot on his otherwise illustrious resume.. :( hope that Only You do not disappoint.. I do not want any black spots...
