Jung Yong-hwa cast opposite Park Shin-hye again, seriously

Dude. WHY. Why why why with the repeat pairing that will not die in dramaland? Jung Yong-hwa and Park Shin-hye AGAIN? It’s been confirmed that the pair who were costars in 2009’s You’re Beautiful and again in 2011’s You’ve Fallen For Me are going to be reunited for a third time. Jung Yong-hwa just been cast in Kim Eun-sook’s next big rom-com Heirs (He Who Wishes To Wear the Crown, Endure Its Weight: Heirs) starring Lee Min-ho, due out this fall.

The endless re-pairing is a thing I don’t understand, because sure they’re cute together, but enough already. I don’t even like it when it happens once. Even with him going back to second lead territory, it’s a retread of roles they’ve already played. Either this drama is just trying to be Boys Before Flowers-meets-You’re Beautiful so literally that it’s just mashing the two casts, or these two have some kind of cupid pulling Fate’s strings up there.

The drama will be about upper crust high schoolers, so it really will be another Boys Before Flowers. There is one upside to all this though — one of my biggest pet peeves with writer Kim Eun-sook is the way she writes adults like they’re fifteen… which means maybe she’ll be perfectly suited to write a high school drama. It’s described as a trendy drama about rich high school students, and their loves and friendships. Yes, but wouldn’t it be fun to watch them fall in love with new people, like just once in a blue drama moon?

Heirs is planning for an October premiere on SBS.

I don't know why people are so unhappy. I actually like the casts so far. If you don't like, don't watch. I'm going to wait until it airs in October then make up my mind if I like the storyline/loveline or not. People are just so quick to judge.

Orrrrrrrrrrrr rather than quick to judge, some people like me have seen these two paired twice before already with less than desirable results. Thus, we are now expressing our discontent, mainly because we sat through the entirety of YFFM and their dead fish chemistry.

Of course, things can magically change the third time around, but why even have to take that chance when so many other new pairings can be made?

I could not say it better! I wish I never even began YFFM because of this bad pairing. Maybe PSH with LMH... JYH must be a real masochist. I think.

I'm not okay with this pairing; maaybe because I sat through hours watching him in both you're beautiful and you've fallen for me; and the vibe that I've gotten from both wasn't exactly electric~ so, yeah. I allow myself to be grumpypants when I read about this. Sigh~

0

I have to disagree with the "dead fish chemistry" They actually have good chemistry which they showed in You're Beautiful. Heartstrings had some issues with the story and how it played the characters out.

I'm excited to see them again because I can trust that I won't see the really stupid female/male combo that is just painful to watch with these main leads. Some drama's I literally have to skip the first two or three episodes and just read the recaps because the intros are just painful. Stars falling is a good example of that.

0

The popularity of the pairing in itself speaks for the huge chemistry between the two. Shinhye has the ability to look good with all costars. An article to this fact was actually published earlier this year with pictures of her with them (lee wan, JGS, JYH, YSY, LSG) and calling her queen of chemistry. She will be great with LMH too.

Don't they have a dating rumor? I'm not sure if they deny it, but it's like they're making everyone come onboard their ship lol.

me too! me too! when i read the headline, before reading the post, i was like, what's wrong with them together again? i like them together. she's really growing on me, and he's hot, what more could you ask for!?! the only thing i am iffy on, as far as the cast goes, is yong hwa as second lead. i'd much rather see him successful in love rather than being perfect yet end up brokenhearted.

aside from the cast, the plot kinda bothers me. when i read about that, that's when i had the feeling of "again, seriously"?? it sounds so redone to death, but i'm willing to watch and hope for the best, which is all we can ever really do in dramaland. b/c no matter how great a drama sounds, it can disappoint, and no matter how meh a show seems to be before broadcast, it can pleasantly surprise.

here's to pleasant surprises *

i like each of them, just not so much together (i thought they'd be adorable together when i watched you're beautiful, and then i watched you've fallen for me and i was like, "wait, no, i take it back~" but the drama gods weren't listening.) so i'm not terribly excited but i'm open-minded enough that i'm hoping they'll surprise me.

you can watch you've fallen for me if you want to see him successful in love with park shinhye, though.(:

And this is exactly why this show, just like BOF, will be a big hit - "hot" guys, "cute" girls, and a throwaway plot. For plenty of people out there, the eye candy is enough.

My only questions is, where is Psy and Dakota Fanning??? Dramafever promised me they would be there!!!!!!

🙋Hi Skelly! Was missing you. I seriously think that it's misleading to think that it's going to be another BOF because of the cast and the school/setting unless there is something else that I have overlooked. I base my case on what I know about the writer. I have a feeling that they will be more to the hot guys and cute girls. KES definitely has something already in place with just them in mind hence such an early casting to ensure their availability. There will be more than eye candy. Unless they really botch things up the least is an entertaining drama because of what's already in place.
Sorry cannot answer your question regarding PSY and Dakota due to lack of info about them.

LOL Maris, the Psy and Dakota Fanning comment referred to the Dramafever April Fool's announcement of "BOF2"

Her acting range is extremely limited, unexpressive. She often seems like she's in a low-grade zombie / horror film. She seems bland and unoriginal, and apparently doesn't have representation keeping her on track to expand professionally, if not creatively. Maybe she's just stalking or manipulating guy for some "personal drama"? Anyway she'll make a ton of money and so will he. Luckily there are other things to watch.

I agree about it. All her performances are the same thing. She is too worse kissing. Every teenagers love her because her performances are only for this people. She doesn't grow up like actress. Susy is younger and she is a better actress.

Woah, I never said I didn't like anything. I am just saying we've seen what they are like together both in the male lead role and in the second lead role already(To varied results). I don't know how to feel about them being cast together again since we've already seen them together multiple times.

Did I say I was unhappy about it or that I wouldn't give it a chance? No.

They could be amazing together and bring something new to the table, only time will tell. But I am allowed to express my concern about the paring and I'm sure i'm not the only one that has these concerns.

Yeah, you're not the only one.

I think for the people whom the pretty is enough, this drama raises no concerns. But if the pretty alone doesn't quite do it for you, then you naturally think Uh Oh.

I really enjoy Lee Min-ho and Park Shin-hye's acting AND their pretty, so right now it seems like JYH is the weak link. Here's hoping he proves me wrong and makes me fall in second lead love.

There has to be a reason for KES to go for LMH, PSH and JYH. No writer with her popularity will let any black spot appear on her reputation. They must be a good fit for what she has in her mind. I fully believe in that. For this reason I am so curious to see what happens in October. Lot of suspense and anticipation.
This is something that I could not have predicted in 1000 years. LMH and Shinhye.....yes but
Yonghwa in the same drama for the 3rd time in 4 years....difficult to assimilate considering the probabilities ....no matter how much I love there chemistry.

It's apparently "well known" in Korea media and entertainment circles that Yonghwa and Shinhye are dating, and have been for awhile. So, I don't find this news surprising at all. But, it's not YH taking advantage of SH, he doesn't need to. He's popular and successful in his own right without riding her coattails. Neither does she need to use him to boost her popularity.

I definitely agree with you. Fnc should let him appear in dramas wherein his co actors can help him most specially the senior actors. And not with someone who he starred with in 2 flopped dramas.

I like the path jonghyun, junshin and minhyuk are taking… Slowly but surely. Being in support roles somehow helps them develop and hone their acting skills and prepare them for future lead roles.

There were already rumours that they were dating but of course both have denied it an umpteeth time.

Seriously there pairing again is going to cause a storm among the fans. There are already haters for PSH in the JYH camp. And the legions of goguma fans supporting JYH with Seohyun after We got married is going to be really disapointed too.

I seriously dont know that the casting director is thinking.Did they have the same manager for acting roles and they were sold as a package?

I heard the rumor Jung Yong-hwa was going to be in this drama long before Park Shin-hye ever signed on. Once she did become the lead I have just been waiting for the confirmation that he signed on too, it was only a matter of time. This article did not surprise me on bit, in fact it took longer than I thought to hear he was officially in.

Really? I would actually not be surprised if this were the case (Jung Yong-hwa thinking about it before Park Shin-hye was attached) since he did cameo in A Gentleman's Dignity. I figure the writer likes C.N.Blue, lol. Waiting for her to try getting Min-hyuk and Jung-shin too.

As for watching the drama, I'll wait and see. Who knows, with that break he took from variety/music show appearances in 2012, he may have taken acting lessons too... or something? I'll put some hope on the writer for a well-written character and the director to make his acting work as well. If they can pull off something similar to the directing for Lee Jun-ki in Arang and the Magistrate (which gave him that intensity so many of us loved) even just a little, I'll probably be happy. (Although, that being said - I think Jun-ki has the experience necessary to make good use of a director's suggestions. I'm not sure how well a new actor/casual actor could do the same.)

A drama isn't just actors, so when something works or flops, more than one person probably deserves the credit/blame. I'll wait and see if the combined effort is enjoyable.

Everyone is so concerned about the repeat of PSH with JYH, but I find the LMH with JYH pairing more interesting. They are not two people I would have put together for potential bromance, so its going to be interesting to see how they get along on screen.

I am going into it positive. Even if it is a mash up of Boy Over Flower and You're Beautiful, I loved both dramas. It would not be something to take seriously, it would be a drama you watch for giggles and I like that.

Actually I was hoping they would sort of make a drama like this. I wanted LMH with his two besties Jung Il-woo and Kim Bum on screen together, and I did want PSH as lead. This was just the perfect drama I came up with in my head. Well, I got two of the actors I wanted, and JYH is my LOVE so I will never complain about him being in anything. There are still two boy spot left to be cast, so let me start my rain dances and finger crossing now.

Heartstrings was a college setting - that was a pretty resounding flop when it aired.
A college setting done well was 'What's Up'.

Frankly, I see more of a problem for Lee Min Ho here with this type of drama. City Hunter placed him perfectly to jump solidly to total leading man territory and then his lackluster acting in Faith really pushed him backwards. If Heirs doesn't do well, it's going to have WAY more negative impact for him rather than Yonghwa being cast with PSH.
Plus, I really don't want to see LMH cast as a high school student - he doesn't look that age anymore and neither do Yonghwa or PSH.

As much as I like LMH, PSH and even YGH, this drama really pushes them a step back again from transitioning to more adult leading roles. I'm hoping that this drama doesn't have the high school setting throughout the entire storyline (maybe it transitions to when they graduate or something) or it takes place when they are older with significant flashback scenes (like in 49 Days) or something.

Not too thrilled to see YGH and PSH paired up again... they really haven't shown good on screen chemistry... The casting is probably done so they can market this drama abroad (like to Japan), since all three of them are pretty famous in other Asian countries. I wouldn't be surprised if the second female lead turns out to be some idol (like from Kara or something).

Completely agree that they shouldn't be cast as high school students.. There are plenty of up and comers for high school stories like this, without having to cast actors who have been playing adults. Barring flashback scenes, this really shouldn't be done >.<

"WHY HIGH SCHOOL?? WHY NO COLLEGE STUDENTS?? REALLY WHY??!!!"

I echo your cry of despair and longing. :)

And I'd heard previously that this was a college setting. So that's the breaking news -- that it's yet another high school drama -- that has me sad. :(

(Seriously though. What is the block on college-dramas? There've been like... 2 that I know of. Do Korean college students not shenanigan? I don't understand...)

UGH! High School...please god they are not students! So unbelievable. I agree with everyone else...COLLEGE at least! This show will leave itself wide open for ridicule of the worst sort if they make a bunch of mid 20 year olds try to look like high school students! How gullible do they expect the audience to be? We are not, thank you very much!

So true and another thing that bothers me.
These 20 something year olds are supposed to be in higschool and doing stuff that are obviously not very high-school like so why not as well make em in college? ie. gossip girl. Trying to appeal to the younger generation i guess.

Why? They want to live up their dating rumor again?

And there are so many young star their age, like Go Kyung pyo, for example, ( I actually want to write Kim Woobin, but he's busy with Friends 2 ), why Yonghwa?

The good part about them is that they stay true to themselves first remaining unaffected with the rumors. Really commendable considering the onslaught of the articles in the recent past.
As regards to GKP and KWB. I agree that they fit well but we don't know what's cooking in KES 's mind. Maybe, there still is some casting left and we get to see them or others. There are still few months left.

Dramaland is so persistent, huh? I was kinda excited with Lee Min-ho/Park Shin-hye pairing, but with Yonghwa as second lead, it feels like YAB all over again.

And I don't even like YAB -_-

As a fan of both I actually oppose this. I cannot accept that YH will be the second lead and third wheel again. And if this two really in a relationship then it will ruin lee minho and PSH chemistry in the drama. I dont jniw how to digest this news. Its actually bitter sweet.
Dang! YongHwa really love Shinhye to make him join this drama. Haha

I hate the fact that kdramas always have the first lead, second lead formula it's so annoying. Why can't we just have a storyline where the audience can't predict who will end up together change things up. I love Park Shin Hye, Lee Min Ho and Jung Yong Hwa <3 All three of them aren't the greatest actors but hey their all cute as heck lol. I am actually looking forward to this.

i guess the only one that broke this formula as far as i can remember is Hotelier. Bae Yong Joon was the 2nd lead, and he is with the female lead

I guess she likes to keep her boyfriend employed in acting roles. LMH looks way too old to be a high school student. This is going to be another lee min ho drama I can't finish isn't it?

Yes Yong why why why.....If Writer Kim wanted him , I guess he would think it wouldnt be wise to turn her down. But still I'm disappointed. I'm hoping he would just concentrate on his music.

Anyway, their shippers gonna have a field day. Expect wedding invitations soon. ^^

@mel Haha, so it happens to you too? When BOF first came out, I couldn't bear to watch the painfully and awfully slow acting of LMH and GHS, not to mention the plot too (TW version still rocks the best!). Then when Personal Preference came out, gave up in ep 3. Then when City Hunter came out, gave up by the time I hit ep 14. Then when Faith came out, gave up on ep 5. Sigh. The fate of LMH on the small screen for me. :P

Actually, I just cannot understand the "bashing" that goes each time a casting with popular artists are announced. These are all acting according to the characters that are scripted for them. They just bring them alive according to the director's, writer's and their own abilities. Without even seeing a single episode how can some people go after the cast with their extreme viewpoints, assumptions and judgements.
I would just wait and see for at least the first episode to be aired. Maybe, its just thinking aloud for many but looking from the actors/actresses viewpoint it must be tough to bear with the extreme opinions.

Wonderful statement! I'd give you a round of applause if I wasn't typing, and I think more people need to at least consider this viewpoint.

I mean, drama fans can't really be like this can they? Such extreme opinions on such little info.

Thanks for feeling the same way. It's just that when I see young people trying to find their path in life with hard work and effort, I feel they need to be supported by constructive criticism at times and encouragement on others.....definitely not bashing to kill their spirits, motivations and will to do better. In this case, they have not even lifted a finger or spoken a word except shown their enthusiasm for working with this writer. Do they honestly deserve some of the uncalled for stuff?

was this article put up to bash yonghwa? give DB more credit than that
