Drama Casting & News
Kim Woo-bin in Heirs, rejoice!
by | May 14, 2013 | 210 Comments

SBS is really going all-out in casting Heirs (or He Who Wears the Crown, Endure Its Weight: Heirs), with all the hot young stars it’s drawn into its casting net: The latest is none other than Kim Woo-bin (School 2013, Vampire Idol, White Christmas), which should make some people very happy. He’ll join Lee Min-ho and Park Shin-hye, our two leads, and add even more pretty to the mix.

(I recall reading comments after the last casting tease about Choi Jin-hyuk that the only downside to Choi being added was that dreams of Kim Woo-bin joining were dashed. Well, let this be a lesson to you all: Never accept an either-or situation when you can have BOTH. Greediness is happiness!)

Granted, there is the caveat that Choi Jin-hyuk is yet unconfirmed: The last we heard was that he was “considering favorably.” One more possibility currently being floated is f(x) idol Krystal, who is reportedly working out her schedule and in talks with drama producers.

I don’t have a strong opinion about Krystal, but at least I don’t actively dislike her or find her a horrible actress. I never really loved her character in High Kick 3, and it took practically 100 episodes for me to warm to her, and yes she does have this aloofness to her personality that can be off-putting. Despite all that, I’m okay with her joining this cast; she’s got screen presence and is age-appropriate and isn’t our lead, so that’s fine.

Kim Woo-bin has worked with this writer (Kim Eun-sook) before in A Gentleman’s Dignity, where he played a high school troublemaker (before then playing another high school troublemaker in School 2013), so the casting makes sense. He’s got loads of charisma and onscreen intensity and really beautifully odd features (hottest alien vampire rockstar ever). He (and Lee Jong-seok) carried the charm of School 2013, even though when you think about it Kim Woo-bin’s role in that was actually quite small—he was a catalyst and an object, but not really an active player, but still commanded your attention. He is currently working out final contract details.

Heirs purports to be a Gossip Girl–esque trendy drama set in a high school populated by the uber-rich, and with writer Kim at the helm we can expect lots of fast-flying banter and glossy characters. Sometimes Kim’s style works for me, sometimes I hate it with the burning fire of a thousand venereal diseases. I know which one I’m hoping for this time out.

Heirs is being prepped as an October drama on SBS.

        • 1.1.3.1 zfih

          Still… I love LMH with a passion but I cannot see why he’s accepting a sameish drama that he has done last time just with different characters.
          Hope for my sanity and many others it turns out well

    • 2.5 Rashell

      OMG…Lee Min Ho, Choi Jin Hyuk and Kim Woo Bin in a drama together? I don’t know that squee covers it. This can’t possibly be real, right?

      • 2.5.1 Ahsoka

        Lol a squee doesn’t cover it – my fangirl heart feels like it’s gonna explode <3333333

    • 2.6 Russe12

  3. noernov

    • 3.1 Ennayra

      I know!!!! It’s so hard to believe that we’re going to get both of them in the same drama!

    • 3.2 cheekbones

      I was so giddy reading the title it’s ridiculous :D.

      I wonder if somebody influential in k-dramaland actually reads dramabeans comments. Hmm……

      Your love for your Oppa is adorable :) Whenever I see you tweet that word, I know it’s KWB you’re talking about!

      • 7.1.1 anna

        Lol are confused girlfriday with gummimochi? I never know about GF love for KWB. :D

        • 7.1.1.1 JoAnne

          You could be right there…I think it’s Gummi with KWB, and GF is referring to TOP when she tweets about Oppa?

          • 7.1.1.1.1 gummimochi

            Both Heads and I love Kim Woo-bin. Heads also loves TOP, and GF has Puppy. =)

          • 7.1.1.1.2 anna

            What gummimochi said above! I always associated GF with Lee Seung-gi aka puppy :)

    omg…omg…omg..omg..omg..omg… Yes!!

    That’s all I can contribute in this

    SANTA CAME EARLY

  10. 10 Thatgirl

    Wait… So he’s replacing Jung Yonghwa? =D OMGomGOMGOmGOMgLEEMINHO&KIMWOOBINoMGOmgOMGOMGOmGOMGOMGOm!

    • 10.1 Celia

      If Yes then I will thank DramaGod everyday for making it happen.

    • 10.2 skelly

      The dramagods are fickle. Yes, they Please you by casting WB – but then, they will laugh at your despair when the writers give him nothing to do but moon about after Park Shin Hye, as the Doomed Second Lead.
      I don’t like PSH that much now – if this happens, I will (totally irrationally) like her even less. I want him to get the girl, okay show? Dramagods, are you listening?

      • 10.2.1 Maris

        You would like KWB to get the girl even when you don’t like her? 😄 No worries! I don’t think this drama will have triangles etc. because i have a feeling that there will be different love lines between 3 or 4 pairs.

  11. 11 Mystisith

    Well, this casting is shaping up nicely, for the male part at least. As for Kristal, I don’t know her.
    We also don’t know what part those 2 will play exactly. Just thinking that the script is being written right now: Vertigo. 5 months and counting for the premiere… #PleaseBeGood

    • 11.1 KDaddict

      LMH, Woo Bin, CJH! All I need to knw. Thank you!
      Who cares abt Krystal? She was bad in Hi-K 3; her char was horrible, her acting didn’t make it better.
      I can just replay LMH, KWB and CJH and FF the rest if she is cast.

      @Mysti, Isn’t Aug 3 moths away? 8 – 5 = 3, no? ;)

      • 11.1.1 Mystisith

        August is not what I’m reading here (bummer!!): October is. :)

        • 11.1.1.1 KDaddict

          Ah, it wasn’t that you couldn’t count. It was me who couldn’t read! ;) Too excited knowing those 3 guys will appear in a drama together!

    • 11.2 pogo

      Krystal wasn’t bad in High Kick 3, granted I only watched the first 20 episodes but she seemed fairly natural, even if her character was annoying (and supposed to be).

      I personally find it amusing that she was playing Lee Jong-suk’s sister in HK3, and is now in a show with LJS’s School 2013 BFF.

      • 11.2.1 skelly

        Just another crappy idol actress. Thick as fleas, and just as difficult to get rid of.

        • 11.2.1.1 pogo

          Hey, the crappy idol actress is her sister – at least I can look at Krystal onscreen without wondering which teleprompter she’s reading her lines from.

          • 11.2.1.1.1 skelly

            She has a sister? Is this like Wicked Witch of the East and Wicked Witch of the West?

          • 11.2.1.1.2 pogo

            skelly – she’s the younger sister of Jessica from SNSD – and trust me, she’s a positive thespian compared to her.

          • 11.2.1.1.3 skelly

            But she’s improving! Every day! Someday she will even be able to cry Real Tears when it’s called for…

  12. 12 wits

    Double yey! *arms flailing *jumping up and down. Thanks be to the dramagods!!!

    But is he the second lead though? Replacing Jung Yong Hwa? Prob’ly not eh? Now then….crossing all my fingers , arms and legs for Jung Il Woo and I’ll be in 7th heaven.

    • 12.1 kdramapedia

      *joins in on crossing everything that can be crossed*

  13. 13 liz

    Oh shit, might have second syndrome here!

    Will check this for him and CJH!

    Omg, omg, I already see the crazyness taking over DB drama year awards… yup, after Moon/Sun there comes another BOF to get people crazy.

  14. 14 Nanaki

    This writer drives me so far up the wall I decided I wouldn’t watch Heirs. Then the Choi Jin-hyuk casting announcement came and I began questioning my decision. And now this. I no longer have a choice. Fine. I’ll watch it. I’LL WATCH IT.

    • 14.1 Ash

      Augh, seriously. I’ve been smugly apathetic about all of the news re: this drama because there was NO WAY I was going to watch it.

      …Yeah, I’m going to watch it.

      Dammit.

      • 14.1.1 anais

        Ditto. I wasn’t going to watch it even for LMH but now with CJH and KWB, I’ll have to put up with this writer.

    • 14.2 eternalfive

      I know right, I didn’t even know if I was going to watch this (tbh, I don’t like PSH as an actress as much as everyone else seems to…) but now…YES DAMMIT I AM GOING TO WATCH IT OMGOMGOMGGGGG!!!!!! Currently dying with happiness and fangirl feeeels uuugh. XD

      I don’t really like Krystal though…but oh well, it’s KIM WOO BIN. Kim Woo Bin makes everything okay.

    • 14.3 alua

      Yeah, I was already resolved not to watch this because the two leads aren’t a particular draw for me and Jonghwa’s casting was sorta the nail in the coffin. Then he withdrew. Still don’t particularly care for the two leads, but Woo Bin!

      I will watch only for Woo Bin. And if it turns out a mess of a drama or boring (nothing saying it will, just thinking Faith, Big and other disappointments), I’ll just watch his scenes!

      • 14.3.1 alua

        Oh…. and I’ll watch for Choi Jin-hyuk if he does end up in it!

      • 14.3.2 merrie18

        I have faith in Woobin and sidusHQ (his management company), the project(s) they choose should be good. Well, I’m going to watch everything Woobin is in and support him with all my heart.

    • 14.4 Chimera

      I don’t like this writer… I don’t like this writer…

      Lee Min -freakin’- HO!

      I’m still not watching this… I’m still not watching this…

      Park Shin Hye (!)

      I still refuse to watch this… I still refuse to watch this…

      Choi Jin Hyuk

      Why are you doing this to me, dramagods, why?

      KIM WOO BIN!!!!!!!!!!!

      NOT WATCH–

      Dammit. I give up. I HAVE TO WATCH THIS. *SQUEEEEE*

      • 14.4.1 alua

        Yeppers…

      • 14.4.2 Ashley

        Wow, you hit it on the head. Although is it bad I wish the second lead and the first lead would switch spots?!

        • 14.4.2.1 Chimera

          Nope. Here’s to hoping KWB gets a love interest of his own. ‘Cause, otherwise, the second lead syndrome? Would not be good for our hearts. At all. ;-)

          • 14.4.2.1.1 skelly

            Same here, I feel like I am the rope in a tug of war:
            LMH, not that great an actor but he is OK – that’s a plus.
            writer of the hated AGD – that’s a minus.
            PSH and her lack of fire – that’s a minus (plus, I’m tired of her)
            CJH, fresh off Gu and on a roll – that’s a plus
            High School dramas=light and stupid – that’s a minus
            KWB and his charisma – that’s a plus
            KWB as Doomed Second Lead – that’s a minus

            I am going to have to watch, but I am prepared to hate it. And fangirls ALWAYS ask, ‘why do you watch it if you hate it so much?’ Well, if you don’t wade through the minuses, how are you ever going to enjoy the pluses? There is no such thing as a perfect drama, and to wait for one means watching nothing.

  15. 15 Revy

    A thousand yes for this

  16. 16 ajj

    With Yonghwa out I was disappointed but now Woo Bin is in and this is so much better..
    I cant wait!!!

    • 16.1 Ashley

      I am the same! I love Yong-hwa, and could not wait for my daily dose of him even though he can’t act, so I was sad about his departure. But with Woo-bin….. I KNOW I will suffer the worst second lead syndrome known to man!!!!!! Bring on the crappy teenage angsty romance… cause this cast rocks!

      <3 <3 <3 <3 <3 <3 <3 <3 <3 <3 <3 <3 <3 <3 <3 <3 <3

      • 16.1.1 ajj

        IKR..I’ve never been this excited about a drama before..

  17. 17 hpn88

    ooooohh now this i can get behind. he’s not exactly the greatest actor, but he has this je ne sais quoi…actually, i do sais quoi (he’s hot).

    • 17.1 merrie18

      Huh? Did you watch School 2013? Woobin’s acting was top-notch! To me, he’s the best young actor I’ve seen since Kim Soohyun from Dream High 2011.

      • 17.1.1 tamagoxyaki

        I watched school 2013 and his acting did not impress me actually,lee jong seok did a waay better with his role tbh.

    • 17.2 :(

      y’know, sometimes the shallowness of this site’s readers really gets to me. doesn’t help that the same people turn around and hate constantly on young female actors that “add nothing but cute” to dramas after squeeing incoherently about male leads doing the same

      • 17.2.1 Fasr

        not just this site, it’s everywhere. the girls will always get more crap. i’ve given up feeling angry about it and just expect it. which is even sadder when i think about it. we’re talking k-drama here. it’s not exactly deep stuff attracting high-brow audience only.

        anyway, i’m one of woobin’s biggest fan and i see that he’s not a great actor. he has good moments but overall he just gets a passing grade. good thing is from his interviews, he knows he’s not good yet! so hopefully he can improve.

      • 17.2.2 skelly

        Er… did you read the posts when they were going to cast Jung Yong-hwa?

  18. 18 raindrops1

    Yesssss!!!!!!!! I can’t wait. Awesome news.

  19. 19 Sara

    So glad it’s him and not Jung Yonghwa.

    Now I’m crossing my fingers that it’s not Krystal. Sorry but she is not very likable. Even if that’s how she naturally is, and it’s not like she has to be fake and bubbly, but Krystal has always rubbed me the wrong way.

    • 19.1 Hazel

      It’s interesting how many people just automatically dislike her because of that aloof aura, whereas I think a male idol/actor would be called mysterious or cool for behaving in the exact same way. He certainly wouldn’t be followed around by the word ‘bitch.’

      And she’s actually pretty dorky/hyper when you watch f(x)’s reality shows.

      Just my two cents. :-)

      • 19.1.1 Sara

        No, there are plenty of male actors that I don’t find likable.

        I said “not likable” – I never threw out the word “bitch”…Other actresses I find not likable? Shin Se Kyung, Nam Gyuri, Lee Da Hae.

        And there are actually a lot of female actresses that are chic or cool that ARE likable. Don’t be so offended if there’s something about Krystal that rubs me the wrong way. Is everyone supposed to see what you see about her?

        • 19.1.1.1 Hazel

          ….I wasn’t attacking you personally, nor was my tone hostile, so I don’t understand the defensiveness.

          I was talking about how people in general view Krystal, and whenever her image and personality come up, the words ‘aloof,’ ‘unlikeable,’ and ‘bitch’ seem to be used and understood pretty much interchangeably – she’s been called a bitch incessantly primarily because of her aloof image (because the one accusation they level against her could also be applied to Sulli who doesn’t receive the same abuse). Unlike many male stars who have aloof images, there seems to be more of an unwillingness to see past the surface with Krystal and understood the dorky/funny side of her personality than there would be with many male actors/idols. Just something I’ve noticed and used your comment as an opportunity to address. :-/

  20. 20 Waiting

    I am ALL IN…especially if Choi Jin Hyuk joins in.

    [must join in, must join in, must join in...]

    [Ahem] Sear Santa…read above…I’ll be the one you will be receiving early Christmas wishes from starting today. Tell the elves I am sorry for the extra work my letters will cause but it is for a good reason. Oh yeah, don’t forget to tell Mrs. Claus…she likes this cast, too. Don’t be jealous.

  21. 21 kdramapedia

    I love that the moral of the story is that greediness is happiness, lol!

    Only one thing to add: Is it October yet?

    • 21.1 Waiting

      Oktoberfest!!!

  22. 22 whilethemusiclasts

    Definitely tuning in to this drama now. *runsoffscreaming*

  23. 23 crazedlu

    REJOOOOOICE!

    but dude, i’m still not digging a high school premise for LEE MINHO. in the back of my mind, i’m still going, da frig is lee minho doing in this drama? dude just DOES NOT look high school AT ALL. he never has! everyone else still kinda passes. well, not choi jinhyuk, of course. ha.

    i actually have never found myself digging any of kim eunsook’s work, so i’ll be tuning in for kim woobin. hopefully the drama is good.

    • 23.1 maldita

      IKR?! I love Lee Minho like no other, but that oppa of mine is not baby-faced and barely even pulled off being a high school student in BOF 4 years ago.

    • 23.2 Mar

      This is the ONLY casting so far that is remotely high school cast worthy. I love me LMH, don’t get me wrong, but cannot figure this drama.

    • 23.3 merrie18

      Yeah, I wonder why Lee Min Ho is going to be a high school student again, especially in a drama with the settings that sound very similar to BOF in which he starred 4 years ago. I thought he had decided to focus on adult characters a long time before.

      Seeing Kim Woobin on the small screen as a high school student again this year wasn’t expected to me either. His previous student roles were very good (I fell in love with Park Heungsoo from School 2013, he was beyond awesome <3), then he was cast to play a 28-year-old gangster in the highly-anticipated movie Friend 2, I seriously thought he wouldn't wear the school uniform again, let alone this early. Oh well, I'm still really happy to watch him in a new drama as one of the leads, though I'm praying and praying and praying that his character wouldn't be stuck in a silly love triangle.

      • 23.3.1 pogo

        ….I’d add Park Shin-hye to that list as well, her career has been all over the map in terms of the age of the characters she played but I’m surprised she chose this after portraying a decidedly adult character in FBND, I thought she was transitioning into older roles too after playing college-age characters (YAB, Heartstrings)

        • 23.3.1.1 Mar

          Yes, exactly, it’s not just LMH’s casting I was saying wtf about lol, PSH and Choi Jin-huk too. All three are beyond portraying high school students.

          • 23.3.1.1.1 pogo

            Mar – well, unlike LMH and CJH she, at least, can pass for a teenager despite the recent more ‘mature’ image. But it’s definitely a headscratcher move for me, unless Heirs is the next BBF (with a better script and less annoying characters)

        • 23.3.1.2 Maris

          Yes, I also thought she was heading towards maturer roles. Really would like to know her reasons other than KES. Personally, PSH can still just pass for a high schooler. KWB might too…a question mark there but am really interested to see how LMH will fare as a student.

  24. 24 anna

    AAFJDKSAJFDKSDSKLSD!!! Oh my heart. I think I forgot to breathe for a few seconds. SO HAPPY HE’S BACK ON MY TV SCREEN (ok laptop but w/e)! WITH LEE MIN HO! OMFG. I’m so spazzy right now it’s crazy.

    • 24.1 anna

      Oh, October :( I thought it was July for some reason? Why so long? Now that I’ve calm down a little, Kim Eun-sook tho. And is he going to play another BAD BOY type? If he plays the Chuck Bass type, it’s over and out for me. IDC how much I love you, but I will stand for that.

      • 24.1.1 anna

        I will *NOT ^^;

  25. 25 canxi

    Oh my! Awesome! Love seeing him pop up in more and more dramas! The White Christmas cast is really moving along nicely in their careers :)

  26. 26 Daisy

    Hmm I wonder what character he will be like?

  27. 27 shailee

    hope Choi Jin Hyuk joins too!! and my dream casting will be complete!! right now it’s almost perfect (minus Krystal, since I didn’t watch High Kick)
    HOT GUMIHO PAPA NEEDS TO CONFIRM ALREADY!! :D

  28. 28 POPSMISSION

    Aaargh!!! I have no idea how I feel about this at all!!!

    Is he the second lead?
    This might actually kill me. I have no idea where my loyalties lie…..

    How will I survive having my affections torn between Lee Min-ho and Kim Woobin… ?

    ….I meant Park shin-Hye’s affections obviously…not mine…..yes that is what I meant.

  29. 29 Hugepuffball

    UGH!
    NEED THIS DRAMA NOW! I hope with all my heart and soul that this drama rocks, because if the storyline is good, then I’m pretty sure I’ll be in angsty heaven

  30. 30 swol

    …still SQUEEEEEEEEEIIINGGGG!!! kyah!

  31. 31 kfangurl

    AHHHHH!!!! Kim! Woo! Bin! ♥ ♥ ♥

    This is the best thing I’ve heard about the casting for heirs to date!! My interest in this show has just shot from fairly meh up to dizzying heights! >.<

    LOVED, LOVED, LOVED him in School 2013, and would watch him again in ANYTHING, in a heartbeat! And now I CAN! Eeeee!!! ♥

    • 31.1 dewaanifordrama

      I guess it’s just a Woo Bin day for you ^^ I know that for sure I will have second lead syndrome…wait, I’ll be too busy crushing on Choi Jin Hyuk *crosses fingers in hopes he really will sign*

      • 31.1.1 kfangurl

        Well. I have YOU to thank, for helping to make this a Kim Woo Bin day! :)

        I’ve still got the YT page open, so that I can rewatch the vid at any time of the day. Easy access to a shot of bromantic goodness is just good practice ;)

        • 31.1.1.1 dewaanifordrama

          hahaha – you know, I totally understand the need for a Kim Woo Bin and Lee Jung Seok fix.

  32. 32 Agatha

    Anybody else thinks that Kim Woo-bin looks like the new Spoke, or is it just me?

    • 32.1 anna

      Spock? Zachary Quinto? I always thought he’s a mix between Quinto and Benedict. ^^;

      • 32.1.1 Agatha

        Yes I meant Spock or Zachary Quinto. They do have this just odd beauty to them right?

  33. 33 Meiyih

    the thing is if I see LMH in school uniform again, the song “almost paradise” automatically plays in my brain — horror! If KimEunSok writer-nim drives me up the wall again – it’ll be a fatal blow :(

    buuut I can’t bear to not see KimWooBin & ChoiJinHyuk .. sigh guess I hav to risk my brain cells for the pretty … nothing is free in tis world ..

    OMG…..my dtr totally loves this guy and I loved him in AGD and School 2013…he’s got the look, the charm, the height and he’s proven to be a great dramatic actor….

    i am totally totally totally loving this news release!!!

    thank you, javabeans!!!

    this is great news indeed!

    The male cast for this drama will be ridiculously tall. Lmh is around 185, and kwb is even taller.

    The concept of the drama is a bit eyeroll worthy though. I hated the original gossip girl and I definitely do not need a Korean version. There’s only so much rich teenager problems I can sit through
    (and seriously does lmh have nothing better offered to him? He already did this type of drama with bof)

      True. True. I’m only going to tune in for the actors while hoping that they’re just doing a really bad job of expressing the plot to us. Fingers crossed!

    EPIC! I just hope it’s not Krystal. If their getting an Idol, might as well go for Jung Eunji. At least she’s a fit (somehow).

    Can’t wait for October anymore.

    • 36.1 helloyou

      As a huge fan of Eunji, I don’t think she’s a good fit for the role (if it’s the what that I think it will be). I see it as a Blair-type 2nd lead role, all bitchy and catty and aloof and rich…which is why I see them wanting Krystal for it.

      Eunji’s a great idol actress but I just can’t see her pulling off rich bitch (I love her but…average looks)…if it’s the sympathetic friend type 2nd lead though, then cast her cast her!

        Blair wans`t second lead!

    “Greediness is happiness” I agree!

    dramagods are generous with us lately, so I promise to be a good girl and will watch this drama diligently :D

    YAY! YES! YAHOO! Now, my anticipation for this drama has exploded times a gazillion. Oh, man, this is gonna make it hard to root for Lee Min-ho’s character. Unless Kim Woo-bin plays an assy character. But, hopefully not. I can see him as the Chuck Bass of this show. And Chuck was my favorite character on Gossip Girl! So totally can’t wait for October!

    I’m not too sure about Krystal though. She’s a great singer, and I love f(x)’s music, but she has a long way to go before becoming as great an actress as Park Shin-hye.

    I really hope Choi Jin-hyuk joins the cast, too.

    this is the best news ever… when the first news of heirs came out, i was already excited coz of LMH & PSH… and with Woo Bin added, i just died right away…

    *October, why are you far away?*

  41. 41 Jade

    Omg this is like an early birthday present for me. Thank you drama gods!!!!! I wasn’t set on checking this drama out but with Woo Binnie signing on, I’ll be glued to my laptop in October, not that im complaining. So much pretty going around!!!! Ahhh! Can’t wait for this ♥

  42. 42 denise

    somehow i much rather have him be the lead. soo sad. a supporting. i guess i have to settle.

    • 42.1 pogo

      My sentiments exactly, kdrama pairings get repeated so rarely and I don’t actually have any hope that Woobie will pull a Yonghwa and then get to star in a drama with PSH as the actual lead and not the second lead :/

      (also I’ve seen her and Lee Min-ho’s CF for Etude House, and the chemistry was decidedly meh. And for those who say she doesn’t have chemistry with anyone/you can’t tell from a CF, the CF series she did for the same brand with Jang Geun-seok, even before You’re Beautiful, were positively crackling)

      • 42.1.1 skelly

        I hope WB doesn’t get paired with PSH. She’s so sexless. But then, this is a high school drama so there won’t really be any sparks flying, anyway. We will get a chaste kiss somewhere along the line, probably with the heroine’s eyes wide open in shock and surprise. OMO! I just got kissed! Does he really like me?
        WB is still in this zone, and PSH seems perpetually stuck there, but I still can’t believe LMH is going back to high school.

        • 42.1.1.1 pogo

          I wouldn’t call her sexless, no more so than most kdrama heroines, anyway – she has chemistry with most of her leading men in that I actually feel interested in seeing their characters interact/they don’t bore me, even if I know the kiss scene will be killed by kdrama convention (and FBND avoided that with its final kiss).

          But her and Lee Min-ho…… are not among those pairings. It’s not like he always has the greatest chemistry with his leading ladies either (there is a reason why about 75% of the fanfic in the Boys Before Flowers category is about two tertiary characters – Kim Bum and Sim So-eun had chemistry that the leads just couldn’t muster)

        • 42.1.1.2 haha

          sexless? seriously? just because the girl doesn’t want to kiss back? LOL fans these days and their definitions

          • 42.1.1.2.1 skelly

            It’s not just her mouth. Her whole body is stiff or at least still. I mean, she actually lifted her hand once and it was seen as a major step forward. The guys always have to do all the heavy lifting.
            Her expression is pleasant and neutral. She can portray interest, she can show that she likes or admires a person, but it is as if the body is not involved, at all. And I am trying to remember a show (I am not counting CFs, they have different rules) where she wasn’t modestly and conservatively dressed.
            She is pleasant and comfortable and she cries nicely, but I never get any deeper and darker emotions from her. Maybe she is too young yet, maybe she is still wrapped in cotton wool and hasn’t had to experience them for herself, maybe she’s cannily staying in the space that makes people happy, the space where the viewers want a nice young girl to be. I mean, can you imagine PSH getting drunk, jumping a guy in an elevator, plotting revenge? I sure can’t.
            And that’s nice, it’s a good space to be in, I wish there were at least one American actress who was like that; but it doesn’t make her the next Sarah Bernhardt and it doesn’t mean I wouldn’t like to see her move on and expand her range.

            @skelly –
            I mean, can you imagine PSH getting drunk, jumping a guy in an elevator, plotting revenge? I sure can’t.

            I used to feel that way about Yoon Eun-hye, and then I watched I Miss You, where she’s a bitter, angry mess through the first half of her performance. I do like it when someone surprises me in a good way, and I feel like PSH has been holding out on us for her image – I suspect she will get there in time, too.

          • 42.1.1.2.3 skelly

            I hope you are right, pogo, I’d really like to see her stretch herself.

  43. 43 MariD

    What!!!!!! Whattt!!!’ The feels!!! I I I I’m so happy I might be crying…

  44. 44 Divyrus

    Please don’t be like BOF. Please don’t be like GOssip Girl. Please have a heart ad soul.
    Please LMH, don’t make me hate another one of your dramas.
    Pretty please.
    This is gonna be my prayer until the drama airs.

    • 44.1 pogo

    it's not bcause she is idol, but her acting is just so-so…

    my suggestion for 2nd LF:
    -Kim So Eun
    -Jung So Min
    -UEE
    -Jang Eun Ji
    -Park Eun Bin
    -Park Ha Sun

    • 48.1 Phemmy

    • 48.2 rienzza

      I second you…i want Kim So Eun, Jung So Min or UEE…:)

  49. 49 Bengbeng

    CJH and Woo-bin seems to have the same features. I wonder if they will play brothers.

    this drama is full of happiness for the fans. can’t wait to watch it.
