Moon Chae-won offered lead in Green Scalpel
by | May 29, 2013 | 146 Comments

Ooh. Suddenly interested in Green Scalpel, although Moon Chae-won isn’t yet confirmed; she’s only said to be considering the drama. Still, she adds a dash of interest to the medical series starring Joo-won as an autistic savant who’s a surgical genius with the personality of a grade-schooler.

The role Moon Chae-won is up for is of a pediatric surgeon named Cha Yoon-seo, which should offer up an interesting dynamic between her and the lead. Cha Yoon-seo chooses to become a doctor after volunteering in a children’s cancer ward in high school, and with her hard work and brains she becomes an associate professor at a relatively young age. She’s got an easy-going personality with a tomboyish nature, which is a bit of a departure but also totally up her alley. Moon may have played chic and steely in Nice Guy and portrayed a proud princess in The Princess’s Man, but she’s got the ability to play approachable and artless as well.

Plus, while age is but a number in real-life romance, I do think it’s more interesting to give the hero a potential love interest whose age disparity is on an emotional level without also being reflected in their real ages. Were this a noona relationship where the heroine is older both physically and mentally, that would just feel like too much power imbalance for comfort. (Note: The drama description does not promise romance. However, you don’t cast Joo-won and Moon Chae-won and then ignore romance, do you? I’d be happy with a romance-less story of human bonding and relationships, but I’m not sure dramaland really knows how to do that yet.)

Well, let’s hope that Moon Chae-won accepts the offer, ’cause I love her and find her one of her generation’s more compelling actresses. Also, she keeps improving from project to project, which is a good sign in any actor. Also also, I’ve only ever liked Joo-won with one of his leading ladies (UEE) and found that the relationships greatly suffered when there wasn’t that spark. (Jin Se-yeon was very green next to him, and Choi Kang-hee was never paired with him in any drama or ever shall be, the end.) Fingers crossed that these two will have it.

Green Scalpel will follow Shark and premiere in August.

    If she is going to be in it I’m watching for sure. I missed her and she is one of my favorite actress both sageuks and modern.

    • 1.1 Annie

      I really don’t want to be so squicked out by something she’s in though… and I thought she outgrew Candy roles (if you read her character description, she’s supposed to a righteous doctor who wants to change the world, yada yada yada. I’m sure that all goes out the window once she becomes the target of the male lead’s fixation) :-((((

      • 1.1.1 Kiara

        I know, I know I haven’t even read her character description yet so thank you.

      • 1.1.2 Jillia

        Please trust MCW… she never chooses a bad script. ๐Ÿ™‚ Well.. except for “It’s okay Daddy’s girl”.

        • Kgrl

          That drama wasn’t likely due to her own choosing. Lols, it was more a management call with a deal for a drama filled with rookie idols-turned-actors. Or she wouldn’t have been so keen to switch management after that drama. Great to see you here, Jillia!

          • bluez

            Actually, that was her very first drama with her new (and current agency), MS Team. It was also her first lead drama, so yes, don’t think she had much say on that

          • Jillia

            Annyeong @Kgrl! ๐Ÿ˜€ Ah thank you so much. I wasn’t following the news regarding “It’s okay Daddy’s girl” and Moon Chae Won at that time, so I didn’t know it was the decision of her management. ๐Ÿ™‚

            And yes I agree, we really need more details about her character and hopefully some development, so she won’t be a small female lead. ๐Ÿ˜€

          • Jayden

            Jillia, Kgrl, whee! *big hugs* I’m so thrilled about this! Can’t wait to see MCW on screen again.

        • Naugh

          I agree with you…bcoz this recent year MCW really Best of the BEST actress in Korea..It’s not only about her management decision.,but also on herself..Its either the script was good or not.,it’s all depend on herseft..I’m not really interest in MEdical typey of drama.,and not a big fan of Joo Won…,but seriously.,If the drama got Moon Chae Won as the leading actress then,that drama is a MUST WATCH MUST HITS…

          • bluez

            Please try not to exaggerate about being the best cause our Chae Won has plenty room for improvements and she herself is very aware of that ๐Ÿ™‚

          • zfih

            To tell the truth I didn’t like her in Nice Guy, but that is the only drama I have watched of her. And not even completely so most likely too soon to judge.
            Hopefully it is better that the drama that shall not be said or whatever. XD

    • 1.2 Sam

      Omg she was one of the actresses I wanted for this drama. Yay I’m so excited! I hope she accepts the role.

  2. lol

    omg omg omg omg!!! please accept it!!!!!

    • 2.1 pabo ceo reom

      Seriously she should! It would be a huge saving grace for the drama.

      P.S. I love how we’re all amnesiac about the drama that should not be named. Joo-won and Choi Kang-hee? Never heard of it!

      • 2.1.1 Ivoire

        Hello pabo ceo reom :-), Interestingly enough, I have heard of that drama, which I happen to have liked…

    • 2.2 Ivoire

      As some have said here, it would be interesting to know more about her character’s description.
      JB said this, “Iโ€™d be happy with a romance-less story of human bonding and relationships, but Iโ€™m not sure dramaland really knows how to do that yet.” And I agree with her. I too, would love it, if it were a romance-less story about human bonding and relationships. They could do so much with that.

      • 2.2.1 eny

        less romance story will be good for this drama, i don’t want they put romance just for the sake of teenage viewer, i want realistic story

    • 2.3 am

      SHE SAID YES!!! *cries tears of joys*

  3. MsB

    The mind of a grade-schooler and romance? Have to see them pull this off without been disturbed by it. Still on the fence for this one. Civil Servant, did not finish, left a bad taste in mouth. Have yet to watch all of Ojako (sp) Brothers.

    • 3.1 Lori

      “The mind of a grade-schooler and romance?”

      that’s the first thing that i thought! and if she’s supposed to be super smart it starts to turn from just a little questionable to down right creepy.

      • 3.1.1 Mia

        I don’t see how her being dumb would make it any more morally acceptable. It’s not about intelligence but one’s life experience/decision-making faculties that makes relationships between children/adolescents and adults unacceptable and why we consider it statutory rape, right?

        But I dunno. I’ve always loved Big, and I don’t see them even going that far as that movie did. As long as it’s handled sweetly and delicately, I think this can avoid being too squicky. And in this case, even though he has the personality of a fourth-grader, he’s still physiologically an adult with the same amount of life experience as she would have. But it is a little weird, no doubt.

        • Jayden

          “…autistic savant whoโ€™s a surgical genius with the personality of a grade-schooler.”

          Let’s get a bit technical here. *puts on professional hat*

          When we say someone has autism, it means the person has difficulties in three areas (“triad of impairment”):
          1. Social interaction (building relationships with others, understanding turn-taking and non-verbal cues)
          2. Social communication (use and interpretation of language — difficulties with figurative/non-direct language)
          3. Imaginative thought (flexibility to react to changes in routine, perspective-taking)

          Because it’s what we call a spectrum disorder, no two people with autism are exactly alike. Some may have greater deficits in some of these areas. Their cognitive profiles may also be very different.

          According to the description, it sounds like Joo Won’s character has a cognitive level that is probably pretty high (‘surgical genius’). In addition, he’s a savant, which means he is exceptionally gifted in one area (surgical knowledge?).

          The difficulty is that his character probably has problems interacting with people (‘grade-school personality’), and probably has poorer social skills. It doesn’t mean that he’s incapable of wanting friendships or even romance — it just means he doesn’t quite know how to approach someone for it.

  4. Ena

    Haha. Love your remarks re Joo Won leading lady.

    Thank god, an actress not too painful to watch, acting by side with this boy.

    This is one interesting pairing for Joo Won after Uee. Let’s see if Moon Chae Won can take away Uee’s spot in MY LIST.

    Joo Won + Uee = Ojakgyo Brother beautiful love story.

    Joo Won + Moon Chae Won + Director of Ojakgyo Brother = Hopefully for another beautiful love story.

    Moon Chae Won shi.. go for it. Go grab this opportunity.. grab Joo Won. LOL.

    • 4.1 Lea

      I know, Joo Won and UEE was just effortless, you could really see they’re chemistry. Also it helped that it was a long family drama were the relationship grows naturally without that much pressure to be together so fast.
      The right drama, with the right people is always magic. ๐Ÿ˜€
      Here’s hoping for this one!

      • 4.1.1 Jo

        for the UEE thing, it mightve been more natural since it was a lengthy project whereas the others are not. Even the audience had time to grow and accept the romances, which is often why pairings in family dramas work

    • 4.2 Betsy Hp

      It was a secondary thing, but I did really like the chemistry between Joo Won and Han Chae-ah in “Gaksital”. Also, liked the chemistry between him and Eugene in “Baker King”. Those two and Uee were good pairings. Other than that… agreed. ๐Ÿ™‚

      • 4.2.1 ilikemangos

        Not alot of people would know the eugene + joo won pairing since it was his debut but surprisingly they had chemistry even if she was 7 years his senior. Also i give credit to how the character, ma jun, was portrayed.

        • jomo

          I loved the love (maybe?) story between Eugene and JW in BK.
          Not typical, kept me guessing the whole time, and man! when they sparked, they SPARKED!

          For me, that was one of the most compelling couples in many dramas, and I have to admit, the reason I finished the series.

          • eny

            i love it too, beside the rivality of tak gu n ma jun , majun-yu kyung love is the interesting point in baker king
            If people talk about chemistry i though they more look at how match that pairing in look n plus the romance story in that drama.

          • Betsy Hp

            @jomo: “…and I have to admit, the reason I finished the series.”

            Me too, me too! It went pretty far off the usual script so I thought I was seeing things maybe I wasn’t supposed to… but I was supposed to! ๐Ÿ˜€

  5. Cam

    Oooowwhoooo!!!! She was really GREAT in that drama Princess’s Man….it was truly DAEBAAAAK…!! Aha, I hope that she will ACCEPT this drama and work with JOO WON….it will be AWESOME, keke!! ๐Ÿ˜€

    • 5.1 ilikemangos

      She was a revelation in The Princesses Man for me considering ive watched her here and there in Shining inheritance and Take care of the Fair Lady as the second lead. Since then she is continually improving, which is something I always like to see in actors/actresses. Even if she isnt the strongest actress out there, she definitely has a charm and i always like to watch her in her characters. She’s also only 26 so she has a long way ahead of her to go. Even so, i do think shes one of the stronger actresses in her generation.

  6. ElainesTale

    moon joon won and moon chae won. THEY ARE MADE FOR EACH OTHER ALREADY

    • 6.1 Lori

      MoonWon couple!

      OMG, it’s almost TOO perfect.

    • 6.2 Kgrl

      LMAO. There are quite a few MoonWon fans already – not of them as a couple necessarily, but b/c the fans happen to love both.

      I have mixed feelings about this news. For MCW’s benefit, I don’t know if I want her to participate. It’s definitely going to be predominantly male character development rather than female…and she’s been very keen on choosing roles she can really learn and have great interest in.

      Let’s hope if CW is confirmed, the writer will do a little bit more in developing her role than his previous works.

      • 6.2.1 geri

        agree with you.. it will definetly predominantly male character development rather than female.. if i’m not mistake MCW turned down RTP because it focus more to male centre..

        • bluez

          Actually, it was because she wanted to get rid of saguek image and RTP had some saguek elements.

          • geri

            RTP totally 90% modern element and 10% saeguk element (in episode1 and last episode)

          • bluez

            Yeah, but they usually don’t get the whole script. Most of the time, actors were only given a long summary of the plot..so from that, it might dive more sageuk vibe than the actual drama. But she had said right after finished filming for TPM that she is afraid of being stereotyped as sageuk actress since at that year, her two hit projects were both sageuk. And she wanted to try modern drama to change the sageuk image

      • 6.2.2 pogo

        Itโ€™s definitely going to be predominantly male character development rather than femaleโ€ฆ

        This is the only thing that causes me to balk a little – even if Nice Guy was centred on its male lead, her part wasn’t just some pretty girl on the sidelines.

  7. crazedlu

    No. I will probably be the only one saying no. But I will accept it if it’s confirmed only because they’re around the same age.

    • 7.1 KDR

      I say no as well. But my no is for the whole drama premise as a whole. I just can’t suspend my belief THAT much!

  8. annas


    This is one good pairing. Please do it girl. I already interested in her character description.

    If she accept this, it will be her hatrick with KBS. 3 dramas in a row.

  9. snow_white

    Yay for the similar age female lead opposite Joo Won….
    Moon Chae won is really talented….:-) hope she confirms….

  10. 10 natalie

    Omg, I can go down on my knees. Please, please take the role!

  11. 11 Trina

    I am sorry. please forgive me. I hope she will not sign on this drama. I would rather see her in another saejuks drama or her being in a movie. I feel that they will not have chemistry of each other.

    • 11.1 Kiara

      Ikr? I’m kind of hesitant on this project because this could end up being a disaster but I will have to trust her judgement on this.

      • 11.1.1 Annie

        This just seems to be one of many offers (though it’s pretty late in the game to be casting a main character…) and there were only 3 articles total about it. Let’s pray to the drama gods that she doesn’t accept!

      • 11.1.2 geri

        Hmmm the drama maybe will be huge success or big flop.. since it will be air in slot monday-tuesday in KBS they will have fierce competition with MBC which air saeguk drama back to back and with the plot sound unrealistic + maybe they will focus to love theme between JW and MCW? erkk it will akward to watch it.

        • Annie

          Not to mention Park Kyung Soo’s Golden Empire which has Go Soo and Lee Yo Won and which by the time of this drama’s premiere will have aired 8 to 10 episodes already… the Korean public is in love with Park Kyung Soo so I can see that one doing good numbers (which in this day and age is 15%+, lol)

          • geri

            OMG.. gulp golden empire sound good + goo soo and lee yo won a stellar cast .. i really like park kyung soo last drama the chaser..

  12. 12 liz

    No. No. No.

    I’m still trying to accept how JW’s character can be a doctor if he has such age – he is the age of a 9/10 kid right? How can a kid be a doctor? How to deal with all the deaths, deals and responsibilities ??

    I remember when they tried to give BG in can you hear my heart a wife, and it was just no… strange, he was a kid, she a full grown woman… uh…

    • 12.1 Jillia

      The character descriptions at this stage of a drama production are pretty rudimentary, so until August there can still happen a LOT with it. I don’t think he will be like a child – just childlike due to him being autistic.

      And we really don’t know IF there will be any romance in involved in this drama – like javabeans said. ๐Ÿ™‚

      • 12.1.1 Jillia

        I just saw… “like a child” = “childlike”… What was I thinking while writing this? xD But I hope you get what I mean. ๐Ÿ™‚

    • 12.2 KDR

      AGREE x10!

    • 12.3 Savanna

      The story isnโ€™t that unrealistic actually. Autism is such a vague word, people fall on different levels of autism; itโ€™s a spectrum. Lots of people have a high functioning type of autism; asperger. People with asperger have high IQs and believe it or not, but they end up having professional careers. It is believed that Einstein had a form of aspergers. Anyways, the whole medical career thing is believable if Joo wonโ€™s character is diagnosed with aspergers. Anyone with autism would have social skill problems, its just how severe it can be.

      • 12.3.1 chrissy96

        I heard that Joowon’s character had the “Savant Syndrome” which is a serious type of autism…?

        • KimYoonmi

          Savants are relatively rare, though. I kinda think it does a disservice to autistic people to put the majority in the savant category–it really doesn’t help to argue that autism is a spectrum….

          People auto-think that all autism is for geniuses… but I’d like to see more of a range, the difficulties, etc. Instead of the fictionalized version being auto genius savant.

          There are savants on toy cars, for example. Will that make it into a TV show? Probably not.

    • 12.4 Angela

      Doogie Howser was a doctor =P

  13. 13 pogo

    Chemistry-wise, Song Joong-ki and Park Shi-hoo are big shoes for Joo-won to fill opposite MCW, but the potential pairing has me wishing really hard that she’d take it.

    It’d only be fair, since one of my dream drama pairings bit the dust (SJK and Park Shin-hye), we get to see another (her and Joo-won)

  14. 14 jandoe

    Hot damn, I hope she’ll take this. Not exactly a pairing I’d imagined but wayyyy better because yup, let’s face it: Joo Won needs better pairings, given his resume.

    I thought I heard Jung Ryeo Won’s name being floated around previously? Anyhooo, both ladies are fantastic and I’m excited and hope they’ll sign on!

  15. 15 Fab

    Don’t have a good feeling about this drama- I hope she declines, love her too much.

  16. 16 mj

    as if I wasn’t already super excited about joo won now moon might join sooo freaking excited now … and I totally agree I only ever liked joo won with uee also the other leading ladies I either hated the actress or the character

  17. 17 myungsoohyungsik

    The story is interesting but too unrealistic.. (but then again, was time travelling?)
    Given that this drama has Joowon and possibly moon chae won, I would watch it. The age is perfect (1 year apart) and they are both so charming individually.
    I hope she accepts!!!!!

  18. 18 geesw

    What wonderful newsss!!!!! XD And i only hope she accepts the offer now ๐Ÿ˜€ I mean who in their right minds would resist the temptation of co-starring with Joo-won?? Plus, i must agree whole-heartedly with this statement: you donโ€™t cast Joo-won and Moon Chae-won and then ignore romance, do you? so i expect loads of lovey-dovey romance in this show.

    i mustsay, that I HAVE ALWAYS WANTED MOON JOON WON (joowon’s birth name) AND MOON CHAE WON TO ACT TOGETHER! I am so. excited.

  19. 19 Margo

    Am I the only one who liked the pairing in Gaksital? Although Jin Se Yeon’s acting was seriously over shadowed by Joo Won, I think Park Ki Woong is the only one who wasn’t overshadowed lol

    In any case, I think these too will be interesting together – as friends or love interests! I look forward to seeing them interact ๐Ÿ™‚ She seems like she would play a convincing doctor <3

    • 19.1 luvhee107

      I am with you. haa. ๐Ÿ˜€ I like Joo Won and Jin Seyeon in Gaksital and even love their chemistry for being the models for EDWIN clothes brand together. they look great together as a pair for me.

      but for sure I am anticipating this drama because I did watch all both Moon Chaewon and Joo Won acting. hopefully their talent will not be waste in this drama.

  20. 20 geri

    omg.. MCW as much i love you, please don’t accept this offer.. i think the drama will focus more to male centre which JW and jong sang wook..

    • 20.1 Annie

      As a Moon Chae Won fan, I totally agree. Roles like this will not help her at all.

    • 20.2 bluez

      Yeah, my exact sentiment.

    • 20.3 topper


    • 20.4 Trina

      agree with this too….

  21. 21 her eyes are wide-set

    I pity the director and scriptwriter!!
    they must have been out of their senses!!
    her acting sucks,SUCKS.
    she also is NOT natural beauty!!!!

    • 21.1 Annie

      “she also is NOT natural beauty”…

      Erm, commenting on her acting ability is your prerogative, but is this seriously the worst you could come up with? In the Korean entertainment industry?

    • 21.2 Mystisith

      Natural beauties are the exception in K Dramaland, not the rule. Casting directors are already struggling to find decent actresses in the proper age range, so if they have to take that in consideration too…

    • 21.3 danava

      How old are you?

    • 21.4 JYJ


      Simple as that.

      • 21.4.1 Kiara

        Yes, drive through.

    • 21.5 topper

      She’s as low key as an actress can be. How to garner trolls, I do not understand.

    • 21.6 Jillia

      Very constructive comment… I hope you get the sarcasm. I don’t know what you mean with “natural beauty” but there are definitely actresses out there that are NOT natural though MCW isn’t one of them.

    • 21.7 geri

      troll.. troll.. troll

  22. 22 channah

    Hope she stays away from that oncoming hot mess.

  23. 23 Mystisith

    Btw, Joo Sang Wook has confirmed his participation. I mention it since I find that he is barely mentionned in those Green Scalpel posts.
    I know that Joo Won is a darling of the site but he won’t be MY reason why for watching this drama. ๐Ÿ˜‰

    • 23.1 ck1Oz

      He is? ๐Ÿ™‚

      GaeinaLee… yoo hoo!! You here. You got your man there to stare at.

      While quite a few posts from the earlier article are panning JW. The rest of us on viki who actually want to work on his next drama are in a pretty celebratory mood.

      If she is in. And Joo Sang Wook is in— we are pretty damn stoked.

    • 23.2 Rashell

      If that is true, then I’m definitely in because I love all three. And I could handle a romance between any of them (yeah, even JSW and JW ;))

    • 23.3 lili

      Joo Won + Joo Sang Wook + Moon Chae Won? = Must watch!!!
      I’m not very enthusiastic about the plot but the cast alone lets me think it’s worth watching *in awe*

    • 23.4 jomo

      Not THAT would be a great great great freaking great pairing…JSW and MCW, be still my heart.

      It would be perfect if JW is just kinda there off to the side for MCW to befriend and maybe disagree with JSW over, but then she eventually falls for JSW.

      I cannot will not watch another JSW show where he doesn’t get the girl.

      • 23.4.1 Mystisith

        Call. I want bromance on the front AND romance played low key in the background. And a lot of bickering… ^^

      • 23.4.2 Celia

        AGREE! I am more interested in JSW-MCW pairing than JW-MCW. MCW always give me mature and calm vibe so I think she will be better suited with slightly older, mature (and sexy!) looking male lead like JSW while Joo Won looks too aegyo for her, IMO.

  24. 24 ck1Oz

    Am I the next comment after #21?

    Wow. Sometimes it’s painful having trolls on DB.

    I had to do a pulse check when I read the news. I was just imagining the visuals alone from those 2.

  25. 25 lemondoodle

    I’d watch for her. Not a Joo Won fan, but I love her.

  26. 26 topper

    To me she already established herself to get roles that are centered on her character as the lead. The description here doesn’t fit that, so it won’t do her justice to pick it up.

    • 26.1 hmm

      tbh Nice Guy wasn’t centered on her either, but she shined in it…

      • 26.1.1 Annie

        I think the OP meant that now she has some clout in the industry she should be free to pick and choose roles where she could actually have some level of agency.

        • topper

          Yup that’s what I meant.

      • 26.1.2 geri

        yes it’s not like Nice guy.. but i have feeling the drama will more focus between JW and JSW.. the drama will be unrealistic if they focus more to romance scene between JW and MCW

    dude i so wish joo won’s character’s mind was stuck in teens then the romance won’t be as creepy to see… but if they are going for friendship or mentor student kind of relationship then i think it will work better……. but i so wanted to see them in a conventional romance, well at least i get one of my dream pairings other being lee seung gi + park shin hye. moon chae won + jung il woo

    “Iโ€™d be happy with a romance-less story of human bonding and relationships, but Iโ€™m not sure dramaland really knows how to do that yet.” in dramaland’s favor, they did that with School 2013, Vampire Prosecutor and I loved it :3

    Since it was annouced joo sang wook would be involved, i’m interested in this drama… i think im a bit more comfortable with her being joo sang wook’s love interest in some way than to see her fall in love with a “kid”.. thats beyond creepy! if joo won and her become friends, it could be great tho.

    I really hope MCW accepts!! I’ve been missing her after Nice Guy!! JW seems like a good co-star for her.

    HAIL TO THE DRAMA GODS! I will be truly the luckiest fan if Moon Chae Won accept this drama. I just said yesterday that I wanted her to be Joo Won’s lead and it seems like the odds are in my favor. ๐Ÿ™‚

    The story isn’t that unrealistic actually. Autism is such a vague word, people fall on different levels of autism; it’s a spectrum. Lots of people have a high functioning type of autism; asperger. People with asperger have high IQs and believe it or not, but they end up having professional careers. It is believed that Einstein had a form of aspergers. Anyways, the whole medical career thing is believable if Joo won’s character is diagnosed with aspergers. Anyone with autism would have social skill problems, its just how severe it can be.

      but why the plot says his mind is of a child of 10?

      this makes any couple between the leads creepy.

  38. 38 Emilia

    OMG, I’VE BEEN WANTING HER TO WORK WITH JOO WON SINCE I’VE SEEN THEM ACT! I was hoping it would happen in that one drama Joo won was recently in but some other actress got the part.

    You wrote the source with No Cut News… But why you pick photo from Star News DB……

    I am torn with this.
    In one side, I’m afraid that the drama will not do her character justice however these three actors combination is just so hard to resist!
    On another note, am I the only one here more interested in her and Joo Sang-wook chemistry than her with JJoo Won?
    I mean, I quite like JW but I just think MCW-JSW will be one hot pairing. Oh writer-nim, if JW character is too child-like to even know love, let her be with JSW instead.

    • 40.1 Nauna

      Nope, not the only one. I find that pairing intriguing also. I’ll be surprised if she actually takes the role though. I’ve been on the fence with this drama, but if she really does take the role then that would definitely push me over in to must-watch territory.

      • 40.1.1 Celia

        Yep, interesting pairing indeed and JSW is one mighty fine man with good acting skill too. I enjoy his drama TEN so much. If she take this role, I will def. watch this even if the story hasn’t won me over yet. Hope her character and the story will turn out good.

  41. 41 Angeliam

    I want drama that center her not the guy. A female warrior will fit her. Hope the best for her


    Oh boo!

    I lurve Moon Chae-won and I really like Joo won and the only thing I do not like is the premise of this drama!

    Boo! Star in something more awesome Moon Chae-won!

    Also, I think sometimes I forget to say thank you to Javabeans and also Girlfriday for always keeping me updated with such interesting casting news!!

    Thanks so much you guys! You make my day! ๐Ÿ™‚

    Love JW, JSW and now MCW, yahoo… Autism has many, many levels and I’m truly looking forward to this cast.. JW is the it guy right now, JSW–love him since forever and MCW I really liked .. Daddy’s Girl and she was compelling in Nice-Innocent Guy… Sooo looking forward to this, thanks..

  44. 44 Arhazivory

    I was already on board when I heard its being written by God’s Quiz’s writer. So it could star three sticks….I’d still watch it.

    I love the casting so far though. ๐Ÿ˜€

  45. 45 malta

    This sounds like a drama that should be cast with 30 and 40yr olds (Like most medical kdramas- White Tower, Brain etc.), but they wanted to make it with young spritely actors so they made the characters…”geniuses” and “super hard workers.” Lol.

    Jury is out for me…I like Moon Chae Won and Joo Won, but I don’t know about them together. I always think Moon Chae Won should be with an older male lead because she has such a presence on the screen that can easily overshadow others. I thought she was way more compelling than Song Joon Ki in Nice Guy, where he did not have the same level of acting that he had in A Werewolf Boy or in Tree with Deep Roots…And with the male character being childlike, IDK…

    So yeah, jury’s out.

    • 45.1 eny

      i think MCW is good but i don’t really want her in this drama, i think they had to choose older actress for this role, i agree with you that song jong ki not really good in nice guy but he’s good in deep root tree

    (Jin Se-yeon was very green next to him, and Choi Kang-hee was never paired with him in any drama or ever shall be, the end.)

    HAHHAHA so hilarious JB.

  47. 47 SS

    I am so excited to see Joo Sang Wook confirmed in this drama together with Joo Won. I can already imagined the awesomeness they will bring to the drama. If Moon Chae Won will confirm this too, then I am even more excited. Not because I am looking forward towards their romance, I am actually hoping that the romance is not forced. I can imagine her with JSW’s character but not JW’s. How can a man with a social development of a 10 year old handle romance? Maybe the physical attraction but I can’t see how they can engage each other. Let’s see if the drama is able to handle this issue well.

    I like MCW because she doesn’t play dumb or the type of female characters who suddenly lose their intellect/composure/dignity when in love and not in a cute or funny way either. I couldn’t bear the female lead character in Brain.

  48. 48 Trina

    Okay… when is the news that Joo Sang Wook confirmed for this drama… I thought he was considering this.. Okay… I read earlier report that Kim So Hyun was thinking about it but then Joo Won now confirm lead.. hrmm.. Interesting… I am still thinking that it is MCW with Joo Won no chemistry at all.. I think if it is human bonding and friendship of all three and less romance story. Maybe.. But, as of now, I pray to the kdrama gods that she will decline this offer.

    “Choi Kang-hee was never paired with him in any drama or ever shall be, the end.”

    That bad, huh?

    Forgot Eugene in KOF…. but she had better romance with YSY ๐Ÿ˜›
