Kim Jae-wook takes Who Are You as comeback drama
by | June 19, 2013 | 126 Comments

Kim Jae-wook (Bad Guy, Mary Stayed Out All Night, Coffee Prince) is out of the army and heading back to television, so mark July in your calendars if you want to catch him in his comeback role. It’s for tvN’s Who Are You, the paranormal series starring So Yi-hyun as the ghost-seeing heroine and Taecyeon as her skeptic of a co-worker. Sigh. I wasn’t thrilled about those leads, but Kim Jae-wook is a different story altogether. I’ll have to pencil this one in after all.

A few more details about the plot: The heroine wakes up from a six-year coma to find that she can now see ghosts. Kim Jae-wook will play So Yi-hyun’s boyfriend who died in an accident. Aw, is he her Scheduler? The three leads will have a love triangle of sorts, although since one of them is dead, I suppose it’ll be rather incomplete. Though plenty bittersweet. It also suggests that while the ghost boyfriend will play a prominent role in the story, the other two will have the ultimate pairing. You know, since Taecyeon is still alive and all.

The coma bit might work toward closing their age gap a bit, since she’ll be mentally younger than her years. I frankly don’t have a problem with the noona romance most of the time, but since she’s four years older than Taec, I can see how some viewers might want a closer pairing. Their characters both work at the lost and found department, and the drama unfolds as they set out to resolve ghosts’ unfinished business through the lost items they’ve left behind. Aw, and she’s the thing that Kim Jae-wook’s ghost has left behind. I’m pretty sure this drama will make me cry, and I’ll probably be bawling like a baby when he moves on to the hereafter amidst his backlit Patrick Swayze haze of glory.

Who Are You is described as being both poignant and melo, so I’m getting something of a 49 Days vibe, maybe crossed with that other Who Are You from 2008, which I also found quite stirring. It’s sounding like Who Are You will take the dramatic approach to this ghost conceit, while Master’s Sun works the comedy angle. What are the odds of both being great, you think? Better not hold my breath.

Who Are You will follow Dating Agency Cyrano and premieres in July.

    Aw. Why is Kim Jae-wook second lead to Taek Yeon πŸ™

    • 2.1 skelly

      It is SO annoying, how they are always placing fame above talent. KJW has so much more experience, and is ten times the actor Taecyeon is, but because of idol status and that horrible WGM (sorry fans, that show gives me the creeps) the talentless one gets the lead.

      It might actually be amusing, because the dead boyfriend is going to be a lot livelier and have a lot more range of emotion than the supposedly live guy. Taec ought to be the ghost, and they could have him do a bunch of meditative sweeping like he did in Cinderella’s Sister.

      I still won’t tune in because of my detestation of the leads – if only there was a way to just watch Kim Jae-Wook!

      • 2.1.1 Mystisith

        I agree with you about the casting. Also, 49 Days once in my life is enough.

        PS: I also don’t get what’s the fuss about WGM. At best it’s scripted silly. All that it does is messing with the netizens’s heads which already have troubles distinguishing fiction from RL.

        • 2.1.1.1 skelly

          That is my main issue with the program; I think it encourages fans to make fantasy out to be reality, or to confuse a scripted scenario with real-life feelings. I don’t know how many times I have heard someone write, in excited, breathless tones, that they are CERtain he really meant something by that press of her hand or whatever, or that she could never say something like that to just ANY body…
          and it is “reality” TV, where people scream and shout at one another or make friends or go through a competition and the audience believes it is all real. Nope. All fiction, it’s just that they get around all of those pesky union wages (at least in the US) by using non-actors in clumsy improv and making up cheesy scenarios instead of hiring a writer to craft a story.

          • 2.1.1.1.1 Wendilynn

            Unfortunately, fans have been pairing up co-stars since the days of black and white silent movies. None of these nonsense is new.

          • 2.1.1.1.2 canxi

            I’m sure the fans all know deep down the stuff that happens on the show isn’t real, lol. Though, I don’t doubt that there may be some attraction between a few of those couples–friendly or otherwise. No need to be bothered about it, skelly!

            Anyway, back to the drama in terms of the casting–in this case, I like it. I feel like the part of the ghost is gonna be the more interesting/complex character in the story. From drama-watching experience–a leading role doesn’t always mean an interesting role…or good role, even, haha. And sometimes that’s just the actor but then….sometimes it’s not. We’ll have to wait and see (or I will, anyhow, lol).

      • 2.1.2 TS

        Yeah, this casting is ridiculous.

        Can’t stand Taecyeon.

        • 2.1.2.1 zsa

          Exactly…how can he be second lead?? HOW??? This is beyond ridiculous!!

      • 2.1.3 Jess

        PREACH. IT. SISTER.

        <3

      • 2.1.4 erica

        while agree with you to watch kjw is a better option cause i tried to watch the show and he is the best part, he stated he was needing time to switch from mil to civ life. for all of us that have, it can take a bit. also while i agree that he is a good introverted actor and i loved bakery but he stated he had a hard time bringing such a out there character to life. so let us hope they will give him a good role as a lead soon. i could see him as a single father- totally.

      • 2.1.5 chews

        Whats WGM? if you dont mind me asking

    • 2.2 the other kay

      maybe it’s the better character? i sure hope so.

    • 2.3 selina

      mte. i want him for the lead (more screen time) πŸ™ ah well, i normally get second male syndrome anyways; the only down side is lack of screen time.

  3. blegh

    aaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaah! the sexy is back!

  4. shinningmoon

    Well, IΒ΄m with you on the “not being thrilled with the leads, and Kim Jae Wok being a diferent matter” part. So I think I would take a look of this new drama.

    • 4.1 gingeranna

      Me too! I was so “meh”ing this drama when I read the other article, but I’m wondering why Kim Jae Wook should be the second (ghost) lead when he’s clearly my favourite!! πŸ™

    • 4.2 Rashell

      Add me to the list as me three. He’s a must watch for me since Coffee Prince. He’s totally going to make me cry. Sigh. One more drama to add to the ever growing list.

    • 4.3 nomad

      Me three. I was already for sure going to dump the show, can’t stand the two leads (OTP?), but now..him? He’s one of my favorites!!! How is it that a truly great actor playing second fiddle to a wooden board? *cant comprehend*

  5. Yuaekito

    That picture is so misleading! I couldn’t recognize him at all!

    • 5.1 alua

      It’s from the first script reading.

      He was hiding behind glasses and under a hat so as not outshine Taecyeon from the start. Because that is what he’s going to do.

      • 5.1.1 skelly

        He will SO outshine Taecyeon; a better actor, and handsomer IMHO.

        • 5.1.1.1 alua

          They are both handsome, but KJW has that kind of magnetic aura that makes you stare at him.

          That’s why his modelling pictures work so well.

          • 5.1.1.1.1 missDVM

            Very true. He is charismatic onscreen. He definitely holds your eye…. It is difficult to put into words. I *do* love his acting, too, though. He definitely has skills. Not just a pretty face- the man can act. But yes, he definitely “holds” my attention longer than some of the other “pretty” faces.

            And I don’t mind at all.

            πŸ™‚

      • 5.1.2 ilikemangos

        Hahaha..
        +1

      • 5.1.3 zsa

        I soooo love your comment!!! That’s so true….I’m already finding it difficult to locate TC…where is he?? Hahaha…

    • 5.2 Julia

      I thought it was just me! KJW is top 5 favorite actors to dream about, and here I couldn’t even recognize him! oH do take your shirt off please. Me want to see you in a bedroom scene like Mary wearing just a bathrobe. But not likely if he is a ghost, eh?

  6. blegh

    I do like him with longer hair though. but then agai I like anyone with long hair. πŸ˜›

    • 6.1 Areki

      Totally agree. On both sentences πŸ™‚

    • 6.2 alua

      I’ll join you on this…. πŸ˜€

    • 6.3 ys

      That boy from Cyrano Agency kept making me think of KJW, not because they look alike but because of the hair, the hair! One side always tucked behind the ear, the other sometimes not.

  7. KDaddict

    How does a guy come back fr the army w skin like that? Only in S Korea!

  8. dany

    So happy about this!

  9. canxi

    Well, the story definitely sounds more interesting than when it was talked about before and I trust tVN, too. (: I’m down to give it a look-see.

  10. 10 Rainerust

    Darn I was hoping to give this one a miss but KJW is too hot to pass up arg! I even watched Antique Bakery for that man which just goes to show…

    • 10.1 Nauna

      Same here. My head keeps saying no, but my heart keeps saying it’s KJW, KJW…

  11. 11 Katie

    I agree, why is he second lead? He is a big draw in my opinion. I like Taecyeon but he needs time to develop…he should be second lead for now and then become male lead later.

    • 11.1 Annie

      2PM is popular in Japan. You do the math.

      • 11.1.1 skelly

        No wonder they were desperate enough to photoshop in the extra fans at Tokyo Dome; must maintain the illusion of raving fandom, esp. in Japan!

        • 11.1.1.1 Annie

          Hey, having some level of name recognition in Japan sure beats casting people who can actually act but are not draws outside Korea.

          I mean, they’re even using a noona romance as a gimmick – is there any doubt that these producers have yen signs in their eyes?

          • 11.1.1.1.1 Jo

            I doubt the noona romance is a gimmick. -_-
            This is starting to sound like a conspiracy theory

          • 11.1.1.1.2 hapacalgirl

            This would be a valid point if not for the fact that Kim Jae Wook is pretty popular in japan as well. In fact I am pretty sure he is more popular than Taecyeon in Japan.

          • 11.1.1.1.3 ajj

            But Kim Jae Wook is also popular in Japan he did fanmeets there in the past.And he’s also part Japanese and actually grew up in Japan.

      • 11.1.2 lu

        lol and so is KJW. He did dramas/movies there and is popular there too. Maybe more popular than Taec.

        KJW last drama did so well there (Bad guy) and he speaks Japanese very well too.

        • 11.1.2.1 Annie

          I would imagine that Taecyeon is the safer choice of the two especially since KJW just came back from the army.

          • 11.1.2.1.1 pogo

            That’s what I thought too, but of all the idols out there, they had to pick the worst at acting. *sigh*

  12. 12 browncoat_78

    For the love of all that is holy, why is Kim Jae Wook still not the leading man? Especially when he will act circles (lots of very big circles) around the leading man in this drama.

    • 12.1 pogo

      Seriously. Watching Taecyeon try to ‘act’ is actually painful, mostly from all the eyerolling I end up doing at his attempts to generate a facial expression and say his lines at the same time.

      I can take Kim Jae-wook playing second lead to Kim Nam-gil or Jang Geun-seok, but to THIS non-acting piece of wood? It’s practically an insult.

      • 12.1.1 TS

        Agreed.

    • 12.2 zsa

      Exactly…hahah….I’m loving all this mass reaction of shock…

  13. 13 snow_white

    I liked him in Coffee Prince and finally there is a reason to watch this show…..

  14. 14 alua

    I don’t mind the age gap. Four years is nothing. Are we supposed to hang out and be in relationships with people only born in the same year or what?

    Kim Jae Wook should not be second lead, and even less so when Taecyeon is the lead. That just highlights everything that is wrong with the entertainment industry.

    Don’t get me wrong, I like Taeyeon, but he a) doesn’t have the acting skills at this point to carry a drama and b) Kim Jae Wook is going to act him off the page. (It’s like with Suzy and Gu Family Book. *sigh*)

    Boohoo to shows that value the popularity of an idol over the acting quality of its cast… it’s like they aim from the start to be only good when they could be excellent.

    • 14.1 Annie

      The age gap is not the problem for me – it’s just another gimmick in what will likely be a long line of gimmicks in this drama.

      • 14.1.1 moose

        I don’t think you quite understand what a gimmick actually is… lol.

    • 14.2 pogo

      Kim Jae Wook should not be second lead, and even less so when Taecyeon is the lead. That just highlights everything that is wrong with the entertainment industry.

      I completely agree. Kim Jae-wook is a good enough actor to have graduated to lead roles a while ago (and I hope he’ll do it yet, or go into movies – I thought he was just another pretty-boy actor but he really surprised me in Bad Guy and Antique), while Taecyeon should just not be acting, period.

  15. 15 maysoon

    My charming prince – Jaewook . I will definetly watch this drama – just bumped that Taecyeon is the lead (He is a terrible actor and Jaewook will outshine him 100/100).

    Jaewook has a better resume than Taecyeon.. I DONT UNDERSTAND THESE PDS FFS.

    /sigh

  16. 16 gray

    I like him so much!! Wish he could get the lead role in near future…….

  17. 17 Lea

    Awww Kim Chang Wan & Kim Jae Wook reuniting since Coffee Prince >W< γ…‹γ…‹γ…‹γ…‹γ…‹

    Visually I have no problems with So Ji Hyun and Taecyeon, they don't seem like such a noona/younger pair.
    I think I'm leaning more to this than the Hong sister's one, but who knows.
    Again visually Gong Hyo Jin and So Ji Sub just don't really look right to me :/

    • 17.1 Annie

      I’m having difficulty figuring out why SJS and GHJ look so off to me – I’m leaning towards him having a better aura with ‘pretty young thing’ actresses like Han Ji Min and Han Hyo Joo.

      • 17.1.1 Lea

        I don’t know why either, maybe So Ji Sub just has sharp features. I mean Gong Hyo Jin is soo pretty… maybe it is So Ji Sub, she’s been paired up with actors that can do comedy rather well Cha Seung Won, Lee Sun Gyun, Gong Yoo, and since So Ji Sub hasn’t and I just can’t really see it. It’s unfair of me to judge so quickly, but that’s what I feel at the moment. :/

      • 17.1.2 canxi

        I think it’s because they are so different in terms of acting and looks. Like Gong Hyo Jin is bubbly and smiley! And then So Ji Sub…is not. It’s kinda like placing black & white together–just polar opposites. Which I guess would have the same effect as placing SJS next to Han Ji Min (isn’t she around the same age as GHJ) and Han Hyo Joo because they are also bubbly and smiley, but as much as I like them both (a lot!), they don’t hold much of a candle to GHJ, yet…so it’s especially jarring! Who knows, though. We may be pleasantly surprised.

  18. 18 unknown

    Yay! All of MGY’s bffs in one drama!

    • 18.1 muchadoboutlove

      I just realized that the three leads have acted with Moon Geun Young before. HA, what a coincidence!

  19. 19 shaz22

    I think the only reason he took up this drama cause he gets to play a ghost. Cmon, KJW fans, we know our man enough…..the lead male character of this drama doesn’t look challenging enough. So I am very hopeful πŸ™‚ Let the sun shine bright behind the crows

    • 19.1 Lea

      lol right he does really like to play characters ‘out of the box’ sometimes haha

    • 19.2 Yeoreumah

      Ooh i totally consider myself a KJW fan but didn’t know that about him.. you mean he totally believes in ghosts and things? I always have a hard time collecting information about him:( It’s not like he is an idol showing up in every possible variety show..

      • 19.2.1 nomad

        Not sure about believing in ghosts, but he likes to take roles which portray out of the box things or unusual.

      • 19.2.2 shaz22

        I don’t know about believing in ghost part………….kekeke
        But Nomad gets it, he sure won’t play thee lead in this drama cause there’s bare anything new you can do to a detective role…….it’s honestly overdone.
        But ghost, dead boyfriend…..now that’s interesting!

  20. 20 Mar

    I like this actor, have enjoyed his work. Not sure about this drama. Will see.

    I am shaking my head over there being any concern raised over a 4 year age difference between adult actors or characters.

    • 20.1 Mia

      Yeah, I was a little taken aback that a 4-year age difference would even be noted. Do some people actually have a problem with that (or more specifically, with the woman being a few years older, since we know a male actor who was four years older than his female costar would never raise an eyebrow)?

      Very excited for KJW. <3

  21. 21 crazykel

    I love Taecyeon, but…I wasn’t going to watch this drama solely because I felt he was the flattest actor in Dream High when it came to scenes when he was not being musical.

    Now that Kim Jae-Wook is in it…I may have to rethink my July drama lineup. I’ve missed him too much to wait longer, but I still wish he was the lead.

  22. 22 owl

    He is so up there for me, can’t believe he’s 30?!?
    Loved the 1/2 Japanese 1/2 Korean black nail polish waffle maker in CP. Caught glimpses of him as garment vendor in DS. I love his stage presence. Can’t wait to see him post military!

  23. 23 IBELIS

    Sounds like Kiss me Goodbye. An old film staring Sally Fields, James Caan and Jeff Bridges.

    • 23.1 Jolie

      I’ve never saw Kiss Me Goodbye but the plot of this drama reminds me of a 2002 Hong Kong film called My Left Eye Sees Ghosts. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/My_Left_Eye_Sees_Ghosts (spoiler alert: link contains synopsis of the whole movie.)

      I enjoyed that movie and rewatched it again a few months ago and thought it could be reproduced as a drama. The heroine was in a car accident and momentarily died but was saved by a ghost of her long time friend. The accident caused her left eye to see ghosts, hence the title. Together with her ghost friend, they helped other ghost moved on with their unsolved business. And at the same time this also helped the heroine move on with her life after the death of her husband. The ending was bittersweet.

  24. 24 sPark*

    I am not thrilled about this. Kim Jae Wook is way too talented to be second especially to Taecyeon. I was probably not going to watch this drama, but now I must… so sad this is his post-army comeback drama :/

  25. 25 anna

    It would be more interesting if Taecyeon is the one who could see ghosts. That love triangle would be a hoot. Like he’s trying to get with her but dead boyfriend in the way.

    • 25.1 anna

      Also, how is the dead going to take a post-army shower? I hope there are flashbacks.

      • 25.1.1 ys

        Thumbs up!

      • 25.1.2 sally_b

        LOL!! re: “Also, how is the dead going to take a post-army shower?”

        so true…and funny πŸ™‚

      • 25.1.3 tarsoe

        lol. Flashbacks it is.

      • 25.1.4 Jayden

        Yes! This is absolutely the most pressing issue πŸ˜‰ The viewership must be appeased!

  26. 26 Alex

    I accually like Taecyeon and I’m willing to give him a chance, KJW is a good actor but that don’t mean u have to bash Taecyeon beause he is a lead character in this drama. Give him a chance.
    PS I’m not a fan of 2PM or 2AM i dont even now i which grupe he is. Sorry for my english, not my first language.

    • 26.1 skelly

      Can we just fill in the usual fan excuses now?

      – Give him/her a chance.
      – He/she needs to start somewhere!!!
      – But he/she did really well in [insert variety show or minor role here].
      – The PD would not have picked him/her if they didn’t think he/she could handle the role. Trust the PD!
      – He/she is improving! [To be repeated after every episode.]
      – He/she is soooooo cute! [insert squee about dimples, abs, or the required nice/”adorkable” personality here].
      – What makes you such an expert on acting/directing/casting???
      – If you can’t say something nice, don’t say anything at all! [To be is alternately with the always zippy “Haters gonna hate!”]
      – and the final fangirl capper, “Peace!”

      • 26.1.1 Mystisith

        Lol! Sad but true. *Copy and paste for future personal use.* πŸ˜‰

      • 26.1.2 ys

        Nice!

      • 26.1.3 pogo

        we should just make a bingo card and take a drink every time someone crosses one off.

        ‘give him a chance!’ is my personal favourite, especially after the bias in question has had several ‘chances’ and blown chunks at every single one of them, ha.

      • 26.1.4 Shiku

        LMAO!!

      • 26.1.5 zsa

        You are heaven sent….I don’t hate it so much that TC took the role, but more the casting member who offers this to him….

        …yeah start somewhere,,,,somewhere small preferably, and yeah, don’t listen to netizens, but ask an actual actor/trainer to comment on yr performance,,,work on it, take a long time if you must, and surprise people with your improvement….

        this should be the logical order…

      • 26.1.6 melo.boy

        wow! I say .. this absolutely kicked me in my head..!
        I’m noting this down for future reference…

      • 26.1.7 ladida

        Ouch, what a response to another poster.

  27. 27 Aimee

    Finally, KJW is back! Yes, he should be first lead, but I’ll just be happy to see him in a drama again.

  28. 28 Brittni

    YEEEESSS!! I’m so happy he’s finally back!!
    Now I understand that most people are upset that he is not the lead because clearly he is the better actor, but c’mon think about it here. He was GONE for two years! Even before he was gone he wasn’t a regular on the variety show or interview rotation so he really doesn’t have a ton of exposure to the main stream. He isn’t the huge name draw to a drama that Taecyeon is. And when you add in that his last drama before enlisting (that should have skyrocketed his name so people waited anxiously for his return!) did not do well. Mary Me Mary was not a huge success. It was actually pretty terrible. I couldn’t even get past episode 8. Never have I finished it, couldn’t do it. I happen to be a HUGE Moon Geun Young and Jang Geun Suk fan as well so that show was like naughty heaven for me. but I digress… just because you are a talented actor doesn’t mean you automatically get the best roles. You have to prove yourself to be a big draw, a household name. and he hasn’t done that yet. Let’s just cross our fingers and hope that this drama knocks peoples socks off.

    • 28.1 pogo

      Honestly, I don’t think people would be so annoyed about it if he was playing second lead to a less terrible ‘actor’ – he wasn’t in lead actor territory before he left for the military, and I do acknowledge that he’d probably fall back into his old holding pattern for a bit (i.e. second lead roles).

      The idol casting system is not something I usually have a problem with, but when it results in complete lack of talent getting lead roles over actors who could do ten times better, it does get frustrating.

    • 28.2 alua

      It’s the second lead to a significantly weaker actor that’s bothering me. I wouldn’t complain, say, if they had cast Kim Hyun-soo (also b. 1988), who can act.

      It’s the idol casting for fame-not-talent that annoys me,

      Just because you are a talented actor doesn’t mean you automatically get the best roles. You have to prove yourself to be a big draw, a household name.

      Yes, you will have to prove yourself, but so should untalented actors. And the measurement, IMO, cannot only be $$$$$. That will only lower the quality of productions in the long run (standards will get lowered), which cannot be good and I personally think is wrong.

  29. 29 LebG

    I love this thing already ! Thanks JB

  30. 30 aX

    Taecyeon ruins it for me completely even though I am excited for So Yi Hyun. Im so mad its stars Taecyeon. The more reason i hope the 2nd leads.ends up with her somehow.

    • 30.1 BeanieLurker07

      Ditto. He’s ruining any hopeful/good expectations I would have for this drama. No offense to Taecyeon fans… he just kind of sucks at acting. >.<

    Jae-Wook <3 one of my prayers answered tehee. Just..ajdakjfl….the BEST NEWS. Thanks JB for alerting me to this show again! Honestly, was going to give it a miss and catch up on sleep but I it's unmissable now. πŸ™‚

    Wow, I’m so not in tune with what goes on with various actors. I had no idea Kim Jae Wook was in the army during the last two years. No wonder he wasn’t in any dramas in 2011-2012 (I kept wondering about that).

    Well, glad he’s back! πŸ™‚ Though I wish he chose a different project… or at least was the lead for once. This guy has got to get a lead role sometime…

    *sigh*

    I guess I’ll be tuning into this drama as well… just for KJW.

    Kim Jae-wook! Kim Jae-wook! Wookie is back! I still remember when he went into the army. Super low-key, he left without any fanfare and spent his stint as a regular soldier. I am just thrilled he is working right away. Thank God for TVN.

    I was going to watch this drama(it’s tvn drama, and i’m kinda tvn bisaed) , but those comments are discouraging me

    Didn’t recognize Kim Jae Wook in the dorky looking glasses and ugly hat. Hurray! Glad that he is back, but terribly disappointed that he’s not the lead. I liked him in Bad Guy and was hoping he would get some lead roles when he return.

    Taecyeon’s acting is the pits..but I can understand that he has a large fan base with 2 PM. Just have to FF him. I wish they give Jae Wook more screen time because he was really good in Coffee Prince and Mary Stayed Out All Night.(liked him but not MSOAN)

    I enjoyed So Yi Hyun in Cheongdamdong Alice and Glowing She. She can be funny and sassy. I love funny and interesting ghost stories, and I’m hooked on TVN dramas.

    “I’m pretty sure this drama will make me cry, and I’ll probably be bawling like a baby when he moves on to the hereafter amidst his backlit Patrick Swayze haze of glory.”

    I can’t tell you how much I love Ghost. Perfect comment, javabeans!

  37. 37 Sayali

    Whoa, I looked at this really quickly and did not realise that was Kim Jae-wook. I love him, but I don’t want to watch this! Dilemma, dilemma.

  38. 38 justAchaar

    Yeah!!! KJW is back!!! But why is he playing dead???

  39. 39 mira

    ……………………* sigh*
    well he gave me a reason to finish ” Mary Stayed Out All Night” so maybe this won’t be a complete disappointment .

      You know, one of the good things about that drama despite all the weirdness in the middle, was the ending-the uncertainty of the future and choices. The meeting in the park of Ma-ri and Jung-in and the feeling that they will be part of each other lives in the future, and with the uncertainty that Ma-ri and Mu-gyul despite love, would actually work out-I loved the- we have broke up 12 times and are dating for the 13th time-and the ending about cross roads and choosing paths when you are young.

    Wow! Kim Jae Wook is back already! Good to see him!
    I’m glad I’m not the only who got mixed up with Who Are you 2008.
    Will give it a chance

      And I don’t think the 4 year age difference will make much of a difference. The time it matters to me is really when they’re like 10 years apart and you can’t not see their age difference. I’ve seen many castings where this age difference also affects the chemistry. It’s the same thing for much older male-female couple but it does work in some situations like in I hear your voice and Cyrano

  41. 41 Noelle

    Shoot I’m not gonna count him out until it’s over. It’s somewhat like the jdrama going on right now…the name escapes me. But the main character fell in love with the ghost and she fell right back…so. It can be a possibility. Unlikely but still possible.

  42. 42 altair

    The plot sounds awful. So Yi-hyun is not bad as an actress, but I cannot stand her with the short hair cut. I just cannot look at her. KJW- what are you doing here? You should be first lead and if you cannot be first lead(PDs, why?????) you should have chosen a different drama. This one will suck!

  43. 43 sarah_lina

    KJW second male lead again..i hope someday he will be male lead role..he so talented…

  44. 44 tamagoxyaki

    Only way I’d watch this is if there’s a plot twist and kim jae wook’s character comes back to life and gets the girl.

  45. 45 Cat

    Yay he’s back!! I’ve really liked him in most projects.

    BUT why second fiddle?! He needs to be the lead in something, please

  46. 46 kytam

    I was so hoping he joining Heirs. But here he is….

  47. 47 Fatima

    Guys, calm down. I really like Taecyeon and I agree he’s not the best actor, and that KJW is amazing. Just wait and see how it turns out. You’re really overthinking this, spectacularly. Just sit back and enjoy. Things happen. Can’t believe the aggression. We’ll be geting shirtless scenes from both, I hope.

      Can we just fill in the usual fan excuses now?

      – Give him/her a chance.
      – He/she needs to start somewhere!!!
      – But he/she did really well in [insert variety show or minor role here].
      – The PD would not have picked him/her if they didn’t think he/she could handle the role. Trust the PD!
      – He/she is improving! [To be repeated after every episode.]
      – He/she is soooooo cute! [insert squee about dimples, abs, or the required nice/”adorkable” personality here].
      – What makes you such an expert on acting/directing/casting???
      – If you can’t say something nice, don’t say anything at all! [To be is alternately with the always zippy “Haters gonna hate!”]
      – and the final fangirl capper, β€œPeace!”

        Really?
        Besides, I’m no fangirl. And all I’m saying is that people can state their opinion, just with less chagrin, is all. This is entertainment people, not nuclear physics.

    • 47.2 ladida

      Yeah, the aggression is strong in this thread. smh

  48. 48 lemonade candy

    I change my mind. I’d watch everything KIm Jae Wook related… I mean, I survived show that must not be named in winter 2011… Why not this???

    I hope this show is good. Dammit, you better be good!

  49. 49 Cocoboo

    Kim Jae Wook looks so freaking handsome in that solo photo!!! *-* Only watched him in Coffee Prince and that was ages ago… Didn’t even finish it. x3 But I liked him.

    I can’t stand Taec though, so this drama is a pass.

    Why is he going to be second lead? The ghost is going to have more personality than the live male lead. Ugh this is going to tug on my heart strings but Kim Jae Wook! Torn.
