Drama Casting & News
Yoon Eun-hye considers time-travel drama Mi-rae’s Choice
by | August 12, 2013 | 132 Comments

More casting possibilities are in the headlines with Yoon Eun-hye (I Miss You) reportedly taking a look at KBS’s upcoming time-travel drama Future Choice, which we can now start calling Mi-rae’s Choice instead because, as expected, the heroine’s name totally IS Mi-rae. (Mirae = future.) Ah, wordplay. (Although, this one was so flatly obvious that it almost doesn’t even qualify as a legit pun.)

I’d heard vague whisperings of Yoon being courted for the show, but now that the news has made its way into the official news cycle, perhaps she’s closer to signing on. Her management company confirmed on August 12 that she has received the offer and is looking at it favorably, though the final decision has yet to be made.

This drama sounds very heroine-centric (as if the title weren’t clue enough) as the main character Mi-rae manages to find a way to travel back in time (details on the method are yet undisclosed) to give her past self life advice. Uh, this seems like a bad idea in SO MANY obvious ways (self-inflicted poofing! Have we learned nothing from Back to the Future?) that I am really curious to know how Mi-rae thinks she can get away with this. Because to even consider this plan, she is either very clever or, um, the other thing.

The present-day timeline is set in a broadcast station, with Mi-rae employed as a maknae writer. Up for a leading role is Lee Dong-gun (Smile Again, Lovers in Paris, Sweet 18), who would play a broadcast announcer, while Jung Yong-hwa (You’ve Fallen For Me, You’re Beautiful) had been previously announced as considering the role of a PD character.

It’s unclear whether Jung Yong-hwa is still with the showโ€”he’d never confirmed in the first place and the latest news involving him dates back a monthโ€”or whether he would be relegated to second lead status. The initial reports described his PD role as a main character who has a loveline with the heroine, but I can’t imagine Lee Dong-gun not getting top billing in this scenario. I can picture Jung playing the second lead who still gets some romantic plotlines, but will he be content to play second fiddle? We’ll have to wait and see how it shakes out.

Lee Dong-gun has been out of army duty for over a year, but his last drama was 2008’s MBC drama with Kim Sun-ah, When Night Comes (also called Every Night). It’s been so long since I’ve seen him in anything, but I think I’m cool with the idea of him and Yoon Eun-hye being romantic partners. For one, she has mad chemistry with practically everyone… though admittedly I can’t quite picture her romancing Jung Yong-hwa. Then again, she and Yoo Seung-ho made it work. Kind of. You know, if murderous insanity can be considered part of an effective screen romance.

Mi-rae’s Choice, to be written by Beethoven Virus and The King 2 Hearts writer Hong Jin-ah, will be a Monday-Tuesday drama to follow Good Doctor, which puts its premiere in October.

    I hope to god Lee Dong-gun is the lead….I love Yonghwa’s music and he seems sweet, but apart from a surprisingly good turn in one episode of You’re Beautiful (as in, Jang Geun-seok and Park Shin-hye didn’t have to do all the work in those scenes) acting is really not his calling.

    • 1.1 skelly

      Totally agree. Fortunately, it appears Yonghwa – or his management company, for the fangirl version – will accept nothing less than a lead role. So we may escape his wooden acting one more time. I am really hoping that YEH can bring something out in Lee Dong Gun; Kim Sun Ah definitely failed, because he did a total sleep-walk through When It’s At Night. It was so obvious that he did not want to be there.

      • 1.1.1 KDaddict

        Everyone seemed to have been sleep-walking thru When It’s Night! One of the flattest dramas to sit thru.

        • Maon

          Well, it _was_ at night…ba dum tssshhh

        • sa

          well talking abt when its night sure it wasn’t the greatest but it wasn’t so bad though the drama was based on treasury national so might get u dull but it wads intersting .there r many flat dramas than this like i miss u for istance

      • 1.1.2 YY

        Most boring show ever. Everybody just kept running about and jabbering on and on about antiques. I snoozed through the entire drama.

    • 1.2 anais

      I’m so, so, so glad to hear of Lee Dong Gun making his way back onto the small screen.

      I wondered whether he was going to leave the business forever after his younger brother was murdered back in 2008 (?).

      I think When It’s At Night must have been around that time, maybe his project right after the murder. It was the drama that made me dislike Kim Sun Ah and wonder whether the writer had gotten a lobotomy.

      Hopefully, this one will be better.

    • 1.3 skinnymocha

      Erm, I can’t imagine Lee Dong Gun playing second fiddle to Yonghwa. No way.

  2. MeeisLee

    Time travel is *so* 2012, get with the times, Show~

    All jokes aside, I’m hoping this will be the drama to break YEH’s cycle of meh-ugh choices over the past few years.

    • 2.1 mandelbrotr

      MeeiseeLee, You beet me so it. ๐Ÿ™‚

    • 2.2 Kiara

      Lol and nothing will beat Queen In-hyun’s Man so enough already.

    • 2.3 Rachel

      Totally agree on YEH’s recent choice of dramas – she really needs to get the bandwagon of winning dramas instead of loser or way-too-much-sobbing dramas (ie Lie To Me, I Miss You).

      This kinda reminds me a bit more of Nine than of QIHM? Though this is based on a vague impression of the story in Nine.

      I guess I can understand Jung Yong Hwa’s wanting to push for a lead role for himself but honestly.. There are better actors out there gunning for lead roles too. I still feel like he hasn’t really proven himself to be a really good actor – Heartstrings was a nice fuzzy drama but not really a piece of work you’d want to put on your CV to say ‘hey I’m lead role-worthy’.

      And.. I’ve learnt not to be attracted to a drama based on the writer’s CV.

  3. sogazelle

    Awwwww…I’m so happy that YEH will be back in dramaland.

    I’ve never seen Lee Dung Gun in anything since it hasn’t been long since I discovered Kdramas, but the guy looks gorgeous…

    I hope he has acting chops, and I hope they make a great pair.

    • 3.1 Rubysing

      Oooh, you must look for and watch Sweet 18. It remains one of my most favourite dramas. Great chemistry and lots of cuteness between him and Han Ji Hye. They became OTP for a while, then broke up. Poor chap – he was devastated when his younger brother got killed in Sydney.

      • 3.1.1 Rubysing

        OTP from reel life to real life

  4. Alyyy

    I like this writer’s works. But URGH I’m sick and tired of word puns on dramas’ titles! It used to be funny, now it’s just overdone.

    Jung Yong-hwa is perfect Second Lead material… but not so much Lead material. I just don’t think he has it in him.

    I keep waiting to hear about specific actors coming back with new dramas (preferably as leads), namely: Lee Ji Ah, Min Hyo-rin, Jung So Min, Shin Dong Wook, Lee Jung Jae…

    • 4.1 Annie

      Did you know that Lee Jung Jae was rumored to be the original choice for Man from the Stars? Apparently the male lead character is actually a university lecturer/professor and the female lead is a student.

      But then he chose a movie instead. Bah.

      • 4.1.1 Alyyy

        Boo! ๐Ÿ™ that role would have been so awesome!

  5. rinka

    Hmm, so is her present self goes back to the past or her future self goes back to present? I hope it’s the latter ’cause the former one has been done before.
    And I’m surprised LDG hasn’t been in anything for that long. Here’s hoping he doesn’t lose his skill.

    • 5.1 Windsun33

      This sounds an awful lot like the US TV drama “Dating rules from my future self”, and the J-drama “13-sai No Hello Work”.

  6. Annie

    I’m pretty sure Lee Dong Gun is first lead because his character’s name was originally Kim Sun Taek (as in Mi-Rae’s Sun Taek… hah, even more puns) but was changed in later articles to be Kim Shin… and also because, y’know, he’s Lee Dong Gun. Synopses change all the time so I wouldn’t be surprised if Hong Jin Ah floated an old/stop-gap version while waiting for a more senior actor to confirm.

    On the other hand, if JYH is the male lead in this one or has substantial screen time, I give up on K dramas and the need to appeal to Korean and Japanese tweens. I’m DONE, do you hear me?!

    • 6.1 Anonymous

      I hope it’s not Mirae’s Suntaek, because that’s too close to Joo-gun’s Taeyang

  7. Lilian

    Yoon Eun Hye news! Makes me think of Kim Jong Kook =P

    haha…I liked King2 Heart. So may give this a try, but the cast isn’t even confirmed yet so won’t get my hopes up yet!

  8. snow__white

    I liked Lee Dong Gun a lot in Sweet 18 and I hope he confirms the drama…..
    King 2 Hearts writer…..i’m interested….

    Not a fan of YEH….but I like her….

    • 8.1 Alexis

      I also liked him in Sweet 18 and Partners (smoldering screen presence) and not a fan of YEH. Never thought she could act, but then again it seems sub par or talent-less actresses and idols keep getting lead roles. JYH definitely needs smaller roles and more experience.

  9. Mohammed

    Im a big YEH fan and hope she gets Lee Dong Gun as the male lead because i cant stand idols who cant really act.

    I havent seen any drama with Jong Yong-Hwa but i have seen bad versions of his type too often being a big weakness in good dramas.

  10. 10 Aint

    A Lee Dong-gun-Yoon Eun-hye has been in my OTP Radar after they did a collab mv via “Salad song” .

    Hope this pairing pushes through. Though, i would really want YEH to do a different genre like historical but that can wait…

  11. 11 Faye

    I don’t know that I call myself a fan of YEH, but I do think she is very talented and has chemistry with a lot of actors (if it makes sense to say that; I think it’s possible to recognize talent and chemistry in others, even if it doesn’t specifically appeal to you). I’ve never seen a Lee Dong-Gun drama (is Lovers in Paris worth the time investment?), so I might check this one out.

    As for Yong-Hwa, I’m not getting involved in that mess anymore :). There’s been so much drama with him and Heirs, him and this show, fan wars about his motivations and his lack or possession of acting skills that I’m kind of tapped out at this point. If he’s in, fine, if he’s not, also fine. He won’t really influence my decision to watch.

    Also (small voice of shame) . . .I rather liked “Lie to Me.” Was it a technically good drama? Probably not. Did they run out of plot toward the end and basically half-ass the last few episodes? Most definitely. But it was sort of engaging and entertaining, and I liked YEH and Kang Ji-Hwan together.

    • 11.1 Mar

      I will second you on Lie To Me, as not that bad. It definitely faltered but did have it’s good points. And YEH and Kang Ji-hwan is a pairing that I would not mind getting to see again.

      I think I will watch LTM again in a lull. Maybe over Winter Break.

    • 11.2 Penny

      I liked it, too. There were times when it was really good and she and Kang Ji-Hwan worked well together. I think it’s one of those dramas where the end is really not-so-good and it colors the rest of the drama.

      Of course, it was something like the third K-drama I ever watched so I might feel differently if I was watching it now.

      • 11.2.1 eny

        so I’m not alone, the half episode is good, the acting is OK, just in the half way end, it’s predictable
        I wanna see her in good drama, I’m not interested with I miss you because I’m not trust the male lead acting in melodrama

    • 11.3 bd

      Eh, LTM is the typical bad K-drama/romcom – storyline full of cliches, stereotypical characters and inane plotlines that don’t go anywhere and are abruptly dropped or have some ridiculous happening to tie up a plot point.

      It belongs with “Secret Garden”, “Big” and maybe RTP (it, at least had the Joseon Power Rangers) on my list of K-romcom infamy.

      • 11.3.1 Faye

        To be honest, that describes quite a lot of K-dramas though, doesn’t it? Even the ones with more sophisticated production values (“Shark,” I’m looking at you). But there can still be entertainment value to such shows, which I felt Lie to Me had (up until the end when they gave up entirely).

    • 11.4 pogo

      Definitely one of the more ‘meh’ kdramas I’ve watched, but the leads were easily the best thing about it.

      Also I owe my discovery of Sung Joon to that drama (and then I dramawikied him and felt like a perv on finding out his age) so I cannot hate. Not too much, anyway.

    • 11.5 melmax

      I enjoyed Lie To Me too… YEH & KJH had great chemistry… I hope this pairing comes true… Soon..

  12. 12 trotwood

    I have to put a shout out to the Lee Don Gun fans out there. I will really be glad to see him back on my screen. He can be heart breaking and I am expecting the kind of chemistry between them that YEH had with Kang Ji Hwan because the man can do smoulder like he was born to cook bacon on his shoulders. Wow, that metaphor did not come out right. I should probably have lunch first. But you guys have to know what I mean, right? Right? . . . (crickets)

    Sigh. Just look at one of the episodes of Lovers in Paris when he DOES NOT get the girl.

    • 12.1 Waiting

      “… the man can do smoulder like he was born to cook bacon on his shoulders.”

      That comment is EPIC! LOLOLOLOL

      Thank you for the tears of laughter rolling down my cheeks. ๐Ÿ˜€

      • 12.1.1 Waiting

        Forgot to say that this is now my new method of evaluating smoulder…

        Ya, XXXX is good, but can he cook bacon on his shoulders?


        • anais


    • 12.2 Faye

      Thank you for that visual. I am now imagining a man-version of Lady Gaga’s meat dress . . .

    • 12.3 Mar

      Bacon-Shoulders, oh my, that’s a quotable quote. I’m writing this down. And this is that guy’s forever nickname in my mind.

      • 12.3.1 Mar

        Smoulder Shoulders….

      • 12.3.2 YY

        Bacon head? Hm, sounds wrong, somehow….

  13. 13 dora

    Yoon Eun Hye AND time travelling, oh goodie. I hope she signs on, and if she does, I hope it doesn’t disappoint me like her I miss you. I want more fun dramas with her, like Goong and Coffee Prince, dramas where she shines. Take care of the young lady and I miss you were bad choices, though, so if this drama is like those, I hope she takes a pass.

    • 13.1 bibimbap

      I think I Miss You was not a bad choice as it was a solidly written script. I have watched all the episodes and I could attest to its coherence. If your preference are fun dramas then I would understand why you would not like it. But it certainly does not fall under the category of bad choices for YEH.

      Take Care of the Young Lady, on the other hand, was a choice based on the original script which unfortunately was changed midway and was objectively unfair to YEH but the pro that she is, she honored her contract to the end.

      • 13.1.1 curiousyeh

        I agree with you bibimbap. I Miss You was a good choice.

        YEH succeeded in her first melodrama. Acting wise YEH had proven that she can do other genres. I’m so happy that she did IMY.

        YEH had the amazing chemistry with her most of her drama partners, including Park Yoo Chun.

        YEH picked Take Care of Agasshi because of the original script.

      • 13.1.2 melmax

        I Miss You was solid, YEH can do any genre… comedy, drama and of course she ain’t too bad with variety shows either….

    • 13.2 pogo

      She actually did a really good job in I Miss You, it let her show a range that none of her previous dramas brought out (YEH playing bitter and angry was amazing, even if the drama was buckets of tears).

      Even if the drama itself wasn’t fantastic, it was solid and her performance couldn’t really be faulted – I feel like she grew as an actress from the experience. And I’d really like to see her bring some of that improved/expanded range into her newer roles, so I’m excited for this.

    • 13.3 lalala

      For me, I chose I Miss You was the best project she did so far..I love her in Goong & Coffee Prince but IMY is a heavy drama that challenge her role so much..Actually after My Fair Lady & LTM, I nearly don’t want to want her dramas anymore coz i’m quite disappointed with those two projects but IMY brings me back to love her again^^

      • 13.3.1 lalala

        *to watch

  14. 14 Waiting

    I like both leads and have wanted to see Lee Don Gun in a drama again.

    Is it me or do Lee Don Gun and Jung Yong Hwa resemble each other? Little brother role may be a good idea.

    • 14.1 Mar

      Yes, I can the resemblance.

  15. 15 Juby

    I’m so excited for Yoon Eun Hye’s possible comeback project! She’s my favorite K-actress and the idea of her pairing up with Lee Dong Gun is great. They did a song collaboration back in 2008 and judging from the MV, they had chemistry ๐Ÿ˜‰

  16. 16 Emmy

    Ahhhh! King 2 Hearts writer? Lee Dong-Gun?
    I’m in!

    I’m torn about YEH, her last drama projects were terrible. It’s a pity because she had majorly successful dramas when she was younger.

    Hopefully the magical mix of Lee Dong-Gun and writer Hong will revive her drama career!

    Couldn’t care less about Younghwa. I don’t mind if he’s in as long as he’s the second male lead.

  17. 17 mira

    Lie to Me wasn’t good ? Really ?
    I definitely loved it. Won’t call myself a YEH fan and Lie to me was my first Kang Ji Hwan drama. So I was pretty unbiased but still absolutely loved it. The ending was draggy, yes. But still so much better than so many other dramas and it’s actually one of my most favorite. I am surprised to see ppl finding it looser type(whats that?).
    Anyway every one has their different taste ๐Ÿ™‚
    Excited for this drama. Lee Dong Gun fan of-course.
    Just a bit disappointed that his first drama after coming back from military would be a time travel one (never my type)

    • 17.1 PollyRose

      I’m with you on Lie to Me. It was one of my first dramas and the reason I’m still watching a year and half later. Sometimes dramas are helped by not having any preconceived notions of what a “good” one should be. I can look back now and see that it has flaws, but at the time I loved it. I loved the chemistry between the leads and it made me a fan of both.

      • 17.1.1 zodd

        Low standards…..

  18. 18 ...

    Can JB tell me if YEH got better at her pronunciation?

    heard some korean friends not happy about YEH being in the drama because they dislike how she talks and didn’t like how she talked on I miss you.

    Is it true? I don’t know korean so I can’t know …

    someone there?

    • 18.1 javabeans

      Her pronunciation is fine but her enunciation is… mumbly. Not crisp. I can see why this would bother people. I don’t mind it.

      • 18.1.1 ...

        Oooh thanks so much!

      • 18.1.2 krung

        Her enunciation was no longer an issue during Missing You. So I dont get why some people try to bring up her past flaws, when she has already corrected it.

        • curiousyeh

          I’m also wondering why some people are bringing up the old issue.

          I was also told that Koreans noticed the improvement of YEH’s enunciation in Lie to Me and I Miss You.

          People have different taste. It’s not my style of criticizing other celebrities. But others did that because persons have different personality.

  19. 19 Noelle

    I miss her but all her drama choices have sucked. Lie to Me had promise in the beginning and then it just flatlined. Crazy chemistry in that one.

    Seeing Lee Dong Gun would be awesome since I did watch that one drama with him and Kim Sun Ah. Was boring but had it’s moments. Plus wasn’t Song Joong Ki in it? Maybe that’s why I held on to the end. Anyway a little late on the time travel extravaganza that was.

    • 19.1 Kiara

      She should get together with Moon Geun Young and figure out why they cant get a decent project lately.

      • 19.1.1 Kiara

        Song Joong Ki was not in it. I think you are talking about “When It’s at Night?.

      • 19.1.2 Amy

        I was just thinking of the same thing…LOl. YEH and MGY are both great actresses but for some strange reason, their last few projects were just meh.

  20. 20 lily

    Am I the only one that thinks Lee Dong Gun and Jung Yong Hwa look alike? LDG basically looks like his older brother.

    I’m not fond of time travel either but how can people complain about this when they’re probably excited for the hot mess that is Heirs aka BOF 2.0

    • 20.1 verlaine

      omg same here! i don’t know how but they look like.

  21. 21 Katie

    Um…can we get Kang Ji Hwan to consider this as well? Hehe Lie to Me was all sorts of wrong even though it’s one of my fav kdramas and I want to see them in something again. I know it’s rare to get couples to be couples in other dramas but my fingers are always crossed.

  22. 22 anna

    I’m not a big fan of the casts, but we don’t have enough time travelling heroines, it’s always the dudes so bring this on! I’m looking forward to this.

  23. 23 Hmm

    Sounds like a broadcast version of Nine.

  24. 24 ilikemangos

    I’m so sick and tired of time traveling after i watched one so 2012 was not the year for me — but i cannot turn down the writer of my favorite k-drama (K2H) and this potentially hot pairing.
    So yeah, i’m going to check this show out.

    • 24.1 MEK

      but its YEH

      • 24.1.1 zodd

        Who hasn’t been anything good in years.

  25. 25 Maris

    Love YEH. Would watch her anytime. Will be great seeing her again. ๐Ÿ™‚

  26. 26 KimYoonmi

    While I will most likely watch this drama, and I’m happy for her, I am sad that she’s not going for an SBS drama for my own selfish reasons. Hello, Running Man episode 200~ Pleaseeeeee~

    Though I’d scream if she showed up on Running Man with Lee Minki. The meta, the mayhem… the games… Bong Seon would only be icing..

    • 26.1 PollyRose

      Wow…that’d be amazing! I’ll be selfish too ๐Ÿ™‚ Ah well, though it may not be SBS, maybe they’ll still encourage her to go on for the sake of promotion. I’m sure some people would follow her to a new show if they got to see that.

  27. 27 bluemoon

    Oh Gosh! It has been so long since I’ve seen Lee Dong Gun in anything. He was one of those actors when I first started Korean dramas that I adore so much.

    Welcome back Lee Dong Gun! I hope you signed onto this drama.

    I can see YEH romancing LDG too!

  28. 28 saranga

    has jung yong-hwa even earned lead material status yet? (i don’t think so). even second lead seems enough for him. personally, i don’t think he has what it takes to be leading man material. i’ve never considered him particularly good looking, he’s not tall, not particularly charismatic, and his acting ability is limited. not saying that he can’t improve and totally shock us somedayโ€”it’s happened before. but he’s gotta be willing to work from the bottom and prove himself first.

    he’s just not a suzy. suzy has other qualities (hard to define) that make up for her acting. so he’s got to work his way up. he’d be better off picking solid supporting roles and doing well at those. heirs hasn’t aired yet, but i’m interested to know which supporting role he reportedly passed up in his quest for a leading role elsewhere.

    • 28.1 nice

      Well, good looks is very subjective. I find him a very attractive man, the type that becomes more attractive as you get to know more.

      What’s with the comparison with Suzy though? That’s so random. “He’s not just a Suzy.Suzy has “other qualities that make up for her acting”…implying Yonghwa has none? Do you even know that much about the guy to even say that?

    • 28.2 addictedtoyou

      What does Suzy have to do with this? “Suzy has other qualities….”… Do you even know anything about Yonghwa to compare him to Suzy like that? errr.

    • 28.3 Hmm...

      Jung Yong-Hwa got a second lead role in You Are Beautiful before his band even made a debut in Korea.

    • 28.4 silvergate08

      “suzy has other qualities?” i dont get this…

      looks like you dont know a thing about yonghwa.

      he is not be voted most aniticipated celebrity in this year if he doesnt have this “other qualities”

      i know he is not a good actor but saying he has no other qualities is like errrrrr……..

    • 28.5 pogo

      I’d actually consider him and Suzy about the same level, with a slight edge, acting-wise. Their variety/idol personalities are not something I know much about, so based purely on what I see on-screen, all I see is pretty people who really can’t act and both have a long way to go before they’re even fit for proper second lead roles, forget about first lead (Park Shin-hye did all the heavy lifting in Heartstrings but at least that was adequate enough to let him not suck too much in comparison, but watching Lee Seung-gi with her in Gu Family Book got kind of boring thanks to the non-acting and non-chemistry. I actually wonder how bad Yonghwa would be if he worked opposite another leading lady besides PSH, now)

      • 28.5.1 haha

        that’s exactly what I have been waiting for- to see him act with different girls… Because it seems like PSH and their real life chemistry have saved him both times lol

    • 28.6 charlie

      I agree with the 1st paragraph…Jung Yong Hwa should stick to music. I don’t understand how someone who can be expressive muscially be so wooden on screen…

      Suzy has a ways to go with her acting, but she is a better actor than Yong Hwa…

  29. 29 MEK

    YAY…YEH is back…i just love her…

  30. 30 Quimby

    Why does everyone talk of Yong Hwa like he’s the proud one not wanting anything but the first lead? He said he was willing to do Colin in AGD if Jong Hyun didn’t. Considering he’s the second lead here, it’s obviously NOT him that turned down Heirs in the first place. Also, Lee Dong Gun is in the same agency as him, so it’s unlikely “he” will be the one not “content to play second fiddle”.

    Also, it’s awkward to me that he’s considered not like “Suzy”. His debut AND the first break was in You are beautiful. He’s not some idol that jumped on the acting bandwagon using his fame. As a nobody, he had auditioned for Shin Woo, got the role, and rose to stardom BY ACTING. Whether or not you liked his performance in it, that shows people actually found him charming in a drama (actually a lot more when they didn’t know he was a singer). I remember all the drama fansites buzzing and spazzing about this new fresh face. I also found his acting to be much improved and sensible in Heartstrings despite the terrible script. Personally looking forward to his role here, I think the younger guy character would suit him quite well.

      it isn’t Yh but his greedy company that wants that. YH had to go out of Heirs and he was very excited to do the role and upset when he got to know he wasn’t going to do it anymore, but then days after what his company did? Casted one of his band members on the drama! After using the ”too busy with their japanese concerts” as excuse!

      well, who knows if any of what you said is true…

      sometimes music companies/labels are investors in a drama or negotiate contracts and are able to get their idols in a dramas in return for the music they provide as part of the deal

    What a very very great news for me!!!!
    I ‘not just love YEH but Lee Dong Gun also, which I’ve been waiting his comeback drama till now. Omg, this will be drama I must watch, more suprisingly Jung Yong Hwa also added in this drama. YEAHH!!!
    YEH and LDG chemistry will be great, they have been a singing project together sing about Salad Song, and LDG was part of FNC Ent which Ying Hwa also part of FNC management.
    Just give chance to JYW to exploring his act skill, maybe with sunbae like YEH and LDG, he could improve better.
    Trust the writer, cause I think his/her lastest piece King 2 Heart was very good result even it rating wasn’t good compare from Rooftop Prinve, but it because the same timing to Idol drama ๐Ÿ˜€

    finally, YEH has returned, I have been waiting a long time for a new project, I really love her performance, she is unique, has its own style, what else I can say that this story has made me so happy.

    Not a fan of YEH but I liked The King 2 Hearts a lot so I might give this a try. Hopefully this is just as good as the writer’s last drama.

    I’m not really like LDG but he’s not bad, just always act in the same charracter that make me doesn’t see him special but I see him in many interesting drama: Lovers in Paris, Sweet 18 n Stained Glass. So I think I will check it
    Really love Stained Glass,…………love Kim Sung Soo as Park Ki Tae

  35. 35 mia

    why are people assumed Yonghwa only wants to play the male lead?he never indicated so
    he’s level headed and he knows his capability,he’s okay playing the second lead

    the issue with Heirs is actually between FNC and the drama production and it’s solved by minhyuk addition and most probably FNC will produce the drama OST

    Lee Dong Gun is actually in the same agency as Yonghwa,so most likely FNC lobbied LDG for the lead role after they got Yonghwa in the drama

    i would watch these two sitting on a bench reading books (in various positions) for the whole damn drama.

    YEH is a great kisser and LDG is a great kisser and if we get both of them together, we’d be getting great kissing scenes to rival Cruel City’s. But how does time travel fit into this drama? Let’s just skip it and have a simple plot with lots of eye contact, abs and pouty misunderstandings. Oh, and kissing, of course. And maybe throw in a bonus of LDG singing lustily in a hot bubbling tub.

    Can I just please please get a YEH-Gong Yoo pairing again? I’m sorry but I’m really addicted to them. ๐Ÿ™ Pretty please, drama gods?

  39. 39 anais

    LUUUUURVE Lee Dong Gun. He had me with Lovers in Paris. Heartbreak. Then, had me cackling with Sweet 18. Then, turned on with Changing Partners where he manhandled Um Jung Hwa, a woman 11 years his senior. Sizzle.

    That man had a BOD to die for BEFORE he went into the army, so I can only imagine what he must look like now.

    Come back, come back.

    Lee Dong-gun I miss you! Just 2 weeks ago I watched “Perhaps Love”. This is good news!

  41. 41 ilayla

    My dear is back and i am happy to death …I love YEH sooooooooooooooooo much.

  42. 42 cheliwel

    If this does pan out I’m actually excited to see YEH and LDG as leads together. I loved him in LIP and broke my heart when he didn’t get the girl. I also haven’t watched any of YEH’s work after Goong so hopefully this one will push thru.

  43. 43 idon'tknow

    congratulation your return yeh,& i hope u’ll find the love in yours;wait for casting lee dong gun & jung yong hwa,too.thanks share ^^

  44. 44 laserbeanz

    Omg… the show is a copy of ” Nine time traveller”…
    the story baseline is almost the same. In Nine time traveller, Lee jin wook is a news announcer & the actress is his maknae. LJW time traveller back to prevent his father passed away.
    Its a fantastic show for year 2013. I recommend everyone to watch it!!!

    wonder how the writer will tell ” future choice” story out from the shadow of “Nine time traveller”.

  45. 45 Okitat

    Bacon shoulders.. Hahah!
    Although if it was me, I would prefer to cook the bacon on LDG’s abs & torso instead! Hawt hawt!!!

    So excited that YEH is heading for a new drama with LDG. Its good news. I love all of YEH dramas especially I MISS YOU. I love the incredible chemistry she had with PYC. I still can’t get over it. I love this lovely couple. Hope to see her again with PYC in another drama. Is my dream……

    • 46.1 lalala

    If it’s a time-travel story, I’ll be so there. Hoping this doesn’t turn out like a kind of Peggy Sue Got Married PLUS Proposal Daikusen plot. Having fallen for the wrong/poor/etc guy, she goes back in time to change matters, etc. Wasn’t there a Japanese drama last season about a man who tried to give advice to his younger self?
