Main cast secured for Three Days

Well, somebody just went on a casting spree. Upcoming action-thriller drama Three Days, which stars Yoochun as an elite bodyguard leading the search when the president goes missing from his villa, has lined up and confirmed the rest of its cast. So here we go.

So Yi-hyun (Who Are You, Alice in Cheongdam-dong) is now onboard to play one of the Blue House bodyguards. She’ll be the cold, serious, dutiful type who’s the brains of her department and plays an important role in unraveling the secrets shrouding the case as the good guys try to track down the sniper who opens fire at the villa.

I’ll admit to feeling a moment of sinking disappointment when I saw the headlines naming her as the female lead, but came back around to relief to hear that Park Ha-sun is also confirmed to play the other female lead. I don’t know which actress will have the bigger role but I really do hope it’s Park (she’s the local police officer who joins the case and helps Yoochun), because she’s the stronger actor and has had chemistry with her male co-stars before, whereas I’ve found So Yi-hyun cold and unapproachable in everything, even when she’s doing a decent job acting out the part. Or maybe three days is too short a time to develop a romance with our hero and Yoochun will be the sole star of the show, which I could live with.

As previously teased, Sohn Hyun-joo (Empire of Gold) will indeed play president, yay. He’s an amazing actor, and has so much range — he’s equally convincing being a badass mofo as he is being meek and heartfelt. His character grew up in an ordinary household, but his intelligence got him to Seoul National University and Harvard Business School, and he’s now a president with a strong focus on economic issues. He’s definitely too good to waste as a missing character without any screentime, so I’ll be crossing my fingers that Sohn will get a decent role to play despite being kidnapped/disappeared.

Joining the team is drama veteran Yoon Je-moon, who will play the chief presidential secretary. I guess that makes him one of the good guys, which is totally within his wheelhouse, though I do think he plays good villains. If by good I mean cracked and ragey, which I do when thinking back to The King 2 Hearts, where I always thought of him as a Rumplestiltskin who got his toys taken away.

As a 24-esque thriller that unfolds its entire series over a compressed period (three days, obvs), the drama will premiere in February on SBS.

Via Chosun, Joins

So Yi Hyun was a master in Gloria; I hope she gets to have some fun!

Idk why she rejected her role in you from the star, but when I read her character in three days, I think it more interesting than in "you from the star". And I heard this drama budget around 10 billion won,and they get veteran actor son hyunjoo,and I think his role in here bigger than yoochun's role

I'm glad both ladies signed on. I really like them both. I do agree that Park Ha Sun is the stronger actress but I think So Yi Hyun is pretty approachable. But then I am so shy and anti-social-ish who knows what that word even means for me. They are both bubbly, to me.

It doesn't seem like there will be a romance unless it's a pre-established one but I don't mind in the long scheme of things. It would probably work better without though. This is looking like a cool project!

Those 2 actors tend to get "meaty' roles, albeit not leading (tho every once in a while they do) since they don't have the "right" look for leads in a K-drama (more likely to get a lead in film).

I don't like much So Yi-hyun. For some reason this actress is hard to connect to, if anybody even know what I mean here. I really like the rest of the cast though. And maybe SYH will shine and prove me wrong about my apprehension regarding her acting.

Same here. I can't relate to So Yi-hyun. She is the biggest flaw, maybe even only flaw, in this cast. I'm a little disappointed now. Maybe I should check out Gloria before Three Days starts, but she was like a piece of wood in Who Are You? for me. :(

I don't think yoochun is a bad actor. He's probably one of the "better" idol turned actors but at the same time, his acting isn't anything to write home about. And yes, I've seen SKK Scandal, Roof top prince, miss ripley and I miss you. He's a decent actor at best. I love Park Ha Sun and Son Hyun Joo but kind of disappointed about Yoo Chun's casting.

0

Ikr? I was about to ask the same thing. I respect people's opinions on how they feel about an actor or actress but yoochun's character wasn't wooden in Rooftop Prince wooden O.o I could understand if some ppl thought he was overacting but wooden???

0

Er, I personally think he's what you would call "wooden" in the first half of SKKS (he got a lot better when his character allowed to show some emotions), and probably in Miss Ripley as well but, Rooftop Prince? I even thought he kind of over-reacted some of his comedic scenes there..

SKKS was his first try..ofc one doesnt bcome good in d frst try only...since then he has improved to miss ripley n even on rooftoop prince n then IMY ..n its not said by me.. its said by CRITICS who r expert in their field ..they have PRAISED his abilities and have seen POTENTIAL in him which some of the audience may not be able to see...Yoochun will definitely improve a lot more in this drama ... we can be sure of that..

Lets just keep an open mind and anticipate this drama.. we cant say its a sure hit or flop for now.. but the casts n the plot seems really interesting. FIGHTING!

I guess, different strokes for different folks. I personally find Yoochun a good one, not yet the best, there is room for improvement but definitely not wooden. He has subtlety that even some old timers lacks.

While I don't think he's wooden, there's something there that makes me think he lacks something I can't even fully explain. Or maybe I've been a DBSK fan for too long and can't separate Yoochun from whatever character he's playing.

He's definitely one of the better idol actors, but I think it's more of because he's had better roles/projects to hone that talent that he does have.

LOL i would call So Yi Hyun wooden but Yoochun? Are you serious? He must be a little bit wooden in the first half of SKKS but definitely improve in the 2nd half. And Rooftop Prince? really? we must be talking about a different Yoochun and a different drama because seriously, he is far from wooden in RP. I think your comment is very bias, even professionals and critics praises Yoochun's acting, they don't even consider him as idol-actor anymore but just an actor.

Have you seen Missing You? His crying scenes were the best among all the cast there.

OMG!! There are haters everywhere. Get your facts straight this was already being bought by different countries and they didn't even started filming yet. And a lot was offering a lot of momey just to buy this series. And there are a lot of investors willing to pay hundreds of thousand dollars (per episode) to invest in this drama.

I am not not replying to some of the above posters. Their posts seem as short and insightful as those in allkpop.

The casting looks really good. Both the younger and veteran actors. Seriously, have no idea where those " knowledgeable " drama critics comments came from. I actually care about the acting abilities besides the plot and writing in any drama. The cast- is not an inexperienced acting group.

Looking forward to this drama actually. You can't have too much time to be makjang if you have only 3 days. So at least for this show there there shouldn't be long break up scenes or too much brooding over anything.

Thank you for the update.

Yoochun can brood with the best of them, and of course brooding in the shower is always appreciated, but I could live without it if that meant dialing down the makjang and keeping up the pace.

True, but what about FLASHBACKS? Technically, only time forward counts.

They could do half of the episode in the past and still meet the three days premise. Tricksters!! LOL.

I'll watch for Yoochun (and just hope that once out of those three days that he'll be wearing one of his ripped wife-beater tees - yummm).

I get what JB says about So Yi-hyun. There's something about seeing her in a scene that's a tad off-putting, for me it's like she's too colorful/bright compared to everything around her. She usually has that bright pink lipstick on and her eyes look like she stuck a metal knife into a toaster - it's more than a startled look. I think her acting is okay, no Oscars in her future but must say that she did a decent job in Who Are You, particularly in those scenes where she played opposite her "dead" fiancée. She (and the writing) pulled on my usually cold heartstrings. That being said, I really don't like her as a romantic lead. SYH habitually wears that half-smile expression that looks (to me) like a sneer.

Interested to see how Yoon Je-moon does. He'll always be CrazyCakes to me!

I hate it when people start judging without actually check it out. I mean how come you commented something like "one word: flop" It sounds like butthurt or antis for me. Too shallow.

And to think that Three Days hasn't started filming yet. If you don't like the cast its fine, but at least give some credit or at least learn to appreciate someone's effort.

I'm a little worry of how they'll stretch 3 days into 24 episodes, unless they decided to add the past into the drama which sort of takes away the title of "Three Days". It reminds me of 'The Hostages' American show. That tv mini series has been receiving poor reviews and views. And I did not enjoy that show.

Ooohh. With Sohn Hyun Joo and Yoon Je Moon onboard, this shaping to be what I call (fingers-crossed) amazing.

Yoochun's a pretty decent actor, I honestly don't get why there's always a "hate" comment every time his casting news come out, is it because he's an idol? Tsk.

No complaints on Park Ha Seon and So Yi Hyun, I adore them and I'm just glad they both signed to this.

I'm especially a fan of writer Kim Eun Hee and her (not always perfect but) brilliant works, so yeah, bring it on! :)

This is shaping up to be a promising cast for a promising drama. I kind of hope we get some more good actors, because this show sounds so good, like Two Weeks on speed.

Though I've seen So Yi-hyun in more things, I've never really liked her characters. I didn't watch Who Are You so I have no comment on her in that, but in Alice in Cheongdam-dong, she was good, but her character was boring as the second lead. In Heartstrings, her character was also boring, but I liked her story in that one, especially since it moved aside for the main romance later on. Her character here sounds boring too, but she'll pull it off, I have no doubt. I just don't find her an appealing actress.

Park Ha-sun is just a better actress all around, I think. Her characters are interesting and/or funny, and she has more chemistry with her male partners. So I hope she's the female lead, since the dynamic that her character will have with Yoochun sounds a lot more interesting. I get the feeling they may bump heads, and tension of any kind is good.

Looking forward to this!

This Yoochun guy... sometimes he's good looking and sometimes his face is just a passable meh. I believe he still lacks in some areas but I'm hoping his acting will improve along side these actors.

I'm glad PHS accept this role...Yoochun, I always love him..People will say he lack here and there but I do believe he's still the best chunface who can act with many characters..People tend to forget even an A-list actors sometimes failed to portray different roles and only can stick with one genre..

After Secret, I dunno which drama should I follow after this since I've stopped watching TH & MHIYD..currently I'm loving Secret and Reply 1994..Will try watching "You From Another Star" while waiting for 3 Days..Fighting and wishing all the best to this drama

I say let's all give this a chance before we judge, as there isn't even any teaser yet to even judge. It has an interesting premise after all, and one that would be a pleasure to watch if executed correctly. I'm sure the folks producing this wouldn't have agreed to Yoochun's casting if he wouldn't be up to par to doing it, notwithstanding the great pull he has overseas. And also he's acting with veteran actors after all. On my part, this drama's first episode is definitely a must watch and I hope that Yoochun surprises me in this drama with an improved acting ability.

Why does it seems that a lot of people are prejudice against Yoochun? I think it will be best for everyone to hold their judgment until it airs then we can all decide and criticize.

Yoochun is popular, there is no doubt about it but even the writer of masterpieces like ‘Sign’ and ‘Ghost’, Kim Eun Hee, noticed him and invited him to act on 3 Days. She has never based her casting choice solely on public popularity but instead chooses serious actors with solid acting. As such, Park Shin Yang was casted for ‘Sign’ and So Ji Sub for ‘Ghost’.

One's popularity can only get one too far, I believe. But coupled with talent and a good working attitude then success is not too far away. A lot of people from critics to producers to scriptwriter to directors have commended Yoochun for his solid acting and I think they are more qualified than a lot of us to pass judgment.
