Choi Jin-hyuk considering lead in movie Trot

Well, this is one way to revive interest in trot music: Choi Jin-hyuk is being floated as a lead possibility for the movie Trot—which, by the way, bears no relation to the KBS drama being prepped titled Trot Lovers. I guess trot is just hot right now?

The role Choi is considering is described merely as that of a character “who dreams of a pure love.” Aw, I can see him and his crinkly-eyed smile handling that quite nicely. The movie depicts the lives and loves of the people of the Hwanghak-dong market in Seoul, so it sounds like a warm human drama—maybe not a pounding plot, but featuring small moments and relationships.

Choi Jin-hyuk recently wrapped work on his tvN weekend drama Emergency Couple—a role that widened his popularity though it sorta also cooled my love for him, though I mostly blame the writing—and is on the hunt for his next project. His reps confirmed that he’d received the screenplay and was taking a look, and would decide on his next project within the month. He’s also got another movie, the action-noir God’s Play, which has yet to be released.

Trot begins filming in May or June.

Enjoyed Emergency Couple with CJH and SJH. CJH is a handsome guy who can act and I found out - sings well too.

Loved him singing the OST "Scent of a flower" in the series and went hunting for OSTs that he sang in the dramas that he acted in - Heirs, Gu Family, and Panda and the Hedgehog.

He has a nice speaking and singing voice. He has potential to excel in this role!

Fighting CJH!

I actually like his smile in the picture up there, but NOT when he smiles really widely.

Ditto on his singing in general, but my favorite of them is 'Scent of A Flower'. The emotions sounded so earnest and raw in that one.

Choi Jin-hyuk's voice in general is really *THE VOICE* in my books.

It's not just deep (which is also the domain of many ajjushi's out there too ... srry Lee Seung-kyun!) but Choi Jin-hyuk's also has that special silvery timbre => this comes through in both his speaking and singing voice.

Emergency Couple cooled my love to the extent that I'm now hoping he'll just go to the army, already.

Two years is long enough to forget, right? :-/

I really like him but "Heirs" and "Emergency Couple" were two dramas that left me cold from the get-go.

I'm still waiting to see him as a lead in a really gripping drama.

PS: Any news on Jung Kyung Ho?

Wasn't he off to army? I remember reading about it at some point.

I wasn't actually gonna watch Emergency Couple because I didn't like CJH from his previous dramas (found him vastly overrated in the overrated GFB and his role in Heirs didn't help), but now I like him after watching EC. Good for him that he's being offered film roles. Would love to see him in another rom-com after his army duty.

Not much into the trot genre, but with Choi Jin Hyuk, I might dabble in it before it gets boring... However, I thought he was due for the army? Unless he still has time to delay it even more o___o

Best smile. (Seriously, when he smiles his whole BODY smiles.) And yeah, his role in Gu Book was my favorite so far. I didn't think his acting was poor in EC. I thought the writing was.

After watching Emergency Couple I have a soft spot for Choi Jin Hyuk so when I heard he was enlisting for the army this year I was saddened that we might not see more of him before he leaves but it seems like they're going all out.

I don't really get the offhand ragging on Emergency Couple, I thought Emergency Couple was decent enough. Bits of it were bad, but then I've never watched a K drama that didn't have bad writing at some point, and a final few episodes that mucked everything up.

What were you expecting, Shakespeare?

I am all for more movies and dramas with him.

He was fine in Emergency Couple. - seriously, the script didn't give anyone much to work with really, but it was definitely enjoyable enough.

It seems a lot of people want to see more of his bad-boy role in Gu Family book. Personally, I am glad that he is balancing it out with other roles. I think bad-boys are highly over rated.

I personally would like to see him in another rom-com before he enters service, a movie would not be long enough. I thought he was pretty versatile as CM in EC.

Oh, I totally thought of the drama when I was just scanned the headlines briefly...
Seriously, is there some Trot Marketing Board out there that's flinging money at movie and drama makers?

But I won't complain since I like him and that actually sounds like something I'd like to watch :D
(In contrast to EC which just didn't interest me at all...)

I had no idea what it was. But when I googled it...how fun! I'm thinking a summer meet-up with karaoke trot music might be in order.

Oh, and soju.

I just realized CJH is another hot and rising actor who got paired up with SJH just right before serving the army. This might be just a coincidence but does SJH like to choose co stars who would likely go to the army after the project wraps remember Jo In Sung?
