Eric offered lead in rom-com drama Trot Lovers
Eric — old-school boy-band idol and 4-D Shinhwa leader Eric — is currently considering the lead role in the upcoming KBS drama Trot Lovers, and the image clash is just too strange not to be perfect. I want this. I want this now.
Okay, granted Trot Lovers is about a young woman with trot-singing talent, not a young man — so Eric, sadly, wouldn’t be the trot vocalist warbling onstage in glittery sequined jackets and swiveling his hips to the delight of halmaes everywhere. The leading man role is of a genius songwriter, with whom the heroine works to develop into a bona fide trot singer. Still, I love the idea of him doing another romantic comedy after doing more serious stuff (even though I will forever and always love him in Que Sera Sera), because he has a deadpan humor that I really enjoy.
Eric’s agency, Shinhwa Company, confirmed that he’d received the offer and the script and is in talks over the role, but hasn’t yet decided on the project. Trot Lovers is being planned to follow KBS’s next Monday-Tuesday drama Big Man, which puts its premiere in June.
