Ji Hyun-woo considers Trot Lovers as army comeback project

It’s always good news when another actor comes back from army duty, but even better when he returns with drama offers at the ready. Ji Hyun-woo (Queen Inhyun’s Man) is due to be discharged from active duty on May 6, and has received the offer to star in the KBS summer rom-com Trot Lovers. Eric was courted for the role but ultimately turned it down, and Ji Hyun-woo is now considering.

Trot Lovers is KBS’s next Monday-Tuesday drama about a geeeenius musician who turns the leading lady into a trot singer. Ji Hyun-woo is up for the role of the genius songwriter and top star (so, singer too?) who turns up his nose at lowbrow stuff like trot music. He then meets the heroine who’s obsessed with trot, and ends up helping her realize her talent.

The female lead has yet to be cast, but we should be getting news on that front pretty soon, since stories say that if he signs on, Ji Hyun-woo will go straight into shoots for his new drama once he’s back to civilian life. I hope he takes it because he’d be adorable in a light rom-com; it also doesn’t hurt that it would be the fastest turnaround post-army, and put him back on the small screen just a month after he returns. What, waiting two years makes a girl impatient, okay?

Trot Lovers follows Big Man in June.

Ok... so I know this is just celebrity gossip and I know it only partly relates to the post. Trust me, I'm excited to see Ji Hyun Woo in another drama (my first crush to go to the army!!)

But, are he and Yoo In Ah still a thing? I hope so!

Yes! I just watched QIHM again (literally completing it 5 minutes ago lol) in preparation for his return! And then here he is! Ahhhh. I missed him so much. I can't believe he's finally coming back. This would be fun to see him in! Aw yeah :) This summer is gonna be good.

Wow I really can't believe he's back already. The again, I probably read or watch queen inhyun at least every other month, so he's been pretty fresh. I just watched it two weeks ago without realizing he'd be back soon!!!

I can't wait to see him return, but I'll be honest...Kim boong do is a hard character to beat. That drama is probably one of the most unique dramas ever in that he wasn't a jerk at the beginning and both leads were unapologetically adorable from start to finish. QIHM is def in my top 3!!

Kim Boong Do!!

Im not really sure how I feel about this. I wasn't expecting Ji Hyun Woo to headline this drama, especially since the first choice was Eric. Don't get me wrong. I love Kim Boong Do as a character, but personally, the difference in acting bet Ji Hyun Woo and Eric is really great (Eric in Que Sera Sera is soooo awesome). I'm still reserving my judgement, though. Hopefully, the material showcase Ji Hyun Woo as an actor.

However, I'm curious, and hope someone can answer this. Why did Eric turn down the show (and consequently turn down what would be his comeback?) Is he busy? Are there other shows that are courting him? I start to worry if the script for Trot Lovers is not good that's why he turned this down...

I actually disagree about the acting. I'd say their skills are at around the same level and even if there is a difference, I don't think it's a great one. Yes, Kim Boong Do was a well-written character, but I think Ji Hyun-woo's portrayal went a long way in terms of making the character shine.

I actually adore these two equally, in fact, so if Eric had to turn it down (and there could be many reasons for that, other than a bad script) than I'm just grateful that someone I miss just as much has stepped in (hopefully).

I think Eric turned back the script because the character that he'll play is quite similar with Kang Woo in Spy Myong Wol. Eric is known as the actor who'll try to take different roles in dramas. So, I don't think it's because Trot Lovers script is that bad. And maybe he's quite busy with CEO activities too. I hope Eric will have chance to back on the screen too. With Yoon Eun Hye, will be a great bonus. Their chemistry on xman was no joke. And it seems YEH really had feeling for Eric at that time.

Anyway, good luck to Trot Lovers, whoever the leads in it..

There has been a lot of mention about Eric, Jung YM & Que Sera Sera that I went back to re-watch QSS (which I stopped half mark). And you know what, I couldn't finish it again/lost interest at exactly the same episode just like previous time. Me think it's a combination of difficult & antagonistic love coupled with exhaustion of watching them fight that I can't carry on.

And I'm so surprised to realize that I haven't changed much & so predictable at times....

Ok, I digressed. Welcome back Kim Boong Do!

When the news about the casting was out a few weeks ago i was kind of hoping that IU could be casted as the female lead, but now that Eric has turned down the offer and they're considering to cast Ji Hyun Woo instead, I think i'll take back my wish LOL it would be so weird for IU to act alongside her own BFF's boyfriend XD

OH NO. I was actually really hoping for that because I love her and if we need a singer, she'd be one of best bets to uphold the acting side of things. But, it would definitely be WAY too weird to do that with your best friend's boyfriend! And I love her and Yoo Inna's relationship :)

I completely disagree. IU would just be asking. She's close to Yoo In Na & respects Ji Hyun Woo. They were at her concert once & she brought them both on stage to sing & dance with her.

Coming right out of the military after 2 years & going right into a romantic TV series, if I was Yoo In Na, I would want the girl to be someone who respects me & also respects my love relationship. Who better to protect her? He's gotta make a living. He can do it & not worry about all the dang *shipping* by the fans. That way we can keep on *shipping* him with Yoo In Na. =) It's a win/win from my perspective.

hope he signs in! it always amuses me when an actor jumps straight into a project right after army (like lee dong wook!)

I'm interested in the female role more, instead of becoming an Idol, she want to become a trot singer!

I want IU but I also hoping for IU with Joo-won in Nodame Cantible. Hee hee.

Anyone watch Melody of Love, daily drama that starring SISTAR's Dasom, I think she is suitable too.

It always amazes me how quickly some celebrities return to work after they get discharged. I mean, I know 2 years out of the limelight is a long time in pop culture and fame is pretty fickle but don't they want a break? They just got out of the army. Aren't they exhausted? Don't they want some down time? It just seems crazy to me that they don't take a break before they start working again, especially given how hectic many celebrities' work schedules are. But idk, maybe it's a cultural thing.

I agree, JHW was quietly wonderful is many roles before QIHM. Adorable, touching, an AWESOME screen kisser - the best - and very very very very very very manly, OK, one more: VERY.

It is super that everyone loves QIHM. Watch his earlier stuff, too!!

Another series about a 'genius?' I'm beginning to think Korea has only geniuses, gangsters, rich people, and poor people w/shrill voices that constantly yell and want to marry rich people in spite of having to live with evil mother-in-laws who you hope will see your sincerity and love you in the end.

Have I omitted any types of Kdrama characters?
