News bites: December 27, 2014

  • Im Shi-wan is hot, hot, hot after his appearance in Misaeng; it’s said he’s received nearly 50 scripts and offers and that he’s currently reviewing them all as he vacations in the Philippines with the Misaeng team (now that’s what I call a wrap party!). He’ll likely select a movie for his next project, but fingers crossed he comes back to dramaland (for Misaeng 2 and other projects) soon. [Osen]
  • KBS has a new weekend drama in the works titled Bluebird’s House, which will air after the conclusion of What’s With This Family. Han Joo-wan (Joseon Gunman) has been offered the lead and is positively considering, while Jin Kyung-soo (Plus Nine Boys) is also contemplating a role. Meanwhile, veterans Chun Ho-jin (Doctor Stranger) and Choi Myung-gil (Punch) have confirmed they’ll play supporting parts: Chun is a man with masterful entrepreneurial skills, while Choi Myung-gil is a pleasant and gentle woman who holds a lot of remorse inside. When Choi learns that Chun’s character deliberately abandoned her first love as he was dying, she sets out for revenge. While that’s a dramatic subplot, the show’s overall theme will be about youths overcoming ordeals and their personal growth. Still, with 50 episodes, they’ll have plenty of time to flesh out ancillary storylines. Bluebird’s House will begin in February. [Dong A, XSports News]

  • Han Joo-wan

  • Hyeri (of girl group Girl’s Day and JTBC’s Seonam Girls’ High Investigators) has landed a role in Hyde, Jekyll, Me as a girl who’s got a puppy-love crush on Hyun Bin’s character. She’ll play a college student majoring in playwriting, who’s smart but goofy. She’s also got crazy energy and a strong sense of curiosity, and she’ll bombard Hyun Bin with declarations of love. Hyde, Jekyll, Me airs after the conclusion of Pinocchio on SBS in January. [SBS fun E]
  • Choi Won-young (Secret Door) will be joining the cast of Kill Me, Heal Me, which stars Ji Sung and Hwang Jung-eum. He’ll play the hero’s confidante who helps him deal with his seven split personalities. And whoa, it’s been 17 years since Kan Mi-yeon debuted as a singer with girl group Baby V.O.X., and remarkably, she hasn’t aged a bit (I want whatever she and Jang Nara are having!). She’ll try her hand at acting for the first time with a bit part in the drama as a mysterious woman. Kill Me, Heal Me premieres January 7 on MBC. [Joy News, Star News]

  • Choi Won-young, Kan Mi-yeon

  • Filming has begun on FHM—Friend (or FHM 2), the Chinese drama and second collaboration between Park Hae-jin and Jin Hyuk PD. They had such a blast working together on Doctor Stranger, they’re doing it all over again, with much of the same crew. Zhang Liang and Xue Zhiqian are joining them, and the show will tell the stories of men in their 30s—their friendships, ambitions, dreams and loves. Park will play a warmhearted man who is as sweet as an angel. FHM—Friend airs in China in 2015. [XSports News]
  • Park Jung-min (formerly of idol group SS501) has had to pull out of tvN’s upcoming Monday-Tuesday drama, Ho-gu’s Love. After experiencing neck and back pain, he sought medical attention and was advised that there was significant damage to his spine. He’s going to focus on treatment, and tvN is now searching for someone to pinch-hit for the character. Ho-gu’s Love is based on the eponymous webtoon, and stars Choi Woo-shik (Fated to Love You) as awkward Ho-gu and UEE as his love interest. The show begins February 9. [My Daily]
  • The web drama Space Between: Sun-showers will launch soon on Naver tvcast, and it stars Ha Yeon-soo (Legendary Witch) and Yeon Je-wook (God’s Gift—14 Days) in a sweet and warm story. It’s based on the popular webtoon Space Between, and Ha Yeon-soo even sings a song for the OST. [Daily Economy]

He will have a concert with ZE:A in February 2015. That is why maybe he will take a break for awhile. The other reason is MAYBE ZE:A will have a comeback in 2015. So, he will focus there. Because he missed ZE:A's promotion comeback in 2014 for Triangle and followed by Misaeng.

He is a wise man. In ZE:A, he is called grandpa Siwan lol. Because he is sooo wise in giving advice. Of course, he will choose his next role wisely.

though there's definitely more than 1 grandpa in ZE:A and Siwan isn't just grandpa for wisdom but more for his awkward grandpa-ish dance moves n some other characteristics (sorry for ruining ur self-appointed fashionista image,Siwan)

lol

but if you watched Breath showcase, you will realize how wise he is. One of ZE:A's fans asked if he ever thought about suicide.

Hyungshikkie responded, "luckily grandpa Siwan will answer your question."

or you can watch Hello Counselor in which he is a guest along with Junyoungie, Kwang Hee, and Dongjunie. His advice is pretty good there but....Junyoungie is wiser than him. That is why, he is the leader.

Nice to meet you. I am happy to meet someone who knows ZE:A here.

He is also the one who advice Kwang hee to focus on variety show. One time, Kwang Hee said that he was tired. He responded," You have to withstand it Kwang Hee yah. It is good to be busy."

But...of course I have found that Junyoungie is wiser than him. He is the leader. again, nice to meet you here. I am just happy to meet persons who know ZE:A.

I hope the cast's next projects are good, and that they all return for Misaeng 2, whenever it happens (and please let that be good too!)

I like Ha Yeon-soo, glad to see her getting more work - she's got a quirky screen presence that really sets her apart from a lot of actresses.

And I've really tried to like Han Joo-wan in Wang Family/Joseon Gunman, but he is so.....bland. Really weirdly bland too, like he gives all the correct melty looks and is good-looking, but just leaves me indifferent. (the only reason I could even tolerate him in WF was because of Lee Yoon-ji).

I watched Misaeng up till episode 6. I don't want to enter Misaeng recap because I want to avoid spoiler. Just want to say, More than Im SHi Wan, I love Bu Yo Han's potrayal as Suk Yool... such a nuance performance. Like episode 4, when he showed his vulnerability That I feel nervous along with him. I hope he gets another awsome project.

Byun Yo-han is the biggest dark horse to come out of Misaeng - so talented, and such a cutie! I want to see him get lots more project offers too.

I watched the special and apparently 300 actors auditioned for SY's role. SY was definitely one of the funest characters in recent times in a kdrama.

That said, Siwan did an awesome job consistently... Viz obvious especially in the latter half of the drama. Very happy with the cast's new found fame.

Looking forward to Im Shi-wan's next role!!! <3 Also, I hope Park Jung-min gets better; significant damage to his spine is terrible and I wonder how it happened?

Also liked Han Joo-wan in Joseon Gunman (dont know why but I was addicted to that drama; probably Lee Jun-ki) but 50 episodes...

Wait, the Misaeng team is visiting my country, when? and where exactly? I'm guessing Cebu. Does anyone know, I couldn't find the exact place while searching.

Cebu ofcourse..We have many photos of him in Cebu, Lol. We here refer to ZE:A's.

I think it was in 24 December till 27. He spent his chrismast there. Eventhough, we, ZE:A's, want him to spend the chrismast with other ZE:A's members but...he was with his soulmate, Lee Sung Min in Cebu.

Yeah...Siwan....Go! I am waiting for a fancam for his concert in Japan, 12 and 14 February 2014. I hope he will crossdressing again as he did in Osaka concert in 2013. It will be funny. You will forget that he was Siwan who starred in Misaeng in you watched him in osaka concert 2013.

His drama? Yup, I am waiting for it too but after he finish his concert in Japan, I hope. So, he can focus on the concert. I miss him in ZE:A. ZE:A without him is not ZE:A like ZE:A without other members. ZE:A will be a 9 group forever eventhough Siwan will be busy in acting and CF.

Finally..one ZE:A's I meet here. Thanks God. I love Junyoung so much and he has opened his twitter: ZEA_leader, his instagram @ZEAfter and Weibo @ZEA Leader.

He has been DJing tour. He already came back from Beijing and Tianjin for his DJing. If you can read Mandarin, please stalk lekoxiong weibo. I think he mentioned about ZE:A C there. Junyoung also wrote 2015 ZEA C coming soon in his Weibo. I hope there will be sub unit of ZE:A and called ZE:A C and Junyoung will be in the sub unit.

I need to confirm the info that I got is right but I cant read Chinese or Mandarin.

It is confirmed there will be ZE:A concert in JApan with OT9. Maybe it will be the time for Junyoung to comeback in ZE:A.

if You are in Japan, you can attend his concert and share your thoughts here after seeing him as a singer.

If you want to watch him sing a No No No by Apink or you want to watch him in women's clothes, just go to youtube and search: ZE:A, osaka concert 2013. I am sure you will be loling so much. he was the same Siwan who starred in Misaeng. lol.

He is multitalented. All ZE:A's members are multitalented but they are underrated. They can act (Siwan, Hyungshiikie, Heechulie),
compose songs (all of them: kevin, siwan, Junyoung, taeheon, heechul, min woo, hyungshik, dongjun excluded Kwang Hee because I dont find his song he composed yet),

dj (Moon Junyoung aka Moon Leader) but I saw in empire return Siwan also learnt about Djing

Variety show (Dongjun, Kwang Hee, Hyungshik)

Violinist (Siwan..if you want to watch SIwan play violin, search on youtube Ghost of the Wind, live. He played violin there.

Host (Moon Junyoung, Kwang Hee)

and many more.

You must be ZE:A's. That is why in the comment section I wrote Siwan. lol.

I think I want the writer to write ZE:A's Siwan not Im Shi Wan. lol

But, it is ok. Lets start from us who write his name correctly.
