Go Hyun-jung offered ajumma campus romance for tvN

Ooh, Go Hyun-jung (Queen’s Classroom, Queen Seon-deok) may be heading to cable for her next drama, and what a get that would be for tvN. The station has scored their share of stars already, but Go Hyun-jung pushes them into real heavyweight territory.

The drama is Our Heaven, the series from the Two Weeks and 49 Days writer about a 38-year-old ajumma who enrolls in university and gets a chance to reset her life. She’ll clash with the twentysomethings surrounding her as she finds both her dream and love.

There’s no word on whether her love will be one of those twentysomethings, though I suppose that would be the fun of the setup. (And I’m pretty sure this’ll be the fun version, rather than, say, the melodramatic angsty version of something like Secret Love AffairOur Heaven is described as a cheerful and cheeky campus romance.)

At 44, Go Hyun-jung is a bit older than the character, though she’s always been praised for her youthful looks, and I don’t think it’s too hard to see her playing the role. How they cast her romantic co-star will really be the deciding factor; I found Witch’s Romance surprisingly winsome, for instance, thanks to the crackling chemistry between Park Seo-joon (then 26) and Uhm Jung-hwa (who was 45). And who could forget how heartwarming and sweet she was with Chun Jung-myung in the quintessential noona romance What’s Up Fox?

Writing the drama is So Hyun-kyung, who on top of Two Weeks and 49 Days also wrote the weekend hit My Daughter Seo-young, rom-com Prosecutor Princess, and Cinderella story Brilliant Legacy. Directing will be Kim Hyung-shik of Sign and Suspicious Housekeeper. Go Hyun-jung is only considering right now, having received the synopsis and the offer. According to her management, the script hasn’t come out yet, which is part of the reason she’s still thinking it over.

Our Heaven will follow Oh My Ghostess as a Friday-Saturday drama beginning in August.

Me too. I feel what happened to her marriage contributed to the slow down of her career. As some her afraid to cast her in projects, for fear of the powers that be. Sad though, she is one of the gems of the SK entertainment industry.

True.

I always get teary-eyed whenever I remember all that she's been through. Her life is more than a drama itself.

It's good that she's strong enough to overcome those trials and I really hope that someday will come that she'll be reunited with her kids.

She's always said that she tends to accept projects just so that her kids can see her on television. I can totally feel that she really miss them. I'm sorry but I really hate her powerful in-laws!

I can't believe Korea has such Neanderthal laws that ban a mother from seeing her children, all because of power. I hope the ex-husband's business goes down the toilet.

Damn, tvN is snatching up so many big-names lately. First Park Boyoung and now they're aiming for Go Hyunjung. If Go Hyunjung agrees then she'd be their biggest by far.

I hope she takes it up because I want to watch her in another comedy/romcom. It will be awesome if she reunites with Chun Jung-myung! What's Up Fox is one of the best noona romances EVER.

a little weird to imagine a romcom from this team when Two Weeks and Housekeeper were both quite ...well, not gloomy, but...different. but then again...

more than a "mistaken for a 20 year old / looking young for her age" kind of premise I would like the younger students just appreciate her for who she is. her actual age her actual self, true equality.

I think it is more ocmmon that people who are reaching 40 start having stereotypes of young folks - they dont know shit, they haven´t lived, they´re immature etc. maybe it wouldnt hurt if she wasnt perfect in that department

The writer also wrote 49 Days and Prosecutor Princess, which in my book, are romcoms. Regardless, I really like the writer so hoping this drama will do well!

She bores me a lot. When I try to watch a drama and she happens to be in it, I end up quitting. Her acting is so dry. And I am interested in the plot so I hope she doesnt take it.

Yes!!!! I hope she also falls for a professor. I'm not a big fan of love stories with big age gaps. :-/ Regardless, I am sure she can pull it off. I still cannot get over how amazing she was as MISHIL.

And if I may add, I want the professor to be YOO JI TAE.

Now imagine, Go Hyun Jung opposite Yoo Ji Tae.

Yes, exactly! ;)

If not in this drama, they need to happen in a drama/movie and SOON!!! lol

Agree. Don't actually care if she dates a professor or a janitor as long as she isn't cradle-robbing. And wouldn't be heartbroken if she manages to channel Mishil.

If she takes the role its a must watch drama for me. She is not topstar actress for only her looks but she is really good in many kind of roles. The writer is very good, one of the most versaitle to me too. I mean melodrama like My Daugther Sooyoung, Brillant Legacy who was very good of their kind to awesome thrillers like Two Weeks.

It would be good if TVN joins the big leagues with a real big star and not just young 20something actors who havent got their major networks lead yet.

If the twentysomething will be her love interest, I wonder which young actor will act as her opposite. Yoo Seung Ho would be perfect, he's been gone from dramaland for too long and it's time for him to make his drama comeback.
The premise sounds promising, I'm definitely looking forward to it!

Yoo Seung Ho would be more appropriate as her son than her romantic interest.

Wow tvN, that's damn impressive!

I like the writer and GHJ, but that premise is so not my thing, and so isn't yet another noona romance. If she falls for a professor close to her age, maybe I'll give it a go.

Tbh from the description "campus romance" it doesn't sound like her love interest will be a professor...

But if she falls for a professor, isnt it unethical?

Of course it is, lol. But she doesn't necessarily have to fall for a professor who lectures her classes. He can be someone she meets on campus and thinks of as a student or something.

Honestly I don't care what the profession is, I just want someone who's age is similar because we are swimming in Noona romances lately.

Go Hyun-Jung is always fantastic. Her turn as Misil in Queen Seon-deok was nothing short of pure awesomeness.

Here's to seeing her once again in dramaland, perhaps in this project! Sounds interesting.

This must encounter no delay. Just Go Hyun-jung in a hakgyo. Call. I love Go Hyun-jung since Spring Days. And when she surprised the whole Daehanminguk with the nerve trembling Mishil, and bag the Daesang that year-- as a villain who was killed post-midway the series. That is pure genius. No less than what the great Go Hyun-jung deserves. That said, TVN congratulations for sealing a Daesang awardee. I am excited for this, aint it the obvious.

Makes me wish that Kim Myung-min be paired with Go Hyun-jung in a classic romance. Dang, the acting of those two will just eat the screen alive. Now Kim Myung-min in a cable, is that too much to ask for? My mind says yes. My heart says why not. (And it says why did Kim Myung-min accept Flying Dragons huhuhu. Fret not, my wish will come true: Kim Myung-min in a classic romance; be it romcom, plain rom or dramarom)

Wow tvN is on the roll right now. First Park Bo Young then the famous webtoon CITT and GHJ. They are really stepping up their game but I'm still bitter when they cut their shows.

P.S. I agree it would be better if her love interest is a professor but then we'll see if she accepts this first tho.

Love her, but not the writer. Thought MDSY was boring and BL strictly for teen fans. She's approaching the age where she'll be offered menopausal M-I-L roles, since male actors her age get paired with younger actresses. Too bad.

They better not waste her talent here. She's been the highest paid Korean actress for a reason. Better be good script. Nonetheless, I'll watch anything that she's in.

When the premise got around, all I could think about was how dreamy it would be if Go Hyun Jung gets casted in the role. Imma cry hard if this all works out. Please do your magic, tvN~

Also, it'd be a plus if the show ends up pairing her with Ji Soo *swoons*
