Go Hyun-jung courted for new Noh Hee-kyung drama on tvN

Casting is afoot for the new drama from acclaimed writer Noh Hee-kyung (It’s Okay It’s Love, That Winter, the Wind Blows, and Padam Padam, among others). The news that she was headed to cable network tvN for her next project made waves, and now Go Hyun-jung (Queen’s Classroom) has been offered the headlining role. That’s a power team-up if I’ve ever seen one.

The new drama still has no title and there’s not much information about the role that Go Hyun-jung is considering. All that’s been announced so far is that it’s a drama about the elderly. Longtime drama partner PD Kim Kyu-tae (of It’s Okay It’s Love, That Winter, the Wind Blows, and Padam Padam) won’t be directing this time, though his production company will be producing. PD Hong Jong-chan of the tvN murder mystery romance My Secret Hotel (and assistant director on Padam Padam and Doctor Stranger) will be at the helm instead.

Go Hyun-jung was actually courted for the tvN rom-com Twenty Again but ended up passing on it (and in retrospect I’m happy about that because Choi Ji-woo is just too damn perfect in the role). So it’s not that big a surprise that she’s headed to cable as well, though these days it’s hardly a shocker when tvN lures big names like Kim Hye-soo.

This seems like the right project to bring Go Hyun-jung back to television, because no matter what the drama is about, she’ll be given a meaty role that lets her stretch her dramatic chops. It’s looking like one star-studded year for tvN.

Noh Hee-kyung’s next drama is being planned for a broadcast sometime in 2016.

Literally lost my balance when I saw this on my feed. This goddess will surely act the hell out if she signs in and officially joins the ranks of those shifting to cable dramas. Oh please be good to us, dramaland, and let Go Hyun Jung pick a great script to come back to~

I am so glad she did not take the role in Twenty Again. I did not like that drama at all, and I usually love anything with Choi Ji-Woo, but not that one...

At this rate TvN will be able to court Jun Ji Hyun, Kim Soo Hyun and other A-listers.

same here :/
TvN introduced fresh faces to us .. people who were stuck at minor / second lead roles
I hope that the channel will give the chance to other underrated actors to shine in the future :/

@Juno, agreed. Hehe. I think it's great that cable's getting more recognition which it deserves. But it's sad that we're getting more already-popular stars headlining(Good for cable and I'm happy for them). Just that I loved how they help unknown and underrated actors breakout(like Im Si Wan). But I hope GHJ accepts. Haha.

That's true. I think Yoo In Na and Ji Hyun Woo got more recognition after Queen In-Hyun's Man as well. I guess the top actors like the idea of being able to do and show more outside the boundaries of the Big 3 broadcasting companies.

But I also like the kind of re-vival tvn shows give some actors, so hmm. And it doesn't mean, the unknowns or underrated still can't break out. Misaeng was only last year and we got Byun Yo Han out of it. As long as they are somewhere in the cast of a good show, haha.

It's Noh Hee Kyung so I was already interested. I haven't seen much from Go Hyun Jung but I think that's better for me as well. a fresh-ish face?? :D

Looking forward to seeing what this show is all about.

At this point I really don't care about the script or the male lead anymore, just wanna see her in a drama. Hope she will take it.
