UEE considers Jaejoong’s fantasy rom-com Manhole

UEE (Night Light) recently turned down an offer to headline a weekend drama (My Golden Life) for KBS, but has now also received an offer to star in another KBS drama, Manhole, although she’s only reviewing the script at this stage.

Manhole is a timewarp drama being headlined by JYJ’s Jaejoong (Spy). It’ll be a comedy about an unemployed bum named Bong-pil who travels to the past through a random timeslip portal in order to stop a wedding that’s happening a week from the present. Jaejoong has confirmed that he will be playing Bong-pil, but details regarding UEE’s potential character have not been released. She’s come a long way since You’re Beautiful and has grown into a formidable actress, which gives me confidence in whatever role she ends up deciding.

The plot of Manhole is giving me strong Operation Proposal (starring Yoo Seung-ho) and Tomorrow With You vibes. Both were cute dramas, but they didn’t exploit all the possible opportunities for timeslip hilarity (not like, say, Splish Splash Love). So I’m excited to see how Manhole will approach the same concept from a more humorous angle.

Manhole is scheduled to air on KBS after Seven Day Queen ends in August.

SAME. I still would have checked out Golden Life because of UEE, but Park Shi-hoo is not ideal. Jae-joong on the other hand...I'd be so down to see her paired with him instead!

Yes, thank goodness she's not doing that Park Shi-hoo drama. I have a lot of faith in KBS recently, I've been enjoying a lot of their dramas so I hope this one will be good too.

If UEE is in it Ill definitely give it a go!
That said, I'd probably watch it anyway because of nostalgic affection for Jaejoong. He brings me right back to the height of my high school fangirl days...

Did you love her in High Society?! It's nice to see someone else who did in spite of the writer treating her character like crap.

When you have time, watch her in Marriage Contract. Lee Seo-Jin and Uee made a lovely couple. Some sort of sparkling magic was happening between those two.

The writer, Lee Jae-Gon, also wrote Special Affairs Team 10 and Ten 2. I haven't seen Ten 2.

I couldn't get in to Operation Proposal, I did enjoy Puropōzu Daisakusen though. I'll give this a look when it comes out.
