Daemul is back on with same stars

Buzz project Daemul (aka Big Fish) has secured its two leads — and they’re the same two leads it had signed before the project died due to myriad production problems.

Go Hyun-jung had made the decision to re-sign as lead a couple months ago, and now Kwon Sang-woo is about to finalize his contract with the production company, Lee Kim (Yigim) Productions.

This project has been through so many ups and downs that I remain half-disbelieving that it’ll actually make it to air, and the series has yet to be assigned a broadcast slot. Also note that this is now an MBC drama; it had been planned for broadcast on SBS in its previous incarnation. Still, with two big stars attached (again) — and with Go Hyun-jung leading MBC to ratings victory last year in Queen Seon-deok — it’ll probably push through this time. Or so we can hope.

For a quick refresher on plot: This manhwa adaptation features Go as Korea’s first female president, and Kwon as a male gigolo. Scandalous!

KSW seems perfect as a male gigolo for some reason.

Oh God. I usually try to be open minded, but no matter how many projects I watch of KSW I just can't start liking his acting. I can't even pinpoint what it is that I don't like.

Still, I can totally buy Go Hyun-jung as a first female President and I really want to see her so I'll probably watch Daemul; if it ever makes it to the screen, that is.

I was watching Queen Seonduk episode 50 and crying like crazy T_T (LOL) then I saw this news it was like I found Mishil again hehe. Plus she will be the president! This time she will be a ruler (sort of) I'm happy :P but I don't like KSW I hope it'll turn out good. His acting is really annoying I don't know why.

Maybe this will be the project where KSW revives himself. :) But seriously, if he doesn't nail this one, i don't know how many more disappointing projects an actor can have before one becomes a has-been or could-have-been. Good luck KSW and the rest of the cast & crew. Hope it comes to air.

Will this actually be the first Kwon Sang-woo project I'd like? Hmmm.....well either way I hope it makes it way to the screen.

I'm extremely pleased at this news. Finally, KSW is choosing a project that seems very well suited to him.

Best of luck.

Go Hyun-jung definitely has the persona of a president. She just commands attention!

Dang, why couldn't they have cast Chun Jung Myung instead of KSW? I like CJM better than KSW. CJM and GHJ had very good chemistry in "What's Up Fox?"

Finally... Go Hyun-jung gets to be a leader of a nation, which she failed to do in Queen SeonDuk.

i used to loooooove KSW - then he became just another ahjusshi to me.. but i still hv a soft spot for him.. so all the best to him..

@ 3 Nabi..

yeahhh, he already played a gigolo (albeit a high schooler) in the movie - Make It Big with Song Seung-hoon, that was way back in 2005 (????) .. maybe he can be a better gigolo in this one... LOL...

Such great news. I've been jonesing for more GHJ since QSD. Seriously cannot get enough of this woman's charisma. I'm a little apprehensive about her chemistry with KSW though. They don't feel like a fit.

@meh

I have to agree. Much as I adored KSW in STH, I think CMJ would work better with GHJ, and not just because of WUF. He's got that mischievous and endearing thing about him that KSW, no matter how much hotter he is, just doesn't have. GHJ would swallow him whole.

Hmmm....isn't that the same type of character KSW plays most of the time anyway? Why do I get the feeling we might be seeing same type of story line like City Hall?

double..hhhhmmmmmm......

Why do productions keep signing KSW? Don't they realize that a LOT of people really don't care for his acting? And now he's opposite one of the more powerful performers as of late ... Go Hyun Jung.

If his role is that of a gigolo, then yes, I agree that Chun Jung Myung would be an adorable choice. Guess we'll just have to wait and see how this one turns out. If it ever gets off the ground.
