Noh Min-woo and Hwang Jung-eum un-confirm Full House 2
javabeans: Okay, the news is that this casting for Full House 2 has been deferred, not outright cancelled. But with Noh Min-woo signing onto a different series and Hwang Jung-eum enjoying such a rise in popularity, I don’t know if they’ll stick around indefinitely for a drama that’s been “in the works” for basically seven years.
girlfriday: I knew it was a fat chance in hell that drama would get its act together.
javabeans: I was actually more surprised at the idea that it would go through as planned. Plus, word is that Noh and Hwang had a “big difference of opinion” with producers regarding the characters and the show.
girlfriday: Oh, that’s not a good sign, from the get-go.
javabeans: Or maybe the vampire love just seduced Noh Min-woo away. It can be pretty persuasive, I hear.
girlfriday: Dude, it’s a better drama. At least I think so.
javabeans: …having seen neither, you mean?
girlfriday: Yes, exactly. Don’t you think he was born to play a vampire?
javabeans: Well, yes. Clearly.
girlfriday: I honestly didn’t even like him until he did Rock, Rock, Rock. I used to think he was…
javabeans: A talentless pretty boy with a bad haircut? He was SO STIFF as Gumiho Hunter.
girlfriday: He was downright constipated.
javabeans: This just goes to show how important good casting is. It’s like Park Shi-yeon in Coffee House for me.
girlfriday: I look forward to many many episodes of him rockin’ out, which is clearly his forte. Not that I don’t think he could branch out. I didn’t catch Midas (it bored the crap out of me), but it’s not a stretch for him to play the pretty playboy. What concerns me about this drama is not so much the cast, but the been-there-done-that-ness of the story.
javabeans: If it’s too much like Full House, then we’ll be bored to tears. If it’s not at all like Full House…then what’s the point?
girlfriday: Right? So then why even bother calling it Refill House, if it’s just going to be like any other drama that has totally new characters with a Full-House-esque plot?
javabeans: Ugh, I just had a thought: Totally new cast, new story, same damn house. That’s what they’re gonna do, aren’t they?
girlfriday: Pwahaha. That hadn’t even occurred to me. Oh sigh.
javabeans: How’re you gonna cheat the heroine out of her family home this time, drama? Let me guess: She has these friends…
girlfriday: Or maybe this one’ll have a degenerate father or a really bad cousin who gambles away the house
javabeans: An irresponsible fourth cousin twice removed?
girlfriday: Yes, who HAPPENS to come upon her house deed, just lying about, as deeds are wont to do.
javabeans: He could steal her seal, all 49 Days-like.
girlfriday: And then BAM! French maid outfit. No, wait… why’s she gotta be the maid? How ‘bout this time, it’s reversed, and the hero loses the house and ends up as the houseboy!
javabeans: And she’s the big movie star? Wait, they did that in Star’s Lover. But this time it won’t be a tearjerker.
girlfriday: What, you’re asking a drama that calls itself Full House 2 to be original?
