Jang Dong-gun returns to television

Well I never thought I’d see the day. A-lister Jang Dong-gun (Warrior’s Way, Good Morning President), who starred in all my crack dramas of yesteryear, is reportedly coming back to the small screen, for the first time in twelve years. Can it be true? I feel like I’m in a time warp. I wonder if seeing him on tv will make me feel like a teenager again. Wait… I hope that’s not the side effect I’m going to incur. Jang has signed on to take the lead in A Gentleman’s Dignity, the new drama from Secret Garden writer Kim Eun-sook, scheduled for a spring broadcast. You’d pretty much guess that she titled the drama after Jang, who is a gentleman’s dignity personified.

The drama is a 20-episode weekend miniseries described as a male version of Sex and the City, about the ins and outs of a group of 40-something bachelors. Sexy ajusshi bromance? Yes please. Starring alongside Jang will be Kim Min-jong (Athena), another member of the 90s drama leading man club, and funnyman Kim Suro (Mr. Idol, Romantic Heaven). With Jang Dong-gun and Kim Min-jong in one drama, you’re pretty much halfway to completing my dream drama cast (basically if you added Lee Jung-jae and Sohn Ji-chang my inner teenager would spontaneously combust).

What the drama doesn’t have yet is a leading lady, since top contender Lee Na-young dropped out of the running. I’m actually glad since I found the potential pairing a little off. I can’t wait to see who they cast for the lead and opposite Kim Min-jong as well. I don’t think I’ve ever been excited about a cast of ajusshis before, but hey, when you age like Jang Dong-gun, you don’t really get called ajusshi, at least not without “hot” in front of it.

A Gentleman’s Dignity will air on weekends and premieres in May on SBS.

Kim Su Ah and Choi Ji Woo are too old for the woman lead. It is best to get someone younger. Choi Jung Won is the right candidate. She will create the sparks and light up the entire drama.

Not a surprise that JDG is coming back on tv and the easy route at that, with a weekend drama. His movie My Way was one of the worst bombs in korean movie history, so he must be pretty desperate right now.

@Bd, if you don't see JDG as good looking, then what would you call a non looking guy or girl like you? An ape? Get a life! Don't bash his good looks. Anyway you're just minute of fraction who don't recognize his magnificent features compared to his millions of fans who adore him!
