Answer to 1997 starts filming, adds to cast

Has the forever choding graduated to high school? Our first still from the set of upcoming tvN sitcom Answer to 1997 shows Eun Ji-won (1 Night 2 Days) back to his 90s self, dressed in a high school uniform and pouting for the camera. He tweeted the picture from the set, calling himself Eun Goding, turning his own choding grade-school persona into a high-schooler one. Why so cute? And are you really going to be playing a high schooler on this show?

The sitcom will be about 90s idols and the k-pop industry of yore (awww yeah), which means it will be full of references to the days when Eun Ji-won was an idol himself. It’s possible I am the only person excited about a sitcom about 90s k-pop. I can’t be the ONLY ONE. Right? Someone else out there knows all the words to a RooRa song, despite all attempts to scrub it from memory, right?

Directing is PD Shin Won-ho of Happy Sunday’s Qualifications of Men, and writer Lee Woo-jung of 1 Night 2 Days. Well that explains the Eun Ji-won love. (Not that everyone shouldn’t love Eun Ji-won.) The cast includes Seo In-guk, Jung Eun-ji, Hoya, and Sung Dong-il.

The show has also added Lee Shi-un to the cast (pictured below), whom you’ll likely recognize as a supporting actor from lots of dramas. He was most recently in The King 2 Hearts and his biggest role to date was probably in Friend, Our Legend. He’ll be playing a rich kid from Busan called OG Rapper. Pffffft. I think I’m gonna luff this show. Please be funny. Please be funny.

Answer to 1997 premieres sometime in June on tvN.

i love eun choding!!! Missed him on 2days1night. Now i can get my Eunchoding fix!
Seriously he's the perfect guy to play a high-scholar. For a guy his age, he doesn't look like he aged that much as compared to other idols from the 90s

Also, I feel like i should share with the dramabeans commuity- I mentioned a while ago that I will be in Korea for six months and I'm here, have been since February.. and I saw EUN JI WON & CLOVER live!!!!!
And he is as humble as I thought he would be- his behaviour towards his fans was so nice!!! My friend's video: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=yZEWfJUCcyo

@Ani @Arhazivory
Thanks! I didn't get many souvenirs from where I saw him since it was a nightclub appearance lol but I have managed to find eun ji won 1n2d socks, along with Lee Seung Gi, Kang Ho Dong, and Lee Se Geun... I found Uhm Taewoong ones but he looked really ugly on them for some reason so I didn't buy them..

lol @ Taewoong's socks.

Agreed... tvN is really batting out of the field ever since... flower boy ramyun shop? Even their mediocre-ish shows are much better than many other things I've seen. Definitely watching this if it's available.

I'm just excited for some more Eun Ji-won exposure. *please be funny* *please get subbed* *please be awesome*

I think any thing about 90s Pop whether kpop or otherwise is awesome since I remember 90s pop in South Pacific vividly. XD

Haha!! I keep seeing original 1N2D production crew members in tvN projects!!! PD Lee Myung Han and maknae writer Kim Dae Joo also helmed a tvN show, The Romantic. And PD Shin Won Ho was also a 1N2D producer!! Man, I really miss the old 1N2D crew TT_TT

And as I was born in the 90s, I can't say I really know much 90s kpop, besides the big 5: finkl, ses, hot, god, sechskies, etc. I only know Roo'ra because of Go Young Wook...and can I just say that he's an absolute sleazeball pedo??!! I disliked him ever since he practically molested Sungjong and inappropriately hit on all sorts of young female idols. I was not surprised at all by his scandal. Urgghhh.... I honestly don't want to see him back on TV...

Would someone PLEASE explain 'choding' to me? Is it a noun, a verb, an adjective, a condition? I first came across this description watching WGM with CN Blue's Yong-hwa who was described as this - 'a choding guy from Busan'.

As a non-Korean, it's a confusing term.

It's a noun. It just means grade-schooler. And goding is high-schooler.

Thanks. So, it basically it's any guy over 18 acting like he's 12? That would make sense...
