Nice Guy’s first script read

For those of you chomping at the bit for a new Song Joong-ki drama, here he is, front and center as the nice-is-the-new-mean hero in his new melodrama Nice Guy, the full title of which has been announced as: There’s No Such Thing As Nice Guys (a rough translation, because it’s way too cumbersome to call a drama Nice Guys Don’t Exist Anywhere In the World). It’s a mouthful either way, so everyone’s still just calling it Nice Guy.

The production held its first script read on July 5th, with leads Moon Chae-won and Park Shi-yeon playing his two love interests. I can’t wait to see Song Joong-ki play an asshole. He’s someone who can play that duality, despite seeming like he’s made of puppies and rainbows.

Nice Guy is the next project penned by writer Lee Kyung-hee of Will It Snow for Christmas, I’m Sorry I Love You and A Love to Kill. It stars Song Joong-ki as a man who gets brutally betrayed by Park Shi-yeon, and so decides to seek revenge. Because moving on is so passé. He comes across an amnesiac, Moon Chae-won, and decides to use her for his revenge scheme. It all sounds bad on paper, but we can expect some conflicted, layered characters and hopefully some pretty dark psychological stuff, unless they wimp out and make the nice guy nice, which would negate the title and make me sad.

Lee Kwang-soo will be joining his buddy Song Joong-ki as his best friend, a chaebol who constantly lets people take advantage of him, so I’m guessing Song Joong-ki will be using him to some degree as well. It’s just nice to see these two in a drama together, since they’re good friends in real life. Lee Yoo-bi (Vampire Idol) plays Song Joong-ki’s little sister, described as a girl who’s stupid for her oppa, as in loves him dearly and knows nothing else. She’ll eventually have a loveline with Lee Kwang-soo’s character.

Nice Guy follows Gakistal on Wednesday-Thursday, and with the extension, it’ll now get some extra lead time to prep and get more episodes in the can. It premieres September 5 on KBS.

"He’s someone who can play that duality, despite seeming like he’s made of puppies and rainbows."

He will always be made of puppies and rainbows (awesome description, by the way!) and refreshing flowery goodness in my eyes.

I'm looking forward to seeing him as the leading man, although I'm not much of a go-getter for melodrama. NONETHELESS, I shall dive into this one for our lovely flower boy. It was only a couple months ago that I declared that I can't wait to see Song Joong Ki as the main male lead in a rom-com drama. Well, I guess I get half of that wish. But a Moon Chae Won pairing with him WILL make up for my non-affinity towards melodramas.

Gonna watch Penny Pinching Romance, but I've read that that one gets a bit edgy too and Joong Ki doesn't exactly play a nice guy in that movie either.

Thanks for the news update!

penny pinch is on netflix! i liked it better than chilling romance - hugely disappointed with that one. i love lee min ki but he is getting typecast and needs to try new things.

aw shucks, too much attractiveness in one single picture! i almost wouldn't care about the plot because just seeing this much pretty is enough for me, but knowing how talented each of these people are, i still hope it turns out good because otherwise it would be such a waste!

I already love this cast, i actually haven't watched many melos before so i'm hoping that this drama will make me more open towards the genre - since i'm not missing 'joong-ki as lead character' for the world! *rubs hands together in anticipation* :D

Thank you Girlfriday for the bit of Nice Guy.

I like Song Joong-ki and Park Shi-yeon.
I enjoyed Will it Snow for Christmas?
So... I'm definitely going to watch this drama. I guess I'm in need for melodrama after endless com-roms/drama-romance.

..hopefully some pretty dark psychological stuff..

I second that. But is it possible to be as warm as Thank You?
Uhm.... dark and warm? Sounds weird. Not possible I guess.

Woot! I'm pumped for this, especially since we will finally get to see our "puppies and rainbows" Song baby as a bad-boy schemer~~ Awwww man! His acting seems to have a lot of depth, without coming across as excessive passionate acting. I just love how well he embodies his characters! Ah~

I can't wait for stills from the set, because after seeing stills from Wolf Boy, I officially can't picture Song as anything but an adorable lost puppy! ^-^

My head literally went WEEEHH!! Haha.

I would love to love this series. If this is going to be a helluva melodrama I wish that this will have a very interesting plot (and characters - well rounded, complex characters) and won't be an in-your-face tearjerker type, too trying to make people cry. That would be awful and corny.

As much as I want to raise my expectation because I love MCW, LKS, and SJK, I haven't really liked any of the series written by LKH.

O well...I hope this turns out well.

I need some doze of electric jolts coz I'm not feeling Big that much. Mehhh.

Same here. If it weren't for the great leading cast in Big, I don't know if I would've stuck with it this far. Hoping my dream SJK-MCW-PSY collab doesn't disappoint. I feel listless without a drama to get passionate about.

Yeah. I don't even bother watching the Big episodes anymore and reading recaps is already enough for me.

I hope Nice Guy won't waste such a promising cast and give them a lame production.

Both female leads look so noona-ish next to Song Joong Ko. Can't blame them he just look too babyfaced. He better grow a beard, sideburns, wrinkles or something.

personnally I love the title. Idk why ppl don't like it.
I think it charms me already. A drama called "Nice Guy" when we know this guy isn't nice? Irony, isn't it? Which makes me expect it even more.
It changes from Bad Guy, used in every single drama/song/movie.

I really want to watch this, the cast are awesome (joong ki, chae won, gwang soo? I couldn't ask for more)
...but with the writer track records, a love to kill and will it snow for christmas ending are not my cup of tea. Well, it's not like a happy ending fitted for those kind of drama though. That's why I don't know what to hope from this drama. Don't really want to see joong ki die or left broken heart in the end :p
(btw, why all of the writer's drama title are that long?)

Ye gads, don't even like these types of dramas, but it's a full kill for me with the leads. Total K.O. If they threw Kang Ji Hwan in there and had an OST by MBlaq, I'd never watch another drama. :)

I laughed at the asshole remark. Hope he has fun being a douche. I mean playing the same guys over and over must be boring for any actor. I think it would be nice to play a huge tool. Go for gold SJK!

The main cast absolutely great..i really excited..SJK and MCW pair really suit for tearsjerking drama..looking at revenge past drama from LKH..i also expect NG will have a sad ending!! LKH really really good to expand their character and conflic before make the ending smoothly become heartbreaking!! She's the best melo-writer!..all of actress in Korea.,for me MCW is the best in crying and emotion acting skill..Her immerse in emotion was Masterful.....there is no doubt! between SJK and MCW,i think SJK will die in the end and MCW will be LKH secret weapon to break viewers heart..i believe Nice Guy will be awesome and make a high rating..daebak drama this year!
