Yeo Jin-gu and Kim So-hyun potentially together again

Yeo Jin-gu in a new drama where he plays the main character? Rejoice! And here I thought we’d have to wait years and years for this budding superstar to headline a drama, held back by his youth if not by his magnetic screen presence and oodles of charisma.

The new drama is called Could We Love?, and reports state that Yeo Jin-gu is “favorably considering” it. What’s even funnier/odder/potentially better(?) is that if he takes it, his potential leading lady is none other than Kim So-hyun. I know, it sounds like something straight out of fanfic-fueled fantasies, right? Can you believe this’ll be their third time romancing each other and he’s still only fifteen? (To make you feel even older, she’s only thirteen, though she’s just a few months shy of her fourteenth birthday.)

It’s both great (since they’re adorable together) and perplexing (since surely, surely there are more than two viable actors in dramaland to pick from, without throwing the same pairs together all the time?). My first thought was to wonder whether their Moon/Sun co-star Kim Yoo-jung was too busy — the least the ladies could do is trade off starring with him, right? Although hilariously, that would make a third time for the Jin-gu & Yoo-jung pairing too (they were adorable little tykes together in 2008’s Iljimae), so maybe it all evens out.

Casting and chemistry aside, my favorite part of the news is that this drama, which is being developed by SBS as a Wednesday-Thursday show, is NOT just throwing them together for a couple episodes as the child actors for an adult romance. Nope, it’s a high school romance, where they’ll be the main characters the whole way through. Awwww. There have been a few shows centering around younger stars, but they haven’t typically been the big dramas — usually they’re smaller cable shows or Drama Specials or low-budget non-prime-time productions.

The character Yeo Jin-gu would play is a rebellious teenage delinquent, which should be a great change of pace for him (after playing wise young princes or warm-hearted nice guys). Kim So-hyun’s potential role would be the girl with a one-sided crush on our hero. Maybe this time they can make it work in a simple sweet story devoid of murders, amnesia, rape, and bigamy. Is that too much to ask for, dramaland?

Could We Love? is another collaboration between the PD and writer of Dr. Champ and Scent of a Woman, which means it’s bound to look gorgeous with that amazing hi-def camera. It’s set to air following the new Wednesday-Thursday drama All About My Romance, for a June premiere.

Dream cast time!

High school drama needs a LOT of high school friends so this drama needs to cast:

Park Gun Tae
Lee Min Ho '93 (Ha! Another MoonSun alum)
Eun Ji Won
Han Groo
Nam Ji Hyun

Kim Yoo Jung is good but she looks junior high so maybe next time, girl :P

+ Spice things up with some idol faces (with chops) like L (ok, I just love his pretty face, shallow me!), Hyoyoung (from School 2013), Kang Minhyuk and we're set to go!

Your turn~

I totally agree even when he was 12 back in Ja Myung Go with the young Jin Ji Hee. Yeo Jin Goo was just so freaking natural with expressing different kind of emotions and he kept perfecting it with every projects he's been given.
Oh gosh Nam Ji-hyun is my favorite teen actress. That would be one hell of a perfect pair on the big screen.

Yeo Jin-gu is simply a "natural" - gave an eye-opening appearance in his very FIRST role in the film "Sad Movie" and he was something like 6-7 years old.

He needs to work with Seo Shin-ae, another child actor who is a "natural" (she gave an awesome performance in the film "Quiz King/ Mr. Housewife" at a tender age as well).

It is weird as I was dreams about Yeo Jin-gu with Kim Yoo Jung and Kim So Hyun in a teen drama where they will be the main characters. So, Yeo Jin-Gu with Kim So Hyun is soo awesome. Now, we need Kim Yoo Jung in it. I will be totally happy. I also hope we get lots of teen actors in it too.. Umm.. Please no idols actors.

To make you feel even older, she’s only thirteen

I already felt it the day I read an interview of hers on here and realised she was so young that Yeo Jin-gu is an oppa to her!

I'm I the only one who is concerned about a three month shoot for these young actors? I've always heard that filming dramas in Korea is hard. I have seen plenty of photos and videos of actors falling asleep on the set due to sheer exhaustion. I hope the producers take this into consideration and consider their ages when planning the schedule.

Given that they're both under 16 (in Western years) I hope they're actually protected by child labour laws and don't end up becoming victims of the live shoot.

....i don't know about that. There's plenty of idols that are minors that still work crazy hours. I don't know how different it is with teen actors...

Also, I have no problem with these two kids working together a lot, since one of the laws of grown-up dramaland is Thou Shalt Never Work With The Same Co-Star Twice (no matter how good you are together).

Either girl would make for a lovely pairing for him... and I think that Yeo Jin Goo is quite dashing (on his way to noona-killer-dom)

I don't know what some of you guys are saying but Kim Yoo Jung is an amazing actress regardless her age. I think she can pull it off playing a teenager--for one, because she is one (DERP!). Plus her chemistry with Yeo Jin Gu is off the charts. Much MUCH more than with Kim So Hyun!

Aw, this sounds promising!! The pairing is kinda tired coz of the overexposure, but the context of a full length high school drama makes it feel interesting.

Where're the other young actors & actresses tho? We need some balance in here!

No~ it's not in Korean age- he's 15, and Kim So Hyun is turning 14 in Western age ^^

This is seriously a dream come true! I was just talking about it in my OTP post about having a show where they're actually the main characters, and here it is coming true! Please let this happen.

For me Jin Goo is better with Yoo Jung. With Yoo Jung, he seems like not acting but being himself. With So Hyun, in every scenes looks forced.

Oh my God, it's like a dream come true! Ever since I saw this little play-skit video clip with Yeo Jin Gu, Kim Yoo Jung and Kim So Hyun for one of the stations' award ceremonies: http://www.avirtualvoyage.net/2013/01/caught-in-an-epic-love-triangle-of-2012-yeo-jin-goo.html
I said that it would be awesome if they get to be in a series as the main characters and not just the childhood counterparts of the main characters.

THIS would be something I would NOT miss out on if it happens. While it's just 2/3 of the trio being courted for this series, I think my heart would take things easier since I really don't like triangles all too much, and so adding Kim Yoo Jung to the cast would make it harder for me to decide my desired OTP.

Sigh... so young and so much star power. I'm sure even if series based on younger kids aren't too popular, the star power and the skills of these two together would bring in a pretty good audience.

Omg, I'm so shipping this drama already. Though I'm a bigger fan of the YJG x KYJ combination, as they were a couple in the two dramas I've seen them in (TMTETS and Iljimae) and I haven't seen Missing you in which he's a coupled up with KSH, but I do like KSH so I'm not really against it either. (btw Javabeans, the couple romancing each other twice should be YJG x KYJ, YJG x KSH would be once.)

I've been waiting for a drama with this kind of main couple ever since TMTETS, so I'm really really looking forward to this~! <33
