Park Min-young courted to play rookie cop

So, now that Park Min-young is no longer doing Doctors Without Borders Because They Might Be Spies drama Doctor Stranger, she’s considering rookie cop drama You’re All Surrounded instead. It’s also a spring SBS drama (this one’s slated for the Wednesday-Thursday slot following Three Days) that’s potentially going to score Lee Seung-gi and maybe even Cha Seung-won, if early reports are true.

You’re All Surrounded is the newest project from the writer of Ojakkyo Brothers and the PD of Incarnation of Money and History of the Salaryman, about a foursome of rookie cops in their twenties who struggle with a lack of interest in their jobs, and their eventual path to becoming detectives. Lee Seung-gi is up for the hero role, a familiar-sounding troublemaker, while Park Min-young is being courted to play the earnest and dogged heroine. It’s probably not a stretch to say she’s better at the job than he is. And Cha Seung-won is considering a role as the short-fused team leader of the violent crime squad, which would be so awesome. Please say yes, Cha Seung-won.

Both shows sound quirky in their own ways, though I think this is a better move for Park Min-young because there were too many Dr. Jin associations with her considering a role as a doctor with a doppelgänger. I mean, that’s just way too specific a niche to be playing in two dramas back to back. I don’t always like her, but she’s considerably better when she gets to play tougher characters. I’m hoping this one is a comedy, though it isn’t clear from the plot descriptions, so we’ll have to wait to hear more.

You’re All Surrounded will follow Three Days in April.

I hope Lee Seung Gi and Cha Seung Won confirm this project...it would be so awesome!

As for Park Min young, I liked her in City Hunter and SKKS...so I'm okay if she signs on :)

I don't really think the female lead is doing to matter if they get Lee Seung Gi and Cha Seung Won. I'm more looking forward to bromance more than romance. I neither dislike her or like her, so it's fine with me. I'd pick this project over the other one too. No Empress Ki to fight with and not like what she just played. Though I guess it might be like City Hunter...

i agree with you on the female lead part, if they indeed manage to get lee seung gi and cha seung won, i think who plays the female lead won't matter, i like park min young but don't like her acting at all, she's mediocre at best, i wouldn't have minded if the director had chosen some rookie or up and coming actress to play the role...

Well, I mean this is obviously going to be a drama focusing on the males given the casting so far. Plus she's all earnest already so she's probably not even going to grow that much throughout the drama. It's not exactly a star turn for the actress cast. I can see her not particularly mattering that much.

It would actually be pretty interesting if she were as uninterested in her job as the rest of them though.

In general it's how kdramas work, especially those with much bigger male stars. But hey, maybe I'm wrong and she'll be super important to the plot. Probably not though.

I think this is the bigger project with bigger names, a writer that has some huge hits and a well-off PD (although I do prefer PD Jin Hyuk's work more). Also, the Dr. Jin association so its an obvious choice for PMY.

Can't say I'm too delighted, I would have preferred someone else since she's done something similar in CH. But on the bright side, I loved Nana way more than I ever cared for her SS character.

Is it bad if I say I want her to decline? I guess she wouldn't but I really wanted someone else. Like Park Shin-hye or Moon Chae-won or Kim Ji-won. Or even Jung So-min - Can't remember the last time I saw her - maybe just my short term memory though.

It`s not just kissing though. If PSH was some outstanding actress who has one week point , the kissing, i would be fine with that. But she is mediocre actress, who can`t kiss and has zero sexual chemistry with her costars. So i prefer even PMY over her.

Agree with you

0

She's not the best actress of her generation, but she has on occasion delivered a decent kiss scene (FBND, I don't count that vacuum cleaner kiss in Heirs) and at the very least she can get into character instead of just standing around in costume and saying her lines. And Korean network tv dramas are hardly full of passionate kissing these days.

The chemistry, too, it depends on her costars. She had great chemistry with Jang Geun-seok and Yoon Shi-yoon, but fell flat as a pancake with Lee Min-ho. (on the other hand, she did have some spark with Kim Woo-bin)

0

She has good chemistry with Seunggi though from what I've seen. She's comfortable around him. They were in a MV together and are friends. But I'm kind of sick of seeing her. Moon Chae Won is who I'd pick if I had the chance...

0

@lemondoodle - I would love to see him with Moon Chae-won, or his other costar from GFB, Lee Yubi - they had promising chemistry that was unfortunately scuttled by the laws of kdrama casting (i.e. First Lead Gets The Guy)

I'd like to see moon chae won + seung gi in a project together. They were absolutely adorbs when she guest appeared on strong heart

@pogo - I totally agree with you! Moon Chae Won and Lee Yubi. Kinda funny that though SGi had chemistry with his leads, he sometimes has better chemistry with his second leads!

0

looks like Heirs and PSH haters are here to stay throughout the 21st century!!! he he!! peace....

0

I don't think it's smart to dismiss someone in the name of 'they can't kiss'. That's beyond ridiculous. It's really sad that the cast of Heirs is laughed at just because they played high school students. Yea, they never looked the part, but their acting is not determined just by that.

Anyway, it's personal opinion, but for me (and I'm assuming a few would agree on this) Shin-hye is quite the talent. She can do both comedy and emotional scenes with equal believability. She also has awesome chemistry with whoever she's cast with, and is a LOT better than PMY, HHJ, and many other equally popular names out there. I wouldn't go as far as comparing her to Suzy though, cz that's just unfair. But, each to their own.

Spoken like someone who's not watched Flower Boy Next Door....

If anything PSH comes across as older than her years, which is why I wasn't into her in Heirs. And I'm with you on the point that Suzy is a blot on the acting landscape, I do not want a repeat of GFB non-chemistry+bad acting again!

0

Just because she is better than Suzy (who isn`t?) doesn`t necessarily means she is a good actress. From the young generation of actresses i prefer Park Bo Young,both Moons,Park Se Young,Kim So Eun,Lee Yubi,Lee Yeon Hee ,Go Ara etc over her.

I even liked some idol actresses more then her e.g Eunji and Yoona.

I understand lots of people here worship Park Shin Hye ,but only drama i really liked her in was FBND. I wish she can do more risky type of role in the future , i am sick of her playing same type of character over and over again.

Required fields are marked *

I love all the actresses you mentioned but Lee Yeon-hee and Go Ara have exactly one decenly-acted drama each to their credit - Miss Korea and AM1994. They were famously terrible at acting before that and I don't see why acting-wise, PSH is compared unfavourably to them based on their full careers - but they're catching up now, and I hope the trend continues.

FBND was my favourite performance from her yet but she's had the odd movie that was not the usual 'innocent' image, and frankly I think the image is her biggest weakness right now.

0

I whole heartedly agreee with you! someone who can at LEAST do a kiss scene without getting shocked & surprised with goggled eyes! I really dislike that!
In her interview,park shin hye has said that she got scared & very shocked when Lee MinHo kissed her in "the heirs"!!
I cannot believe this! after 10 years experience in this career,she CANNOT even pull off a kiss scene!!
AT LEAST Park Min Young doesn't leave the viewers with uneasy feelings after her kiss scenes & stinginess of skinship!! AT LEAST she does NOT FROWN when she is being kisses!!

Rookie cop and boss gives the romance too much focus since it's full of problematic issues. Don't see it or want to see it.

Though there will be a love triangle with the other rookie cop rival, her and SG's character I'm sure. For the boss... can we get some older adult romance for once??? Or let him be happily married. Or not interested would be nice to see.

It would be totally okay if there were no romance at all between anyone though.

A troublemaker who's shy around girls? Yeah but I am afraid Cha Seung-wo's daughter would still fancy him, because he is very cute of course. There's no writer out there who wouldn't go that way I am afraid.

I'm still trying to figure out if that was a joke or not, but either way, I'm laughing.

Seung-gi is so the lead in this one, although I wouldn't mind PMY to be CSW's love interest if they can cast someone better for SG's love line... Just a thought.

Best in the field? If you think he even comes within the top 10, that itself to me is a joke. Now amongst his generation, he's up up there but it's JGS (at his best) and YAI that gets the 'best' tag.
(And I'm not laughing)

He is not the best dear but I simply love him to bits, to the extent that everyone pales in comparison. What to do ? That's how biased I am with my LSG love.

Rookie cops could be wildly entertaining and heartwarming but let us not go down the 'Level 7 Civil Servant' path..
The "lack of interest" they have in their new job scares me considering they aren't necessarily jaded people who've been cops forever.
I do like the writer and the director (lurve seunggi/cha seung won combo) so i hope this is good.

Please SBS, it's been a while since you've let me down. Continue your winning streak!

Hmm I do like Park Min-Young enough, and I'm sure this pairing could be good because both of them generally have good chemistry with their costars, but its certainly not a couple that I hear about and instantly get excited for. That could be good though because if they do turn out to be a good couple, then I'll be getting a pleasant surprise just like in Prime Minister and I. That said, I do think I would rather another actress took the part. Lee Seung-Gi especially has had some really good pairings in the past and I'd love to get another good one from this drama because I'm particularly excited for it.

I've only seen Park Min-young in one drama, so I'm not super familiar with her. That being said, what I did see from her was not out-of-this-world memorable.

But based on what I do remember from her, I have a feeling playing a rookie cop, interacting with colleagues is going to be a better fit for her than if she had accepted the other role in Doctor Stranger.

seung gi's all the past leading ladies and the romance the chemistry have been legendary,and his career so from a teenager to now in music, variety, mc and acting ( considering his age and the fact he did all of these together) have been legendary. or legendary- errrr

that is up till gu family book and suzy. so it's understandable everyone is anxious for him to redeem himself and get back on track in acting department as well.

your all surrounded pd,writer and co male lead all sound great,and it's fair people to expect an upgrade in the actress department as well like in YCFS.

AND this drama is already more high profile . i hope the pd and the writers and all of them know what they are doing,

because of pmy and city hunter. she played the role before, pointing guns , bleeding to death on the floor with male lead nightmare scenes bla bla bla etc etc which will be in any cop drama romance.

well.what the hell. if there is someone better pd nim. like say a better actress with more star power who hasn't done a similar role, i w.a.n.t you to cast H.E.R!!!!!!!!!!

and btw you know shit is real. when fans are like "not her" or "it's her" to yoona in real life

I guess I'm the minority here who don't think LSG is all that. The only series I found him decent in was K2H. But he was still the weakest of the main cast.

This sounds a lot like K2H, just without HJW as leading lady and instead we have CSW playing second fiddle to two less talented people.

my ideas about Park Min-young's acting:
I have never been impressed by her acting,apart from her role in "City Hunter". I just liked her in this drama!
She cannot emote very well & she doesn't have the ability 2 impress viewers emotionally.Her acting is NOT natural at all! It will be good if the plot doesn't center around her,actually with Lee Seung-gi Cha Seung-won in the drama,WITHOU DOUBT,she won't possibly have a very special character.
she is pretty but unfortunately she isn't natural beauty & has had eye lid plastic surgery as you might have seen her "before surgery" image! she thinks that with having big eyes,she can portray her characters but this isn't right.
she ONLY just has some cute crossing eye expressions which R not ENOUGH for acting!

actresses like "Song Hye Kyo","Park Bo Young","Han Hyo Joo, are BOTH beautiful & talented! they have small eyes while they r natural beauty & don't have wrong facial expressions!they are able 2 impress the viewers!
By the way,Park Min young has won awards but NOT VERY special awards! she has NEVER won award for "Baeksang" awards & other top ones!

If you're talking about acting award then sorry to inform you but Baeksang is based on popularity. Sometimes winners are chosen through people's vote.
Regarding the issue of cosmetic or plastic surgery of actors: some do it to correct some deformities, some do it because they want to look younger or to look even more beautiful. I highly doubt they do it because they want to portray their characters well.

There's nothing wrong with Park Min Young - she's young & pretty and not too bad an actor. BUT... somehow she's not on my "like" list of female Korean actors. Maybe because her face is "too perfect", "too cute". Too common amongst all the faces that went under the knife.
