Eric considers tvN mystery romance with Kim Ah-joong

I’d been thinking it was time for a new Eric drama — it’s already been a year and a half(!) since his last series, Discovery of Romance. We might see him back in dramaland as early as May, because he’s been offered the leading role in tvN’s new mistaken identity romance called Oh Hae-young Again (a pun on “It’s another misunderstanding”). If he signs on, he’ll star opposite Kim Ah-joong (Punch) in the drama about two women who share a name, and a man who can see into the future.

The new Monday-Tuesday series comes from the PD of Marriage Not Dating and the writer of I Live in Cheongdam-dong, and tells the story of three people who desperately want to be untangled from each other’s lives. Two women work at a large catering company, and one is a team leader while the other is an assistant manager. The rub is that they’re both named Oh Hae-young, which creates a whole host of problems for them.

Complicating matters is the leading man, who for some bizarre reason can see into the future. He gets mixed up with the two Oh Hae-youngs and their swapped fates, and the drama is about the two women trying to get away from each other, and the man’s attempt to get away from both women. Obviously things go awry and people fall in love.

It doesn’t make a whole lot of sense yet, but I trust this team to pull out a solid rom-com. I don’t know how much the mystery aspect will come into play, but perhaps the mystery will create more reason for the hero to have future-seeing superpowers. In any case, Eric makes a romance drama a pretty solid watch for me, so I guess I’ll find out in May.

Oh Hae-young Again will air on Mondays and Tuesdays in May, following Pied Piper.

Kim Ah Joong is still on? I thought she turned this down.
Hope he takes this one. I have some fate in tvN. :)

I also saw articles where it was said she turned town the offer (I can't complain about it, I'll be honest, I don't really like the way she acts...).

I like Kim A-jung as a big screen actress, while her K-drama performances that I've seen have not been particularly remarkable. She looses most of her strengths there, especially voice and physical acting.

That being said, she's still pretty solid compared with the majority of K-drama lead actresses ...

I haven't seen any of her dramas but I quite like her acting in 200 Pounds Beauty. :)

Oh please say yes, Sir. Just for simply reason: Eric + romance drama + TvN = BOMB....!!!

And hopefully they provide a sexy lady to balance his hotness like Park Shi Yeon, Honey Lee or Kim Sarang ㅋㅋ

Oh please not Park Shi Yeon, it will be VERY awkward since it's his ex-girlfriend XD
And as SHCJ, I don't want to return at the time where she is mentioned in each of his articles, or him mentioned in each of her articles, more than 10 years, and the media constantly mention put his/her name while she is married and has children now.
So imagine if they play together in a drama XD

I don't know they were lovers but I thought it's good for showing their profesionalism. Plus, both are equally beautiful with strong sex appeal and decent actors (I love Park Shi Yeon's acting in her latest drama and Eric's Discovery of Romance). Anyway, hope everything turns good.

YES A BIG NO if it is Park Shi Yeon, not that she is a bad actress but because of their past. I think both of them can handle it professionally, but not the fans and media i guess ;p

But I will always welcome Honey Lee or Kim Sa rang. ;)

I think Eric's face is kinda handsomely unique. Sometimes I think he looks like latino, caucasian, or anything but not pure korean. Does he has mixed blood?

His parents look so korean but who knows his ancestor (like grandparents) have mixed blood. Some people intend to have dominant looks from their ancestor even after several generations because we don't know how gene expressions could work lol.

Why push this point even after being shown that his parents are both Korean? Is it impossible for a 'pure' Korean to be handsome in your eyes?

I think he looks a lot like his mom :) I personally think he looks very Korean even if it's not like the typical Korean if there is even such a thing. Very good looking parents.

I just want Eric. Eric and Eric.

This might be impossible at the moment, but I want to see Eric and Han Ye Seul in a same drama again:D because you know their past drama together was kind of controversial one (but i still watched that drama just to see Eric's hotness) :p

There is an article of Eric so that's why I'm here:D.

It has been ages since I saw him in Discovery of Romance. I would prefer to see him in the redemption kinda story since he's really good in dark and intense drama but the synopsis of Oh Hye Young seems messy in a good way.

Two female leads + one male lead means Eric will have romance with both ladies?! Sounds perfect!

Anyway, nice to see him again since I really really like watching his face expressions he made on Discovery of Romance.

I really hope Eric oppa take this role. I have no doubt about quality to every drama (mostly) airing on tvN. I think romance-something dramma (yes!) suits Eric oppa well. I wanted to see his appearance in dramaland after I got news that Dongwan oppa making a cameo on Moorim School. Oppa fighting!^^

As a looooooong time Shinhwa Changjo, I will watch it for Eric alone.
That man always knows how to make woman's heart melted. I still remember his cheesy line on Fire Bird "Do you smell something burned? It's my heard burning for you"
It's been more than a decade and I still clearly remember it! Hahaha!
I'm not kind of a person who loves cheesy lines, but the way Eric said that was.. so.. so.. ughhh.. *dies*

YEP. I agree with y'all thay Eric does NOT looked like a Korean. My mom even said that hundreds times during my Shinhwa Changjo era. He looks like a mixed of Caucasian & Latinos. His face is gorgeously unique.
NOT my type tbh.. but, who cares.. IT'S ERICCC !!!

I hope this doesn't interfere with Shinhwa putting out a new album this year. But more Eric is better than less Eric.

The boys recently had a group meeting. Maybe this is one of the discussion on the table? Guess we'll find out later if Eric's going ahead with the drama with his bros' support or they'll focus on the group's activity~

Always here for Actor!Eric. I love him and his marble eyes. He always gets me right in the feels; such a fun guy to watch. I also like Kim Ah Joong and think she can be so charming in the right role! I wouldn't mind seeing them together at all.

Eric is one of my favorite korean actor. His actings in every roles can convince me to root his characters even though totally jerk one. Hope he sign on this project.
