Seo Hyun-jin up to romance Eric in Oh Hae-young Again

Ooh, I like this better: Upcoming mistaken-identity romance Oh Hae-young Again had been courting Choi Kang-hee (Dazzling Temptation) to potentially star opposite Eric (Discovery of Romance), but she has declined and now the offer is out to Seo Hyun-jin (Let’s Eat 2, Three Musketeers).

I’d be thrilled if she took it, because while I’m hot-and-cold on Choi Kang-hee, I absolutely love Seo Hyun-jin and want her to keep getting lead roles in romantic comedies. She was endearingly cute as the easily flustered princess in Three Musketeers, and followed that by being utterly winning in Let’s Eat 2. She’s got a knack with comic timing and a commitment to her roles that I find very engaging, so I hope she signs on.

In Oh Hae-young Again, Seo Hyun-jin’s would-be character was jilted the night before her wedding and is described as fearless and clueless. (Seo Hyun-jin is perfect for fearless and clueless!) She’s one of the titular Oh Hae-youngs; there are two, both women working in the catering industry, one a lower-level manager and the other a higher-ranked team lead. Naturally, the name mix-up causes headaches for both. Worse yet, the other Oh Hae-young happens to be a woman she’d gone to school with, who was admired for her beauty and refinement; people always compared our heroine to her, which killed her confidence.

The leading man has the interesting(ly random) ability to see into the future, and gets caught up in the ladies’ entangled lives. Couldn’t he just see his way out with his clairvoyance? Maybe he’s not a very good psychic. In any case, this is the role currently out to Eric, who is still considering.

Directing is PD Song Hyun-wook of Marriage Not Dating; writer Park Hae-young did the shows Old Miss Diary and I Live in Cheongdam-dong. Oh Hae-young Again is set for the Monday-Tuesday tvN slot following Pied Piper, which follows Cheese in the Trap. It premieres in May.

oooh, I would love it if she took this - Three Musketeers made me a fan, and she'd make an adorable romcom lead, as we saw in LE2.

She is quite underrated, isn't it? Will glad to see her in more romcom. She was adorable in Three Musketeers and LE2

Oh..please Eric and Seo Hyun Jin say YES to this. Love him in Discovery of Romance and love her in Lets Eat. Hottie couple. When will they confirm?

I'm sure there'll be another female lead. Any speculation who will be? I hope Jung Yu Mi will take another lead XD.

So far there's no mention of the 2nd female lead yet who we now know will play the higher rank at the company than the lead actress. Some how I can see the fireworks between the 2 women butting head and the male lead being stuck between their war XD Curious of the 2nd male lead too :)

I haven't seen Seo Hyun Jin's works but based on Javabeans' observations, it sounds great. Beside, we can trust tvN casting PD :)

Am I the only one that dislike her? I find her character annoying in Let's Eat 2 although she was fine in Three Musketeers. She's just slightly better than Choi Kang-hee. Sigh !!! Aren't there other actresses that are more suitable?

Oh please...not again complaining!! Why people never satisfied. As long as the characters are well written, the story is interesting, the chemistry is okay, why don't we just try to enjoy it. I think she and Eric will match well.

And we still need to wait another actress who'll play another Oh Hye Young though.

I'm the type that need to like both leads before I even wanna watch it. Does not matter to me if the script and chemistry is good.

I love Eric but have yet to find an actress that match him well in terms of looks, acting and chemistry, with the exception of Jung Yumi. I think Kang Sora may be a good match though.

Jung Yu Mi isn't that pretty but her actings is really good. I thought many was complaint when the first time Yu Mi was replaced Yoon Eun Hye years ago in Que Sera Sera. Who knows it turned out so well.

Eric is an awesome actor who can make his leading ladies shine. So, I think this pair will work. And somehow, this drama will be a story about 2 female leads fight and confuse over everything including a man. I think instead of keep complaining over and over again, better to find another leading lady soon to see how works this story will be.

Disagree wholeheartedly.

Jung Yu-mi is very pretty and has an underrated and what I call a "quiet" beauty.

SHJ can shine on her own.

As for Eric, his acting has had its ups and downs and DoL is the 1st time where I thought he really broke through as an actor.

Well, Jung Yu Mi is pretty but she's not what korea said the standard beauty. But she absolutely very cute.

Eric's acting is okay even from the earlier days. I knew him from Phoenix but I think he was really good in Super Rookie which made me fan of him. He only can't convince me in saeguk drama. But I hope one day he can prove me wrong XD.

Like I had stated, JYM has an underrated, "quiet" beauty.

She actually has better a facial structure and features than some other actresses who get more acclaim for their beauty.

I am not too upbeat about her either...Wish someone with a more serious acting panache,comes up for the role.

Didn't think SHJ's character in LE2 was annoying.

Yeah, her character had flaws and had issues w/ Yoon Doo-joon's character (she had her reason), but that's what made her character (and hence their relationship) interesting.

All too often, people want a flawless, totally proper ("nice girl) character for the female lead which is BORING.

And it wasn't like SHJ's character was just meanie (to everyone), she just wanted to "get back" at YDJ's character for what had happened during their childhood.

The reason why YDJ's character ended up falling for her was b/c he saw that she was really a nice person deep down (a bit insecure, but nice) and had her fun side (which was brought out over the course of the series).

There were those who pined for Lee Soo-kyung's character as the female lead in the 1st LE - but while I like the actress, her character was even meaner to YDJ's at 1st and she didn't have a real reason to be (also, their romance seemed a bit forced and their relationship didn't feel quite true w/ regard to its progression).

Ended up liking SHJ and her character better than LSK and her character, but liked the supporting cast/characters better in the 1st LE.

I've followed Eric for quiet sometimes (from Super Rookie era). I think he always maintain to carry the show. He's one rare actor who always have good chemistry with female leads, second female leads, supporting roles,bromance even with the enemies. So, I expect, it doesn't matter the female leads, the chemistry can be bulit up.

I don't know if I really love her or not. Her character in Let's Eat 2 is one of the worst female lead ever character that I have ever seen. I mean she portrayed it well, and the character turned out to be a jerk, so you know. Anyway, I'd like to see her in another drama and wish her luck! ^^

I hated her character in LE2. Nothing against the actress though.

Not quite.

SHJ's character started off being "mean" to Yoon Do-joon's character b/c she wanted to get revenge for something that happened during their childhood.

But over time, they became good friends which became something more.

While her character had its flaws (mainly insecurity) - it's what made her and their relationship interesting.

It's not like she was a total b!!ch to everyone.

When I first read Choi Kang-hee's name my stomach churned. I am glad Seo Hyun-ji is taking the role. And Eric, oh Eric..sublime

Agree. Seo Hyun Jin is one of the genuine actresses in her age group. She was amazingly believable in her role in Let's Eat 2. I hope Eric and she are hot and sweet together.

Have never seen her in anything. Maybe I'll give those two dramas you named a try. I've been so hesitant about Let's Eat 2 since I loved Let's Eat so much but I'll give it a go soon.

I so much love her, both in king's daughter and three musketeers. I haven't seen let's eat 2 but I think I'll go check it out since she's the lead, not a fan of Eric though

She was adorable, quirky, cute and obnoxious in Let's Eat 2. First watched her in Feast of the God's, she was wickedly wonderful.

That was a difficult role to do well and she hit it out of the park.

Eric's future seeing ability might not be as random as you think. I think he will see the future of one of the Oh Hae Young and mistakenly assume its the other Oh Hae Young's future or something. Anyway, it might be a vital part of the story... that just what i think.

Ah love her! Have watched 80% of the dramas she's been in although not going in for the purpose of her and coming out loving her portrayal of characters each time. She does off-beat comedy in an endearing and natural way that many actresses fail to do.

Well, she's not that popular but I think she's an okay actress.

Anyway, I think whoever the female leads it will be okay since Eric is in there lol. He already proved that he can carry the show whether it's female or male centric story.

it worries me that two actresses have already turned down the role. is that a bad sign? before taking the lead role in Discovery of Romance Eric turned down two other offers (and made the right decision) so i want to say he has good instinct in projects. of course, Spy Myung Wol was a disaster (which sadly, started out promising).

honestly tho, if it's Eric, i'm watching.
