Oh, Good God.

According to Koala, the latest contenders for the leading lady role in Yoochun's melo 'I Miss You' are Gu Hye Sun and Lee Min Jung.

TPTB must really hate me!

Those are the only two kdrama actresses I cannot stand. I might even be prepared to tolerate Jang Nara more than those two. GHS is the worst kdrama actress I've ever seen - I can deal with wooden but it's hard to ignore when someone on your screen constantly emotes like a chipmunk on speed - I've seen her in Boys Over Flowers, Absolute Boyfriend, The King and I, that ridiculous Eric fusion thing, and she was uniformly unbearable in every single one. To add insult to injury, she has little chemistry with her costars and I don't find her in the least good-looking. UGH. BARF.

Lee Min Jung is objectively pretty (though she makes me think of a borzoi for some reason), and isn't as teeth-grindingly bad as GHS but I just cannot stand her. That started with BOF, where her appearance (and utterly ridiculous amounts of screentime) signified the turning point of when this drama went from awesome to flaming trainwreck. The disaster that was BIG did not help. In general, she just irritates me for some reason. I mean, I even skipped MIDAS with my obsession Jang Hyuk because she was in it.

Basically, either one of them in, I am out. The end.

I feel you pain, I hate hate GSH as an actress. The girl just cannot act, I'm sorry.

I didn't finish any drama with her because of her acting.

LMJ, well, I do think she is pretty, but she does have something annoying about her, not sure what is it. Or maybe the character roles she gets are all annoying lol

I'm with you on Gu Hye Sun, you summed up my thoughts on her as an actress perfectly. I'm indifferent toward Lee Min Jung; she's annoying and overly cutesy, but I can watch her in something if I can fast forward or if she's a secondary character. (I fast forward to watch Smile, You and Who Are You?).

Aren't Yoochun's character and his female lead supposed to be the same age? That worries me as GHS is two years older than Yoochun. Makes me think there's a better likely hood they'd go with her. (LMJ is six years older) Of course Yoochun looks a bit older than his age, so that might not matter. I'm not sure which girl I'd rather. I may have to just watch the children/teen parts and than leave. It's just too bad all the actresses in this age range ('82-'90) are all either busy with other projects or on breaks.

Yeah, this drama is off my list utterly if either one of these is cast.

Lee Min Jung is overly cutesy, puke inducing at times, but I found her pretty tolerable in Smile, You. But if she plays someone super teary, it'll get old really fast. I'm willing to give her a chance though.

Your Gu Hye Sun hate me makes me laugh for some reason. I've only ever seen her in BOF but I have such a visceral negative reaction to all things BOF related that few involved have managed to overcome it. Only Lee Min Ho and Kim Bum have done so, so far. Her face just upsets me, lol. It's really terrible of me.

Oh and yes to Kim So Eun because she's just the type of girl who fits with Yoochun' softer on screen personality. But I think she's already tied up with that new drama, Horse Doctor no? :(

Lee Min Jung is a pretty thing but I feel like they keep getting her to "act cute". She is cute to begin with. The over the top aegyo-ing just makes it all very annoying. She had a serious role in Cyrano Dating Agency and that was such a huge change from what I'd seen before. I might be in the minority in that I preferred her being paired up with Lee Min Ho in BOF over him and Gu Hye Sun.
Speaking of Gu Hye Sun, would we wish her brand of annoying on any man? *groans* That girl is the worst thing to ever grace the screen. She just hams it up and makes the most dreadful faces. My good friend and I watched "The Musical" for Daniel Choi and Park Ki Woong and it was quite a trial ignoring her.

This casting news is really worrying. I hope they come to their senses and offer the role to a good actress. Yoochun has chemistry with his leading ladies but forcing him to romance Gu Hye Sun is painful to even think about. He'd do better with a pile of laundry as his co-star. Poor Chun. :(

leslielei, above, mentioned Park Shin Hye. She'd be adorable if they allowed her to channel her Cyrano Dating Agency maturity. That's another girl who's very nice when she's left alone and not ordered to be extra cutesy and what not.

princess_narnia i agree w/ lee min jung and minho.haha but for bof ive skipped the jandi/junpyo parts and went directly watching KimBum and Kim So Eun's parts. Park Shin Hye had a melodramatic role before , i think that drama where she died? she can go melodrama but for rom com she has a tendency to over act a bit.Or maybe because Youre Beautiful is a drama that required over acting?lol idk..but yes for the cyrano dating she was better in that movie.

I watched MUSICAL for 1 episode but dropped it.Couldnt take the facial expressions,it was too painful to watch. >.<

Someone on my tlist talking about Hong Soo Hyun being?did someone here about that?im not really sure about her though i love her acting

Nooooooo to GHS! She's horrible and I couldn't even finish BOF cuz of her. She's definitely not pretty and can't act. She was a terrible choice for the Makino role. I loved the Japanese & Taiwanese versions though.

Lee Min Jung...I don't really have a problem with, so I'd prefer her over GHS. But like someone mentioned above, Park Shin Hye would be a good choice, but I don't care for Park Min Young (but even she would be better than GHS). But...I have this weird inkling it'll be the one we all dread...

Look at it this way - if GHS gets cast in this, we can consider that poor Yoochun sacrificed for the greater good - I mean, she could have been cast in Joo Won's drama instead. *shudder*

Lee Min Jung - I used to actively dislike her too, but she won me over in "Midas" (it was actually the Jang Hyuk who left me disappointed at the end *of this drama * sigh ** ), but Gu Hye Sun is seriously bad as and actress. Anyways, who is the main guy in this drama?

Park Yoochun (Sungkyunkwan Scandal, Miss Ripley, Rooftop Prince. He was awesome in them IMO. You may also have heard of him because hr is also a member of the boy band JYJ - the guys who split up from DBSK after a lawsuit about horrible labor practices). The writer is the one who wrote Can You Hear My Heart. So except for the actress, this is way up my alley.

I liked LMJ in Smile, You and her movie, Wonderful Radio but Big kind of killed my liking for her.
GSH is one actress I don't think I'll ever ever ever warm up to...EVER. Her mere presence makes me instinctively want to run far far far away.
It's not her looks (even though I do think she's not v. pretty) it's that she has no acting skills to speak of. Her hair in every drama is basically a shitty variation of the same ugly style I can't stand on any female lead-and she can't pull it off like others. Coincidently that's basically the description of I think almost every role she's played in a drama too. And to add insult, she's the reason I could never suffer through BoF...
And I know she might be talented in other fields but I don't care, I don't like her on my screen.

Some people need to understand we have nothing against GHS the person, but GHS the actress we have because the girl is really bad at it.

We don't feel any emotion through her acting and she never improved. Her facial expressions also are the same. The girl was just lucky to be in BOF.


She is talented but not in Acting, sorry.

too much hate for goo hye sun? why, BOF became an old time favorite drama! the ratings were overwhelming beating EOE. what? 30% and higher! how dare you criticize her acting? the success of BOF was practically becoz of her and LMH who had awesome chemistry! there were some weak spots in the drama but they became unnoticeable with GHS and LMH on the roll. reading your comments makes me think you're afraid GHS will be doing great for this drama and build good chemistry with YC. the thing is...you can't tell unless you've seen them together!

GHS is a good actress but you refuse to see that. there are many actresses who fail in acting but you hadn't even noticed. so it boils down to only one thing. you simply hate her. is it becoz she's got everything?

LOL what?
I have yet to read one comment til yours mentioning how they hate her as a person.
Ever think that maybe your perception of her is subjective? You might see her as great and feel she has chemistry with her co-stars. But others don't. There's never going to be a clear cut right answer here because there is no rating what people like.
And disliking a person's acting does NOT mean we hate her or are envious/ jealous of her. Everyone has clearly stated that. That's a lot of assumptions to make!

I wish her all the success in the world. Just as long as it's not. on. my. screen.

I didn't mind GHS so much in BOF (thought she was better than Inoue Mao, who had the same role in the jdrama and managed to be 1000xmore annoying so probably GHS came off better in comparison) but I'm not sure she's the best fit for Yoochun (and I'm not quite into him either).

LMJ would be a pretty ok choice if the role was something more serious, but against Yoochun.....I'd have loved to see someone like Kim So Eun. It's not the age question, really - they can look younger if styled/made up to do so, but somehow I just feel like the chemistry wouldn't be right, especially since I'm not super into Yoochun either.

From: [identity profile] dangermousie.livejournal.com
I thought Mao was awesome but MMV.

Honestly, BOF had such horrible writing, I wasn't ready to blame her acting for my issues with Jandi (if the writing was OK, I could have dealt with her acting), but she's been uniformly bad in everything else I've seen her in.

you know, i'll never understand the GHS appeal, i'm okay with korean actress who you know, cannot act and are mostly eye candy, but most of them actually have incredible on screen charisma and chemistry (aka kim tae hee, gorgeous as hell, not a good actress, but always ends up selling her part), but to me she is not that good looking, in fact she is average at most, her looks are bland as hell, or is charismatic or has good chemistry with her partners, i honestly don't get how she still keeps getting jobs.

Alright, try to audition for the role but if you dont make it, here's a better suggestion, GO AND APPLY AS MCY'S PERSONAL ASSISTANT, CARRY HIS BAGS FOR HIM, after all you sound like you are willing to take a bullet for him. GHS who recently has an exhibit for CHARITY, who wants to inspire people to do good, an actress who wants to use her status as a celebrity to influence people in good ways, and not to be famous or get rich, and here you are insulting someone like her? Who in her right mind who would insult a person beautiful inside and out?! W ho do you idolize then? These idols who did a lot of plastic surgeries? who do now know anything in life than themselves and vanity?!

also, for terrible actresses in kdrama, GHS would have to be a LOT worse before she's nearly as irritating/bad as Kim Sa Rang in A Love To Kill (one of my earliest kdramas, and I don't know how she managed it but her character was not only annoying but spat out every single line of dialogue with the same inflection, I only made it through that drama on rewatch by tuning out every time she spoke).

GHS gets the meaty roles coz the producers obviously have seen her acting prowess. so watch out! these hate words and no-GHS-your-screen campaign might boomerang on you very soon!

if none of you will be watching this drama...suit yourself! there are others who will. like as if your number matters. anyways, GHS hadn't said yes...and i don't think she will!
