The drama I am most excited about? Yoon Shi Yoon/Park Shin Hye's upcoming Flower Boy Next Door. ♥ I read about it on Korean news sites yesterday and was waiting for something a bit more solid to come out, which it did this morning (and DB just made a post about it). I AM EXCITE. Park Shin Hye's always had a likeable and warm quality about her, Yoon Shi Yoon I've liked since his debut with High Kick and really upped the ante on his acting in Me Too, Flower, and I've liked both the Flower Boy installments so far.

I'm also interested in Jeon Woo Chi and Joo Won's Secret Agent drama, though with the latter I'm tempered by my ambivalence towards Choi Kang Hee. Oh, and Cheongdamdong Alice - Park Shi Hoo and Moon Geun Young! I still think she's a little young for him, but they could probably make it work. My main problem with that drama is actually the fact that the more I hear about the female lead - her wish to be Cinderella, dumping her boyfriend in the process, shallowness etc. - the more I dislike her. I'm going to have a hard time enjoying a drama where I am fundamentally against what the female lead is doing, so I'm hoping they tweak a few things before it airs.

You look like you will be busy with quite a few potential obsessions on that list, though. There are so many melos coming up!

Joo Won's drama is dead to me. Did you hear for secondary guy they cast someone even younger than JW? LOLOL WTF! It all makes me think the heroine role was written for someone much younger and then either CKH wanted it and got it or they couldn't get anyone age-appropriate and went for her. WTF, WTF!

I am actually now excited for JWC - it sounds screwed up enough to appeal.

I am excited melos are coming back...

I know little about CA. I love Park Shi Hoo but MCW has the worst drama-picking skills so hmmmm

LOL REALLY? Who? I've heard that the heroine was definitely written for someone younger, so now that they've casted Choi Kang Hee they've rewritten the role to suit an older woman. Clearly they didn't think far enough to change the OTHER roles, though. What baffles me is why they'd even go for CKH in the first place if she didn't suit the role - I could understand them bending the rules/script a bit in order to slot in someone with A-list oomph - say, if they managed to convince someone of Kim Tae Hee/Ha Ji Won calibre to take the role. But CKH? And here I thought there would finally be a Joo Won drama that could excite me.

My interest in JWC is sliding in proportion to the screwed up factor, LOL. I'm still in it for Cha Tae Hyun, but the UEE aspect sounds incredibly messed up. I keep wishing they cast CKH in JWC instead and UEE in Joo Won's drama - so much more age appropriate! At least UEE's role in JWC was meant for a younger girl, though.

From what I've heard of CA, MGY's character is a fashion designer who finds herself in the classy Cheongdamdong neighborhood and decides that her goal in life is now to score a rich husband and solve all her problems. Along the way she ditches her old bf - Nam Goong Min, to boot - and meets Park Shi Hoo. Not exactly someone I could identify with or even sympathize with, tbh.

Any drama they cast CKH is dead to me, so I'd rather they didn't cast her in JWC either. (Plus, a weathered lady as a evil sorcerer's pawn makes less sense than a presumably sweet and definitely beautiful young woman).

They cast some kid from an idol group who is either 21 or 22. LOLOLOL whut CKH looks old enough to be his mother.

I honestly do not get the casting. She is not A-list nor is she gorgeous - neither behind-the-scenes nor dramawise does the casting make any sense whatsoever.
