Apparently this is the secondary guy in Secret Agent War:



Name of Hwang Chan Sung. I know nothing of him other than he is (a) an idol (b) born in 1990.

He is supposed to woo Choi Kang Hee as Joo Won's rival.

!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Let this sink in.

Choi Kang Hee, born in 1977, and looking every day (and more) her age, was never going to work for me as a love interest for Joo Won, born a decade later. But now she is going to be in a love triangle with someone who is barely out of high school and 13(!!!!!) years her junior?!

You know, CKH. Plain, older than her years, comedian CKH. Not a 30-something goddess like Kim Tae Hee or anything. In a love triangle with a 22-year old and 25-year-old. And playing a deadly sexy secret agent.

Ahahahahahahahahahahhahahaaaaaa the casting people must have been taking some amazing drugs.

Clearly, this drama was thought out with a much younger female lead in mind and somehow they got CKH and never adjusted.

Now I am almost tempted to tune in to see this. This is going to be glorious. Glorious.

I remember reading interviews of Joo Won in which he said he wanted to play a character his age and that had a sweet romance for a change. Somehow, I don't think things turned out the way he expected.

Fact is, Secret Agent War is no longer the drama he signed up for since the script had to be somewhat altered because of CKH.

But I don't think there's any way in hell he's in a position to pull out. He's still too much of a newbie to "survive" intact and, from watching him in 1N2D, I don't think it would be in his nature anyway.

Best case scenario would be that CKH herselfs gives up but I don't think that's likely either. It boggles the mind but Korean netizens are super excited at the thought of watching her together with Joo Won.

And now this casting news.... Yeah.... I do like JW a lot and was very impressed by his performance in Gaksital but there's no way I'm wasting my time on this trainwreck in the making.

So the KHS/LMH pairing had gotten way more flack in Korea than this pairing?

It boggles the mind.

I do NOT get Korean netizens - it's funny, in the international fandom, the reaction to this is 99% negatuve.

I am skipping this. It's going to be the first Joo Won drama I am skipping, but no way...not even for JW,

Korean netizens are soooooooo weird. That's just putting it lightly.
