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.

unless new dude is Lee Min Ho mk. II, the words 'idol' and 'little acting experience' do not bode well for this at all.....

But Lee Min Ho was not an idol, so I am afraid it's more likely to be Kin Hyun Joong mark 2 ;)

The only thing that could make this drama even worse is if they also cast Kim Hyun Joong and Koo Hye Sun. You know... for their "talent"...

welp it looks like I had it wrong for almost 4 years now, I could have sworn read somewhere that he was a singer....

and Kim Hyun Joong isn't nearly as expressionless in Playful Kiss as he was in BBF, but I will not buy it that his characters are that way and that is what makes him look wooden - especially after watching Joo Ji Hoon play icy repressed prince in two dramas before him and deliver without needing the excuse that it's ok to not emote because his character has trouble with showing feelings.

Nope, LMH is "just" an actor ;)

Oh, KHJ - how I want him to not act again.
