Honestly speaking, I hope the chose someone new, I don't think any of the suggested actors really fit Domouji. And I hate to say this and a whole bunch of you will kill me, but not even Matsumoto Jun fit the part. Don't get me wrong HYD J-version was great, but if you read the manga, and watch the anime, you see how he doesn't fit the part at all. Do you really think Jun could fight and beat up people in abundance , I don't think so, so to me he didn't really fit and it was a bit unrealistic, I love Matsumoto-san, just not as Domouji, I always thought that him and Shun should have switch parts. It would have made more sense. Jun would have fit Rui's part more naturally then Shun did, and Shun would have fit Domouji part more naturally. Any way back to the subject. I think they should think carefully about who would play that part in Korea. They have an opportunity to make the best HYD. Cause everyone knows the the asian countries enjoy competition on the same story. Since I can't really think of anyone young that could play Domouji, including the one already sited (they don't fit to me, like Matsumoto doesn't fit, but Matsumoto fits better then them), I hope there is some new talent that would take the role. I really do hope so. If they made it 5 to 10 years ago don't you think Won Bin or Goo Yoo would make a perfect Domouji? *sigh* oh well, hopefully there is someone else of their standard.


I SAY AGAIN, the question is for a new face in Korean actors instead of the typical well known Korean actor to play Domouji. I think a new up and rising actor that fits the part should get it. Like This is an example, how Matsumoto Jun got the same part because of his popularity at the time, don't get me WRONG, I think Jun did a great job and he did the best he could, but he doesn't fit Domouji's character which is 50% violent and strong. Do you honestly think Matsumoto could beat up a lot of really strong guys by himself? No, that is why I say he doesn't fit the part though I love him. And I was saying how I can't think of any popular Korean actor that could fit the part for the same reasons Jun couldn't and they have an opportunity to choose a more Domouji like person to play the part. I love the J-HYD too, but if you read the manga or anime you would understand what I am talking about. If you haven't don't comment on it. I said I like it, but it doesn't change the fact that Jun doesn't quite fit the part. Even though he is a lovable and huggable bear. MAH!

I disagree, I think Matsumoto became exceedingly popular in Kimi wa Petto (which is where I fell in love with him, freakin' awesome and the kiss scene ) and in Gokusen. That popularity fed into his part in HYD. But like I said, If you watch the Drama alone then it's okay, but come on do you really think Jun fights all that well I mean he is little even by Japanese standards. Personality was even a little awkward, though he is better than all the candidates that were name for the K-Drama. But I guess you would have to read the manga or watch the anime to get what I am saying.

I read that when Jun first got the call about HYD, he thought he was gonna play Rui. So maybe even he thinks that he was better suited for that role! xD But, I agree that it may have been a bit better had he played Rui and Shun Domouji. (we'll never know for sure, though!) Although, the Inoue Mao - Matsujun pairing worked out extremely well in the end.

MatsuJun did play the role well, I am looking forward who's playing Domjouji in K-Version.. >_<

I think played the role as well as he could (not knocking him) just he didn't fit the character is all.

well yeah the manga and the anime was different but Jun's acting was really great as Domyouji in HYD but I don't want him to be acting as the same character for the K-version of HYD

i would have to agree with some people on this case. i would like to see a new face. bring new actors into the character. especially since there is going to be a lot of competition going on. and seeing that there is going to be competition, i would like to be able to compare different actors, not the same person in two different dramas.

this is the only remake of a drama that i've ever been excited for. i really hope the casting of the parts will be character-fitting instead of being based off popularity. i agree, if it was 10 years ago, hyun bin or goo yoo who've been perfect for the part. i want a new face to play the role. as for the girl role, go for go ah ra or lee yeon hee. they're yong and talented. park shin hye would be good too.
for the guys, hyun joon looks like a rui, but still..???

i kinda agree with, but i think only his look doesnt fit the role of doumuji, jun in real life acts the same he did in the drama, and in the japanese version they are suppose to be hot and all but i think only oguri shun was the only fitting actor to his role, the others not so much.
ps. JUST MY OPINION DONT EAT ME UP FOR THIS.

Yeah I actually agree, but not only his looks didn't fit but come one do you think he could fight? THat was like 50% of Domouji's personality so If you can't fight why have that part? LOl. Though I still love Jun.r And I agree with everything else you said.
