Rivals since their debut as ‘TVXQ’ and ‘SS501′, members Park Yoochun and Kim Hyunjoong from the respective groups will also meet head-on for their TV dramas.
Yoochun is set to play the lead “Lee Seon Joon” for the KBS drama [SungKyunKwan Scandal], which airs in September*.
Kim Hyunjoong, who recently signed on with the same company as Bae Yong Joon, has been casted as the lead for the TV drama “Mischievous Kiss”, which is set to air after the drama “Road NO 1″ in September. A related personnel said, “The airing date is more or less confirmed for that period.”
[SungKyunKwan Scandal] is based on Jung Eun Gweol’s novel [The Lives of Sungkyunkwan Confucian Scholars]. The story revolves around Kim Yoohui, who cross-dresses as a man to enter SungKyunKwan on behalf of her sickly brother, and encounters Lee Seon Joon, Moon Jae Shin and Yu Yong Ha. It is a story about friendship and love that takes place in a school setting during the Joseon Dynasty.
Aside from Micky Yoochun, other young stars acting in the drama include Song Joong Gi, Yoo Ah-In, Park Min Young and Han Yeon.
“Mischievous Kiss” is adapted from the Japanese manga of the same name and this drama has been dubbed the “second Boys Over Flowers”. Besides Kim Hyunjoong, other stars have recently been casted.
In this acting battle between the greatest idol stars, everyone is waiting to see what kind of work they will produce.
*There’s some discrepancy in the media reports about the airing date. Some reports state August while some say September.
