Kong Hyo-jin and Lee Seung-gi as rating relief pitchers

Kong Hyo-jin and Lee Seung-gi will set out as rating relief pitchers.

The two people are most likely candidates for the MBC drama due this June, "The Discovery of Love". They are currently adjusting minor details. They haven't signed contracts yet but chances of them being on board are very high.

Kong Hyo-jin is known as the viewer rating magnet. That is because of the fact that every MBC drama she has done had an average of 20% or more. Even the drama "Pasta" last January started off with a single digit rate but when it finished, it was near 30%.

This is the first MBC drama for Lee Seung-gi. He confirmed his abilities in SBS. SBS 'Shining Inheritance" in 2009 he was lead in went up to 45% and "My Girlfriend is a Gumi" also recorded mid 20%. The drama they are to cast in is a romantic comedy with the entertainment at base.

Park Hong-gyoon from "Queen Seon-deok" will be directing and sister writers Hong Jeong-eun and Hong Mi-ran from "My Girlfriend is a Gumiho" will have the scripts.

Lee Seung-gi and the Hong sisters have once worked in the drama mentioned above. Their tight relationship also helped Lee Seung-gi come on board for the new drama.

MBC has been in a rating slump for the past year. "My Princess" with two top stars Kim Tae-hee and Song Seung-heon even didn't make it to 20%. To reinstate MBC to "drama kingdom", the Kong Hyo-jin and Lee Seung-gi card is something different.

Lee Seung-gi won’t reteam with Hong sisters after all

Hm, so apparently Lee Seung-gi won’t be the new lead of the Hong sisters writing team’s new drama Discovery of Affection, which has also teased a possible Gong Hyo-jin casting.

The synopsis for the project has reportedly been entirely rewritten, and with that goes Lee Seung-gi’s potential return as their leading man; he’d anchored last year’s adorable fantasy comedy, My Girlfriend Is a Gumiho. All that’s been given to describe the project is that it’s about the romance between a top actor and a has-been actress.

I know this news may come as a disappointment to a certain co-blogger, but to be honest I’m perfectly happy with it. One of the things I appreciate about the Hongs is their willingness — preference, even — to go with new lead actors every time, many of them on the lesser side of famous. (They tend to do the opposite with their favorite secondary actors, bringing some back for drama after drama. Choi Ran has appeared in four of six, Ahn Seok-hwan in three.) The exception to this is Jang Geun-seok, but that’s because he moved up from second lead in Hong Gil Dong to main man in You’re Beautiful.

In any case, as much as I enjoy Lee Seung-gi, I’m even more curious about the new direction this drama is taking, because apparently the new contender for the lead is…Cha Seung-won??

With the synopsis revision, the Hongs have aged up the hero a bit, taking him out of his twenties. According to one broadcast rep, Cha Seung-won has taken a solo meeting (without his manager) with producers to discuss the project, which was confirmed by his agency.

It takes quite a leap to go from a good-natured, grinning boy-next-door to a dark, tattooed badass. And I think I’m liking the possibility, if only because I’m dying to see the grizzled, tough Cha putting his funnybone to work as a Hong sisters hero. For one thing, they have a knack for stripping a man of his dignity, in the funniest possible ways. Jae Hee dressed up as Juliet’s nurse. Oh Ji-ho as a plumber. Kang Ji-hwan miming his way out of recognition. Jang Geun-seok in every scene of You’re Beautiful.

I mean, it’s ridiculous and crazy, right? So crazy…it just might work?

Discovery of Affection will be directed by Queen Seon-deok’s Park Hong-kyun, and is MBC’s next Wednesday-Thursday drama, to replace the new series Royal Family.

Yoo In Na & Yoon Kye Sang cast for MBC’s upcoming drama, “Best Love”

On March 23rd, a representative from MBC’s upcoming mini-series, “Best Love“, confirmed that Yoo In Na and Yoon Kye Sang became the newest additions to the cast. The two had attended a script-reading together, and it’s said that they contributed great enthusiasm to the rehearsal.

“Best Love” tells the story of a former A-list starlet who becomes entangled in a love story with the current top stars of the industry. Gong Hyo Jin and Cha Seung Won are confirmed as the lead actors.

Yoon Kye Sang is expected to play the role of ‘Yoon Pil Ju,’ a man with absolutely no interest in celebrities and their world. Meanwhile, Yoo In Na will play the role of ‘Kang Seri’, a fellow girl group member of Gong Hyo Jin’s and the love interest of Cha Seung Won.

The drama will begin airing in May.

Co-ed's Hyoyoung to star in new drama

Coed's Hyoyoung has been cast for MBC’s upcoming drama 'Best Love' next to Gong Hyojin, Cha Seungwon, Yoo Inna and Yoon Kyesang.

The drama revolves around an old top star who ends up in a love triangle with the most popular male stars of today. Hyoyoung will be portraying the character Harumi, a close friend of the leading role.

Hyoyoung was previously casted in 'Jungle Fish 2' but because this drama only lasted for 8 episodes, and was shorter than a normal series, industry representatives are calling this her official acting debut. The cast members began their script-reading on the 23rd to prepare for its broadcast in May.

Bae Seul Gi cast for MBC’s “Best Love”

Bae Seul Gi

Singer/actress Bae Seul Gi will be returning to her acting career through MBC’s “Best Love“!

Having gained experience through musicals, one-acts, and movies, this will be her debut in a drama mini-series. Bae Seul Gi had unfortunately been dropped from the movie “Final“, making this casting more important to her than ever.

As the drama revolves around the love story of a former girl group member, Gong Hyo Jin, Bae Seul Gi will be playing a member of the same girl group. Producers felt that her singing background fitted perfectly with the role, since she had made her debut in 2005 with “The Red” and later had gone solo.

The line-up for the drama also includes Yoo In Na and former Baby V.O.X. member, Lee Hee Jin.
