Lee Dong Gun is in talks to play the role of the dashing announcer Kim Shin while Yoon Eun Hye is in talks to play the role of the maknae writer Na Mi Rae. 'The Future Choice' will center around the office romance that occurs between workers of a broadcast station and is produced by 'Detectives In Trouble's PD Kwon Kye Hong and 'Beethoven Virus' writer Hong Jin Ah. CNBLUE'sYonghwa is also considering a role in this drama as well.
'The Future Choice' will premiere following 'Good Doctor' this October!
If reports are to believed, it appears that actor Lee Dong Gun might soon be making a comeback to the small screen with a new drama. Even better it appears that he will be partnering up with another actress that we haven’t seen in a year, Yoon Eun Hye.
According to reports, Lee Dong Gun and Yoon Eun Hye are currently in considering for KBS’s new Monday-Tuesday drama, “The Future’s Choice.” A representative from KBS’s drama division has stated that “Yoon Eun Hye and Lee Dong Gun are currently in consideration to play the main roles in ‘The Future’s Choice (Script by Hong Jin Ah, Directed By Kwon Gae Hong), which is set to air after ‘Good Doctor.‘” However they continued to state that “It’s not 100% confirmed yet so it could still change. The most accurate of way of describing it would be ‘Highly Likely’.”
This follows on from previous reports that claimed that CN Blue’s Jung Yong Hwa is also being considered for a role in this drama. If this does come to fruition then it would be Lee Dong Gun’s first drama in 5 years since 2008′s MBC “When It’s At Night” and Yoon Eun Hye’s first drama in a year since MBC’s “Missing You.”
Scriptwriter Hong Jin Ah’s previous projects included “The King 2 Hearts” and “Beethoven’s Virus” while Director Kwon Gae Hong has previously worked on “Detectives In Trouble.”
The Future’s Choice is a time travel drama about a lady that has gone back to the past and provides her younger self with tips about life. The drama will focus around the lives of producers, scriptwriters, announcers and other people involved in the broadcasting industry.
More casting possibilities are in the headlines with Yoon Eun-hye (I Miss You) reportedly taking a look at KBS’s upcoming time-travel drama Future Choice, which we can now start calling Mi-rae’s Choice instead because, as expected, the heroine’s name totally IS Mi-rae. (Mirae = future.) Ah, wordplay. (Although, this one was so flatly obvious that it almost doesn’t even qualify as a legit pun.)
I’d heard vague whisperings of Yoon being courted for the show, but now that the news has made its way into the official news cycle, perhaps she’s closer to signing on. Her management company confirmed on August 12 that she has received the offer and is looking at it favorably, though the final decision has yet to be made.
This drama sounds very heroine-centric (as if the title weren’t clue enough) as the main character Mi-rae manages to find a way to travel back in time (details on the method are yet undisclosed) to give her past self life advice. Uh, this seems like a bad idea in SO MANY obvious ways (self-inflicted poofing! Have we learned nothing from Back to the Future?) that I am really curious to know how Mi-rae thinks she can get away with this. Because to even consider this plan, she is either very clever or, um, the other thing.
The present-day timeline is set in a broadcast station, with Mi-rae employed as a maknae writer. Up for a leading role is Lee Dong-gun (Smile Again, Lovers in Paris, Sweet 18), who would play a broadcast announcer, while Jung Yong-hwa (You’ve Fallen For Me, You’re Beautiful) had been previously announced as considering the role of a PD character.
It’s unclear whether Jung Yong-hwa is still with the show—he’d never confirmed in the first place and the latest news involving him dates back a month—or whether he would be relegated to second lead status. The initial reports described his PD role as a main character who has a loveline with the heroine, but I can’t imagine Lee Dong-gun not getting top billing in this scenario. I can picture Jung playing the second lead who still gets some romantic plotlines, but will he be content to play second fiddle? We’ll have to wait and see how it shakes out.
Lee Dong-gun has been out of army duty for over a year, but his last drama was 2008′s MBC drama with Kim Sun-ah, When Night Comes (also called Every Night). It’s been so long since I’ve seen him in anything, but I think I’m cool with the idea of him and Yoon Eun-hye being romantic partners. For one, she has mad chemistry with practically everyone… though admittedly I can’t quite picture her romancing Jung Yong-hwa. Then again, she and Yoo Seung-ho made it work. Kind of. You know, if murderous insanity can be considered part of an effective screen romance.
Mi-rae’s Choice, to be written by Beethoven Virus and The King 2 Hearts writer Hong Jin-ah, will be a Monday-Tuesday drama to follow Good Doctor, which puts its premiere in October.

Fans were disappointed when CNBlue's Jung Yong Hwa turned down the chance to star in the drama "The Heirs" with Park Shin Hye and Lee Min Ho. The singer-actor withdrew from the drama saying he was going to focus on his music. Choi Jun Hyuk, who played a mountain spirit in "Gu Family Book," replaced him in the role of Lee Min Ho's older brother.
Shortly after that Jung Yong Hwa was said to be considering a role as a production director in another drama, which turned out to be the time travel story, "Future Choice." Yesterday Yoon Eun Hye's agency confirmed that she was also considering a role in the same drama. Will she be Jung Yong Hwa's leading lady?
Yoon Eun Hye, who starred in "Missing You," "Coffee Prince," Princess Hours" and "Lie to Me," is deciding on the role of the drama's heroine Mi Rae, a struggling writer at a broadcast station. There she will meet the production director played by Jung Yong Hwa, who appeared in "Heartstrings" and played everyone's favorite boyfriend Shin Woo in "You're Beautiful." He has not had a drama role in two years.
In "Future Choice," Mi Rae finds a way to travel to the past where she will try to convince herself not to make any of the mistakes that have negatively shaped her life. One of the mistakes she wants to avoid is having anything to do with one particular man. But as in any time travel drama, she runs the risk of making her life worse when she returns to the present.
Actor Lee Dong Gun is also considering a role in this drama, his first since leaving military service over a year ago. The star of a dozen dramas, Lee Dong Gun is best known for his work in "Lovers in Paris," "When Night Comes" and "Smile Again." There's no word on which actor will play the romantic lead but Yoon Eun Hye has never had an unconvincing screen romance with any of her leading men. So far, they have included Gong Yoo, Ju Ji Hoon, Park Yoo Chun, Kang Ji Hwan, Yoon Sang Hyun and Lee Min Ho.
Hong Jin A, writer of "Beethoven Virus" and "King 2 Hearts" and the older sister of the Hong sisters writing team, will write the drama. The drama will follow "Good Doctor."

'The Future Choice' is directed by 'Bad Love' and 'Detectives in Trouble's Kwon Kye Hong and written by 'Beethoven Virus' and 'The King 2 Hearts' Hong Jin Ah. This will be Yoon Eun Hye's first production in a year since 'I Miss You' and Lee Dong Gun's return to the small screen in five years since 'When It's At Night' and his discharge from the military back in March. As for Yonghwa, this is his first drama since 'Heartstrings' two years back.
This drama will be incorporating the 'time slip' concept in which a writer working for a broadcast station goes back in time to meet her past self and advise herself on her life.
Yoon Eun Hye will show her bright and lovable charms as the maknae writer Na Mi Rae while Lee Dong Gun will make viewers swoon as the handsome announcer Kim Shin. Yonghwa will also play the role of Park Sae Ju who is a VJ and undercover boss as a grandson of the broadcast station's CEO.
