    Can I just say Ha Ji Won & Lee Seung Gi make such an odd pairing!
    It's like watching Noona Dongsaeng love story.
    Anyway, I'll still watch it cuz I'm a huge fan of HJW.
    I think this might be a hit drama.
    So unnie, fighting!!!

    I love Lee Seung Gi to death but this is rather weird pairing for me. I think Ha Ji Won suits with guys like Jo In Sung.

    Besides them, i don't find the supporting cast that interesting. We'll see how it'll go.

    Is that Byeong Gun from What's Up . hehe. I did'nt even know his real name is Cho Jung Seok. wow now his playing the second fiddle. Love him to bits in What's Up.

    Isn't Seunggi a bit too young for HaJiwon? hmm i don't know if i like the pairing. But it isn;t yet confirmed right. I saw an article that LSG agency is denying it. Hoping that someone that is like HJW age will be casted. I love LSG but just hoping he should act with someone around his age. hehe.

    btw jus saying k-actors are really in short for the 26 above age because they had to go to army and k-actress need to act with k-actor tha is so young which is not in army yet. hehe. that is also why Yoochun and HanJimin in Rooftop Prince . juz saying. k-actress that is young is too little in numbers too.

    I can't wait for this drama. The cast is very interesting and the plot is more intriguing. I have a good feeling that I will love the soundtrack.

    Both leads, if confirmed, have problems from the start. HJW appears to be lowering her stds when the male lead is someone below the status of HB. LSG appears to be benefit more from this pairing. His image seems to be more suited to variety shows. This is the problem of being on 2D1N, it is difficult for the fans to take you seriously when u appear in a drama. Overall, it is an odd paring and if it is supposed to be a rom-com, the on-screen chemistry must be spot on for the drama to be a success. I am alrdy giving this one a skip given that there are soo many better alternatives. The ones who will watch it would probably be the die hard fans for both leads. WHAT HAPPENED TO ALL THE MALE ACTORS? Is it because of the rumoured HJW/HB offscreen romance?

    Oh no!!
    I love Ha Ji Won and I really like Lee Seung Gi but, this role is not for him.
    I would rather see Jo In Sung as the Prince. Or even Jung Woo Sung.
    There are so many great actor that could play the Prince.
    I know Lee Seung Gi is really popular and everything but, that doesn't make him a great actor.
    This pairing is not good.

    A saguek after an another saguek? is this a fushion-saguek or a present day rom-com? And i find this an odd-pairing. HJW with LSG!!!! I dont know how the chemistry will be, but i will wait and see when this drama airs.
  • deyanideyani Posts: 16Member
    So, the lead casts have now been confirmed, I'm still waiting for a clearer storyline. 

    I love Ha Ji Won, so I'll definitely give this drama a chance. I hope both HJW and LSGi can pull this off...

    i have no worried with lee seung gi and ha ji won's chemistry in The king.seung gi is good actor,all his drama was box office.and as we know haji won unni is very talented actress.she know how to creat a good chemistry with her partner.that was also happen in hwang jin yi,jang geun suk is much younger than jiwonnie but they can build very well chemistry even they won best couple in KBS award 2006

    This is a modern day rom-com, not a fusion sageuk...a fiction south korean king and a north korean female agent....

    Ha Ji Won's acting has always been amazing and she never fails to have strong chemistry with all her male leads....but i just wonder how this pairing will turn out to be like, as I cannot really picture her with Lee Seung Gi (no offends to LSG's fans...i do like him since Brilliant Legacy days).....I will wait and see when this drama airs in March... :w00t:

    Ha!Ji!Won! :wub:

    i think LSG is an unusual choice
    he's a cutie though
    lets hope they can work it out

    My faves in rooftop and this :sweatingbullets:
    i'm pulling my hair out as i might have to defy the space time continuum to watch the two dramas
    I'm probably going to ditch the Mon/Tue's dramas to watch these two

    I really really hope this isnt anything like Spy Myungwol but i trust HJW not to disappoint me and she is definitely bad Richard Simmons enough for this role
    Then again even if it was myung wol-ish and even if it was a drama about knitting sweaters or watching paint dry i'd watch it for Ha Ji Won ^_^

    I agree with you. I wont judge their chemistry yet despite people may see them as an awkward couple because off the age and acting standard. both are professional actor actress. somehow I can see they will pull off the character well ^^

    maybe it's the trend of drama these days for the noona-dongsaeng lead actor and actress >_<
    but then, we never know. the PD probably have reasons why they chose these actors actresses anyway. maybe they believe these actors and actresses can really pull off the character well. I reserved my judge until I watch the drama :D

    I actually anticipated for this drama. it's Ha Jiwon drama comeback after Secret Garden. she's indeed one great actress ^^
    and I also love Lee Seunggi. I totally cant wait for this drama.... but then for this drama to start another good drama will end (The Moon Embraces The Sun :( )
    anyway, I'm still anticipated.
