@zoe13 Thanks for the info! I liked KDW a LOT in Duelist. But he hasn't done a drama since over 10 years so the script must be GOOD for him to return to the small screen. But I think I could enjoy him with MCW. I also like he is older than her. I want her next co-star to be older than her.
I think the article looks weird because Lee Young Ae and Jun Ji Hyun don't get paid 1 million but 10 billion won (1억원). For the FIRST episode. Not necessarily throughout the whole drama I guess?! MCW gets paid 25 million won (2500만원).
@obscuresalmon-hon *tackle hugs* You and me = one mind! I feel ya! I'm suffering from the "lack of drama syndrome" as well. I tried a couple dramas but I don't love any of them. The last one was Cruel City... Unbelievable right?! I hope MCW accept it if she thinks it's a good drama and it will challenge her as a actress. And I'm still hoping for Jung Kyung Ho getting the offer for the male lead. Because MCW and JKH on screen?! TOGETHER!? My dream would be coming true!
That's so sad!!! Worst drama news ever... to cast KWB and Suzy for a LKH drama. Both can't act! Anyways now we have this out of our system and we can concentrate on whether MCW will accept "Goodbye Mr Black" or not.
@marwa___ I'm not active a lot in this thread even though I'm looking forward to this drama. But I wanted to reply to your question. First I don't think KBS has set a number of episodes yet. I also don't think it's necessarily the writer's decision how long the drama is. Descendant of the Sun is pretty expensive already with the oversea filming and the production company has a say in it as well I'm sure. It also depends on the ratings... if DoS doesn't meet the viewers - and KBS' - expectations and the ratings are 10% or under then a lot of money would be wasted on a drama. Of course I hope this won't happen but KBS didn't really have good drama year so DoS needs to be successfull - with its high budget.
MCW fans on DC discussing about the possible comeback to the small screen as well. Rumors on who is going to do the music and stuff. Does this mean it could be a done deal? That MCW is going to accept the role?
@evergreen I got mixed feelings as well.... I'm worried about who could take the leading role. And I'm not so excited about some actors mentioned on other sites. I second Jung Kyung Ho though... He's got the acting talent, the look and I would like to see MCW with a co-star a bit older than her. About the writer... Missing you was such a miss. I enjoyed Smile, You but this was a weekend drama with an average plot. Jung Kyung Ho starred in it, so the chances are high that he gets at least an offer for this drama.
I don't know why but the moment I read about this adaptation 1 or 2 weeks ago I thought they might offer uri Chaewonnie the leading role. And here we are now and she is considering it. YAY! I'm surprised though because it would be a first SBS drama since "It's Okay, Daddy's Girl" which was horrible. So I'm looking forward to see whether she will accept the role or not.
I can say whatever I want, @mktb! I'm not calling her names or insult her. I'm explaining why I don't like her acting... period. Just like I can say what I don't like or like about uri Chaewonnie's acting. Everyone has their weaknesses/strengths but when we live in a world where I cannot criticise the weaknesses but only bless what's good then we don't need forums like this. We're all grown up people! No need to tell me what I can do and what not.
@evergreen I have no particular favourite writer but the ones you mentioned I like. There were no many good dramas in the past 2 years unfortunately so I have lost my trust. I would like to see MCW in a cable drama because they're taking more risks and they take more time filming prior to airing the drama. Also I think MCW needs a good director. NG director did a good job in taking her strength as an actress to hide her weakness. So it's important she gets a director who knows how to work with her. And thank you so much for posting the link @jeonghyang!
Yes. Seems like it's Moon Geun Young who is in talks for the new drama. I'm happy tbh... I like Kang Ji Hwan but I don't see MCW with him. I love how uri Chaewonnie left this message on DC... good to know she knows we're anticipating her comeback to the small screen.
I've seen all these comments about SJK and SHK... and I kinda lol'd. It's not like they went out for dinner on their own. It was with the crew - so basically they did some team building - very common in Korea - while getting ready for the next months filming. Actually MCW and SJK started working on "Nice Guy" WAY earlier... I think 7 months prior to the film airing (considering there is still no airing date for DoS yet). If I remember it correctly they even met with the writer to get to know their characters. On a sidenote: I'm not very fond of SHK's acting either... she is pretty bland. I remember her in "That Winter, The Wind Blows" and playing a blind woman fit her very well because she is great in having dead eyes. I know this sounds harsh but that's how I feel. Her face doesn't show any emotion - all she can do is look pretty. And the reason why she got cast over more talented actresses is because she has a lot of popularity/stardom in Korea. And they need that because this drama is SO expensive they NEED high ratings - they need a successfull drama. And even though SJK is very popular as well I don't think he does have the same amount of stardom as SHK. So KBS chose pretty/popularity over talent. I'm going to check out the drama for SJK but I can only laugh at the people saying that Song-Song will have great chemistry. SJK is capable of having chemistry with a stone. lol
