class="titleNews"B1A4′s Jinyoung, SUJU-M′s Henry, and More Revealed in First Lineup for Mnet′s New Music Drama

Bringing an array of talented artists into one production, Mnet revealed the first lineup for its upcoming new music drama, Perseverance, Goo Hae Ra (translated).

On November 17, Mnet named B1A4′s Jinyoung, Super Junior-M′s Henry, Ulala Session′s Park Kwang Sun and Yu Seong Eun in the first cast line up for the new drama.

Mnet revealed that a new music drama was in the works since September, as the staff began looking for talented artists and musicians, who excel in both singing and dancing.

B1A4′s Jinyoung, SUJU-M′s Henry, and More Revealed in First Lineup for Mnet′s New Music Drama

The drama is about an unlucky young girl, Goo Hae Ra, who has a difficult time getting signed to an agency, as she dreams of having her father′s posthumous work be revealed to the world. She and a set of twin brothers, Kang Sae Jong and Kang Sae Chan, attempt to join Superstar K2 to follow their dreams.

Cast as Kang Sae Chan, B1A4′s Jinyoung has proved his talents, composing, writing, and producing B1A4 albums, as well as getting noticed in dramas and movies.

Henry, whose musical genius has been acknowledged by the public, will be playing an adorable character similar to himself, also named Henry.

Ulala Session′s Park Kwang Sun, who became a star through Superstar K will be Jang Goon, who is the only son of a family of 16 generations of sons who suffers from OCD. Yu Seong Eun, who let her powerful vocals be shown through Voice Korea will be playing the role of Lee Woori.

B1A4′s Jinyoung, SUJU-M′s Henry, and More Revealed in First Lineup for Mnet′s New Music Drama

In charge of the music drama, Kim Yong Bum PD stated, "It took awhile to gather talented musicians in one place. We′ve revealed Jinyoung and Henry, who are breaking stereotypes about idols, and Yu Seong Eun and Park Kwang Seon, who both have powerful voices, as the first line up of actors for the drama. As we′ve poured our hearts and souls to gather this amazing group, we′ll continue to work hard to create great music and a moving story for this music drama."

The drama will begin filming at the end of November. The drama is expected to air sometime in January 2015.

Mnet’s new youth music drama begins casting cr to: girlfriday | November 17, 2014

Jinyoung, Henry

It’s been a while since cable station Mnet announced that it would be following up its high school music drama Monstar with a new series in the same mold, but it looks like casting has finally begun on the project, called Persevere, Gu Hae-ra. (In Korean, the title is a turn of phrase that means literally, Fail seven times, succeed on the eighth, meaning to be dogged and persevere. They stuck a gu for “nine” into the phrase to get a 7-8-9 pun, which also turns the last bit of the phrase into the heroine’s name.)

Monstar was filled with idols too, so it comes as no surprise that they’re looking to idol singers and reality audition program contestants as their talent pool, though we’ll likely see some rookie actors joining the mix as well. First up is Jinyoung of idol group B1A4, who has been cast as one of the drama’s leads. He made his acting debut in the short tvN miniseries Elegant You, and then scored a role opposite Shim Eun-kyung in the movie Miss Granny (where he was pretty adorable as the hapless rocker grandson who didn’t know he was crushing on his own grandma).

He’ll play one of two twin brothers who are caught in a love triangle with the heroine, and neither his twin brother nor their leading lady has been cast yet. The drama will be about the heroine who doesn’t have the right qualifications to make it into a talent agency, who dreams of letting her father’s posthumous work be known to the world. The drama will begin with all three leads’ entry into the reality audition program Superstar K2, and follow their coming-of-age stories.

The audition setting would explain the production team, mostly from variety shows: Directing are the PDs of Superstar K and Dancing 9, and the writers are from variety shows like Real Men and Music Bank, and the sitcom Nonstop.

Secondary cast members will include: idol Henry of Super Junior-M playing a cute and quirky genius musician, Park Kwang-sun of the band Ulala Session (winner of Superstar K3) as the sixteenth-generation only son of a house of generals, and Yoo Sung-eun (of Voice of Korea) as a shy singer with a complex about her looks.

Persevere, Gu Hae-ra plans to premiere in January.

Min Hyo-rin headlines Mnet music dramaby girlfridayMinHyorin_KwakShiYang1.jpg

Cable network Mnet’s upcoming music drama Persevere Gu Hae-ra has lined up its main cast, following the initial casting of supporting players earlier in the week. Singer-turned actress Min Hyo-rin (Gone With the Wind) has signed on to headline, and will be returning to her first drama since 2011’s Romance Town. I actually forgot that she was even a singer to begin with, since she’s mostly been an actress in film and television. She’s never truly wowed me in anything, but a teen drama about pop-star hopefuls seems like a natural choice for her, and I can see it being a good fit.

Starring opposite her will be relative newbie actor Kwak Shi-yang, who played the sweet half-brother loner in the weekend family drama Feel-Good Day. He only has one other credit to his name (the movie Night Flight), but I thought he was a whole head above the idol actors he was always sharing scenes with in Feel-Good Day. He earned this part through an open audition at Mnet, and beat the odds to become Persevere Gu Hae-ra’s leading man. Also joining the cast is Seo Min-ji, who played Kim Kang-woo’s ill-fated sister in Golden Cross. She’ll play the second lead, the daughter of an agency president who becomes a successful singer.
