Gong Yoo Confirmed for Kim Eun Sook Drama Mr. Sunshine Airing on tvN in November 2016

Posted on April 19, 2016 by ockoala

Yay! *happy dance* I was expecting this casting to go through but the lightning speed does bode well that both sides are super excited. Screenwriter Kim Eun Sook has her next leading man sewn up this week as A-list actor Gong Yoo has accepted her drama offer. The drama is called Mr. Sunshine and will air on cable network tvN in November of 2016. With another six months to go before it airs, I would hazard a guess that the show could be pre-produced much like Kim Eun Sook’s last mega hit Descendants of the Sun. No word yet on producing scheduling but Gong Yoo has met with Kim Eun Sook and accepted the offer after hearing her storyboard on Mr. Sunshine, which is rare as usually the first four scripts are provided for consideration before a top star would even consider agreeing to star. Gong Yoo’s rep confirmed that Gong Yoo was excited after hearing the story from Kim Eun Sook and had faith in her writing hence the optimistic acceptance.

The media is already buzzing about Gong Yoo finally getting to do a Kim Eun Sook drama, especially after he passed on Descendants of the Sun. He’s also getting comparisons to Song Joong Ki insofar as he’s primed to become the next big Kim Eun Sook male lead as all her dramas have elevated the male leads to new popular heights afterwards. Gong Yoo hasn’t had a drama hit in nearly 10 years, not since Coffee Prince in 2007, so my guy is long overdue for a popular drama resurgence. Just please give him a suitable and deserving female lead, Kim Eun Sook!

Article: [Exclusive] Kim Eun Sook x Gong Yoo's new drama will be named 'Mister Sunshine'

Source: E-Daily via Naver

1. [+3,051, -203] I'll admit her dramas are honestly third rate... just a copy of a bunch of nineties Hollywood works, but she has a knack for making male leads sound so charming with their lines! She's a scriptwriter who writes for high viewer ratings...

2. [+2,665, -85] Her plots are lacking but her lines are the best. She brings all her male leads to life... there's not one character that she puts to waste.

3. [+1,534, -82] I was so upset that he hasn't been in a drama since 'Big', I put all my trust in Kim scriptwriter-nim ㅠㅠ

4. [+877, -31] She's really hard at work lately, isn't she

5. [+236, -9] We just need a good female lead for it to be successful... Gong Yoo will flop with her if they pick someone bad..

6. [+230, -12] Other than her plot skills and stuff, Kim Eun Sook is so good at knowing what female viewers want to see. She knows exactly what makes our hearts flutter and she turns all her male leads in gods.

7. [+206, -14] Please pick a good female lead!! Not just a pretty face or an idol!!

8. [+169, -15] Wow, just took a look at Kim Eun Sook's drama history and she's just a god of viewer ratings. Lots of cringeworthy dramas but all her male leads serve crazy fantasies for female viewers.

I have a feeling it's gonna be Yoon Eun Hye...but let's see.

Hopefully this drama works for him. Its already been a decade since Coffee Prince

Gong Yoo confirmed for 'Descendants of the Sun' writer's next project!

By beansss    22 minutes ago    2,444    892    2

Director Yoon Ha Rim of Hwa & Dam Pictures, a drama and film production company, has stepped up to reveal some juicy, exclusive details about tvN's newest drama, written by 'Descendants of the Sun' writer Kim Eun Sook

 

SEE ALSO: Gong Yoo in talks to star in 'Descendants of the Sun' writer's next drama!

Previously, it was reported that actor Gong Yoo was looking over Kim Eun Sook's new piece with good intentions, and it looks like he's finally made a decision! On April 20, Kim Eun Sook revealed, "[Gong Yoo] is an actor I've always had high expectations of. While we haven't had an opportunity to work together in the past due to situation conflicts, I've always wanted to work on a romantic comedy piece with Gong Yoo. When I met up with Gong Yoo at a personal gathering, I saw what a luxurious actor he was, and became certain that he would be the best actor for the the lead character in 'Goblin'. I'm very thankful that he accepted the offer. It's going to be a fun project." 

 

Kim Eun Sook's new tvN drama, thus-far titled 'Goblin', will tell the odd story of a goblin and a grim reaper, who happen to begin working together to help the dead pass through to the next world. 'Goblin' will also be actor Gong Yoo's return to the small-screen in 4 years. 

 

'Goblin' starring the handsome Gong Yoo is set to air some time in November!

Gong Yoo confirms writer Kim Eun-sook’s fantasy drama Goblin

by girlfriday | April 20, 2016 | 27 Comments
 

GongYoo2.jpg

The new drama from Descended From the Sun writer Kim Eun-sook finally has a working title, a story, a timeslot, and a leading man: Gong Yoo (A Man and a Woman, Big) has signed on to headline, and the series is due to air on tvN in November, as expected. It’s called Goblin, and it’ll be a fantasy drama about a goblin and a reaper who start living together (it sounds a little like tvN’s other supernatural drama about a ghost and an exorcist becoming roomies).

Annyeong @Go Seung Ji thanks for creating this page. I love Gong Yoo since Hello Teacher with Gong Hyo Jin. That's when both leads are my fave.

Gong Yoo Confirmed as Lead in “Descendants of the Sun” Writer’s Next Drama About Goblins

Gong Yoo Confirmed as Lead in “Descendants of the Sun” Writer’s Next Drama About Goblins

It was previously announced that actor Gong Yoo is considering working with writer Kim Eun Sook, who wrote “Descendants of the Sun,” and now the production company in charge of her next drama, “Goblin” (working title), has confirmed that the lead character will be played by Gong Yoo.

Kim Eun Sook has written many hit dramas, such as “Lovers in Paris,” “Lovers in Prague,” “On Air,” “Secret Garden,” “A Gentleman’s Dignity,” “Heirs,” and “Descendants of the Sun.”

Since Gong Yoo has been focused solely on filming movies for the past few years, the news of him joining Kim Eun Sook’s drama, which will be his return to the small screen for the first time in four years, has many fans excited.

Yoon Ha Rim, the CEO of Hwa and Dam Pictures, which is producing the drama, stated, “We have been preparing to make this drama for three years, even before ‘Descendants of the Sun’ was made. The focus of the drama will be on goblins, which is a very common character in traditional folktales but has not been the main topic for dramas yet. However, with the help of Kim Eun Sook’s writing talent in telling a romance story, this drama is bound to be another one of Kim Eun Sook’s representative romantic comedies.”

Yoon Ha Rim continued, “‘Goblin’ will start filming once the casting is finished for the core characters. I am confident that this will be a new type of drama for the viewers. Please look forward to it.”

Regarding the reason behind casting Gong Yoo as the main character, writer Kim Eun Sook stated, “I’ve always looked forward to working with him. His schedule didn’t work out so the chance of working together has always been pushed back, but I’ve wanted to work with him for a romantic comedy. I realized that he was a wonderful actor after coincidentally meeting him and talking to him, and I became more certain that he was the one who will best express the main character for ‘Goblin.’ I am thankful that he accepted our offer. I think it will be a fun experience.”

Meanwhile, this drama is about a goblin, who needs a human bride in order to end his immortal life, and a grim reaper, who suffers from amnesia. They somehow end up meeting and living together, whether by fate or by a curse, and the drama follows the strange, mysterious, sad, but beautiful daily lives of those who see off the souls of the dead.

“Goblin” will start airing in November on tvN, and it is one of the most anticipated dramas for the second half of 2016.

We started the year with DOTS and if this comes through 2016 will be ending on a high note... Gong Yoo certainly kept us waiting didnt he!! And the fact that it is TVN makes me feel hopeful... Their dramas are always refreshing and different!! Bring it on!!

It will be hard to find a good actress to play in this drama since many of them already join another drama project (usually actress/actor will only have one drama project a year) but still they have to find a good one so this drama will not be another failure as Gong Yoo last project, Big.

 

It will be really great if it's Gong Hyo Jin. I saw them once in the CF and they look good together. But since she has another project that will air around the same time with this drama so it will be almost impossible collaboration.

Han Ji Min will be a good choice. Since she's good at acting and also beautiful. She's good in romantic comedy drama so it will really fun to watch her play another role like Rooftop Prince.

Song Ji Hyo is not a bad choice too. She has viewer's heart and gain popularity (based on ratings) in TVN Emergency Couple so I think another role in romantic comedy drama with TVN is a good choice for her because she's good at this genre.

Shin Se Kyung? No please let her rest. She has two dramas last year with one of them is 50 episodes drama so it must tiring for her.

Ha Ji Won. No need to say. One of the best actress in Korea. She has many hit dramas. But to play a romantic comedy drama well I am not too sure. Her last drama is also a failure so I hope she can gain people trust again with this drama.

WOW KES work very hard this year... 2 dramas airing in the same year. Read it some where that this will be face to face battle with drama that written by You Who Came From Another Star who also already courted LMH as the leading man and Jun Ji Hyun is in talk for the leading lady. 

We already have GY in her so I hope KES will choose the leading lady that will match the battle. And please don't choose idol to be it... though I am sure KES will never do that.... 

YEH... is one of my favourite though I failed to love her latest drama MHIYD

Soo Ae.... always love her 

KTH.... Yong Pal still lingered in my memory coz its good

Best wish for the leading lady choosen next... another anticipated drama to close this year :)
