I know starcrystal of HYJ's soompi thread (and Ria of se7enth heaven) wouldn't mind me re-posting the article here:

Posted January 21, 2008

Heo Lee Jae is back in a television drama after a year.


After starring in last year's "Goong S," Heo is going to be back in the KBS Monday-Tuesday drama "Single Papa in Love" as a medicine student who falls in love with the character of Oh Ji Ho. Oh plays the role of a single parent with a 7-year-old son and who works as a pest exterminator during the day and a combative sport player at night.

Heo plays as a surgeon's only daughter, who lost her mother when she was only 6 years old. Although she was solely raised by her father, she grew up to be an optimistic and transparent (?) lady.

"Heo Lee Jae looks pure, refreshing and charming but she is also someone who can express well sadness and pain," explained Lemon Rain, the production company in charge of the drama.

Sung Yun looks a lot like Kim Tae Hee.. except younger.. except KTH is really younger in real life.. but KTH still looks better.

Good thing she wasn't the lead though.

They all look miscast.. I don't see chemistry with any of them, even between father and son.. it just seems like they got 4 random people together for a picture.
