Been off soompi for more than 2 years but had to come back with news of this drama :) . I don't remember my old password so had to create a new one. If there's any Hyuk fans from long time ago it's me o-cha. 
Yay! Finally a confirmation that both of them are doing the drama. I still have fond memories of Success Story of A Bright Girl. 
So wait...are the character names Lee Gun and Kim Mi Young or Lee Hyun Soo and Kang Yoon Kyung? I think DC Jang Hyuk is going by Lee Hyun Soo...but of course that can still change....

Another unnecessarily dragged on drama (for ratings). I like the first episode even though it was draggy but then they killed my "like" for it. Let's see what Korea does with this story. But it's quite an outdated story though (pregnancy leading to a forced marriage).

True the storyline seems dated so hopefully the 2 writers (Joo Chan Ok and Jo Jin Gook) can breathe a new life to this adaptation. I adore the drama Soulmate so I have some faith on Jo Jin Gook.

Choi Jin Hyuk has finally decided on his next project.

According to multiple broadcasting affiliates, Choi Jin Hyuk has confirmed to star in MBC’s upcoming drama Fated to Love You.

Jang Hyeok and Jang Nara to co-star in "Fated to Love You"
Actor Jang Hyeok and actress Jang Nara are acting together for the first time in 12 years.
They have been cast for the new MBC drama "Fated to Love You".
"Fated to Love You" is a Taiwanese original. It's a romantic comedy about a woman who has nothing but kindness and a man who is at risk of losing his heirloom by getting into a marriage which they both don't want.
Jang Nara takes on the role of the woman who has no attraction, no boyfriend and no wealth but has an opportunity to go on a luxurious trip.
"Fated to Love You" is produced by Lee Dong-yoon and written by Jo Jin-gook.
Jang Hyeok and Jang Nara starred in the 2002 drama "The Successful Story Of A Bright Girl" which holds the record of 42.6%.
Meanwhile, MBC drama "Fated to Love You" will be broadcasted after "A New Leaf".
Fictional couple reunites after 12 years

Actors Jang Hyeok and Jang Nara will rendezvous after 12 years apart, on the upcoming MBC drama "Fated to Love You".
Yesterday, MBC announced through a press release that the famous on-screen couple will appear in its new rom-com. 
"Fated to Love You" is based on the 2008 Taiwanese drama with the same title and follows the love story of Lee Geon and Kim Mi-young, who do not have anything in common. 
Born to a well-to-do family, Lee Geon (played by Jang Hyeok) is an egocentric man faced with pressure from his parents to get married early. Mi-young is a girl-next-door character who gets entangled in a conflict with Jang Hyeok after winning a ticket to travel abroad.
Korean drama fans showed an interest in the news because Jang and Hyeok's 2002 drama, "The Successful Story Of A Bright Girl", enjoyed incredibly high viewer ratings of 42.6 percent.
MBC added that the drama will be directed by Lee Dong-yoon, who was behind the 2011 hit drama series "The Greatest Love" featuring Kong Hyo-jin and Cha Seung-won. 
The exact air date for the series has not yet been confirmed.

Thank you Drama God! So happy and excited for 2014 caused all my favourite OTPs are coming back again with
Lee Jun Ki & Nam Sang Mi (in Joseon Gunman) and now Jang Hyuk & Jang Na Ra  & Choi Jin Hyuk (my latest crush)...*squeal*... :bz


OMG! I will definitely be blessed with *Happy Dilemmas* to  ship which Hyukies with Nara - Jang Hyuk with Nara or Jin Hyuk with Nara..why oh why, my 2 Hyukies are giving me happy dilemmas...oh my poor shippy heart?!  :-SS  ;):D

I can't believe that it had been almost a decade ago I've shipped Jang Hyuk & Nara in *The Successful Story of a Bright Girl*..oh that sounded pretty old!  Loved their cute & sweet chemistry in Bright Girl and always hoping they'll have the chance to work again ! Luckily, fans don't even have to photoshop their image together we just need to dig up their old photo in those Bright Girl's days...really good old days!    See I don't have to PS them together... 

OMG They are really young then!

Ahhhhhhhhh i expect to have yet again a big crush on Chae Jin Hyuk...if he accept the role his character in the original was such a awesome guy,prepare yourselves to cry for himThis cast gets better and better,quite curious how the korean writers will deal with the plot and the whole baby thing knowing that they aren't sooo liberal as taiwanease dramas are in many respects also in relationship view...and i'm also expecting to see how Jang Hyuk will bring to life Eathen Ruan character that didn't really know about love and had this childish side that made him see things more immature than what this character will have to be with the character age....If we think about it Chae Jin Hyuk image goes better with the lead character but strangly i want to see how will they modele the character for Jang Hyuk,so i'm keeping fingers crossed it will be goodeven so they have big shoes to feel in respect of this drama and actors but i also think they could take this premise and give it's own life and make the characters their own so i hope it will be good...

I haven't watched the Tw version yet, but I am completely on board for this project now that Choi Jin Hyuk has signed up for the second lead. I know this journey is going to end in heartbreak for his character, but I will be watching this one until the end. Do you think the writers could give him a consolation prize second lead female to ease his heartache when he isn't the one she chooses. I don't want to see him end up all alone.

Also, aren't the leads kind of short, isn't he going to tower over them?

Like so many of you, I look forward to seeing what kind of changes to the plot the writer/director make to this storyline.

totally love Jang Nara and Jang Hyuk. but I fear for the first male lead character.
In TW version, Ji Cun Xi was a total jerk, childish, pompous, mean bastard but we tend to forgive him and let it slide because he was still young, immature and just about to learn about life from Xin Yi and her family. He then changed to be a better man in second half of the series.  So how can a character pushing 40 (Jang Hyuk) pull off all this? Ethan Ruan pulled it off brilliantly and he was 26, just the right age boy turning into man when all can be forgiven :P .
but korean version might change a bit.. so yeah.. i'll keep tab because did i mention i love Jang Hyuk ang Jang Nara? 
ps: Fated to Love You IS brilliant. Not just because of its ridiculous mega ratings but how it affects millions around the world. Wall Street Journal wrote about it once. I guess if you are used to the language and culture you tend to understand it better and love it more.  I remember being part of the craze in 2008 and it was a lot of fun.. all the laughs and tears.. i still rewatch it from time to time and it still gives me the same effect like it did 6 years ago.. we are soo gonna experience second lead syndrome because the second male character is an angel  :)

Popping by because i think JH and CJH are great at what they do. But I just read the plot summary for the Taiwanese version..... And omg. I don't know if I can take another second lead syndrome thing. Seriously. :-S it is NOT good for the heart!

@Miky88‌ yes I share your same hope too - that they give it an update, and make the characters their own. I was a bit disappointed with the movie remake Cold Eyes because they used such similar characters it was hard not to compare. I mean, simon Yam was great. Hard to beat him. But Jung Woo Sung was flipping awesome. Totally owned it. I hope JH and CJH will be able to own the characters here too!
