Ji Hyun Woo confirmed for new drama 'Trot Lovers', his first production since military discharge


After having been discharged from military service for only a day, Ji Hyun Woo has already been confirmed to star in the upcoming KBS 2TV Mon-Tues drama 'Trot Lovers'!

SEE ALSO: Ji Hyun Woo officially discharged from military service

The drama's reps stated on the 7th, "Ji Hyun Woo has been confirmed to play the role of the best artist Jang Jun Hyun."

The drama's production company rep stated, "As much as Ji Hyun Woo is the perfect synchronization of his character Jang Jun Hyun who can act, sing, and has the visuals, he is an actor who is one with his character... After completing his military service, Ji Hyun Woo's affection and sincerity for his first drama in two years is special." His role will be of a top musician who seemingly has it all but is very arrogant and haughty.

'Trot Lovers' is a romantic comedy about Choi Choon Hee, a woman in her twenties who has a talent for singing trot, and her meeting with Jang Jun Hyun, a top musician who helps her to become a trot singer.

IU is also in consideration to join Ji Hyun Woo in 'Trot Lovers' which is set to follow 'Big Man' this June!

"Trot Lovers" is lining up an impressive cast. And according to KBS, the latest addition is actor Shin Sung Rok, whorecently  attracted interest when he played the evil Lee Jae Kyung in "You Who Came From The Stars."

Although some viewers only know him as Park Hae Jin's evil older brother, Shin Sung Rok can sing and dance. He is a ten-year veteran of musicals and films. In "Trot Lovers," he will play a charming businessman named Cho Geun Woo, who takes over his father's talent agency.

According to a representative of the "Trot Lovers" production company, Shin Sung Rok will surprise viewers by presenting a whole new side of himself when he plays Cho Geun Woo


"Trot Lovers" will also star actor Ji Hyun Woo in his first drama after finishing his two-year military duty. The actor had barely finished starring as a time-traveling nobleman in "Queen Inhyun's Man" when he enlisted and he was besieged with drama offers before his two years was up.

Barely a day after he finished his tour of duty, he agreed to be in "Trot Lovers." He will play Jang Joon Hyun, a musician who is a genius and arrogant enough to know as much.

The director Lee Jae Sang wanted Ji Hyun Woo for the role because the actor can act and sing and he also looks the part. But even more importantly he's an actor who is known for becoming one with his character. And Ji Hyun Woo wanted the part as much as the director wanted to cast him.

"After completing his military service, Ji Hyun Woo's affection for the role is special," said a representative of the drama's production company.

One more role is yet to be cast iand it's the part of Choi Choon Hee, the woman who Shin Sung Rok and Ji Hyun Woo will fight for. She's a young woman with a talent for trot and she turns to Ji Hyun Woo to help her become a great trot singer. Cho Geun Woo will sign her to his agency

IU, last seen in "Pretty Man" has been considering the role. A production company representative told Ilgan Sports that she received the offer and that there is a good chance she will be cast.

"IU played the character of a female high school student with singing ability in 'Dream High.' The character suits her."

But KBS said that she is not the only actress that has received a script.

What is trot, you may well ask? Trot or teuroteu is a genre of Korean pop music with a distinctive background rhythm. It first became popular in the early 1900s during the time Japan ruled Korea, but has Japanese, Western and Korean musical elements. The name is short for foxtrot, a ballroom dance.

What do you think about the cast for this new drama? Let us know.

The drama will follow "Big Man" in June.

Son Ho Jun will become Ji Hyun Woo’s right-hand man.

Seol Tae Song is genius superstar Jang Joong Hyun’s manager, who dreams of becoming a trot singer. Taking his name from the last names of three trot singers, Seol Woon Do, Tae Jin Ah and Song Dae Kwan, becoming a trot singer is the only and the most earnest dream of Seol Tae Song.


Having acted in dramas Reply 1994 and The Full Sun, Son Ho Jun will show his comic actions once again through this new drama. 

An affiliate of Trot Lovers said, “On top of his good looks and acting ability, Son Ho Jun is full of talents. Please show your anticipation for Son Ho Jun acting as Sol Tae Song, who will bring entertainment to the small screen along with Ji Hyun Woo.”

Shin Sung-rok to join ‘Lover of Trot’

May 14,2014article.aspx?aid=29890760


Shin Sung-rok
Actor Shin Sung-rok will appear in a romantic-comedy drama on KBS this June.

According to his agency, HB Entertainment, yesterday, Shin decided to join the KBS “Lover of Trot” team playing a businessman named Jo Geun-woo.

Though he has been in the industry for more than a decade, only recently has he risen to prominence. He showed an outstanding portrayal of a psychopathic character in the SBS drama “My Love from the Star,” in which he acted with Jun Ji-hyun and Kim Soo-hyun.

“In the new series, Shin will turn into a cynical businessman who runs an entertainment company,” an agency official said to local media. “But the character is also outgoing and humorous at the same time, so viewers will be able to take a look at a different persona.”

Joining Shin is actor Ji Hyun-woo, who was discharged from the Korean Army at the beginning of the month. 

“We believe that Shin can create synergy with his new character in the drama, as he has established himself as a veteran performer on the musical stage for the past few years,” said the broadcaster.

The actor is currently starring in the musical “Le Roi Soleil” at the Blue Square in central Seoul.

Trot Lovers courts Jung Eun-ji, Sohn Ho-joonby girlfriday | May 14, 2014 | 66 Comments


Yay, Jung Eun-ji (That Winter The Wind Blows, Answer Me 1997) would make a perfect heroine for Trot Lovers, the new KBS summer rom-com about a wannabe trot singer who breaks into the biz. Funny story: when rumors surfaced and quickly died about IU being courted for the role, javabeans and I sat around wondering who they’d cast next, and I swear the words out of her mouth were, “It has to be Jung Eun-ji. Who else is there?” Turns out JB has a future in fortunetelling, because now the offer is out to Jung Eun-ji to star. Next, we ask JB for lotto picks!

Ji Hyun-woo (Queen Inhyun’s Man) is already a lock for the leading man, a genius superstar songwriter who will turn the no-name talented heroine into a star. He turns his nose up at low-brow trot music, but the heroine can’t live without trot. It’s a quirky trait to be sure, and the role calls for a young twentysomething singer with a strong voice in any genre, hence the very limited pool of actresses who meet the qualifications. Jung Eun-ji is best when bubbly and comedic, and she and Ji Hyun-woo should make for an adorable pair.

Also joining the cast is Sohn Ho-joon (Full Sun, Answer Me 1994), in a semi-Answer Mereunion of sorts. He’ll be playing Ji Hyun-woo’s manager, and his character also dreams of being a trot singer someday. I’m excited that he’s going back to comedy; Jung Eun-ji too because because they’re both really funny. They each followed up their Answer Mestints with somber dramas, so it makes me happy that they’ll be in a rom-com where they get to be geeky over something like trot. It seems perfectly fitting somehow, like starring in throwback dramas makes throwback music right up their alley.

Trot Lovers follows Big Man in June.
