Actress Nam Ji Hyun, who did a terrific job as the teenage version of main lead Deokman in 'Queen Seon Deok', sure is a lucky gal as she will be forming a love triangle with ZE:A'sHyungsik and Seo Kang Jun in new KBS 2TV weekend drama, 'What's With This Family'!
Hyungsik will be playing the hopeless younger brother, Cha Dal Bong, of the female lead played by Kim Hyun Joo. Although troublesome to the family, he is good-natured and compassionate. Hyungsik said, "More than anything, I am really happy that I get to act with good senior actors.  I am thinking of doing my best as an actor.  I thank the director and writer for giving me a role with gravitas, and as much as I feel burdened, I feel an equally huge ambition to do well."

Thank you for displaying a short notice about an existent thread. I successfully merged the threads and reopened it's original content as we have finally more than three official actors/actresses signed for this drama. I'm pretty excited for this show as the enlisted cast might give a refreshing blend of family-themed series during the weekend.

I am so torn with this upcoming drama because there are many actors that i like and the plot sound entertaining..totally happy that Hyungsik is in it because i like him a lot,still pine over his wasted potential from Heirs..Totally in with the trio of young cast...fell in love with Nam Ji Hyun in Angel Eyes and i like Kang Joonie a lot as well but what turnes me off is teh writer...the one who gave me as it might sound funny one of the most traumatic experience while watching her drama Gu Family Book,she destroyed her own drama in 2 episodes and who saw it knows why i say it,in so many levels...many of us who were totally invested in that story were traumatized by it...so i promised myself i won't ever see another show from her but i totally love the cast..man,heaven it's not fair,not fair!!!still mad at her even now because i consider she really disrespected us till the end not to mention her poor hero and the lack of a moral at the end of the story...
ahhh,what a drama lover must do ,ahhhhhhh!!!!!!!!!!still for this cast i'll give it a try but i'll keep my interst low not to suffer again

It's a bit weird I haven't found an article for Yoo Dong Geun except the April 30th one, it says something like Nam Ji Hyun, Hyungsik and Yoo Dong Geun likely to be cast in the drama. If confirmed, Hyungsik and Nam Ji Hyun will be one of the leading couples of the show. So is it safe to assume Yoo Dong Geun will be part of the series as of today?

@Hanyeoun, yes.. He is showing on the drama cast in both Hancinema and AsianWiki.

Yoo Dong-Geun is also mentioned in this article about Yoon Park from a couple of days ago, actually from Hancinema

Yoon Park in weekend drama "This Is Family"


Actor Yoon Park is starring in the new KBS 2TV drama "This Is Family".

This drama is about a father who attempts to reform his children by suggesting the 'Undutiful Child Case'. This drama delivers the message of "thinking dearly of the family that we take advantage of", starring Yoo Dong-geun, Kim Hyeon-joo and Hyung Sik.

Yoon Park takes on the role of Cha Kang-sim's (Kim Hyeon-joo) brother and stomach cancer specialist Cha Kang-jae. Kang-jae is a conceited and cold character who doesn't have any other interest besides medical studies.

Yoon Park has starred in "Good Doctor", "Give Love Away" and others as a cute, young man.

Yoon Park says, "I am happy to be working with such good people and I am preparing hard for my character".

"This Is Family" starts on the 16th after "Very Good Times".

Son Dam Bi also confirmed for drama 'What's With This Family'
It was previously revealed that there will be a love triangle in upcoming KBS 2TV weekend drama 'What's With This Family' among Hyungsik, actress Nam Ji Hyun, and Seo Kang Jun. Now, singer Son Dam Bi will be putting down the mic to resume her acting career as she has also been cast in the program!

Within the drama, Son Dam Bi plays Kwon Hyo Jin, the wife of Cha Gang Jae (played by Yoon Park), who is the younger brother of the elegant and intellectual food stylist and female protagonist, Cha Kang Shim (played by Kim Hyun Joo).  Her character never faced hardships as the daughter of a hospital director until she marries Cha Gang Jae on her father's wishes and has to deal with her meddlesome mother, causing her to declare independence and fight unsupported for her love life and happiness.
Son Dam Bi said, "It has been two years since I got to greet people in a drama.  It has been a long time since I was in a production, so I'm nervous, but I am preparing for everything with diligence."
The drama will be replacing 'Very Good Days' on August 16!

Wow, Park Hyungsik! I like him in Sirius and Nine. Heirs is just a waste of his time. I find him quite a decent idol actor and i think he has potential to do well. I love him even more after i watch Real Men. I am so glad he is finally able to nail a more important role this time. A love triangle. Interesting. I hope he has good chemistry with Nam Ji Hyun.I am torn as i like the cast and the setting of the drama seems interesting. But i have mixed feelings because of the writer. I like Hotelier but I am not a fan of Baker King or Gu Family Book. I think i will still watch it for the cast.
