Hwang Jung Eum turns down role in "Monster"
orionight January 21, 2016

Hwang Jung Eum Turns Down Role in “Monster”

Sorry, Hwang Jung Eum fans – the actress has decided not to participate in MBC‘s upcoming drama “Monster.”

Despite initial reports that Hwang Jung Eum was indeed considering the role, her agency C-JeS Entertainment stated on January 21, “From the beginning, it was never confirmed that Hwang Jung Eum would be cast in ‘Monster.’ She was only in talks.”

Hwang Jung Eum was up for the role of the lead heroine. For now, it seems like she will be focusing on her upcoming wedding before taking on any more drama roles.

Meanwhile, while Seo Kang Joon was also considering a part in the drama, the role of the lead male went to Kang Ji Hwan. “Monster” is set to air after “Glamorous Temptation” wraps up in April.

MBC melo Monster secures Kang Ji-hwan to headline
by javabeans | January 21, 2016

kangjihwan_369.jpg

Ah, this casting makes more sense: Kang Ji-hwan (Big Man) is now confirmed as the leading man in MBC’s upcoming 50-episode melodrama Monster (formerly titled Tyrant), while relative newcomer Seo Kang-joon (Cheese in the Trap) is no longer in consideration for the show. It seemed so strange to have a young rookie like Seo being courted to lead a big show like this, particularly since it covers a lot of ground and spans 20 years and requires an actor with a bit more gravitas, and he’s not there yet.

The story of Monster starts during the IMF crisis in the late ’90s and tells “the revenge story of one man sacrificed by an avaricious den of demons.” He loses his parents at a young age and almost dies, and takes on a new life and name in pursuing his revenge, vowing to expose the ugly true faces of the elite; along the way, he finds a love that’s like “a flower bud growing in a mud pit.” Recently cast to play the hero in his youth is idol Lee Ki-kwang (Mrs. Cop), while Lee Yeol-eum (Village: Secret of Achiara) will play the younger heroine.

Kang Ji-hwan seems a natural choice when you consider he’s worked with this writer before in the drama Incarnation of Money (writer Jang Young-chul also did Giant and Empress Ki), and while I miss Kang in comedy (he’s got great wacky comic timing), he’s adept at serious dramatic stuff as well and I can readily picture him in a meaty story like this. (It probably means he won’t be taking My Little Baby, a different MBC drama about a cop who’s suddenly saddled with a baby to take care of.)

The show is still searching for a leading lady with Hwang Jung-eum (She Was Pretty) officially out as well, and while I like Hwang, I’m fine with her leaving because she and Kang Ji-hwan were in Incarnation of Money together and they don’t need to reteam quite so soon. I know the back-to-back reunion worked for her and Ji Sung, but fresh partnerships are a welcome thing, and I’ll be curious to see which actress ends up with the role.

I am glad to hear of Lee El (My Beautiful Bride) taking on a supporting role as an arms lobbyist, a character described as a strong woman who makes her presence felt, which is pretty much what I always expect Lee El to deliver. The lady has presence. The bulk of the supporting cast has been confirmed, and includes Park Young-kyu, Lee Deok-hwa, Jung Bo-seok, Kim Bo-yeon, and Jung Woong-in.

Monster is set to follow Monday-Tuesday drama Dazzling Temptation.

Lee Ki-kwang, Lee Yeol-eum to play leads’ teen years in MBC’s Monster

by girlfriday | January 20, 2016
LeeKiKwang_LeeYeolEum1.jpg

Wait, what? You’re going to cast Lee Ki-kwang, born in 1990, as the teenage version of Seo Kang-joon, born in 1993? I’m no math expert, but that seems wrong. MBC’s new Monday-Tuesday drama Monster still hasn’t confirmed its leads — offers are out to Hwang Jung-eum (She Was Pretty) and Seo Kang-joon (Cheese in the Trap) to headline — but has cast childhood counterparts for them in Lee Ki-kwang (Mrs. Cop) and Lee Yeol-eum (Village: Secret of Achiara).

 

I’m honestly vexed as to why on earth you would bother casting someone older than the actor you’re courting to play the hero, to play him younger. The only thing I can think is that Seo Kang-joon is miscast in the role… But he was cast first… I don’t get it. My head hurts.

The series comes from hit writer Jang Young-chul of Empress Ki, Incarnation of Money, History of the Salaryman, and Giant, which sets expectations pretty high. I did think they would cast an older actor for the 50-episode epic about a man’s gripping revenge story against the rich and powerful. For one, the story spans 20 years, beginning with the IMF crisis in 1997 to the present day, and he’s the main character who faces off against society’s 0.001% and overcomes all sorts of adversity in order to reveal their true faces to the world.

In any case, Lee Ki-kwang and Lee Yeol-eum are confirmed, math be damned. They’ll open the series as the leading characters in their high school years, which will last about 4 episodes. Aside from the backwards age thing, I can certainly see them in the roles — Lee Ki-kwang still has a baby face and Lee Yeol-eum is always in a high school uniform anyway. Though casting her immediately makes me think Hwang Jung-eum’s character will be a mean girl in high school.

Monster will follow Monday-Tuesday drama Dazzling Temptation in April.

Hello chingu! ;) 

Yoon Jung Hee???????? YES!!! We make a request to the production of drama :) :P

I've seen all the dramas Kang Ji-hwan, he is an excellent actor, only drama I did not passionately far was Big Man, because I did not like the female lead, this girl is very bland and I hate her character in drama Secret

If ever i see YJH-KJH as a couple in the drama, i'll be on the seven heaven...for appearences, both are slim and tall, as for acting department...they're great :heart::heart:

Hope PD-nim and SW-nim will answer our prayers... :blush:

Do you mean Lee da hee ???

My favourite KJH's dramas are Capital Scandal and Incaration of Money... :wub::wub:

I agree with you, They matched well physically because they have the proper height. In addition KJH will best fit a female actress as YJH, when the lead actress is unfeminine or athletic seems to me they do not do much chemistry as a couple, although as friends or partners (eg in the drama Hong Gil Dong).

Exactly, Lee Da Hee :)

Be Strong Geum Soon, Lie to Me and Incarnation of Money, are my favorites.

I would recommend the film Runway Cop, is fun
