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

How come i forget about " Be Strong Geum Soon ??? Yes, i like that drama too...i even have its DVD for my collection... :wub::wub:

For KJH's movie, i like " My Girlfriend is Secret Agent "... :blush:

Whats make me interested to this drama is the supporting actors and SW...we have Lee doek hwa and Jung bo suk, its like " Giant " reunion... :heart::heart:

Oh my, I am so looking forward to this drama. Kang Ji Hwan was an excellent choice for this drama. I so loved him in incarnation of money. He can do funny and serious in one drama. He was also good in Hong Gil Dong. That was my introduction to this most talented actor. @Morelia thank  you for the recommendations gonna watch Runway Cop then. Can't wait

MBC side: "Monster", the title of the follow-up to "Glamorous Temptation" has been finalized
translated by Pechumori
Jan. 29, 2016

The title of the new drama for MBC which is "Monster" has been confirmed.

On the afternoon of Jan. 29, officials of MBC told Newsen that the follow-up drama to "Glamorous Temptation", which is using the working title "Monster" (originally known as "Tyrant") has also been decided to be its final title.

"Monster" has gathered attraction as a come-back project of actor Kang Ji Hwan. Kang Ji Hwan is the male lead in "Monster" while the casting of the heroine is currently under progress.

Aside from Kang Ji Hwan, "Monster" boasts of an all-star cast of best performers that includes Park Young Gyu, Lee Duk Hwa, Jung Bo Suk, Kim Bo Yeon, Jung Woong In, Kim Hye Eun, Lee El, Jin Tae Hyun, and Go Yoon. Lee Ki Kwang from the group "Beast" and Lee Yeol Eum will play the role of the younger versions of the male and female leads.

"Monster" will be directed by PD Joo Seong Woo ("The Legendary Witch", "A Hundred Year's Inheritance" and "Hooray for Love") and screenplay by writers Jang Yeong Cheol and Jeong Kyeong Soon ("Empress Qi", "History of a Salaryman", "Giant" and "Incarnation of Money"). It depicts the story of a man who got caught in a gruesome revenge from the absurd behaviour of Korean society's privileged 0.001% and lost everything. It is also a beautiful love story.

Oh wow, my fave Gaksital actor Park Ki Woong is joining the production ! Time flies , as his last drama that  was aired was Full House 2 (tho Bridal Mask was his last drama filming) which I also enjoyed. He can pull the angst and serious appeal for sure. He was truly impressive in Gaksital.

MBC’s Monster adds Park Ki-woong, Jo Boa as spoiled chaebols
by javabeans | February 1, 2016

joboa_21.jpg

Oh great, now I HAVE to watch Monster. I mean, yay I have to watch Monster? I’m not even sure anymore. (It isn’t that it sounds bad; it’s that this is one of those serious, sprawling 50-episode dramas, and man, those take work.)

But with Kang Ji-hwan (Incarnation of Money, Big Man) headlining the series and now Park Ki-woong (Gaksitaaaaal) choosing it as his army comeback drama, who am I to fight it? I’ll just block off April through September on my calendar and settle in for the long haul…

Monster, which comes to us from the writer team (Jang Young-chul, Jung Kyung-soon) who gave us Empress Ki, Incarnation of Money, and History of a Salaryman, kicks off in the late ’90s after the IMF crisis hits, and follows a man who sets out for revenge against society’s top 0.001%, those privileged movers and shakers with all the power. I’m guessing those are the people responsible for the hero’s early tragedy, which kill both his parents and almost him as well. He comes back with a vengeance, for vengeance, and falls in love along the way. The drama has yet to secure a heroine after initially courting Hwang Jung-eum, who didn’t sign on, but is likely to do so soon. We hope.

Park Ki-woong, who will be discharged from military service on February 7, will play the youngest son of a chaebol group chairman who turns increasingly wild and violent. He’s gonna be so good at that and it’ll probably break my heart because I love him. Just don’t go full Namgoong Min on me, okay? I’m not sure I’ll be ready for that much affluenza-induced brutality so soon.

Park’s character is cast aside by his family because he’s born to a concubine (er, I suppose that just means non-wife in this day and age, but chaebol clans do tend to mimic royalty), and he grows up with his mother in America. He comes back and successfully reclaims his position, evicting the opposition that had cut him out, and then transforms into a cold-hearted, dissipated tyrant. Hm, so perhaps he’s the one the former title Tyrant referred to, though it’s entirely possible that with so many corrupt chaebols running around, it could be any of a number of them.

Jo Boa (Missing Noir M), meanwhile, is currently in talks (though not yet finalized) to play the chaebol chairman’s daughter. She’s fussy and rather vain, but falls for Kang Ji-hwan’s charm and complicates his loveline with the heroine, making for a tangled love triangle. (Something tells me she’ll be doing most of the tangling, as the lovelorn one who happens to wield lots of money and privilege.) I like Jo Boa more in bubbly, sweet roles (see: Surplus Princess), but perhaps she can make this potentially difficult-to-like character more approachable, the way Jung So-min did in Bad Guy.

Monster will follow Dazzling Temptation as MBC’s next Monday-Tuesday drama, premiering in April.

Anyway, checking in to the thread that I'm sure I'll be camping in until...September?  :D

Hello @roweina78, long time no chat! We meet again in another KJH drama. I've never handled a 50 eps. drama before. Hope I can endure it. :D   Fighting!!!

Maybe they asked KJH to recommend some actresses, and he came up with those he had good chemistry with.

Park Ki Woong Joins Kang Ji Hwan in 'Monster - 2016'
BY Julie Jones | Feb 02, 2016

Park Ki Woong

Park Ki Woong has announced that he will join Kang Ji Hwan in the upcoming MBC drama "Monster - 2016."

The actor's agency, Haewadal Entertainment, announced the decision on February 1. It will be Park's first leading drama role since playing a Japanese officer in the KBS historical drama "Bridal Mask" with co-star Joo Won and an idol group member in the comedy "Full House Take 2."

Park Ki Woong did have a cameo in "The Good Doctor," also with former co-star Joo Won, and was seen in two films since starting his 2014 tour of military duty, the 2014 "Mad Sad Bad" and the 2015 Kim Ki Duk production "Made in China." But Park's mandatory military duty as a conscripted policeman did keep him away from dramaland.

In "Monster - 2016," Park will play Do Geon Woo, the son of a company CEO and his mistress. His birthright will bring him into direct conflict with the character that Kang Ji Hwan plays. Kang plays Kang Ki Tan, a man who lost his parents when he was little. He wants to take revenge against the wealthy and careless individuals who ruined his life and caused him to suffer.

Kang Ji Hwan's role in the drama was reportedly offered to Joo Won, which would have given the actors a third chance to work together, but Joo ultimately turned it down. Seo Kang Joon also reportedly turned down the role, choosing instead to appear in the Korean remake of "Entourage."

Hwang Jung Eum was previously offered the leading female role in this drama but ultimately declined to focus on her upcoming wedding at the end of February.

Jang Young Chul, who wrote "Empress Ki," "History of the Salaryman," "Giant" and "Incarnation of Money," is writing the screenplay. Joo Sang Woo, who directed "Legendary Witches" and "One Hundred Years Inheritance," is directing 'Monster - 2016."

The 50-episode "Monster," previously titled "Tyrant," will air on Mondays and Tuesdays in April after the end of "Glamorous Temptation."

Oh, I just remembered that I had a question about the title.  Titles?  I guess it's been through several already... 

The English title would still be Monster either way, but have they officially decided to go with 괴물 for the Korean title instead of just 몬스터?  I know it was 몬스터 for a while (as of the writing of this, at least), but now everything seems to be referring to it as 괴물.  Just curious if anyone knows for sure. :)

Was looking at the director's work yesterday, and realized that he and PKW have worked together before - in 2010's Golden Fish.  Which I did not finish, haha.  And...they've spelled his name wrong in this article.  It's Joo Sung Woo

about the title, yes, in the recent Korean news, they used a different hangul word, which still means monster or the host, which is the title of a Korean movie.
