Are JTBC kidding me?

The package is supposed to air in October/Nov after Age of Youth 2, and now instead I see news of this drama taking that timeslot :(

Can't JTBC already add a second timeslot for dramas? They have too many good ideas for only 6 dramas a year :(

 I don`t know if this drama will take the place for Age of Youth 2. Maybe they have another time slot. They had the second season of Age of Youth in works from some time. I doubt they will postpone the airing for a new drama but know knows .We`ll see.

I read that Age of Youth has the premiere in August 25 and Untouchable is in talks to air in November. The shooting will beggin in September.

Edit> Sorry I misread. You are worrying for the drama Package. I don`t follow news about Package but I read about this drama ages ago. I don`t know the reason why they postpone again. The drama was pre produced and had a lot of time to prepare for its airing. Maybe JTBC has another timeslot in mind or not.  In the Asianwiki page drama "Untouchable" will follow the drama "The Package". Everything is fine now. :)

Source: Soompi by C. Oh


On July 18, it was reported that Jin Goo, Go Jun Hee, Kim Sung Gyun, and Apink’s Jung Eun Ji had been cast in a new JTBC drama called “Untouchable” (working title).

Since then, it has been confirmed that Jin Goo has been cast for the lead role, Jang Joon Seo. The drama will be headed up by director Jo Nam Gook, who has directed dramas like “Empire of Gold” and “The Chaser.” The combination of the casting of Jin Goo, who shot to Hallyu stardom with his role as Seo Dae Young in the popular KBS 2TV drama “Descendants of the Sun,” and the addition of a trustworthy director like Jo Nam Gook is already making “Untouchable” one of the most anticipated dramas of the second half of 2017.

After the news of his casting was released, Jin Goo stated, “I am very happy to be part of such a great project. Above all else, the strong script was very appealing to me and I am studying in order to successfully take on the role of Jang Joon Seo. Please look forward to the drama.”

A source from JTBC stated that the rest of the potential cast – Kim Sung Gyun, Go Jun Hee, and Apink’s Jung Eun Ji – were currently looking over their respective offers for the drama in a positive light.

“Untouchable” will be set in a fictional city called Bukcheon and take place over the course of three generations of the Jang family, who control the city. The drama will tell the story about the family’s power games and hidden secrets, and is currently set to air in October of this year.

Jin Gu set to headline Untouchable on JTBC

by javabeans

Jin Gu, Jung Eun-ji, Kim Sung-kyun, Go Jun-hee

JTBC has announced the newest drama in its pre-production pipeline, titled Untouchable, and has just confirmed that Jin Gu (Night Light, Descended From the Sun) has signed on to headline. The production is also in talks with Jung Eun-ji (Sassy Go Go), Kim Sung-kyun (Answer Me 1988), and Go Jun-hee (She Was Pretty), who are all reportedly “positively considering” the drama.

From the description, Untouchable sounds like it’ll be in the thriller-melodrama mold, being set in a fictional city where the Jang family has held power for three generations. The drama deals with the power battle that unfolds among them, as well as a hidden secret that our hero aims to uncover. Jin Gu is set to play Jang Joon-seo, the second son of Jang clan patriarch who is described as a determined man who doesn’t let himself be pushed around by those in power. After he loses the woman he loves, he resolves to get to the bottom of the circumstances that caused it. No descriptions have been provided for the other characters.

Yeah... the genre is our cup of tea. Most people will say too much thriller/ mystery shows but not us. :D I will watch because of the genre and Jin Goo mostly.  I love Jin Goo (I saw him first in Falling for Innocence and liked him on the spot but I did not see enough of him because he appeared only a few episodes. Then I saw him in Night Light and it was not enough either because the ladies were the protagonists and had more important roles. Now I hope the third time is the charm. He is the center of the story and it seams he has an intense/ dynamic role. The others I am not very familiar. I saw Kim Sung Kyun and Go Jun Hee in one project each (Moon Lovers and respectively The Chaser) and I remember their role. Like them. I heard about Jung Eun Ji but never saw her in anything. I don`t worry about the cast. I hope the writer rises to the expectation. I saw just one drama written by this writer (Big Man) and I was not impressed but there is hope. Fingers crossed.
