Eric, Go Jun-hee consider lead roles in KBS fantasy rom-com

by tipsymocha


If they accept, this would definitely be an interesting lead couple. There’s a new drama in the works over at KBS titled Perfume, and both Eric (Oh Hae-young Again) and Go Jun-hee (Untouchable) have been offered the lead roles. Both are still in the considering phase, but it would be nice to see Eric back in dramaland after a three-year absence.

The title of the show is a little touch on the nose, and will be about a magical perfume that brings back youth to its wearer. So, basically, the fountain of youth in a bottle. The role Eric has been offered is that of a top designer who may look perfect from the outside looking in, but actually has a horrible personality. He really sounds like a character, with 52 different phobias and 35 allergies. If there’s anyone that needs to be bubble-wrapped, it sounds like he’s it. Maybe it’s due to all of these fears and allergies that he’s unable to work up the courage to ever pursue love.

Shin Sung-Rok cast in KBS2 drama series “Perfume”


Shin Sung-Rok is cast for the lead male role in new KBS2 drama series “Perfume.” Actress Koh Joon-Hee has already received an offer to play the lead female character and she is still “positively considering” her offer. The screenplay features fantasy elements that would fit nicely in a tvN drama series, centering around a mysterious bottle of perfume that transforms a middle-aged woman into a young woman who becomes a model. Shin Sung-Rok will play fashion designer Seo Yi-Do. He’s a successful fashion designer and has a mean personality.

“Perfume” will first air June, 2019 in South Korea.

Shin Sung Rok Cast In Upcoming Fantasy Rom-Com Drama

by Y. Kim

Actor Shin Sung Rok will soon return to the small screen!

On April 1, Shin Sung Rok’s agency representative revealed, “Shin Sung Rok is confirmed to star as the main male character in KBS’s new Monday-Tuesday drama ‘Perfume’ (literal title).”

“Perfume” (literal title) is a fantasy romantic-comedy about a middle-aged woman who has devoted her life to her family only to see it fall apart before her eyes and a man who doesn’t have the courage to find true love.

Shin Sung Rok will be acting the role of a fashion designer Seo Yi Do who is the ultimate gwanjong (a Korean term referring to those who obsessively seek and crave attention). Seo Yi Do, in the drama, is Korea’s most renowned designer with a perfect body, voice, and face. However, he’s got over 52 different phobias and a total of 35 allergies.

Shin Sung Rok’s last three dramas, which include “Man Who Dies To Live,” “Return,” and “The Last Empress,” have been a great success. It will be exciting to see Shin Sung Rok make a hit yet again, but this time through a non-villain role.









I`ve decided to not watch this drama but if Shin Sung Rok will be the leading man I  reconsidered. I wanted to see Shin Sung Rok in a rom com and my wish became true. He does marvelous the villian roles but I wanted to see a break from the typecast. 


Some sources say it will premiere in June, others in July. We`ll see

Yay! I'm excited for more Shin Sung Rok! Hehehe

I never saw Go Won Hee is anything. I see that she is much younger than Go Jung Hee. I hope she and Shin Sung Rok will make a good couple on screen.


I've seen Go Won Hee in Strongest Deliveryman. I liked her in that drama. But..I did expect a more mature or older actress to be cast along side SSR. I do hope they make a good on screen couple if she confirms. SSR was great with Jung Eunji and Lee Elijah, and both of them were much younger than him.


Anyways, Go Won Hee was also in The King's Face, she was one of the queens in the drama. I can't recall her character. And I don't think she had any interaction with Kim Do Chi aka SSR's character in TKF.

Kim Min Kyu and Go Won Hee are officially confirmed for KBS’s upcoming drama “Perfume” (tentative title).

“Perfume” will tell the story about a middle-aged woman who devoted her entire life to her family only to have them taken away from her and a male fashion designer who has lost the meaning of life. They are both given second chances in life with the help of magic perfume.

Kim Min Kyu will take on the role of Yoon Min Suk, an idol-turned-world-star who is gifted with superior physique, visuals, and soothing voice. His goal is to simply enjoy the life that was gifted to him as a blessing as extravagantly as possible.

Through his agency, Kim Min Kyu shared, “The script is very intriguing and the character Yoon Min Suk seems very charming.” He continued, “I’m excited and nervous as this is my first time [acting in a] fantasy romance drama. I will do my best to show the charms Yoon Min Suk possesses the way they are.”

Go Won Hee’s agency Management Koo also confirmed that the actress will be appearing in the drama.

Go Won Hee will take on the role of Min Ye Rin, a rising star in the model industry with stunning figure. She is the hottest woman in South Korea as an uncommon villainess who leads on both a world-renowned genius designer and a handsome Hallyu star. However, she has a secret of being a middle-aged woman who was given a second chance at life by discovering a magic perfume that makes her look young again.

As a result, Kim Min Kyu will be taking on his first-ever lead role in a major network’s drama, and it will be Go Won Hee’s first time as a lead in a miniseries.

Shin Sung Rok and Cha Ye Ryun are also confirmed for lead roles in “Perfume,” which is set to premiere sometime in June.

Shin Sung Rok to Star in “Perfume”

Posted on April 2, 2019 by Kay

Perfume Korean Drama - Shin Sung Rok

Yes! Shin Sung Rok (The Last Empress) is confirmed to star in the upcoming Korean drama Perfume. He’s set to play a fashion designer who is said to have at least 52 phobias and 35 allergies. Well, that sounds challenging!

I certainly never tire of seeing Shin Suk Rok in villain roles, but I’m thrilled we get to see him in a more traditional lead role. He’s a very multi-faceted actor who can also be very endearing. And I know he will nail the comedic elements, which is a good thing since this character is certainly set up for lots of humor. I will be really looking forward to this!

Kim Min Kyu update




This might be the fastest cast confirmation and script reading I've ever seen. It happened within 1 week after the 1st confirmation lol. (Of course there were discussion behind the scenes that were not shown to us.)


I'm trying not to have any expectations of how the drama would be. I'm aware considering its a fantasy romance it could be good or very bad. I'm in mainly for Shin Sung Rok. I also like Go Woon Hee and Kim Min Kyu too~ if anything, I'll watch for the cast at first. Hahaha

Jo Han-Chul joined KBS 2TV's new drama 'Parfume'.


On the 12th, his company, Snow Company, said that Jo Han - cheol will appear in 'Perfume' as Kim Tae - jun.
Kim Tae-joon, who Jo Chan-cheol plays, is the husband of Ha Jae-suk (Min Jae-hee). He is a talented person with many qualities to be able to succeed in an organization, such as a brilliant brain, a favorable impression, an amicable sociality, and a ridiculous rhetoric. Although she was in love with her beautiful appearance, she disillusioned with the appearance of her married wife after marriage and demanded a divorce.
