Shinhwa’s Eric And Go Won Hee Confirmed For Upcoming Rom-Com

Nov 5, 2019
by M. Dang



Shinhwa’s Eric and Go Won Hee have been confirmed to be leading a new drama!

On November 5, media outlet News1 reported that the two actors will be starring in Channel A’s upcoming drama, “Vacation in My Own Way” (literal title). The drama will be a healing romantic comedy that follows the love and growth of a reckless world-famous fashion designer named Yoo Yoo Jin, who has lost her memories, and star chef Moon Seung Mo after they meet in Seo Ha Village.

Eric will take on the role of star chef Moon Seung Mo, who runs a pop-up Korean cuisine restaurant. After losing his parents in a sudden fire, he moves to Seo Ha Village, where he meets Yoo Yoo Jin. He will show chemistry with Yoo Yoo Jin, who abruptly enters his life and disturbs his peace, as they bicker continuously. The project is Eric’s first drama in four years, and viewers are already anticipating what charms he will bring to the screen.

Go Won Hee plays world-renowned fashion designer Yoo Yoo Jin, who is active under the name Yoo Bella. Formerly an edgy and chic designer, Yoo Yoo Jin turned into an extremely quirky and clumsy person after a car accident, earning herself the nickname Yoo Byul Na (meaning “eccentric” in Korean). Viewers are looking forward to seeing how Go Won Hee will bring the role to life after previously displaying her fresh and unique acting in dramas such as KBS’s “Perfume” and JTBC’s “Flower Crew: Joseon Marriage Agency.”

  • Guest changed the title to [Upcoming Drama 2020] Yoobyeolna! Chef Moon, 유별나! 문셰프 - Eric & Go Won Hee - Premieres in March 2020

I've been wanting to see the lead actor after watching him in Oh Hae Young/ Another Miss Oh. I laugh much watching that. I'm not fond of rom-com but when writing, story, and acting is good. I watch.


I am familiar with both the leads. I saw Eric in Spy MyeongWol and Discovery of Love and Go Won Hee in Parfume. I am not too fond of rom com as well but sometime I need to watch a light drama. I like to laugh but the writing has to be good. There are romantic comedies that have a good writing so I am watching those dramas without effort.


I have a question. Are dramas from Channel A translated? That`s my worry.

@larus Thanks for making the thread!!  I shall contribute. :)


I used to watch a lot of k-dramas but I haven't for the last few years... I haven't watched anything with Go Won Hee but she's been getting lot of praises... I look forward to this one.   I really hope this drama gets subbed.  Like you, I'm not sure if people sub Channel A dramas...

So kind Moon Jung Hyuk oppa~
He has such a nice personality
Even the selfie manner :thumbsup:(t/n: meaning he put his face closer to the camera so her face looks smaller. You know Koreans love small face )
(I can’t believe he’s going from Eric-nim to oppa :lol:)

I said it before, I feel Chef Moon character will be the country pumpkin kind based on the plot and character descriptions. From a healing drama to he likes organic ingredients, hates MSG and the drama is also sponsored by Danyang to promo their local products & tourism... Go Won Hee plays a high fashion designer, Chef Moon must be the country pumpkin kind for the character contrast eh?  If you expect a cool sassy Chef Moon llike Jamie Oliver of The Naked Chef, u might be in for “disappointment” XD :tounge_xd:


From the above pics... looks like we're really having our country chef huh? Partly the poor quality of the pic and partly how he looks hella young there, I couldn't recognize him at first lol








^^ Just want to add, those 2 photos are not from the current drama.  They're old photos from 3 Meals A Days and Invincible Youth

191211 Choi Kwang-Je: “I’m Happy to Work With Shinhwa’s Eric In A New Drama. I’m Grateful He Takes Good Care of Me”


Actor Choi Kwang-je expressed his gratitude to Eric.


Choi Kwang-Je confirmed his appearance for Channel A miniseries ‘Unique! Chef Moon’ as Bang Da-hoon, a painter and a close friend of Moon Seung-mo (Eric). He will play a generous person who fully embraces Moon Seung-mo, who was devastated because of his parents’ sudden death in a fire.


In a recent interview with Herald POP at a cafe in Sinsa-dong, Gangnam-gu, Seoul, Choi Kwang-je expressed his feelings about working with Eric.


Choi Kwang-je said, “I wanted to be in the series because of Eric. In the drama, my character is really close to Eric’s character and I am really close with him during filming. We are having so much fun.”

He added, “I think I meet a really good brother after ‘Pegasus Market’ drama. I’m feeling confident because Eric is taking good care of me.”


Choi also said, “I remember one day Eric asked me to take a selfie with him. Eric said he enjoyed watching ‘Pegasus Market’ with his wife (Na Hye-mi) and she wanted to see me (Kwang-je). So I happily took a selfie.


Unique! Chef Moon’ is a healing romantic comedy drama about star chef Moon Seung Mo (Eric) and a world-famous fashion designer Yoo Bella (Go Won Hee). Yoo Bella lost her memory in a car accident and moved to Seoha Village. She was known as the troublemaker at the village. There, she met star Chef Moon Seung-mo who went back to Seoha Village after the sudden death of his parents. Yoo Bella’s appearance abruptly disturbed Moon Seung-mo’s peaceful daily life. The drama is scheduled to air in March.

Go Won Hee looks so tall in some of the pic.  Funny how the camera angle plays tricks :)

Synopsis & Character Relationship Chart


I like the plot. It sound like a lot of ruckus will happen with Yoo Bella's appearance at the village

And then there's a 7-year-old girl.  It's nice seeing Eric playing dad for the 1st times :)


I'm really curious of the relationship chart... Any one can help?






Unique! Chef Moon (2020)

Starring: Shinhwa’s Eric Mun, Go Won Hee

Star-chef Moon Seung-mo (Eric), who was on his way up as the blue chip of the culinary industry with his own Korean cuisine, suddenly moved to the countryside.  Following the wish of his late parents, who died from a fire, he opened a restaurant in Seoha Village in Chungchong-namdo.  He was very ambitious at first but it was far too rural.  Life in Seoha is so quiet. However an incident occurred and broke up the peace.  A lady, named Yoojin (Go Won-hee), was found with her fur coat on the mountain.


Everyone was surprised by the stranger’s appearance but accepted her to the community. Seung-mo, who is living alone, is put to be in charge of her care. He nags her to leave soon and tries to send her back quickly.  But this woman doesn’t remember anything, her name, age, address, nothing. And so, Seungmo starts an obligatory life with her.  She is very annoying, never appreciative for anything even though she is a house guest.  She doesn’t even look at the food he makes, just eats the junky food.  


His stress level is about to reach the roof, but another house guest appears.  This time, it’s a 7-year-old girl (Go Doyeon) who claims he is her father.  “Me, the father?” he’s stunned and doesn’t know what to do.  His life with them has already begun.  Seungmo, Yoojin and Seungmo’s daughter, could Seoha form a happy family?
