I feel bad for II Woo and the cast that the ratings are low too.


Me too, @evie7.

I still need to watch the last two episodes, but I think not only JIW, but all 3 leads did a great job!
I will be looking forward to seeing them in another Drama.


I am thinking that the ratings may be result of Knetizens not ready for the subject matter of gays, and also the script was weak.

Screenwriters Kim Ji Soo and Park Cheol will be writing the script


I have not seen any of the films that Park Cheol worked on,  and I have only seen one Drama written by Kim Ji-Soo; But it so happens that this Drama  - Medical Brothers - is one of my all times favorite.:love:

Jung Il Woo has always shown great performances in historical dramas, including The Return of Iljimae, Moon Embracing the Sun, and Night Watchman’s Journal.


I think Jung Il Woo has shown us great performances in everything he has done!
And why is the writer of this article not even mentioning "Haechi?"  shrugs.

Below is another article about the historical Drama.

Jung Il-woo in talks to lead new historical drama ‘Bossam – Stealing Destiny’

 

It seems like Jung Il-woo is in for a busy year! According to a source from his agency, HB Entertainment, the actor is looking over an offer to star in the upcoming historical series Bossam – Stealing Destiny (literal title).

Set during the rule of King Gwanghaegun in the Joseon dysnasty, Bossam – Stealing Destiny will tell the story of a person who accidentally abducts Princess Soo Kyung.

 

Jung Il-woo was offered to play the male protagonist Ba Woo, a matchmaker of widows who have lost their hopes of getting remarried to a lineup of potential new husbands. When he was still young, someone set him up for a conspiracy. He was able to run away, but since then, he had to go around in disguise and live in poverty.

Jung made his small-screen debut in the 2006 family drama High Kick. In 2011, he played his breakout role in the romantic fantasy series 49 Days. That same year, he landed his next lead role after 2009’s Moon River in the rom-com drama Flower Boy Ramen Shop. He went on to take part in the critically acclaimed project The Moon Embracing the Sun in 2012. Currently, Jung portrays the male lead in JTBC’s inspirational rom-com series Sweet Munchies alongside Kang Ji-young and Lee Hak-joo.
 

Spearheaded by PD Kwon Seok-jang of Avengers Social Club (2017) as well as screenwriters Kim Ji-soo of the upcoming Birthcare Center (2020) and Park Cheol, Bossam – Stealing Destiny will be a tale of love and life that bravely confronts the maltreatment on women and the less fortunate members of the society during Korea’s olden times. It is scheduled to air in the first half of 2021.

At first I didn't think I would like it but actually got  into. You are right that I don't think Korea is ready for the subject matter but loved that they didn't make Tae Won's character a stereotype gay person. I loved the cast they all did a great job, II Woo was flawless but I'm a bit biased.

 

@willenette I'm so happy he's in talks for another drama just why does it have to be another historical? I'm not crazy about historical dramas but will take what I can get.

Yang Dae Hyuk Talks About Working Alongside Jung Il Woo And Kang Ji Young In “Sweet Munchies”

 

627ff9c0c3434bd1bfb8f5afd5af7764.jpeg?s=

 

Yang Dae Hyuk sat down for an interview following the conclusion of his latest project, JTBC’s “Sweet Munchies,” to discuss his thoughts on his role as well as what it was like to film with co-stars Jung Il Woo and Kang Ji Young.

 

The actor was full of gratitude for his co-stars Jung Il Woo and Kang Ji Young, saying, “Maybe it’s because they’re playing the main characters, but they are both really good at acting, and they helped me stand out a bit more. I was really thankful to them.”

 

Yang Dae Hyuk also praised Jung Il Woo for his cooking skills. He revealed, “Since there was an eating scene in the drama, I got to try the noodles that he cooked. They were really delicious.”

 

Yang Dae Hyuk finished up the interview by talking about what the drama meant to him. “It was a drama about a love triangle, it also touched on the stories of sexual minorities,” he explained. “It’s a subject matter you don’t see often, but it wasn’t over-the-top and I think it touched on the topics that needed to be addressed. The food that appeared every episode brought a lot of comfort to people. I think I’ll remember it as a drama that can heal people. It will remain as one of my pleasant memories of 2020.”

 

Check out the finale of “Sweet Munchies” below:

These Are All The Handsome Leading Men Seo Ye Ji Worked With

 

Actress Seo Ye Ji is currently one of our new favorite leading ladies. We fell deeply in love with her charisma in the recently ended hit Korean series on Netflix, "It's Okay To Not Be Okay."

 

Seo Ye Ji has been around the entertainment industry for roughly seven years now. The actress' first-ever appearace in a TV show was in a sitcom where she starred next to Go Kyung Pyo, Yeo Jin Goo, and many others.

 

As we have counted Seo Ye Ji's Korean dramas and movies, we have summed up a total of 19 projects and we're so proud to announce that she's finally receiving the worldwide recognition that she deserves!

 

Throughout her seven-year career as an actress, Seo Ye Ji had the opportunity to work with amamzing leading men on fabulous projects, in which they undoubtedly worked hard for to reach high ratings.

 

Let us show you the compilation Of Seo Ye Ji's leading men through the years below.

 

 

Diary Of A Night Watchman (Seo Ye Ji and Jung Il Woo)

 

The Compilation Of Seo Ye Ji’s Leading Men Through The Years

 

In this fantasy-sageuk drama Jung Il Woo will portray the character of Prince Wal Gang who is a prince by day and works as a watchman at night. Based on Nextflix's drama description, Prince Wal Gang is blessed with the ability to see spirits and gets in a hard situation to control the throne. On the other hand, Seo Ye Ji's character is Soo Ryeon, who is a noblewoman deemed of becoming the bride of the crown prince. The best part is, she definitely gives off Mun Yeong vibes from It's Okay To Not Be Okay in this drama!

The moment when Jung Il Woo met Lee Min Ho

 
 

Jung Il Woo said that when he met Lee Min Ho, he thought that Lee Min Ho was 'sparkling'.

Lee Min Ho and Jung Il Woo’s friendship is undoubtedly a K-world friendship that is enviable. Their friendship precedes their stardom and popularity. Fans of The King: Eternal Monarch star and Moon Embracing The Sun stars have known each other since they were in high school. Although the pair did not go to the same school, they got acquainted through mutual friends.

 

According to Soompi, Jung Il Woo appeared on My Ugly Duckling last year and said that he had heard about Lee Min Ho long before they both crossed paths. Jung Il Woo said that he remembered hearing about the actor’s fame due to his good looks. “When we were in high school, he was at the school next to me and he was really famous among the students. He was well-known for his good looks, so I heard about him before I ever met him,” said Jung Il Woo.

Jung Il Woo said that when he met Lee Min Ho, he thought that Lee Min Ho was ‘sparkling.’ He added that even though they did not attend the same school, they became friends through mutual friends. They both met as teenagers and over time they both matured. “When we were younger, I would think from time to time, ‘Why does he think like that?’ and ‘Why doesn’t he agree with me?’ Now that we’re past out 30s, we’ve learned to respect each other. I think we’ve become closer because of our difference,” said Jung Il Woo.

 

He added that the two actors are completely opposite when it comes to their personalities. The only thing that binds the two together is their taste in food. “Eventually, we came to respect each other’s differences. We would put up with things we didn’t like if the other person liked it and vice versa.”

 

Jung Il Woo added that apart from food, their teetotalism was a common factor between the two. “When we meet up, we have coffee and go to cafes. Nowadays, I do drink a couple of glasses.” Lee Min Ho and Jung Il Woo also went through bad times together. They were involved in a car crash back in 2006. A car crossed the centreline during their road trip, crashing into their vehicle which resulted in a fatal crash, Koreabook reported. Both actors were hospitalized for months.

 

Fortunately, they have recovered from the crash. The friends made headlines this year when Jung Il Woo sent a sweet gift to Lee Min Ho on the set of The King: Eternal Monarch. The drama marked Lee Min Ho’s return to acting after his military training. Jung Il Woo sent Lee Min Ho a coffee truck with a banner that read, “Min Ho, you’ve done great.” /TISG

Hi @evie7, Yuri from Girl's Generation might be joining JIW in this upcoming historical drama. If cast, Yuri will play the role of a royal princess, Soo Kyung. All her life, the princess pretends to be "reserved" and "quiet" to upkeep the image of the royal family. Following the wishes of her family, she is married to the older brother of her childhood crush, but is quickly widowed after being married one day. Then, her life changes when she's "stolen away" by a stranger named Ba Woo (played by Jung Il Woo). The drama aims to air in early next year, 2021.  Wait & see........for more updates.  :blush:

*** I actually quite like the pairing, looks and age wise if they will do this sageuk drama, "Bossam: Stealing Fate."  Jung Il Woo is always solid and charismatic in historical roles. The drama is slated to be aired next year, with no confirmed network as yet, though. I'm curious what network will air this since all the networks are starting to line up their drama schedules for 2021. :blush:

So he kidnaps her? This premise is intriguing, sounds like he will play an sort of outlaw. I love it when he plays those badish boy parts.  I like Yuri too. I hope we get a little romance in this drama .iminlovebebeh.gif

@evie7, ye, he'll kidnap her. If Yuri decides to join the drama, it will mark her first-ever historical drama to act in. :blush:
