Wow… finally… hope this time is really a fact…

I just woke up and saw this news

Since Hyun Joong didn’t say anything about this news is wrong… haha

I think is true this time… ^^

hmm… I watched the Chinese version before…

The male character is kind of different from Hyun Joong

Maybe some of you think is not very suitable for him


No matter what… I believe in Hyun Joong’s acting skill and happy to see him in another drama again … hehe

btw, thanks Ode for the translation ….

Hyun Joong fighting !!!!!!


Group SS501’s Kim Hyun Joong has been chosen as the final lead for ‘It started with a kiss’ / ‘Mischievous kiss’.

Kim Hyun Joong’s side Keyeast has revealed that they successfully finished discussions with the drama’s production company Group Eight recently. However, although Kim Hyun Joong has not had signed the papers with Group Eight, they have finished and confirmed his partake in the drama. In awhile more, Group Eight will be releasing official notice of this.
To Kim Hyun Joong’s participation in this drama, he has been on a fiery go with many other strong rivals right until the end, with considered nominees like CN Blue’s Jung Yong Hwa and DBSG’s ChangMin. Though ChangMin was the final consideration along side Kim Hyun Joong right until the final decision, and that his agency SM Entertainment did meet up with Group Eight with quite a keen stand, MBC’s production company has finally taken a firm stand with Kim Hyun Joong as the choice for male protagonist.

Kim Hyun Joong’s character name will be Baek Seung Jo in the drama, and he plays a genius who has never failed in getting a Number 1 across the entire school who particularly excels in physical education and cooking, not just that, he is also a perfect guy who knows almost every thing under the sky. He will be falling in love with a simple girl Moon Ha Ni (undecided for choice) who has never done anything right, on the contrary to him.

The drama’s production company felt that Kim Hyun Joong’s Yoon JiHoo in Boys over Flowers is somewhat similar to this Baek Seung Jo of ‘It started with a kiss’. Though that being the case, Yoon Ji Hoo was a character very sweet and loving, whereas Baek Seung Jo is one who is cocky and proud, totally on the stark end.

As for the female lead Moon Ha Ni, it hasn’t been decided as of yet. Considered nominee Park Bo Young is facing contract issues with agency company, so her participation will be considered with reservations. As to actress Park Shin Hye, KARA’s Han Seung Yeon, f(x)’s Sulli have all been undergoing auditions for the role, which was gaining about a huge amount of attention after this was known.

As to the fact that Kim Hyun Joong has once again taken on the role of a popular manhwa lead, he will be receiving much attention on him as to whether or not he will be able to successfully pull it off again.

Korean version of ‘It started with a kiss’ has been receiving enthusiastic anticipation from netizens.

‘It started with a kiss’ will begin airing after ‘Road Number One’ drama on MBC in latter half of year.

    really can’t wait for his drama^^…i really wish shown at KBS channel so we can watch at KBS World channel^^

    I really think Leader will do a great job in this. I’ve seen his solo MV where he played a killer…did you see those cold, mean, calculating expressions? Yet he projects that perfect, impossible to ignore sex appeal. When I watched the Taiwan version, the male antagonist was such a bad person that I hated him. I’m afraid that Hyun Joong will act so good in this role that the love/hate thing will confuse the heck out of me, hehe.

      Hehe, but throughout the drama, you can’t hate the main character, but like him (that’s what i feel, cool, cute, kind-hearted…)
      Thanks for wingwing the good news. As a fan, i’ll give him my full support. Good luck and take care, HJL.

  10. fewzz July 8, 2010 at 11:58 am #

    Nice to hear. I like the Taiwan version and I hope and pray that KHJ will perform much better than BBF. I’m really sad too because it’s not aired here in the Philippines. We only have the KBS WORLD. I hope the fans of KHJ will post every scene. Hoping ….. …… KHF fighting.

    I hope the Korean version will be very much improved.I just finished the mother drama and I cannot imagine how KHJ will be in it .I’m trying to be nice and polite but I have to be honest -the drama borders on being idiotic . I’m sorry nothing to do with whatever ,maybe I have seen too many dramas already and kind of compared them.Really ,KHJ deserve a better drama .

      Agree!!!.. The male lead role is not that special. The story itself is cute and funny, but not as rich. I really hope Leader and KeyEast reconsider this deal.
      This second acting project is very crucial to his future acting career. He HAS to have a very good role so he can prove his ability and popularity.
      Ohhh please please, i pray to God that he pick another, better one.

    Hyun Joong will do great in this! Much better than Yoon Ji Hoo. Naoki Irie is more closer to Hyun Joong’s character (Nonchalant, indifferent, SMART, HOT, WARM AT HEART)



  16. sugaranne512 July 8, 2010 at 3:25 pm #

    We’ll support you Leader – all the way!!!

    Love ya!

    I was hoping he can get a role that is more like his character, a person who is mischievous and joke around. But this is good too, I watched the Taiwanese version and like the male character that Hyun Joong will be playing. Looking forward to the drama.

  18. iren37 July 8, 2010 at 11:20 pm #
