Park Shi Hoo in Final Talks to Join the Cast of Upcoming KBS Drama Maids

Come again? Man, K-dramas and their casting news oftentimes gives me severe whiplash. But then again, I did say that the rumored cast for the upcoming SBS drama Sweet Scandal was just that, a rumor. Thank god I hedged my bets, because looks like that casting ship is sinking fast.

News broke yesterday that Park Shi Hoo is in final negotiations to star in Maids, the upcoming KBS Wed-Thurs drama (to follow The Thorn Birds in June), which is Sung Yuri‘s return to drama after a two year hiatus following Swallow the Sun.

I have a super soft spot for Yuri, who went from a beyond atrocious actress when she first debuted to a confident performer who may not have the most skill, but makes up for it with lots of heart. It also doesn’t hurt that almost all her male co-stars are on my list of faves (So Ji Sub, Jang Hyuk, Kang Ji Hwan, Hyun Bin, Ji Sung….damn that lucky woman!).

Supposedly the male lead of Maids has already been cast with Jung Kyeo Woon, who might be a great actor with tons of charisma, but sadly does nothing for me. Which was why I initially had zero interest in Maids. But with the addition of Park Shi Hoo, suddenly I’m interested purely in a rubbernecking sort of way.

Both Park Shi Hoo and Jung Kyeo Woon are perennial second leads (for the most part) that have developed a reputation for stealing the show and/or the girl from under the first male lead’s pants. Both guys are also hot commodity right now, and highly prolific, with Maids being the 3rd drama in one year for both of them. I think it’s a toss-up as to who gets the girl (but I’ve learned not to bet against Park Shi Hoo). Between Manny and Maids, I’ll be up to my eyeballs in domestic helper love stories come June.

Park Shi Hoo in Final Talks to Join the Cast of Upcoming KBS Drama Maids — 16 Comments

  1. What??!!!…So now what happens to Sweet Scandal??….Now I’m watching Maid!….PSH and JKW?….this is a tough one to choose from….also these two have both got the girls in their last dramas despite being second leads (I kind of refuse to believe that JKW was lead in Dr Champ when it had the Uhm Force in it)…so yeah this will be hilarious…cant wait for all the shipping wars to begin

    • ….me too, Park Shi Hoo all the way!!!!
      I sooooo loved him in PP, I even stalked Eyagi (his agency) in Gangnam last year, but to no avail!!! He was in China for a fan meet…tsk..tsk..
      PSH’s improved acting in QoR, further solidified my love for him!!!
      He may not be as handsome as most KActors I admire, but his charisma..more than makes up for it!!!

  2. Interesting casting!
    Team PSH vs. Team JKW
    Can’t wait to watch it already!
    Bet there’ll be lots of abs & shower scenes maybe?
    Wouldn’t it be greater if KSY was the main girl ’cause both worked with KSY?
    Well that’s just me. Lucky Yuri!
    And before I forget count me in on Team PSH!

  3. True, Sung Yuri is one of lucky girl. If I’m not mistaken, she used to be girlfriend of Song Seung Hun, right?
    Team PSH and Team JKW, I don’t know which side I should choose..

  4. holy crap!!! is this real life???? my 2 favorite “second leads” in one drama?!?! oh no who am i supposed to root for now??? leaning a bit towards park shi hoo though, kekeke

  5. PSH better get the girl. I hate not knowing final ship going in so I’ll probably hold off watching this until the drama is done.

  6. Man… I wish park Shi HOO is lead!:) I like the other guy too but i like him more. Damn…i’ll be having 2nd syndrome all the way. I hope they will cast a good 2nd lead girl for him to pair with.

  7. I just Pray to Drama Gods He won’t join in Maids. I Will be so TORN! I love JGW and PSH. It will be hard for me to root one of them to get the girl….
