Kang Ji Hwan Rumored to be the Male Lead for Yoon Eun Hye in Sweet Scandal

March is almost over, April is around the corner, and May will be here in a blink of an eye. A ton of new dramas are premiering in May (City Hunter, The Greatest Love, Maids, Pretty Young Woman, et. al.) and all of them have announced casts, are in production, and some have actually started filming. Except for Sweet Scandal, the SBS drama that was given the post-Midas time slot in lieu of Poseidon.

After the last round of rumors, Park Shi Hoo clearly isn’t doing it since he’s pretty much inked for Maids, and I’m way more intrigued by the latest name bandied about. Rumor has it that Kang Ji Hwan is the potential male lead. Kang Ji Hwan paired with Yoon Eun Hye? My brain just exploded from the euphoria.

Casting pigeons also have Song Joong Ki‘s named attached to this project as well, but for now nothing has been verified by SBS or the production company. However, it looks increasingly like this will in fact be Yoon Eun Hye’s next drama vehicle. Her movie My Black Minidress had a solid premiere this weekend, and that’s always a good sign. I’m fascinated about Sweet Scandal because it can potentially be awesome or a train wreck or a marvelous drama dream come true. Now if they can only confirm a cast.

  1. Oh God, please let this be true!

    SJK doesn’t do much for me one way or another (not due to lack of looks or acting skills – he’s simply too young for my tastes) but KJH? Oh please please please.

  2. Noooooo! The screenwriter is horrible!

    I don’t want Kang Ji Hwan or Yoon Eun Hye anywhere near this drama. I really hope these are all just rumors.

    • Who’s the screenwriter? I really really hope these two actors get a good script! I love them both and the idea of both of them together is killing me!

  3. They don’t even have a cast yet. Why don’t they just air Poseidon and THEN air this one? Everyone’s lives will be a lot less stressful.

    The pairing sounds awesome…but isn’t he a little old for her? Maybe I just think she’s younger than she is.

  4. I thought you said that Yoon was considering a drama called Fly again with Song Joong Ki and would be unable to do this because of her movie promotions?…i still dont have a good feeling about this drama because of the writer and TBH I’ve always been very iffy with Kang Ji Hwan…., he’s hot but his performances I’ve seen so far have yet to capture me and I remember reading somewhere (I think DB) that he wanted to stick to Faith….and whatever happened to Lee Seon Jin??….anyways the most aggravating aspect here is that there is not even a confirmed cast but SBS decided to place this instead of Poseidon which not only had an awsome cast but was had begun filming

  5. OMG!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!1

    OMG!!!! Okay, that cast has me *____* because holy wow…I can’t even. alskdjaldfhaldf

    On the other hand, I’m SO worried aobut the script.

    BUT…omg the cast!

  6. Clearly someone at SBS has been smoking the good stuff again. Last I heard Kang Ji Hwan was still somewhat blackballed and/or was doing the medical sageuky thing (or not). The likelihood of them getting this thing underway for the end of Midas is about zilch. I swear SBS does this every winter about this time. Here’s hoping they pick up What’s Up, which at least is in the can, or Poseiden, which was partly done.

  7. I know for sure that KJH’s blacklisting is over. And Faith he dropped out of. All I know that he is working on a drama, but i’m not sure if this is the drama he’s working on.
