Moon Geun Young Considers Drama Return with Chaebol’s Daughter on SBS

I love Moon Geun Young but never feel terribly sad when she takes long breaks between acting projects, or even when she chooses dud dramas. She’s got a life outside of acting and a smart level head on her shoulders so I figure she’s happy doing whatever else when there’s a long time between hearing of her return to acting. Being a renowned child actress is so hard, skipping the rising part of the career and hitting the big leagues so young, it takes a lot more work to keep a high flying career continuously high flying.

Her last drama was the abominably stupid and dull sageuk Goddess of Fire Jungyi two years ago, and aside from doing the sageuk movie Sado slated for release later this year, I haven’t heard a peep about a return to drama land. Until now, and the news is a big one to boot! Moon Geun Young has received the offer for Chaebol’s Daughter (True Romance) airing on SBS Mon-Tues, which is also courting Park Seo Joon for the male lead. Industry insiders had mentioned Han Groo being in talks for the drama but it might now appear it was for the second female lead role. I don’t even care who gets the rest of the roles in this drama, if Moon Geun Young is in then I am not missing it for the world.

Earlier this year Moon Geun Young was in Japan to promote the Japanese airing of GoF and with it comes two more photo spreads published exclusively in Japanese entertainment magazines. Super duper love how gorgeous she looks, this is my favorite hairstyle on her by far. Moon Geun Young’s role in Chaebol’s Daughter is the youngest child of a chaebol family who hides her identity and becomes a supermarket clerk in order to find true love without strings attached. It’s basically the exact opposite of her poor girl dark Candy girl role in Cheongdamdong Alice.

Moon Geun Young Considers Drama Return with Chaebol’s Daughter on SBS — 60 Comments

  1. Ooh I like this development! Han Groo would’ve been great too and tbh I’m a little disappointing she’s regressing back to second lead roles, I think she should just jump back to the vampire drama with LJK now. The reason I really like the idea of MGY doing this drama is that it kinda sorta reminds me of Cinderella’s Sister where I fell in love with her and she even has the same hair she had in the beginning of that show. Man I can’t believe it’s been five year since that drama ended.

      • Just because someone theorised that MBC rescinded their offer doesn’t mean they actually did. People are acting like that’s a fact…

      • @kitai – people are not acting at all. MBC themselves told the media Han Groo wasn’t right for the part. Why is it so hard for people to believe that a network will kick out an actor for not being famous enough? They do it all the time.

      • What came out was that Han Groo declined the offer. MBC didn’t tell the media that she wasn’t right. And obviously MBC didn’t kick her out because she’s not famous enough, or they wouldn’t have given her the offer in the first place.

  2. I love Moon Geun Young. I can’t wait to see her back in the small screen. And yes, love her with the long hair.

  3. Thanks Captain Koala for this wonderful news. I hope MGY accepts this offer and that this new drama will be much better than her last. Geun Young-ssi, fighting! 🙂

  4. Oh I like her. I’ll check this out if I have time, since it’s not my first option. There are so many interesting dramas coming up it’s hard to choose just a few.

  5. “She’s got a life outside of acting and a smart level head on her shoulders so I figure she’s happy doing whatever else when there’s a long time between hearing of her return to acting. ”
    Is she known for other things apart from her acting? Like Gu Hye Sun has her directing,painting and writing career apart from her acting. (I’m not commenting about her success in those fields,just her participation),but i don’t remember hearing about MGY anything apart from her acting.
    Anyways,i hope this drama has a good story and production because i’m really liking the cast so far.

  6. Hi koala, heard some rumor that one actress with the little sister title, was wanting to put breast implants, and I could only think about MGY. What do you think?

  7. I love MGY. Thank you for this information. Can’t wait for her to return on the screen. And she’s lovely in that photo’s….

  8. I really think that MGY is a good actress but for me she squints a little bit and it’s a little bit awkard. And her last dramas didn’t convince me.

    And I would like to see Han Groo in a firt role 🙂

  9. Well, this is one I can cross off my “excited for” list. I was superhappy when it seemed that Han Gru might score a big lead, but this news is Mega meh. I’ve only seen MGY in the awful Mary Stayed Out All Night and the confused wasted potential that was Cheongdamdong Alice, and she didn’t grab me in either. Someone on my TL said “zero on screen charisma” and I find it hard to disagree. So while I’m still happy that poor Ms Han escaped Vampire Drama number 21345, I’m sad she’s lost out here.

  10. MGY’s last three dramas may have stretched her acting from her perspective but did not showcase anything that drama viewers do not expect from a deep actress like her. It will be more refreshing to see her stretch in a thriller-mystery-horror or a totally extreme comedy or total villain etc.

  11. If its her…I too don’t care about the rest or anything. I miss her so bad, I’ll watch her in anything, whatever drama. Yippie!!!

  12. Moon Geun Young unnie!! Long time no see!!
    Super excited for this… If I can even finish the super boring Goddess Of Fire, I can totally whatever drama she’s in..

    • and no, her company is so small and powerless that they can’t pair her up with all popular actors even if they want to… It’s producers and writers and those big names actors that want to work with her… Get the fact straight
      Besides, she has worked w many not-well-known actors too, just that you don’t know. MICN& didn’t have a big name actor but it was a huge hit, Don’t worry I’m a ghost or Kimchee radish cubes or even Goong S are some others… She is one of the most popular actresses so who do you expect her to act with? someone no one knows? Keep hating it’d definitely make your life better

  13. Now this girl can act, but she’s so underrated and the only gripe i have with her is she picks bad projects. She is way better than overrated Park Shin Hye who’s so overrated and is starting to look more like a famewhore who does nonstop mediaplay. MGY is so lowkey but her acting is unquestionably good without having to rely on popular male leads for more noise marketing.

    • Famewhore ……!
      pathetic losers have nothing except bad tongue and stupid words .
      How park shin hye is overrated seriously the producers want her to work and I think MGY got scripts too but may be she doesn’t want to do it so you all blame shin hye bcz she works and accepts the roles really …..!
      The stupid like you needs a doctor to treat your injured soul and fix your tongue .

      • Call me all the name you want but it wont change that her company is known for extreme mediAplay. Gotta hand it to her company for pairing her up with popular actors 95% of the time, cause even if the drama ends up sucking, she’d still reap the benefits. That’s the difference between her and MGY, MGY simply relies on her talent, no mediaplay shoving her constantly down people’s throat, while Park Shin Hye is just too much flash….she’s like vain as a peacock.

    • Your point of view is clearly lacking of evidence bcz shin hye is very secretive single lady woman and the media want to make stories bcz she is one of the shippable woman , she has the chemistry with them so it is the media who wants to make stories about this woman who are keeping her private life a way and not using it as you say bcz she doesn’t need it she has the base since she was young and the best thing is to ignore the media so they will stop writing .
      Park shin hye has the talent before pairing her with these hot costars and who are following her know that so someone like you see things from the surface and drag her name in articles not related to her shows how much your hatred point of view but if you looked in the depth you will see that the media running after her hungrily wanting a piece of cake so they are writing not , this thing not with shin hye only but with many celebrities so they called it hot topics now days.
      There is an old proverb :
      The dogs may park but the caravan move on .

      • I do not think she is a secret person it’s as you say
        She is always updated her SNS accounts (Twitter , InstG, Weibo)

      • @lovedrama I never said PSH is higher level than MGY. I just defended and explained the situation. Do you even bother to read?
        And people will compared PSH and MGY because they are both child actresses but they have different paths and successful in their own way. You don’t have to bring down one to praise the other.
        At the end, PSH is still one of the biggest actresses of her generation that in well-loved in Korea and internationally, whether you agree or now

    • Honestly why did you bring up PSH? She’s got nothing to do with this post or this drama.

      Or are you just a hater who jumps at the chance to bash one person to uplift one of your faves?

      If MGY is as talented as you say she is, then don’t go dragging PSH’s name through the mud just to make her look good.

      Calling her a famewhore because you don’t like that she’s popular is gross ok.

    • It’s embarrassing as a MGY fan for you to be insulting another actress so she can look better. MGY is talented enough she doesn’t need to be compared so you can appreciate her talent. PSH is a lovely actress as well. I also hate how underrated MGY is, but this is not the way to express it.

      • MGY isn’t underrated. What are you talking about? Just because she isn’t Hallyu star doesn’t make her underrated. She is the youngest Daeksang winner. Don’t ever forget that

    • and Shinhye doesn’t need to rely on anyone. In fact, most of her male leads got popular or more popular after working with her. LJS actually wanted to act with her in Doctor Stranger but she was busy and rejected it.
      It’s not her fault that she is hot and media can’t stop gusting about her… It’a annoying for her fans but there is nothing we can do

    • and no, her company is so small and powerless that they can’t pair her up with all popular actors even if they want to… It’s producers and writers and those big names actors that want to work with her… Get the fact straight
      Besides, she has worked w many not-well-known actors too, just that you don’t know.

      Repl

      • OMG, this is war here lol
        I always say MGY should not be compared to PSH
        MGY is a higher level in Korea

    • @Minamin yes she is secretive person when comes to her relationship and friendships .
      She updates with news can be share it not her privacy .
      @lovedrama :
      this shows the difference in thinking and maturation .
      Yes PSH and MGY are both actresses with different styles so You shouldn’t bring Park shin hye name in her articles and keep being hateful to show more of your childish thinking each one has her level inside korea .

    • @Namu you stupid troll! Why don’t you just sing all your praises for MGY if you think that she is really that great of an actress. Why do you have to put down PSH just to lift her up? It is not her fault if your fave actress is underrated in Korea. And why is it an issue if PSH is paired with popular actors? It only means that her popularity is at par with those actors. You’re just an obvious hater.

    • Wow….so much vitriol for PSH who doesnt even figure out in this article. You’re an obvious hater. I don’t dispute the MGY’s skill in acting. But it hasn’t sustained her popularity so far. PSH belongs to a small company eversince and whatever popularity she is gaining now is due to her hardwork. so what if she always posts in her insta…fans who longs for her demand it. It’s the name of the game in any entertainment business. If MGY chooses to live a quiet life, it’s her choice. If it makes the news, its because news of her sell and let’s be realistic…it is what matters to the producers who wants a return investment for their money.That means…PSH can deliver.

  14. Who cares if the story is just meh long as I can see my girl’s comeback yes, now I’m waiting for the return of YEH

    • @lovedrama
      to answer on your above reply

  15. Her styling in these Japanese magazines is incredible. She looks so lovely. I wish more Korean photo shoots would go with this type of styling instead of the overly lightened and airbrushed pictorials where the face loses all color and dimension.

  16. Moon Geun Young shined as bitchy eun jo in cinderella’s sister.

    I think fierce roles suit her more than candy roles. Same for Moon Chae won.

  17. Wow!! Same shit,different post. The mean comments on a not mean subject. Always.

    I love Moon Geun Young, her acting, her looks and her amiable ways. Go Ms. Moon.
    Yay.

    • Lol well said ,me too miss her ! That my queen Ha Ji Won’s comeback and my princess Moonie’s comeback in SBS drama kyaaa

  18. I come by daily hoping to hear some news on Moonie and I was happily rewarded today. Can’t wait to see my favorite Korean actress back on screen.

  19. If you’ve seen her movies, you know she’s a charismatic actress. Unfortunately dramaland has not been good to her. Hope this is a good role for her. She is widely respected in korea so it’s hers for the picking.
