My timing now seems spot on when I covered Yunho‘s return from the military recently and first magazine spread in this month’s Arena Magazine. I mentioned that he’s likely going to return to his acting side job along with his idol day job as a member of the duo DBSK and mere days later it’s confirmed that he’s going to tackle acting soon. Yunho will be the male lead for upcoming K-drama Melo Holic, adapted from the same name Korean webtoon. It’s about a male lead with the ability to sense people’s thoughts and feelings through touch which makes his cold and cynical, but one day he meets the female lead with a split personality right after she loses her first love and falls for her. It sounds like a typical webtoon type romance and will his first such male lead role as in recent years he tried out more dramatic fare like Queen of Ambition and The Night Watchman’s Journal.
The PD for Melo Holic is definitely on my check out list, having directed Introverted Boss, Another Oh Hae Young, and Marriage Not Dating. No word yet on what network Melo Holic will air on but an early pick for tvN seems like a smart guess.
