Fans of idol-actress UEE can breath of sigh of relief hearing that she’s turned down the KBS weekend drama offer for My Golden Life. One of her most popular roles was in the weekend drama Ojakkyo Brothers opposite Joo Won but she really hasn’t had a real hit since then, not even with weekend melodrama Golden Rainbow. What made My Golden Life a rather precarious proposition was that her male lead would likely be Park Shi Hoo who remains mired in past sexual scandal remnants and himself trying to return to the good graces of drama fans. So it’s probably a smart move for UEE to pass on My Golden Life, and lucky for her another offer went her way also from KBS. The network is courting her as the female lead for time-traveling romance drama Manhole, which is in talks with Jaejoong to star as the time-traveling male lead. If he accepts it will be the first drama since his military service discharge earlier this year.
Manhole is about a young man who time-travels via a manhole to prevent an upcoming wedding and also struggling with being unable to focus on his studies to pass the civil service exam. It takes over the time slot from Seven Days Queen and is from the screenwriter of TEN.
