I feel like the K-drama People of Incheon Airport cannot get anyone to actually commit to being at that darn airport. K-ent is reporting that Park Bo Gum has been offered the male lead and is considering the romance drama Boyfriend. This obviously puts a twist on him being in talks for People of Incheon Airport the same way Suzy is being courted for that drama and recently got her name attached to another K-drama Vagabond with Lee Seung Gi. Park Bo Gum has also grown out his name even longer than the debut two weeks ago at the Baeksang Arts Awards, it really brings back mid-2000 K-drama vibes when the male leads like Jo Hyun Jae, Gong Yoo, and Hyun Bin all did long hair back then. I don’t know whether to like or dislike because I think he pulls it off but it looks a little too cutesy and emo for me.
If Park Bo Gum elects to do Boyfriend, his role is an average working multiple part time jobs to ready himself for proper career employment. In the end he’s still rejected so he uses all the money saved for the last year to travel overseas and there he meets a girl. She’s super rich and trying to escape her everyday is the same life in the exact opposite way of him struggling the same way everyday with being poor. The drama is penned by the screenwriter of Entertainer and Pretty Boy.
