HOLY %^&*#*! Sorry for the screaming but this is legit unreal even as a potential casting rumor. K-ent is reporting that Song Hye Kyo is considering the female lead role in upcoming romance K-drama Boyfriend which will likely star Park Bo Gum. Let’s all take a step back and consider that any potential K-drama that even remotely may star Song Hye Kyo gets publicity up the wazoo, and now double that with the news she may work with real life husband Song Joong Ki‘s very good friend and protege Park Bo Gum. I mean, Bo Gummie sang at her wedding! I don’t have a problem with them working together due to any real life awkwardness, everyone is an acting pro, it’s just way weird considering visually I do NOT see them together even as a fictional drama couple. Maybe I’ll be proven wrong but we’ll see in the coming weeks if this casting gets confirmed.
If Song Hye Kyo accepts she will be playing the role of the daughter of a congressman who married into a chaebol family due to her background. She had a child and then gets divorced, and is trying to find her way through life ahead. Boyfriend captures the story behind a woman who seems to have it all and a man to seems to have nothing at all, and yet they seem to go through every day the same way. The drama is from the screenwriter of Pretty Boy and Entertainer, and is set for airing in the second half of 2018.
