Joo Ji Hoon, Jin Se Yeon and Kim Kang Woo Confirmed for MBC Drama Item

I’m not ready to fully get my hopes up for MBC drama Item but it’s at 2/3rd mast now with the confirmed casting of male lead Joo Ji Hoon and Kim Kang Woo. It’s a police thriller with supernatural elements and these two are a spot on casting. But of course there still a caveat namely Jin Se Yeon has also confirmed the offer of the female lead she’s been considering since a few weeks ago, and I figured as much since there was no word that she’s turned down the role. I’m not surprised she keeps getting tapped for dramas, her last drama The Grand Prince was a ratings success the highest ever for cable network TV Chosun though most would say it was due to the acting of the male leads Joo Sang Wook and Yoon Shi Yoon. But that also furthers the notion that she doesn’t sink a drama so let’s hope that she either gets better at acting real quick because the drama sounds cool with the item that conveys superpower skills and the crime solving mystery surrounding it.

Joo Ji Hoon, Jin Se Yeon and Kim Kang Woo Confirmed for MBC Drama Item — 15 Comments

    • There hasn’t been any official statement from China on her yet. Why is she hot news anyway? She is a great example of an actress that creates headlines but has no genuine talent.

      • No official statement but there are lots of rumors. Plus, she’s a top actress, regardless of talent or not, its just strange that there’s no news on koala who covers c-ent quite a lot. Of course, in the end, it’s their blog.

  1. Jin Se Yeon why!?! She’s terrible, they seriously couldn’t get another actress?
    I wonder does she have a powerful sponsor when she keeps getting roles.

    • I didn’t want to believe in this sponsor rumour thing but seriously its happening again and guess one can’t rule out she really could have a power sponsor.

  2. MBC must really love Jin Se Yeon, even nominated her for Daesang… Indeed, from Bae Doona to Jin Se Yeon… was there really no better offer for Ju Ji Hoon? He came from acting in the highest grossing movie of Korea to acting in a MBC drama.

  3. Was so excited when I see Joo Ji Hoon and Kim Kang Woo names for the same drama then happiness came crashing down with Jin Se Yeon…Urghhh drama God please spare us!

    What an anit-climax!Come on JJH!

  4. She tends to ride on popularity of her male leads. She can’t be paired with anyone less popular or the drama will likely sink with her. Can’t bear to watch her no matter how good the male lead is. She is frustratingly hard to watch. Rom coms may be better for her. She’s playing a competent no frills profiler in Item? I can’t imagine her in that role at all. She will be dwarfed once again by the strong male leads. On my not to watch list because of her. Sigh. And JJH back in dramaland was such a highlight too.

    • Yes, she and SKS, do the same thing. Wait for opportunities with terrific male leads… Why they get these opportunities, is beyond me…
