The Discovery of Affection Casts its Second Leads and Changes its Name


News reports announced today that Yoon Kye Sang (Who Am I?) and Yoo In Na (Secret Garden) have been tapped as the second leads for the upcoming Hong Sisters drama The Discovery of Affection, which supposedly also has its name changed to Best Love.

The Hong Sisters really are skewing older and more sophisticated for their latest drama, which has already been confirmed to star Cha Seung Won and Gong Hyo Jin. With the main casting complete, I am officially thrilled with the cast and concept. Starting my countdown until May!

I like Yoon Kye Sang and Yoo In Na, both of whom are very charming actors on screen, and I hope they get together in the end rather than butting into the perfect potential OTP that is Cha Seung Won paired with Gong Hyo Jin. I hesitate to get my hopes up too high, but the story of an over-the-hill top actress and her relationship with another male star just reeks of possibility and real emotional stakes.

Also confirmed as part of the cast is manager-turned-actor Jung Jong Ho, who will be playing Gong Hyo Jin’s character’s manager older brother. This drama will be broadcast on MBC starting in May on Wed-Thurs to follow Royal Family.

The Discovery of Affection Casts its Second Leads and Changes its Name — 16 Comments

  1. thanks for the updates 🙂
    i’m waiting for may cause i’m really excited about this drama. i’m watching city hall (thank you very much to you!!!!!) and i’m in love with it and of course with CSW. Not only a very talented actor, but sooooo hooooot :P. and best of all not a boy but a man!!!! so great expectations 😀

    • As you can see in that drama wiki, Festival doesn’t premiere until June 22, 2011.

      Royal Family is a 16 ep drama that started airing on March 2, 2011, and is slated to end April 22, 2011. Which means The Discovery of Affection gets the two months in between Royal Family and Festival.

      Festival will follow The Discovery of Affection.

  2. Oh… I actually liked the original title better. But anyway, I’m totally onboard with Yoo In Na (I had to make sure not to type Yoo Ah In…) =)

    • lol, that was my first reaction too – “Yoo Ah In’s in this!?” Then I went back and read it properly. Liked her in Secret Garden, though, so can’t wait till May!

  3. Wow! I haven’t seen YKS since Who Are You. I don’t like war dramas, even if romantically inspired, so I skipped Road No One and did not like his character in Triple.

    He’s a very talented actor. Hope he gets plenty of screen time in the drama.

    • same here. i love him! i’m surprised he’s second lead since he’s done lead jobs, but i’m sure he’ll do his role justice. i’m just glad to see him back on a show.

    • I am also excited to see him after Who Are You… It’s sad that he is the second lead but at least we get to see him again.

  4. Yes!!! I love love love the casting for this drama!! Excited now… well actually been excited since the initial casting news. Thanks for this unni!

    But I actually was hoping YKS will soon have another drama that HE is the lead. The last was Who Are You.. right unni?

  5. (echoing the army fanboys) YOO IN NA!!!!!!!!!! Her character was the only one I truly enjoyed in Secret Garden, so yay!
