Park Shin Hye and Jang Geun Seok to Play Lovers in Jeju in Mini-movie for Lotte Duty Free

Is there an air of nostalgia lurking around these days? Why else would I suddenly feel like it’s 2009 now and the crazy days of You’re Beautiful have just passed? Last week the leads of YB Park Shin Hye and Jang Geun Seok re-teamed for their umpteenth CF collaboration together, this time all the way over in China to shill for an orange juice line. It was cute but nothing to write home about. This week comes the two-fer treat for fans of GeunShin – they are playing lovers in a drama together! Ahahaha, okay that’s maybe the full picture, sorry for trolling you guys but I couldn’t help it. To clarify, they are making an online mini-movie together for as part of the CF model line up for Lotte Duty Free. You know, it’s those line of stores that claims you are buying something totally cheap because you don’t pay tax on it but that’s mostly not true (trust me, do your price comparison research). Lotte Duty Free always has a sprawling cast of Hallyu acting and pop stars to plaster all over airports and this year a few new faces makes the list.

The hold-overs from previous year(s) include Jang Geun Seok, Choi Ji Woo, Kim Hyun Joong, the six guys ofย 2PM andย whomever is not in the army forย Super Junior. A few folks are gone like Rain and Song Seung Heon but in their places this year comes Park Shin Hye, Lee Min Ho, EXO, and Eru. All the celebrities will be filming their own CFs as well as being part of the over Lotte concept MV called “You’re So Beautiful.” See, what did I say about it feeling like YB is coming back to haunt me in an overwhelming way. Lotte is also splitting the team up into certain pairings to film a mini-drama set in various famous South Korean locales, The mini-dramas will be a tourist film and be transformed into a brochure as well for tourists visiting those places. Park Shin Hye will be playing lovers with Jang Geun Seok for their segment set in Jeju. Kim Hyun Joong and Choi Ji Woo are doing the Busan edition, and Super Junior will be handling the Seoul portion. I’m wondering if MinShin fans from Heirs will be upset that their man Lee Min Ho isn’t doing the Jeju edition with Shin Hye? I’m personally super curious what the Jeju film will be like since its been 5 years and with how much Park Shin Hye and Jang Geun Seok have matured through the years it ought to be something worth checking out.

I know this is what Lotte deems as popular Hallyu artists du jour, but I’m a little peeved there are there three guy groups but no girl groups. Where’s the gender representation people?

  1. Sooooo want to see it !!! Keep this update for us Koala … Pretty please ??

    I have always wanted to see Kim Hyun Joong pair up with either Park Shin Hye (they shot a drink commercial togeter) or Yoon Eun Hye( they shot some photo together for Basic House). But after is surgery, I’m not sure anymore. ๐Ÿ™

    Now I’m waiting for Won Bin to come back and do a drama. Sooooo want to see him pair up with Yoon Eun Hye !! (Squeal)

    • Oops… missing letter there, I ment to say that after Kim Hyun Joong had done some surgery to “his” face (nose job), I kinda lost that interest in him pairing up with the girls, but hey,!! …. I don’t even think that’s gonna happen.

  2. Yes koala, we Minshin fans are upset. You should check Minshin thread at soompi lol ๐Ÿ™‚
    LMH already filmed his part of Lotte cf last week. General consensus is that his agency will not allow them to do anything together after their dating rumours. Their chances of promoting Heirs together overseas are also slim now. If it’s true i’m really upset with his agency.

  3. awww, I am thrilled to hear this. Of all her leading men, she had the best chemistry with JGS (until Yoon Shi-yoon came along) and I am thrilled to see them together again, in something that approximates a drama no less.

  4. It’s kind of funny how Kim Hyun Joong and Choi Jiwon are pairing up to do Lovers in Busan, especially since it’s always mentioned how KHJ resembles Yon-sama!

  5. I’m really excited for this. Really really excited. These two are one of my most favorite kdrama couples ever and both never had such great chemistry with any of their other co stars. Since this is the year they’re collaborating in god-knows-how-many stuff, I hope they do a drama together for the grand finale of it all. A sageuk preferably! They’re so much love, I’m really looking forward to them acting as lovers again specially with Shin hye’s hair all long now!

  6. Not sure about gender representation but don’t women/girls shop more than men? And fangirls are more attached to their boy groups. ๐Ÿ™‚

    I’m excited to see the Ji Woo-Hyung Joong one because they seem to have the same personality in variety shows. (Bumbling and adorable. Sooo not like the “superstar image” they project in dramas.)

    • ThanX for the link!! I have just watch it. It was cute. Can’t wait to see PSH and JGS part together. I hope it’s super cute to the point where all the fan of them will GUSH.

  7. I might be the only one here not excited about them being back together. I’m no MinShin fan but really not one for JGS. I kind of want Park Shin Hye to do something with Kim Woo Bin; I guess it’s my Young Do bias speaking here.

    I did not know Kim Hyun Joong had a nose job. Say what?

  8. Omg i cant wait…omg ko mi nam and taekyeong are back toghther ..omg omg …i soooo love them togther. And they are playing lovers in jeju ..hahah im in blast

  9. I think they gonna have fun together.
    I just wondering what Ms Koala thinks of MinShin? Is there something going on since you are pretty good in predicting these things?

  10. I just learned now that MH’s agency will stop anything that concerns them just to avoid the dating rumors?With your due respect,pls don’t forget that they are public figures.At least,the minshin’s fan will have something to look forward to!!They’re FM on April 18th!
