Chae Jong Hyeob to Join Kim So Hyun in Second Chance Romance K-drama Is It Coincidence

Oh I like this male lead pick! A day after news that Kim So Hyun was taking on modern romance K-drama Is It Coincidence the male lead has been announced as likely Chae Jong Hyeob. He was the best thing in the messiest of hot mess dramas that was Sisyphus: The Myth but hasn’t since delivered on that potential in terms of hits. The closest was being the nice second male lead in Nevertheless which doesn’t help that the female lead is as toxic as the male lead and they feed off each other’s dysfunction. This will be a great role for him to be Kim So Hyun’s male lead in Is It Coincidence and the closer in age casting as well as his baby face helps sell the “first loves reunite for a second chance” story here.

  2. But he’s good in Love All Play. I remembered his sunshine smile and thought he is just good in that sunny character but he actually nailed the angst and emotional part too. Hope for this pairing to come through. I haven’t seen baby girl So Hyun in ages ๐Ÿ˜

      • Doesn’t mean the drama and him weren’t good. He’s a natural actor and more talented than most rookies these days.

      • Korean viewership have been dwindling these past few years, some drama that don’t have big names usually will aired unnoticed by k-viewers. Unless they have some solid storyline or casting. But sadly LAP don’t have that gripping storyline, but they do have some avid watchers on twt. It’s just sport romance with some intermingle angst. But with all kdramas that came out this year, LAP is among those that I watched in full without dropping or fast forward ๐Ÿ˜‚ it’s not excellent, but it’s an easy watch for me๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿป

  3. I just want all the confirmations to come through so I can move on to fully enjoying their chemistry. Heโ€™s a good actor even though relatively new and was a standout even in Hot Stove League. I donโ€™t have huge expectations for this drama but itโ€™s giving me One Beloved Summer vibes with the cozy second chance romance so Iโ€™m looking forward to all the cute minus any pointless angst since this is just 8 episodes. Theyโ€™ll make a great visual and acting pair so bring it on quickly. I hope they start filming super soon.

  4. Never seen any of his dramas, but looking at his photos, I have a good feeling about him for some reason lol
    Hoping for a TaeBi-like or Macaron couple-like chemistry ๐Ÿ™๐Ÿ™๐Ÿ™

    Anyway, eagle-eyed So Hyun fans noticed the PD of the upcoming Useless Lies recently followed her and Minhyun on IG, so I guess that pretty confirms their casting lol although of course things can still change. I’m just happy our girl has two dramas coming, the draught has been too long ๐Ÿ˜”

    • Tvn movies have also started following her. So, I hope that Netflix movie rumour is also true. Hope she get to shine in 2023 in all the projects.

      • Yeah, Cinewoollim as well. Hoping for a movie project too, it’s been so long since Pure Love/Unforgettable

    • Not just that tvn movies has also started following her. So, I hope that rumour about Netflix movie is indeed true bcoz I miss her on big screen.

  5. He was good in Love All Play, it’s sad the writting of the characters was disapointing. But in the couple scenes, both actors did well.

  6. I’m satisfied if this casting goes through. CJH has immense charm and the cutest smiles. He’s a real puppy and fits the character well and I can already see the visual chemistry will be great. Since this is a simple romcom his acting chops will be sufficient to compliment KSH and she won’t have to hard carry the whole thing. I’m getting the same feel good vibe as TTON which is my fav drama of hers.

  7. Yesss!!!! I’ve wanted him for her since Stove League! Give me this pair now! When will the full cast list be confirmed??? Why is this drama taking forever to get started!? KSH is coming back after eons! I need this now!!!!

  8. CJH + KSH is a dream pair but why are the confirmations taking forever? The drama is to start filming this month or next month but except for KSH nobody is confirmed. They even started following each other on socmed what is delaying the announcement? We need to see them together immediately.
