Reunions.

It seems that the current trend in Korean drama casting these days is to reunite actors who have previously worked in another project. I’m not sure when it all started, but the first one that came to my mind are Jeon Ji Hyun and Kim Soo Hyun, both of whom have worked before as Yennicall and Zampano in the movie Thieves before pairing up in the now-classic K-Drama hit, You Came From the Stars. [Edit] Correction: the earliest I could think of now are Park Shin Hye and Jung Yong Hwa from You Are Beautiful to Heartstrings.

Other on-screen couples who have reunited for another project are:

Lee Dong Wook and Lee Da Hae – from My Girl, to Hotel King.
Jang Hyuk and Jang Na Ra – from Successful Story of a Bright Girl, to the upcoming Korean remake of the Taiwanese drama Fated To Love You.
Eric Mun and Jung Yoo Mi – from Que Sera Sera to the upcoming KBS2 drama Discovery of Romance
Kim Soo Hyun and Suzy – from Dream High, to Suzy’s cameo in You Came From The Stars (then again, they never really ‘separated’ as they have been the image models for Bean Pole apparel since Dream High days up to the present)

The latest news is that after eleven years, the Stairway to Heaven couple of Kwon Sang Woo and Choi Ji Woo might reunite on screen again for the drama “Temptation.

I can only wish that my Full House couple – no, I’m not talking about Kim Sung Soo and Han Eun Jung – would reunite for another project, too. Or is that next to impossible now? Should I bring out my “when pigs fly” card?

Edit: I’ve just realized that a Full House couple has already reunited on screen. Rain and Kim Sung Soo in R2B. :neutral:

Speaking of BiKyo…

Rain is already confirmed to attend the Shanghai Film Festival for his Chinese movie, Hong Yan Lu Shui. There are persistent rumors that Song Hye Kyo might attend, as well, for the press conference of her new Chinese movie, I Am Queen.

Dear universe:

Do your thing.

Sincerely,
Agent P.

  1. I think re-unions happen because it is hard to pair up actors and actresses that have not yet collaborated and yet of the same class. Therefore, it is really no harm to re-pair them , given that most of them got good viewing rates in their previous project.

    As for I am Queen, it is confirmed that there will be a presscon and the whole team will be present. We will see if there will be a chance that the Korean gang meets up at Shanghai, given that SSH is a close oppa of Hyekyo.

  2. Indeed the trend is noticeable. First was Shin Hye and Yong Hwa in 2011 bit I think the trend started to kick in early 2013 when Jo Hyun Jae and Han Chae Young reunited for Ad Genius (though as second leads). More reunion news came after that. I still want to hope for BiKyo ;) . Who could probably initiate it between them too? hmm.. Just like in Hotel King wherein Dong Wook personally called Da Hae to asks if she’s up for it. I heard Rain is considering a new kdrama entitled ‘A SONG for you’ :whee!:
