Good bye Bi-Kyo, hello Hye-Bin!?

Fan Art by SilverWing

The news that Song Hye Kyo (27) and Hyun Bin (26) will play leads in an up and coming KBS drama has caused much excitement in the K-entertainment world. As soon as this news surfaced, not one, but THREE popular K-Ent blogs wrote entries on this at the same time! Now that's important news for you.

Will the popular-even-before-the-drama-is-aired pair be a hit? Fans of both these attractive stars are thrilled to no end at the mention of this "union". Will this be good-bye Bi-Kyo (referring to the Rain - Song Hye Kyo pair in Full House) and hello Hye-Bin? I bet there will be a huge fan following crashing in soon. The fan art and excitement have already started!

Expectations are high and both Hyun Bin and Hye Kyo who are CF king and queen in their own right, need a hit. A big one. Riding on the wave of their previous hits can only last for so long.

Glory days: Song Hye Kyo in her Full House role,
Hyun Bin in his My Lovely Samsoon days

Song Hye Kyo has been riding on her KBS drama Full House (2004) popularity for way too long now. Her movie ventures - My Girl and I (2005) and Hwangini (2007) were forgettable. They did not leave a good lasting impression at all.

Hyun Bin on the other hand, is most remembered for his role in MBC's My Lovely Samsoon back in 2005. It is still one of my favourite dramas to date. Hyun Bin was at the height of his career during his Samshik days. He then followed with the movie A Millionaire's First Love (2006) and the very draggy and * yawns * boring drama Snow Queen. None which gained him as much popularity as the hot tempered but yummilicious restaurant owner in MLSS. He needs another one of those roles...soon.

Song Hye Kyo and Hyun Bin will pair up in the new Korean drama called "The World That They Live In". The drama depicts the lives and stories of those involved in a drama production -- behind the scenes. Now, doesn't that sound awfully familiar? If it does, it is probably due to the fact that one of SBS most popular drama at the moment (On Air) found much success on this very same premise. If something is working so well, why not copy it?
It was reported that Song Hye Kyo and Hyun Bin both play producers. The drama starts airing in November 2008.

Hmm...will it be Hye-Bin or Hyun-Song or Bin-Kyo? Ah...whatever! ;-)

Are you looking forward to the union? Okay, okay, it's not like they are getting married or anything, but i bet many fans out there wished they were. ;-)

dada said...

isn't it weird that SHK has been staring in projects that are copies of other hit projects...ah watever..don't c any talent in her..but she's nice to look at!

ana said...

s long s i know, lee da hae is the one. my girl a copy of fullhouse. robber a copy of thank you.

but anyway, cant wait to watch it coz hyunbin oppa in it <3

Liz said...

This should be interesting *rubs hands in glee*

And the best part is, it's produced by the KBS network right? Malaysians, we get to watch it too!!! Bless Astro for KBS World.

jao said...

You are wrong there, ana. It's actually the other way around.

Full House was not copied from My Girl because Full House was shown in 2004 while My Girl was in 2005.

It was reported that this project was already been proposed way before On Air was broadcasted. It may or may not be true. But I remember that this drama was alrady been talked about before On Air because the producers could not decide on the actors.

roth said...

no wayyyy
the snow queen was a great drama.
if you found it boring...i guess you can't appreciate a real love story.

but beside that, this should be a great drama. both actors has been MIA too long now =D

fraulein said...

Yes, past glory can only last that long

Loved reading every bit of this post.

o-cha said...

Though I don't consider myself as a fan of either of the 2 leads...I'd still be curious to see how the two pair up in this drama.
Wish them the best.

ana said...

i mean that way. my girl copied fullhouse. fullhouse was aired in 2004, and it was a big hit. so they remake it with my girl.
and robber copied thankyou. thankyou was also a big hit last year, i love it very much and suddenly there was robber, which is almost the same, even the same main actor.
thats why i said, in my opinion, lee da hae likes staring in projects that copies other hit drama.

jicks said...

This pairing is a long-time calling!

It's almost too pretty to be true XP

As long as the series works out well I don't mind the level of originality of the script.

I see. Sorry about that ana.

fieryheart said...

I'm excited to see how these two would turn out in the drama.
Can't wait to watch it.Just hope that the story's going to be interesting and not draggy.
It would be a waste to have two eye candies but a storyline that sucks *sorry for my rudeness but I couldn't seem to think of any other words*.
