[NEWS] Moon Geun-young confirmed for Mary Stayed Out all Night

Moon Geun-young confirmed for Mary Stayed Out all Night

Moon Geun-young and Jang Geun-seok in a romantic comedy together? Yeah, I’ll be watching.

Mary Stayed Out All Night is the manhwa adaptation that features Jang Geun-seok as a hippie musician, and now Moon will be signing up for a contract marriage with his character. Her Mary role is the daughter of a failed businessman and falls into a love triangle with an indie-band singer (Jang) and a perfect chaebol (as yet uncast).

Mon has been busy in her theatrical debut with the stage play Closer since August, and will jump into the drama as soon as the play wraps in October. It’ll premiere on KBS in October, airing on Mondays and Tuesdays after Sungkyunkwan Scandal wraps.

Seriously, sign me up! Moon has long been considered one of the best actresses of her generation, and she can wring emotion and intensity out of confused chaos (see: Cinderella’s Sister). She has, however, shied away from the romantic comedy genre, and I’d LOVE to see her tackle something light and fun. (Jang, as we know, is great in trendies.) The only rom-com I’ve seen her in is My Little Bride, which was AGES ago, but she was adorable in it.

Jang Keun-suk to play Indie rocker in new drama

Korean actor and singer Jang Keun-suk has signed on for a role in an upcoming KBS drama, according to his agency Tree J. Company on Friday.

Tree J. announced in a press release that he will be playing the role of an Indie rocker in the series, based on the web-based cartoon by writer Won Soo-yeon, tentatively titled “Mary is Staying Out Overnight.

Won Soo-yeon is the writer of the comic series “Full House” whose small screen adaptation in 2004 starred top Korean star Rain and actress Song Hye-kyo.

“Mary” is about a girl named Jung-in who has never been in a romantic relationship and instead has two fake marriages with two separate guys, a perfectionist and a leader singer of a band, with completely different personalities.

“I feel more pressured choosing a project that involves singing. It makes me wonder if I have a set image as an actor who only plays musicians in dramas,” Jang was quoted as saying, adding that he enjoyed reading the synopsis for “Mary. ”

“I feel like I am making a return and as an actor I get the most joy in starring in a new drama,” Jang continued to explain. “I am putting everything into ‘Mary’ and hope to show the audience something new.”

“Mary is Staying Out Overnight” will premiere in the country in November.

Jang, 23, rose to fame with his roles in MBC’s sitcom “Nonstop 4” (2003) and “Beethoven Virus” (2008). He became a household throughout Asia last year through his role of the eccentric lead singer in the hit SBS ‘series “Minamishineyo.”

He recently wrapped up his Asia tour in Korea last weekend, which kicked off six months ago, where he met with numerous fans in Taiwan, Beijing, Singapore, Tokyo, Osaka and Hong Kong.

In this situation, there is a compelling actor. Jang is right. Jang appealing to the fans, the shrinking of the wave in the actors stand out as almost the only significantly increase the number of fans in the Learn to go.

[NEWS]Jang Keun-suk: The prince of charms

Jang Keun-suk: The prince of charms

On the afternoon of September 5, the “2010 Jang Keun-suk Asia Tour The Last in Seoul” took place in Korea. In front of the fans from various countries in Asia including Korea, Japan, China and Taiwan, Jang Keun-suk, who appeared dressed like Steve Jobs with his black turtleneck and jeans, gave a fancy prensentation on himself for over 40 minutes. From how he was crowned the first boy to win a contest in 1995 picking the prettiest child in the country, to how he remains stubborn about “not getting a six pack on the abs despite continued demand for it,” to his pride in being able to say with his very own lips that he used to be a ‘fresh handsome boy’ during his teens, Jang’s unique eloquence in speaking had a charm about it which was not boring to listen to even for the viewer who is not a fan. The moment where he confesses, “My hair will get messed up if I put on this mask but I did it. [Raises voice] And it was for you!” shows the pinnacle of his showmanship.

The reason that he can even make his show off lines such as “Many people say ‘Jang Geun-suk’s cute abs’ but I’m only interested in having an S-line” or “The streets of Hong Kong have been blocked several times because of me” not sound annoying is because he knows in what light people see him as well as it also being his talent to be able to continuously makes jokes out of those remarks. It indeed was a fan meeting ‘of, by and for Jang Keun-suk.’ It is a Jang Geun-suk-ness which cannot be felt unless you have not been there.
