Kim Ji Hoon returns in “Picking the Stars”

November 24, 2009

Kim Ji Hoon has been confirmed as the male lead in the SBS drama, Picking the Stars [별을 따다줘]. (Not actual English title) The drama tells the story of a 25 year old insurance company worker, Jin Bbal Kang, who is left to take care of her 5 siblings after her parents die unexpectedly. Kim Ji Hoon will play a laywer, Won Kang Ha, who meets Jin Bbal Kang at the insurance company. Won Kang Ha is a brilliant and handsome lawyer who doesn’t believe in love and sees woman as a way to satisfy a hobby. He meets Jin Bbal Kang and fall in love, after she breaks down his tough exterior. Seeing the name of the female lead (can mean “bright red”), the drama looks to be a fairly typical romcom affair.

The drama is being directed and written by writer (Jung Ji Woo) and director (Go Kyung Hee). It is scheduled to follow Temptation of Angel next January.

I will always have a special place in my heart for Kim Ji Hoon for being in Flowers for My Life. His last drama was Love Marriage with Kim Min Hee, which not the best drama in the world but fun to watch. I would like to see him do something a bit more serious, but to be completely superficial, I like looking at him. So I will probably be watching.

Han Ji Hye (East of Eden) has been offered the role of Jin Bbal Kang, but is still reviewing the script and has not made a decision on the project yet. The lucky Han Ji Hye is currently completing her movie after being handpicked by Director Lee Jun Ik to star in Like the Moon Escaping from Clouds [구르믈 버서난 달처럼] with Cha Seung Won.
