Let me pinch myself..it’s not a dream, right? Because Hyun Bin is returning to dramaland after 4 years in his first drama after completing mandatory military service. It is actually a very pleasant surprise because I expected him to do only movies for some time before turning towards dramas. And what comes especially as a bolt from the blue is his choice — an SBS drama titled Hyde, Jekyll And I — reports were floating around from sometime that he might sign up Kim Eun Sook‘s (Secret Garden, Heirs) forthcoming show Descended From The Sun or he would confirm sageuk Unprecedented; and there was this whole fuss about Kill Me Heal Me casting. But lo and behold, he confirmed Hyde, Jekyll And I, which is based on a webtoon and as the name suggests, it is about a man who suffers from multiple personality disorder, in this case two. On one hand, he is cold and blunt, but a sweet and innocent person on the other. These two characteristics of the same man will form a love triangle with the leading lady. LOL. This is an absolutely fantastic premise! I love Hyun Bin a lot and his dimples are to die for. The female role is definitely a very coveted one and it is to be seen who the lucky girl is. I have this long list of actresses that I want to see opposite him. I just hope the drama won’t go for pretty face with zero acting calibre.
Hyun Bin did movie The King’s Wrath as his first acting project and I’m so, so happy that I’m getting a chance to see him continuously for 10 weeks straight. He is an amazing actor with lots of charisma and hotness (yes, I’m a bit shallow). He has actually played this type of dual characters in Secret Garden where we all know how brilliantly he portrayed not only his, but Ha Ji Won‘s character’s traits as well. And he has a great comic timing.
Hyde, Jekyll And I will come from the writer of Choeongdamdong Alice and directed by the PD of 49 Days and Yawang. It is planning for a January premiere on SBS. So excited!
I watched The King’s Wrath on the plane, and was reminded all over again of Hyun Bin’s excellent acting chops and screen presence. Yay that he’s coming back to dramaland! Sounds like a fun premise if it’s done right – I’m crossin’ my fingers! ^^
Wow that you get to see Korean movies in your flights…they are very unpopular here 🙂
Yes…fingers crossed that it will be a fun ride!
Aw! Hopefully that will change as Hallyu continues to take over the world! I didn’t used to get Korean movies in-flight, but now, there are usually a few to choose from. Some flights even carry kdramas, if you can believe it! And I also watched the first episode of Grandpas Over Flowers on a flight as well! These changes sure have made traveling more attractive 😉
OMG…even dramas!! That’s like the best thing ever on a flight 😉
This is indeed good news. I am a fan too. LOL on his “hotness”. I have certainly enjoyed mutiple male actors “hotness” this year!
Hahaha….yeah…one of the most important feature of K-actors is their hotness 😉
Wow. Really?? FINALLY!!!! I’ll expect this drama, just hope that the leading actress won;t be a disappointment…
Yes….hopefully the leading lady will be just like him…good in acting!
Oh cool, I think he’ll do a really good job with that role, definitely. I can’t wait!
No doubt about it….can’t wait 😀
CANNOT WAIT. I love Hyun Bin in any and everything. Will definitely be watching and recapping.
Yes….it’s a must watch for me as well! 😀
I’m super stoked about this… and please, Gods of dramaland, don’t give us a leading lady that can’t kiss!!!! Not for him. It would make me cry. Can we cast Ha Ji Won? 🙂
LOL….actually the actress has been cast now…she’s Han Ji MIn…and I know nothing about her 😛
I’m very excited about him being in another drama. He really is one of my favourite actors.
