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.
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. 😉
