Here’s Your Chance, Park Min Woo!

One of the most fascinating episodes of Roommate I’d seen was the one with Min Woo’s freak-out at Kang Joon, a scene which was rather uncomfortable for all involved (including the watchers). It was only after a sit down with Lee Dong Wook that we learned it was due to his frustrations over how his career was going. Knowing this made the whole situation go down just a little bit easier.

A very little bit. (But then again I’m Kang Joon biased.)

I can understand his frustrations as, while we all know of him, he’s definitely been more of a side character than a B-Lead–let alone having a shot at being the Big H.

But all that has changed with the announcement of this new drama, Romance Blues. Those of you who have forgotten and or forgiven his petulant behavior on season one of Roommate, its time to get your celebration on.

While I still look at him sideways, I do find his dimples to be adorable, so I’m sure my irritation will melt away with a few flashes of those babies. Not to mention–from the sounds of it, all signs point to this show being super cute, possibly charming, and full of heart.


Min Woo will play a guy who gets paid to go on dates and the girl, played by Kim Ji An, gets paid to write love letters. Both are scared to fall in love but, as you can clearly see, they are perfect for each other.

Come on! Doesn’t that sound like a bucket overflowing with cuteness? Is it me or is there actually a fair amount of upcoming dramas that I’m really looking forward to? This month is Producers and Orange Marmalade, later this year is Song Joong Ki’s post military drama Descendants of the Sun, and now this. Our drama dance cards are filling up fast!

Way to go Min Woo. Despite Roommate, I do think you’re adorable (in honestly it’s the dimples) and I hope that this chance works out for you.

    Aww, I’m happy for him, loved him in Modern Farmer. The Roommates thing was awful, broke my heart. I cannot wait for all the dramas you listed and am super excited that Sung Joon has a new leading role coming up! It’s going to be a great kdrama summer 🙂

      Wasn’t it awful–and then they had to stay in the same room together after? Awk-ward!

      Here’s to a great Kdrama summer!

    I guess having felt similarly slighted at times in my life, I was never put off by his behavior. In fact, I understood and made allowances. I’m so happy he’s getting recognized.

      I was more understanding once he had the discussion with Dong Wook about why he freaked out, but it was a while before that happened and I felt soooo bad for Kang Joon and I could feel the awkwardness of his position.
