[11.05.28] Eric up for Myung-wol the Spy (via Dramabeans)

Sorry I’ve been away for the past week or so… Had to deal with a big personal event 🙂 Anyway I’m back and will be catching up with the news updates and all, and of course the gorgeous pics from Eric’s fanmeeting – so yes, stay tuned for the updates!

For now, something about Eric’s next (possible) drama – I just wish the official announcement will come out soon… This drama sounds so fun!


From Dramabeans:

According to new reports, Eric is currently the top contender for the new drama Myung-wol the Spy, which means we oughtta put those lingering Poseidon hopes to bed now. It just ain’t happening.

At first I was a little disappointed that the much-beleaguered Poseidon is dead — Eric and Kim Kang-woo as rivals and teammates in a counterterrorism unit? On the sea? (Read: lots of ripped bodies getting wet.) That’s a no-brainer — but then I recalled the plot of Myung-wol the Spy, and I’m back to excited.

If you’ll recall, Myung-wol is about a North Korean spy (Han Ye-seul) who infiltrates South Korea with her spy colleague and possible love interest (Lee Jin-wook)…who then falls in love with a Hallyu star. (That would be Eric.) How perfect is that?

After initial reports broke naming Eric to the cast, his reps hastened to counter with statements that he’s “favorably considering” the role, but hasn’t decided yet. The fact that they’re not denying it gives me hope that the deal is close to being struck — it would have to be, with the drama needing a leading man and scheduled to premiere on July 4.

The drama’s described as a fun romance, which is GREAT, because I was hoping it would skew light-hearted rather than aiming to be IRIS: The Romance Files. Plus, there’s a little something offbeat about both Han Ye-seul and Eric — they’re not quite 4-D personalities, maybe more like 3-and-a-half-D — and I think together, they’d be wacky and hilarious. Man, I’d pay money to see them speaking Konglish together. Hee!

Myung-wol the Spy will replace Baby-Faced Beauty on Mondays and Tuesdays on KBS.

  1. Even though Eric’s mgmt company is being cautious at this point, all the other signs from what they said previously makes me has very good vibe that this one will pull through…. may be they’re just ironing out all the details…

    I really hope this drama will lean more toward the comic side. Really like Han Ye Seul’s snobbish character in Couple of Troubles and of course we know Eric does well with comedy…. hello Super Rookie hello 😀 😀 😀

  2. everyday i open this site.. really wonder where you go… finally i can read a very good news from you.. thanks for the update ^_^

  3. oh my my my, i can’t wait on this project, Im just praying that it would start soon. MAY I KNOW who is her leading lady here? Eric is really fit for this drama, im sure all of the eric mania out there have the same feelings about this news EXCITED.

      1. thank you phi, Im quite a new fan of the korean world, except shinhwa. im fervently hoping that this will star soon and finish all the way unlike poseidon. i also wish that he will finish the drama WOLF which was stopped long time ago
