It has been a long wait but it’s certainly something worth waiting for. Actress Yoon Eun Hye will finally be returning to the small screen with a new drama this August after a near 2 years absence with MBC’s Coffee Prince.

Yoon Eun Hye will be returning with the drama called Lady Castle which is tentatively set for a 19th August premiere on KBS2TV. Lady Castle will be taking over the spot vacated by the lawyer drama, Partners in the Wed-Thus timeslot if everything goes according to schedule (barring drama extensions, etc). Competing dramas will be SBS’s Swallow the Sun starring Ji Sung, Sung Yuri, Lee Wan and MBC’s horror drama, Soul, starring Lee Seo Jin.

Lady Castle is a story about 3 daughters and the inheritance left by their father. Their lifestyle is disrupted after a poor man disguises himself as a housekeeper/manager of a rich house with an eye on the family’s hidden slush fund. He falls in love with the haughty second daughter (of three), Noh Yura, played by Yoon Eun Hye. Noh Yura is a lady who possesses a goddess-like beauty. She is strong-headed, selfish and the world revolves around her, where all things must go her way. Yet, Yura is lonely and longs to be loved, and for this, Yura is weak in front of true love and is one who you cannot help but love.

There’s no accounting for Personal Taste

Posted in Joo Ji Hoon, Yoon Eun Hye with tags , , on October 16, 2008 by koala41

And to think, we almost had Joo Ji-hoon (Devil) and Yoon Eun-hye (Coffee Prince) back together in Personal Taste [개인의 취향], playing a straight guy masquerading as a gay guy to live with a straight girl (who harbors a crush on her gay friend but thinks he’s playing for the other team).

Now, not only will these two not be appearing in the drama together, the entire drama production has fizzled.

The drama had been in the pre-production stages, but PD Kim Sang-ho (Fantasy Couple) explains that the reason for this project’s demise was due to a difficulty in casting. Yoon Eun-hye pulled out of the project while the scripts were being written and they were unable to recast. Furthermore, Joo Ji-hoon’s involvement in the project was greatly “exaggerated” by the press.

Bummer. The drama, which was to be based on the novel of the same name, sounded like farcical fun in the making. Maybe I’ll just have to read the book instead.

>>Yay!! Can’t wait for this one.. Yoon Eun Hye & Joo Ji Hoon together again in a new drama. ^^


Celebrating an early birthday in Japan

Posted in Entertainment News, Yoon Eun Hye with tags , , , on September 22, 2008 by koala41

Currently in between dramas, Yoon Eun-hye headed to Japan to celebrate her 24th birthday (25 in Korean terms) with Japanese fans on September 19.

The party was a little premature — her actual birthday isn’t until October 3 — but she took the day to interact with approximately 1,400 Japanese fans in attendance at Tokyo’s Nakano Sun Plaza Hall. Among the activities were a “question corner,” a dance-off with fans, and photo and handshaking time. Her recent CF jingle “Salad Song” was played, and Yoon sang a Japanese ballad originally recorded by Jpop duo Kiroro, “Nagai Aida.”

Toward the end of the event, Yoon explained, “I should have worn comfortable shoes — I regret wearing these. My legs hurt and I’m sorry to be showing you a tired appearance. Next time, I’ll come wearing comfortable shoes. I heard I received more than ten boxes of gifts — when I get back to the hotel, I’ll have to open them.” She said she enjoys being in Japan and promised to return.

Her popularity in Japan may not be on par with other Hallyu stars or even proportional to her fame in Korea, but she enjoys a sizable fanbase due to her two largest hits, Goong and Coffee Prince (the event had been planned to host 2,000, but only 1,400 attendees signed up, and Yoon explained that Hallyu men tend to command larger fanmeets than the ladies). Goong, which was an early 2006 show in Korea, aired in Japan last year, while Coffee Prince was also a big hit in Japan; in fact, this event progressed in talk-show format taking the concept of a “Coffee Prince Store #2.”
