Song Hye Kyo And Park Bo Gum Cast As Lovers In A New Drama?


News swept the kdrama community of the possibility of seeing Song Hye Kyo and Park Bo Gum in a drama together.

They were rumored to be returning with the upcoming drama “Boyfriend,” since then both actors’ agencies denied they accepted the offers and merely stated that it was one of the projects they were looking over.

“Boyfriend” tells the story of a woman who appears to have it all and an ordinary man who’s the complete opposite, it begs the question of whether its difficult to give up money and honor in exchange for a normal lifestyle.

Song Hye Kyo has been offered the role of Cha Soo Hyun, whose father occupied various political roles throughout his life, her family forced her to marry a chaebol son as soon as she graduated from college, but she eventually filed for divorce.

Park Bo Gum has been offered the role of Kim Jin Hyuk, an ordinary guy who works various part time jobs while searching for a full-time one. With the money he collected from his part-time jobs, he begins a journey he has been planning for a year.

“Boyfriend” is slated to air in the second half of 2018.

It has been explained that the drama is working on getting a director, as soon as this happens they will begin the process of casting and start filming right away.

My Thoughts

No! That is very weird!

I mean imagine, Park Bo Gum is a very close hoobae of Song Hye Kyo’s husband Song Joong Ki, it would be very awkward if he was kissing his wife, even if its on-screen, at least this is what I believe!

Two powerhouse names offered a good script. I actually like the reversal of roles, we usually have hot chaebol and poor leading woman, it’s the opposite here!

However, I’d prefer they cast another pretty unnie, I suggest Jang Nara, she’s so sweet. I doubt they will both accept the offer, I don’t know it feels weird!

What do you guys think?


  1. It just feels like the production is trying to drum up interest, hence the offer but they’re not serious about the casting them. Its just weird that they don’t have a director when they offered it to the 2, when both are much sought after and would most likely want to know these (pd, writer, co-stars) before making a decision.
