Yoo Seung-ho cast in Korean adaptation of Proposal Daisakusen

Yoo Seung-ho is heading to cable for his next project, a drama titled Operation Proposal, to air on channel TV Chosun.

It’s based on the 2007 Japanese drama Proposal Daisakusen starring Yamapi and Nagasawa Masami, and the role ought to give Yoo a chance to dial back the villainous route he took in Warrior Baek Dong-soo in favor of a gentler role. He plays a man who realizes that he’s in love with his longtime friend… at her wedding ceremony. Well, that’s awkward. Thankfully, he’s given a second chance to win his love by traveling back in time.

The series is described as a fantasy melodrama, and Yoo said, “I found the topic of time travel fresh, and the way he works hard to protect his first love is memorable.” It sounds like a whimsical heart-tugger, and I’m all for both of those things (and for Yoo), so bring it on, I say.

Writing the series is Yoon Ji-ryun of two prior school-set series, Sharp and Boys Before Flowers. Directing is PD Kim Woo-sun of daily dramas Can’t Stop and the recently wrapped You Are Quite Beautiful.

The drama will begin filming later this month, and plans for a February broadcast.

I like it. It's different and sweet, even if not really K drama material.

Isn't he abit young for the role? He's suppoused to be a alot older in the drama, mid to late 20s.
madelyn93 13th-Dec-2011 03:22 pm (UTC)
they stuffed yoon shiyoon in a role meant for kim jaewon, so why not this?

Just yesterday i thought about rewatching proposal again (ok and every time i see DKNY i just think "Don't knock New York!!!" XD)

looking forward to the rest of the cast so i can decide if i really want to watch this, cus i somehow think this is not godd k-drama material for some reason @_@
chikage_chan 13th-Dec-2011 06:12 pm (UTC)
ok and every time i see DKNY i just think "Don't knock New York!!!" XD
LOL me too!! XD
kamishey 13th-Dec-2011 03:21 pm (UTC)
awesome i always wanted to watch that drama but im one of those people who dislikes nagasawa misami.. so yay!
asnindie 13th-Dec-2011 03:54 pm (UTC)
My sis hates her too, all throughout the drama she'd just bitch about her constantly.
anconeous 13th-Dec-2011 03:27 pm (UTC)
I have an insane love for Yoo Seungho, it freaks me out every time I realize he's the same age as Taemin.
ms_rancha 13th-Dec-2011 03:29 pm (UTC)
let the female lead be jung so min!!!!!!!!!!!1
vikihpnerd 14th-Dec-2011 01:11 am (UTC)
she's too cute to play the lead...i think we need someone more mature
allthingsgood 13th-Dec-2011 03:31 pm (UTC)
was just watching warrior baek dong soo and wondering why the hell yoo seung-ho isn't in more dramas. not excited about this remake but so glad to see yoo do something mainstream that wasn't a total bore like god of study.
ghost_whisper 13th-Dec-2011 03:34 pm (UTC)
I Loved Proposal Daisakusen... I will probably check it out and cry if they screw it up... ;_; And if they do it well, I will probably cry too. I totally cried at the end of the original. ;_;
my_faux_pas 13th-Dec-2011 03:41 pm (UTC)
But he's so young.
anconeous 13th-Dec-2011 04:03 pm (UTC)
True. But his character goes back in time, so his young age may be a bit justified for that. :)
freezing_flames 13th-Dec-2011 04:10 pm (UTC)
omg Prodai is one of my fave jdramas

and he's too young O__O
pivotandsway 13th-Dec-2011 04:12 pm (UTC)
ugh I hated this drama.
asnindie 13th-Dec-2011 07:10 pm (UTC)
You're dead inside.
miki_831 13th-Dec-2011 04:27 pm (UTC)
hopefully it turns out much better than the japanese one
vikihpnerd 14th-Dec-2011 01:12 am (UTC)
second that!

although i thought ProDai was pretty good...not the best

"Writing the series is Yoon Ji-ryun of two prior school-set series, Sharp and Boys Before Flowers."

Not watching.
shocko_o 13th-Dec-2011 05:50 pm (UTC)
haha yep BBF was a sunken ship.
though tbh the writing was fairly logical, it was the acting & directing i had issues with.
shocko_o 13th-Dec-2011 05:57 pm (UTC)
prodai remains one of my favorite japanese dramas, despite the acting/writing flaws. i had never cried so hard for a drama, but i don't see why this should be named as a melodrama. the light, whimsical bits (in the friends, hallelujah chance!, etc) was what carried the angst of prodai.
chikage_chan 13th-Dec-2011 06:24 pm (UTC)
I'm still fearing what they'll do to Hanakimi and they get ProDai too... One thing is for sure though, they will NEVER be able to make a better soundtrack than the original /holds Chiisana koi no uta and Ashita hareru kana dearly
o_o_mai_o_o 13th-Dec-2011 08:14 pm (UTC)
lol what's with all the korean dorama remakes?
vikihpnerd 14th-Dec-2011 01:13 am (UTC)
actually looking forward to how they will make prodai better and how they will make Hana Kimi worst.

baboboy 14th-Dec-2011 12:07 am (UTC)
I loved his hair in the drama lol
akatsukichii 13th-Dec-2011 09:31 pm (UTC)
This is funny...this is the second drama Yoo Seung Ho is in that's a remake of a drama Yamapi is in...God of Study which was a remake of Dragon Zakura and now ProDai XD....how will he pull of hallelujah chance though? He has to make up his own...like Yamapi did XD
