Big Bang’s T.O.P in discussion to star alongside Kim Tae Hee in new drama ‘Jang Ok Jung Lives in Lov


It seems like Big Bang‘s T.O.P‘s acting career is definitely blooming as it has been reported that the idol is in discussion for a new drama!

T.O.P is said to be considering taking on a role in SBS‘s ’Jang Ok Jung Lives in Love‘ (temporary title) and possibly star alongside actress Kim Tae Hee, who has already been confirmed for the lead role.

YG Entertainment commented, “It is true that Big Bang’s T.O.P has been offered a role in ‘Jang Ok Jung’. He is currently positively reviewing the offer. However, as he is currently filming for his movie and also has to juggle Big Bang’s schedule, we are giving this much thought.”

We cannot reveal the details, but T.O.P has been offered a role that is very crucial in the drama,” they added.

As ‘Jang Ok Jung Lives in Love’ is a drama of the historical genre, if T.O.P does confirm, this will be his first role in a historical genre project.

The drama is currently scheduled to air next March and will revolve around the story of a Joseon Dynasty fashion designer, Jang Ok Jung.

Nope. He's a terrible actor. But, then again, so is she.

Oh please do say yes to this - Tabi in hanbok (or whatever u call te male ver of the tradiional wear) will be the as good as seeing him without a shirt on. I just have a thing abt guys in traditional costumes lately...and i somehow wish he won't be the lead. Cos i always find side characters in k-drama to be more interesting

OMG, I want to see TOP in a historical drama!
realme21 20th-Nov-2012 07:00 pm (UTC)
Top's face doesn't suit historical dramas same with Tae Hee.
If ever he accepts this, I'd be okay though I'd rather see Kim Rae Won with Tae Hee AGAIN please make it possible
izabera 20th-Nov-2012 07:04 pm (UTC)
Yes please
but I still want to see him in a comedy

Kim Tae Hee should forever be doing rom coms. Top is a shitty actor and too awkward to do rom coms so he should just give up.

Yeah baby!

Kim Tae Hee noona yesssssssssssssss
atelierlune 20th-Nov-2012 10:17 pm (UTC)
I saw "Top" and "historical drama" and rushed in.

I was so excited for a second man I was like OMG IS THIS A ROM COM? IS THIS A NOONA ROMANCE? IS TOP THE LEAD? but then it turned out to be a sageuk. a fusion sageuk but STILL. I cant fucking deal with sageuks. Its like even the fun ones like faith/arang/hong gil dong I can never fucking sit through. the only one I ever watched all the way through was Sungkyunkwan Scandal but the more time passes the more I think that was probably a fluke. Srsly. WHY DID IT HAVE TO BE A PERIOD DRAMA? Also TOP is so not suited for sageuks. he is a thoroughly modern man thanks v much. but blargh. I mean if he takes this and he's the lead or secondary lead I'll prob watch it but...for crying out loud TOP when will u pick a project that I actually want to watch? WHEN? WHEN? *grumbles*

if it isn't a comedy, i dread to see TOP acting in a serious sageuk
bababerry 21st-Nov-2012 08:07 am (UTC)
i actually can picture top with saeguk costume, he got sharp feature that fits
kim taehee's face on the other hand just scream romcom

Am I the only one who wants to see if his acting has improved first before I see this?
