Jung Kyung Ho cast in tvN drama

Jung Kyung Ho has selected his next project, tvN’s When the Devil Calls Your Name. This drama is about a man who sold his soul to the devil ten years ago for youth and success. But as soul collection day draws near, he bargains with the devil for an extension of their contract.

Jung Kyung Ho will play the star composer who has sold his soul to the devil. For the past five years, he’s held top status and has amassed the most royalties in the industry with skills that are almost otherworldly. However, five days before his soul is to be collected, he desperately begins to bargain with the devil using his own life as collateral. The devil’s conditions are this: He must find three other people who have promised to sell their souls and take their contracts. In the process, he discovers that his wealth and success came from stealing the talent and life of a young woman.

Human melo drama When the Devil Calls Your Name will be directed by Circle PD Min Jin-ki, and it is scheduled to air sometime in the latter half of next year on tvN.

JKH's become one of my favorite actors and after his dramas this year (Prison Playbook and Life on Mars), I completely trust him to pick good dramas and deliver. This one sounds super interesting, I'm looking forward to see who they cast as the devil. I loved Circle and I think the PD is perfect for this.

Park Se Wan and Jang Dong Yoon to lead "Dance Sports Girls"

School 2017 co-stars Park Se-wan and Jang Dong-yoon will be reuniting in the Monday-Tuesday KBS drama Dance Sports Girls. This youth drama is based on a documentary film by the same name and tells the coming-of-age story of six girls who enter a dance sports competition. The documentary was originally planned to portray the story of the declining shipbuilding industry in Geoje, a city located in South Gyeongsang Province, just off the coast of the port city of Busan. However, the producer decided to tell the story of students in the dance sports club of Geoje Girls’ Vocational High School. The documentary won an award from the Baeksang Arts Awards.

For the drama, Park Se-wan will play a self-absorbed, arrogant adolescent student who dreams of leaving her hometown of Geoje to become a movie producer. She tries out for the Dance Sports Competition because first prize is special admittance into university. Her fellow teammates and friends will be played by Lee Joo-young, Joo Hae-eun, Shin Do-hyun, Lee Yoo-mi, and Kim Soo-hyun.

Jang Dong-yoon will play a repressed dance lover who has to hide his real passion because his father is a macho man who wants his son to like “manly” things. Even though he’s tried out all different kinds of hobbies that are considered “manly,” he prefers ballroom dancing. His mother, who was a dance major herself, introduced him to dancing, and although he pretends that soccer is his favorite sport, he loves watching dance performance clips.

Scriptwriter Kwon Hye-ji and director Park Hyun-seok previously collaborated for Individualist Ms. Ji-young. The eight episode drama Dance Sports Girls will begin airing in December, following the end of Matrimonial Chaos.

I really like both leads (I've loved Jang Dong Yoon's chipmunk face in everything I've seen him in since Solomon's Perjury) and this looks like it will be a good opportunity for some new actresses. I enjoyed Individualist Ms Ji-young. I have hopes this will be as cute as Girls Generation 1979.
