Highly doubt it! I don’t know when Lee Min Jung all of a sudden came into this entire drama around LSG’s potential Gumiho girlfriend, but as posted in earlier Gumiho news, an SBS producer said that LMJ along with Shin Se Kyung and Jeon Ji Hyun are being considered for the role. LMJ has been highly sought after since Boys over Flowers and then the recent Smile You. She’s also become a CF queen and is considered a good actress, but…
can’t see her in the Gumiho role or the drama in general. LMJ and LSG look good together for Kolon Sport, but she definitely looks older than LSG in the photos, and I think for the Gumiho drama it would be better for the girl to look similar in age or younger than LSG. Also, maybe it’s b/c Kolon Sports is more outdoorsy wear and so they’re not all made up b/c they’re supposed to look all natural, but can’t see them in a drama together now.
Anyway, Kolon Sport is probably loving the press buzz! Also, it just feels like this is typical SBS, which is why the network annoys me sometimes… for example, Family Outing, Strong Heart, etc to name just a few.

I’m really pulling for Shin Se Kyung now and have a good feeling it’s going to be her. She’s really a good fit for the Gumiho role and I can totally see her and Seunggi together; she may not have Han Hyo Joo’s peronality but I think she and Seunggi could have really great chemistry! If so, the tv ratings could be totally “daebak!” with the two of them. SSK also has become a CF queen and has become one of the IT actresses since Highkick through the Roof.
As for 2ne1’s Dara — it’s totally messed up that stupid journalists put out totally groundless articles just to get some attention. Based on early reports way back when around Gumiho, it seems that Dara really was considered but eventually it was seen not as the best fit by all parties. Plus, there was some production staff conflict early on and they all had different actresses in mind for the role. Anyway, hope her potential role in the upcoming Step Up movie works out.
Curious to know who people are pulling for and why… and please no hater comments :)
