Actors who began as singers dominate Wednesday-Thursday TV

Wednesday-Thursday nights is a haven filled with actors who began as singers that can dance, are good looking, and have strong acting potential.

In addition to Lee Seung Gi who is already acknowledged for his singing and solidifying his place as an actor and Kim Hyun Joong who started with flowerboy group SS501, Rain who has been very busy with many activities will also be appearing as the main lead in a Wednesday-Thursday drama.

Singer-Actors Seunggi, Hyunjoong, Mickey Yoochun

In addition to the Wednesday-Thursday drama slot buzz (Seunggi for My Girlfriend is a Gumiho; Hyunjoong for Playful Kiss; and Yoon ShiYoon for Baker King), fellow 1986er Micky Yoochun has been thrown in the anticipation mix. Although Micky’s drama Sungkyunkwan Scandal is on Monday-Tuesdays, because it’s on KBS and he’s also a singer-actor, there’s a lot of interest at how all 3 dramas will play out against one another.  Further, all 3 guys are singing OST tracks for their dramas…


SeungGi’s thoughts on Rain and Kim Hyun Joong

Okay, first off – I think it’s great that non-Korean speaking kpop fans are translating Korean articles and news to share with other fans, like I’m wondering what life was like before google translate?!  However, I find it incredibly annoying when the translations are totally inaccurate or taken out of context!  It’s one thing when it’s just minor as I’m sure there have been times when I’m off too or purposely chose to leave out stuff that wasn’t relevant.  But when you’re actually translating what someone is said to have quoted, then you should definitely double check your stuff!  So with that said, there’s a lot of anticipation, especially tv ratings-wise for the upcoming dramas at the Wed-Thurs spot among My Girlfriend is a Gumiho, Fugitive, and Playful Kiss…

Since debuting a year ago, Yoon Shi Yoon has taken over in his first lead role in the Wednesday-Thursday drama “Baker King Kim Tak Goo.”  His drama is getting a lot of attention for beating out dramas in the same time slot, MBC’s “Road Number One” and SBS’s “Bad Guy” and maintaining its number one position.
