aside questions regarding Kim Hyun Joong andSS501, there have been a lot of interest about whether or not Kim Hyun Joong would be cast in MBC’s upcoming drama It Started With A Kiss (Playful Kiss).
Kim Hyun Joong made a huge hit during his jump from singing to acting career when he was cast in Boys Over Flowers last year. Like Boys Over Flowers, It Started With A Kiss is also a drama that is produced by production company Group Eight as well as made from a popular Japanese manga, but this time with Itarazura Na Kiss.
Just last month, Park Bo Young was indicated as a likely female lead of this drama from over 100 people who have auditioned for the role.
CNBLUE’s Jung Yonghwa was also rumored to be another possibility for the main male role, but due to his busy schedule, it became unlikely.
Production company Group Eight didn’t deny yet confirm about the possibility of Kim Hyun Joong to be cast in the drama as they stated, “Nothing is yet confirmed.”
It Started With A Kiss is scheduled to premiere after the end of MBC’s Wednesday-Thursday drama Road No. 1.
