Jung So Min Joins Seo In Guk for Korean Drama “Hundred Million Stars From the Sky”

Hundred Million Stars From the Sky - Jung So Min

And our leading lady Jung So Min (Because This is My First Life) is now confirmed to be joining Seo In Guk (Shopping King Louie) to star in the upcoming tvN drama Hundred Million Stars from the Sky. She will play an ad designer who was raised by her older brother who is a detective. Seo In Guk will play a mysterious worker at a microbrewery.

I was thrilled when Seo In Guk accepted the offer, and then I was really hoping to see this pairing with Jung So Min happen. And it has! Plus, we now have an offer out to Park Sung Woong (Life on Mars) to play the detective. I would certainly love to have him join this great cast!

Hundred Million Stars From the Sky is a remake of the Japanese drama of the same name. It follows the fateful romance of a mysterious man (Seo In Guk) suspected of murder and a woman (Jung So Min) whose life is completely changed after meeting him. The woman’s detective brother becomes obsessed with solving the murder case as the three embark on a dangerous journey.

Hundred Million Stars from the Sky is looking to air later in 2018 on tvN.

    I just read somewhere that SIG’s char is supposed to be somehow “innocent”. Meh, looks like they are going to water down the premise considerably. Guess Korea is still not ready to have a “bad guy” lead in their dramas. And I don’t mean jerk outside, marshmellow inside but a truly bad one.

      Well, I think we figured Korea usually tones things down most of the time anyways. And I’m fine with them giving it a Korean spin 🙂 Though I do think there have been dramas with pretty bad guy/villain types leads. Sure most of the time they aren’t irredeemable, but they can be quite scummy despite having their reasons for doing bad things. Of course that’s what makes them interesting characters verses just being any old villain. Even if I still hate a villain and completely oppose his reasons, I need to have understanding and some sort of sympathy for him even if it’s small, otherwise he’s usually on the boring side. And it is pretty sweet watching a bad guy turn from his ways especially if the drama stays dark and doesn’t reward him for it in true angsty fashion, lol

        Yup, that they do but I was sort of thinking that they’d at least keep the ‘bad guy’ premise from the original, even if they’d change the ending and part of the core relationships.

        I don’t think I’ve ever seen a lead quite like Ryo in kdramas. As I wrote back in the day “He’s charming, captivating, mesmerising and sexy as hell without even trying. Of course Ryo is also a very broken person, a sociopath with no feelings for anyone. He sees people, especially women as pieces in a game he plays for fun. Because he’s bored and because he can.” He doesn’t change either, not really – Yuko (Jung Soo Min’s char) is the only one he does have real feelings for. And therein lies the tragedy. I don’t remember if they ever really ‘explaned’ Ryo. As in, was he ‘born bad’ or made that way due to his early life? Drama wasn’t that deep. 🙂

          He’ll probably be a more standard kdrama rough around the edges bad guy. Maybe similar to the Ryo you described but a bit more wounded and good deep down. At least that’s how kdramas usually do it. You know, maybe give us more of a sad back story. He’ll start all mysterious and bad boy then they’ll soften him up. They’ll probably want to make him more sympathetic overall.

          I do feel like Seo In Guk could play the character more like you’re describing him though. He has a certain unique charm. It will be interesting to see what direction they go with the character. Although I would still lean towards they will make him a little more gooey on the inside, lol. But you never know 🙂


          • Timescout says:

            I’m surmising that’s how they are going to go with ‘Ryo’ in this adaptatinon too, more’s the pity. SIG could definitely do him much darker, I’m sure. We’ll see. The funny thing is that Ryo in the original doesn’t seem really threatening to begin with, though you can tell there’s something off right away. Yeah, I found him rather interesting. KimuTaku did a pretty good job, though he is somewhat limited as an actor. I keep wondering how one of these young and talented j-actors of today would do in the role. I’m pretty sure the drama would be even darker.

    Oooh…I like the sound of this one. This could become a pretty interesting drama. Murder cases usually are pretty interesting to watch, and the premise for this one sounds pretty cool 🙂

      I’m super excited for this one. I like the darker sounding tone surrounding the romance mixed with a murder investigation. And the cast is great! Really looking forward to watching this one 🙂
