[NEWS] 170626 B1A4′s Baro joins the cast of upcoming KBS drama 'Manhole' in a leading role.

170625 B1A4 Baro has confirmed to join Uee and Jaejoong in the new KBS drama Manhole

Baro joins Jaejoong and UEE in the cast of 'Manhole'

Baro has been cast in the Wednesday-Thursday drama 'Manhole'.

He'll be playing Jo Seok Tae, Jaejoong's character's friend who Jaejoong sees as more of a servant. As he's reported to be a main character, it's likely that his character, UEE's character, and Jaejoong's character will have a love triangle.

UEE and Jaejoong have been announced as the leads of the drama. It revolves around a man who goes back in time to stop a marriage. Jaejoong is playing the role of Bong Pil, an unemployed man who's been studying for the civil servant exam for three years, while UEE is playing his love interest, Kang Su Jin.

The drama will start airing in August.

One of the most popular concepts often used in K-dramas is the time slip. Though it was used numerous times throughout Hallyu such as in "Rooftop Prince," "Nine: Nine Time Travels," "God's Gift - 14 Days," "Time Slip Dr. Jin," and the phenomenal "My Love From Another Star," it seems it really took off over the past couple of years.
Since 2015, there have been plenty of popular time slip K-dramas that aired included the phenomenal "Goblin" and most recently "Tunnel." Now the next hyped time slip K-drama now has its main cast: Kim Jaejoong and #Uee.

KBS reveals the K-pop idol actors to be the main leads

The Korean Broadcasting System (KBS) confirmed that Kim Jaejoong and Uee have both been cast as the leads in their upcoming K-drama.
The tentative or working title is "Manhole" and it is a comedy about a man who goes back in time to stop a marriage from happening in the present.
Kim Jaejoong will play Bong Pil, student studying for the civil servant exam for three years. He is taking his time with the test and doesn't feel the need to "grow up" thus making him the token unemployed person in the neighborhood. This in turn makes him the "disgrace" of his family as he depends heavily on his father who is a postmaster. Uee will play Kang Su Jin, someone who knows Bong Pil but has built a wall between herself and him. The closer she gets to getting married, the more unsure she feels as she see's Pil's love for her differently.

"Manhole" a recipe for success with seasoned K-pop idol actors and popular K-drama concept?

It is possible that KBS possibly has a hit K-drama with "Manhole." It has previously been explained that the time slip concept is very popular now.
However, the fact that the main lead characters are played by K-pop idol actors must be stressed. Over the course of Hallyu, many Korean television networks have cast K-pop idols in hopes of attracting attention. Their popularity often bring in scores of viewers who idolize them in their respective K-pop acts.
The only issue with K-pop idols being given main lead parts are the fact most of them are terrible at acting. Pertaining to "Manhole," it looks like KBS is negating this general fact with Kim Jaejoong and Uee. Jaejoong is a seasoned actor in both K-dramas and K-movies and even had a prominent role in a past time slip K-drama, "Time Slip Dr. Jin." Uee is recognized as one of the best K-pop idol actors in which she actually is believable when she does act. This is best seen in "Marriage Contract" in which she won numerous awards for her lead role as Kang Hye Soo.

Ultimately, KBS wants to continue their success with the Wednesday and Thursday time slot at 9:55 p.m. KST. Right now, "Queen for Seven Days" is airing on it, but the two K-dramas before it, "Chief Kim" and "Queen of Mystery," have both enjoyed high viewership. "Manhole" will air after "Queen for Seven Days" concludes. #KDramas #KimJaejoong

JJ Ments (Translations via rubypurple_fan)

Think of someone who is good looking. JJ: Yamapi. He's masculine and humble. I say it not because he's my friend.
Singing solo, I do rock. When in a group, I change my singing voice to which it's suitable.
I wear a lot of simple, comfortable clothes.
...on hair color, when I went blonde, people say I look good with black.
I usually exercise at home, doing weights (using dumbbells)
I am eating frozen food lately. I eat natto and mix it with kimchi.
JJ singing voice is half-nasal so when he has a cold, it is difficult to sing.

JJ gets along easily with people because he listens to their stories to understand them.
JJ: I don't know how to get over being sad. I don't let people around me know if I'm sad. I will contact them when I'm already okay.
JJ: I don't play music or TV. I'm just at home. Somehow, my heart is closed (to everyone) if I'm sad.

JJ msg to fans: Please stay healthy. Health is most important.

I think they are playing a game where they have to guess the song but only the intro is played.
Fans ask JJ to dance but he said he forgot the choreography already. ^^;;
JJ: I was scheduled to come back (from JP) yesterday but there was accident on the way so I missed my flight. That's why I only arrive today

One Kiss - JP version


JJ: The venue is elegant and you are all seated. I feel like I'm singing alone so I'm getting nervous.

Keshou! JP version!
Before Keshou, he sang 'although we met, we will meet again' from No.X album.

"I wrote 'although we met, we will meet again' before going to the army."

Kiss B - rock version
JJ: Everyone, you don't need to stand. I'll do my best singing it standing alone. (everyone wants to stand upon hearing the song)

I'll protect you - JP version
Fans singing so beautifully~~ <3
JJ: (before singing I'll protect you) Do you still remember the lyrics? This is a test yo.^^;;
Pass! Fans still memorize the lyrics! ^^

Owari ~ the end~ FM lasts for 3 hours~

’s Kim Jaejoong And Confirmed As Leads In Upcoming Time Slip Drama

On June 23, it was confirmed that JYJ’s Kim Jae Joong and UEE have both been cast as leads in KBS’s upcoming time-slip drama called “Manhole” (tentative title).
KBS’s “Manhole” is a comedy drama about a man who goes back in time to stop a marriage from happening in the present. Kim Jaejoong will be playing the lead male role of Bong Pil, who is a character that has been studying for the civil servant exam for three years and is the neighborhood’s token unemployed person. He’s an immature character who doesn’t feel the need to grow up and depends heavily on his father, who is a postmaster.
UEE will be taking on the lead female character of Kang Su Jin, a character that has built a metaphorical wall between herself and Bong Pil for 18 years; however, as her marriage date draws closer, her feelings waver as she begins to see Bong Pil’s love for her in a different light.
“Manhole” is set to begin airing after “Queen for 7 Days” comes to an end.
